This post contains information about the most effective methods for Hero building in the game Fire Emblem Heroes (FEH). A lot of useful information pertaining to Hero building can be found here, so please read on.
Level Raising is something that absolutely cannot be avoided when building your Heroes. There are two ways to level up a character.
In FEH, you gain EXP when an actions occurs in combat. The actions that allow you to gain EXP are as follows:
|Action||Amount of EXP Gained|
|Defeating a higher level unit||Large|
|Attacking a higher level unit||Small|
|Defeating a lower level unit||Medium|
|Attacking a lower level unit||Very Small|
|Healing an Ally with an Assist||Very Small|
|Using a Rally Assist||None|
|Using a Movement Assist||None|
|Using a Refresher Assist||None|
When character building, we recommend that you use the Training Tower for leveling up. It is possible to gain much more EXP from the Training Tower than it is from Story Mode, Arena Duels, or any other battles.
EXP will increase for 1 to 4 star Heroes when character building. Battling worry-free is a shortcut to character growth, even for Heroes with low rarity.
It is possible to level up a Hero by using shards and crystals. Shards and Crystals can be obtained as a reward for clearing a level of the Training Tower for the first time, as well as in Quests & Missions. First time clear rewards reset each day, so don't forget to challenge them daily.
Using shards and crystals to level up means that you do not have to repeat battles, making them extremely convenient.
They are an indispensable item when it comes to leveling up units quicky.
While this method of leveling up is very quick and easy, raising a unit up to level 40 by this method will grant them very few Skill Points
Since you will gain SP each time you defeat an enemy and level up in a repeated battle, this method of repeating battles is also an option. Use Shard and Crystals systematically.
Another essential component to character building is Skill Inheritance. Inherit Skill is a method of sacrificing one hero to pass on their compatible skills to another Hero.
Since there is quite a lot of freedom when it comes to Skill Inheritance, the skills you should learn depend on the characters you are using and the team that you wish to create. Check out the article below to learn what are the most powerful skills that can be inherited.
A lot of SP (Skill Points) is needed to inherit skills. It is possible to gain SP through battling as well as using Merge Allies, but the most efficient method is to clear stages in the Training Tower. For more details about how to efficiently gain SP, see the article below.
When building a Hero, it is possible to increase their ★ rating by using Unlock Potential.
You will need a large amount of Hero Feathers for Unlock Potential. Hero Feathers are a valuable item, and you mainly attain them through the campaign, as well as through Quests & Missions.
|Send Home Heroes||Medium|
|Reward from Quests||Medium to Large|
|Reward from Arena Duels||Large|
|Gaining Hero Merit||Medium|
|Greetings at the Home Screen||Very Small|
|Events and Campaign||Medium to Large|
Badges and Great Badges used for Unlock Potential are obtained as a reward for clearing stages in the Training Tower. Since they can be gained while leveling up your Heroes in the Training Tower, there is no need to go out of your way to collect them.
Here we will introduce the final stage of Hero building, which is called Merge Allies.
Merge Allies can be used when you have two or more of the same Hero.
We recommend that you use Merge Allies after you have brought the Hero that you wish to merge to level 40 and have used up all of their SP.
By using a Hero who meets those conditions as a source ally to enhance a Hero from level 1, it is possible to gain a huge amount of SP.
By maxing out a 4★ Hero with Merge Allies, the Hero will have even higher stats than an unmerged 5★ Hero. If you are unsure of whether you should use Unlock Potential, or instead use Merge Allies to bring a Hero to +10 merges, please see the following article.
Another part of Hero building found within FEH is the Summoner Support System.
Summoner Support is a way that one of your Heroes can increase their stats by forming a bond with you, the Summoner. Since you can only form a bond with just one Hero, this method is only for increasing the stats of your favortite Hero.
There are four Support Ranks (C < B < A < S), and a higher Support Rank results in higher stats. Upon reaching Rank S, the Hero's ordinary HP will increase by +5, and all other stats increase by +2, giving your Hero a considerable benefit.
For more information on Summoner Support and how to increase your Support Rank, see the following article.
In addition to Summoner Support, a similar stat raising system from the Fire Emblem Series known as Ally Support is also present in FEH. By creating a bond between two Heroes, both Heroes will gain a stat boost when they are within two spaces of each other. Please see the following article if you would like to know more about Ally Support and recommended partnerships.
