Beginner’s Inside Scoop to Astrals

Which Astral will you use to dominate EOS?

Astrals, also known as The Six, are summoned to help you protect Eos. These cosmic figures are known for their indication of their powers from the planet of Eos. Of course, Noctis then forges a pact with them to help complete his prophecy as the one true king.

The Astrals then went out of their ways to protect Eos with their unique abilities. For this reason, they are worshipped as Gods and Goddesses. The Hexatheon’s Blessing, the book of Cosmology, mentions:Titan, the Archaean, steadfast as stone. Ramuh, the Fulgurian, sharp as lightning. Shiva, the Glacian, gentle as snow. Leviathan, the Hydraean, relentless as tides. Bahamut, the Draconian, unbending as iron. Ifrit, the Infernian, fickle as fire. Since time immemorial, they have watched over Eos.”

Please read on below to find out how and where to get your Astrals. Mainly where all their boosts are listed to support your Empire to greater lengths!

Hero Mastery Skills

Now, seriously, who does not love Hero Mastery Skills? I love them, especially the passiveness of it. The fact that you can have ANY Hero active and the boosts still apply? My favorite thing about Mastery Skills is that it is similar to Research. Your opponent not knowing what there is. Making it intimating to your whether you are an Attacker, Defender, or Trapping. Girl, sign me up!

Hence here are some Hero Mastery Skills that can help your Astrals.

For example, your Hero Veteran Gladiolus aids Dark Astral Attack as well as Dark Leviathan’s Attack.

Gentiana boosts Extreme Dark Shiva Infusion, Extreme Dark Astral Armor/Attack Massacre, Mirror Hero Gentiana, in addition to Dark Astral. Make sure to check out her Limit Breaks as you can apply them to your gear. The Limit Breaks are Dark Astral Attack I as well as Armor I.

Your Hero Veteran Prompto benefits Dark Astral Attack while Noctis stands by your side, boosting Dark Astral Attack in addition to Dark Bahamut Attack.

King Noctis increases your Astral March Capacity being able to send an extra Astral into your marches. Ardyn increases Dark Astral Attack and Mirror Hero Ardyn: Titan Bonus.

Your Hero King Regis pushes Dark Astral Attack, Titan Attack, and Mirror Hero King Regis: Bahamut to assist you in battle. Cindy then helps your Mirror Hero Cindy: Ramuh’s Attack.

Ravus benefits your Dark Astral Attack as well as Ramuh Attack even though Gladiolus has a bonus against the Astrals. Ignis’ Mirror Hero Ignis: Ifrit increases his Attack. Last but not least, the beautiful Luna aids your Astrals with Dark Astral Attack, Dark Shiva Attack, as well as Mirror Hero Luna: Shiva.

Power of Kings/Queens

The Power of Kings and Power of Queens are similar to Mastery Skills; they apply no matter which Hero used. Make sure to take advantage of the power you desire in the direction of your gameplay. Just like Mastery Skills, it does not affect their potential, making it unpredictable as well.

Power of Kings

The Heroes have the same boost in their Power of Kings Skill Tree. Noctis, Ignis, Gladiolus, Prompto, King Noctis, as well as King Regis boost your Mirror Hero: Ignis, Mirror Hero: Regis, as well as Dark Astral Attack Bonuses. Yes, they will stack with one another, so be sure to utilize that.

Noctis boosts your Bahamut while King Regis aids Titan’s attack. King Noctis expands Astrals even further with Dark Astral II. Then, in turn, Gladiolus assists Leviathan while Ignis helps Ifrit. Last but not least, Prompto boosting Ramuh.

Power of Queens

All five of the Heroes in your Power of Queen’s Skill Tree have the same Mirror Hero boosts and an overall Dark Astral boost as well. It is important to remember that these Mirror Hero skills stack with each other. Gentiana, Iris, Cindy, Aranea, and Luna have Mirror Hero Luna, Mirror Hero Cindy, Mirror Hero Iris, as well as Mirror Hero Gentiana boost. Which, in turn, aids your Astrals.

The Queens all also have their unique Astral advances individually to help strengthen the Astrals even further. Your Hero Gentiana benefits Dark Shiva’s Attack. Iris then supports Dark Leviathan’s Attack while Cindy aids Ramuh. Aranea will stand by your side, boosting Titan as well as Ifrit’s Attack. And last but not least, Luna has Dark Astral II in her Power of Queens Skill Tree.

Mirror Heroes

Mirror Heroes are the reflections of your Heroes, similar to Commanders. Make sure to Research them to strengthen them as they will benefit your Empire in just about any way possible! Your Mirror Heroes boost your Troops and Astrals when sent in marches to attack or stand by your side when defending your Empire upon being attacked.

Mirror Heroes DO stack on a limited basis

Your Mirror Hero Luna will help Shiva while your Mirror Hero Ignis then will benefit Ifrit. Make sure to use Mirror Hero Cindy supports Ramuh as he unleashes his power. Your Mirror Hero Iris boosts Leviathan’s Attack while Mirror Hero Adryn guides the mighty Titan. Back your Bahamut up by using your Mirror Hero King Regis. Lastly, your Mirror Hero Gentiana promotes Dark Astrals in general.

Tips and Tricks

  • First and foremost, your Astrals will not die. Once their HP depletes, use a full health Talisman or wait for them to replenish on their own.
  • Astrals will only regenerate HP when they are inside your Empire.
  • It is important to remember that Astrals can be reskilled for FREE anytime. Be sure to take advantage of this opportunity, especially if you are still early on in the Astral world.
  • Astrals will slow down your Marches no matter what you do. Nothing will help. If this gets updated, please give me a shout out because we all want to know this! Sure we all have March Speed Ups out the butt, t let’s be honest here. It gets annoying having to press the Speed Up button 187 and a half times.
  • If your enemy Empire has Anti-Scout on, then send a March with an Astral or two to obtain a Battle Report. Assuming your Astrals are strong enough not to be killed, then this will show you what their Empire has. Which will then help you determine whether you can not only handle an attack but also informs you what to send? 
  • Unlocking Level 4 Astral Shrine will unlock Multi-Astral Defense. This meaning that ALL Astrals that are at home Empire and reinforcing Astrals will be defending your honor. 
  • Level 5 Astral Shrine will unlock an Extra Astral in your March.
  • Also, Aeon Level 10 Gems has a 2,289% Astral Attack boost. Now, if you are in the Dark World, then I do not recommend using this as it will not benefit you.
  • Some of the Mirror Heroes strengthen Astrals significantly.
