It is a mercenary class, and a Fluegel wields two swords. They can use magic, and on top of all this, they also possess a mysterious special power. Fluegel is the beginner class that the player character Shez possesses. The class is exclusive to Shez. 

This is an all-around class and is better for any situation. If you are the type of player who loves to play the offensive style and charge head-first into battle with minimal strategizing and thinking, then it is certainly the perfect class for you.

If you love riding a horse into combat in games, then the class is the perfect one for you as it involves riding a flying horse into battle. A Pegasus Knight is, of course, an airborne knight that has a high defense against magic attacks. 

This class is exclusive to female units, which is a bummer for players who mainly prefer to play with male characters, but it is no reason not to utilize the excellent class’s potential. Pegasus Knight has both great offensive and defense, and it is a pretty well-balanced class. Pegasus knights can also avoid attacks because of their flight.

Moreover, due to the high magic defense of the class, we advise you to use it whenever you are going against a lot of enemies that use magic.

The Cavalier is another mount class. They have great movement speed due to their mount and can travel quickly between bases thanks to it. The main downside of this class is its low defense, but it is covered thanks to its speed and mobility, which will give you the edge in combat.

Armored Lord

TypeAbilities Usable Weapon(s)Notable Unit(s)
Armored Lance Buster Lv 2 and CharmAxe, Authority, and Heavy ArmorEdelgard
Growth Rates

Armored Lord is one of the strongest and most impact-inducing classes in Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes. An Armored Lord wields an axe as a weapon. It is an intermediate class similar to Fluegel, and it is one of the strongest also similar to it.

Armored Lord is exclusive to Edelgard. It is strong against lances. Also, it is important to note that Armored Lord has a vulnerability against the ability “Effective vs Armored Units”. 


TypeAbilities Usable Weapon(s)Notable Unit(s)
Infantry Bow Buster Lv 2 and FireTomeAnnette, Hubert, and Lysithea
Growth Rates

Mage, as suggested by its name, is a magic-wielding class that is proficient in elemental attacks. Mages use Tome as a weapon to cast their spells and attacks. They are strong against bows and naturally show excellent resistance against magic attacks. 

Moreover, similar to most RPGs, Mages in Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes are also very weak to physical attacks. Mage class also has an overall low defense which most of the time shouldn’t be an issue if you keep your distance. 

Wyvern Master

TypeAbilities Usable Weapon(s)Notable Unit(s)

Gauntlet Buster Lv 2

Growth Rates

Wyvern Master, in our opinion, is the coolest class for players who love to play mount classes. A Wyvern Master literally rides a dragon to battle and reigns hell on their enemies. The main weapon that Wyvern Master uses aside from their massive dragon is a bow. 

Wyvern Master is strong against gauntlets. This class is extra effective against other flying classes such as Pegasus Knight. You can mount the Wyvern or dismount it at any time by pressing “L+B”. It is weak against the ability “Effective vs Fliers”.
