Fire Emblem Heroes Swaps Heroes And Permanently Adjusts Stamina Costs

Finally, you don't have to see Takumi every time.

Fire Emblem Heroes is changing up the roster and retaining some popular launch promotions.

A new hero set called "Family Bonds" replaced the two standing pools in today's update. The new pool's 5* Focus characters are from the GBA's Sacred Stones (Eirika, Ephraim) and the Japanese-exclusive Genealogy of the Holy War (Seliph, Julia). The first Paralogues and other quests, some of which require the focus characters, have also been added.

The 2 orb/day "Launch Release Bonus", originally slated to end this week, has also been extended to March 14. The half Stamina cost for the Training Tower option and no-cost skill equipping, which were a part of the celebration, have been extended indefinitely, while a boost to experience for beating enemies under the current level will be added in early March.

3 Summons and I've yet to land a 5 star hero. Great job...good effort.

Did they alter Eirika's name for some reason, or is that just a typo?

Elika is the best Fire Emblem character.

Oh, equipping skills was supposed to cost stamina? And the Training missions were meant to be twice the stamina cost regularly? I sorta actually never knew that and assumed the current status of things was the base. Well, nice to know I won't have to change my expectations, heh.

The Paralogue content is pretty thin. It's nice to have more single player missions to do, especially as each gives an orb upon beating it, so that's another 9 free orbs. Plus the related quests, though I'm definitely NOT biting and roling for any of the current featured characters. All three of my five-stars are Red, and I am in desperate need of a Grey heavy Hero Focus lineup. Oh well, that's another two weeks of waiting before I start gambling again.

I'm liking the pace of events and quests and daily heroes to get. I'm sorta worried that they'll ease off on the gas pedal later on, the constant updates/events/quests they've had going on since launch has kept me pretty attached to the game.

This is the first time I've been able to juggle THREE mobile games at once between this and Miitomo and Pokemon Go.

Good changes here. Hopefully, there will be tweaks to the stamina system for those who want to go heavy in to their mobage game. A permanent and unchanging cap of 50 is pretty low.
