Character Review

Black Prince Edward is a a powerful fire-based melee attacker, his sweeping attacks can handle multiple enemies at once, making him a crowd-control menace. Edward truly shines as a main damage dealer (DPS) thanks to his potent self-buffing skills that significantly elevate his own damage output. This fiery prince is a valuable asset on the path to conquering bosses.


Edward's ultimate skill ignites his sword and body in flames, unleashing fiery devastation on his foes. This fiery assault deals high Fire damage and grants him the Harbinger of Flames effect. Harbinger of Flames is a two-fold buff, enhancing both his normal, strong, and dash attacks, while also boosting the damage of his normal and signature skills by a significant 40% Attack bonus. This fiery empowerment lasts for 15 seconds, allowing Edward to dominate the battlefield.

Extending the Inferno: Signature Skill Synergy

Edward's signature skill extends the fiery fury even further. This skill launches a blade-shaped projectile that deals Fire damage and leaves behind a trail of Flames of Judgement. Enemies unfortunate enough to come into contact with these flames suffer from a burning status effect, dealing additional damage over time for 3 seconds.

Red Duke Andrei is actually good with him

To maximize Edward's scorching potential, consider pairing him with characters who can further amplify his fire-based onslaught. Red Duke Andrei is a prime example. Andrei's signature skill, Blazing Pillar, weakens enemy defenses against Fire attacks, making them even more susceptible to Edward's fiery wrath. This strategic team composition allows Edward to unleash his full potential as a devastating force.

Recommended Build

Best Weapon for Black Prince Edward

To maximize Edward's fiery output, equip him with the ideal weapon. The 5-star weapon, Discipline of Conflagration, is a perfect choice. This weapon synergizes beautifully with Edward's Harbinger of Flames effect. After using a unique skill, both Attack Power and Attack Speed increase, allowing you to capitalize on the enhanced damage from Flame Harbinger.

If the 5-star weapon is out of reach, the 4-star Baphomera is an excellent alternative. Baphomera offers a defensive advantage by enabling you to deploy a shield when hit, improving your survivability without relying solely on tank characters. This weapon is also ideal for free-to-play players, as it can be obtained through event reward selection tickets.

The Perfect Relic for Edward

The ideal relic for Edward is the "Last Royal of Stormhold" set. This relic set significantly enhances Edward's fire damage, boosting both his skills and normal/strong attacks. However, acquiring this relic requires reaching Adventure Level 6. For players at Adventure Level 5 or below, the "Hellfire Executioner" relic serves as a suitable alternative.


Black Prince Edward is a scorching force to be reckoned with in ASTRA: Knights of Veda. With his fiery attacks, potent self-buffs, and flexible team compositions, Edward melts through enemies with ease. Equipping him with the recommended weapon and relic further enhances his devastating potential. Based on our comprehensive tier list, Black Prince Edward undeniably deserves to be an SS-tier character! Think about it... He can clear out small fries fast, he's a reliable main damage dealer and he makes Andrei cool.
