In Fire Emblem: Three Houses, you’ll be able to help your students focus on which skills they need to work on. Each of your students is going to have some skills that they are naturally efficient in. Skills that they know like the back of their hands. Unfortunately, some skills won’t come to your students quite so naturally. Knowing each of your unit’s positive and negative skill levels will be vital to helping you build out your House and make your students as strong as possible. In this guide, we’ll discuss skill levels, as well as touch on all the positive and negative skill levels for each student in Fire Emblem: Three Houses.
All positive and negative skill levels in Fire Emblem: Three Houses
Knowing the positive and negative skill levels of your students is important because it allows you to pick and choose how you want to approach increasing those skills. As with any previous title in the series, each student will have a varying skill level in the basic skills of the game (sword, axes, spells, and so on). Typically players will see their students’ skill levels ranging anywhere from E, D, C, B, A, and even S—the highest rank available for skills. The rank of each skill will determine how many abilities and weapon types that unit can use.
In Fire Emblem: Three Houses you’ll want to focus on the positive skills that your students have as these skills will reward them with bonus experience each time that they complete activities to upgrade them. To make the entire process easier, we’ve included a table of all the students that players will come across in Fire Emblem: Three Houses, as well as included which house they are in, their positive skill levels, and their negative skill levels.
