Three Houses: Second Famitsu Article (Skills, Crests, Battalions and Academy)

This week’s challenge of Famitsu simply got here out not way back, though their web site already posted their Three Homes function a number of hours in the past. There’s an absolute truckload of latest gameplay info, so ensure you’re snug and ready for a really lengthy learn!

Earlier than we go in, I like to recommend learning the contents of the earlier Famitsu article, in case you haven’t accomplished so already.

Historical past of the Crests

Some characters bear “crests” handed down by their ancestors. The crests play a serious position in influencing one’s social standing; for instance, the Adrestian Empire’s imperial throne has been handed down for generations to these with the crest of Seiros. As well as, crests might unlock skills resembling superior bodily or magical potential.

The protagonist possesses a crest, proven within the screenshot above. This similar crest seems in numerous locations, like on Sothis’s garments, the king with the golden blade within the first trailer, and so forth. Nevertheless, the identify and properties of this crest are an entire thriller. In truth, it’s even referred to as “Crest of ???” within the recreation.

Nevertheless, there may be a clue about its origins later…

Expertise and Crests

Expertise are an necessary a part of a personality’s character and progress. When set, they’ve a specific impact throughout battle. There are three forms of expertise.

  • Private expertise: Innate expertise that every character has at first. Can’t be eliminated and there’s just one for every character.
  • Class expertise: Innate expertise for every class. It’s granted to that class solely and disappear as soon as you modify class.
  • Professor expertise: These are discovered expertise based on the character’s professor ranges (in Sword, Lance, Axe, Authority, and so on.). In contrast to class expertise, they are often customised and are unbiased of sophistication.

Above we will see Hubert as a Darkish Mage with the next expertise.

  • Private: Strategist
  • Class: Miasma△ (from Echoes), Hex (from Awakening)
  • Professor: Purpose Degree 2, Authority Degree 1, Rally Magic (additionally from Awakening), Bow Degree 1

Simply in case, yow will discover some further details about Professor Expertise by way of the earlier Famitsu article (seek for “Shut Counter”).

Under is an inventory of some characters’ private expertise and, if relevant, crests.


  • Private: Instructor’s Steerage – Boosts consumer and adjoining ally’s expertise achieve by 1.2.
  • Crest: Crest of ??? – A mysterious crest of unknown origins.


  • Private: Imperial Bloodline – Boosts consumer’s expertise achieve by 1.2.
  • Crest: Minor Crest of Seiros – A minor crest stated to have belonged to the Divine Seiros.


  • Private: Royal Bloodline – Boosts consumer’s expertise achieve by 1.2.
  • Crest: Minor Crest of Blaiddyd – A minor crest stated to have belonged to Blaiddyd of Fódlan’s Ten Greats.


  • Private: Alliance Bloodline – Boosts consumer’s expertise achieve by 1.2.
  • Crest: Minor Crest of Riegan – A minor crest stated to have belonged to Riegan of Fódlan’s Ten Greats.


  • Private: Strategist – Boosts Gambit May by 5.


  • Private: Songstress – Initially of every flip, restores adjoining allies’ HP by 10%.


  • Private: Liege’s Defend – If consumer waits with out appearing, Defence +four for one flip.


A sarcastic man who affectionately calls his childhood buddy Dimitri a “boar”. He educated to hone his swordsmanship.

  • Private: Solitary Wolf – When a battalion is just not deployed or when battalion well being is zero, injury dealt +5
  • Crest: Crest of Fraldarius – A crest stated to have belonged to Fraldarius of Fódlan’s Ten Greats.


  • Private: Prestigious Noble – When a battalion is deployed, injury dealt +2
  • Crest: Minor Crest of Gloucester – A minor crest stated to have belonged to Gloucester of Fódlan’s Ten Greats.


The one daughter from a duke’s household; she’s a woman who’s good at appearing cute. She adores trendy and glamorous issues.

