First game

Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia

The Rhomphaia (Japanese: ロムファイア Rhomphaia) is a lance which was introduced in Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia. Its stats are mediocre and unremarkable, aside from its minor boost to its user's critical hit rate, but it gives its user access to a wide selection useful of combat arts which add effectiveness against cavalry and armored units, and the ability to use the wielder's speed stat to increase damage output.
