Description[edit | edit source]
The Spear of Assal originally belonged to Cichol, where it restored health to the wielder, with effects that are boosted for someone with a Crest of Cichol. The spear is found within a certain grave in the Rhodos Coast, alongside the Caduceus Staff.
This weapon also appears in Fire Emblem Heroes as the unique weapon of Seteth. This weapon provides him a base boost of +3 Speed. In addition, if Seteth has an ally within two spaces, the Spear of Assal grants him +4 Attack and Speed during combat and neutralizes his foes visible stat boosts to those same stats. It also grants the Attack and Speed boost to allies within 2 spaces while they are in combat.
