Aether Resort is a gameplay feature in Fire Emblem Heroes.
Aether is a side feature of Aether Raids which allows players create a facility that allows Heroes to enjoy. Players are allowed to freely choose to allow random units to appear each time they enter the resort or select the units that appear. The heroes freely wander the resort and can interact with each other in various ways.
Aether Resort has its own unique currency, Aether R&R points, which can be expended to purchase Aether Resort structures and items to be placed in the structures. Aether R&R points also can be used to allow more units to appear in the Resort and allow more structures to be placed. Players are granted 10 Aether R&R Points each day. Players are also awarded 60 points when the Aether Raid/Arena season has reset for the week. Expending Aether R&R points also awards Aether Stones with a 10:1 ratio for the exchange. Players can also expend 3 Orbs to double the Aether R&R Point yield for a week.
The player is allowed to bring any three Heroes in their army to the Resort by default, but can be upgraded to bring up to seven currently. Players can place up to fourteen structures including Aether Raids items by default, but can be upgraded to place more.
There are four main structures that allow a variety of extra features for the Heroes to enjoy. These can be entered by tapping them. Players may also drag and drop Heroes on the map to appear in the structures mandatorily.
