Heroes: More Archaneans Arrive with Ascended Fjorm!

The trailer for the next batch of New Heroes is here–and there’s a twist. “New Heroes & Ascended Fjorm”, which runs from 18th October 2021 (UTC) will feature characters from Mystery of the Emblem alongside the new Fjorm from the “Ice & Flame 4” Tempest Trials+ event.

Note: You can check out the Japanese version of this trailer here.

The featured Heroes in the banner are: Wolf, Malice, Roshea and Ascended Fjorm. Wolf and Roshea are members of the Wolfguard, an elite squadron created by followers of Hardin. Meanwhile, Malice is a mercenary who debuted in BS Fire Emblem and returned in New Mystery of the Emblem.

As for Fjorm, she’s the first Ascended Hero–a new type of Hero that comes with a new mechanic. Ascended Heroes can be given an Ascended Asset, which is a second Asset, in addition to their default Asset/Flaw. This is effectively a free +3 or +4 to a secondary stat.

Non-Ascended Heroes can also be given an Ascended Asset by using an Ascended Floret item. One Floret will be awarded the first time a unique Ascended Hero is summoned (but no more). Also, one Floret will be awarded the first time you access the “Ascend Traits” menu (so all players will get 1 and lucky players can get 2).

By the way, if you need to change a Hero’s Ascended Asset after the fact, you can do so by using a Trait Fruit. Furthermore, Ascended Assets have no impact of Arena scoring etc.

Besides that, the remaining two members of the Wolfguard will also be available. Sedgar: Coyote’s Dutiful will appear in an upcoming Grand Hero Battle, while Vyland: Coyote’s Justice will be obtainable from special Quests, before being added to the summoning pool from the next Special Heroes banner.

Heroes: Version 5.8.0 Details (Turn 1 Safety Fence for Aether Raids)

Today, we have more details for Version 5.8.0 of Fire Emblem Heroes, which is scheduled for 3rd~4th August 2021.

Feh Pass Loyalty Perks

As outlined earlier, Feh Pass subscribers will receive a few additional benefits for maintaining a subscription over multiple months–namely more Summoner Support slots and free Trait Fruits and Dragonflowers.

For more details, please refer to our previous article.

Aether Raids

A new Safety Fence (O) structure will be added.

Until Turn X (where X is the structure’s Level), after the defensive team’s skills activate at the start of their turn, if the entire raiding party is outside the defensive team’s attack range or the entire raiding party is within 2 rows and 7 columns centred on the structure, the defensive team will immediately end its turn.

In Version 5.8.0, the max Level for the Safety Fence (O) is 1. It can be constructed using 500 Heavenly Dew.

Hopefully this should relieve some of the troublesome Turn 1 strategies used, such as the ones that rely on the 7th slot being danced.

Also, the following structures can be raised to Level 9:

  • Infantry School (O and D)
  • Armor School (O and D)
  • Flier School (O and D)
  • Cavalry School (O and D)

Furthermore, these songs can be purchased from the Aether Resort Concert Hall:

  • “Preparations: Pilgrimage” (Shadows of Valentia game)
  • “Battle: Destiny” (Thracia 776)

Heroes: Fjorm Stars in “Flower of Ice” Music Video!

The Fire Emblem Heroes team is continuing the Book II hype with another special video, this time featuring Fjorm singing her heart out.

“Flower of Ice” is performed by Cristina Vee Valenzuela, with English lyrics by Christian Nutt and original Japanese lyrics by Saori Kodama. Conveniently, there are multiple translations available via the captions.

If you’re curious, there’s also a Japanese version of the music video, with Chinese subtitles.

Unless I’ve misremembered, this is the first time we’ve seen Anna’s high-resolution 3D model as well.

Heroes: “Ice & Flame” Tempest Trials Series Follows On From Book II

The current Tempest Trials event that started in Fire Emblem Heroes today is slightly different to the norm. “Ice & Flame 1” continues from where Book II left off, with Fjorm encountering Nifl, the God of Ice.

For those who haven’t played Book II or need a recap, the FE Heroes team has created a special video just for you!

As its name suggests, “Ice & Flame 1” is the first of a multi-part series; it will be continued in “Ice & Flame 2”, available after the 5.8.0 update, which should arrive some time in August.

Because the story is important, the cutscenes from the “Ice & Flame” series will be added to the Event Recap once each respective Tempest Trials is over, regardless of whether players saw them or not.

Please continue for some screenshots from “Ice & Flame 1”, including our first look at Nifl!
