Time's Pulse (Japanese: 始まりの鼓動 Origin's pulse) is a three-tiered passive type C skill which debuted in Fire Emblem Heroes; the individual tiers of the skill are Time's Pulse 1, Time's Pulse 2, Time's Pulse 3, and Time's Pulse 4 in order from lowest to highest. Time's Pulse allows its user to accelerate any maximized special skill cooldown count at the start of its user's phase; the amount of time between this skill's activations decreases with the skill's tier.
