Heroes: Defensive Battles Maps & Quests + New Arena is Live!

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.

Heroes: Mage Gauntlet Info, Arena Update, & EXP Event in 1.3.0 Update

A new update (1.3.0) is available for Fire Emblem Heroes! It includes some changes to the game, as well as information about the upcoming Voting Gauntlet and an event. Heroes will prompt you to download the update when you open the app.

The first thing you may notice upon logging into the game is a small pop-up featuring Feh, the owl, during loading. These little tips and tricks about the game will now display while loading Heroes.

Once the game has opened, you’ll see that the Hero Fest banners are gone, replaced with two new banners for the upcoming Mage Voting Gauntlet. The two banners feature the eight mages that will be competing in the Gauntlet. Spend your Orbs wisely to try and pull Julia, Linde, Tharja, Sanaki, Henry, Merric, Leo, or Robin!

The Gauntlet itself is scheduled to begin on Friday, 12 May. As previously noted, updates to the Gauntlet rules will give losing heroes a bit of an advantage. Hopefully this will result in more even battles between characters.
