What Does Speed Do? | Fire Emblem: Three Houses (FE3H)

This is a guide to Speed, one of the stats of Fire Emblem: Three Houses (FE3H). Here we will explain how this stat works, how to raise your speed, and how it leads to gaining follow-up attacks.

What Does Speed Do?

FE3H Speed effect
Equipping a weapon with 3 more weight than the original increases the Attack speed and Avoidance of the unit by 3 as well.

Affects Avoid Rate

Speed's tooltip clearly states that Speed affects avoid rate. The higher the speed stat of your unit, the more attacks they can avoid.

Affects Attack Speed

This is not stated outright in the game, the higher your speed, the higher your attack speed is. A longer explanation can be seen in the page below.

What is Attack Speed?

Decides Who Gets a Follow-Up Attack

FE3H Double Attack
Attack speed indicates which units get to attack twice in a single turn. This can easily be seen by preparing the attack command against enemies. Another way to check is by checking the stats of your character and the enemy. If your attack speed is 5 or more higher than the enemy's, you get to attack twice.

What Increases / Decreases Speed?

Weight Decreases Speed

Having heavy equipment also burdens the unit. In turn, equipping a lighter weapon such as Iron or Training weapons will make your unit lighter. For more information about weight, see the link below.

Equipping a Speed Ring

A Speed Ring provides a flat 2 bonus to your unit's speed. This can be a lifesaver against fast enemies or just the extra stat you need to land a double hit against a vulnerable enemy.

Using a Speed Carrot

A speed carrot is a stat-boosting item in the game. Using a Speed Carrot raises the unit's speed by 1 permanently . Make sure to use these valuable items properly.
