Rules For Transferring a Skill

Inherit Skill

The source hero will be lost

The hero used as a source for inheriting skills will be sent home. Powerful heroes will be unusable after their skills are transferred, so think carefully about what their skills will be used for before doing away with them.

Skills can be transferred regardless of a unit's rarity!

Inherit Skill can be used between any two units, regardless of their respective rarities. However, the source hero must have reached the correct rarity in order for certatin skills to be unlocked.

Inherited skills must be learned before they can be used

Skills inherited from another hero will be marked as Unlearned in the beginning, and actually learning them will require 1.5x the normal amount of SP.

3 Points to Make the Most out of Inherit Skill

1. Know the strengths of the unit who you will be transferring a new skill to.

Using Inherit Skill to try and compensate for a unit's weaknesses is generally tough to do, and even if you are able to successfully do so, it usually only leads to a jack-of-all-trades type unit who doesn't particularly excel in anything. Therefore, it is recommended that you first know what a unit's strengths are and use Inherit Skill to increase those strengths even more.

2. Consider the needs of your party as well.

Skills such as Gronnblade+ should be used in parties where units have skills that grant bonuses to the user of this weapon. Using Inherit Skill in this way allows you to strengthen all of your units in a party so that these skills do not go to waste.

3. Transfer skills efficiently.

When the amount of source heroes that you have for a particular skill is limited, it is extremely important that you use Inherit Skill efficiently. When you are trying to transfer over the final skill in a skill chain that is only unlocked by a 5★ unit, you should first inherit the prerequisite skills from another 3★ or 4★ unit and then use a 5★ unit only to inherit the final skill from those skill chains. This will allow you to get the most out of the 5★ unit that you use as a source hero.