  • Private: Plead – When getting into battle with an adjoining male ally, injury dealt +three
  • Crest: Minor Crest of Goneril – A minor crest stated to have belonged to Goneril of Fódlan’s Ten Greats.

The Ten Greats look like the legendary heroes from Fódlan’s previous. They have been first talked about within the description of the Noble class. Presumably there are ten of them; we presently know of 5: Blaiddyd, Riegan, Fraldarius, Gloucester and Goneril.

Because it occurs, these 5 names additionally match with locations on the world map. It’s attainable that Gautier (who’s in all probability Sylvain’s ancestor) could also be one other of the Ten Greats, since there’s a “Crest Stone of Gautier” featured within the February trailer and Gautier is a location on the map.

Thus far, the Ten Greats and Seiros solely account for 11 of the 21 crests proven on the Goddess’s mural. I’m wondering the place the remaining 10 crests got here from?

The crests are additionally divided into minor and commonplace varieties. Everyone listed with a crest apart from Byleth and Felix have minor ones. Moreover, Edelgard’s crest being Seiros’s is beginning to make a variety of sense. In any case, the identical crest options prominently in each the Adrestian Empire and the Church’s flags. Clearly, they’ve a robust relationship.

The Protagonist’s Colleagues

Afterwards, we have now profiles for 2 academics that work alongside the protagonist. Manuela was already coated earlier than, however Hanneman is new. He’s voiced by Kenji Hamada and is a scholar who research the facility of crests. He tends to get excited each time the subject of crests comes up.


First seen within the debut trailer, characters can deploy battalions who seem alongside and help them throughout battle. Battalions could be employed and outfitted to every character. By deploying battalions, the character’s talents might change and “Gambits” can be utilized.

The related professor degree is Authority. The preliminary professor talent is Authority Degree 1, which grants May +2 when a Gambit is used. By elevating a personality’s Authority, stronger battalions could be deployed and expertise associated to Gambits could be discovered.

Battalions could be employed by way of the Knights Guild because the story progresses. The above screenshots present the hiring course of. The choices at the beginning are Rent, Disband or Replenish. Subsequent, the participant chooses a battalion for Ingrid, the beforehand unnamed feminine from the Blue Lions.

Subsequent, you possibly can select from an inventory of battalions. You possibly can see the battalion’s identify, Gambit, required Authority degree and price to rent. The underside panel exhibits the battalion’s most well being and affected stats, in addition to the Gambit’s most makes use of and properties.

Battalion Gambit Authority Value
Seiros Church Troopers Disrupt E 1,000
Seiros Mercenary Brigade Violent Assault E 1,200
Seiros Monk Squadron Godspeed Preparation E 1,200
Seiros Maiden Squadron Echoed Magic: White E 1,200
Seiros Magic Brigade Group Magic: Flame D 1,200
Seiros Pegasus Brigade Lure Scheme D 1,200
Seiros Cavalry Brigade Hearth Scheme C 1,500
Kingdom Foot Troopers Lure Scheme E 1,000
Kingdom Lance Troopers Co-ordinated Lance Strike E 1,200
Kingdom Fist Squadron Disrupt E 1,200
Kingdom Magic Squadron Group Magic: Ice D 1,200

From the record, a lot of the battalions are aligned with the Knights of Seiros. However there are some presumably from the Kingdom of Faerghus as nicely. In a single screenshot, Petra is main an Empire Infantry, so I’m guessing there will probably be battalions from the Leicester Alliance as nicely.

Seirios Magic Brigade

  • HP 30, Power -2, Magic +1, Hit fee +zero, Essential +zero, Keep away from +zero, Defence +zero, Resistance +three, Appeal +three
  • Group Magic: Hearth (Makes use of: 1, Vary: 1~2, May: 2, Hit price: 60, targets adjoining squares)

Seiros Cavalry Brigade

  • HP 60, Power +2, Magic -1, Hit price +zero, Important +zero, Keep away from +1, Defence +1, Resistance +1, Allure +5
  • Hearth Scheme (Makes use of: 1, May: 10, Hit price: 50, turns ahead tiles in a triangular sample into “flaming” tiles)

The triangle icons subsequent to a personality point out the battalion’s well being. Three triangles means the battalion is wholesome (above two thirds well being), then it goes down to 2 triangles (under two thirds well being), one triangle (under a 3rd well being) and presumably none.

