FE_HeroesJP just tweeted out confirmation on the next Grand Hero Battle for Berkut, which will begin starting tomorrow, July 18, and presumably running for about a week as is the standard we’ve been seeing for GHBs. This map will feature Berkut and his allies, fighting your team. What’s to note is the atypical unit placement for your allies, making first turn buffing a bit of a challenge.
Berkut himself is armed with the A skill Water Boost 3 and his personal Lance, both of which grant situational bonuses to the Resistance stat.
Water Boost 3: If unit has at least 3 more HP than enemy at the start of combat, unit receives Res+6 during combat.
Berkut’s Lance: 14 MT, 1 Rng, Grants Res+4 when the unit is under attack.
He’ll also boast the Ward Cavalry C skill (as currently seen on Eliwood) which grants Def/Res+4 to Cavalry combat stats within two spaces similar to Spur skills, and also possesses the Special skill Blazing Flame, (as currently seen on Jeorge), which hits two tiles to the left and right of the target for 1.5x (unit’s Atk minus foe’s Def or Res). Lastly, there will be an Infernal difficulty available, likely matching the previous Infernal challenges, offering a 4-star reward with a Hero Feather bonus.
Additionally, the new Arena season bonus units are announced. We’ll see the six units from the recent banners (Delthea, Mathilda, Gray, Saber, Sonya and Leon), as well as Grand Hero Battle unit Clarisse, Virion, Cecilia and Askrian Sharena.
