Last night’s Feh Channel brought us a lot of sensational Fire Emblem Heroes news, not least being the start of a brand new story, dubbed Book II, featuring the clash between kingdoms of fire and ice.
Not long after the broadcast, some Japanese gaming websites (including 4Gamer) were given a bunch of artwork of the new original characters introduced in Book II, including Fjorm and Sutr, but also the two other villains in the Book II trailer.
While we wait for Book II to come out, let’s take a look at these new characters shall we? For reference, the artwork for these characters was drawn by Maeshima Shigeki, a manga illustrator who also provided artwork for normal Xander and both variants of Camilla.
To keep us occupied before the upcoming Feh Channel in a few days, Fire Emblem Heroes has added a bunch of new special maps and quests to encourage players to craft and enhance Sacred Seals.
Altogether there are 5 maps with 3 difficulty levels each; completing on Normal and Hard awards 10 Sacred Coins, while Lunatic awards 1 Orb. Meanwhile the quests dish out 2 additional Orbs and 50 Sacred Coins.
Furthermore, for 10 days until the end of the event (on 27th November 2017.), there will be a Log-in Bonus that provides a total of 60 Sacred Coins and 20 of each Great Badge. So that’s a total of 210 possible Sacred Coins just from this event!
If you’re not sure what Sacred Seals to craft or enhance, the developers have even revealed a list of the top 10 most owned seals. At number 1, by a fair margin, is Distant Def 3. The full top 10–as well as the quests–can be found below.
To prepare for the upcoming update at the end of November (presumably version 1.9), Fire Emblem Heroes will be offline for maintenance between 14th November at 11 pm (UTC) and 15th November at 2 am (UTC).
For reference, the downtime ends 1 hour and 30 mins before the next scheduled Feh Channel broadcast starts. So, with luck, it won’t be long before we know what’s in the mysterious planned update!
Not long after Fire Emblem Heroes brought back the Alm and Celica Bound Hero Battle, another Bound Hero Battle is getting a repeat run: Cecilia and Lilina.
Like before, there are new time-limited quests that award Orbs to entice those who already cleared the maps the first time. The Bound Hero Battle and related quests will run until the daily rollover on 16th November 2017.