The “Appeal” stat has a presently unknown objective. Perhaps it’s associated to morale someway. Wanting on the home windows, it appears a battalion’s well being can attain triple digits and the Gambit utilization can attain double digits. Within the second screenshot, Violent Assault can be utilized a minimum of twice.

If the character main the battalion takes injury, the battalion’s well being will lower. As soon as the well being reaches zero, the battalion’s results will disappear and Gambits can’t be used. A battalion’s well being might be restored at a guild. For E to D rank battalions, it appears to value 1 Gold per well being, whereas C rank battalions value 2 Gold per well being.

Like characters, battalions can degree up and improve their talents by preventing. That is clear from the Petra screenshot above, displaying her defeating an enemy and gaining expertise for her battalion.


Gambits can be utilized by characters with battalions deployed. They will deal injury to enemies, but in addition present supportive results permitting for numerous methods. When utilizing a Gambit, enemies can’t counter-attack and a number of enemies could be focused on the similar time. However their makes use of are restricted.

Co-ordinated Lance Assault

Hits one enemy on the left and proper of the focused foe. This Gambit causes the “Misery” standing (reduces all stats by 10%, prevents motion, stat boosts from battalions and Gambits). Can be utilized at the very least twice.

This suggests enemies can use battalions and Gambits…

Godspeed Preparation

For one flip, will increase the motion of allies by 5. Targets an adjoining ally and appears to use the impact to all allies with a 2 tile radius of the goal (or perhaps only a triangle with the consumer on the centre and the goal on the edge). Can be utilized at the least twice.

Lure Scheme

Targets an adjoining foe and strikes them to the tile behind the consumer. Additionally creates a particular tile the place the foe was, which triggers the identical impact. Additionally appears to inflict “Misery” on the foe. Can be utilized a minimum of twice.


This can be a new sort of weapon that’s based mostly on fist-fighting. The related professor degree is Preventing and the preliminary professor talent is Preventing Degree 1, which grants Hit +5, Keep away from +7 and Essential Evade +5 when outfitted with Gauntlet.

Gauntlets permit the consumer to deal consecutive assaults, just like Courageous weapons. If the character’s Assault Velocity is four or greater than the opponent’s, a follow-up assault shall be carried out. If a Gauntlet is provided, you possibly can deal four hits in a single battle. Nevertheless, Gauntlets can’t be outfitted when driving on a horse or pegasus.

Within the instance proven, Caspar is provided with a Coaching Gauntlet. In contrast to earlier apply (and Bronze class) weapons, these can set off crucial hits.

Class Introduction

Beforehand, Famitsu coated the Commoner and Noble courses and courses out there after Degree 5. Under are some mid-tier courses out there after Degree 10. In case you missed it, characters apparently retain their Degree after class-changing (just like Reclassing).


Mercenaries who fulfill their goal. Excel in power and velocity.

As a mid-tier class, Mercenaries specialize in swords and axes just like Heroes in earlier video games. The featured character is Felix.


Riders who experience in battle on horseback. After preventing, they will transfer once more.

Class talent: Canto – After performing an motion, consumer can use their leftover motion (from Path of Radiance).

I’m positive lots of people are pleased concerning the return of Canto! The Cavalier right here is Lorenz.


An axe-fighter with distinctive power. With their wonderful vitality, they fare nicely on the front-lines.

The Brigand has inherited the axe and gauntlet specialties from the Fighter class. Our Brigand is Hilda.


A gauntlet-wielder who fights at close-combat. They’re adept at swift assaults.

