The Blazing Shadows event has begun in Fire Emblem: Heroes! 6 new characters from Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade has been added to the game: Karel: Sword Demon, Ninian: Oracle of Destiny, Rebecca: Wildflower, Jaffar: Angel of Death, Priscilla: Delicate Princess, and Lucius: The Light.
A new summoning focus, Blazing Shadows, is available so that players have increased odds of summoning the new characters at 5 stars. The Blazing Shadows summoning focus will run until March 30th at 3 am EST. The characters will continue to be available after the summoning focus concludes but will no longer only be found as 5 stars. Be sure to take advantage of this summoning focus if you wish to obtain one of the new characters.
Paralogue 3: Blazing Shadows has been added to the Story Maps. It features 3 maps available on Normal, Hard, and Lunatic difficulties, similar to previous paralogues. Corresponding quests are available for a limited time until March 30th at 3 am EST (same as the summoning focus). They revolve around clearing Paralogue 3 with certain types of units on your squad, and therefore, shouldn’t prove to be too difficult to complete.
