In Fire Emblem Engage, units can inherit and use skills without Emblem Rings equipped. This allows a character to acquire Emblem Skills and use them even without the need for the Emblem Ring that provided them with the skill to remain in their possession. There are a total of two skill inheritance slots that can be equipped for each unit with the use of Skill Points.

What Is Skill Inheritance in Fire Emblem Engage?

Part of the appeal to Fire Emblem Engage is the fun mechanic of customizing your units and creating your own unique builds to use with them as you wish.

While you can grant your units special Emblem Skills by equipping them with Emblem Rings, there are not enough Emblem Rings in the game to have one supplied to every unit at all times.

However, you can still grant units that aren’t paired with an Emblem Ring access to Emblem skills through an option known as Skill Inheritance. In Fire Emblem Engage, a unit will have two available skill inheritance slots, which can be altered to your liking through the use of Skill Points.

Units may only inherit skills from Emblems, and there is no possible way to inherit skills from other units. You’ll need to keep this in mind when determining what skills you wish to attach to which unit.

How Does Skill Inheritance Work in Fire Emblem Engage?

In Fire Emblem Engage, you will unlock the Ring Chamber in Somniel after you complete Chapter 4. By interacting with the pedestal in the center of the chamber, you can open a Prepare For Battle menu, where you can cycle through options to do with Skills, Bond Rings, and Enage Weapons.

By Selecting the Inherit Skills option from this menu, you will be able to view all of the Emblems that you have unlocked thus far throughout your adventure and view the list of skills each one has to offer. You can also choose to inherit any of these unlocked skills by spending Skill Points.

To inherit an Emblem Skill, you will need to have achieved Bond Level 5 with an Emblem to unlock their Skill Inheritance and also have some Skill Points at your disposal to spend on the skills of your choice. Skill Points can be gained by using a unit equipped with an Emblem or Bond Ring in battle. Units that do not have a ring equipped will not be able to earn Skill Points.

This means that initially, a unit must have a ring equipped to gain the Skill Points needed for Skill Inheritance, but once they’re set up with the inherited skills of your choice, they will no longer need to have the correct rings equipped to use them. Bond Rings give a 50% gain of Skill Points, while Emblem Rings provide 100%.

Skills can cost anywhere from 100 to 8,400 Skill Points, depending on which one you are looking to buy and the type of abilities or boosts it provides a unit. If you have previously purchased a skill of a specific tier and are looking to upgrade that same skill to the next level, the cost will be reduced as opposed to outright purchasing the higher-level variant of the skill.

You can also unlock more Skills with an Emblem by reaching Bond Level 5 and completing their respective paralogue. This should give you even more choices to consider when constructing builds for your units, so it’s a handy step to include if you want the extra options.

That’s everything you need to know about how Skill Inheritance works in Fire Emblem Engage.
