Each War For Eos Season comes with new Heroes, and Season 5 brings us Crowe, Libertus and Nyx; each entry below will give you a quick glimpse at their background, Class/March Slot/Roles, an overview of their abilities, and where their Hero Tokens can be found!
Born in Galahd, Libertus joined the Kingsglaive alongside his childhood friend Nyx to fight back against the Niflheim Empire.
March Slot: Infantry
Roles: Paladin, Kingslaive
In Party Encounters, Libertus is a noteworthy Tank that fiercely defends his allies from harm. His mouth does a lot of the talking, using his Goading Strike to pull his enemy’s attention, only to wallop them when they least expect it. His big heart is on display for all with his Limit Break, For Hearth and Home, letting his allies Tech Charge as he shields them from harm.
In War Combat, Libertus provides benefits to Infantry Troops and increases City Defense Troop Attack, Troop Attack, and Troop HP.
How to Obtain Libertus
Libertus Tokens can be found in the following places:
- Daily Deals
- Champion of Eos Event Leaderboard
- Explorer of Eos Event
- Hero Specific Pack (this one time pack appears when you unlock Libertus - grab it while you can!)
After growing up as an orphan, the Kingsglaive are the only family Crowe knows. Libertus often says she is like a little sister to him.
March Slot: Ranged
Roles: Elementalist, Kingslaive
In Party Encounters, Crowe is a fiery Support Hero that heats up friend and foe alike. Her elemental status effects make her a powerhouse that you will want to have on your side. Whether she’s Scorching her enemies to the ground or using her Healcast: Firanga (Limit Break) to take care of her allies, this red-hot Hero leaves the battlefield ablaze.
In War Combat, Crowe provides benefits to Ranged Troops and increases City Attacking Troop Health, Skirmish Troop Health, and Guild Hunt Troop Health.
How to Obtain Crowe
Crowe Tokens can be found in the following places:
- Glaive's Wish Event
- Glaive's Wish Chests (found in Packs and in the Item Shop during Glaive’s Wish Event)
- Hero Specific Pack (this one time pack appears when you unlock Crowe - grab it while you can!)
Saved by King Regis as a child, Nyx repays the debt by serving the Kingsglaive with distinction. His unique ability to wield the King's magic and epic exploits in combat have earned him the moniker of 'hero' among his peers.
March Slot: Cavalry
Roles: Assassin, Kingslaive
In Party Encounters, he is an Attacker Hero that Shocks and Burns his enemies while empowering his allies. His powers are designed with deception in mind, Warping wherever he is needed to make the biggest impact. His Limit Break takes him to the backline of his enemies and he strikes while they aren’t looking. A true Kingsglaive Hero as he takes care of his allies with the skill of the same name, sharing stats and making sure that you are one cohesive unit.
In War Combat, Nyx provides benefits to Cavalry Troops and increases City Defense Troop Health, Throne Attack, and Throne HP.
