A hero would portray a godlike being in classic mythology and be honored as a divinity with extraordinary strength, talent, or an eternal being. Each of them, coming from a striking background, determination, and power to stand out individually as they do. In Final Fantasy: A New Empire, each Hero has a powerful storyline, unique abilities, and skill-sets that make them stand independently. Building your Heroes up is essential in the game, and this guide will provide ALL the Hero Medals data you need to know.
In this guide, we will cover:
- How to read your Hero page
- Where you can find Hero Medals
- Hero Medal Requirements for ALL Heroes
- What to read next?

Firstly, let’s go over the Hero Screen and break down what it means for us!
How to Read your Hero Screen
The Hero page is the source for all things related to your Hero! It displays everything we need to know about him or her. Let’s break down the terminology and what it signifies.
On your Hero page, the top yellow bar is your MP Bar. MP can be used for Realm Bosses, Monsters, as well as PvE Monsters.
The first number you see is the amount of MP you currently have; the second one, aside from it, means the max amount of MP your Hero can have per level. (Don’t forget to activate your Cores!)
The timer at the right of it is the time remaining that it takes for your MP to recover completely.
Make sure to check out Tylianna’s AMAZING Hero MP article to reap all the MP benefits!
Level and Experience Bar
The bottom right number, directly under your Heroes name, is your Heroes Level.
The blue bar at the bottom beneath the Hero Name and Level is your Hero Experience Bar. You can accumulate Hero Experience by hitting your enemy, Monsters, Realm Bosses, and PvE Monsters. You can also select the ‘+’ button to add additional EXP should you have any, which you can get from events, packs, etc.
If you earn all the EXP required to proceed to the next level before using your Hero Medals to unlock the next level, your Hero EXP will NOT carry over if you earn EXP from attacking and defending, hitting Realm Bosses, etc. Though, if you use your Hero EXP from inventory and accidentally use too much, don’t worry; that carries over! However, this can bite us in the butt when not having MP Carryover and we use too much, forcing us to skip Hero levels, so be cautious because level EXP fluctuates at times!
The first number shows how much experience your Hero currently has, and the other side shows how much you need to proceed to the next level.
Hero Skills and Boosts
Below the Hero Experience Bar are Skills and Hero Boosts.
The Hero Boosts delivers you a directory of all the available bonuses your Hero contributes to your Empire. Keep in mind that the stats reflect hero-specific benefits from your Hero Skills, Gear, etc.
If you wish to see your overall Empire boosts, then that can be viewed through Profile>Boost.
Hero Skills grant your Hero specific skills (based on release) that your Hero can have. In your Hero Skills, there is a Hero and a Mastery Skills tab. The Hero Skill portion is ONLY to your Hero and applies when your Hero is activated. Mastery Skills is passive and automatically implements no matter which Hero is activated.
Gear and Gems
The seven-part box on the left side of your Hero is where you would apply your Gear. The Gear you will need depends on your game style demands. Aside from overall Gear sets, don’t forget some are tuned explicitly to other areas aside from Combat, such as reducing building costs, increasing your MP/Hero damage, etc.
Once your Gear is loaded, you can embed up to four Gems PER Equipment pieces upon research completion. Similar to Gear, there are numerous Gem Sets to suit your desires.
The bottom bar on the box allows you to apply presets to quickly switch around your Gear if you face a situation where it’s needed.
Where to Find Hero Medals
“Because of the constant need for Hero Medals, they always seem to be in high demand and short supply. Buying them in packs is the fastest way to procure a large number of medals at once. If you’re looking for free Hero Medals, however, your options are a bit limited.
Occasionally, you will be able to get Hero Medals from hitting monsters, level 4 and up. The higher level of the monster, the more medals it will drop. We’ve received as much as 75 Hero Medals with the killing blow to a level 6 Kingtrice when they still roamed Eos, for example. Monsters will usually, but not always, drop the same Hero Medal type as the hero used to deliver the killing blow.
You can also find Hero Medals in all sorts of chests. Each hero has a chest specifically for their Hero Medals. Hero Medals can also be obtained from Invader Chests won during RvR, the locked Secret and Chocobo Chests, and various special event chests.”

Disclaimer – Please keep in mind:
- Some Hero Charts will be missing due to sever one’s release containing massive jump in instant levels.
- If there is no Hero Medal Chart and you’d like to fill in the gaps, feel free! It would be a tremendous help to the community and very appreciative. Make sure to forward it to one of the admins to add it to the Hub rooms and feature it in this guide!
- The newer servers have had some Medal Requirement differences with the older Hero releases.
