Heroes with the Infantry Pulse skill are featured as part of a 5★ summoning focus At the start of turn 1, a Hero with Infantry Pulse grants Special cooldown count-1 to all infantry allies on their team whose HP is less than theirs. This is useful for stacking up cooldown points for using major abilities and can turn the tide of battle. As always, your first summon on a new banner won’t cost any orbs, so be sure to log in to take advantage of a free unit.
