Fire Emblem: Three Houses - Cavalier Class


Cavaliers are mounted warriors that boast very good movement, only outclassed by pegasus knights. This allows them to easily cut off the escape routes of enemies or to halt advances. Cavaliers are also excellent at taking out ranged attackers thanks to their exceptional mobility. They are not, however, effective against strong melee units because of their average combat performance. Cavaliers can either use swords or lances in battle.


HP Strength Defense Skill
Speed Magic Resistance Movement

Cavaliers are mostly noted for their movement, all other stats being average or subpar. They are good at picking off low HP units such as archers or mages when the enemy has not yet set up their formations. Pitting them against brigands and other units of similar strength, however, is not advised.
