The second Hero Fest has begun in Fire Emblem Heroes! The latest banner features 5★ versions of some very popular and useful heroes: Ike, Ninian, Julia, and Genny. Even better, the base rate to summon a 5★ unit in this banner is a whopping 5%!
The occasion for this banner is the Starter Support Event, to help newcomers get a good start in the game. Another newbie-friendly update is the Beginners Guide, which goes over the basics of Heroes gameplay. You can access it via the official site as linked above, or within the game itself.
We also get a new Starter Support Log-In Bonus! Since the Anniversary Log-In Bonus is still going on, this means we get four free Orbs each day for the duration of the bonus. So, you’ll have plenty of Orbs available to spend on the new banner!
The Hero Fest banner will be available for a bit over a week, ending on 18 August at 6:59am UTC. The Log-In Bonus will stick around a bit longer, ending on 25 August.
7 August is a huge day for Fire Emblem Heroes! The Version 1.6 update is ready for download. Either load up the app to get the update prompt, or you can download it manually.
Version 1.6 brings a lot of quality of life changes and some exciting updates. For summoning, 4★ and 3★ rates have been swapped for all new banners! Starting today, you will be more likely to summon 4★ heroes, which are stronger and come from a larger pool of characters. All summoners will also get one free summon from every new banner!
The new update also brings some cool new things like Arena Assault, the Catalogue of Heroes, and more Tempest Trials changes. For full details on everything included in the new update, please check out our earlier article. You can also see the patch notes directly in the Heroes Notifications section.
Just in time to enjoy these changes, the Cecilia and Lilina Bound Hero Battle begins today! Defeat them on three different difficulties to win up to nine Orbs. Like GHBs, all four of your heroes must survive these maps to reap the rewards. You can also try your luck at summoning 5★ versions of Cecilia, Lilina, and Roy in the associated Summoning Focus.
The Bound Hero Battle and its banner will be available until 14 August at 6:59am UTC. Don’t forget to enjoy your new, free summon!
Additionally, the 6 Month Anniversary Log-In Bonus begins today! Enjoy 2 free Orbs every day from now until 22 August. More exciting anniversary events will be coming soon as well. You can also snag your five free Orbs from the Retweet Event as well. It’s an exciting time to be a Fire Emblem Heroes player!
