Thank you for playing the Fire Emblem Heroes game!


This notice is to inform you of an issue with the Prayer Wheel skill used by Legendary Hero Azura: Vallite Songstress.

■ Issue Details

If a skill that increases the stats of characters who have been granted another action, such as Earth Dance, is used in combination with the Prayer Wheel skill, the Sing skill, or the Gray Waves skill, the effect will be different depending on how the options are set within the game's Settings menu. (This issue also occurs when skills like Earth Dance are equipped using a Sacred Seal.)

・ When the Support Animations option is set to On, using the Sing and Gray Waves skills will boost one stat for the target Hero (e.g., when Earth Dance 3 is used, the target Hero is granted Def+5).

・ When the Support Animations option is set to Off, using the Sing and Gray Waves skills will boost each of the Atk/Spd/Def/Res stats for the target Hero (e.g., when Earth Dance 3 is used, the target Hero is granted Atk/Spd/Def/Res+5).

■ Issue Cause

The Prayer Wheel skill grants a bonus to target's Atk/Spd/Def/Res equal to the highest bonus on that target for 1 turn if Sing or Dance is used—but this skill was not initially designed to take stat bonuses into account from skills like Earth Dance that grant stat bonuses on top of granting an extra action.

So, when Support Animations is set to Off, the effect of Prayer Wheel will trigger after the effects of skills like Earth Dance have been triggered, granting bonuses to Atk/Spd/Def/Res.

■ Issue Fix

Initially, the skill was designed to behave like it does when Support Animations is set to On. However, in light of how players are using Azura: Vallite Songstress, we are adjusting behavior so the effect of Prayer Wheel will be buffed in an update planned for February. After the changes, the effect that currently occurs when Support Animations is set to Off will still occur, even when Support Animations is set to On.

Additionally, the description of the Prayer Wheel skill will be updated to reflect this change.

A notification will be distributed once these changes have been made.

Until these changes are made, please set Support Animations to Off if you wish to combine Azura: Vallite Songstress with skills and Sacred Seals like Earth Dance.

We hope that you continue to enjoy Fire Emblem Heroes!
