That’s right! Fire Emblem Heroes recently brought up this event in their most recent Feh Channel stream, but it’s finally live. Just what is the “A Hero Rises” event? It’s a simple voting event, much like the Choose Your Legends rounds we’ve seen before, only the available roster includes only those heroes that Summoners can actually recruit. The prize? A free 5 star hero, sent straight to your barracks! Go vote by clicking Here.
This means that if you can earn them as a reward through a Grand Hero Battle, or simply summon them, they’re ripe for the picking. This of course also means that you cannot vote for Alfonse, Sharena, Anna, Veronica, Bruno, Surtr, Laevatein, or Loki.
There will be two rounds: Round 1 will will determine the top four Heroes, who will then become eligible for the second (final) round of voting. You can submit your choice once per day in both the first round and final round. Round 1 is up now, and will be active until February 12 at 7pm. Round 2 will begin on February 15 at 7pm, and will run until 7pm February 19 (all times are PT).
After voting, you’ll be able to download a special mobile-friendly wallpaper of the hero(es) that you vote for, so if you’re interested in some variety for your phone, be sure to download what you can, and perhaps consider sharing for those that want a wallpaper but are voting for other heroes.
The winning Hero will be made available in-game to everyone who clears the story map Xenologue 3: The People’s Hero. This map will be distributed in-game in late February.
Heroes that can be used within a player’s team as of 1/29/2018 are part of this event.
Good luck, Summoners!