Class talent: Barehanded Battle – Consumer can struggle and not using a weapon outfitted.

Confusingly, the Fistfighter (sorry, I couldn’t consider a greater identify) shares the identical specialties because the Brigand. In fact, their stats are in all probability totally different and the Fistfighter has a singular talent. Raphael is bearing his fists right here.


A practitioner of black magic. Good at preventing foes with excessive defence. This class can equip magic.

Class talent: Hearth – Allows using Hearth. If already discovered, doubles the variety of makes use of.

The category talent is fairly intriguing. If a personality doesn’t know the Hearth spell, they will use it as a Mage. But when they do have the spell, the variety of occasions it may be forged is doubled. It’s unclear how characters study spells although. I do not know who the Mage is with out her hat it’s Dorothea.

Darkish Mage

A practitioner of darkish magic. Good at preventing foes with excessive defence. This class can equip magic.

Class talent: Miasma△ – Allows using Miasma△. If already discovered, doubles the variety of makes use of.

Class talent: Hex – Reduces Keep away from of adjoining foes by 20.

Darkish magic shouldn’t be confused with Black magic, which seems to be the collective time period for offensive magic. I do not know what the triangle after Miasma’s identify is for, however presumably it’s a stronger model of the bottom spell. Our pretty Darkish Mage is one Hubert von Bestla.

Faculty Life

The sport is split into two elements: the battles you all know and love and the academy half. Within the academy half, you possibly can work together with college students and train them to spice up their talents. You can even examine the in-game calendar to plan tips on how to spend your days. P-Persona?

Recreation Movement

Throughout weekdays, there will probably be classes. You’ll be able to partake in Tutoring, Auto-Tutor, Group Process and Set Objectives. These are all choices within the Lesson Plan menu.

Throughout weekends, you’ll be able to take pleasure in some free time. You possibly can take a Stroll, Class, Relaxation, Enterprise and Examination. The latter lets you class-change.

Lastly, through the finish of a season, there will probably be a Subject Research. Is that this Trails of Chilly Metal? It will clearly contain heading out into fight. After that, the season will finish.

Let’s check out the calendar. Grasp on, it’s the identical one discovered within the Seasons of Warfare version! The highest 4 choices are Stroll, Class, Enterprise and Relaxation. Judging from the icon, Enterprise might allow you to exit and do some non-compulsory battles. Under that’s the store and Examination.

Strolling allows you to wander the academy grounds. You possibly can work together with the inhabitants and set off quests. Close to the bottom-right nook of the display are button prompts to open the Rankings (- button), Menu (X button) and Verify Schedule (Left and Proper on D-Pad).

The present season is the Flower Crown season; it’s just like the Flower Season (Flostym) in Echoes. In Fódlan, there are 12 seasons (months) in a yr, identical to in actual life. Every season is one chapter or act. You’ll undergo every day within the season, till the final day after which that present chapter ends.

The calendar itself has a number of symbols. The simplest one to recognise is the birthday image. Already, there are 2 birthdays this month, which appears a bit shocking in the event you solely have eight college students to start out with. Unusually, although it’s not marked, 22nd June appears to be Edelgard’s birthday (in order that’s three birthdays this month).

Different symbols embrace a golden “f” on Sundays and the final day of the month, which might stand free of charge time. That stated, shouldn’t Saturday be included as nicely? Additionally discovered on Sundays are quite a lot of small circle icons that look like associated to side-quests or interactions.

The fishing icon on 22nd June is the “legendary fish’s look”. In the meantime those for eighth June are “magical variation” (fishing), “earth’s blessing” (plant), “sweet-boosting weekend” (meals) and “choir pageant” (music). These all sound like… actions alright!

Mondays even have a notepad icon that appears to match the icon for a Class. I’m not fairly positive what occurs throughout a category–do you truly lecture? *Sweats* I’m only a mercenary that they pressured to hitch the academy… I can’t even say a sentence to save lots of my life.

