Fire Emblem Heroes update announced (version 6.1.0), patch notes
Intelligent Systems has announced that a new update is headed to Fire Emblem Heroes next week. The new update will include new skills, events, and more. Here are the full patch notes:
The Hall of Forms is being updated
Two skills each will be offered for the A, B, and C skill slots on infernal difficulty maps in the Hall of Forms (floors 13 and up). Also, the skills that appear there will only be exclusive skills or skills that cost 240 SP or more.
Note: These updates will be applied to Hall of Forms events that begin after the release of Ver. 6.1.0. Please keep in mind that they will not be applied to the Hall of Forms event that is currently active.
■ The Filter feature is being updated
We will be adding a Skill Search to the Filter feature, making it easier to search for Heroes by skills on the Edit Teams or Inherit Skill screens.
■ New Memento Events are being added to Heroes Journey
○ New Memento Events are being added!
■ New skills are being added for some Legendary Heroes
Of the Heroes that appear in Legendary Hero Remixes, Eirika: Graceful Resolve and Lucina: Glorious Archer are gaining new skills.
○ New skills
・ A Skill
Atk/Spd Solo 4
If unit is not adjacent to an ally, grants
Atk/Spd+7 during combat.
・ B Skill
Lunar Brace II
Neutralizes effects that guarantee foe’s
follow-up attacks and effects that prevent
unit’s follow-up attacks during combat.
Deals damage = 15% of foe’s Def.
After an attack, Assist skill, or structure
destruction, unit can move ２ space(s).
(Unit moves according to movement type. Once
per turn. Cannot attack or assist. Only highest
value applied. Does not stack. After moving,
if a skill that grants another action would be
triggered (like with Galeforce), Canto will
trigger after the granted action. Unit’s base
movement has no effect on movement granted.
Cannot warp (using skills like Wings of Mercy)
a distance greater than ２ space(s).)
This skill can only be equipped by its original unit.
・ Assist Skill
Future Vision II
Unit and target ally swap spaces. Inflicts
Atk/Def-7 on nearest foes within 4 spaces
of both unit and target through their next
actions. Grants another action to unit.
(Additional action granted once per turn only.)
This skill can only be equipped by its original unit.
・ A Skill
Swift Sparrow 3
If unit initiates combat, grants Atk+6, Spd+7
Eirika: Graceful Resolve and Lucina: Glorious Archer will be getting new weapon skills to refine at the same time, so be sure to check the section of this notification labeled “New weapon skills and weapons to refine are being added” in conjunction with this section.
■ The lineup of Limited-Time Combat Manuals is being updated
With the release of Ver. 6.1.0, players will be able to obtain Divine Codes (Ephemera 1) from events and exchange them from an updated lineup of Limited-Time Combat Manuals using the Compile Combat Manual feature.
Divine Codes (Ephemera 1) will be able to be exchanged for the following Combat Manuals:

■ Summoner Duels is being updated.
○ We will improve the controls when Double Tap to Wait is off.
Currently, Double Tap to Wait is always on in Summoner Duels, even if you have it turned off in the game’s settings. In order to help prevent players from unintentionally ending turns early, we will revise it so when Double Tap to Wait is turned off in Summoner Duels, and you have Heroes who can still make actions or are affected by Canto, you will need to tap three times to wait.
Regarding Canto, this will be applied in situations outside of Summoner Duels as well.
Note: The game’s behavior when Double Tap to Wait is turned on will be unchanged by the update.
○ We will improve a portion of the game’s behavior when a communications error occurs.
Currently, when a communication error occurs on your end after an opponent concedes, the game will prioritize the communications error, resulting in a loss for you. We will improve the system so that even if a communication error occurs on your end after your opponent concedes, the match will count as a victory for you.
■ Aether Raids is being updated
○ Some structures will have their level cap increased.
・ Escape Ladder (O): up to level 7
You can return all of a lost battle’s Aether cost up to 7 times by placing a Level 7 Escape Ladder. Be sure to put this structure to good use!
○ Aether Resort is being updated.
・ Two new songs are being added to the Concert Hall: “Eyes of Rage” from the Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn game and “Bound by Fate (Sakura and Elise)” from the Fire Emblem Fates games.
■ Mjölnir’s Strike is being updated
○ A mechanism will have its level cap increased.
・ Deluge Fountain: up to level 5
■ Additional Heroes via Heroic Grails
The following Heroes will be available to summon using Heroic Grails:
・ Shamir: Lone-Moon Ninja
