Wishing everyone a safe and happy new year!
Fire Emblem Heroes has shared details of the first version update of 2021: Version 5.1.0. It is scheduled for release on 6th January, at 11 pm (UTC).
Vault of Heaven (Aether Raids)
Tiers 29 to 38 will be added to Aether Raids; collectively, these 10 new tiers are known as the “Vault of Heaven”.
In the Vault of Heaven, the rules are the same as always, but for each raid where all of your units survive, a bonus of +10 will be added to your Lift score. You can also obtain more Heroic Grails and Dragonflowers as rewards.
When a player ends their season at Tiers 27 or 28, they will start the next season at Tier 31, which is inside the Vault of Heaven. While in the Vault of Heaven, if a player ends their season at Tier 38, they will start at Tier 31 during the next season. Otherwise, they will start at Tier 23.
The following limited-time combat manuals can be exchanged using Divine Codes (Ephemera 1). You can acquire these Divine Codes from events that begin after Version 5.1.0.
- 5-star: Hot-spring Ryoma and Myrrh
- 4-star: Eliwood, Oscar, Altena, Barst and Fae
These fortunate Heroes will be receiving new weapon skills and/or refine options:
- Arden: Arden’s Blade (and refine options)
- Genny: Springtime Staff (and refine options)
- Lewyn: Forseti refine options
- Bow Hinoka: Warrior Princess refine options

There’s already a trailer for them, but here’s another look at the Special Heroes that will feature in the “Summer Passing” banner, scheduled for 18th June.
Mia and Marth form a new type of Duo Hero, called a “Harmonized Hero”. These are Heroes that co-operate from completely different worlds. They also have a Harmonized Skill that benefits Heroes from the games they’re from. Read more
