Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes Tips and Tricks

Listed below are several Beginner Tips and Tricks which will help you in Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes.

Plan your Formation before Battle
When you begin a new game of Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes you will be given the opportunity to select active characters that you will be able to control directly and support units that you can order around. It is important before you engage in battle that you take the time to change the arrangement of your support units so that you have the advantage in battle. This means viewing the pre-match battle map and looking at the strengths and weakness of your adversary and lining your characters up against opponents that they are strong against. If you get into the habit of doing this before every battle you will give yourself a higher chance of winning.

Issuing Orders
It is essential that you issue orders that enable your support characters to act efficiently as doing so can change the tide of the battle. To issue orders to your support characters you need to press the + button on your controller to open the map, once the map is open you will be able to select any of the characters that you want to give an order to. The main orders are offensive, defensive, and supportive, which all branch into different variations and range from attacking enemies, defending strongholds, guarding allies, or healing.

Always use your Best Equipment
There are several methods in which you can obtain gear in Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes, the most common of which will be through mission rewards or uncovered loot. Regardless of how it is obtained the most important thing is ensuring that you regularly check your inventory (convoy) to make sure that you are always using the best equipment.

Distribute Gear Accordingly
It is important that not only do you equip your characters with the best gear you have available but also distribute the gear according to each character's stats. For example, characters with low defensive stats need to be equipped with a defensive item such as a shield, so they become more efficient in battle. Also keep in mind the weapon level of your characters, the higher it is, the more consecutive attacks they will be able to dish out with their weapon. Be sure to give each of your characters plenty of healing potions and also a secondary weapon to make up for the durability of their main weapon.

Experiment with Classes
In Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes you are able to change your class for free. There are no requirements and the level of your characters are maintained, so there is no need to be afraid of experimenting with the different classes in order to find one that suits your play style. To change your class you just need to go into the 'Convoy' menu and pick any of the characters whose class you want to change, then go to the 'Change Class' menu and select the class you want to change them to.

Use all your Characters
Although you can play a battle using one character you will find that it is more beneficial to switch characters during each battle so that you get to work with various skills and also get the opportunity to spread your XP throughout the party. The MVP of each battle/mission is awarded a bonus XP, so it is recommended that you use your lower-leveled characters whenever possible in order to give them the chance to scale quickly. Keep in mind that when you use the various abilities of your different characters you will be giving them a boost in their skills.

Personalize your Characters
In Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes you will have the option to customize your characters when you complete chapter 3 in the prologue. To change the appearance of your character you need to go to your Personal Quarters which can be found at the top-left of the map, this area can be easily reached by fast traveling through the 'Location' tab. At your quarters you will find a journal on the right side of the tent which if you interact with will enable you to select 'Change Appearance' from the menu. You can only change the appearance of one character or all units, and you will be given options for different appearances for the base and for the battles.

Keep Support Levels High
Try to maintain strong bonds and relations between party members in Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes to keep your Support Levels high. This means talking to characters, training, and sharing your tea with them. When you engage in these activities your Support points for these characters will increase and the relationship will aid you in battle.

Use your Strategy Resources
When you capture regions on the War Map and complete Side Quests you will be able to earn a currency called Strategy Resources. Make sure you spend them whenever possible on the Main Quest and don't hang onto them. Strategy Resources are very useful during the early game as they let you recruit enemy characters or give you advantages, such as summoning archers to help capture Strongholds, or clear the fog of war by lighting torches.

Complete Missions Quickly
In Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes the game will reward you for completing missions quickly and dealing high levels of damage. When you do so your mission rankings will increase, and you will be rewarded better overall loot from each mission.
