The early bird Michalis Grand Hero Battle in Fire Emblem Heroes was a grand success! Despite only being natively advertised in Japanese versions of the game, there was a very large turnout. 54,666 people completed either version of the map, and 13,415 even cleared Lunatic mode!
Since we managed to smash all goal milestones, we have also earned full rewards. As such, players can look forward to receiving 10 Orbs, 10 Stamina Potions and 5,000 Hero Feathers sometime in the next few days.
If you missed the event, Michalis will be back this Friday at the usual time. If you need some help, feel free to visit our Heroes forum to discuss strategy. The accompanying Focus Banner that leaked last week will also arrive then if you could use an extra boost for your team. Good luck to all players!
The Heroes in-game notification screen popped up today with a reminder about the next Great Hero Battle starring Michalis. The event is scheduled to start on Friday, as usual. However, there was an addendum in the Japanese notification of another related event as well…
On Monday, March 20th, at 11:15am GMT, players can attempt a special early version of the Michalis Great Hero Battle. However, it will only be open for 45 minutes! Like Ursula, he will be available as both a 3★ or a 4★ Hero. In order to earn the 4★ version, you will need to complete a difficult Lunatic map.
Additionally, all players will earn rewards based on the number of people who complete the early maps.
Hard or Lunatic
- 10,000 or more: 10 Stamina Potions
- 20,000 or more: 5 Orbs
- 50,000 or more: 5,000 Hero Feathers
This short event will only last for 45 minutes and will end at 12:00pm GMT. Good luck to all players!
UPDATE: Times have been corrected. Sorry for any inconvenience!
You can never have enough Orbs in Fire Emblem Heroes and Nintendo knows this as they’re adding even more ways for players to earn free Orbs!
Whether you’re a new player or one who’s been playing for ages, you’re sure to benefit from the new Starter Support campaign, which lasts from now until 3rd April 2017 (at 7:59 AM UTC).
Firstly, replacing the previous App-release Log-in Bonus is a Special Log-in Bonus, which grants 2 Orbs per day like previously. By our calculations, you can pick up this Log-in Bonus up to 17 times for 34 Orbs!
Secondly, there will be two Starter Support bonus maps added to the Special Maps section–one today and another from the 20th (in three days time). These maps award 3 Orbs each and have two difficulties, so you can get 12 Orbs at most.
