Heroes: Mage Gauntlet Results, Echoes Bonus, and Lloyd GHB Teaser!

The Mage Gauntlet in Fire Emblem Heroes has officially ended! Robin put up a good fight, but, as expected, Tharja emerged as the final victor.

The final tally of all votes was a whopping 131,700,378,446! We utterly smashed the 10 billion vote goal, which means all players can look forward to the following rewards: 20 Orbs, 5 of each Great Badge, and 5,000 Universal Crystals. These gifts will be rewarded in the near future.

Additionally, Heroes is offering a Celebration Bonus for the upcoming release of Fire Emblem Echoes! All players will get a special one-time Log-In Bonus of 5 Orbs. You can pick up these free Orbs starting today, and they’ll be available until 2 June.

Lastly, @FE_Heroes_JP has posted up a teaser image for the next Grand Hero Battle featuring Lloyd from Blazing Sword! The battle will open up tomorrow, Friday May 19th, at 8:00 UTC. As usual, a new focus banner to aid you in the battle will start at the same time.

    None of Tharja’s victories were landslides like anyone would’ve thought. Especially with the final round against Robin when Robin was in the lead for the first day.

    • O.H. X-1990

      True, but in the end, it was inevitable, of course Tharja wins, since she’s obviously more popular.

  • Laggalot

    Almost gotta wonder why they’re even still setting that 10-billion vote goal. It gets destroyed every single time, and this time even more so thanks to the introduction of the comeback mechanic, which can triple score gains.

    And GHB, looking at it, it doesn’t look too hard, and I am already formulating a strategy for it. Some obvious things I’m picking up, the bow cav reaches the farthest, so you can bait and dispose of him on enemy phase easily without getting the bait unit teamed up on by the rest of the enemy units. Bring a unit with a Raven or Wolf tome, and/or the Bowbreaker skill, and that cavalier should be easy to remove. Heck, a green tome with Raven + Triangle Adept can be positioned right above the mountain nearest to the player’s starting position, and destroy both the bow cav and the blue mage in one turn. Caeda or Palla can also easily and safely bait out the axe flier in the top left. If you have either of them, they’re probably worth bringing (and training if you haven’t done so already.)

    If you have a good green tome-wielder, they can probably also easily destroy the lance cavalier next turn. And then Lloyd remains. Anyone (but preferably blues) with Swordbreaker should do, I think.

  • MetalGear Lamia

    Another pointless predictable gauntlet……when a actual good character win it’ll be the day!

    • Laggalot

      To be fair, the final round was pretty close. The comeback mechanic tripling score gain helped, of course, but it only kicked in like two or three times throughout the entire final round. This was easily the most even gauntlet we’ve had so far. Robin was actually in the lead in a few instances, too.

      • But at the same time, if we have to rely on a crutch like the x3 point system then I don’t really call it a real victory (if Robin won). Because in retrospect he would have gotten less votes, its just that the system literally helped him win while the majority of the time Tharja’s votes were from normal x1 votes. They REALLY need to rethink who they set up against each other because having to rely on the comeback mechanic to win is kind of…..eh.

    • BladeLord Lyn

      Very true at least their getting rid of the glorified ones plus doing better balance with this and will hopefully get actually good characters if Lyn, Ike, Alm, Celica, Roy get in at least it’ll be better!

    • Joseph Smith

      None of your pwecious FE4 or FE5 characters are ever going to win. Cry more Jugdral fanboy.

      • MetalGear Lamia

        Loser idiot……..

      • BladeLord Lyn

        Wow your so stupid words can’t comprehend example of cancer…..

        • MetalGear Lamia

          Just block that idiot not worth the text….

      • Kazuya

        Grow up, you don’t have to be an ass.

      • Noktis Zariah

        Calling people fanboys because they like something you don’t, the picture of maturity you are.

        Do us all a favor and go get neutered, don’t pollute the gene pool.

    • Ember Hermin

      Tharja’s a GREAT character. Not a good PERSON, but she was well-rounded. Still, I think it’s stupid that they keep using characters from the top of the list in these gauntlets.

    • Noktis Zariah

      Tits and Ass beat out character once again. Tharja and Camilla should join a club.

      The “We’re only this popular because otakus beat their meat to us” club.

  • Soooo, its pass and threaten ATK for Llyod? Artwork asides (because there’s already a huge discussion about how they should have gotten a different artist for him….which I agree. Freaking crack-head), his skills needs to be reworked.

    • UNIverse

      Threaten ATK is pretty okay honestly, but yeah Pass is a joke

  • JamesBond007

    After Lloyd, who will be next? Currently, there are only three characters left – Camus, Bruno and Veronica.

