Today is the start of Golden Week in Japan, which is a very special holiday-filled week. During this relaxing time, there are many celebrations–and this extends to free mobile titles like Fire Emblem Heroes.
Starting today until the daily rollover on 10th May 2019, there will be the first of two Log-in Bonuses. Summoners will receive First Summon Tickets up to 10 times. There are two types of tickets, denoted by “I” or “II” and they’ll be handed out alternately.
A few days later, from 29th April until 12th May 2019, there will be a second Log-in Bonus, but this one features Orbs as normal. However, a total of 20 Orbs will be available by logging in through 10 days, instead of the usual 13.
Also starting now until 10th May 2019, new daily maps will be added to Special Maps, awarding 1 Orb each by completing Normal and Hard difficulties, for 10 days in a row. That means you can snag a further 20 Orbs.
As for what you can spend the First Summon Tickets and perhaps your Orbs on, two “Hero Fest” banners are now available, until 10th May 2019. These feature the first and second year winners of Choose Your Legends.
First Summon Tickets with a “I” can be used in the year one banner, while those with a “II” can be used in the year two banner. Like previous Hero Fest banners, the starting appearance rate for 5-star Focus Heroes is 5%.
It’s nearly the end of the month, and that means it’s time for the monthly Legendary Banner and a new Legendary Hero to make their entrance to Heroes.
Roy: Blazing Lion is the latest Legendary Hero to join the fray, and will be joined by 11 other 5-Star exclusive Heroes, including Special and other Legendary Heroes. The banner begins today and will end on the 6th of March, 6:59am UTC.
Accompanying the new banner is a new Legendary Hero Battle, featuring our boy Roy.
You can earn a Fire Blessing and up to 9 Orbs for completing all difficulties from Normal to Infernal, and a Golden Imperial Tiara EX accessory for defeating the Abyssal difficulty. The LHB begins today and will end on the 6th of March, 6:59am UTC.
Legendary Roy comes with a new type of Bonus. The following screenshot describes it as, “Draw out tougher matches” within the Arena.
Essentially, aside from +3 HP to Fire blessed allies, this effect treats Roy’s own total stats as 175 if he is at 5-Star and level 40 – his own personal Duel skill. This allows your Arena team to fight against enemies with a higher Arena score. A new ability is slated to be released come April, which may add effects to allies – or even to Roy himself – outside of Arena.
Fire Emblem Heroes has shared news of the next version update, which is scheduled for early January 2019. You can find the information via the in-game notifications, but for your convenience, we’ll go over them here.
Firstly, as teased in the latest FEH Channel, Heroes with beast weapons will finally be arriving. No new information was shared, so we still only know of Tibarn and Nailah. But existing skills have been updated to account for these new weapons.
Next, Legendary Effects and Mythic Effects will play a slightly bigger role. In Aether Raids, Legendary Heroes will receive Mythic Effects if a Mythic Hero is present and both of their elements are aligned with the current season.
Likewise, Mythic Heroes will receive Legendary Effects if a Legendary Hero is present and both of their elements are aligned with the current season. This applies for all battles outside of Aether Raids, except Blessed Gardens.
For example, the current season is Water, Wind, Light and Dark. So if you have Legendary Fjorm (Water) and Mythic Eir (Light) in the same team, Fjorm will get a stat and Lift boost in Aether Raids, while Eir will get a stat boost in Arena etc.
A new day, a new banner to summon from! As revealed yesterday, today’s banner is a Legendary banner, featuring the new Legendary hero Eirika: Graceful Resolve!
Other focus units are as follows: Summer Tana, Flying Olivia, Legendary Ephraim, Bridal Ninian, Sumia, Legendary Lyn, Bidal Sanaki, Male Fell Robin, Female Fell Robin, Genny, and Innes.
As is the case with all Legendary banners, the chance to summon any off-focus Hero is decreased to 0%, so no 5-star summon will be anything but the above listed Heroes. Also, the chance to summon a 5-star has been raised slightly from the regular 6% up to 8%. Legendary banners are the only opportunity you’ll get to summon Legendary Heroes, so if you really want one of them, there really is no better time. Just know that you have equal chances to summon one of the other focus Heroes of the same colour. Hopefully you’ve been saving those Orbs! The banner ends on the 7th of November, 6:59AM UTC.
