One of the problems with Fire Emblem Heroes are obtaining feathers. Feathers are necessary to upgrade the star rank of your units, the higher the rank, the more feathers will cost. Ranking up a 4 star unit to a 5 star unit costs 20,000 feathers which is an absurd amount only because of how scarce acquiring them are. There are three ways to getting feathers:
1. Tap on one of your units and your friends unit with hearts on them to get a total of 15 feathers once a day. Barely scratches the 20,000 requirement.
2. Go to “Send Home” to delete unwanted units. Depending their star rank will determine how many feathers you get in return. A 5 star unit gives 1000. Their level doesn’t matter which is a missed opportunity to add more to do in this game. Imagine grinding a low star unit to lv40 to get a good amount of feathers as compensation when you send them home. Worth it.
3. Lastly, the arena gets you a couple thousand feathers, depending your points which is great but you are only rewarded once a week. Slowly but surely I suppose.
Recently, Nintendo’s official twitter announced an event to retweet 10,000 times to get 10,000 feathers! If they keep doing these kinds of events then that wold be wonderful.
