Irreplaceable Elements in Fire Emblem: Three Houses
As a novice professor, you are bound to make decisions which influence the majority of Three Houses’ minor story trajectory or overall progression. Permanent events are one time choices that can’t be taken back in the playthrough. Although some choices are a matter of preference, others play a vital role upon reaching milestones in the story.
When starting a new game, you are prompted to select your gender. You can select between a male or female avatar. After finalizing your gender, you can’t go back to change it again.
Name and Birthday
Similar to your gender, you can customize your character’s name and birthday. Byleth is the character’s default name, but don’t let that deter you from assigning one that better fits your preference. After setting your name and birthday, you can’t change it. Similar to other characters in the story, there will be a special event held when the day falls on your birthday.
Player’s Chosen House
One of the new features in Three Houses is the choice of which house you’ll represent. There are three houses to choose from, each of them offering a unique selection of students and faculty. You can view the characters of each house to aid in your selection. However, after meeting certain conditions, you’ll be able to recruit other characters from other houses. Bear in mind that some units cannot be obtained at all.
Permadeath in Classic Mode
Other than the difficulty setting, you’ll be asked to select one of two game modes. In Classic Mode, there is little room for error since if one of your characters die during the battle, you’ll lose them for the entire game.
As a professor, you have a finite amount of activity points to spend during your free time. You can allocate some points to sit down and share a meal with your invited student and/or fellow faculty member. When starting out, you’ll only have a few activity points to spend, so choose wisely.
You can’t reallocate the levels gained by your students after a tutoring session. Plan carefully since it’s imperative to choose stats that will be beneficial in later encounters.
