• Alfonse, what do you think I should go for first when I’m learning new skills?

  • Well, improving on your strengths never hurts, but there’s a lot to be said for skills that cover for your weaknesses too. I know a few Heroes who could teach you some skills that would be perfect for you.

  • That would be great! I’d love to be a real Hero in my own right one day—just like you!

  • Ha ha! Well, I wouldn’t have made it far without my courageous sister, would I? And it does seem that I have my work cut out for me if I want to keep up with you!

  • Oh, Alfonse! Ha ha ha!

  • (It’s nice to see siblings get along, but this is just weird.)

Recommended Weapon Skills

Raven tomes are great for getting the advantage over colorless foes, while Killer and Slaying weapon skills are very useful for their ability to reduce the cooldown of Special Skills. Henry, Robin, and Cecilia all have Raven tomes and are relatively common summons, so it might be a good idea to unlock those Heroes’ potential and take them to 5★ rarity. Heroes who have Killing Edge, Killer Lance, or Killer Axe can upgrade to improved versions with a + mark, or have them refined into the “Slaying” versions.

5★ Robin: High Deliverer


5★ Cecilia: Etrurian General

Slaying Edge+

5★ Lon’qu: Solitary Blade

Slaying Lance+

5★ Peri: Playful Slayer

Slaying Axe+

5★ Hawkeye: Desert Guardian

Recommended Assist Skills

Draw Back and Reposition are very versatile, making them two of the most frequently used Assist Skills. You can use these skills to improve the mobility of your allies or to move an ally who’s finished their turn out of harm’s way.

Draw Back

3★ Mae: Bundle of Energy

3★ Sully: Crimson Knight


3★ Selena: Cutting Wit

3★ Barst: The Hatchet

Recommended Special Skills

Moonbow and Glimmer are powerful, have short cooldowns, and don’t take much SP to learn, making them readily available to improve your fighting strength without too much of a time investment. Meanwhile, Aether is a great choice for your strongest allies. Not only does it ignore 50% of the enemy’s Def and Res, but it also heals the user for 50% of the damage dealt.
