Complimenting the on-going Starter Support campaign for Fire Emblem Heroes, a set of new beginner-friendly “Helping Hand” quests have been added.
These quests will be available from 21st March to 5th April 2017 at 7.59 AM UTC and reward a total of 12,000 Universal Shards when completed, great for improving low level characters.
Amusingly the Japanese notification screen made a slight blunder, claiming crystals (used to level up Level 20+ characters) could be obtained. An additional notice was put forward, informing users about the mistake.
Starting today, the Japanese Twitter account for Fire Emblem Heroes is running a daily community quiz, with a bunch of Orbs and Hero Feathers up for grabs.
Each day, for up to 15 days, there will be a Fire Emblem-related multiple choice question posted on Twitter. If the correct answer gets the most votes, all players will receive a prize.
Questions are divided into 3 difficulty levels: Normal, Hard and Lunatic. The harder the question, the better the prize:
- Normal (5 questions): 1 Orb
- Hard (5 questions): 500 Hero Feathers
- Lunatic (5 questions): 1 Orb, 500 Hero Feathers
If all 15 questions are answered correctly, players can look forward to 10 Orbs and 5,000 Hero Feathers! Prizes can be obtained in-game from 7th April 2017. Right now, the quiz is for Japan-only, but chances are everyone will get the prizes. Hopefully.
You can never have enough Orbs in Fire Emblem Heroes and Nintendo knows this as they’re adding even more ways for players to earn free Orbs!
Whether you’re a new player or one who’s been playing for ages, you’re sure to benefit from the new Starter Support campaign, which lasts from now until 3rd April 2017 (at 7:59 AM UTC).
Firstly, replacing the previous App-release Log-in Bonus is a Special Log-in Bonus, which grants 2 Orbs per day like previously. By our calculations, you can pick up this Log-in Bonus up to 17 times for 34 Orbs!
Secondly, there will be two Starter Support bonus maps added to the Special Maps section–one today and another from the 20th (in three days time). These maps award 3 Orbs each and have two difficulties, so you can get 12 Orbs at most.
Earlier, Fire Emblem Echoes information from the 30th March 2017 issue of Famitsu started leaking. Now that the issue is officially in the wild, it’s time for us to bring out the magnifying glass once again! (Whoa, twice in one day.)
Note: A big thanks to Famigeki for the Famitsu images.
As we mentioned in our report of the Japanese official website, some of the information is the same between Famitsu and the official website. Which isn’t a surprise since some people don’t read one or the other. As such, we’ll only cover what’s new.
The most notable addition, briefly detailed on the 2nd page, is Mila’s Gear, a valuable contraption that can peer into the past and the future. With Mila’s Gear in your possession, you can rewind the actions of units one unit at a time.
In the example, Mae got KO’d by a Mercenary on Turn 1. From the looks of things, you can rewind back to before the Mercenary attacked and try again. However, the author mentions that there are limits and it can’t be easily abused.
