The best option for Goldmary in Fire Emblem Engage is the Hero Advanced Class. The Hero class gives Goldmary an A Rank for proficiency with Swords and a B Rank with Lances. While Goldmary is powerful up close, she is just as viable from range thanks to her prowess with the lances she can chuck at foes. She’s excellent against slow enemies and those without heavy armor plating, so pit her against those foes, sending a mage with her to tackle any enemies with resistance to physical attacks.

To make Goldmary even more potent in battle, you’ll need to outfit her with an Emblem. During our playthrough, we found the Eirika Emblem to be an excellent pairing for Goldmary. Eirika’s kit focuses on improving Sword and Lance skills while granting improved Dodge stats to her partner.

You’ll get several new weapons to use when fighting with Eirika as an ally, giving her user an enhanced versatility against an array of unique enemy types. Once users level up their Bond with this Emblem, they can use new skills. The more you use an Emblem in battle, the faster it ranks up, so keep employing Eirika’s attacks and moves. You can see the list of Bond Effects from levels one to ten below.

Once you hit level five, you can learn to use each Bond skill without a ring on your unit. We suggest using the rings until at least level five, so you can start putting skills on each of your units.

If you’d like to use an Emblem that focuses more on the Sword skill, we suggest Marth or Lucina, which each boost Sword user stats. Make sure to try out other Emblem combinations as you play to see what works best for you!
