How to change classes in Fire Emblem Engage

Every character you get in Fire Emblem Engage will start off as a base class. While they can level up these classes, you aren't forced to keep everyone in the same class that they Start as, letting you more easily acheive better team compositions. This is a vital part of filling your ranks with diverse units, however,it isn't something you can do right away. There are several steps required before you can start turning archers into knights, but with our help, you won't miss a beat.



What You Need

  • Reach the required level

  • Reach the required weapon proficiency

  • Have the correct seal

How to change classes in Fire Emblem Engage

There are three things you need before you can start changing classes (or two if you are just switching between base classes). These are hitting the required level, getting enough weapon proficiency, and having the correct seal.

Step 1: You don't need to hit any specific level to change base classes, so feel free to do so whenever you wish. However, changing to an advanced class requires that unit to first hit level 10 in a specific base class. One example is a unit having to reach level 10 Sword Fighter to become a Swordmaster.

Step 2: Aside from being level 10, you will also need to train that unit up to have one or more weapon proficiency for that class. An example here would be the High Priest class requiring proficiencies in magic, staves, and martial arts, while the Berserker only requires proficiency in axes.

Weapon proficiency is gained by increasing the bond between that unit and the appropriate Emblem.

Step 3: Finally, changing classes requires a seal. These can be awarded from battle, but also purchased in the Item Shop. Master Seals let you change from a base to an advanced class, while Second Seals let you change into special classes.

Step 4: Once you've met all the requirements, the actual act of changing a unit's class is done at the Somniel. Go into your inventory, select Change Class and select the class you want to change to. This will consume your seal, so while you can change again by getting or buying another, be sure before committing.

How to lockpick in Starfield
A circular ring lockpick game in Starfield.

Each of Bethesda's massive open worlds are meant to be playgrounds for the player to explore, with none as ambitious as the one in Starfield. However, that doesn't mean you're allowed to go everywhere and anywhere -- at least not without breaking in. Locked doors and terminals are all over, so thorough players will no doubt want to invest in the lockpicking skill to make sure they can access all the best loot. Even with the ability to attempt a lockpick, the system Starfield uses is different from any Bethesda has made before. Here's how lockpicking really works.

How to build an outpost in Starfield
Spaceship on planet in Starfield.

As advertised, Starfield is filled with over 1,000 planets to freely land on, explore, and plunder for resources. While you could simply go down and scan the surface for resources to mine manually, if you want to be an efficient miner, then you will want to set up an outpost to automate the process for you. Somewhat like the building system introduced in Fallout 4, outposts have a lot of systems going on. Getting started isn't too tough, but the amount of options and things you need to balance can get complicated if you plan on making this a lucrative venture for resources and Credits. The tutorial can get you started, but we'll get you the rest of the way there to managing a successful outpost in Starfield.
Find a vein
Your outpost isn't going to do much if you set it up in an area with no resources, so plotting out the best location to build is key. When you arrive at a planet of choice, you are given the option to scan it. This will reveal the main resources that planet has, plus change the view to show how those resources are distributed. Once you've found a planet with the resource(s) you're looking for, rotate the planet until you find a big concentration of it to land on.

But don't just drop your outpost beacon right where you land! Just because you set your ship to land on what looks like a mother lode of resources doesn't mean the specific spot you touch down will be right. Whip out your scanner and check the area, specifically for underground resources. When you find an area with a good amount of one or more resource veins, then its time to start building.

How to change the difficulty in Sea of Stars
Zale and Valere from Sea of Stars

In many ways, Sea of Stars feels like a return to what put role-playing games on the map decades ago, thanks to its gorgeous 16-bit visuals and turn-based combat encounters that really capture one of gaming's most memorable eras. However, that doesn't mean it offers no modern conveniences, as it's actually a very accessible game with plenty of creative design choices that make it feel like it fits right into our current times, too. One of the ways in which it adds modern flair is via its unique difficulty system, which eschews the usual Easy/Medium/Hard selections for something more customizable. Here's how it works.
How to use Relics to change the difficulty
Similar to the ring system from Final Fantasy XVI, Sea of Stars allows you to customize the game's difficulty to your liking via various Relics with individual perks and boons that can be toggled on and off at any time. These can be found in the status menu by scrolling down to "Relics," and the game will give you two very early on, though it's important to keep an eye out for others you can pick up.

Those looking for an easier experience are likely to appreciate The Amulet of Storytelling, which you'll have access to at the beginning of the journey. This Relic doubles your overall HP and heals you automatically after combat, making many of the game's areas significantly easier. However, you'll also be able to pick up the Artful Gambit a little ways into your quest, which will reduce your HP by 95% and add additional bonuses for timing blocks and attacks properly, making the game much more difficult.
