Crests (Warriors)

From Fire Emblem Wiki, your source on Fire Emblem Wiki information. By Fans, for Fans.

Crests (Japanese: 紋章 Emblem) are a type of ability in Fire Emblem Warriors that grants additional effects to characters. There are three crest trees for characters to make use of, Attack, Defense, and Boost; the Boost tree is further subdivided into Boost Crests and Skills.

Basic crests can be acquired at the Crest Market in exchange for gold and materials; apart from the Skills designation, each character has their own list of materials required in order to learn a crest. Crests other than those in the Skills category and the Surge Crest can also be upgraded into further advanced forms, which require previous forms of the crest, additional gold, additional materials (which vary per character), and in some cases may also require a Surge Crest.

Attack Crests

Mastery Crest 1 Allows user to use the true power of their personal weapon
Sanctuary Crest 1 Allows user to further power up their personal weapon

Skills work a little differently from other types of crests, in that each character is primarily associated with one skill of their own, which can be learned with three of a certain type of common material linked to the character in question. Other characters can learn these skills, but they require one each of an essence and a rarer material also themed to the character who originated the skill.
