Etie excels with Bows in Fire Emblem Engage. You’ll want to focus all your energy on Etie’s Bow skill, and the best option for her is the Sniper class. The Sniper Advanced Class boosts Etie’s Bow proficiency to S Rank, making her unrivaled in her field. Etie shreds flying enemies with her Bow skills, making her a key ally when fighting Wyvern riders and Pegasus-mounted foes. Give her some distance from opponents, and you’ll make short work of fliers. Try to keep a partner with melee capabilities near Etie so she doesn’t get bullied by combatants up close.

To make Etie even more powerful, you’ll want to outfit her with an Emblem. The best Emblem for Etie is Lyn, a bowman with several melee options. When Etie engages, she’ll have a way to defend herself up close thanks to the Doubles ability, which surrounds her with sword-wielding copies. Lyn also gives more bow abilities like Astra Storm to hit foes from even farther away. The more you increase your bond with Lyn, the more powers you can get.
