Heroes: Brave Heroes Summoning Focus & CYL Gauntlet + Quick Hero Battles!

Today is a very exciting day in Fire Emblem Heroes! Four new events all start today for Heroes players to enjoy. First up is the long-awaited Brave Heroes Summoning Focus! Try your best to summon 5★ Brave variants of the four most-popular heroes: Roy, Lucina, Lyn, and Ike. Our earlier article provides a breakdown of their special abilities.

For the first time ever, all players can also pick one of these four heroes completely for free! You can also earn more Orbs to summon more heroes in the Brave Heroes Paralogue. Complete all three maps on all difficulties, plus the Lunatic map Quests, and earn up to 12 Orbs for more summoning.

Additionally, the Choose Your Heroes Voting Gauntlet also begins today! Check out our earlier post for the first bracket, or visit the official site here for live updates.. Pick your favourite hero among these eight popular units and help lead them to victory! The first round will end on 2 September at 3:59am UTC.

As usual, you can complete a series of quests to earn additional Battle Flags to help your army. The quests are all the same as in the last gauntlet, which means the Orb and Dueling Crest rewards have also returned!  The quests update with each round.

As part of the event, the CYL Heroes Celebration Log-In Bonus is also available! You can earn 2 Orbs each day, for up to a total of 20 Orbs, by logging in daily from now through 15 September.

Finally, the Quick Hero Battle mini-game has also arrived! Click here to play on your smartphone or other mobile device. You can earn points and defeat special heroes to unlock wallpapers. All Heroes players can also earn Orbs and Hero Feathers based on the grand total number of points earned! Read on below for more details.

Located in the website’s QHB files are sprites for the Black Knight and Nephenee from Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn. It seems that these heroes may be available in-game soon, perhaps as Grand Hero Battle and Tempest Trials rewards, respectively?

The Brave Legends Summoning Focus and its associated quest will end on 15 September at 6:59am UTC. The Choose Your Legends Voting Gauntlet and its banners and quests will end on 6 September. Quick Hero Battles will be available until 8 September.

Quick Hero Battle

Quick Hero Battle is a temporary mini-game available via the official Fire Emblem Heroes website. It is meant to be played on a mobile device. Click here to access it.

The game is effectively a rock-paper-scissors match-up featuring the weapon triangle and the new Brave Heroes units. Use Roy against greens, Lucina against reds, Ike against blues, and Lyn against other colourless units. Additionally, you can use Lyn against any Flier units for a bonus.

You build up points by selecting the right unit at the right time and building combos. If you select the wrong unit, or don’t select a unit at all, the screen will shake and your combo will be broken.

The three different difficulty modes are basically just different speeds. The higher the difficulty, the less time you have to pick the right unit, but the more units you fight in total. If you score at least 1,500 points in a single round, you can unlock a special wallpaper. New wallpapers will be available every two days.

Most of the enemy units are generic units, but you’ll occasionally fight a special unit that’s actually a Heroes character. If you defeat all of the special heroes, you’ll unlock another special wallpaper! You can view the special heroes you’ve defeat via the My Page link.

The QHB game will be available until 8 September, and everyone’s points throughout the game are being tracked. Depending on the total number of points earned, all Heroes players will earn a number of Orbs and Hero Feathers!

Total Points Rewards
Over 1,500,000,000 Orbs x 10, Hero Feathers x 5,000
1,000,000,000 to 1,499,999,999 Orbs x 5, Hero Feathers x 2,000
500,000,000 to 999,999,999 Orbs x 2, Hero Feathers x 500

    Nephenee and Black Knight yesssssss!

  • Diovani Estivalet

    I got Brave Lyn as my free hero, and already got Brave Lucina. Now I am with 2 orbs… but thanks Mila we have this new free daily orbs and in September 1st we will have the September Quests for more Orbs.

  • MetalGear Lamia

    That ad tho…

  • dmurr

    Black Knight! Nephenee is definitely also a fan favorite. If they’re doing Tempest Trials though, hopefully that means another summoning banner from PoR/RD. If they one with Shinon, Mia, Illyana and/or Volke.. I’d probably lose my mind. I’d really like Elincia or Tibarn too though.

    • Sisyphe

      I hope Black Knight is a hero battle, so I can know I’ll get him. I’m waiting for Ellincia, because I like the character and because she’ll probably be unique as a new sword flier or a staff flier, which will help my currently ill-fated Flier Emblem team. I think they’ll eventually add laguz as colorless units, since that’s a weak pool currently (at least they’d be smart to do so).

      • dmurr

        A flyer healer would be interesting! I wouldn’t mind that. I expect Laguz units to be a new category altogether if/when they add them, like Dragons but doing physical damage instead of magic. Probably introduce Laguzslayer or specific weapons too at the same time.

        • Sisyphe

          Yeah, the other option is to go the dragon route and give them colors, but they wouldn’t be able to do it by tribe, since the numbers of each probably aren’t balanced. Probably more likely that you’re right, but I kind of hope I am

      • Pinco Pallino

        and i hope they add some particular mechanic to laguz… i wonder if a transformation guage is possible in this game.

  • CombatMagi

    I had 100 orbs to spend I chose Lyn as my free to avoid colorless hell and the only other one I really wanted was Ike, would have minded the other two, but I could have lived with just Lyn and Ike. I of course got barely any green orbs and currently have Lyn, Lucina, and Roy >.> hope the free orbs will be enough to get Ike been super sick and out of work for a couple months so my cash reserves are strapped. But hey Black Knight and Nephenee would like Jill, Illyana, Volke, or Astrid as well but wouldn’t say no to any other PoR characters, which I’m assuming they will be given that that’s PoR armor for the both of them.

    • Kneekicker

      It’s always an ambivalent feeling when you pull in the hopes of a specific 5 star only to get another 5 star instead.

      Pulling Lucina and Roy in the same session should’ve been cause for celebration, yet I’m somewhat sad that I wasn’t able to get Ike.

  • Zog58

    Just want to note to people, it looks like Nephenee will come with a Slayer Lance, which rounds out the full set!

  • Major RIP me – blew over 100 Orbs on Hero Fest so I could end with…Kagero. Now here’s this Banner and me with almost no Orbs…
