Posted by: BlueStacks Content Team

Epic Seven is notoriously known for its popular collaborations with huge IPs (Intellectual Properties). One of the most recent examples is the ongoing collaboration between Smilegate’s Epic Seven and the FullMetal Alchemist Brotherhood franchise where 3 unique characters from the FMA universe have joined our heroes in Orbis. Edward Elric, Riza Hawkeye, and Roy Mustang are available as playable characters in Epic Seven with the collaboration. Epic Seven boasts full Live 2D sprites of each hero and stunning animations for their ultimate abilities that look nothing less than a scene from an anime series. Epic Seven is available as a free-to-play title on both the Google Play Store and iOS App Store.

Roy Mustang Awakenings

Awakenings are the best way to provide your heroes with some much-needed base stats. At every level of awakening, the hero gains some bonus stats that increase their raw value, unlike equipment that increases the additive value. Each hero in Epic Seven can be awakened 6 times, with each awakening requiring different elemental runes of different rarities. Awakenings 5 and 6 also require Rare Catalysts and Epic Catalysts. On 3rd awakening, one of the skills of the hero gets upgraded permanently to boost its skill effects. Roy Mustang’s awakenings and requirements are as follows: –

Roy Mustang Memory Imprints

Imprints are essentially extra stats that players can either provide for the specific hero or the whole team ignoring the hero. Imprints can be unlocked when players summon a duplicate copy of the same hero and feed them into the existing hero. For example, if you summon another Roy Mustang from the gacha banners, you can simply feed them into your existing Roy Mustang to unlock Imprints. Imprints come in 2 types – Imprint Concentration and Imprint Release. Imprint Concentration provides additional stats to the hero himself while Imprint Release provides additional stats to heroes on your team at specific positions. Here are the Imprints of Roy Mustang:

Roy Mustang Equipment and Artifact Recommendation

Roy Mustang is a pure damage dealer that excels at dealing AOE-targeted damage while not being able to be 1-shot by enemies. His weakness includes the likes of Seaside Bellona, Summer Break Charlotte, etc. Roy Mustang excels as an executioner as his 3rd ability states it deals more damage the fewer enemies remain on the opponent’s side. Hence, he isn’t exactly what you would take if you want to cleave 1-shot enemies on the 1st turn itself. He should be built purely as a DPS hero. We recommend using the Attack Set/ Critical Hit Rate Set with Critical Hit Damage%, Attack%, and Attack% as main stats on Necklace, Ring, and Boots. Emphasis should be laid down on getting Critical Hit Rate%, Critical Hit Damage%, and Attack% as sub-stats.

Let’s check out the Artifacts that are often used by Roy Mustang: –

  • Ignition Cloth Gloves (5-Star Mage Exclusive Artifact) – Increases Hit Chance by 20% and Attack by 14%. 
  • Tagehel’s Ancient Book (4-Star Artifact) – Receive 20 Souls at the beginning of a stage.

Roy Mustang Team Recommendations

Here are some heroes that excel with Roy Mustang in their team:

  • Auxiliary Lots (4-Star Dark Hero) – Auxiliary Lots is one of the best heroes to take into any team with slow DPS heroes. His 2nd skill increases the combat readiness of any hero on your team by 100% and grants them an Attack Buff to go with it. Essentially, granting them a turn before all enemies. This is crucial for heroes like Roy Mustang that are at risk of getting killed before they even get to take a turn by AOE-targeted damaging attacks. 
  • Challenger Dominiel (4-Star Dark Hero) – Challenger Dominiel is also an amazing combat readiness booster that increases the combat readiness of all heroes on your team. Coupled with heroes that can do an AOE-targeted critical hit, she can increase her own combat readiness by over 50%! Players often use her in cleave teams where they would want to take the first turn before the enemy. Roy Mustang’s AOE-targeted 3rd ability works really well with Challenger Dominiel’s passive ability which increases her combat readiness. Further, she also provides a Critical Hit Rate buff for all team members with her 3rd ability.
