Heroes: Forging Bonds Details Revealed!

A new event type will soon be starting in Fire Emblem Heroes! Today, the Notification Screen shared some Forging Bonds Details to give people additional information about the new game mode.

The first Forging Bonds event starts this Monday, 23 July, at 7:00am UTC. This version of the event features the new characters available in the current Ylissean Travelers Banner. The main focus of the event is unlock special conversations with each of these characters.

Further rewards include Orbs, Hero Feathers, Divine Dew, Accessories, and more. Additionally, we’ll be getting a bonus gift of 20 Orbs when the event begins! Scroll on down for some further details.

Forging Bonds Gameplay

As shown in the recent Feh Channel, Forging Bonds will still contain battles between your heroes and some enemies. When you defeat an enemy, they will sometimes drop a special chest that holds Friendship.

Friendship is the main currency of Forging Bonds and is used to unlock most of the event’s rewards. You’ll be able to choose between Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced levels, with harder difficulties offering more Friendship. Regardless of which difficulty you choose to fight, enemies will scale to your team’s level.

Each Event Character will have their own Friendship currency (denoted by heart colour) for you to earn. At different times during the event, the amount of Friendship earned will be boosted, and there are other times when it will be easier to earn Friendship for a certain hero.

The amount and type of Friendship earned will update every six hours, so it’s good to check back frequently if you can, especially if there’s a particular hero’s conversations and rewards that you still want to complete.

Additionally, equipping Bonus Accessories on the team you’re using to fight will boost Friendship earned by 25%! Unlike Bonus Allies in TT or similar, Bonus Accessories do stack, so equip everyone on your team for the best results!

Forging Bonds Rewards

Earn Friendship for each of the four Event Characters to unlock rewards. Forging Bonds rewards work like TT scoring, with each reward unlocked as you gain more Friendship for that particular hero. Here’s an example screenshot of the bottom of Olivia’s Reward page:

At 10 Friendship, you unlock Olivia’s C Conversation, followed by 50 Scarlet Badges at 25 and 200 Hero Feathers at 50. At different points, we’ll also be able to earn other rewards, including Orbs, Divine Dew, and Accessories. We don’t yet know how high the Rewards tiers will be or what all prizes will be contained.

In addition to the point rewards, you can earn 1 Orb every day the first time you complete a Forging Bonds map. Since the event will last for two weeks, that’s 14 Orbs you can earn just by playing every day!

Forging Bonds Conversations

The main focus of the event is, of course, forging bonds with characters. As you earn Friendship for each of the main characters, you’ll unlock Conversations with them, which are similar to the Support Conversations found in some FE games.

It’s worth noting that you do not have to have the specific hero in your Barracks in order to have conversations with them. These conversations also do not affect Summoner Support value. Once unlocked, you can view conversations again last in the Event Recap section of the Miscellaneous menu.
