Orbs are an item and gacha currency in Fire Emblem Heroes.


Orbs are the primary source of player income in game. Its main usage is for the Summoner to summon heroes from other worlds with their power. Orbs can be spent on rolls to draw random Fire Emblem heroes and add them to the player's roster. Orbs can also be spent to increase the castle level, which in turn increases the amount of experience gained after a unit wins a battle. If the player loses a battle and the player lacks a Light's Blessing, an orb may be spent to serve the same function as a Light's Blessing.

Orbs can be earned in a multitude of ways. Players can earn an Orb by clearing a map for the first time (3 for a Xenologue), ranking in the Arena, clearing a Quest with it as a reward, reaching certain point totals for Tempest Trials, as an occasional reward for retweet goals, through occasional daily log-in bonus, or purchasing with real money.

Summoning HeroesEdit


Orbs have four types of color which determine the types of heroes summoned:

Orb red (Red) FEH Sword Sword FEH Fire Tome Red Magic FEH Fire Breath Red Breath
Orb blue (Blue) FEH Lance Lance FEH Thunder Tome Blue Magic FEH Thunder Breath Blue Breath
Orb green (Green) FEH Axe Axe FEH Wind Tome Green Magic FEH Wind Breath Green Breath
Orb grey (Colorless) FEH Bow Bow FEH Dagger Dagger FEH Staff Staff


In a summoning session, players are able to summon up to five heroes. The costs of orbs required during the session are:

  • Five for the first summon
  • Four for the second to fourth summons
  • Three for the last summon
