Fire Emblem: Three Hopes – Edelgard Character Guide (Abilities, Arts, & Gear)

Edelgard is the Emperor of Adrestia and one of the playable characters with a couple of unique classes in Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes.

Edelgard is the Emperor of Adrestia in Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes as well as one of the playable characters that Shez can follow into battle throughout the game. A lot of events happen in the prologue of the game that results in Edelgard’s transition from being one of the students at the Officers Academy to her being the ruler of the Adrestian Empire. After Shez makes the decision to join the Black Eagles student house in the prologue, Edelgard will remain as one of the main playable characters that are incredibly strong with low mobility.

Edelgard has access to three unique character abilities in Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes, namely Solar Prominence, Emperor’s Prestige, and Ambition. These are her Action, Support, and Tactical abilities, respectively, and they’ll each get stronger across three separate levels. At its core, Solar Prominence allows Edelgard to imbue attacks with fire, while Emperor’s Pledge causes enemies that are guarding to sustain a percentage of calculated damage. Lastly, Ambition reduces the damage that Eldegard receives from enemies by 30%, further adding to the character’s bulkier stats.

First and foremost, the best gear that players can equip on Edelgard are shields and other items that increase her defenses without sacrificing her powerful strength. Much like the Fluegel class that can only be used by Shez in Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes, Armored Lord is a class that is unique to Edelgard. Additionally, as players level the character up and reach the Master class, Edelgard will unlock another unique class that is only available to her called Emperor. Lastly, the best weapons for Edelgard to equip for both classes are axes and shields, allowing her to become one of the best tank characters in the game.
