Fire Emblem Engage lets players compile an army of over 30 unique units. Each fighter has different strengths and weaknesses, making class builds crucial to a unit’s effectiveness in combat. Before you add Zelkov to your team in Fire Emblem Engage, make sure you see what class works best for him.
Zelkov’s Special Class: Thief
Zelkov, like Yunaka, is a Thief. The Thief is a Special Class exclusive to specific units in Fire Emblem Engage. Thieves can only use the Knife as their weapon but offer an S Rank Proficiency with their sole tool. You can use the Knife up close or at mid-range in battle. So analyze your combat encounters and see which approach works best for Zelkov.

Recommended Emblem: Byleth
To make your unit more powerful in Fire Emblem Engage, you should outfit them with an Emblem. Each Emblem offers a unique bonus, amplifying stats for the user. Because Thieves are a special class, it’s a bit tougher to pin down a good fit. We suggest Byleth since he adapts to his user, raising the stats they use to be effective. You can see the list of Bond Effects for Byleth from levels one to ten below.

To raise your Bond level in Fire Emblem Engage, use the Emblem in battle. The more you use an Emblem, the higher your rank will climb. After you hit Bond Effect level five, you can inherit skills from your Emblem to use when it isn’t equipped, so don’t forget to do so once you hit this Bond level.
