Fire Emblem Heroes - Guide, Tips, Walkthrough, Orbs, and Heroes

Our Fire Emblem Heroes guides will show how to collect your favorite heroes and defeat the Emblians.


Fire Emblem Heroes marks Nintendo's second foray into the mobile gaming world. Unlike Super Mario Run, Fire Emblem Heroes is free-to-play, which means you can either earn premium "orb" currency in the game or purchase it with real money. With our guides, we'll show you the best way to get Orbs in Fire Emblem Heroes so you can summon more heroes cheaper. We'll also show you the best way to level up your heroes and what the best skills for each of them are.

Fire Emblem Heroes Hints and Tips

  • In Fire Emblem Heroes you can get a discount when you summon more heroes at a time. Your best bet is to wait until you've saved up 20 orbs then summon five heroes straight. You'll pay the full five orbs for the first summon, but you'll only spend four Orbs for the second third and fourth and only three for the fifth. Summoning heroes in this fashion saves you five Orbs total, which you can put towards the next round of summons.
  • The Triangle of Power is an essential part of the Fire Emblem series and Fire Emblem Heroes is no different. The Triangle of Power marks the strengths and weaknesses of each hero.
  • Red weapons beat green weapons, and green weapons beat blue weapons, and blue weapons beat red weapons. This dynamic means that you have to choose a diverse group of heroes to meet the challenge of the Triangle of Power.
  • Don't forget to spend your SP points. Heroes gain SP points for leveling up, and they can be used to purchase skills for your heroes. In Fire Emblem Heroes, skills can be equipment or special moves, so if you want your characters to get stronger, you have to make sure to not only level them up but improve their skills over time.