Final however not least, the final day of the season has the insignia of the Leicester Alliance. The listed process is “Assist to retake Gaspard Citadel”. I’m guessing this citadel is situated within the Leicester Alliance. Until you’re main the Golden Deer and that’s why the image is there. However Edelgard’s birthday on the calendar suggests you’re main the Black Eagles.

Professor Ranges

Throughout tutoring, you possibly can train your college students and improve their professor ranges (Sword, Lance Axe, Authority and so on.). You possibly can Auto-Tutor too in the event you don’t need to pressure your head muscle mass, however when you rigorously train your college students, you’ll be able to higher form them to their wants.

Teacher Gauge: That is the inexperienced gauge and the quantity displayed close to the highest of the display. It exhibits what number of college students may be tutored in a single week. As your Teacher Degree will increase, it will go up.

Motivation: That is proven by the gauge with the smiley faces. The upper the scholar’s motivation, the extra occasions they are often tutored, permitting for elevated progress.

Within the above screenshots, Dimitri excels at Sword, Lance and Authority, however is weak at Axe and Cause. There’s additionally an Teacher Bonus for Swords and Preventing. The primary time he’s tutored in Sword he positive factors eight Exp (four base, 2 from his private power and a couple of from the Teacher Bonus).

The second time he’s tutored, the result’s “Nice” as an alternative of “Good” for some purpose and he features 1.5x EXP so 12. I’m unsure what prompted the distinction, as nothing has modified besides the motivation gauge–the outcome might merely be associated to probability.

Teacher Degree and Gauges

Along with the Teacher Gauge, there’s a Stroll Gauge and Enterprise Gauge as properly. Because the protagonist’s “Teacher Degree” will increase, the quantity of occasions you are able to do issues will improve and also you’ll have the ability to get extra out of your week.

Your Teacher Degree may be improved by educating, socialising and taking strolls and so forth. If you’d like your college students to grow to be their greatest, your progress as a instructor might be important. The extra actions you will get in, the better you’ll progress by way of the story!

Even eating together with your college students can enhance your Teacher Degree. Above, we will see Mercedes and Annette having fun with their meals with you. Afterwards, the help factors between the 2 characters and the protagonist improve and the 2 college students’ motivation additionally improve.

In the meantime, the Protagonist’s Teacher Degree will increase from E to E+ consequently. Their Stroll Gauge is elevated, in addition to their paid Exercise Funds. Wait, do academics have to fund faculty actions out of their very own pockets? Though I suppose it’s in all probability the academy that’s paying you…

Motivating College students

To easily develop your college students’ skills, you’ll need to hold their motivation excessive. Motivation could be elevated by interacting with the protagonist and through battle. Motivating college students is important for any good instructor.

College students will typically ask you questions. That’s a great time to unravel their troubles by giving sensible and sound recommendation. Hey, you need to use your grownup expertise someplace!

I hear boys appear to want cute, regular women over beautiful beauties. However isn’t it like how dukes are all the time above viscounts? What do you assume, instructor?

>It’s exhausting to strategy these superior to you.
>Nothing actually issues on the finish of the day.
>You’d get bored consuming fantastic delicacies on a regular basis.

Choosing the third choice appears to elicit the right response from Dorothea.

For some purpose, women take a look at me in disdain. Is courting a woman merely a lofty dream for me? No, maybe, in my case it’s an unattainable dream.

>Attempt to say a joke to alleviate the strain.
>Attempt smiling and laughing.
>It’s OK if it’s an unattainable dream.

I dare somebody to select the third choice. Apparently the second choice is sufficient to fulfill Lorenz. Hopefully he gained’t come crying again tomorrow…

Answering questions does greater than increase Motivation. It additionally will increase your Teacher Degree. When it reaches D, your Stroll and Teacher Gauges will each go up.


