Fire Emblem Heroes Turns 3, Introduces Subscription-based Feh Pass

Posted by | Mobile, News | No Comments

Mobile strategy spin-off Fire Emblem Heroes is still getting updates and events three years after its release. During the month of February, Nintendo is hosting several special events to celebrate the anniversary. They’ve also introduced a new subscription service, the awkwardly named Feh Pass.

During the 3rd anniversary, you’ll be able to grab 333 Heroic Grails just by logging into Fire Emblem Heroes. A special summoning event will guarantee a 5 star hero summon from the pool of heroes that were added in 2019.

Other special events include Hero Fests, new quests, Daily Reward Maps, and Daily Bound Hero Battles, all of which can net Orbs and Dragonflowers. Aether Raids will also be available to earn special SP Aether Stones, which can be used to construct a unique 3rd anniversary structure.

Fire Emblem Heroes also now has a subscription service, which Nintendo is calling the Feh Pass. It comes with a rather shocking price: $9.49 per month.

The Feh Pass grants two 5 star Resplendent heroes each month, which include a hero in their normal, and resplendent attire. Resplendent Heroes feature new illustrations, voice acting, and boosted stats. The first Resplendent Hero is Lyn, available now. Starting on February 24, Cordelia will become available.

The Feh Pass also grants access to Special Quests, a re-do turn feature on maps, and the ability to replay the same map for no stamina cost. Kind of sucks that the last two are incredibly helpful features locked behind a paywall, in a game that already features real-money transactions and random loot boxes in the form of hero orbs.

Fire Emblem Heroes is free-to-play on iOS and Android.

Earn Oodles of Orbs This Week in Fire Emblem Heroes

Posted by | Mobile, News | No Comments

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.