    • Laggalot

      Since Bruno and Veronica are important characters in the story, I don’t think they’ll ever have actual Grand Hero Battles. So yeah, either Camus, or they’ll announce a new line-up of GHB’s.

      • JamesBond007

        Maybe not in the near future, but I think they will eventually be playable. Their sound effects hinting this possibillity are already present in the game’s code.

        After Lloyd, I think Camus will be next, but I’m also expecting another chance for Narcian and Michalis.

        • Laggalot

          Oh, I do not doubt they’ll eventually become playable units, I’m sure of it. But I don’t think they’ll become available through a Grand Hero Battle, unless they turn a story chapter into a GHB. I’m convinced these characters will be unlocked specifically through story progress.

          And according to dataminers, Narcian’s gonna make a return next, so get ready for that.

    • Kazuya

      Pretty sure it’s either Camus BUT they are doing to reruns. We’ll be getting Narcian in again sooner or later.

    • O.H. X-1990

      Camus? Probably. But Bruno and Veronica? Nope, Nintendo is saving those two for the Endgame Chapter, guaranteed.

  • Paulo Cesar

    Well in the last screenshot to the Ursula great battle Kagero was on and she were a unit in the banner so either Hawkeye or Florina or boths are a helper unit. it make sense not saying will be.

  • Kazuya

    Sad that disgusting thing won. But the 5 orbs everyday is nice.

    • Laggalot

      It’s not every day, it’s one-time.

      • Kazuya

        It isn’t? I read it was through 5/18 – 6/11

        • Kazuya

          Just logged in again, it is a one time. Thanks for telling me.

    • O.H. X-1990

      Pfft, you’re just mad and salty because Tharja is obviously more popular in this Voting Gauntlet, kid.

      • Laggalot

        Says the guy who throws a fit in the comment section of almost every Heroes-related news item here…

        • O.H. X-1990

          This coming from a noob who always ends up getting weak heroes, like that old coot Wrys.

          • Laggalot

            I thought that was you. I remember you complaining how you could never get the good heroes. Several times over.

          • O.H. X-1990

            You thought wrong, Wrys lover. Now I have more better heroes than you can possibly imagine, kid.

          • Fallen Crow

            Can’t we learn to love one another? :’) Mom… Dad… you are breaking this family apart :'(

          • O.H. X-1990

            Shut up, Fallen Crow, mommy and daddy are talking, and Laggalot is the mommy. LMAO What a noob.

          • Fallen Crow

            1v1 me on fates heroes betty

          • O.H. X-1990

            Joke’s on you, I don’t own Fire Emblem Fates, and you can never find me in Fire Emblem Heroes. So that means I win, childish troll. Better luck next time, if there’s going to be a next time. Ha ha ha.

          • Fallen Crow

            What is your friend code…. i need more friends lol

          • O.H. X-1990

            It’s the “Go find your own friends, childish troll” code. Ha ha, get rekt.

          • Laggalot

            I’d love to, but sometimes I need to express my annoyance at the endless negativity coming from some people.

      • Kazuya

        Not at all, it just sucks to see fans want a slut more than an actual character.

        • O.H. X-1990

          That sounds like you being mad and salty to me, when will you ever learn that the most popular character, like Tharja, always wins? Still, I gotta admit, Male Robin came closer than any character ever has, even with his 3 times bonus.

          • Kazuya

            I honestly lost all hope for a change and I no longer care. I obviously was voting for Robin

          • O.H. X-1990

            And look what happened? In the end, Tharja has triumphed, she beat Robin fair and square, and I voted for Tharja, of course. Tsk tsk tsk, you should’ve stayed on the winning team, kid. Better luck next time, if there will be a next time.

          • Kazuya

            I was never a big fan of Tharja, so I just went for Merric.

          • O.H. X-1990

            Too bad Merric lost in the first round, that’s what you get for being in a losing team. Ha, what a noob you are.

          • Kazuya

            Not at all, I have a personal attachment to him

          • O.H. X-1990

            Ha, gayyyyyy! That’s also why you lose so easily. Popularity always wins, just like Tharja, loser. Ha!

          • Kazuya

            Not at all, he was the only mage I used in 11 and he did the best damn job at killing Gharnef.

          • O.H. X-1990

            Wow, is “not at all” your catchphrase? Talk about “lame” and “retarded”. Also, I don’t believe you even own Fire Emblem 11, because there’s no such thing. Your precious Merric deserves to lose, so give up, sore loser, move on. Are you triggered yet, crybaby troll? You must be.

  • O.H. X-1990

    Lloyd, huh? Well, guess we’ll have to see how hard he is when we’ll play (and suffer) on Lunatic mode.
