Fire Emblem Heroes update releasing next week (version 5.6.0), patch notes

■ The display for skills is being updated.

We are adding a Best Skills button to the Hero skills screen. With this button, you will be able to choose to display either the Best Skills in a series (the last skills learned in a given series), or to display all of the skills in a series.

For example, if you tap Allies from the Home screen, then Ally Growth, then Inherit Skill, and finally tap Skill Search, filtering by All Skills will display the skills as follows:

However, if you chose to display only the Best Skills, it will display as follows:

・ Skills that can only be equipped by their original unit other than weapon skills will have the Best Skills of their prerequisite skills displayed as well. (Example: Astra and Regnal Astra)
・ Of the Special skills that can be inherited, prerequisite skills will not be displayed, even if the series of the given skill changes. (Example: Bonfire and Blue Flame)
・ When multiple weapon skills that can only be equipped by their original unit have been refined, only the post-refined versions of the weapon skills will be displayed. The weapon skills from which they were refined will not be displayed. However, if weapons with different names have been refined, they will be treated separately and the original weapon will be displayed.

The Best Skills button will be implemented in the following menus:

○ In the Allies Menu
・ Individual Hero Change Skills and Learn Skills menus
・ Learn Skills and Inherit Skill in the Ally Growth menu
・ Equip Skills and Edit/Equip Skill Sets in the Traits/Equipment menu
・ The My Summoner Copy Skills menu in Interact with Allies

○ Skill List Menu
・ The Skill List that is displayed when you select a character on the Home screen, Compile menu, and other menus.

■ The lineup of Limited-Time Combat Manuals is being updated

With the release of Ver. 5.6.0, players will be able to obtain Divine Codes (Ephemera 6) from events and exchange them for an updated lineup of Limited-Time Combat Manuals using the Compile Combat Manual feature.

Divine Codes (Ephemera 6) will be able to be exchanged for the following Combat Manuals:

・ The Combat Manuals that will be added in this update may be compiled until 7/27/2021 11:59 p.m.(PT)
・ Divine Codes (Ephemera

6) may be obtained from events that begin after the release of Ver. 5.6.0, while Divine Codes (Ephemera

5) may continue to be obtained from events that began before the release of Ver. 5.5.0.

Along with this change, the movies will no longer automatically play at the points they did in the story up until now.

○ The presentation of certain elements in Frontline Phalanx will be adjusted.

An issue in which you could select MS Defense Team after tapping Select by Team in the Equip Skill Sets menu even if you had locked your Mjölnir’s Strike Defense team will be addressed.

When using Auto-Battle, or during Defensive Battles in Aether Raids or the Arena, Heroes will move to positions where they will be able to get an advantageous result from battle when they attack an opponent.
