What are Fire Emblem Engage classes?

As with previous Fire Emblem games and many other RPGs, Fire Emblem Engage classes dictate the playing styles and abilities of each unit. Every class has its own weaknesses, strengths, and specific weapon proficiencies, so picking a team with the right classes to counter enemies is integral if you want to come out victorious.

How do I promote Fire Emblem Engage classes?

You can promote a character’s class when they reach level ten. When you want to promote a class to a higher tier, you need to use one Master Seal – a material you can purchase from in-game vendors.

How do I change Fire Emblem Engage classes?

If you ever feel the need for a switch-up, you can change a character’s class by using a Second Seal. As with previous games and the Master Seals you need for promotions, you can purchase Second Seals from in-game vendors. Note that you can only change a character’s class to one that shares the same proficiency.
