It’s like a clockwork: a new month means a new Software update for Fire Emblem Heroes! The next update is Ver. 3.5.0, and it will be released in early May (most definitely next week). It’s not nearly as meaty as Ver. 3.4.0, but it does bring some neat new features and some welcome improvements!
Here’s a quick rundown of what the update has to offer:
- Friend Mock Battles are being added to Aether Raids;
- New weapon skills and weapons to refine are being added;
- The Equip Seals screen is being improved.
Fire Emblem Heroes Ver. 3.5.0 – Aether Raids
Aether Raids is getting some new features and improvements, starting with Mock Battles. Those allow you to safely test your Raiding Party against a friend’s defense map, while getting some ideas for your own
To access Mock Battles, tap Edit Aether Keep > Help & Extras > Friend Mock Battle. By default, your defense map will be available for Mock Battles, but if you want to change that, tap Edit Aether Keep > Helps & Extras > Mock-Battle Settings.
The update will also bring two new Structures: Bright Shrine and Dark Shrine (available in offensive and defensive variants). At the start of a turn, they lower certain stats by up to -5, but only for the foe with the highest total of those stats, and through their next action.
Aether Resort is also getting some love, and more precisely an icon that is displayed when you have not collected the R&R Affinity for a given day, or if you have not seen that week’s Special Event. New R&R Amenities are also being added: three of them for the Inn, to be precise.
Fire Emblem Heroes Ver. 3.5.0 – New Weapon Skills and Weapons to Refine
What would a Software update for Fire Emblem Heroes be without the usual set of new Weapons Skills and Weapons to Refine? Ver. 3.5.0 will add the following new character-specific weapon skills, learnable at 5 ★:
- Bow of Devotion (Faye: Devoted Heart)
- Daybreak Lance (Lukas: Sharp Soldier)
- Panther Sword (Stahl: Viridian Knight)
- Bull Spear (Sully: Crimson Knight)
As usual, you will be able to upgrade those very weapons skills once you have acquired them.

Fire Emblem Heroes Ver. 3.5.0 – Other Changes
Finally, two more changes are on the way. First: Blessed Gardens will no longer be updated after May 26th. Of course, all the maps previously added will not disappear or anything, but new ones will no longer be added.
As for Allegiance Battles, rewards will be increased starting with the Season starting on May 28th:
- Rank rewards: Wind, Earth, Fire, and Water Blessings will be added;
- Score rewards: the amount of Hero Feathers will be increased, and Divine Dew and Orbs will be added.
Also, when tapping on certain items on the Inventory screen, the maximum number of that item that you can have at one time is now included in the description.
And that’s it for Fire Emblem Heroes Ver. 3.5.0!
