Heroes: Upcoming Maintenance (and Game Update)

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!

Heroes: Cecilia and Lilina’s Bound Hero Battle Returns

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.

Quest Description Reward
Clear Bound Hero Battle With Alfonse on your team, win the Bound Hero Battle against Cecilia & Lilina 1 Orb
Clear Bound Hero Battle With Sharena on your team, win the Bound Hero Battle against Cecilia & Lilina on Lunatic or higher 1 Orb
Defeat Cecilia Defeat Lvl 40 or higher Cecilia with Alfonse 1 Orb
Defeat Lilina Defeat Lvl 40 or higher Lilina with Sharena 1 Orb

Heroes: Death Blow Summoning Focus

Fire Emblem Heroes has unleashed another skill-based Summoning Focus, this time featuring three heroes with the fearsome Death Blow skill: Elincia, Delthea and Klein.

As dedicated players will know, Death Blow grants +6 Attack during the player phase. Elincia and Delthea are both fantastic units to have as well. The Summoning Focus lasts for quite a while, until the daily rollover on 23rd November 2017.

Warriors: Upcoming Free DLC/Update for Japan

Update: The free DLC is coming to Europe, North America, etc. on the same day.

The Japanese Fire Emblem Warriors website has updated with news about a version 1.2.0 update arriving on 16th November 2017, as well as a free English voice pack (just like we got a free Japanese voice pack).

Whereas 1.1.0 merely added the ability to buy DLC and a few quality of life improvements, the new update will include new battles, costumes and gameplay features.

To begin with, there will be new costumes for Rowan and Lianna, pictured above, dubbed “Gold Prince” and “Gold Princess” respectively.

Next, a new and rather intriguing weapon attribute has been introduced, which we’ll tentatively call “Crushing Blow”. If equipped, attacks will trigger “Armour Break”, which removes the foe’s armour, revealing their… well, underwear.

So just like Sophie’s skill or the Raider weapons in Fates. Except Armour Break lowers the Defence and Resistance stat, so it actually has gameplay merit. The catch is that if you’re hit by a foe’s Strong attack, your character will get inflicted by Armour Break.

If that’s not enough, a new History Map “Heroic Arena” will be available to play. According to the description, it will focus on Rowan and Lianna as they battle against other heroes in the arena. Perhaps you’ll get their new costumes by completing it?

Finally, there will be some extra gameplay enhancements including the ability to sell multiple weapons at once(!), new blessings in the Temple and various bug fixes, etc.
