This follows yesterday's update for Fire Emblem Heroes on Android and iOS. That release brought the game to 1.2.0, with the following changes.

  • Maximum stamina raised from 50 to 99.
  • Added feature that allows you to swap the positions of Heroes at the start of battle.
  • Adjusted the amount of EXP gained in battle. Heroes with lower rarities (in stars) will receive more EXP from battle.
