Fire Emblem Engage continues the long-running turn-based strategy franchise from Nintendo. With new allies and classes to assume, finding out which to pick can be overwhelming. Here we break down the best options for Alcryst, the second prince of Brodia.
Alcryst’s Unique Advanced Class: Tireur d’elite
Alcryst starts as a Lord in Fire Emblem Engage. This young leader of Brodia is exceptional with a bow and even gets an exclusive Advanced Class that lets him shine. Tireur d’elite boosts his aptitude with a bow from B rank to S rank and gives him Luna, a move that offers Alcryst a chance to ignore half of his foe’s Def/Res. The more Dex he has, the more likely it is to trigger.
Recommended Emblem: Lyn
To further boost Alcryst’s effectiveness in battle, you’ll need to outfit him with the correct Emblem. For Alcryst, we recommend using the Lyn Emblem, a master archer that boosts this prince’s already impressive archery.
Each Emblem grants unique user skills as a character’s bond level increases with the ring’s spirit. After level five, players can inherit skills and use them without Lyn’s Emblem equipped. Each of Lyn’s Bond Effects from level one to ten is listed below.

|2||Speed +2||Grants Spd +2.|
|3||Speedtaker||Grants a stacking Spd +2 each time unit initiates combat and defeats a foe. Bonus lasts for the rest of the battle (Max +10)|
|4||Bow Focus 1||Grants Hit +10 at the cost of Ddg -10 when using a bow.|
|5||Skill Inheritance||Unit can inherit this Emblem’s skills|
|6||Bow Prof.||Proficiency with bows. Required for promotion to specific classes.|
|7||Bow Focus 2||Grants Hit +15 data cost of Ddg -10 when using a bow.|
|8||Sword Prof.||Proficiency with swords. Required for promotion to specific classes.|
|9||Speed +3||Grants Spd +3.|
|10||Mani Katti||Divine sword wielded by Emblem Lyn. |
Effective: Cavalry, Armored
While we saw success with Lyn as our Emblem ally, there is no one right way to fight in Fire Emblem Engage. Once you master and inherit Lyn’s skills, we suggest experimenting with other Emblems to see how Alcryst fairs.
