How to Change Your Party in Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes

The game is accurately titled Hundred Heroes for a reason, and that’s because there are over 100 heroes to recruit around the world. Some of them will go to your party and assist in battle, and the others can work in your town.

With so many options for heroes to fight beside you, each with their own unique abilities, you’ll want the chance to switch things up as you please. There are two main ways to do that:

Ymir – Eltisweiss or HQ

Before the battle against Chappel, you can head to the Inn in Eltisweiss and speak to Ymir to switch your party. After the battle, once you establish the HQ, Ymir will be available on the first floor for you to change formations.

  • Image of HQ with Ymir circled

Once you find Ymir in those locations, speaking to him will allow you to choose the option to “Form Party.” Here you can see the list of all available heroes to place in your party, as well as the heroes already in the party. Certain characters, like Nowa, will be required characters that you cannot remove. Everyone else can be placed as you please in front, rear, and support positions.

Save Points – Cassandra Support

Alternatively, you can change party formations at Save Points if Cassandra is placed in one of your Support slots. She gives you the option to change your party without speaking to Ymir. This comes in handy if you want to make quick changes while in a dungeon or outside location and can’t return to Ymir.

You unlock Cassandra after the battle with Chappel once you leave Eltisweiss to retreat to the abandoned castle HQ. After that, you can place her in your Support role to reap her beneficial ability.

Best Party Formations in Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes

If you’re wondering about the best way to organize your party, there are a few tips and tricks I can give you to help you decide. Here are some pointers to keep in mind:

  1. First, you’ll want to take into consideration each hero’s range. Some heroes have short range, while others have medium to long. All short-ranged heroes will need to be placed in the Front slots of your party for them to perform an attack. Medium to long-range heroes can comfortably fill the Rear slots.
  2. You’ll always want at least one healer in your party at all times. Even though you can use items to heal, it’s better to have a character that focuses entirely on healing and supporting the rest of the team. This can be anyone like Francesca, Marin, Zabi, etc. And you’ll want to place them in one of the Rear positions.
  3. Heroes with the Defense title are better to place in the Front lines since they will tank more damage than other characters and protect the rest of the team as well.

Other than those pointers, it comes down to each hero’s level and abilities. It’s a good idea to have a variety of different skills at your party at the same time. For example, one character is really good at defense, one that focuses on healing, one that focuses on magic, one that’s super speed-focused, etc. That way, you’ll be ready for anything, whether you decide to Fight or Auto Battle.
