Fire Emblem Heroes update out now (version 5.7.0), patch notes

Posted on July 5, 2021 by (@NE_Brian) in Mobile, News

Fire Emblem Heroes

Fire Emblem Heroes has been updated on both iOS and Android. Version 5.7.0 is now available.

Highlights of the update include a team skill lock feature, new skills for some Legendary Heroes, updated lineup of Limited-Time Combat Manuals, and new weapon skills/weapons to refine. We have the full patch notes below.

■ A team skill lock feature has been added.

We have added a feature that allows you to lock the skills of Heroes, including Sacred Seals, on a team by team basis. When you deploy a team that includes Heroes whose skills have been locked, the Heroes will always start the battle with the skills they had equipped when the team was locked, even if you change which skills the individual Heroes have equipped before the battle begins.

Please note that you will not be able to change the skills of Heroes in skill-locked teams from the Hero’s profile screen. Also, you will not be able to switch Heroes in and out of teams that have their skills locked. When the skill lock is turned off, all Heroes in the team will have their latest skills equipped.

Unlike Aether Raids, Mjölnir’s Strike, and other Defensive Team lock features, the statuses of Heroes other than their skills will not be locked. Changing a Hero’s blessing or traits, or Merging an ally with a Hero in a skill-locked team will be reflected on the Hero in the skill-locked team. When you enhance a Sacred Seal, that will be reflected on the Hero in the skill-locked team as well.

Also, if you remove a Hero in a skill-locked team from your main barracks, whether by sending the Hero home, using them in a skill inheritance, or moving them to a reserve barracks, they will be removed from the skill-locked team.

The skill lock feature can be used on the following edit teams screens.

・ The normal Edit Team screen
・ The Edit Reserve Team screen
・ The Edit Brigades screen
・ The Form Raiding Party screen in Aether Raids
・ The Edit Team screen during multi-map battles, as well as the Edit Reserve Team screen that can be displayed during those battles.

Note: It is possible to use skill lock on the Edit Brigades screen; however, your friends’ Heroes cannot be locked. If you update your friend, your friend’s Hero’s most up-to-date status will be reflected.

Skill lock is a feature that allows you to lock your Heroes’ skills when they are deployed on a map. Their latest skills will be equipped when they are not deployed on a map, such as on results screens, the Home screen, etc.
