■ Tactics Drills
Tactics Drills is being added as a way to learn the rules of Fire Emblem Heroes as you play.
In Tactics Drills, you will be presented with situations that test your strategy with a fixed set of Heroes that you must use to overcome challenges within a given number of phases. Both your turn and the enemy's turn are counted as individual phases—so if the map specifies that it must be completed within three phases, then you have your turn, your enemy's turn, and one more turn of your own to complete the map.
There are three levels of difficulty for Tactics Drills, and you will receive a reward (such as Orbs or Hero Feathers) the first time you complete a map.
These maps teach the basic rules of combat, so they're recommended for beginners.
These maps teach you about using various skills.
These maps are meant for advanced players.
Note: You must complete Book I, Chapter 13 of the main story to challenge Grandmaster maps.
Once Ver. 2.7.0 has been released, we will add new maps to either Skill Studies or Grandmaster every Thursday at 07:00 a.m. UTC
■ Weapon Skills and the Weapon Refinery
The following new unit-specific weapon skills will be available to be learned by the Heroes listed below at 5★ by spending SP:
Hero who can learn this skill: Katarina: Wayward One
Hero who can learn this skill: Nephenee: Fierce Halberdier
Hero who can learn this skill: Titania: Mighty Mercenary
・ Reese's Tome, Dauntless Lance, and Draconic Poleax can all be upgraded in the Weapon Refinery after they've been obtained.
・ To learn weapon skills, tap Allies, then Ally Growth, and then Learn Skills.
The following weapon skill will be able to be strengthened with Arena Medals and Divine Dew for added effects:
Mystletainn → Dark Mystletainn
Hero who can learn this skill: Eldigan: Lionheart
Note: To access the Weapon Refinery, you must clear Book I, Chapter 13 in the main story and then clear the second Intermission map, The Rite of Blades.
■ Quest Progression Display
The screen that is displayed when you complete or make progress in a quest is being changed. Currently, a separate screen was displayed for each quest, but starting with the Ver. 2.7.0 update, all quest updates will be displayed in a single screen.
■ Other Improvements
・ On the map-selection screen, the screen will automatically scroll to newly added maps.
・ Battle Music is being added to the Settings menu, so background music that plays during battle scenes can be toggled on or off—or it can be set to play only special background music.
・ Event Recap is being added to the Miscellaneous menu. This feature can be used to review conversations from past events.
・ A Restart option is being added to the menus in Grand Hero Battle, Tactics Drills, and other maps that can be played without using any stamina.
That's it for the upcoming update!
