Like the characters of many other RPGs, those in Fire Emblem: Trail of Blue Flames will each have a
special set of skills they learn as they level up. Today, new details on such skills were revealed as well as some characters that may be using them.
One new skill revealed is "Taunt." This skill draws enemies towards the acting character, making it useful for taking heat off of characters with lower HP or defense. For a pre-emptive strike in battle, "Ambush" is the way to go. A character wielding "Rage" will gain double strength and the ability to counter attack when his or her HP drops below half.
New characters revealed today are Wayu, Shinon, Nepheny, and Gatry. Wayu is a skinny and waif-like girl, but an excellent swordswoman. Shinon is an excellent archer and sniper with a somewhat jaded personality. Nepheny is strong in both willpower and physical strength, with an admirable sense of duty as well. Gatry is a jolly old soul off the battle field, while masterfully using a pike in combat.
The exact skill repertoire of each cast member is not yet known, but expect RPGamer to make the matches and report if such details should come forth before the game's Spring release.
