Fire Emblem Heroes 1st Anniversary is Here!

The Fire Emblem Heroes 1st Anniversary has arrived! Happy anniversary, Heroes!

Heroes has quite a lot in store for players as part of its anniversary celebration. Two parts of it will be immediately available as soon as you log-in: a one-time Anniversary Present of 50 Orbs and an Anniversary Log-In Bonus! The log-in bonus gives you an additional 2 Orbs each day for a total of 20 Orbs.

The third event gives you a place to potentially spend those Orbs, a new Hero Fest banner! This banner contains 5★ focus units for Sigurd, Nephenee, Brave Ike, and Brave Lyn. Even better, they have a 5% chance to appear!

The final two events are both a bit more long-lasting. The Double EXP & SP event lasts for one week, giving all of your heroes twice as much EXP and SP in battle! It will end on 9 February. We also get Daily Special Maps for 25 days! Each map rewards one Orb for both difficulties for a total of 50 Orbs. You have one week to play each map.

You may remember when you first began playing Heroes that there was a “Shards & Crystals” quest that rewarded players for completing various story chapters. Those quests were valid for one year, so they have now ended. Instead of being simply renewed or removed, these quests have been replaced with another yearly quest: Tutorial Quests.

Just like the original, these new Tutorial Quests reward you for completely various story chapters. You can also earn prizes for competing in the Arena and the Training Tower. The rewards have been updated to include additional prizes, such as new Sacred Seals, Stamina Potions, Badges, and even a couple Orbs! Check out the full list below.

    Hero Fest? I will skip it. And about the 50 Orbs, I used some of them to try to get Myrrh… and I got her! I got a +RES -SPD Myrrh, and that’s really good.

    • Daniel Smith

      Congrats mate!

    • Mattrex

      Holy crap that’s exactly the same Myrrh I pulled today. Congrats to us both lol.

      • Diovani Estivalet

        Yay! Myrrh for the win!

    • mrkisukes

      I actually got a +ATK/-HP B!Ike in only a few pulls then spent orbs and got Sanaki (+SPD/-DEF) and Siegbert (+ATK/-RES), I already have a Myrrh though (+DEF/-HP) so I’m pleased with my recent pulls and I’m now saving for the next banner that interests me.
