Heroes: Voting Gauntlet: Winter Festival vs. New Year’s + New Year’s Event and January Quests!

Happy New Year from Fire Emblem Heroes! Heroes is ready to ring in the new year beginning with some new quests and events, including the latest Voting Gauntlet: Winter Festival vs. New Year’s.

This latest Gauntlet pits Tharja, M!Robin, Chrom, and Lissa from the Winter’s Envoy banner against Camilla, Azura, and Takumi from the current Happy New Year! banner. Since the New Years version of M!Corrin is not yet available, Ryoma takes the final slot on the New Year’s side. May the best hero win!

Each round of the Gauntlet lasts a little under two days, ending three hours before the daily reset. As usual each round also brings new quests for you to earn up Battle Flags, Orbs, and other rewards. The final round will end at 3:59am UTC on 7 January.

Additionally, Heroes also has a full New Year’s Event in store for players!

The first part of the event will be immediately noticeable when you load up the game: a new Log-In Bonus! Earn two Orbs per day for ten days just for signing in. We also get three days of Special New Year’s Maps. Beat both daily maps for three Orbs a piece, up to a total of 18 Orbs! Each map will be available for one week.

Finally, we also get New Year’s Daily Quests. The current day’s quests give out a Stamina Potion for KOing a single foe and 1 Orb for completing a single battle in Arena Assault. Quests may change daily or they may repeat, so make sure to check back. These daily quests will repeat each day until 8 January.

Speaking of quests, the January Monthly Quests are now also available! These quests follow the same pattern as previous monthly quests as expected.

With all of this excitement, don’t forget we also have a Tempest Trials going on! It’s certainly an exciting time to be a Fire Emblem Heroes player.

    Way to start things off with a bang. Lots of orbs, let’s see if I can get a NY! Azura…and no…just the usual batch of Bartre, Barst, and Cecilia. Really hope IS demotes some more heroes into the 3/4* pool so that we can get more than the same 5 heroes.

      I’m really hoping they’ll demote a bunch of heroes for the anniversary. Seems like it would be a good time to do it, and it’s not all that far away now either!

    That’s it, not getting Gunnthrá or any of the New Years Heroes is where I draw the line, I’m saving my Orbs for a whole month! If I see any unimportant Banners, I’m skipping those, after my free summoning, of course!

      Ugh! Don’t mention her. I got two Spring Chroms, which is something I guess, but I do feel cheated and Orb poor. Still, a flying singer… and I hate to think how many orbs I wasted for Performing Olivia.

    I got Camilla and Azura, and I am happy with it.
    Hahaha, my flying emblem team have only special units: Spring Camilla, Summer Corrin, New Year Camilla and New Year Azura.

      Now I have Takumi too! I think this is the first time I got all heroes from a banner during it’s period.
      I am thinking to give Takumi the Windsweep skill. He will use it well. Also, he will do a great pair with Gunnthrá.

    With New Year Azura, now we have 8 heroes with Dance/Sing. Can we have a Voting Gauntlet with all heroes with Dance and Sing abilities?
