Chain Challenge

From Fire Emblem Wiki, your source on Fire Emblem information. By fans, for fans.

Chain Challenge (Japanese: 連戦トライアル Series of Battles Trial) is a game mode in Fire Emblem Heroes. Chain Challenge allows players to challenge difficult teams within narrative chapters' maps consecutively without being refreshed in between. Depending on the challenge, players are allowed to use between one and three teams per challenge, with three to ten maps being fought along the way. Players can win Hero Feathers for clearing a challenge on Normal and Hard difficulties, and Orbs for clearing a challenge on Lunatic difficulty.

Most chapters allow their Chain Challenges to be challenged singly or in pairs; chapter pairs are fixed and not customizable (for example, a player cannot choose to Chain Challenge Chapters 2 and 3 consecutively, as those two chapters are part of different pairs). Because of the rigidity of the paired chapter challenges, chapters whose challenges can be taken on in pairs tend to only become available to the mode once both chapters in question are added to the game. If a chapter becomes available for a Chain Challenge on its own, it can only be taken on singly; to date, this quirk applies to only four chapters, all of which are the thirteenth chapter of a main story Book.
