Fire Emblem Three Houses Class - All Classes and Requirements

Fire Emblem Three Houses Class - All Classes and Requirements

This is our guide covering every Fire Emblem Three Houses class, including all the various requirements for the classes, and more.

Within Fire Emblem Three Houses, you can unlock different classes for your students and other characters, to help define their combat roles. In this complete guide to each Fire Emblem Three Houses class, we'll be detailing the class requirements, so you know which skills you'll have to level up with each character in order to unlock a new class for them.

Fire Emblem Three Houses Class

At the very beginning of Fire Emblem Three Houses, every student, including the player character, will start out in one of two roles. You'll either be a 'Commoner' or a 'Noble,' but from there everyone can progress into additional classes once you hit level 5.

To acquire a new class for a character, you need to have them undertake a certification exam. These are only available every Sunday, and you'll have to have met certain requirements to undertake certification exams for different classes (more on that below).

Throughout the tables below, we'll be detailing everything there is to know about all the Fire Emblem Three Houses classes. We'll be going over the class name, skill proficiency, certification requirements, and more.

Fire Emblem Three Houses Beginner Classes

These beginner classes can be earned in certification exams once a unit reaches level 5.

You'll note in the tables above there are instances where certain classes require a 'Dark Seal' in order to undertake a certification exam for some classes. Dark Seals are incredibly rare items in Fire Emblem Three Houses, and are only obtained by defeating powerful foes in combat.

One such example is when you first encounter the Death Knight. In the underground section of the Monastery when you first see the Death Knight, he's presented as a mini boss that you can entirely avoid. But if you've got the courage to defeat him, you'll earn a Dark Seal.

If it's more Three Houses content you're after, then USG has everything you could need for the adventure.
