Heroes: More Archaneans Arrive with Ascended Fjorm!

The trailer for the next batch of New Heroes is here–and there’s a twist. “New Heroes & Ascended Fjorm”, which runs from 18th October 2021 (UTC) will feature characters from Mystery of the Emblem alongside the new Fjorm from the “Ice & Flame 4” Tempest Trials+ event.

Note: You can check out the Japanese version of this trailer here.

The featured Heroes in the banner are: Wolf, Malice, Roshea and Ascended Fjorm. Wolf and Roshea are members of the Wolfguard, an elite squadron created by followers of Hardin. Meanwhile, Malice is a mercenary who debuted in BS Fire Emblem and returned in New Mystery of the Emblem.

As for Fjorm, she’s the first Ascended Hero–a new type of Hero that comes with a new mechanic. Ascended Heroes can be given an Ascended Asset, which is a second Asset, in addition to their default Asset/Flaw. This is effectively a free +3 or +4 to a secondary stat.

Non-Ascended Heroes can also be given an Ascended Asset by using an Ascended Floret item. One Floret will be awarded the first time a unique Ascended Hero is summoned (but no more). Also, one Floret will be awarded the first time you access the “Ascend Traits” menu (so all players will get 1 and lucky players can get 2).

By the way, if you need to change a Hero’s Ascended Asset after the fact, you can do so by using a Trait Fruit. Furthermore, Ascended Assets have no impact of Arena scoring etc.

Besides that, the remaining two members of the Wolfguard will also be available. Sedgar: Coyote’s Dutiful will appear in an upcoming Grand Hero Battle, while Vyland: Coyote’s Justice will be obtainable from special Quests, before being added to the summoning pool from the next Special Heroes banner.

Heroes: Resplendent Kagero & October/November Calendar!

October’s second Resplendent Hero will be Kagero: Honorable Ninja.

This version of the Hoshidan retainer is wearing attire from Dökkálfheimr, the realm of nightmares. She’ll be available from 25th October 2021 (UTC). You can check her full artwork (by Kakage) and voice samples via the Feh Pass website.

Also, the event calendar for mid October to mid November is finally here. Key dates include 18th October when the next bunch of New Heroes arrive, 29th October when another Legendary Hero descends and 5th November, when more Special Heroes make their entrance.

Last year’s Special Heroes were ninja-themed; considering the pirates came back this year, there’s a decent chance the ninjas will also return. Ninja Sakura for my birthday would be cool, but nah.

As usual, the text version of the calendar is after the break.

Heroes: More Dragons Celebrate the Harvest Season in “Shared Bounty”

Earlier, the marketing team for FE Heroes made a boo-boo by revealing this year’s spooky Heroes in a Twitter ad for Mythic Ótr. Anyway, just like last year’s Halloween banner, the Heroes are all related to dragons in some form.

Note: You can check out the Japanese version of this trailer here.

“Shared Harvest” will run from 7th October through 7th November 2021 (UTC). The featured Heroes are male Robin, Rhea, Kurthnaga and Duo Sothis (with male Byleth).

Sophia will be the Tempest Trials reward (Blue Tome Flier), along with the Odd Def Wave 1 and Shield Session 1 Sacred Seals.

Heroes: Details for Version 5.10.0, Arriving 5~6th October

We have another monthly update for Fire Emblem Heroes coming soon. Version 5.10.0 is scheduled for release on 5th or 6th October 2021, depending on your timezone.

Of note, there are various improvements to the Heroes Journey mode, whose second event recently ended.

Heroes Journey

A new “Available Memento Events” button will be added. It’ll allow players to choose and view any Memento Event by consuming a new item called Memory Fragments, but only up to 3 times.

Memory Fragments can be obtained after getting a repeat Memento Event when spending Memento Points. The number of fragments given will be the same as the Rapport of the repeat event (so 4 fragments for a 4 Rapport event).

20 Memory Fragments are required to choose a Memento Event. Up to 60 fragments can be earned per Heroes Journey event. When the event ends, all unspent fragments will disappear.

When choosing a Memento Event using fragments, it’s possible to select from all types and Rapport. You may even choose Memento Events from previous seasons. Events unlocked using fragments will be recorded in the Memento Logs like usual.

Additionally, when the Heroes Journey event is not active, you can review your Memento Logs and successful pairs.

Furthermore, new Memento Events will be added. From the screenshot shown (further up), they will be from “Archive of the East.”

Finally, there will be a Home Screen notification for Heroes Journey when it’s on-going (which you can disable). Plus the “Memento Event” button will be easier to recognise.
