Fire Emblem Heroes update out now (version 5.3.0), full details

Posted on March 3, 2021 by (@NE_Brian) in Mobile, News

Nintendo and Intelligent Systems have started distribution of version 5.3.0 for Fire Emblem Heroes. It includes Divine Codes (Part 2), updates to Tempest Trials+ and Aether Raids, and much more.

Below are the full update details:

■ Divine Codes (Part 2) have been added

New Divine Codes that can be used to compile Normal Combat Manuals, Divine Codes (Part 2), are now available! Mjölnir’s Strike and other events from which Divine Codes can be obtained will, after the update, switch from Divine Codes (Part 1) to Divine Codes (Part 2).

Note: The Divine Codes available as Interval Rewards from Resonant Battles will switch with the season starting after the update, which is scheduled from 3/8/2021 11:00 p.m.(PT) to 3/15/2021 3:59 p.m.(PT)

Also, along with the addition of Divine Codes (Part 2), there is a new Normal 2 category added to the Compile menu. You will be able to compile Combat Manuals for Heroes that were not previously available as part of the Normal 1 category, including some Heroes from the Fire Emblem: Three Houses game, so please check out the lineup of Heroes in the new category!

Please note that you will still be able to compile Normal 1 Combat Manuals after the update. Normal 1 Combat Manuals are generally compiled with Divine Codes (Part 1), but if you don’t have enough Divine Codes (Part 1), you can supplement them with Divine Codes (Part 2).

Example: If you make a Normal 1 Combat Manual that requires 1,600 Divine Codes and you have 300 Divine Codes (Part 1) and 2,700 Divine Codes (Part 2), the Divine Codes (Part 1) will be prioritized and the remaining 1,300 Divine Codes will be taken from your supply of Divine Codes (Part 2).


■ Tempest Trials+ has been updated

・ Starting with the first event after the 5.3.0 update, Target Score will be implemented.

Five levels of Target Scores have been set, and upon reaching each level for the first time, you will receive a bonus to your Cumulative Score.

・ You can now check scores, rewards, and more on the stage select screen.

You can check your current Cumulative Score, the next Cumulative Score Reward, and how many points remain between those two numbers, all from the stage select screen. Also, your High Score and the next Target Score is displayed as well.


■ Aether Raids has been updated

○ Tier 39 will be added.

Beginning with the season starting from 3/8/2021 11:00 p.m.(PT) to 3/15/2021 3:59 p.m.(PT), which will begin after the update, Tier 39 will be added. If you finish the season in Tiers 38-39, you will begin the following season at Tier 31.

○ The Vault of Heaven has been updated.

Your class will change from Exos to Ásgarðr upon reaching the Vault of Heaven. Also, the background for Aether Raids will become a special Vault of Heaven background. Go see the view from the Heavens with your own eyes!

■ The lineup of Limited-Time Combat Manuals has been updated
