With Ver. 1.2.0, a brand new type of event for Fire Emblem Heroes debuted, called Tap Battle: Illustory Dungeon. And believe it or not, it’s already time for the second one! It’s called “Shadowed Memories”, and it runs from March 23rd to April 6th.
Fire Emblem Heroes – Tap Battle: Illusory Dungeon – When does it take place?
The event takes place from March 23rd to April 6th. During that time, there’s sets of Daily Special Quests for you to tackle, with different rewards every time. And starting on March 26th, there will even be two types of Tap Battle quests for you to clear. Make sure you check out the Events and Content Updates page for details about those quests.
All stages are not available right from the beginning, but are added regularly as the event progresses:
- March 23rd: 8 stages available (up to floor 40)
- March 24th: 4 additional stages (up to floor 60)
- March 25th: 4 additional stages (up to floor 80)
- March 26th: 4 additional stages (up to floor 100)
The deepest floor will only unlock on March 26th, no matter how fast you go through the previous ones!
Fire Emblem Heroes – Tap Battle: Illusory Dungeon – How does it work?
Tap Battle: Illusory Dungeon is a simple battle game, where you need to tap the Summoner on the screen with the right timing to defeat enemies, as they’re drawing near you. If your timing is just right, enemies will be hit by a critical attack, and will fly off-screen. You can rack up combos by chaining those critical attacks.
Unlike other events, you can even use Heroes who have not yet been leveled up, as they can still fight at full power.
Your goal in this event is to clear all 100 floors of the dungeon, but who knows what you will find on the deepest one… (Hint: a special reward!). In order to clear a stage, all you have to do is get to the end of it with HP remaining: it’s as simple as that!
Each stage contains 5 floors to explore, with bosses appearing at floors 20, 40, 60, 80, and 100. Unlike regular enemies, bosses are much trickier: they have more HP, more complex movement patterns, and they hit much harder!
If you’re looking for a challenge, you can choose to play on Hard: this makes enemies harder to defeat… and significantly more numerous than on Normal! But you don’t need to worry about missing any reward by sticking to Normal: all of them can be earned on Normal. Hard is just a little extra for players who are really enjoying the game and want to test their skills!
But if Hard still isn’t enough for you, you can try Expert Mode: this one forces you to tap each Hero’s row to attack enemies, instead of simply tapping the Summoner. Your records for each mode are saved separately, so you can try switching things up a bit once you’ve mastered one. All rewards are also available in Casual, so no need to force yourself to play on Expert if you don’t feel like it!
By the way, you can earn rewards every day you play!
It’s recommended to play with the music and character voices on. You can adjust the settings by tapping the “Tap Battle Settings” button. If you feel that your timing is off, try adjusting the timing settings there! You can use the “Adjust Timing” to make adjustments to the input timing, and then use the “Manu Adjustment” option to fine tune them.
