The power of the Royals has come to FFXV: ANE in a third skill tree for many of your Heroes. The Power of Kings and Power of Queens give additional boosts for your Empire with a plethora of skilling options.

What is the Power of the Kings and Power of Queens?

These are additional skilling option under the Skill Tree section of your Hero. Not all Heroes have this option yet, but more are being added regularly.

How do I skill them?

Using the powers of royalty requires special items available in events and the pack store.

Power of Queens

In order to skill the Power of Queens, you must first use Power of Queens Unlock Medals to unlock Level 1 for ability points to spend skilling. Once you have done that, use Power of Queens Upgrade Medals. As you unlock new levels, more ability points will be given to you to spend on skilling.

Power of Kings

The same theory holds for the Power of Kings, but you will be using Power of Kings materials instead of Power of Queens (of course).

Who has these powers and what do they do?

Let’s take a look at each available Heroes’ skill powers under Power of the King/Queen. These skills work like Mastery Skills. In other words, they are always active no matter which Hero you have on, and the boosts are stackable.

Power of Queens

There are both Universal skills and skills relevant to each Hero. The Universal skills and are as follows;

  • Vassal City Troop Attack
  • Vassal City Troop Armor
  • Vassal City Troop Health
  • Dark Troop/Merc/Elemental Attack
  • Dark Troop/Merc/Elemental Armor
  • Dark Troop/Merc/Elemental Health
