This is a friendly reminder that the Berkut Grand Hero Battle for Fire Emblem Heroes is now available to challenge.
Until the daily rollover on 25th July 2017, you can battle the Rigelian Emperor’s nephew in three difficulty levels: Hard, Lunatic and Infernal. For more details, please refer to our news post from yesterday.
By the way, if you’re stuck or looking for inspiration, our dedicated forum topic is a great place to get some ideas. (You may want to jump to the very end to find the latest happenings.)
A new series of Special Maps is now available in Fire Emblem Heroes! The Yamada Kotaro Challenge pits you up against heroes based on those trained by Yamada Kotaro, similar to the earlier Kozaki Yusuke Challenge. Unlike that previous challenge, Kotaro’s units now make full use of Skill Inheritance.
Yamada Kotaro’s illustration work with Fire Emblem started with Hasha no Tsurugi, a spin-off manga to Binding Blade. He is also a prolific artist for Fire Emblem Cipher, and appeared at a number of livestreams and events. For Heroes, he has illustrated Lyn, Narcian, and Bride Lyn.
The Yamada Kotaro Challenge consists of five maps available at two difficulties. Each map completion earns you one Orb for a grand total of 10 Orbs! The maps also include a series of quests. You can see a full breakdown of all quests below. The maps and their quests will be available until 25 July at 6:59am UTC.
Additionally, @FE_Heroes_JP has announced that Berkut from Fire Emblem Echoes will star in the next Grand Hero Battle! We don’t yet know what he will be like as a unit, but the twitter account did share his official Heroes artwork. The GHB is scheduled to begin next week.
Finally, a new series of Daily Quests has arrived to replace the weekly Arena quests. These short quests restart each day and give you some Shards, Crystals, and Feathers for completing simple tasks. You can see the full breakdown of the starting quests below. Likely the colours of the Shards and Crystals will change each day.
A new challenge awaits you in Fire Emblem Heroes! Starting today, a new series of special maps is available for all players. What makes these maps particularly interesting is that the enemies you fight against are based on the heroes owned by Fire Emblem illustrator Kozaki Yusuke!
There are a total of five different maps, each with two difficulty modes. Each map features four heroes based on Kozaki’s own player data. The data was taken before Skill Inheritance was implemented, and only base levels are used. Hard Mode enemies received a flat boost to their stats to increase the difficulty.
Kozaki Yusuke is the official artist for both Awakening and Fates. He also drew the in-game art for all of the Heroes original characters. He has previously tweeted pulls and builds of various Heroes characters, so the fact that he has been playing the game has been known for some time.
Completing each map on each difficulty level earns you an Orb a piece, for a total of ten Orbs! A new series of Quests also awards two additional Orbs along with some Shards and Crystals.
The deadline for the new maps and quests is 8 June at 7:59am UTC.
A new series of special maps is now available in Fire Emblem Heroes! Five Defensive Battle maps can now be challenged in the “Special Maps” section. Each map is available on two difficulty levels and requires you to defend for a number of turns, or until all reinforcements have been killed, to win. Each win nets you an Orb for a total of up to ten Orbs!
Additionally, a new series of Quests for the special maps is also available. Titled “Defensive Battles”, the quests require you to beat each of the maps under certain conditions. You can earn Shards, Crystals, and even a couple more Orbs for completing these quests.
The deadline for beating the maps and completing the quests is 25 May at 7:59am UTC.
The new Arena rewards system also goes live today! The “Check Rewards” screen has been updated to show the new Tier rewards. This screen shows your current tier and the rewards you can aim for this season. Fight your best to earn up some Orbs and Feathers!
Still not enough? Starting tomorrow, the Ursula Grand Hero Battle is making a comeback! Like previous repeats, there will be special Quests so even those who beat both maps are encouraged to try again. Most likely these Quests will offer additional copies of Ursula.
