Fire Emblem Heroes guide to heroes, battles and hero rotations

From fighting to recruiting

From Fire Emblem Heroes' battle menu, access the special maps section to find limited-time battles that allow you to recruit powerful new allies.

When you attempt a hero battle, you will spend stamina, like usual. However, there's an additional restriction in place: you can't let any of your own team members fall in battle. Fortunately, you can choose the difficulty setting of the battle, which gives you a better chance of survival. However, the hero that you defeat and thus recruit will be slightly less powerful than the one you defeat. For instance, if you defeat a five-star Felicia, you will recruit Felicia's four-star version.

Recruiting heroes

Each day, you can battle and recruit a different hero. The current rotation is as follows:

  1. Sophia
  2. Virion
  3. Hana
  4. Subaki
  5. Donnel
  6. Lissa
  7. Gunter
  8. Cecilia
  9. Felicia
  10. Wrys
  11. Olivia
  12. Stahl

When the list reaches the end of its rotation, it starts over from the top. This lets you anticipate who you might face in a few days, so that you can level up characters and prepare a party that is able to topple a desired opponent.
