Heroes: Illusory Dungeon: Labyrinth of Despair & GHB Julius Revival!

A new Tap Battle has begun once again in Fire Emblem Heroes! Flex your fingers and head to the Events menu for Illusory Dungeon: Labyrinth of Despair.

For now, you can complete the first 40 floors. A further 20 floors will be available each day, followed by three more Extra Stages once we reach Floor 100. Make sure to complete each stage to earn lots of Orbs, some new Accessories, and also other goodies!

Furthermore, Daily Quests start today and will last throughout this upcoming week until 18 November. On 14 November, a new series of Tap Battle quests will be available. Illusory Dungeon: Labyrinth of Despair itself will be around until 8 December. Presumably a new Tap Battle will arrive to replace it shortly afterward.

Grand Hero Battle: Julius has also returned to Heroes! This GHB Revival actually began yesterday, but I missed it in the flood of news and images for the new Tempest Trials.

If you missed kicking Julius’s butt before, now’s the time to tackle him into submission. His battle contains a large amount of reinforcements, so be careful! You can also complete a new series of quests for Orbs and another 3★ copy of Julius. Check the in-game Quest screen for further details.

Grand Hero Battle Revival: Julius will be around until 16 November.

Heroes: Tempest Trials+: Before We Met Banner & Details!

Another Tempest Trials event is coming soon to Fire Emblem Heroes! In preparation for this event, you can try your luck summoning from the Tempest Trials+: Before We Met Banner. It contains focus units for three 5★ exclusive heroes: Ryoma, Leo, and Kinshi Hinoka.

As you might expect, all three of these heroes will be Bonus Allies in the upcoming Tempest Trials. You can also currently summon four others in the newly-released Adrift banner: the new alt versions of M!Corrin, F!Corrin, and Camilla, as well as the new Mikoto.

The final Bonus Ally is a new, young Azura. She will be available as a reward unit this TT! So even if you’re unlucky in your summoning, you’ll at least be able to have one bonus ally to use. As a dancer, she’ll likely be useful no matter your team composition.

Other revealed rewards include a Wind Blessing as well as two new Sacred Seals: Atk/Def Bond 1 and Water Boost 1. In addition to these special rewards, Tempest Trials are also a great source of Orbs, Feathers, and also prizes. I hope you’re looking forward to it!

Tempest Trials+: Before We Met begins on Monday, 12 November. The event and the matching Before We Met Banner will be available until 22 November.

Cipher S15 Weekly Recap: First Card Reveals & Livestream Reminder!

Welcome to the first Fire Emblem Cipher S15 Weekly Recap! Cipher Series 15, Shining World, will be coming out in Japan in a little over a month. The set contains cards from New Mystery, Conquest, Genealogy, Thracia 776, and TMS#FE. As we gear up towards the set release, @fecipher will be sharing cards every weekday.

Most of the cards for this week’s reveals, like most of the cards in the set, are for New Mystery. The very first reveals showed base versions of male Kris and Katarina. We also get to see gorgeous joined-art R foil cards for Marth and Kris! The final card features the two heroes together in the battle against Medeus, who appears between them.

The final Archanean card for this week is also S15 first SR card! It features an adorable Tiki drawn by Tetsu Kurosawa.

We also got to see a handful of cards for the other colours in the set. Representing Nohr, Female Corrin appears in both her human and dragon form. These cards are very similar to the first Male Corrin cards revealed for S14. Additionally, Leif and Seliph are here to represent their respective games. Both cards also feature supporting characters in the background.

These are all the cards we’ve seen so far, but more will be coming soon in this weekend’s Autumn Livestream! It will air tomorrow,10 November, via NicoNico and YouTube Live starting at 8:00pm JST (11:00am UTC).

As usual, Ryota Kawade and Young will be hosting. Satomi Satou (VA for F!Corrin) and Hibiku Yamamura (VA for Rinea and Shade) will also be joining in as guests. As a seasonal stream, we can also expect news regarding upcoming sets and perhaps a first look at some new Fire Emblem merchandise.

For those who can’t watch along live, we will post an article showing the streams highlights the following week.

That’s all we have for now! Cipher Series 15 will release next month on 13 December. In the meantime, it’ll be an exciting month of news, reveals, and speculation. For further discussion about Cipher, feel free to join us in the Cipher subforum on the forums! You can also check out the Cipher Wiki for translations of the cards and more detailed information.
