Beginners Guide: How to Reroll, Unique Character Stats, and Hero Battles

Beginners Guide
Step 1: Reroll
Reroll
1. Acquiring the Heroes you want
  • You only have to finish the first 3 missions after the tutorial to get enough orbs for a multi-summon.
    • You need a total of 20 for a cost effective multi-summon:
      • 15 for the tutorial
      • 2 for the log in bonus
      • 3 from first 3 missions.
  • Don't link your Nintendo account so you only have to uninstall to re-roll
  • If you get the error message just spam retry, don't go to the title screen, it will restart progress.
  • Unfortunately there is no way to get around the 300MB download as of now for unrooted devices.

Tips (those with rooted phones):

  • Open File explorer
  • Find "com.nintendo.zaba" and open
  • Find the "shared_prefs" folder
  • Delete the "deviceAccount.xml"

Now you can start over without downloading any game data again.

Heroes
▲Every Character can reach max rank.
2. Every Hero can rank up to 5 stars (Max Rarity)

Heroes can level up to 5 Stars (Max Rarity). As long as you have the materials required to rank up, even a 1 or 3 star Hero can become a 5 star.  All heroes will function the same at their final form. Therefore, starting with a 3 star Hero is okay, as long as it's final form is good.

3. Reroll Criteria

Proceed through the game quickly

If you want to breeze through the early game quickly, start with a Hero that has good stats and skills. It will help through the Arena and Story modes and hopefully be a viable unit in the future.

Pick your favorite character

If you have a specific favorite character from a different title, make sure the Hero Summon features that character in order to pull it.

Step 2: The Battle System
Step 2: The Battle System
Element is Important!

Like other Fire Emblem games, units have different Element (Weapon) types and each one has their favorable and unfavorable match-ups. Favorable match-ups deal 20% more damage and take a reduced 20% damage.

Element

Applies to enemies that you fight

Obviously this also applies to enemies that you fight in-game. If your opponent has Heroes with better element match-ups, you will have a tough time winning. Therefore, it is good to have a diverse team.

Effective Damage
▲Don't stack characters with the same element, even if they are strong.
Effective Damage

Flying units are weak against Bows

Units on Pegasus's are considered "Flying Units" and are weak against Bows.  Flying Units are capable of moving longer distances, therefore new player tend to over extend with them. If you are new to the game, keep this in mind.

Skills can deal effective damage

Certain units can deal effective damage based on their skill set. For example, "Wyrmsbane" can deal Effective Damage against units on Dragons or units that can transform into Dragons.

Danger Areas
▲Tiki is a character who turns into a Dragon, keep her away from Wyrmsbane.
Danger Areas

At the start of every turn, be aware of the "Danger Area" as it indicates whether or not you can be attacked. If your units are not ready for battle, keep them outside of this zone to avoid any enemy attack.

Step 3: Level up your Heroes!
Step 3: Level up your Heroes!
1. There are 2 ways to raise Hero level

Level up through Battling (Most Basic)

The most basic way to increase your units level is through battling. When you battle an enemy unit, you will receive EXP. If you want to efficiently level up a certain character and gain more EXP, make sure that the unit gets the last hit on the opposing enemy unit.

Level up with crystals

You can also level up your units outside of battles with Crystals.

2. Castle

This will require Orbs, but once you purchase the Castle, it will permanently increase EXP that you acquire. The Castle can grant you up to +100% (2x) more EXP, so if you want to grind faster it is a highly recommended upgrade.

3. Acquire Skills with Skill Points (SP)

Different system than EXP or Hero Level

Each Hero can learn their own Skills. You acquire SP by defeating an enemy and leveling up a unit.  Try to spend your SP efficiently since it takes a while to obtain.

3. Acquire Skills with Skill Points (SP)
Step 4: Ranking Up and Limit Break
Step 4: Ranking Up and Limit Break
1. Increase Hero Rarity by Ranking Up

Once your Unit reaches level 20, you can "Rank Up" by 1, which enables you to raise your unit's stats even higher and learn stronger skills.

2. Limit Break Stats with Duplicate Heroes

If you get multiples of the same Hero, you can use them to Limit Break the Hero's stats, enabling you to raise your Hero's stats above it's cap and gain SP.  There are still lots of unknown things about limit break that needs to be researched.

Step 7: Unique Stats and Growth Rate
Step 7: Unique Stats and Growth Rate
1. Heroes have unique individual stats

Stats differences

Heroes have unique stats. For example, you could have two Marths, one with higher damage and lower defense or vice versa.

Grinding

If you want the best unit, you may need to grind for it.

2. Growth Rate

Units have certain stats that are weighed higher than others. For example, Oboro's defense stat increases more, while Lilina's power stat increases more.
