Combat art


Encloser (Japanese: 囲いの矢 Enclosing Arrow) is a combat art which debuted in Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia. A weapon skill linked to the Longbow in the base game as well as Python's Bow via DLC, Encloser allows its user to deal a stun effect against its target, essentially halting its movement for a single turn after combat. It also appears in Three Houses, where it is learned by a select few units that are proficient in bows.
