Fire Emblem Heroes: How To Get Lots of Free Orbs | Events & Rewards

On iOS & Android: Learn how to get free Orbs and unlock Heroes (or increase your XP) with these Orb give-away events, bonuses, and reward methods.

Orbs are the currency of Fire Emblem Heroes, and most F2P fans don’t bother spending a single red cent on premium Orb packs — that’s why we’re all about free Orbs here. You can earn a slow-but-steady supply of Orbs in Fire Emblem Heroes for completing maps, login bonuses, and special events. We’ll keep a running tally of all the Orb unlock methods below, so check back later if you missed an event. Don’t worry, there will be more!

So, what do Orbs even do? You can spend Orbs a couple of ways, but mostly you’ll be using Orbs to upgrade your Castle / Barracks and Summon new randomly-dropped Heroes. Like other Gacha games, you drop Orbs into the slots and pull a random little character. Depending on the rarity, those Heroes might be incredibly powerful (or pathetically) weak. It’s all about the luck of the draw.
