A lance that came at a price.



First game

Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia

The Kriemhild (Japanese: クリムヒルド Kriemhild) is a lance which was introduced in Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia. It is wielded by Berkut in his appearance as a boss in Act 5. It has the longest range of any lance in the game, which combined with its respectable might and good hit makes approaching Berkut to attack a dangerous prospect. It also gives him strong defensive abilities by providing both boosts to his defensive stats and the Phantasm skill, which reduces the damage he takes from bows and black magic: the only weapon types which can attack him from a far enough distance that he cannot counter-attack.
