The Battle of the Beach Voting Gauntlet begins today in Fire Emblem Heroes! All eight of the swimsuit characters from both summer banners are duking it out for fame and glory. Who will you be supporting? Check out the bracket in our earlier article, or head over to the Heroes official website for live updates every hour.
Since the Gauntlet is based on existing banners, there are no special summoning banners this time around. The Ylissean Summer banner just closed after a month-long run, though the Nohrian Summer banner is still going strong.
As usual, you can also complete a series of quests to earn additional Battle Flags to support your chosen hero. Once again, they’ve been updated, and now also reward Orbs and Dueling Crests for defeating enemies within the Gauntlet! Check out below for full quest details.
The first round of the Gauntlet will end in less than two days on 3 August at 3:59am UTC. The entire Gauntlet will come to a close next Tuesday and the winner will be announced at that point. May the best swimsuit win!
Additionally, August Quests are now live! Earn yourself a bunch of Orbs, Feathers, Shards, Crystals, and Stamina Potions by completing a bunch of tasks over the course of the next month. The quests are all similar to previous months’, but we’ve outlined the full list for you below.
Following last Friday’s Feh Channel update, we now have the finalised brackets for the Battle at the Beach Voting Gauntlet.
In the first round, the following pairs of swimsuit-clad Heroes will be battling it out:
- Gaius vs. Frederick
- Leo vs. Xander
- Robin vs. Tiki
- Corrin vs. Elise
This arrangement forces the boys and girls to fight among themselves and ensures the final battle will be between the most popular male and the most popular female. Alright, time to place your bets…
In addition, the Japanese Twitter account has provided an expanded event schedule for August till mid-September, featuring many of the new events previously highlighted by Feh–but also a couple of repeat events.
For the benefit of those who can’t read Japanese, we’ve provided a translated version above. Do note that the schedule does not appear to include every upcoming event, so there could be some surprises still to be revealed.
The second Tempest Trials in Fire Emblem Heroes begins this Friday! Entitled Tempest Trials: Resonating Fangs, this next installment focuses on characters from Fire Emblem Echoes. In fact, a new banner featuring 5★ heroes for Alm, Mae, Boey, and Faye is already available!
Those four heroes are the 40% bonus allies for the upcoming event. Three more Echoes characters—Clair, Tobin, and Lukas— are 20% bonus allies, as is Sharena. Like Masked Marth in the original Tempest Trials, Tobin is available as a prize within the event. You earn his 5★ at the 30k point mark. We don’t know yet any of the other new prizes, if any.
As mentioned in the Version 1.5 notes, Tempest Trials mechanics are updating slightly. Players will now receive more points from playing Normal and Hard maps, and enemy status will remain the same between teams.
Tempest Trials: Resonating Fangs begins this Friday, 7 July, at 7:00am UTC. Like the previous event, it will run for two weeks, ending on 21 July.
Additionally, the War of the Clerics Voting Gauntlet has now come to a close. After a long battle, Elise from Fire Emblem Fates finally takes her spot at the top. Don’t forget to claim your final rewards!
The War of the Clerics Voting Gauntlet starts today in Fire Emblem Heroes! Elise, Sakura, Maria, Lachesis, Lissa, Mist, Clarine and Priscilla are ready to fight head to head for fame and glory. Check out our earlier article for a break down of the event and its associated Summoning Focus banners.
As usual, you can complete a number of quests to earn additional Battle Flags to turn the gauntlet in your side’s favour. These quests have changed slightly from previous gauntlets and no longer require using Alfonse and Sharena. You can see a full listing of the new quests at the bottom of this post.
The official Fire Emblem Heroes website has also updated to include a page about the Voting Gauntlets. Most interestingly, the page contains a section where you can see the total votes for each character, updated every hour. You can check it out here, or within the app itself via a button on the Notifications page.
The first round lasts for a bit less than two days, ending on 29 June at 3:59am UTC. The entire Voting Gauntlet and its focus banners will come to a close next week on 3 July. Do your best to support your favourite little sister cleric and win the day!
Additionally, with the start of the next Arena season, the weekly Arena quests have now reset. Earn yourself some additional Stamina Potions, Dueling Crests, and of course precious Orbs by competing in many Arena battles! There will be one more quest reset next Monday, 3 July.
