Aether Raids-Defensive Attack/Speed (Japanese: 攻撃速さの防城戦 Attack-Speed Defend Castle Battle) is a four-tiered passive type A skill which debuted in Fire Emblem Heroes; the individual tiers of the skill are known as AR-D Atk/Spd 1, AR-D Atk/Spd 2, AR-D Atk/Spd 3, and AR-D Atk/Spd 4 in order from lowest to highest. It is a skill that takes effect only in the Aether Raids mode, and units with an AR-D Atk/Spd skill boost their Attack and Speed during combat while on the defensive side of a battle based on the number of the player's structures that currently survive, with more structures granting a bigger boost; the scale of the stat boosts magnifies at higher tiers.
