As told during the latest Feh Channel broadcast, the latest update for Fire Emblem Heroes is now available! Including Dragon Flowers, Heroic Ordeals, and so much more!
What’s In Store for the 3.2.0 Update
Thank you for playing the Fire Emblem Heroes game! Here’s an update from the Fire Emblem Heroes development team.
We would like to introduce the new features and changes in the Ver. 3.2.0 update.
Dragonflowers Have Been Added:
A stat-increasing item, Dragonflower, has been added to the game. Dragonflowers can be obtained from Heroic Ordeals and Aether Raids.
Using Dragonflowers will let you increase one of a Hero’s stats. To use Dragonflowers, tap Allies, then Ally Growth, and then Use Dragonflowers.
There are four types of Dragonflower, each corresponding to a different Hero movement type. When increasing one of a Hero’s stats, the corresponding type of Dragonflower will be consumed.
・Pictured above (from left to right): Dragonflower (I), Dragonflower (A), Dragonflower (C), Dragonflower (F)
The maximum number of times Dragonflowers can be used on a Hero depends on their movement type and release date: infantry Heroes released before Ver. 3.2.0 can use Dragonflowers ten times, while other Heroes can use Dragonflowers five times.
・Stat increases gained from Dragonflowers will not affect the strength of opponents you’re matched with in the Arena. (Likewise, such stat increases will not affect your score after winning in the Arena.)
・As you use Dragonflowers to increase a Hero’s stats, each use will require more Dragonflowers to be consumed. (The number of Dragonflowers required for each use will increase at a slower rate for Heroes who can use Dragonflowers up to ten times.)
・If two Heroes who have both had their stats increased via Dragonflowers are merged via the Merge Allies feature, the stat increases of the Hero who has had the most Dragonflowers used on them will be passed on.
・If a Hero that has had Dragonflowers used on them is turned into a Combat Manual, the record of their Dragonflower use will disappear, and any increased stats will be lost.
Heroic Ordeals Have Been Added:
A new mode, Heroic Ordeals, is making its first appearance.
For Heroic Ordeals, a map has been prepared for every Hero that has been released up to this point. You can take on a map for each unique Hero you’ve gained as your ally!
The primary Hero taking on the Heroic Ordeal map is deployed alongside an additional Hero. The first time that primary Hero defeats two or more foes and wins the battle, you will receive a Dragonflower reward.
You can use this chance to collect Dragonflowers and use them to develop your favorite Heroes!
・Please note that you cannot take on the Heroic Ordeal connected to Heroes who you cannot add to your teams: Heroes you haven’t obtained, Heroes you’ve sent home, Heroes you’ve turned into a combat manual, etc.
・Also, Heroic Ordeals do not grant EXP, SP, or HM.
Merge Allies Is Being Expanded:
○ The stat increase Heroes gain during their first merge will be larger than before.
For Heroes with an Asset and a Flaw:
In addition to two stats increasing (as happens prior to the update), their Flaw stat will also increase.
・Example: Merging a level 40 5★ Eir: Merciful Death (Asset: Spd, Flaw: Res) for the first time.
For Heroes without an Asset and a Flaw:
In addition to two stats increasing (as happens prior to the update), those stats will increase by 2 instead of 1 and one of the remaining three stats will increase by 1.
(Which of the three remaining stats is increased will vary by Hero.)
・Example: Merging a level 40 5★ Eir: Merciful Death (no Asset or Flaw) for the first time.
The increase in stats will also effect Heroes who were merged prior to the update. Heroes who have been merged one or more times before the release of Ver. 3.2.0 will have their stats further increased after Ver. 3.2.0 is released.
In addition to this change, players will be able to view a Hero’s Asset and Flaw within the game.
○ Each Hero’s Asset and Flaw can be displayed by tapping on their stats while viewing the Hero’s status screen.
A new option, Asset/Flaw Color Display, is being added to Settings. When this option is turned on, Asset stats will appear blue and Flaw stats will appear red.
・The numbers representing stats that have been increased by skill effects during battle will turn blue, and numbers representing stats that have been decreased by skill effects during battle will turn red.
・Please note that stat numbers that have been displayed in green up to and including Ver. 3.1.0 will no longer be green.
Sharena’s Hero Introductions Have Been Added:
An About Heroes button has been added in the Summon menu. You can tap it to view Sharena’s Hero introductions—which also feature her unbelievable art!
For example, she’ll tell you about Ike: Stalwart Heart, one of the Heroes in the Greil’s Devoted summoning event, like this:
As new Heroes are released, new introductions will be added, so you can keep coming back to learn about all the new Heroes as they arrive!
・Please note that though the About Heroes feature is available, not every Hero that has released up until this point has had an introduction prepared for them.
・Notes on each summoning event, along with the List of Heroes, can be found by tapping More Info in the Summon menu.
Aether Raids Has Been Updated:
Aether Raids has been adjusted, and the changes will be reflected starting with the season that begins on 7/2/2019 7:00(UTC)
○ Higher Tiers have been added
Tiers 22 through 27 have been added. In Tier 22 and above, players earn more rewards than they earned from Tiers 21 and below. This change will allow players who have reached Tier 21 of Aether Raids to aim even higher.
Players who reach Tier 22 or above at the end of a season will have their Lift reset to 11,000 (the starting Lift of Tier 21) at the start of the next season.
○ Aether costs have been adjusted
The feature that allowed players to play Aether Raids without spending Aether once per day has been removed and replaced by generally reduced Aether costs:
・ The amount of Aether required for Aether Raids has been halved from its cost in Ver. 3.1.0 (changing to 9 + Lift / 200 [rounded up]), and is now capped at 50.
・ The amount of Aether gained from destroying resources has also been halved from its yield in Ver. 3.1.0 (changing to 2 + Lift / 1,000 [rounded down]), and is now capped at 10.
These adjustments to Aether costs enable players to enjoy Aether Raids at their own pace.
○ The balance of defense maps has been adjusted
Due to a striking deviation in the usage rate of the Spring Breeze and Lava Floes defense maps, the terrain of these maps has been adjusted to give the attacking side a greater advantage.
○ The placement of Legendary Heroes has been adjusted
When Auto Setup is used in Aether Raids, the current season’s Legendary Heroes will now take precedence in map placement.
With the Ver. 3.2.0 update, seasons will be on a temporary irregular schedule, with the first season of Ver. 3.2.0 starting on starting on 7/2/2019 7:00(UTC) and running until 11/2/2019 23:00(UTC)
After that, seasons will return to their regular schedule, starting Tuesday at 7:00(UTC) and running until the following Monday at 23:00(UTC)
