Despite the potential of being mistaken for an April Fool’s joke, Feh has decided to share details of the next Fire Emblem Heroes update, Version 5.4.0, scheduled for 4th April 2021, around 11 pm (UTC).
New Item: Celestial Stone
When players receive their guaranteed Hero after performing 40 summons in a “New Heroes” banner, they will be gifted one Celestial Stone. In general, one stone can be obtained per banner, but if the banner allows multiple guaranteed Heroes, multiple stones can be obtained.
Celestial Stones can be exchanged for items such as Forma Souls, Trait Fruits and Dragonflowers. The amount of stones to purchase an item varies. Also, each item has an exchange limit; this limit will be reset around every half year.
Of note, it seems you can buy one Forma Soul using 3 stones. Which is a great way to earn them without spending money, so long as you’re patient and are able to save Orbs.
Observant Summoners may have noticed during the re-run of Love Abounds, there was a note that Valentine’s Hector will be appearing in another banner soon.
With Halloween Nowi recently receiving a refine, some Summoners wondered if Hector would be receiving a refine and thus appear in a New Power banner. Well, guess what?
Marisa: Shamsir (and refine options)
Sumia: Flower Lance (and refine options)
Morgan (M): Refine options for Grima’s Truth
Quan: Refine options for Gáe Bolg
Valentine’s Hector: Refine options for Berserk Armads
We’re coming to another month soon, which means another version update for Fire Emblem Heroes! Version 5.3.0 is expected to arrive on 3rd March 2021, at 11 pm (UTC).
Without further ado, here’s the list of changes…
Addition of Divine Codes (Part 2)
A new series of standard (yellow paper) Divine Codes will be added: Divine Codes (Part 2). After the update (and each new season begins), all rewards that gave Divine Codes (Part 1) will give the new ones instead.
Divine Codes (Part 2) can be used to compile Heroes from the newly-added “Normal 2” category, which also includes Heroes from Three Houses (among many others).
Note that you can continue to use Divine Codes (Part 1) to compile the original set of “Normal 1” Heroes. On top of that, if you don’t have enough Divine Codes (Part 1), you can pay the remainder using Divine Codes (Part 2).
“Target Score” will be added. There are 5 levels of Target Score; the first time your high score surpasses a Target Score, you’ll receive a bonus to your Cumulative Score.
The stage select screen will also be updated to display your cumulative score, next cumulative score reward, high score and the next Target Score along the top.
We have two pieces of information for Summoners today! Firstly, Feh has shared the interim results of A Hero Rises 2021. Here’s what the top 20 placements currently look like.
As a reminder, the top 8 Heroes will participate in a special Voting Gauntlet later this month and the winner of the gauntlet will be gifted to all Summoners for free. Meanwhile, the top 4 from the gauntlet will also appear in a summoning banner.
Additionally, Version 5.2.0 of Fire Emblem Heroes is available to download. Most of the details were already shared via the 4th anniversary Feh Channel, but we’ll go over everything anyway.
Fire Emblem Heroes has shared details of the first version update of 2021: Version 5.1.0. It is scheduled for release on 6th January, at 11 pm (UTC).
Vault of Heaven (Aether Raids)
Tiers 29 to 38 will be added to Aether Raids; collectively, these 10 new tiers are known as the “Vault of Heaven”.
In the Vault of Heaven, the rules are the same as always, but for each raid where all of your units survive, a bonus of +10 will be added to your Lift score. You can also obtain more Heroic Grails and Dragonflowers as rewards.
When a player ends their season at Tiers 27 or 28, they will start the next season at Tier 31, which is inside the Vault of Heaven. While in the Vault of Heaven, if a player ends their season at Tier 38, they will start at Tier 31 during the next season. Otherwise, they will start at Tier 23.
The following limited-time combat manuals can be exchanged using Divine Codes (Ephemera 1). You can acquire these Divine Codes from events that begin after Version 5.1.0.
5-star: Hot-spring Ryoma and Myrrh
4-star: Eliwood, Oscar, Altena, Barst and Fae
These fortunate Heroes will be receiving new weapon skills and/or refine options:
