Welcome to possibly the final news article for 2021. Today, the FE Heroes team shared details for next year’s first version update.
Version 6.1.0 will be arriving on 5th or 6th January 2022, depending on your timezone. The biggest new feature is improved skill selection in Hall of Forms.
Hall of Forms
No doubt many of you are tired of seeing the same outdated skills continuously being offered.
Starting in the next Hall of Forms event, there will be improvements to the skill choices available from Floors 13 and above (Infernal difficulty).
Firstly, two skills will be offered each for A, B and C slots. Also, all of the skills will be exclusive skills or skills that cost 240 SP or more.
Two more Legendary Heroes will be receiving new skills.
Eirika: Graceful Resolve
A: Atk/Spd Solo 4 B: Lunar Brace II – Enables [Canto (2)]. Neutralizes effects that guarantee foe’s follow-up attacks and effects that prevent unit’s follow-up attacks during combat. Deals damage = 15% of foe’s Def. This skill can only be equipped by its original unit.
Lucina: Glorious Archer
Assist: Future Vision II – Unit and target ally swap spaces. Inflicts Atk/Def -7 on nearest foes within 4 spaces of both unit and target through their next actions. Grants another action to unit. (Additional action granted once per turn only.) This skill can only be equipped by its original unit. A: Swift Sparrow 3
Events added after Version 6.1.0 will award Divine Codes (Ephemera 1), which can be exchanged for the following limited-time combat manuals:
5-star: New Year’s Lethe and Hot-Spring Sakura

An additional 7 Heroes will be receiving new weapon skills. Including Canas, at long last.

Legendary Hero Updates
Another pair of Legendary Heroes will be receiving upgraded skills.
Special: Shining Emblem B: Binding Shield II – If unit’s Spd >= foe’s Spd+5 or if unit is in combat against a dragon foe, unit makes a guaranteed follow-up attack and foe cannot counterattack or make a follow-up attack. This skill can only be equipped by its original unit.
B: Slick Fighter C: With Everyone II – At start of turn, if unit is within 2 spaces of an ally, grants Def/Res +6 to unit and allies within 2 spaces for 1 turn. If a foe uses bow, dagger, magic, or staff and initiates combat against an ally within 2 spaces of unit, triggers [Savior] on unit. If unit triggers Savior, grants Atk/Spd/Def/Res +4 during combat. This skill can only be equipped by its original unit.

We have another monthly update for Fire Emblem Heroes coming soon. Version 5.10.0 is scheduled for release on 5th or 6th October 2021, depending on your timezone.
Of note, there are various improvements to the Heroes Journey mode, whose second event recently ended.
A new “Available Memento Events” button will be added. It’ll allow players to choose and view any Memento Event by consuming a new item called Memory Fragments, but only up to 3 times.
Memory Fragments can be obtained after getting a repeat Memento Event when spending Memento Points. The number of fragments given will be the same as the Rapport of the repeat event (so 4 fragments for a 4 Rapport event).
20 Memory Fragments are required to choose a Memento Event. Up to 60 fragments can be earned per Heroes Journey event. When the event ends, all unspent fragments will disappear.
When choosing a Memento Event using fragments, it’s possible to select from all types and Rapport. You may even choose Memento Events from previous seasons. Events unlocked using fragments will be recorded in the Memento Logs like usual.
Additionally, when the Heroes Journey event is not active, you can review your Memento Logs and successful pairs.
Furthermore, new Memento Events will be added. From the screenshot shown (further up), they will be from “Archive of the East.”
Finally, there will be a Home Screen notification for Heroes Journey when it’s on-going (which you can disable). Plus the “Memento Event” button will be easier to recognise.
