Fire Emblem Heroes has a lot of characters. Dozens, in fact. How on Earth do you choose which among the multitude deserves a place in your extremely exclusive four-person battle squad? Well, you could simply choose characters you like—but that’s no way to play a game like this. You want to be the best! You want to crush your enemies, see them driven before you, hear the lamentations of their waifus! We are here to help you do just that. Put these hardened warriors at the vanguard of your tiny army, and you will emerge triumphant from every skirmish.
