Heroes: Tempest Trials: Less Than Heroic is Now Live!

The latest Tempest Trials has now begun in Fire Emblem Heroes! Tempest Trials: Less Than Heroic is now available.

This Trial event features a few… reluctant mercenaries helping out Masked Marth.

Whenever you’re ready, head to the Tempest Trials icon to begin. The opening screen shows the available Bonus Heroes, your current point total, and links to choose your battle and view rewards. This time around, the final stage is a brand new map with Brave!Ike as the boss.

As mentioned previously, Joshua is this Trial’s character reward. You can earn a 4★ version of him at 6,000 points and a 5★ at 30,000. You can also earn a few Sacred Seals: Savage Blow 1 at 12,000, Hone Spd 1 at 20,000, and Close Def 1 at 40,000. This is, of course, in addition to the standard Orbs, Feathers, Crystals, and Sacred Coins.

Heroes has also started a few Log-In Bonus to run alongside the event! Earn up to 13 Orbs throughout the Trials. You can also complete quests every day to earn Stamina Potions, Universal Crystals, and Hero Feathers.

Tempest Trials: Less Than Heroic will run for about two weeks, ending on 5 December at 6:59am UTC. The associated quests and banner will also end at that time.

Heroes: Tempest Trials: Less Than Heroic Summoning Focus & Details!

The next Tempest Trials is almost ready to begin in Fire Emblem Heroes! The Tempest Trials: Less Than Heroic Summoning Focus starts today, and the banner looks a bit familiar…

Sure enough, the new banner is basically a rerun of the Brave Heroes banner from September. You can spend your orbs to get 5★ copies of the Brave versions of Roy, Lucina, Ike, and Lyn!

All four of these heroes will be bonus allies in the upcoming Tempest Trials. Titled “Less Than Heroic“, the event features the Brave units and also the three newest characters from the Farfetched Heroes banner: Mia, Lute, and Dorcas. Those three and Brave!Ike will all be 40% bonus allies, while the remaining Brave units and Joshua offer a 20% bonus.

Joshua is this Tempest Trial’s reward character, as revealed in the recent Feh Channel livestream. Sure enough, he also appears in the rewards image in the Trial’s announcement in the Notification Screen. No other changes to Tempest Trials are apparent at this time.

Tempest Trials: Less Than Heroic starts this Tuesday, 21 November, at 7:00am UTC. Like other full Tempest Trials, it will last around two weeks, ending on 5 December. Summon some new heroes if you need to, and prepare for another lengthy battle event. Orbs, Hero Feathers, Sacred Coins, and other rewards await you!
