Fire Emblem Engage: Best Advanced Class for Timerra

This heir to the throne is a powerful combatant, provided you get the right class.

Fire Emblem Engage allows players to recruit and amass an army. With over 30 characters on your side, you’ll have plenty of options when customizing units. Along your journey, you’ll ally with most of the world’s royalty, including Timerra, the Princess of Solm. Find out how to make the most of this halberd-wielding hero by picking the suitable Advanced Class for her.

Timerra’s Unique Advanced Class: Picket

Like many other units in Fire Emblem Engage, Timerra has a unique class that only she can use. The Picket class focuses exclusively on Lance mastery. With S-Rank Lance capabilities, Timerra can attack foes at close and long range. While you won’t have many options in terms of weapon type, you’d be hard-pressed to find someone who uses a halberd quite like Timerra.

To make Timerra even more robust, you’ll need to outfit her with an Emblem. Luckily, she’s the guardian of Ike’s Emblem, the best option for her. Ike’s Emblem boosts Atk and Def for his partner, halving all incoming damage. Because Timerra’s survivability isn’t the best on her own, Ike gives her the boost she needs to survive most attacks.

The longer a unit uses an Emblem, the higher its level will get. Each level grants Emblem users access to new abilities or Bond Effects. Reach level five, and your unit can inherit these practical skills and use them even without the Emblem equipped. You can see the skills from Ike’s ring from levels one to ten below, along with info on each of these Bond Effects.
