In Fire Emblem Engage, Bond Rings work similarly to Emblem Rings, with each one carrying the spirit of heroic Fire Emblem characters from previous generations.
Similarly to Emblem Rings, you can equip these Bond Rings to your acquired Units to receive special bonuses.

What Are Bond Rings in Fire Emblem Engage?
In Fire Emblem Engage, Bond Rings are special items that work very similar to Emblem Rings, in which they hold the spirits of Fire Emblem characters from previous generation games.
When equipped to one of your Units, a Bond Ring will provide helpful stat boosts, and in some cases, Skills.
While Bond Rings aren’t as powerful in the boosts that they provide as Emblem Rings, they are still extremely handy in rounding out the stats of some of your Units who don’t have Emblem Rings equipped, making them slightly more useful in their role on the field.
Bond Rings can be created through the Ring Chamber by forging from Emblems with the use of Bond Fragments.
The Bond Spirit, otherwise known as the character linked to your ring, will be randomized based on whichever pedestal you used to create the Bond Ring.
Each unique Bond Spirit provides a specific stat boost to their ring, which is then granted to whichever of your Units you’d decide to equip with the Bond Ring.
Bond Rings can also be melded together to create better-quality Bond Rings with higher stat boosts. Depending on the Tier of Bond Ring, the cost of improving your rings in Bond Fragments will vary.
How to Make & Equip Bond Rings in Fire Emblem Engage
To make Bond Rings, first, you’ll need to have finished any Chapter combats or Skirmishes and return to Somniel.
Once you’re at Somniel, go ahead and travel to the Ring Chamber either on foot or by using the Fast Travel Map to get there instantly.
Once you’ve entered the Ring Chamber, walk up to the Central Pedestal and press A to examine and open the menu.
From this menu, scroll down to Create Bond Rings at the second option, and press A to continue.
You will now open a menu with all of the Emblem Rings you have acquired so far along your journey.
Each Emblem has many different characters that can be summoned as Bond Rings, with the character selected for the Bond Ring being random each time you create a new one.
Once you pick an Emblem, you will have the option to create 1 Bond Ring for 100 Bond Fragments, or 10 Bond Rings for 1000 Bond Fragments.
After you make your selection, a new Ring will be generated at random.
This Ring will be created at a random grade, between Bronze, Silver, and Gold, with Bronze being the most basic stats and Gold rings containing better stats. You can also meld rings together to further improve their grade.
Once you have all the Bond Rings you need, you’ll want to equip them to some of your Units. To do so, press the + button on the Joy-con or the controller and then select Emblem Rings from this menu.
Now scroll down and select a Unit in which you’d like to equip with a Bond Ring. This will open the Emblem Ring equip menu, so to scroll to Bond Rings, all you need to do is hit the right arrow on the D-pad, which will bring you to Marth’s Bond Rings.
To view the Bond Rings of other Emblems, you can continue to use the right arrow on the D-Pad to navigate through them and select one you want to equip. This will bring up a confirmation, so hit A again to confirm, and then you’ll be all set. Easy as that!
You can repeat this as needed to equip more Bond Rings to different Units, as there is no limit to the amount of Bond Rings you can have equipped.
This means that as long as you have enough Bond Fragments to spend, you should eventually be able to equip a Bond Ring to every Unit that is lacking an Emblem Ring to at least give them some sort of minor buff for combat.
That’s everything you need to know about how to equip Bond Rings in Fire Emblem Engage.
