Skill Inheritance Guide

Thank you for printing this page from to come back to check for updates to this guide and much more content for Fire Emblem Engage

Skills is an integral part of Fire Emblem Engage’s combat system. They come in different varieties, from standard combat skills, passive stat boosts, or others that produce beneficial effects based on the user’s actions or situation. In our Skill Inheritance Guide, we will discuss how this feature works and what skills to consider early on.

Fire Emblem Engage is a latest installation for the critically-acclaimed Fire Emblem series, offering a fresh approach to the tried-and tested tactical, turn-based JRPG formula fans have seen in recent years. Players are treated with the return of the Triangle System, weapons with no durability, and of course, the fresh new Emblem/Bond Ring mechanic.



Emblems not only provide powerful stat boosts to their partner units but they also allow their partners to inherit some of their powerful skills. These skills range from powerful offensive attacks, passive stat boosts, weapon proficiency, weapon mastery, or other support effects. Skill Inheritance is enabled once a unit reaches Bond LV5 with an Emblem. Take note that this is only applicable to the current Emblem; this means that if you have at least Bond LV5 with Marth, you can only inherit his skills. If you want to inherit skills from Celica but the unit is only at Bond LV1 with her, you need to reach Bond LV5 with her first.

After reaching the required bond level, the unit doesn’t learn the skill immediately; the next step is to head to the Ring Chamber and “purchase” the inherited skill using SP. Take note that not all skills can be inherited.

* Anything Sync related (weapons, skills, etc) cannot be inherited. They’re exclusively available only to the Emblem Ring’s wearer.

* Weapon Proficiency doesn’t need to be inherited. Once you have reached the Bond Level that unlocks the Proficiency, that character permanently learns it, allowing him/her to be able to change to other classes that require specific weapon proficiency levels.

* Take note that Weapon Proficiency is different from Weapon Mastery. The latter needs to be Inherited and will just give the character access to bonus stats and effects when equipped with that specific weapon.

To summarize, there are two main requirements to inherit skills:

* Appropriate Bond Level

* Have enough SP (Skill Points)

Equipping Inherited Skills

After purchasing the skill, your next step is to equip it. Each character can only equip up to two Inherited Skills so carefully choose which ones you want to equip at a time. To do this, you have to open your menu, then select Inventory. Select the character you want to modify the skills, then select “Manage Skills”.

You also have to look out for “Overlaps” since some skills can’t be equipped at the same time as the Emblem that provides the same skill effect. If you have an overlapping skill, choose another skill to replace it for the meantime. Once the unit has a different ring equipped, you can re-equip that previously-overlapping skill instead.

If you have purchased the Expansion Pass, it is strongly recommended to unlock and inherit the Lineage skill (EXP+20%) to all of your units when sparring with any of the Three Houses trio. This is a pretty affordable skill to inherit too since it only costs 150 SP. You can also consider learning Starsphere (Enhanced Stat Growth when leveling up) and Lifesphere (restore HP and remove status effects when using the Wait command) from Tiki though these skills have significant SP costs, making them quite inaccessible early on.

How to Increase the Bond Level

You can increase a unit’s bond level with an emblem through the following means:

* Fighting together (Unit equips the Emblem Ring)

* Participate in Emblem Training in the Arena

* Select the unit to Polish the ring/bracelet of the selected Emblem

Out of the three, the fastest way of increasing Bond Levels is through Emblem Training in the Arena. Please refer to our dedicated Arena Guide for more information.

How to Collect SP

Generally, you can earn SP during combat or Standard Training (Arena), as long as the unit wears either an Emblem Ring/ Bracelet or Bond Rings. Without these two, the unit won’t earn any SP. Some units will have a starting amount of SP as well once you get them. Unfortunately, aside from actively participating in combat, there seems to be no other passive method of obtaining SP for reserved units. Please refer to our dedicated page for more information about the various effective methods of obtaining SP.

How to Earn Bond Fragments

As a summary, here are some ways to earn Bond Fragments.

* Feed and Pet Sommie

* Talk to allies post-battle

* Collect from the ground in Sommie’s Grotto

* Collect from the battlefield (may require online connection)

* Clear Achievements (collect from the bulletin board in Cafe Terrace)
