Fire Emblem: Three Houses - Walkthrough and Strategy Guide

What are Dark Seals?

Dark seals are unique certification exam seals that allow a character to unlock the dark mage class, a powerful offensive spellcaster. A character that changes to dark mage will be able to upgrade to a dark bishop later, an even more powerful version of the class.

How to Get Dark Seals

You can get a dark seal by defeating Death Knight in these particular chapters:

An alternative way of acquiring dark seals is to have a Thief unit and steal the dark seal when the Death Knight is already weak. Note that it is important to have a higher speed stat than Death Knight to be able to steal the dark seal from him first. Otherwise, you will need to take him out. Be warned that Death Knight is a formidable foe with strong melee and magic attacks, so defeating him will be a challenge.

  1. It’s also possible to steal one from the Death Knight in the Chapter 6 mission. Hard to do but if you steal it, then kill the last enemy excluding the Death Knight, you can manage it. That’s how I did it anyway
