Fire Emblem: Three Houses – The Best Classes For Every Character | Fast Growth Guide

There are 30+ classes to unlock for your students in Fire Emblem: Three Houses, and not every student is suited for every job. Each character has a unique set of interests that they excel at, and depending on those interests, they’ll be able to enhance their skills much faster. A student that loves magic will learn how to use weapons at a slower pace, and vice versa.

That’s why we’ve put together a list detailing exactly what jobs are suited for every character in the game. Depending on their preferences, which do change as the story goes on, you’ll want to aim (and unlock) the following classes for each character. Characters can unlock way more classes than you’ll probably use, so it’s important to select the classes that best fit your team composition and playstyle. Even if you follow the guide below, there are plenty of options for strategic planning.
