Summoner Duels Fire Emblem Heroes FEH

This is a guide on the Summoner Duels game mode for Fire Emblem Heroes (FEH). To know how this game mode works, how to score high, and the rewards, read on!

What is Summoner Duels?

Summoner Duels is a game mode available in Coliseum. It is a real-time PvP game mode where players engage in timed battle using five heroes, one of which is designated as captain.

The captain unit can equip certain Captain Skills to aid the player during combat.

Two variations of the mode, Summoner Duels R and Summoner Duels S, are released as events from time to time.

  • Summoner Duels R leave all team choices to each individual player.
  • Summoner Duels S require players to build four teams and give their opponents two team bans to apply prior to the match starting.

Summoner Duels Guide

Teambuilding and Restrictions

Each Summoner Duels team consists of five heroes. The first hero slot is designated as the team captain, and can equip Captain Skills for the team's benefit.

There are a few restrictions during teambuilding:

  • Duplicate heroes are not allowed.
  • Refresher skills (such as Sing, Dance, or higher tier skills like Gentle Dream and Gray Waves) are limited to one per team.
  • Units with Savior skills equipped (such as D/R Near Save 3 and D/R Far Save 3) are limited to one per team.
  • Only three Captain Skills are available to choose from each week.

There are also matchmaking settings that can be toggled by the player. At present, there are only two settings:

  • No restrictions.
  • Book III and prior. (Only units that were introduced into the game from books I to III are allowed. Skills that are released later, but inherited onto these units are allowed.)

Matchmaking Options

Favor Battles

Favor Battles is the default matchmaking option in Summoner Duels. It is the only mode that impacts the player's Favor Level, which leads to rewards.

Favor Battles have a set ruleset at all times. The ruleset is:

  • Ignores custom rules.
  • 30 second time limit per action.
  • Battles on only one map for the entire season.
  • Merge counts and supports are active.

Free Duel

Free Duel allows players to battle with custom rules and maps. However, this mode does not impact the player's Favor Level and thus, does not lead to rewards.

The custom rules available are:

  • Time Limit: 30 seconds, 60 seconds, Off, or Random.
  • Map: Random, Enclosed Ruins, Mountain Pass, Bridges, Shifting Sands, or Desert Trees.
  • Lv.40, No Support: Off, On, or Random. (If active, ignores merge counts and supports on all units.)

Practice Duel

Practice Duels are simply Free Duels but against AI-controlled enemies. They also do not impact Favor Level.

Summoner Duels R

Summoner Duels R is an event mode that has a start and end date. During this event, each player can play matches until they have accumulated 3 losses for the week, or 4 losses if their team includes at least one of three bonus units designated for that week.

Favor Battles settings are active in Summoner Duels R.

Additionally, the following changes are applied during Summoner Duels R:

  • Three bonus allies are available for the week. These units can be Legendary or Mythic Heroes.
  • Only three Captain Skills are available to choose from each week.

We suggest running at least one bonus unit in order to extend your run as long as possible.

Summoner Duels S

Summoner Duels S is similar to Summoner Duels R, except you have to create four teams with no overlapping heroes.

Prior to the start of the match, each player see all of his/her foe's teams and can ban two out of the four teams that the opposing player has fielded.

Each player then selects a team that hasn't been banned and fields that team for the current match.
