Heroes: Mage Gauntlet Results, Echoes Bonus, and Lloyd GHB Teaser!

The Mage Gauntlet in Fire Emblem Heroes has officially ended! Robin put up a good fight, but, as expected, Tharja emerged as the final victor.

The final tally of all votes was a whopping 131,700,378,446! We utterly smashed the 10 billion vote goal, which means all players can look forward to the following rewards: 20 Orbs, 5 of each Great Badge, and 5,000 Universal Crystals. These gifts will be rewarded in the near future.

Additionally, Heroes is offering a Celebration Bonus for the upcoming release of Fire Emblem Echoes! All players will get a special one-time Log-In Bonus of 5 Orbs. You can pick up these free Orbs starting today, and they’ll be available until 2 June.

Lastly, @FE_Heroes_JP has posted up a teaser image for the next Grand Hero Battle featuring Lloyd from Blazing Sword! The battle will open up tomorrow, Friday May 19th, at 8:00 UTC. As usual, a new focus banner to aid you in the battle will start at the same time.

Heroes: New Sacred Seal Quests Live!

New Sacred Seal quests are now live in Fire Emblem Heroes! Just like in the previous mission, complete various quests to earn yourself new Sacred Seals. These are special skills that can be passed around between your characters.

The current quest line contains three seals: HP +3, Fortify Res 1, and Spur Def 1. HP +3 is a repeat from the last quest line, and will convert to 300 Hero Feathers if you already earned it. The other two are both new.

Additionally, the quests reward you with up to five 3★ characters: Felicia, Donnel, Draug, Hana, and Barst. You can use these characters to complete the quests to earn your seals. The final quest in the mission also rewards five Orbs!

This set of Sacred Seals quests will be available until 1 June at 7:59am UTC.

Cipher Spring 2017 Livestream: Cards, Artwork, and News for Upcoming Sets!

Yesterday the Fire Emblem Cipher team hosted another exciting seasonal livestream for Cipher fans! Hibiku Yamamura, the voice actress for Rinea from Fire Emblem Echoes, joined Ryota Kawade and Young to host the show.

After a bit of banter, they jumped right in to showing off some promotional goodies for S9. Instead of holo marker cards this time around, each box will contain a reprinted promo card. The two cards available in S9 boxes are of Lilina from Binding Blade and Elincia from Path of Radiance. Both cards were originally included in Japanese magazines.

Packaged in with the reprint promos are two preview promotional cards for S10. These cards feature Alphonse and Sharena, two of the original characters from Fire Emblem Heroes, as Lord and Princess respectively. These cards are particularly interesting as they feature no symbol or colour! Like all preview promos, these cards use the official art for these characters.

Additional goodies include the previously revealed promo sleeves, as well as some Cipher-related Echoes DLC. VincentASM already detailed all of the DLC details in his earlier article, so please check it out if you’re interested!
