What Master Seals and Second Seals do – Fire Emblem: Engage

You can change units into a huge variety of classes.

You can change units into a huge variety of classes.

As mentioned above, Seals change the class of your unit, allowing them access to a new progression path, with new weapons at their disposal.

A Master Seal can only be used on a unit above level 10, and this will allow them to ascend to a higher-ranked class type.

A Second Seal meanwhile will allow your unit to either revert down a step, or move into a class with an equal rank to their current class.

The use case of the Master Seal is obvious – you’re best off waiting to use Master Seals on a high-level unit, but even on a level 10 fighter, the Master Seal will still enhance their stats overall.

The Second Seal is a bit different however, and it should be used to eventually work towards the Advanced class you desire. Instead of needing to learn certain skills for select classes as in Three Houses, in Engage you’ll need to fulfil other requirements.

Each class has specific requirements you must meet.

 For example, if you wish to make Yunaka into a Royal Knight Advanced class, she will need to get her Special Class to level 21 (which is, luckily, Thief), ensure she has proficiency in both A Spears and C Staves, and finally, use either a Second Seal.

Second Seals can also be used to reset the level of a max-level unit, while keeping their improved stats, meaning there’s you can keep enhancing the strength of your team.
