Heroes: 3rd Grand Conquests is Now Live!

Another special battle event has begun in Fire Emblem Heroes! Prepare your strongest brigade and head to the Events for the 3rd Grand Conquests. Round 1 has just begun!

Just like before, Heroes players will start off in one of three teams in one of many Outrealms. This time around, players will be fighting battles across the continent of Archanea. Compete against the other two teams for prestige and prizes, and to raise your GC Tier for prizes! You can complete quests each round to earn more rewards as well.

However, there are a few changes this time around. Players will need to raise their ranks before they’ll be able to fight in more difficult battles. You need to reach GC Tier 4 to unlock Lunatic maps and GC Tier 8 for Infernal. Additionally, map effects have been expanded and are easier to view, and enemy brigades are expanded to 40 heroes.

Round 1 will end at reset on Monday, 19 May. Afterward, there will be a break for another few hours before Round 2 begins. The event as a whole will last until Tuesday, 22 May.

Heroes developers do seem to be actively tweaking and improving Grand Conquests still. So, if you’d like to give feedback about how the recent changes affect the game mode, or if you have further suggestions you’d like to make, feel free to offer feedback!

Heroes: New Power Banner with Corrin, Clair, and Camilla!

Another Weapon Refinery banner is now available in Fire Emblem Heroes! Summon from the latest New Power Banner for a shot at three 5★ heroes: Male Corrin, Clair, and Camilla.

All three of these heroes got weapon upgrades with the recent Version 2.5 Update. Clair and Camilla each get their own unique weapon. All three weapons can now be further upgraded in the refinery as well. Check out our earlier article for full upgrade details.

The New Power Banner will be available for a little over a week, ending on 27 May.

Additionally, pre-registration is now open for the next upcoming edition of Grand Conquests! To pre-register yourself, head to the Events menu and tap on the giant button; you can’t miss it.

Grand Conquests is also changing up slightly from its previous iterations. Enemy brigades will have 40 units instead of 20, same as Rival Domains. There are also some UI changes and improvements regarding map effects. Check out the Notifications screen for full details.

Moreover, Lunatic and Infernal difficulty modes will now require unlocking. You’ll have to reach GC Tiers 4 and 8, respectively, to access either mode. As such, it’ll be a bit harder to move up the tiers in the early stages of the event. This latest Grand Conquest will begin tomorrow, 17 May, four hours after reset.

Finally, Extra Stages have begun to appear in Tap Battle! One stage is available today, and more stages will appear every day throughout the length of the event. Don’t forget to play daily to keep earning your rewards!

Heroes: Version 2.5 Update Notification!

A new update is on its way to Fire Emblem Heroes! Check out the Version 2.5 Update Notification when you next log into the game.

The Version 2.5 Update will bring a lot of things to Heroes, some expected and some brand new. We’ll be getting some more Weapon Refinery options, and also some UI enhancements. One such enhancement is something many players have wanted for a while: an option to turn off Enemy Phase music!

Many of the unexpected changes fall into two categories: major Arena changes and an overhaul of the starting game Tutorial. Due to the Tutorial changes, all existing players will also receive a gift package.

Scroll on below for a deeper look at what the upcoming Version 2.5 changes will entail.

There will be a Maintenance Period starting on 8 May at 11:00pm UTC.. The update will go live as soon as the maintenance is over on 8~9 May. Additionally, because of the detailed Arena changes, the Arena will be closed all day on Tuesday and the next season will begin on Wednesday instead. This also applies to Arena Assault.

Additionally, the special Golden Week edition of Grand Conquests starts today! Make sure to read up on the changes from last event, such as the Rank Cap increase, and jump in when you’re ready. You can also already see the Grand Conquest Quests in the Quests and Missions page, including 3★ and 4★ Kaze: Easygoing Ninja.

Grand Conquests officially begins in a couple hours at 10:00am UTC. It will last for about a week, ending on 8 May.

Heroes: Legendary Heroes – Lyn Summoning Event!

It’s time for another Legendary Hero Summoning Event in Fire Emblem Heroes! Try your luck summoning from the Legendary Heroes – Lyn Summoning Focus. In addition to being a Legendary Hero, Lyn is our first Green Archer and also a rather controversial alt. Check out our earlier article from last week for a breakdown of her skills.

11 other 5★ heroes are also joining Lyn in this new banner: Legendary Ike, Mage Eirika, Fallen Celica, Legendary Ephraim, PA!Shigure, Micaiah, PA!Inigo, Halloween Henry, Genny, Halloween Jakob, and Legendary Robin. The starting summoning rate for a 5★ unit is 8% and there are no off-focus units! Good luck getting the heroes you’d like!

Legendary Lyn also appears as the boss in a new series of Special Maps. Complete all four difficulties for a Wind Blessing and and nine Orbs! Like BHBs, the maps cost 0 stamina and all four of your allies must survive the battle.

The Legendary Heroes – Lyn banner and its associated map will be available until 7 May. Of the Legendary Heroes available this banner, Robin will appear again next banner late May, Ike and Ephraim late June, and Lyn not until late July. Based on this information, we can assume that the next Legendary Hero will likely be a red unit.

Meanwhile, Golden Week celebrations are continuing! The second Log-In Bonus starts today, and new Special Maps continue to pour in. Additionally, pre-registration for the special GW-edition of Grand Conquests is now open as well. The event will begin tomorrow, complete with some new changes and additions.

Finally, today is 1 May and that means new Monthly Quests! As usual, the quests are split into three parts, all similar to earlier monthly quests. It’s a great source of additional orbs if you’d like a few more to summon on the Legendary Heroes banner. You can also earn up Stamina Potions, Hero Feathers, and more. They’ll be available all month.
