Fire Emblem: Three Houses - Dark Bishop Class


Dark bishops wield devastating dark magic and can equip staves. They can inflict various status ailments, most notably berserk, along with a number of damaging spells. This differentiates the class from warlocks who focus on bombarding enemies with offensive magic. Because of this, dark bishops can be seen as a hybrid of offense and utility.

To change to a dark bishop, a character must have already unlocked the dark mage class.
