Tempest Trials: Love of Family Key Points

Make use of In the Moment Units!

Tempest Trials+: Love of Family is centered around the newly released desert-themed special heroes, obtainable through the Dark Desert Rituals summon. The other bonus units from this event include the Plegian Kris (M) gained from this event as well as the original alts of Lene, Katarina and the Kris (F) alt. If you have units from the latest summon, you would be wise to train and use them here.

This event's big prize is Plegian Kris (M)!

Plegian Kris (M) Builds and Best IVs

The free unit obtained through a high score in this event is Plegian Kris (M). Since Plegian Kris (M) cannot be obtained through regular summon, be sure to obtain him here before the event expires. A 5★ version of Plegian Kris (M) will be given as a reward once you reach a cumulative score of 15,000.

Obtainable Seals from this Event

We recommend scoring at least 20,000 points so that you can claim all major rewards. Ninja Hana is a good unit and has decent skills for fodder. Both Sacred Seals are very helpful too! They suit a variety of units so it would not hurt getting them.

This event's boss is Plegian Tharja

The boss for Tempest Trials+: Love of Family is Plegian Tharja. She has many skills that activate when she attacks your units so watch out for those. It might be best to bring a player phase unit of yours like Brave Lyn or any other bow unit with a Brave Bow+. Use them to get to Plegian Tharja first to not get hit by Plegian Torch+ and Swift Sparrow 3**!

As mentioned, the best way to take out Plegian Tharja is to get to her first before she can attack your units. The units above are high-powered offensive units that can make quick work of Plegian Tharja if they initiate upon her. Klein and Gordin are also bow users that can make use of the 1.5x damage multiplier to take Tharja down. Plegian Raphael can also work too as he is a bonus unit and a bow wielder. Just make sure that he gets to her first. That can be hard as he is an armored unit.

Heroes with Effective Skills

Bonus Heroes receive a stat boost

You Win

During Tempest Trials, Bonus Units will receive HP+10 and +4 to all other stats. These bonus points will give a non-merged ally the same stat bonuses of a +10 ally, which is also like having a Fortify skill constantly active on all stats. Bonus Units are very powerful with these stat boosts, so use them as much as possible.
