Passive (Type C)

First game


Divine Deceit (Japanese: 神杖天空を偽る Divine staff false sky) is a passive type C skill which debuted in Fire Emblem Heroes; Divine Deceit comes in only one tier. Divine Deceit inflicts Gravity, Ploy, and Exposure on foes in rows or columns near the user with less resistance; additionally, it neutralizes the bonus effects of foes with many effects, and boosts its user's stats against foes with penalties.