Throughout particular person tutoring, you’ll be able to decide a specific professor degree to boost for every scholar. By elevating these ranges, college students can study new expertise and wield higher weapons. For probably the most half, outfitted weapons don’t change when class-changing, so chances are you’ll need to concentrate on a primary weapon. It appears magic is restricted by class although.

We’ve seen “Good” and “Nice”, however one other attainable results of tutoring is “Dangerous”. This seems to provide a minimal quantity of Exp. Poor Hubert appears fairly depressed right here. His chosen professor Degree is Lance, which has three stars subsequent to it–we’ll study what these do quickly.

On the reverse finish of the spectrum, one other attainable result’s “Good”. This provides 2x Exp, which Dedue appears fairly happy with. Equally, it appears to be random which outcome you get. As a result of afterwards, there’s a screenshot of Hubert getting a “Good” beneath virtually the identical circumstances.

In line with Famitsu, these 4 outcomes are all the outcomes you will get. On prime of affecting the quantity of expertise earned in the direction of a Professor Degree, the outcome–and what you do afterwards–can have an effect on a scholar’s Motivation as nicely. After Hubert will get a “Dangerous”, you’ll be able to choose to scold or consolation him. Getting a “Good” allows you to praise the scholar solely.

Above are the Professor Ranges for Dedue. He excels at Lance, Axe, Preventing and Heavy Armour, however is poor at Religion, Driving and Flying. There’s at present an Teacher Bonus for Sword and Authority. A poor Professor Degree reduces the Exp achieve by 2. Because the base achieve is four, that’s a 50% loss, which is critical.

Set Objectives

Apart from tutoring, you possibly can select the “Set Objectives” choice to make a scholar concentrate on two Professor Ranges for them to enhance by way of self-studying every week. By enhancing sure ranges, you can also make college students enter exams to vary class. So attempt to give attention to ranges which might be applicable.

College students can even recommend their very own objectives, however solely you possibly can approve them.

I’ve determined. I need to research Cause. Even when I need to struggle, I don’t need to use a weapon. I want to discover extra methods to battle with magic.

Right here, the participant modifications Linhardt’s focus from Purpose and Religion to only Purpose. I’m guessing solely having one focus doubles the expansion for Purpose. For these unaware, Purpose is the extent for offensive magic (aka Anima within the GBA video games). Simply put him on a horse and daddy Reinhardt can be proud.

Guys simply have to win with one decisive blow. I wanna knock the enemy flying with my spinning axe! I’mma study the best way of the Axe, and be a correct Warrior!

The excitable Caspar needs to go from Preventing and Religion (that’s a reasonably curious mixture) to only Axe.

Above, the participant is setting a customized Bow and Driving focus for Ferdinand. He’s good at Driving, in order that’s not a nasty selection. His default focus appears to be Lance and Axe. Additionally, Dedue’s focus is about to Lance and Preventing. Fortunately, he’s nice at each. His earlier focus was Axe and Preventing.

Group Duties

Every week, two college students may be given group duties. Once they full the duty, the Professor Ranges for that activity will improve and the help factors between the 2 college students will go up. Additionally, relying on the success, a reward might be earned.

Bernadetta and Dorothea have been chosen for this group activity.

  • Weeding: Assist to take away weeds from the academy grounds. Boosts Heavy Armour.

The anticipated outcome appears to be 2 out of 5 stars. Additionally, it appears Bernadetta and Dorothea can attain C and B help ranks. It’s unusual that A rank isn’t obtainable, though it might be locked till story development.

The group activity was a “Good” success and the rewards embrace help factors between the 2, 500 Gold and three Forging Stones. Hmm, it looks like forging shall be again in some capability. There’s additionally an up arrow subsequent to Bernadetta, maybe as a result of she’s good with Heavy Armour?

  • Aerial Anti-measures: Assist with establishing anti-measures towards aerial foes. Boosts Flying.

