Green tome

From Fire Emblem Wiki, your source on Fire Emblem information. By fans, for fans.
The icon of green tomes in Heroes.

The green tome is a type of weapon skill appearing in Fire Emblem Heroes; it is one of three subsets of the game's representation of the tome weapon type. Green tomes have weapon triangle advantage over blue tomes and other blue weapons, but have weapon triangle disadvantage against red tomes and other red weapons.

Green tomes based on tomes that appear in the main Fire Emblem series have thus far been primarily based on wind elementals but are not limited to them (one light-elemental spell is in the green tome category). Unlike in the main Fire Emblem series, wind-elemental spells do not inherently deal bonus damage to flying units, as only two such tomes, both associated with variations of Merric, actually bear anti-flight effects in Heroes.

List of green tomes

If a weapon does not have any Yes check.png marks next to it, it is a weapon thus far exclusive to Heroes and has yet to appear in the main Fire Emblem series.
Due to the nature of Heroes as a game that is constantly updated adding new elements with each update, new green tomes may be added to the game with any given update and thus may render this list incomplete at any given time.
