King Regis – A New Hero Reigns

King Regis brings us many useful skills

King Regis Lucis Caelum CXIII. Father to Noctis and the 113th ruler in the line of Lucis, is the newest hero released to us in FFXV:ANE. But really, isn’t this guy dead? I would love to see a chibi ghost hero running around Eos hitting the monsters. That would definitely be a sight to see!

His hero tree has mostly monster hunting abilities, with a few combat abilities at the bottom. Because of that, it seems that his Hero Mastery skills will benefit us the most. But his Mastery Skills are a little different. For one, he has Noctis skills called “Heir Affinity” and King Noctis Skills called “Legacy Affinity”. You can benefit from these Mastery Skills when either one of those heroes is active. A little boost from dear father, isn’t that sweet? This could mean Noctis will get new levels soon. Unless we are able to get the other heroes up to 300. I think they feel left out, that’s so sad.

Anyway, let’s take a look at what awesome abilities our new hero brings to us.

Hero Skills Tree

Not much here, but that should change in the future when new levels are released. With that, remember that VIP 141 allows you to remove skill points without using a hero skill reset. So you can change any of these skills at any time.

I would just like to note that the first skill is unlockable at hero level 53, but the others below start at hero level 1. So, be sure to go past that “first” skill to unlock all the rest so you don’t miss out on his abilities!

King Regis Skills
Hero Skills Tree

Monster Tactics: Dark Monsters: Unlocks the ability to attack Dark Monsters while King Regis is active. Requires King Regis hero level 53. Considering you don’t need any medals until 50, that unlocking Dark Monsters will be quite easy.

Hero Attack: Increases your hero’s attack against a monster. Unlocks at King Regis hero level 1.

Hero Critical Hit: Increases the chance to deal a critical hit per attack up to a max of 5%. Unlocks at King Regis hero level 1. This seems like a small number, but it adds up with all the other critical hit chances you have in your gear and gems.

Hero Streak: Increases your hero’s attack streak against a monster per attack up to a max of
+2. Unlocks at King Regis hero level 1.

Hero Critical Damage: Increases the damage dealt by critical hits against a monster up to a max of 50%. Unlocks at King Regis hero level 1.

Max MP: Increases King Regis’ maximum hero MP. Starts at 33.33%. Unlocks at King Regis hero level 1. This doesn’t seem to boost it quite as much as the other heroes’ skills, but this is unlocked at level 1 and the others start at 200.

Dark Troop Armor with Hero: Increases your Dark Troop armor with hero up to a max of 3,300%. Unlocks at King Regis hero level 1.

Dark Troop HP with Hero: Increases your Dark Troop HP with hero up to a max of 2,525%. Unlocks at King Regis hero level 1.

Dark Troop Attack with Hero: Increases your Dark Troop attack with hero up to a max of 5,000%. Unlocks at King Regis hero level 1.

Hero Mastery Skills

These skills are passive boosts. As long as they are skilled you get this boost with ANY hero active. Except for the few that are only available with either Noctis or King Noctis active. The skills are varied with Dark Neutral City boosts, Affinity boosts, and Limit Breaks for enchantments. Furthermore, his abilities are rounded off with some combat boosts. That being said, his Mastery Skills don’t start until hero level 50, so you’ll wait a little bit before being able to utilize them.

Neutral City Lucky Loot: Increases the chance of getting more loot from attacking Neutral Cities up to a max of +10. Requires King Regis hero level 50. I wonder if the +10 means ten more sets of loot, or if there is something new of which we will get 10 more? Time will tell…

Dark Neutral City Extreme Armor Massacre: Reduces entire Dark Neutral City Dark Troop armor bonuses by a percent, up to a max of 75%. Requires King Regis hero level 52. Does not apply to actual player’s Citadels.

Dark Neutral City Extreme HP Massacre: Reduces entire Dark Neutral City Dark Troop HP bonuses by a percent, up to a max of 75%. Requires King Regis hero level 51. Does not apply to actual player’s Citadels.

Dark Neutral City Extreme Attack Massacre: Reduces entire Dark Neutral City dark attack bonuses by a percent, up to a max of 75%. Requires King Regis hero level 50. Does not apply to actual player’s Citadels.

Dark Extreme Armor Massacre: Reduces entire enemy Dark Troop armor bonuses by a percent, up to a max of 75%. Requires King Regis hero level 53. This seems to be similar to Armor Shredding. 75% is a huge percent taken away!

Dark Extreme HP Massacre: Reduces entire enemy Dark Troop HP bonuses by a percent, up to a max of 75%. Requires King Regis hero level 54. Also, this looks to be an HP Shredding ability.

Dark Extreme Attack Massacre: Reduces entire enemy Dark Troop attack bonuses by a percent, up to a max of 75%. Requires King Regis hero level 55.  Can we say Attack Shredding? 75% is a lot!

Heir Affinity: Noctis I: When Noctis is active, reduces entire Neutral City Dark Troop Armor by a percent, up to a max of 25%. Requires King Regis hero level 50. Noctis will replace Ravus as the Neutral City attacker with the Dark World.

Heir Affinity: Noctis II: When Noctis is active, reduces entire Neutral City Dark Troop Armor by a percent, up to a max of 25%. Requires King Regis hero level 50.

Heir Affinity: Noctis III: When Noctis is active, reduces entire Neutral City Dark Troop attack bonuses by a percent, up to a max of 25%. Requires King Regis hero level 52.

Limit Break: Monster Attack I: Unlocks Arcanaeum Limit Break Enchantment level 1, which provides monster attack. Requires King Regis hero level 54. A limit break on monster attacks, this is interesting.

Limit Break: Dark Neutral City Attack I: Unlocks Arcanaeum Limit Break Enchantment level 1, which provides Dark Neutral City attack. Requires King Regis hero level 69. Combine this with his other Dark Neutral City attack boosts and Noctis, and you’ve got a winner!

**Notes**

I was unable to see the max abilities on some of these skills, but I will update when I find them. His Mastery Skills seem to be pretty OP and should help whichever hero you decide to use in combat. Furthermore, he boosts all types of combat. From defense to Neutral Cities, you can rely on these skills to get you what you need.

Useful in the Order

Additionally, the king of Lucis has some great boosts when you add him to the Order of Heroes. At level 100 you get these bonuses:

  • 3,300% Dark Troop Armor with Hero
  • 2,525% Dark Troop HP with Hero
  • 5,000% Dark Troop Attack with Hero

This is including the boosts that the Order you place him in gives you. Certainly, his great Mastery Skills and Order of Hero boosts is because he is technically not ALIVE… (sorry if this is a SPOILER).

So, our newest hero brings us an assortment of skills to use every day. Also, since he boosts both Noctis and King Noctis with some of his Mastery Skills, we bring new life to older heroes. Maybe Noctis could boost his dear Luna, his betrothed with his next update?
