Heroes: Information for Version 6.9.0, Coming 5~6th September

We have some information for this month’s version update for Fire Emblem Heroes, scheduled for release on 5th~6th September 2022, depending on your time zone.

You can view the information via the official website and we’ll also paraphrase the details below.

Weapon Refinery

Another 7 Heroes will benefit from upgraded weapon skills.

New weapon skills + refines

  • Tempest’s Claw – Haar

New refines

  • Sublime Surge – Sothis
  • Dark Spikes T – Brave Lysithea
  • Moon Gradivus – Brave Dimitri
  • Virtuous Naga – Legendary Julia
  • Flower Hauteclere – Brave Edelgard
  • Wind Parthia – Brave Claude

Combat Manuals

New events from Version 6.9.0 will award Divine Codes (Ephemera 9), which can be exchanged for the following limited-time manuals:

  • 5-star: Dancer Quan and Dancer Reinhardt
  • 4-star: Easter Luthier, Abel, Miriel, Norne and Felicia

Legendary/Mythic Heroes

Legendary Julia and Sothis will be receiving updated skills.

Julia: Crusader of Light

B: Light and Dark II – Inflicts Atk/Spd/Def/Res-5 on foe, neutralizes unit’s penalties and foe’s bonuses (from skills like Fortify, Rally, etc.), and disables foe’s skills that “calculate damage using the lower of foe’s Def or Res” during combat.
This skill can only be equipped by its original unit.
C: Atk/Res Menace

Sothis: Girl on the Throne

Special: Sirius+ – Cooldown: 2
Neutralizes effects that inflict “Special cooldown charge -X” on unit. When Special triggers, boosts damage by 35% of unit’s Spd and restores HP = 35% of damage dealt.
This skill can only be equipped by its original unit.
B: Null C-Disrupt 3

Heroes Journey

New Memento Event(s) will be added.

Summoner Duels

The Favor Level cap will be increased to 2,300.

This will come into effect with the season starting 13th September 2022.

Aether Raids

Buttons for “Change Teams” and “Keep Teams” will be added to Auto-Create.

You’ll be able to confer blessings (where possible) with Keep Teams to change blessings without altering anything else. Doing this on a team with locked skills will not unlock the team.

A notification will appear on the Home screen when it’s within 3 days of the start of the next season and the following conditions apply:

  • There’s a Hero in the additional slot of your defensive team that will become unusable because your tier will drop in the next season.
  • Your Fortress (D) level will drop because your tier will drop in the next season.

The Catapult (O and D) can be upgraded to Level 10.

Two new songs will be added to the Concert Hall in the Aether Resort.

  • “Oliver’s Fall” (Radiant Dawn)
  • “Light on a Window” (Fates)

Heroic Grails

You’ll be able to summon the following freebie Heroes using your hard-earned Grails:

  • Summer Seth (TT)
  • Brigand Boss (GHB)


A notification will appear on the Home screen when 3 or more days have passed since the current Arena season started and you haven’t battled yet. This notification can be disabled via Settings.

The display of Hero movement paths will be updated. Currently, there are occasions when Heroes seemingly move through spaces they cannot move through due to effects like Obstruct. (This is only a display issue; the actual effects are correct.)
