Today is the Summer Solstice, and Fire Emblem Heroes is celebrating with a new batch of Special Heroes! Spend some Orbs on the Summer’s Arrival Banner for your shot at summer versions of Tana, Cordelia, Innes, and Noire! You can take a look at our earlier article for a trailer and skill breakdown.
Paralogue 21, Summer’s Arrival, also joins the game today! Complete all three chapters and their associated Lunatic quests to earn up to 12 Orbs. Check out quest details below. Heroes players will also get an additional 13 Orbs over the next ten days with a new Log-In Bonus.
The Summer’s Arrival Banner will be around for a bit over a month, ending on 25 July. Likely, we’ll also get a re-run of last year’s Ylissean Summer Banner sometime during the coming month. More new Summer Heroes will probably be coming along next month as well.
Additionally, the second round of Arena Quests also begins today! You can see the quest listing in our original article for the quest line. We’ve also reached the halfway point in Tempest Trials+, so those Daily Quests now give double rewards.
When you’re ready to take a break from Tempest Trials+, head over to Special Maps for a GHB Revival event! Grand Hero Battle Revival: OIiver is back in Heroes, along with quests for Orbs as well.
If you weren’t able to beat all of Oliver’s maps before, now is the perfect time to try again. Furthermore, everyone has access to new quests involving the GHB! Defeat Oliver’s map under various conditions to earn an additional four Orbs and another 3★ copy of Oliver. You can see full quest details below.
Grand Hero Battle Revival: OIiver will be around for a bit over a week, ending on 28 June.
Additionally, @FE_Heroes_JP has given us a teaser for upcoming Special Heroes banner later this week! As expected, the banner will feature Summer Heroes. The silhouettes show a male and a female, as well as a tiny crab! Who do you think they could be?
This banner is scheduled to begin later this week on 21 June and is scheduled to last a full month. We’ll likely get a trailer revealing the units and their skills tomorrow.
The latest Tempest Trials+ event is now active in Fire Emblem Heroes. “Feud of the Fangs” is themed around the Black Fang organisation from Blazing Blade and runs until the rollover on 26th June 2018.
As a reminder, here are the Bonus Heroes again:
If you were lucky to obtain a new Hero from the Scattered Fangs banner, give yourself a pat on the back. Otherwise, there’s still time (although not a lot) to nab Linus from his Grand Hero Battle.
Failing that, Canas is himself a reward from this Tempest Trial and you can always count on the original Nino to do her best!
The story follows after Lloyd was defeated, echoing the events of “Four-Fanged Offense” in Blazing Blade. Except, Linus and his allies have a chance to exact revenge on the villain, who turns out to be Ursula this time.
The maps that appear in this Tempest Trial are from World of Blazing, Blazing Shadows and Love Abounds. Meanwhile the final map is based on the Dragon’s Gate, similar to an earlier Tempest Trial.
(An example of the final battle, based on Lunatic difficulty.)
As usual, you’ve got 10 days to build up your score. Here are the score-based rewards you can obtain:
