Fire Emblem Heroes: all the details from the 6th Feh Channel presentation (Grand Conquest, Update, more)

Today, the latest Feh Channel presentation for Fire Emblem Heroes was livestreamed on YouTube, sharing details about upcoming events and content updates. If you missed the presentation, no problem: the full recording is now available!

Here it is:

First, a new Summoning Focus (including new Heroes) was announced: World of Thracia. You will find all there is to know about it in this post!

But that’s not all: on April 21st, a new Tempest Trials event (to be more precise, a Tempest Trials+ event, check out below for more details!) will go live, and will have Finn, the Lance of Legend as a reward. More details coming soon!

Next: details about the upcoming Software update for Fire Emblem Heroes. Let’s start with additional details about the new Weapon Skills and Weapons to strengthen at the Weapon Refinery.

First, the new Weapon Skills (character-specific, learnable at 5 ★), that can be learned from the “Learn Skills” menu (in the Allies menu):

  • Nameless Blade (Fir: Sword Student; Karel: Sword Demon). Accelerates Special trigger.
  • Forblaze (Lilina: Delightful Noble). Lowers enemy’s Res.

And here’s the new Weapon Skills that you will be able to strengthen at the Weapon Refinery (using Arena Medals and Divine Dew):

  • Binding Blade (Roy: Young Lion). Becomes effective against dragons, and can be customised how you like.
  • Regal Blade (Lloyd: White Wolf). Makes Lloyd stronger if he’s near an infantry ally that can also use magic.
  • Nameless Blade (Fir: Sword Student; Karel: Sword Demon)
  • Forblaze (Lilina: Delightful Noble)
  • Siegmund > Flame Siegmund (Ephraim: Restoration Lord)
  • Armads > Berserk Armads (Hector: General of Ostia)

The second big change coming to Fire Emblem Heroes applies to the Tempest Trials event, that is getting a new name: Tempest Trials+. Of course, it’s not just the name that changes! Here’s the 6 big changes coming into effect:

  • Automatic recommendation on what difficulty to play
  • Boost to all allies during the first 2 battles of the day
  • Double XP & SP during the first 2 battles of the day
  • All bonus allies give a 40% score boost. No more “20% bonus” tier!
  • Stamina cost reduction
  • Event duration and rewards adjusted. It will now last 10 days instead of 2 weeks, and the total score for rewards will be similar to the Tempest Trials Mini events (making it easier to earn them).

The first Tempest Trials+ event is going live on April 21st, and as mentioned above, it will allow you to get Finn, the Lance of Legend as a reward! Check out this post for more details.

Also, with the next update, the developers are adding something called “Special Orb Promo”. Every month, there will be a special pack of Orbs available for purchase in the store. The first one is naturally called Special Orb Promo: April Edition, and it goes live on April 12th. It will allow you to get some Orbs at a special price, but also get a bonus at the same time:

  • 21 Orbs (15 Orbs + 6 bonus)
  • 6 000 Hero Feathers (April Bonus)

And now, onto a pretty big change (at least for players interested in specific Heroes): the rarity of some Heroes will drop from 5 ★ to 4 ★ and 3 ★. This change actually goes live later today (on April 10th), before the update even drops, and mostly impacts Heroes that were added to the game up until September 2017. There will be no change to other 5 ★ Heroes, and 4 ★ or 3 ★ Heroes, or the drop rate for each category.

  • Berkut, the Prideful Prince
  • Camus, the Sable Knight
  • Zephiel, the Liberator

  • Arvis, the Emperor of Flame

Speaking of Grand Hero Battles, the next one has been announced! It features Saias, the Bishop of Flame (from Fire Emblem: Thracia 776), and it will go live on April 17th. Also, the stamina cost for all the “special” battles (Grand Hero Battles, Bound Hero Battles, regular Hero Battles) will drop to 0 from April 11th onwards.

Finally, onto the biggest piece of news from the 6th Feh Channel presentation… a new type of event, the Grand Conquest!

In this event, all players are automatically assigned to 3 armies, and they have to battle in order to get control of territory across the continent. The continent itself is divided in 30 areas, and they’re all assigned a colour: Green, Red, or Blue. This colour indicates which army is currently controlling each area.

The goal of this mode is for players to battle and make it so their army control the most areas. In order to get control of an area, it’s pretty simple: you have to attack it. However, there’s a catch: you can only attack an area that’s nearby one of your own.

The battles are pretty much the same as in Rival Domains Special Maps (check out this post for more details). You only have 10 turns to earn as many points as possible. After the battle, your score is added to the total for the area you’re in. But attacking isn’t all you have to do in this mode: you also have to defend areas you control!

The scores are tallied every 2 hours, and the army with the highest score in a given area gets to control it. If you want to get more points, keep in mind than you can get a bonus depending on the number of allies fighting in a given area… try to fight in as many areas as possible, so that your army can get an advantage!

There’s also a stamina cost to take into account: each battle takes 1 stamina unit, and you can get 1 every hour (you can have up to 8 stamina units).

Finally, there’s something called GC tiers. The more points you earn in battle, the higher your tier. Each tier gives you access to a set a rewards, including bonus Orbs, Refining Stones, etc…. but also point bonuses for Grand Conquest (+15% score to neighbouring areas, for example).

The first Grand Conquest event goes live on April 13th, and lasts until April 19th (April 18th in North America). First, there’s the pre-battle preparations, that lasts until 3.59AM PT / 6.59AM PT / 11.59AM BST / 12.59PM CEST / 7.59PM JST on April 13th.

To celebrate the launch of this new type of event, there will be a Grand Conquests Kick-off Bonus, with 20 Orbs available to all players until May 9th.

That’s all the for the 6th Feh Channel presentation for Fire Emblem Heroes! As always, make sure to check out the Events and Content Updates and Characters page to keep up to date with all that’s happening in Fire Emblem Heroes!
