Type

Tome

First game

Fire Emblem Fates

Iago's Tome (Japanese: マクベスの惑書 Makubex's Confusing Book) is a tome that debuted in Fire Emblem Fates. Named for the Nohrian advisor Iago, the Iago's Tome appears statistically unimpressive for a high-level weapon, especially one that takes its toll on its wielder; it does, however, drop its enemy's defenses upon a successful strike.
