First game


Bow of Twelve (Japanese: 双聖戦士の聖弓 Holy warrior pair's holy bow) is a weapon skill in the bow category which debuted in Fire Emblem Heroes; it is a personal weapon of the festival variation of Leif. Bow of Twelve allows its user to move one space after certain actions; additionally, when the user initiates combat or has high HP and when the foe uses a tome or staff, it boosts its user's stats and allows its user to survive an otherwise-lethal attack.

combat and foe uses magic or staff, grants
Atk/Spd/Def/Res+5 to unit during combat,

【Canto (1)】
After an attack, Assist skill, or structure
destruction, unit can move 1 space(s).

if a skill that grants another action would be

a distance greater than unit would be able to
move with normal Canto movement.)
