Heroes: Tempest Trials: Genealogy of Light is Now Live!

The latest Tempest Trials have just begun in Fire Emblem Heroes! Tempest Trials: Genealogy of Light starts today.

Seliph witnesses some strange occurrences. Soon, Masked Marth approaches him and introduces him to some familiar faces who may be able to help with the situation…

You can access the Tempest Trials in the upper left side of the Battle screen. The opening page shows you the available Bonus Allies and your current points, as well as containing links to view available rewards. Once you’re ready, hit the Select Stage button to begin, and work your way towards a new final map…

The rewards for this event follow similar patterns to old Trials. You can unlock 4★ and 5★ versions of the new hero, Arden, at 6,000 and 30,000 points respectively. There are also three new Sacred Seals available: Brash Assault 1 at 12,000, Atk Smoke 1 at 20,000, and Guidance 1 at 40,000. All Seals can be upgraded at the new Sacred Forge.

Other rewards include Orbs, Hero Feathers, Crystals, and now Sacred Coins.

As a celebration for the event, Heroes has also begun a new Log-In Bonus! You can earn up to 13 Orbs throughout the duration of the Trials. As usual, there are also daily quests that reward you for completing Trials maps each day. Starting halfway through the event, you will be able to earn double rewards from these quests! You can see the full list below.

Tempest Trials: Genealogy of Light will last for about two weeks, ending on 6 November at 6:59am UTC. The associated quests and banner will also end at that time.

    Maybe I can still get and Ayra with these orbs…nope, just another +res Eldigan…fml.
    But these seem to be good seals to get though, hello power creep my old friend. Also, I think a lot of people are over stating just how OP Arden will be, sure he’ll have amazing physical bulk and power making him a major threat to certain teams, but his Res and low mobility means he still needs major support and without it, mages will walk all over him since even with the Deflect Magic sacred seal, combined with a dancer and mages can OTK him.

      I don’t like armored units so im just gonna fodder him for his brave sword. I’ll keep his four star at least. Plus I prefer Black Knight as the red armored unit

      • CombatMagi

        Fodder the 5 star? hmmm not a bad idea, usually make a +1 with the TT person but I probably wouldn’t use him since the Black Knight is my red armored too, but who to give it to is the biggest question

  • Sisyphe

    It was clearly overstated the extent to which we would be getting sacred coins from this. 80 isn’t even enough to max out one of them (Or upgrade two). I’m pretty sure I will no longer be playing this game by the time I can upgrade a handful of them

    • Laggalot101

      I don’t remember them ever making any sort of statement or implication on the quantity of coins you could get from these events.

      • Sisyphe

        I don’t think they did, but it was speculated that they would use the trials to compensate a little for needing so many coins to upgrade the seals. I didn’t want that anyway, since orbs are still the most valuable resource to me, but I think people are still wondering what the point of the seal forge is if they aren’t tying it to money somehow and it risks cutting into the other stuff we get (maybe fewer feathers or something)

        The initial comment wasn’t very clear, so I’ve tried to edit it a little to reflect that.

  • Diovani Estivalet

    I love how Seliph appears in the Tempest Trial story but he is not a bonus ally. It is like: “Hey, I am here but I will do nothing.”

  • O.H. X-1990

    Oh GREAT, Seliph is there but he’s not a Bonus, his father Sigurd is, which I can never summon Sigurd! And Julia is the boss for the final map. Just…why?

    • Simon-Pierre Dupuis

      She is controlled by Manfroy in Fe4’s final map. This is a recreation of that chapter.

  • Splondir

    Why does Ike have a red background on the list of team members in one of the screenshots?

    • Sisyphe

      That’s the summoner support background

  • CombatMagi

    That guidance sacred seal, put that on a horse and oof. Gotta decide between upgrading that or phantom speed for Ayra

  • Lucian Crowe

    Sigurd is a god on these tempest trials. I just got him to LV 40 in less than 5-10 minutes
