Heroes: Version 2.10.0 Incoming – Abyssal GHBs, new weapon refines + QoL

October has just started and Fire Emblem Heroes is already off to an exciting start with an announcement of the next version update: 2.10.0. This will be arriving during “early October”, so hopefully pretty soon.

This update includes four main features.

Abyssal difficulty for daily Grand Hero Battles

The following daily Grand Hero Battles will receive Abyssal difficulty maps: Navarre, Michalis, Ursula, Xander, Lloyd, Narcian and female Robin. Similar to existing Abyssal maps, you can earn golden accessories from clearing them.

Lite Data Version

As the years and months have gone by, Fire Emblem Heroes has started to become pretty big, space-wise. For those concerned about the game taking up too much space, a “Lite Data Version” will be provided.

This version of the game will have lower visual and sound quality, but will reduce the size of the game data by a whopping 75%. Currently the game is around 1.5 GB, so the file size should end up less than 400 MB.

New players can choose to download the Lite Data Version or the original “High Quality Version” when starting the game. Otherwise, you can switch over by going to the Miscellaneous menu in-game or by going to Clear Cache from the title screen.

New weapon refinement options

Lon’qu will receive a new weapon skill Solitary Blade that can be learned when he’s upgraded to 5★.

Meanwhile the Frelian royals, Tana and Innes, will gain refinement options for their legendary weapons, Vidofnir and Nidhogg.

Presumably, Solitary Blade can also be refined like all the new weapons added to existing characters.

Naming favourite-marks

To make things more convenient, you’ll be able to assign a name to the 8 favourite marks that can be given to Heroes. In the example, they’ve named each mark after all the consoles that Fire Emblem has appeared on (or will, in the case of the Switch).

    I can see Solitary Blade having a Solo skill, like Atk/Spd Solo or Atk/Def Solo.

    • Mason Klaus

      I agree, though it’ll probably be the former rather than the latter cause his defense isn’t all that great and his average HP isn’t helping much. I mean its possible he’ll get Solo ATK/DEF but unlikely.

  • Finally Tana gets something nice. Have had her in my main team since she was released, so it will be interesting to see what it’ll be.

    • Diovani Estivalet

      I believe Tana’s Vidofnir main effect will change from “+7 Def when a foe using sword, lance or axe initiates combat” to “+7 Def when foe initiates combat”. The refinement effect, however, I don’t have any idea to what can be… Tana is the first unit to have Guidance, so maybe she will have a movement skill, like Aerobatics, as her refinement.

    Naming favourite-marks is really good! I hope there is so much space so I can name my light blue Hearts: Loli Desu-troyer~

    “Abyssal difficultly for daily Grand Hero Battles”


    • I know, I FINALLY managed to beat Robin’s on every difficulty, why now?!

      • mrkisukes

        Veronica to the rescue. She and Reinhardt are the ones I used to beat both Tiki and Hector abyssal.

    • Jesus Ojeda

      If they don’t add reinforcements, those won’t be that bad (perhaps Robin will require a team of dancers as a must).
      Valter and Takumi abyssal… now when those arrive, things will get ugly.

    Lon’qu gets an upgrade?

    Yuri Lowenthall will be pleased XD
