The Tempest.

Tempest Trials (Japanese: 戦渦の連戦 Series of Battles of the Chaos of War) are a game mode in Fire Emblem Heroes. During Tempest Trials, players earn points in order to earn rewards, which come in a variety of forms.

Plot

Main article: Tempest Trials/Script

Due to the nature of the game, in which new content is steadily added on a consistent basis, new tempest trials may be added to the game in any given update, hence this synopsis may be rendered incomplete at any given time.

Dark Clouds over Awakening

The first time the Tempest descends on Askr, a masked man arrives with it, seeking to aid against the chaos caused by the Tempest. A Tempest is a fierce colliding of different worlds, throwing the land and people on it into chaos. The Tempest must be journey through to be calmed, though there are many confused foes along the way. The final opponent of the first Tempest was Veronica.

Overview

The original incarnation of the Tempest Trials events typically lasted two weeks. The goal is for the player to accumulate points through many battles to redeem rewards such as Orbs, Hero Feathers, Sacred Seals, and even reward characters. The highest rewarded amount of points for the typical length Tempest Trial during the original format is 99,999.

At the start of each day a Tempest Trial players receive a multiplier for a limited number of runs, allowing players to get a boosted start on gaining points each day.

Each attempt at a Tempest Trial will pit players against four randomized characters on maps taken from a certain selection of the game's story maps; some maps may draw their characters from specific pools based on certain properties; this can last from two to six battles, depending on difficulty and certain other attributes available for the player to choose. The final map of a sequence is a fixed map with a fixed boss and four random opponents drawn from character pools based on weapon and movement types.

Tempest Trials Mini

A new Tempest Trial variant was introduced in September 2017, lasting only a week, half the time of normal Tempest Trials. The rewards points pool only goes up to 50,000, approximately half of a normal Tempest Trial. The first Tempest Trial Mini, To Die on the Battlefield introduced new Sacred Seals and allowed for players to obtain the previously run Masked Marth character as well as past Sacred Seals, like Quickened Pulse.

Tempest Trials+

Starting on April 21, 2018, the Tempest Trials received a format overhaul, with the new format being called Tempest Trials+. The revamped format takes elements from both the original format of the full-fledged Tempest Trials as well as the smaller variant Tempest Trials Mini; the duration of a Tempest Trials+ is typically 10 days (the January 2020 edition, "Mid-fest Digest", is an exception to this, lasting 11 days), which falls between the two earlier formats, while the reward structure for the new format is based on the Tempest Trials Mini.

Bonus Units

Each Tempest Trial has sets of bonus units, these units typically follow a theme within the Tempest Trial; newly released related characters often provide the larger bonus.

Tempest Trials

From the Old French tempeste and the Latin tempestas, meaning; "season, weather, storm". A "Tempest" is a type of violent windy storm.

Japanese

戦渦の連戦

Roughly "Series of Battles of the Chaos of War". "Chaos of War" (戦渦) can also be translated literally as "war vortex", which is presumably where the English version got "tempest" from.
