Fire Emblem Engage: Best Advanced Class for Saphir

Add this combat veteran to your army in Engage.

Fire Emblem Engage lets players gather an army to face the forces of an ancient evil, but taking this threat down is no simple task. You’ll need solid units and allies to defeat the Fell Dragon and its forces. If you plan on adding Saphir to your team in Fire Emblem Engage, we suggest getting the best Advanced Class before heading into battle.

The best Advanced Class choice for Saphir is the Warrior class. Because there are several Warrior specializations, select the Axe-focused Warrior, as it works best with this unit. You’ll see an A Rank Axe and a C Rank Bow Proficiency, giving you close-range and long-range options in Fire Emblem Engage.

Recommended Emblem: Leif

To make Saphir a better fighter, you should equip an Emblem ring. The best choice for this fighter is Leif, a well-rounded fighter with access to several weapon types. Adding Leif to Saphir’s kit gives her additional coverage with access to powerful weapons like the Killer Axe. The more you use an Emblem, the higher the rank. Higher ranks mean more skills, so use your Emblem to grab more Bond Effects.
