Veteran Prompto Battles the Darkness

Unlock New Abilities with the Newest Hero, Veteran Prompto

Our newest hero in FFXV: ANE is Veteran Prompto. Worn, but not weary, he helps battle the Darkness alongside King Noctis. His skills boost the attack, HP, and armor stats of just about every Dark Troop type you have.

You will find him extremely useful in the Guild Adventure Hall since he is the hardest hitter that we have right now. With 800k% Dungeon HP bonus, 2.5M% Dungeon Attack bonus, and 15k% Dungeon Healing bonus, you will lead your guild to victory in the Guild Adventure Halls. Read on to find out just how beefed up Veteran Prompto’s abilities are with your Dark Troops.

Veteran Prompto Hero Skills Overview

Looking at his Hero Skills Tree, it starts like the previous heroes that have been released in the Dark World. With the Monster attack abilities and the Max MP boost of 300% when fully skilled. Also, you will see on the top of his Hero Skills Tree is the Dark Monsters attack unlock. This will make you able to hit the ever-popular level, 9 Realm Bosses. So don’t forget to go back up when your Veteran Prompto is level 40.

At level 25, you will be able to unlock the first Dungeon Dark Bonus. This is what makes him a beast in the Dungeon.

But his Tree doesn’t stop there. Further down you will see the Dark Troops boosts that will help you in offense or defense. Along with Astral Attack and Mount Attack, he will assist you in your battles.

His Hero Mastery Skills seem to be a bit similar to the bottom of his Hero Skills Tree with the Troop boosts. But like his younger counterpart Prompto, he also boosts rally attacks. Furthermore, you will see a march size and Mirror Hero: Veteran Prompto boosts. 

Feel free to play around with his Skills Trees since you can buy resets in the gold store at any time, even if you don’t have any on hand. This feature is pretty useful, in my opinion, since the game is ever-changing and you will want to be able to set your heroes perfectly.

Hero Skills Summary

As you can see, a lot of his skills are available as soon as you unlock Veteran Prompto. This makes him a great asset even at a lower level. But you probably won’t keep him at a lower level for long since there are many ways to collect his hero exp and medals. The ways that I can recall so far are in the Guild Adventure Hall, many different events, and even in the Realm of Heroes in the Prompto Loot Tiles. Because of how easy they are to find, you should start gathering as much as you can, even if you don’t have him unlocked yet. This will give you a nice head start on your journey to greatness.

Veteran Prompto Hero Mastery Skills Overview

Unlocking his Mastery Skills will give you almost a billion more troops in your march with the first skill maxed out. More troops=more kills! Or maybe you just want to gather faster, a larger march will help tremendously. Next, you will find that most of his Mastery Skills look to be a replica of his Hero Skills. This means your Veteran Prompto stats will be doubled with him active. But the nice thing about the Mastery Skills is that they are passive and will apply no matter which hero you have active. So if you use another hero for their abilities, you will still gain a good boost in stats from Veteran Prompto.

His last skills will boost his Mirror Hero, as long as that troop is present in battle. One increases your Mount attack by 12.5M%, and the other Debuffs enemy Airships by 5M%. This will help when someone is trying to dive-bomb your Guardians.

Skills Overview

Veteran Prompto has a lot of overlapping skills that you will find useful in offense or defense. Not only from the similar abilities in both the Hero Skills and Mastery Skills trees but with the stats boosts that affect more than one thing at a time. For example, the rally stats boosts will apply to all troops in a rally. The rally will also get the boosts from Dark Troops, Elemental Troops, and Mercenary Troops abilities. Then you have the Mirror Hero: Veteran Prompto abilities that add to the research done in the University.

Veteran Prompto is Useful Everywhere

Just about everything you can do in the game, Veteran Prompto will make it a lot easier to do. He is the hardest hitter in the Guild Adventure Hall as of the date this article was written. He offers march size increases that not only make it easier to attack, but gathering will be so much faster.

The increased rally capacity and march size bonuses make offensive marches much more powerful than ever before. Then you have the Juggernaut and Mercenary boosts as well as Enemy Airship debuffs that will buff your defense. Don’t forget his Monster hunting abilities and the fact that he can attack level 9 monsters, too!
