The current Tempest Trials event that started in Fire Emblem Heroes today is slightly different to the norm. “Ice & Flame 1” continues from where Book II left off, with Fjorm encountering Nifl, the God of Ice.
For those who haven’t played Book II or need a recap, the FE Heroes team has created a special video just for you!
As its name suggests, “Ice & Flame 1” is the first of a multi-part series; it will be continued in “Ice & Flame 2”, available after the 5.8.0 update, which should arrive some time in August.
Because the story is important, the cutscenes from the “Ice & Flame” series will be added to the Event Recap once each respective Tempest Trials is over, regardless of whether players saw them or not.
Please continue for some screenshots from “Ice & Flame 1”, including our first look at Nifl!
We’re approaching the Halloween season, which means more spooky Special Heroes coming to Fire Emblem Heroes! This time, all the Heroes have one thing in common: dragons.
Note: You can check out the Japanese version of this trailer here.
The Special Heroes introduced in “Dragons Harvest” (which runs from 8th October UTC) include Halloween versions of Robin (as Grima), Xane, Dheginsea and Harmonic Tiki and Ninian. Xane will also appear as a 4★ focus Hero.
There’s a saying around here that “Goldoa will not move”. Unless the order of the world has been threatened. Or when there are sweets at stake. Besides the Black Dragon King, this is Xane’s debut in Heroes–and it’s interesting to see how his mimicking ability has been translated.
Additionally, Ena: Autumn Tactician will be available in the “Ever Two Halves” Tempest Trials event that starts on 9th October (UTC). Other rewards from the Tempest Trials include the Brazen Def/Res 1 and Atk/Def Solo 1 Sacred Seals.
The bonus Heroes for this event are the four new Special Heroes, Ena herself, plus the regular versions of Young Tiki, Ninian and male Robin. You can attempt to summon the latter three from the Tempest Trials banner, which is available now.
Please continue reading to learn about the new Heroes!
Summoners, if you haven’t done so already, you can now grab the Version 4.9.0 update for Fire Emblem Heroes.
The main attraction is the addition of Trait Fruits, which allow you to adjust a Hero’s Asset (boosted stat) and Flaw (decreased stat).
Right now, it’ll be a while before there are enough fruits to do so. But if you wait until 15th September (UTC), there will be one-time Frontline Phalanx quests that yield enough fruits for one Hero.
Perhaps equally exciting, the four Brave Heroes from the 2nd round of Choose Your Legends have received new weapon refinery upgrades for their existing weapons. Please continue to the end for the details.
Starting on 8th September (UTC) and running until the 18th is a new Tempest Trials+ event, Dancing Affinity. The top prizes include copies of Eldigan: Strutting Lion and the Res Feint 1 and Armor March 1 Sacred Seals.
The bonus Heroes for the event are the new Special Heroes from To Stay Dreaming, which also opens on 8th September: Dancer versions of Sigurd, Quan, Ethlyn and Lachesis. Plus Dancer Eldigan from the event and the regular versions of Sigurd, Deirdre and Eldigan. The latter three are available in a Tempest Trials banner.
No, you’re not dreaming. The Resplendent Hero arriving on 25th August 2020 will be Eirika: Restoration Lady.
This version of Eirika is wearing fanciful attire from … *grabs FEH spellchecker* Ljósálfheimr, one of the two realms in Book IV. Check out her page here. Before Eirika, Resplendent Olwen will be available from 10th August.
Moving back to the present, pirates have invaded Fire Emblem Heroes. Pirate versions of Brigid, Tibarn, Geese and Harmonized Veronica (and Xander) are up for grabs. Or maybe they’ll run off with your Orbs, like they did mine.
These Special Heroes were revealed in the recent Feh Channel. For details of their abilities, please carry on to the end of this article.
Nintendo also shared a cute video of Veronica and Xander gearing up for the pirate festival.
