Fire Emblem: Awakening Class Guide

Version 1.00 by

02/15/13

Fire Emblem Awakening has over 40 classes, each of which has its own strengths and weaknesses. Additionally, all but a select few of the classes can upgrade to an advanced class once level 10 is reached. In order to maximize a character’s potential it’s recommended to hit level cap for the basic class before promoting allowing the character to produce the highest stats possible.

See below for a full list of classes including basic and advanced.
