Today’s FE Heroes update brings us Astram: Midia’s Hero from Mystery of the Emblem as a Grand Hero Battle reward!
This GHB begins today, and is available until the 3rd of October, 6:59am UTC. Rewards for completing all three difficulties is three copies of Astram (1 x 3-Star, 2 x 4-Star) and 2,000 Feathers.
Astram is yet another sword infantry unit, but has some pretty great stats at 5-Stars, level 40 which potentially put him above many other sword infantry reward units: 44 HP, 35 Atk, 36 Spd, 36 Def, 21 Res – 172 BST, which is joint-highest BST for sword infantry in the game, right next to Brave Alm.
On top of that, he comes with the Prf weapon Mercurius, with a description as follows: Grants Atk+3. At start of turn, if unit’s HP ≥ 50%, grants Atk/Spd/Def/Res+4 to unit and sword, lance, axe, bow, dagger, or beast allies within 2 spaces for 1 turn (Bonus granted to unit even if no allies are within 2 spaces.). He also comes with Bonfire (at 4-Stars), Wind Boost 3 (at 4-Stars), and Wrath 3 (at 5-Stars).
If you choose to merge him up, he will receive +2 HP, +2 Atk, and +1 Spd upon his first merge.
To sum up, as long as he is at 50% HP or above and has been merged once, he will have 46 HP, 60 Atk, 41 Spd, 40 Def, and 25 Res in combat. That’s not something to sleep on.
