Heroes: New Rewards for the Early Michalis Event!

The early bird Michalis Grand Hero Battle in Fire Emblem Heroes was a grand success! Despite only being natively advertised in Japanese versions of the game, there was a very large turnout. 54,666 people completed either version of the map, and 13,415 even cleared Lunatic mode!

Since we managed to smash all goal milestones, we have also earned full rewards. As such, players can look forward to receiving 10 Orbs, 10 Stamina Potions and 5,000 Hero Feathers sometime in the next few days.

If you missed the event, Michalis will be back this Friday at the usual time. If you need some help, feel free to visit our Heroes forum to discuss strategy. The accompanying Focus Banner that leaked last week will also arrive then if you could use an extra boost for your team. Good luck to all players!

    Well glad we were able to get it but am sad that I was unable to contribute because I failed to see the updated time D:

    My team (cleared Lunatic on first attempt after using Hard to scout the map), plus suggestions for non-randomly obtained substitutes:

    1. Narcian (4* Max Level) baited and ORKO’d the lace pegasus, also killed the lace soldier on the left. 3* version can probably handle this since he shouldn’t need all 3 ranks of Lancebreaker to do his job. In my strategy, Narcian’s role as a flying green who can ORKO the lance pegasus — without baiting anything else in the process — was not replaceable by other free units, so hopefully you have him or a good substitute (you could consider baiting Michalis instead, if you have a red flier).

    2. Takumi (5* Max Level) killed the other pegasus, though any decently leveled archer should work fine (Virion is available for free, and I believe Gordin will be featured in the upcoming Focus if you dismissed or transferred the former).

    3. Tharja (5* Max Level) easily ORKO’d Michalis. Sadly, the free, neutral-natured Raigh and Sophia won’t be fast enough to double Michalis without skill transfers (need at least 32 speed), so field a refresher — Ninian, or Azura, or the free Olivia — to help either of those two, field a different, faster mage, or use another strategy. Remember that Michalis isn’t weak to bows thanks to Iote’s Shield.

    4. Marth (5* Max Level) handled the sword cavalier on the left and was basically filler for my team. If you don’t have a reliable way to ORKO Michalis, this spot could be used for Olivia, who is available today (March 20) in the Special Maps, or another refresher. If you field Raigh in slot 3, he should able to deal with the sword cavalier with Olivia’s help, assuming Rauðrwolf doesn’t OHKO.

      3 star Narcian under Lv 32 can also do this work perfectly.
