One of the key new features in Fire Emblem Engage is to call upon the power of old lords in the series to help along in combat. This can help units a lot, either by giving them a new weapon, allowing them to use a valuable skill, or unlocking a special attack that can shred the enemy. Players who don't use this resource wisely can be left wanting while the enemy strikes.
When to use Engage in Fire Emblem Engage
As it is a valuable resource, the Engage option should really be saved for dire situations. There's nothing wrong with having each unit Engage at some point during a chapter, but players should plan out when to Engage.
It's best if players do this before they even make their first most. Certain Emblem Lords will be useful to defeat certain enemies. If facing a map with a strong Armored Lord, for example, players can save their Engage with Marth to take advantage of his Rapier (which effectively damages armored units).
How to Engage in Fire Emblem Engage
When a unit in Fire Emblem Engage has a ring equipped, they are synced with the Emblem Lord associated with that ring. However, the unit won't have access to that lord's special weapon or attack without selecting the Engage option during combat. Players will find this above Attack when they are about to face an enemy.
How to gain Emblem Energy in Fire Emblem Engage
When a unit uses Engage, it only lasts for three turns. Afterwards, that unit's Engage meter needs to refill. This is normally done by engaging in combat and taking damage. It's much quicker, however, to stand on one of the Emblem Energy spaces. These are glowing blue tiles that appear on the map. Once a unit stands on them, their Emblem Energy meter will be totally replenished.
