Fire Emblem Engage Characters Tier List, Which Are the Best?

When there are so many characters and units in a game like Fire Emblem Engage, it’s pretty natural to have an urge to know that which of these are the best. Characters in Fire Emblem engage can be adored based on their presences in the game or their usefulness. Mostly, gamers want to know about how beneficial or useful a character is in the game.

Sadly, officially, there is no such classification for the characters in Fire Emblem Engage however, we have tried to classify them based on their usefulness and popularity. We have divided FE Engage units into 5 categories starting from Diamond, Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze. Again, this is not a hard coded classification and can vary based on player preference.

Diamond Tier

Following characters have diamond tier capability:

  • Alear
  • Diamant
  • Hortensia
  • Ivy
  • Kagetsu
  • Seadall
  • Veyle

In Diamond cateogry, there are inherently some of the greatest damage-dealing and utility-based heroes in Fire Emblem Engage. Diamant, in his special Class Successor, may use Wrath and Hold Out+++ to be able to deal a high-damage / high-survival unit capable of tanking through most foes. Hortensia and Ivy are fast-moving troops who provide some of the strongest support and magic damage across the board. Kagetsu is a high-damage, high-speed unit with outstanding growth that can attack twice as fast. Seadall lets other troops to attack twice, making him the game’s most useful setup unit. Curious Dance, his skill, can even heal.

Platinum Tier

Following characters have made to our platinum tier:

  • Anna
  • Alcryst
  • Alfred
  • Chloe
  • Fogado
  • Lindon
  • Mauvier
  • Panette
  • Zelkov

Platinum Tier characters and its range have a common theme. Fogado and Alcryst are bow-wielding units who can attack and deal massive damage from a distance. As Calvary troops, Alfred, Chloe, and Mauvier all have amazing mobility. Lindon and Anna are also capable of enormous mobility or range, either as Mage Knights or through the range of their Tomes as Sages. And what about Zelkov? Doesn’t require a promotion, but automatically fills the void left by Yunaka after you reach the mid-to-late game.

Gold Tier

  • Celine
  • Goldmary
  • Jade
  • Jean
  • Lapis
  • Louis
  • Merrin
  • Pandreo
  • Rosado
  • Saphir
  • Timerra
  • Yunaka

Gold tier units are those that are more distinctive but lag behind their more optimised siblings. Celine is overtaken by Ivy, Goldmary by a large number of units, while Jade and Lapis are minor Diamant. And, as much as it bothers me, Merrin lacks the usefulness of Cupido Foagdo or Swordmaster Kagetsu.

Silver Tier

Following players were worthy of being in silver tier:

  • Amber
  • Boucheron
  • Bunet
  • Citrinne
  • Clanne
  • Etie
  • Framme
  • Vander

Every Fire Emblem game introduces us to a few characters that are designed to help us get through the first few chapters before getting benched for good. The characters in Fire Emblem Engage are Clanne, Framme, and Etie. Unfortunately, their unit growth rates do not match those of the later-game forces. The remaining plot is comparable to B-Tier. Many of them are simply outmatched by bigger forces. Why Citrinne rather than Lindwurm Ivy or Sage Anna? Why settle with Etie when Tireur d’elite Alcryst is available? Panette is best promoted to Wolf Knight, but as we’ve seen with Merrin, Wolf Knights fall short when faced with better alternatives.

Bronze Tier

Only one player has made it to the bronze’s list and it’s none other than Merrin.

Naturally, your mileage may vary. Each unit is viable in its own right, and I personally maintained Merrin on my team until the very end of the game, despite the fact that he is far from meta. I still believe he can function well with the appropriate construction.

Choose the troops and buildings that best suit you and your playstyle.
