New weapons are going to be added in the next big update for the game, with Lilina getting Forblaze, while Fir and Karel can choose to wield the Nameless Blade. Forblaze has 14 Might and inflicts Res –7 on the enemy with the highest Res, while Nameless Blade is a 16 Might Sword that reduces special cooldown by 1. Both weapons will be available in the Weapon Refinery.

Roy’s Binding Blade and Lloyd’s Regal Blade are being added to the Weapon Refinery as well. The Binding Blade gets effectiveness against Dragon Breath-type units, and Def/Res +4 during enemy phase. With weapon refining, the Binding Blade can get a unique Quick Riposte effect when Roy is above 50% HP.

 

The Regal Blade has a new effect of granting Atk/Spd +3 when the enemy is at 100% HP, and furthermore can support infantry magic users within two spaces with +3 to all stats during combat.

 

Tempest Trials+:

  • All bonus allies are now 40%, instead of being split between 40% and 20%
