If you’ve been playing Fire Emblem Heroes, you likely know about the purpose of hero feathers. This item can be used to increase the star ranking of a hero, allowing them to get boosted stats and special abilities. Today, Nintendo of America held a campaign to see if they could get 1 million retweets on a tweet about Fire Emblem Heroes. They achieved their goal, and so sometime in the near future, we can expect to receive 10,000 free hero feathers.
These items will be made available to all those currently playing the game at some point soon. Heroes in Fire Emblem Heroes are summoned using orbs, and orbs are able to be earned under specific circumstances. Players have the option to purchase orbs, but when using them to summon heroes results in three star warriors, it can be a bit frustrating. That’s why the ability to increase their rank with these hero feathers is such a positive addition to the game.
If you’re a fan of the original series especially, you may find it difficult to turn your nose up at a favorite hero because their rank is too low. This is an opportunity to customize your party in a way that appeals to the sensibilities of the old fan.
