Fire Emblem Heroes treats us with a surprise trick, the earlier than usual reveal of the Trick or Defeat! banner. Of course, this also means a new paralogue, Trick or Defeat! and new Halloween-themed maps to go with it.
This banner features no new units, but some new niches are filled with the cast, including the elusive Red tome flier (Nowi), the first Armor bow user (Jakob) and the first Armor tome user (Henry), as well a first time effective vs Tomes weapon (Sakura).

Trick or Defeat! is slated to run from beginning of day October 30, until end of day November 28, so there’s plenty of time to try and collect orbs and summon some costumed companions!
Get ready for another Tempest Trials in Fire Emblem Heroes! The Tempest Trials: Genealogy of Light Summoning Focus is now live for players to prepare for the upcoming event. As expected, it features characters from Genealogy of the Holy War, including a completely new character: 5★ Ayra! You can also summon 5★ versions of Eldigan and Lachesis.
All three focus characters will be Bonus Allies in the next Tempest Trials, Ayra at 40% and Eldigan and Lachesis at 20%. The remaining three 40% allies are Sigurd, Deirdre, and Tailtiu, all of which are available in the current World of Holy War banner. The other two 20% allies are Arvis, available in the current Grand Hero Battle, and Arden.
With Ayra revealed as a gacha character, it’s no surprise that Arden is the Tempest Trials character reward. You can get a 5★ version of him at 30,000 points, and presumably a 4★ at 6,000. The screenshot also reveals that Sacred Coins will be included as prizes as well.
Tempest Trials: Genealogy of Light begins on 23 October at 7:00am UTC and will run through 6 November.
Three new characters from Genealogy of the Holy War are now available in Fire Emblem Heroes! The World of Holy War Summoning Focus is now live, containing new 5★ heroes of Sigurd, Deirdre, and Tailtiu. Check out our earlier article for a preview trailer and breakdown of the new heroes’ skills.
A new paralogue, also titled “World of Holy War“, is live as well! If you’ve spent all your Orbs trying to summon the new dancers, these chapters will help bring your supply back up. You can earn nine Orbs for beating each map, and another three Orbs by completing the associated Quests. You can see full quest details below.
In addition to Ayra who appeared in the trailer, another surprising face also appears in the Paralogue story…
In celebration of the new summoning focus, Heroes has also started another Log-In Bonus! You can get up to 13 Orbs just from logging in over 10 days while the banner is live.
The World of Holy War Summoning Focus and its associated quests will be available until 30 October.
Additionally, The Blood of the Dragons Voting Gauntlet came to a close over the weekend. After a long and daunting battle, Ninian from Blazing Sword has emerged victorious! The next long-term Heroes event has yet to be announced, but likely it will be coming soon.
