It’s time for another short Tempest Trials in Fire Emblem Heroes! Tempest Trials Mini: Stepping into the New Year begins today and will last for the next week.
Masked Marth seems to keep interrupting various festivals. Concerned, she reaches out to her newest heroes, hoping they’ll be ready for battle…
When you’re ready to dive in, head to the Tempest Trials button in the upper left of the Battle screen. The opening page contains all pertinent info, including links to start a stage or view your rewards. The final map this time around is based on the Endgame map of Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest, and Takumi is the final boss.
As this is a “Mini” Tempest Trials, the rewards structure is slightly different from usual. You can still earn the same amount of rewards as before, but with fewer total points needed; the max reward is reached at only 50,000 points. Here are some of the reward highlights:
- Units: 4★ New Years Corrin at 1,000 and 5★ New Years Corrin at 15,000.
- Sacred Seals: Seal Attack 1 at 6,000, Def Ploy 1 at 10,000, Quick Riposte 1 at 20,000.
- Wind Blessing at 12,500.
As usual, you can also earn a large amount of Orbs, and also some smaller prizes such as Shards, Crystals, Hero Feathers, and Sacred Coins. Daily Quests are also back for Refining Stones and Stamina Potions, as well as more Crystals and Hero Feathers.
Tempest Trials Mini: Stepping into the New Year will end on 23 January at 6:59am UTC.
A brand new Grand Hero Battle is now available in Fire Emblem Heroes! You can challenge Grand Hero Battle: Oliver in the Special Maps menu. Check out his skills and abilities at the bottom of the article.
Oliver’s GHB is available in three different difficulty modes: Hard, Lunatic, and Infernal. Beat all three maps to earn one 3★ copy and two 4★ copies of Oliver, plus 2,000 Hero Feathers! The map below shows the layout and enemy placement for the Infernal battle. The map includes the new Trenches introduced in Update 2.1.
Grand Hero Battle: Oliver will be available for a little over a week, ending on 23 January at 6:59am UTC.
Another bite-sized Tempest Trials is coming to Fire Emblem Heroes! Tempest Trials Mini: Stepping into the New Year is coming next week. As preparation, you can try your luck at the associated Summoning Focus to snag up 5★ versions of the Hoshidan siblings Ryoma, Hinoka, and Sakura.
As expected, all three of these units will be Bonus Allies in the upcoming Tempest Trials Mini. Each of them, along with Alfonse, gives a 20% bonus to your final score. The 40% Bonus Allies are the seasonal New Years heroes: Takumi, Camilla, Azura, and M!Corrin.
New Years M!Corrin may not be available in the Happy New Year! banner, but everyone will be able to get their hands on him soon. As expected, M!Corrin will be the hero prize in this Tempest Trials Mini! Since this is the smaller version of the Trials, you can get his 5★ version at only 15,000 points. You can also see a Wind Blessing at 12,500.
Tempest Trials Mini: Stepping into the New Year begins on Tuesday, 14 January and runs for one week, ending on the 23rd.
Three new heroes have arrived in Fire Emblem Heroes! Summoning Focus: World of Dawn contains 5★ focus units from Radiant Dawn: Micaiah, Sothe, and Zelgius. Check out their skills in our earlier article.
Releasing alongside the new banner is also our first story update for Book II! Book II, Chapter 3: Guided by a Dream is now available. It features the above characters, as well as Oliver. There are maps total in three difficulties, for 15 more Orbs! We also get a new Log-In Bonus for another 13 Orbs throughout the next 10 days.
There are also some related quests for the new story update. You can earn up to five additional Orbs for beating the Lunatic versions of the new maps under certain conditions. Check out the full quest listing below.
Summoning Focus: World of Dawn and the associated story quests will be available for about two weeks, ending on 25 January.
