Striving Sword (Japanese: 憧憬の剣 Sword of yearning) is a weapon skill in the sword category which debuted in Fire Emblem Heroes; it is a personal weapon of Severa. When its user is near allies, Striving Sword boosts their stats based on their foe's attack, reduces their foe's special cooldown charge, and neutralizes effects that reduce the damage its user deals by a percentage
