Heroes: Next Tempest Trials Coming Soon + Healer Gauntlet Results!

The second Tempest Trials in Fire Emblem Heroes begins this Friday! Entitled Tempest Trials: Resonating Fangs, this next installment focuses on characters from Fire Emblem Echoes. In fact, a new banner featuring 5★ heroes for Alm, Mae, Boey, and Faye is already available!

Those four heroes are the 40% bonus allies for the upcoming event. Three more Echoes characters—Clair, Tobin, and Lukas— are 20% bonus allies, as is Sharena. Like Masked Marth in the original Tempest Trials, Tobin is available as a prize within the event. You earn his 5★ at the 30k point mark. We don’t know yet any of the other new prizes, if any.

As mentioned in the Version 1.5 notes, Tempest Trials mechanics are updating slightly. Players will now receive more points from playing Normal and Hard maps, and enemy status will remain the same between teams.

Tempest Trials: Resonating Fangs begins this Friday, 7 July, at 7:00am UTC. Like the previous event, it will run for two weeks, ending on 21 July.

Additionally, the War of the Clerics Voting Gauntlet has now come to a close. After a long battle, Elise from Fire Emblem Fates finally takes her spot at the top. Don’t forget to claim your final rewards!

    Yes, I knew Elise will win! Way to go, Nohrian Princess!

    As for the next Tempest Gauntlet, I see that the characters from Fire Emblem Echoes are next. But wait! …What, no Celica?! That’s lame! We get to see Alm, but not Celica?! Weaksauce!

    • Kirie

      I was also really disappointed that Celica wasn’t featured. I was so excited to pull her and she’s one of my best heroes!

      • TheBraveGallade

        yeah wtf my celica is lv39… and the only other one I have is clair. and a 4* lucas.

        • Sisyphe

          Yeah, I have only an untouched 4* Clair, and grinding my way up wasn’t exactly a fun time when I had the bonus units. Still, as unpleasant as they are, I still kind of feel the rewards make it worth it

          • TheBraveGallade

            lol I just summoned 1 red unit from the alm banner and got alm. he’s lv 30 now.

  • O.H. X-1990

    Oh GREAT, now I have a dilemma! Which will I summon, Alm or any of the Ylissean Summer Heroes?! God, I hate it when that happens!

  • O.H. X-1990

    Well, I better save my stamina potions for this next Tempest Trials.

  • Diovani Estivalet

    I can see from his pose that Tobin is a Sword user.

    • Laggalot101

      You noticed from the pose, and not the little red sword icon?

      • Diovani Estivalet

        Yes… it because the image with the red sword icon somehow did not appear to me. After I posted, the image appeared.

        • Sisyphe

          So we have an archer Faye but not an archer Tobin? Alright then. I kind of doubt he’ll stand out among the g ‘ll ut of sword users in the game. I’m a little disappointed (and it’s not like Tobin would’ve been my pick for the next Echoes character)

          • Diovani Estivalet

            Yeah… I am little disappoited too. In my opinion, the special unit for this Tempest Trial should had be Conrad, instead of Tobin. Oh well… at least I hope that Tobin have some special or passive skills, different from Masked Lucina who only had her sword.

          • Sisyphe

            Ooh Conrad would have been perfect! Maybe Clive if they must, or Valbar if they want to inject a little unit diversity. But definitely Conrad

          • TheBraveGallade

            lets hope for a tempest trial themed with celica in the latter half of this month.if it happens that will DEFINETLY have conrad

  • TheBraveGallade

    oh great I only have celica and clair.

  • Laggalot101

    Welp, I only have Clair and Sharena for the 20% bonus and nobody for the 40%. I didn’t summon on the summer banner, so I’ll give this SoV banner a shot, see if anything turns up. I don’t have a great track record for Focus units, though.

    • TheBraveGallade

      I was in the same boat… untill this morning.
      I suddenly had like, 38 orbs. so even though I wasn’t interested, I decided to summon 1 red orb.
      turns out it was 5* alm. which will go well with my 5* lv 39 celica. he is currently lv 30.

    Hmm what did you guys think about the new gauntlet system? It was more … on edge and all, but it felt kind of unfair, or like it always has to be a tie now no matter what. Which kinda took out the fun for me. Everyone was always tying, and aside from that, Sakura and Elise had a way larger score than the other match-ups in the first round, but still tied with the others going forth. I don’t know if the score multiplier works when it’s “Same” but it’s still a bit boring this way to me. I would’ve liked to see how this one turned out for real since there wasn’t an obvious winner here.

    ;; Wow this made me realize I don’t have even one Echoes character.

    • Stranger

      People were getting sick of the landslide victories from the previous gauntlets, and IS hasn’t yet seemed to clue in on the fact that as long as someone from Fates/Awakening is included- they are going to win.

      Ike, Hector, and Lyn are the only ones who stand a snowball’s chance in hell to ever win against the newer generations.

      • woof

        I understand, but it is called a “VOTING Gaunlet”, so, isn’t it only logical if the more popular one is the victor? The way it is now may as well be luck-based it seems. It’s really easy to win the gauntlet battles, so it’s not as though they can measure it according to wins/losses like Splatoon did.

        • Stranger

          Given that Tharja and Elise still won, pretty sure it still reflects the most popular character.

          Although there is a hidden layer of strategy of saving your flags to make the most of the losing bonus.

          • woof

            Yeah, but Elise and Sakura had more than double the scores of all the other matchups at the beginning, so the fact it was a close tie and that Elise was losing half the time in the final round, shows how flawed the system is in my opinion.

        • Stranger

          Although, really- IS just needs to choose better characters and matchups- instead of pitting Usain Bolt against 90 year-old war veterans with missing legs and pretending Sgt. Limpy Stubbs has a chance.

          • woof

            I can agree with that, I’d rather have it that way as well. So I can just pick who I like, instead of having to factor in, “but if this character I like wins, then everyone’s going to whine that ‘SHE WON BC BOOBS'”

  • O.H. X-1990

    Okay, hold up. Tobin, out of all the characters from Fire Emblem Echoes, they picked Tobin? He’s not even THAT powerful! Masked Knight/Conrad is all powerful! It’s bad enough that Celica wasn’t featured, but they should’ve picked Conrad as a powerful hero reward, so why Tobin of all characters from Echoes?!

    • TheBraveGallade

      lets hope the NEXT trials include celica. THEN get conrad.

  • MetalGear Lamia

    Glad Elise won love that Awakening/Fates are continuing this awesome streak! 🙂

  • Diovani Estivalet

    I got a 4 stars Boey from this banner… Oh well…
