  1. Leonie is a fantastic Falcon Knight (you also put Peg Knight as an option so why not Falco?). Of course she’s more inclined to become a horseback unit but flier mobility is good, and she doesn’t really need another weapon than lances (if you want you can still use something else like a bow for instance). Plus, she has great avoid potential, and gets Lancefaire

    On another note, I don’t really think Great Knight is a good class for anyone. It feels like you’re wasting their potential more than anything, to me

    • Hi Kevin! Already added Falcon Knight as a Master class option for Leonie. We agree that the Great Knight class feels underwhelming. Give us time to think it through ????

  2. Surprised that ALL characters are recommended a master.

    It is my firm belief that master tiers, while great, are not essential to a great unit. They provide roughly the same total % in stat increases as advanced. Both advanced and Master classes get access to the +5 damage (weapon)faire ability. Sure master gets a few more but since weapon triangle is not a thing and arts are capped at 3 per unit the value of having multiple weaponfaires is diminished.

    With that rationale I’m surprised assassin Felix is not mentioned. It should succeed at both tiers. He has a relatively high damage, decent speed,dex growth rates. His only weaknesses are defense and resilience. Assassin pretty much negates those last two problems entirely as long as you have another unit in range. Addition his high dex gives him a decent shot at assassinate and his speed should almost always guarantee 4x if he utilizes fist weapons in Assassin form.

    • Hi James! Thank you for sharing us your point of view when it comes to class progression paths.

      We’ll definitely look into Felix as an Assassin ????

    • Hi Mike!

      If you are talking about Reason as a skill requirement. Indeed, he has a low skill proficiency to start with. However, Mortal Savant requires a lower Reason skill proficiency (B+) as compared to Sword (A) which is advantageous to Felix. Reason is also Felix’s budding talent so if you keep on tutoring that skill, it will become his strength later on.

      You still have other progression paths available if you are still not sure. He can go a War Master route since he has a high initial SPD stat next to STR. Bow Knight is also possible but you have a mid-to-low DEX stat to start with.

      As a Mortal Savant, Felix will gain a master ability called Warding Blow. This will help him cover his weakness to magic since he will gain about +6 Magic Resistance when initiating combat. This is advantageous when fighting against magic-user units.

  3. I can’t decide if I like customizable units or characters with pre-set classes/promotions from older games, better. Just seems like It might be a bad idea to try making a character a class they may not be effective at. Sorry for the random comment, just giving my thoughts.

    • We understand your points, Mike. Determining the effectiveness of a character to a specific class is not just based on his skill level. Also, the character’s stats, stat growth, and the quality of combat arts he/she can obtain should also be considered, IMO.

  4. Okay why the hell is Hilda suggested to be a monk/mage/warlock? Thats an awful idea for many reasons, like having a weakness in faith magic, learning no good spells to compete against others on the class, and having a terrible magic and res growth on top of that.
