Heroes: Battle of the Beach Voting Gauntlet + August Quests!

The Battle of the Beach Voting Gauntlet begins today in Fire Emblem Heroes! All eight of the swimsuit characters from both summer banners are duking it out for fame and glory. Who will you be supporting? Check out the bracket in our earlier article, or head over to the Heroes official website for live updates every hour.

Since the Gauntlet is based on existing banners, there are no special summoning banners this time around. The Ylissean Summer banner just closed after a month-long run, though the Nohrian Summer banner is still going strong.

As usual, you can also complete a series of quests to earn additional Battle Flags to support your chosen hero. Once again, they’ve been updated, and now also reward Orbs and Dueling Crests for defeating enemies within the Gauntlet! Check out below for full quest details.

The first round of the Gauntlet will end in less than two days on 3 August at 3:59am UTC. The entire Gauntlet will come to a close next Tuesday and the winner will be announced at that point. May the best swimsuit win!

Additionally, August Quests are now live! Earn yourself a bunch of Orbs, Feathers, Shards, Crystals, and Stamina Potions by completing a bunch of tasks over the course of the next month. The quests are all similar to previous months’, but we’ve outlined the full list for you below.

    State your bets, which summer waifu is gonna win?

    • O.H. X-1990

      Female Corrin, that’s a no brainer.

      • CaT

        Unless Titki beats her, which is a possibility… T&A factor FTW, unfortunately.

        • O.H. X-1990

          I disagree, kid.

        • O.H. X-1990

          Tough luck, kid, Tiki lost.

          • CaT

            Oh, I was on Corrin’s team (still am, as she won, so duh) but I was pointing out the fact that T&A could tip the balance. Glad the players aren’t THAT bone(r)headed… oh wait… all the high-rated/popular characters are/were bikini babes… I guess the balance was tipped to all sides (ok, just Tiki, Robin, and Corrin, but not really the point, I think I’m just picking at nits now, trying to make this as long as possible [remind you of anything with all that almost bare T&A? (insert lenny face here)], so I’m going to shut up now…)

  • O.H. X-1990

    Um, Kirie, you might need to fix the August Quests awards parts 2 and 3, because that doesn’t look right.

    • Kirie

      Yeah, I actually just got back from fixing Part 3; I was going on auto-pilot. 😛 What’s wrong with Part 2 though? Unless I’m missing something silly, they’re all the same to me.

      • Sisyphe

        Hmm could be that they still have a “July” heading, but that’s not a significant issue

        • Kirie

          Haha, thanks for the correction. 🙂 I was so busy scanning the tables trying to find the problem that I forgot to look at the headings!

  • Laggalot101

    Rewards galore.

  • MetalGear Lamia

    Female Corrin wins the end

  • O.H. X-1990

    Finally, more Light’s Blessings! It’s about time this game brought those back!
