What's in Store for the 1.3.0 Update[edit | edit source]

Thank you for playing Fire Emblem Heroes. Here's an update from the Fire Emblem Heroes development team:

  • Update to the Arena

The rules for Arena have been revised with the goal of making it easier to battle players and get rewards.

1. Rank Rewards will change to Tier Rewards.

Until this update, players received Hero Feathers as a reward for their rank. However, starting with ver. 1.3.0, players will receive rewards based on a tier system.

Also, in Tier 4 and up, players can receive Orbs in addition to Hero Feathers. With this update, not only will all participants receive a reward, but the higher the rank a player gets, the better the rewards they get as they advance through the tiers.

2. At the end of the season, players will be promoted or demoted through the tiers according to their rank.

Until now, promotion was based on the high score each player achieved. However, starting with ver. 1.3.0, Arena placement will be based on a player's ranking within their own tier.

Also, for Tier 8 and above, it is now possible to be demoted.

The individual rank that determines whether a player is promoted or demoted will be based on the number of participants.

3. After this rule change, players will start from their current tier.

The Arena will open with these new rules starting on 5/9/17 at 7:00 a.m. UTC. Players will begin from the tier they made it to prior to this point.

We expect fierce battles to be fought over positions in the highest tiers but hope that everyone will continue to bravely fight on!

4. Bonus Heroes will now also affect your defense score.

That's right - if a Bonus Hero is part of a successful defense, the defense score will be doubled.

5. New maps have been added to the Arena.

These new maps include defensive terrain. A Hero on a defensive terrain tile receives a damage reduction of 30% of their Def or Res.

  • Voting Gauntlet Rules

The way the Voting Gauntlet works will change: there will be a limited-time boost for the army fighting at a disadvantage.

In the Voting Gauntlet, if your army is at a disadvantage, the number added to the score when you vote will be multiplied by 3 for a limited time.

This boost will not only affect the total score of the army that's at a disadvantage but also each player's total personal score.

Take note: when the armies are at equal strength, neither army will receive a boost.

  • Adjustment to Training Tower Difficulty

The levels of enemies appearing in the Eight and Ninth Strata of the Training Tower have been adjusted. The maps that will appear have also been changed.

  • Addition of Gameplay Tips

When Fire Emblem Heroes is launched, gameplay tips will appear on the loading screen.

  • More Organizational Options

Units can now be sorted by Hero Merit and SP.

  • Other Fixes

The issue where a "!" would not appear in Special Maps to notify the player that some maps had yet to be cleared has now been fixed. The issue where a "!" would not appear during an event has also been fixed.

That's all for the ver. 1.3.0 update. We hope you continue to enjoy Fire Emblem Heroes!

Grand Hero Battle Revival[edit | edit source]

Active: 4/24/17 at 7:00 a.m. UTC to 5/2/17 at 6:59 a.m. UTC.

Grand Heroes Robin: Mystery Tactician and Navarre: Scarlet Sword are waiting again in Special Maps!

Perhaps you couldn't meet them before. Maybe you weren't yet strong enough to defeat them in battle at the time.

Now is your chance to make these Grand Heroes into your allies!

There are also limited-time special quests available too. Even if you won these Grand Hero Battles before, you can obtain additional Grand Heroes by completing these quests! (The special quests will be active for the same period as these Grand Hero Battles.)

Version 1.2.0 Update[edit | edit source]

Thank you for playing Fire Emblem Heroes. Here's an update from the Fire Emblem Heroes development team about additions to the game for version 1.2.0:

  • Earn Hero Merit
  • Before Battle Begins, Swap Spaces
  • Sacred Seals are Here!
  • Changes to Inherit Skill and Merge Allies
    • When using Merge allies, it will become possible to inherit skills that were previously inherited when using Merge Allies. All inherited and base skills and their learned status will be passed on.
  • Adjustments to Arena Scores and Matchmaking
    • Matchmaking conditions will be changed to help better match players with Arena opponents of similar strength. In Version 1.1.1, matches are based on the total base stats of an opponent's characters. In version 1.2.0, matches are based on a combination of the four values listed below:
      1. Character levels and rarity rating.
      2. Number of bonuses gained by using Merge Allies.
      3. Total base stats after removing the effects of all skills, including Weapon skills.
      4. Equipped skills.
    • Additionally, this will also slightly increase the score you can obtain on all difficulty settings.
  • Bonus Character Descriptions in the Arena
  • Changes to Notifications
  • Allies 4* or Less Will Earn More EXP
  • Maximum Stamina Increased to 99
  • Complete Purchase Button Added
    • A Complete Purchase button will be added to the title screen menu and the Shop menu. Select this option to complete an Orb purchase when the purchase process was not completed due to a communications error.
  • Other Information
    • The previously announced Defensive Battle and Reinforcements maps are planned to be added during the second half of April. Thanks for your patience!
