Heroes: 3rd Grand Conquests is Now Live!

Another special battle event has begun in Fire Emblem Heroes! Prepare your strongest brigade and head to the Events for the 3rd Grand Conquests. Round 1 has just begun!

Just like before, Heroes players will start off in one of three teams in one of many Outrealms. This time around, players will be fighting battles across the continent of Archanea. Compete against the other two teams for prestige and prizes, and to raise your GC Tier for prizes! You can complete quests each round to earn more rewards as well.

However, there are a few changes this time around. Players will need to raise their ranks before they’ll be able to fight in more difficult battles. You need to reach GC Tier 4 to unlock Lunatic maps and GC Tier 8 for Infernal. Additionally, map effects have been expanded and are easier to view, and enemy brigades are expanded to 40 heroes.

Round 1 will end at reset on Monday, 19 May. Afterward, there will be a break for another few hours before Round 2 begins. The event as a whole will last until Tuesday, 22 May.

Heroes developers do seem to be actively tweaking and improving Grand Conquests still. So, if you’d like to give feedback about how the recent changes affect the game mode, or if you have further suggestions you’d like to make, feel free to offer feedback!

Heroes: Bridal Banner

If you’re following FE_Heroes_JP’s Twitter, you’ll see that they just posted news about the next incoming bridal banner.

News should hit in a few days as to whom we’re receiving, so look forward to speculation in the meantime on our forums!

Heroes: New Power Banner with Corrin, Clair, and Camilla!

Another Weapon Refinery banner is now available in Fire Emblem Heroes! Summon from the latest New Power Banner for a shot at three 5★ heroes: Male Corrin, Clair, and Camilla.

All three of these heroes got weapon upgrades with the recent Version 2.5 Update. Clair and Camilla each get their own unique weapon. All three weapons can now be further upgraded in the refinery as well. Check out our earlier article for full upgrade details.

The New Power Banner will be available for a little over a week, ending on 27 May.

Additionally, pre-registration is now open for the next upcoming edition of Grand Conquests! To pre-register yourself, head to the Events menu and tap on the giant button; you can’t miss it.

Grand Conquests is also changing up slightly from its previous iterations. Enemy brigades will have 40 units instead of 20, same as Rival Domains. There are also some UI changes and improvements regarding map effects. Check out the Notifications screen for full details.

Moreover, Lunatic and Infernal difficulty modes will now require unlocking. You’ll have to reach GC Tiers 4 and 8, respectively, to access either mode. As such, it’ll be a bit harder to move up the tiers in the early stages of the event. This latest Grand Conquest will begin tomorrow, 17 May, four hours after reset.

Finally, Extra Stages have begun to appear in Tap Battle! One stage is available today, and more stages will appear every day throughout the length of the event. Don’t forget to play daily to keep earning your rewards!

Heroes: Grand Hero Battle: Julius!

Love for Genealogy of the Holy War continues to pour in in Fire Emblem Heroes! Prepare your strongest team to tackle Grand Hero Battle: Julius, now available in the Special Maps menu.

Julius is a particularly devious boss. His unique tome, Loptous, requires you to attack him “effective against dragons” weaponry, otherwise you pay a harsh -Atk penalty. Complete all three maps to earn three copies of Julius, one 3★ and two 4★, as well as 2,000 Hero Feathers. You can see his Infernal difficulty stats and skills, as well as the Infernal map layout, below.

Grand Hero Battle: Julius will be available for a little over a week, ending on 23 May.

Additionally, Heroes has shared an updated event calendar for May and June. The banner starting on 27 May should have been titled “Heroes with Stance Skills”. The original article detailed the event calendar is now updated to reflect this change.
