I sure wasn’t expecting to see Chrom in the Legendary Hero bracket, but it looks like he got his chance today, in the next Legendary Hero banner as Chrom: Crowned Exalt.
Chrom himself follows in his Legendary daughter’s footsteps as a Blue Infantry archer, but this time is of the Water blessing, has Pair Up potential and brings the Duel bonus (what the BST rating is, has not yet been confirmed). His skills are definitely geared towards either just dealing immense amounts of damage, not taking too much physical damage, and with his unusual Assist skill, has a combo once-per-turn Reposition/Dance/Rally Atk+ all in one (with a drawback to balance it out). His setup includes the following:
- Voice: Matt Mercer | Art: Hino Shinnosuke
- 14 Mt | 2 Rng
- Effective vs Armors
- Effective vs Fliers
- Grants Atk +3.
- If foe’s HP = 100% at start of combat, neutralizes penalties on unit and inflicts Atk/Def -6 on foe during combat.
- To Change Fate! (Assist)
- Moves target ally to opposite side of unit and grants another action to unit.
- Grants Atk +6 to unit and Pair Up cohort (if any) for 1 turn.
- Inflicts [Isolation] on unit and Pair Up cohort (if any) through their next action.
- [Isolation] Target cannot use or be the target of Assist skills through its next action (Sing, Dance, Harsh Command+, Restore, etc.)
- (Does not stack)
- Close Counter (A)
- Lull Atk/Def 3 (B)
- Rouse Def/Res 3 (C)
Of course, Legendary Hero banners always include friends at an 8% focused summoning rate. This time, Chrom’s crew includes:
- Azura (Legendary)
- Julia (Legendary
- Alm (Legendary)
- Corrin (Fallen)
- Lyn (Legendary)
- Eirika (Legendary)
Personally, I’m going to try to use this as a chance to dive into the Colorless pool, because Alm and Corrin are pretty intense units.
This Legendary Heroes banner runs for a week, from February 27 until March 3, so if you’re after any of these Heroes, or want a beefy Blue archer, now’s a great chance!
