Fire Emblem Engage: Best Advanced Class for Kagetsu

This master swordsman will make short work of any enemy.

In Fire Emblem Engage, you can create an army of your own using over 30 units. Each unit has strengths and weaknesses and kits with special powers. Kagetsu, the Elusian swordsman, is one of the most powerful units in his field, provided you pair him with the best Advanced Class possible. See what gives this fighter his edge in this turn-based strategy title.

Kagetsu is a master with swords, so you’ll want to choose a class emphasizing this weapon and its proficiency. The Swordmaster Advanced Class works best with Kagetsu. With this class and unique moves like Run Through (attack and appear on the other side of the selected enemy, provided the adjacent space is free), Kagetsu becomes an oppressive attacker that makes short work of most fighters. Just keep him away from lance users as they counter his weapon and break his stance when striking first.

Recommended Emblem: Marth

To make Kagetsu even stronger, you should equip an Emblem ring. Emblem rings give unique boosts to those wearing them. Because Kagetsu is a Swordmaster, he’ll want an Emblem that focuses on sword skills. Marth is the perfect partner for this unit, as he offers a litany of abilities than improve Kagetsu’s capabilities.

The more you fight with an Emblem, the higher your Bond with that Emblem gets. Each level brings you new Bond Effects, so battle with Marth to access these abilities. Make sure to hit level five, unlocking the ability to inherit skills, even when your unit isn’t wearing an Emblem. Check the chart below for Marth’s Bond Effects list from levels one to ten.

Once you’ve mastered Marth, we suggest trying other Emblem rings on Kagetsu. Give different options a try; you never know how an Emblem will feel until you try it out.
