Update: Results of the Michalis preview event: 54,666 players cleared the Hard battle, and 13,415 cleared the Lunatic battle. Everyone gets 10 Orbs, 10 Stamina Potions, and 5,000 Hero Feathers (thanks Brian).
Original: As was previously announced, the second Starter Support bonus map in Fire Emblem Heroes is now live. It’s available in two difficulties, Normal and Hard, and you get 3 orbs each for clearing them.
Also, this next piece of news flew a bit under the radar. The next Grand Hero Battle featuring Michalis will begin on Friday, March 24th, as the in-game notice describes – however, for some reason only the Japanese version of the game announced the following on top of that: on Monday, March 20th from 12:15 PM CET to 1 PM CET (roughly 90 minutes after this post went live), a special early preview of the Michalis Grand Hero Battle will be available. During that time, players can attempt both the Hard and Lunatic versions of the battle to try and get Michalis early. There will also be rewards sent out to all players the more people can beat the map during this limited time frame:
Hard & Lunatic clear rewards:
