Fire Emblem: Three Houses - Bishop Class

Icon bishop class

The next tier of the priest class which has full proficiency in faith. Bishops harness the power of white magic and use it to aid allies in battle. While their magic might not be as high as that of warlocks, bishops have access to both offense and support spells. This makes them a well rounded class.


HP Strength Defense Skill
Speed Magic Resistance Movement

Bishops are not suited to be in front of the party or out in the open due to their low defense. On the contrary, you need to place them inthe back or in between your offensive units as they shine at channeling support spells. While they also carry offensive spells, bishops are better off using these as a last resort to pick off weakened foes.

  1. It may be worth your time to leave your dedicated healer as a Bishop instead of upgrading to the Holy Knight Master class, as this is the only other class in the game with a Healing bonus. Priest gets +5 healing, while Bishop gets +10, as well as twice as many available casts. This makes Bishops with access to Physic and/or Fortify more potent than a Holy Knight if you need purely healing.

    The Holy Knight has better growths in Def and Res, with worse growths in Spd compared to a Bishop, as well as overall better Class Stat bonuses. Bishops will however maintain a higher Magic and Res bonus (+1 more for both) over the static bonus granted for being Holy Knight.

    If your healer is able to drop large enough heals from a good Magic stat, or your team requires the potential damage that Holy Knight allows (+5 damage on Offensive White Magic such as Nosferatu or Seraphim), then would I recommend choosing the mounted class over the other.

    The other case is when the character does not learn any healing White Magic after Nosferatu, such as Lysithea, Manuella, and Gilbert, all of which do not benefit from +10 healing outside of the basic Heal spell.)

    Any character who learns Physic is worth considering leaving as a Bishop, as the range far outscales the 7 Movement that Holy Knight has for reaching a target to heal them.

    • Hi Regarel!

      Thank you for sharing this information on deciding which characters should stay as a bishop class or not.
