Heroes: Weekly Special Map with Orbs Incoming

Fire Emblem Heroes has been out for 3 full days now and the launch celebrations just keep coming!

Today, the official Japanese Twitter account has revealed that a new batch of special maps–the “Launch Celebration Present Maps”–will be arriving tomorrow (6th February, 7 AM UTC).

Note: This is a translation and the actual name of the maps may differ in the English version.

What makes these maps special is that each map awards 3 Orbs upon completion. In addition there are two difficulty levels, allowing for a total of 6 Orbs per unique map.

These maps will be released one at a time for 5 weeks. Which if you do the Maths, allows for a possible of 30 Orbs if you complete all 5 maps on both difficulties.

Update: A notification has been added in-game, which provides a concrete schedule.

    Oh thank goodness.

    Free stuff is always good.

    Good to see that they’re not gonna be total dicks about the in-game resources.

    Be nice if there were more/better ways to get freaking feathers, though. And some way to upgrade your stamina- it’s absolutely prohibitive at higher levels.

    • If you have a My Nintendo Account linked, you get 100 Platinum Coins after every chapter cleared, and you can buy either a Dueling Crest or a Stamina Potion for 100 PCs. That should in theory do something for you.

        Fuck. Wish I knew that earlier.

        I did link for the voting period on my computer, but for some reason I’m having trouble linking my account on my phone.

        • If you’re able to get your account linked, I think you should be able to go get the Coins even if you completed the Chapters first, but I’m not sure. Also, I don’t know if you heard, but you also get 10 Orbs free if your account is linked.

            Can confirm you can get them after.

          • I can’t confirm, but it does say the requirements for each of those Missions is simply that the Chapter say it’s completed, so if you link after completing it would make sense for it to count. On the other hand, it IS Nintendo we’re talking about, so they may have not thought of that. If there’s anyone left who didn’t link before playing who’d be willing to check, that’d be great.

      We’ll know soon whether or not feathers are easier to get. Right now we’re all in the lowest arena tier, 7th platoon. After they’re done tabulating tomorrow some of us will have moved up to a higher tier where the rewards would likely be higher.
