Fire Emblem Heroes Update 5.8.0 Patch Notes
Here are the official patch notes for Fire Emblem Heroes Update 5.8.0 that is now rolling out to all the supported platforms of the game:
■ A New Event, Heroes Journey, has been added
Heroes Journey, a new event where you make memories with pairs of Heroes of your choosing, is set to begin! Watch over your Heroes as they strengthen their bonds to one another throughout the course of their journey.
Heroes Journey is an event in which you can form a team consisting of either two Heroes or one Hero and your custom summoner, then view the Memento Events that they make along their travels.
The Rapport between your chosen pair builds as you view their Memento Events, and you can receive rewards such as Hero Feathers, Dragonflowers, and more based on how much Rapport they gain. Win the Final Boss battle, which you can challenge when you have built up enough Rapport, and you can earn special accessories as keepsakes to remember their journey!
Plus, you can earn 3 Orbs from the quests that are available during the event!
The first Heroes Journey event is scheduled to start 8/14/2021 12:00 p.m.(PT) For a detailed explanation of how to play the event, what rewards are available, and more, please check the notification that is posted when the event begins.
We also introduced this event in the Feh Channel (August 1, 2021) video that was released a few days ago. Please check it out if you haven’t already!
■ The Arena has been updatedWe added new features and maps to the Arena.
○ New Features
You will be able to use the below new features after updating your app version.
If you lose or surrender in the middle of a chain of wins, tactical retreat will treat it as though your chain was never broken, but this feature can only be used once per chain. When tactical retreat is used, your chain of wins won’t end, you will maintain your score, and you will be able to continue fighting matches in that chain.
・ There is no limit to how many times this feature can be used in a season.
・ If you use the Reset button to begin a new chain of battles in the Arena, your tactical retreat counter will reset.
If you have won one or more battles in a chain of battles, a Reset button will display on the Arena menu. If you tap the Reset button, your chain of wins and score will return to zero and you can start your chain of battles over from the beginning.
Note: Even if you start over from the beginning, your high score until then will not change.
○ New maps
We will add new maps for the season starting 8/10/2021 12:00 p.m.(PT)
■ The Heroes that appear in summoning events have been reorganized24 5★ Heroes who appeared between September of 2018 and February of 2019 will appear anew in summoning focus revivals starting 8/8/2021 12:00 p.m.(PT)
Also, the affected Heroes will no longer appear in the 5★ Hero category starting with the Special Heroes summoning event: Perilous Seas that begins 8/5/2021 12:00 p.m.(PT), and will instead appear in the 4★ Special Rate summoning category.
