Fire Emblem Heroes update version 7.9.0 patch notes
■ New skills are being added for some Mythic Heroes
Of the Heroes that appear in Legendary & Mythic Hero Remixes, Mirabilis: Daydream and Hel: Death Sovereign are gaining new skills.
○ New skills
・ Assist Skill
Grants another action to target ally. Grants Atk+6 and “neutralizes foe’s bonuses during combat” to target ally and allies within 2 spaces of target ally (excluding unit) for 1 turn. Inflicts Atk-6 on nearest foes within 5 spaces of target ally and any foe within 2 spaces of those foes through their next actions. (Cannot target an
ally with Sing or Dance. This skill treated as Sing or Dance.) This skill can only be equipped by its original unit.
・ B Skill
Chill Def/Res 3
At start of turn, inflicts Def/Res-6 on foe on the enemy team with the highest Def+Res total and foes within 2 spaces of that foe through their next actions.
・ A Skill
Unit can counterattack regardless of foe’s range. At start of combat, if unit’s HP ≥ 25%, grants Spd+5 during combat, but after combat, if unit attacked, deals 5 damage to unit.
・ C Skill
For each foe within 4 spaces of unit, unit can move to any of the nearest spaces adjacent to that foe (unless space is impassible terrain). Inflicts Atk/Spd/Def/Res-5 on foes within 2 spaces of unit during combat. If unit’s Spd > foe’s Spd, neutralizes effects that guarantee foe’s follow-up attacks and effects that prevent unit’s follow-up attacks during combat. This skill can only be equipped by its original unit.
