Fire Emblem Engage Class Guide

Fire Emblem Engage Classes Screenshot

You will want to change Class as you continue to progress through the storyline in Fire Emblem Engage. Once a unit reaches Level 10, you will have the chance to use a Master Seal to promote it to an Advanced Class.

This is important as Advanced Classes allow your units to become more powerful – boosting their stats while granting access to new weapons and skills. You are also free to experiment with classes in the same tier, for which you can choose to use a Second Seal on your unit.

To change a unit’s class, press the + Button to open the in-game menu, head to your Inventory, choose whichever character you which to promote and then select Change Class.

Units can’t freely change to any class that they wish, however. Each unit starts with “innate proficiencies” – weapons with which they have the strongest potential – but they can learn new weapon proficiencies from building their Bond Level with Emblems. This means that through your continued progression in the game’s storyline, you will have the potential to promote your units into an otherwise unreachable Advanced or Special Class.

Warning: Please be aware that the list below will contain story-related spoilers related to the characters that you can recruit, and therefore carries the risk that it could ruin Fire Emblem Engage’s many twists and turns if you are still on your first playthrough.
