Golden Week has arrived in Fire Emblem Heroes, which is a good excuse to celebrate as any (especially if your name is “Anna”).
Firstly, there are two Log-In Bonuses active between now and the daily rollover on 15th May 2020 (UTC). If you log in for ten days, you can receive 20 Orbs and 10 First Summon Tickets for the “A Season for Picnics” re-run.
“A Season for Picnics” is this year’s Golden Week special banner. The featured Heroes are casual versions of Genny, Felicia, Flora and Lukas enjoying a good ol’ picnic. For details of their abilities etc., please refer to last year’s article.
In addition to the 10 First Summon Tickets from the Log-In Bonus, there are 5 more First Summon Tickets from the Golden Week Quests (for a total of 15). These quests will be available until 8th May 2020 (UTC).
Lastly, there’s currently a 5x EXP and SP event going on. This will also be hanging around until 8th May.
Unrelated to Golden Week, the green-haired Voting Gauntlet has now started. There’s nothing too complicated about this one, although you can read about it here if you want to.
I sure wasn’t expecting to have a picnic to plan for this soon after the teaser was just revealed. I guess I’ll just have to rush out and get ready for the 19th, as there’s A Season for Picnics upon us, and it brings some alts for popular characters!
Fans that suspected Genny were right on the nose (and I’m pretty dang glad to see a Lukas alt, personally)! Featured in the this batch are a handful of new skills, notably geared towards Aether Raids, and the next X-Opening skill, as well as some nifty inheritable weaponry. The units coming are Lukas, Flora, Felicia and Genny, but that’s not all…
The next Tempest Trial+ reward unit can be spotted in the form of a Green Mage Cavalry, Leo: Extra Tomatoes. He’ll be available in the next TT+ which kicks off on April 24th.
A Season for Picnics runs from April 19 until May 18, so there’s a whole month to pick up a picnicker. Remember that we’re getting a new Legendary Hero on the 27th, too. Orbs are going to be tough to hold onto for the next couple of weeks!
