As usual, we also get new quests for each round of the Voting Gauntlet. Most of the quests are the same as in previous gauntlets. However, with the update of the Sacred Forge, some quests now also reward Sacred Coins! Complete up to four battles in each round of the Gauntlet to earn an additional 45 Sacred Coins.

A new series of quests is now available in Fire Emblem Heroes!

The Three Heroes Quests will be available for about two weeks, ending on 20 October at 6:59am UTC.
We now have details for the next voting gauntlet in Fire Emblem Heroes! The Blood of the Dragons Voting Gauntlet begins on Monday. The gauntlet will pit eight dragon or dragon-descendant characters head-to-head. Check out the bracket below.
The first round will see match-ups of:
- Young Tiki vs. Male Corrin
- Fae vs. Ninian
- Adult Tiki vs. Nowi
- Female Corrin vs. Sophia
According to the in-game notification screen, there will be some slight changes from previous gauntlets. The update text reads: “Adjustments were made to how the game calculates which armies are stronger and weaker.” It looks like we can expect some tweaks regarding those flag multiplier bonus hours.
Starting today, two banners featuring all eight heroes are also available! The Block A banner contains 5★ versions of Y!Tiki, M!Corrin, Fae, and Ninian. The Block B banner has 5★ versions for the other half, A!Tiki, Nowi, F!Corrin, and Sophia. If you don’t have some of these characters yet, now is the perfect time to summon and train them!
The Blood of the Dragons Voting Gauntlet begins on Monday, 9 October at 7:00am UTC. Each round lasts slightly under two days, giving players a break in between rounds for calculations to be processed. The final round ends on 15 October at 4:59am UTC.