This time, Edelgard and Petra are working collectively. Their mixture allowed for a “Good” end result, netting help factors, 1000 G and 5 Forging Stones. Likewise, there’s an up arrow subsequent to Petra, which might point out a proficiency in Flying.

Blossoming Expertise

Some college students have three stars subsequent to a Professor Degree they’re weak at. After tutoring this degree a sure variety of occasions, the scholar’s expertise in that degree might bloom! Apart from turning into adept in that degree, the scholar can study new expertise and skills. Typically it’s good to work in your weaknesses!

Earlier, I used to be poking enjoyable at Dorothea missing Religion, however in the event you hold tutoring her in Religion, you’ll be able to deliver a few constructive change. Additionally observe the Holy Cethlenn Statue that Dorothea has, which boosts her Exp achieve by 1 in all observable Professor Ranges. Additionally, wow, she has B+ in Purpose.

After filling within the three stars, Dorothea turns into robust in Religion (the pink down arrow will change to a inexperienced up arrow) and she or he learns a brand new talent “White Magic Keep away from +20”. I’m not too positive what that does. It’d increase keep away from towards enemy White Magic or increase the consumer’s Keep away from when White Magic is used.

Hubert in the meantime is packing a B rank in Cause and Authority. He additionally excels at Bow, Purpose and Authority however fails at Axe and Religion. In contrast to Dorothea, he has three stars in Lance, however he’s impartial in the direction of it. Nonetheless, the basics are the identical. After filling in all three stars, he turns into adept at Lance and features the talent “Ice Javelin”.

That’s all of the gameplay, however Famitsu has some story bits to share on the very finish.

Church of Seiros

The Church of Seiros, which is deeply rooted in Fódlan, was based by the Divine Seiros. Within the distant previous, they fought towards the Liberation King Nemesis through the Conflict of Heroes, to revive order to Fódlan. It’s stated they helped to determine the Adrestian Empire as properly.

As time handed, the Holy Kingdom of Faerghus turned unbiased, and later the Leciester Alliance cut up off as nicely. An extended warfare was fought over supremacy. Nevertheless, within the current period, the nations exist in equilibrium and it’s largely because of the Church of Seiros.

Okay, I feel one specific thriller has been solved with this description. The battle featured close to the beginning of the E3 trailer might be displaying the battle between Seiros and Nemesis. I feel some individuals guessed as a lot. Meaning the lady who I assumed resembled Rhea, the present archbishop, is Seiros–and probably her ancestor.

Additionally, I feel it’s fairly apparent that the protagonist is said to Nemesis, assuming he’s the man with the identical mysterious crest on his cape. Nemesis’s title of “Liberation King” is fairly suspicious as properly. I can’t assist however assume he was preventing to liberate the continent from the affect of the crests or one other noble trigger, however was labeled a villain after his loss.


Most of the the Aristocracy, who’re descended from Fódlan’s Ten Greats who fought through the Conflict of Heroes, hail from households that bear crests. Crests are handed down by bloodline, however not all descendants inherit crests and solely a small variety of individuals can invoke their talents.

Crests are divided into “Main Crests” that include immense energy and “Minor Crests” whose energy is weaker. Usually, it’s believed the stronger the hero’s blood, the upper the prospect of getting a serious crest. However a toddler with a serious crest can all of a sudden be born and the rationale behind that is at present unknown.

When you’ve performed Family tree of the Holy Struggle, it seems like crests work precisely just like the holy blood and types in that recreation. In that recreation, there’s main and minor blood. Main blood reaps the most important advantages and is required to wield the weapons of the legendary Crusaders. In the meantime minor blood is simply kind of simply there.

Basically, main blood might be preserved by mixing collectively the identical blood. That is evident in the best way that in-game inheritance works. Nevertheless, lore-wise, main blood (which can also be tied to the looks of manufacturers) can even seem randomly within the household, even when the blood is diluted. I don’t assume this similarity is a coincidence…

That’s every part for in the present day! Should you observed something odd or have any theories to share, please hit me up!
