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:

In addition to the Starter Support event, those of you playing Fire Emblem Heroes on an Android device will find another nice surprise waiting for you: a free 4-star (female) Corrin. While she’s not the most powerful unit ever, she might be a good candidate to test the new skill inheritance system.
Again, she is only being sent out to Android users – no such luck for people playing the game on an Apple device.

– There are limits and it can’t be easily abused
– Gear icon in the bottom-right corner of the bottom screen is related to Mila’s Gear
– The number may indicate the number of actions you can rewind
– As previously mentioned, also use Mila’s Gear with amiibo
– Voice Actor: Tatsuhisa Suzuki
– Rigelian Emperor’s nephew
– Advocate of the nobility who prizes his social standing
– Convinced Desaix to turn traitor and instigate the Zofian coup d’etat
– Vying to be the next emperor and commands the invasion of Zofia to prove his military prowess

A new set of Quests based on the Training Tower has begun in Fire Emblem Heroes. The Quests will run until April 3, and completing each one will unlock 3 Orbs. Each Quest must also be completed with all four allies surviving. The Quests are as follows:
Fire Emblem Heroes – Inherit Skill feature added
The Inherit Skill feature has finally arrived to Fire Emblem Heroes. It allows you to transfer skills from one Hero to another.
Picking two Heroes, you can send up to three skills from one of them to the other. The Hero transferring the skills over will be removed from you army afterwards. Some skills are non-transferable, and some cannot be transferred between different types of Heroes. For example, you cannot send a character’s weapon over to another character who has a different weapon type. Also, you cannot use Heroes who are listed as your favorite as a source.
Once the skill is transferred, it is not automatically unlocked. It must be unlocked through SP, and the SP cost will be 1.5 times as much as it was for its original Hero.
If a transferred Skill can be learned by a Hero by raising their star rating, though, the cost will be the regular amount.
