Mobile spin-off Fire Emblem Heroes was recently updated to version 2.0. The large update comes with new content and features, including new story chapters and a free, unlockable legendary hero….
For a free-to-play title, Fire Emblem Heroes has been very generous with its orbs. Orbs are used to randomly summon new heroes and are the primary piece of loot to spend real money on. You can normally earn a limited amount of orbs through completing quests and main story missions.
This week Fire Emblem Heroes added Special Weapon Quests. These quests task you with beating specific training stratums or story missions with only users of certain weapons: sword, lance, and axe. Hopefully you’ve already earned enough orbs and summoned the right heroes to fill out a full team of each. The quests reward you with orbs, shards, and badges. The latter two are used to level up and promote heroes.
The Special Weapon Quests are only available through the weekend, ending Sunday, Feb 27 around midnight.
There are a bunch of other bonuses going on in Fire Emblem Heroes right now. Every day that you log in you earn two free orbs with the App Release Bonus. A special Exp Event awards 1.5 times the normal experience in every battle mode. The Exp Event ends Thursday, Feb 23.
There are also several Launch Celebration maps you can play in the Special Maps category. These maps are on-par with story missions, and reward a whopping three orbs for completing them on Normal and Hard. The third set was recently released, upping the total orbs earned through these maps to 18.
Relying on random draws from the orbs can be frustrating. Having so many opportunities to earn free orbs is a wonderful incentive. Fire Emblem Heroes is easily Nintendo’s best mobile game to date – Read our review.
