Fire Emblem Three Houses DLC Battle Sister, Battle Monk Classes Revealed

All the details on the Battle Monk and the Battle Sister, one of the new classes introduced in the Fire Emblem Three Houses DLC.

It’s time for your daily fix of info regarding the exclusive classes in the Fire Emblem Three Houses DLC. As we get closer to the release of Cindered Shadows on February 13, the Japanese Fire Emblem Twitter regularly reveals new details, and today we learned more about the Battle Monk / Battle Sister Class.

Here’s what Fire Emblem True Final Boss Anna explained:

This Class’ name changes depending on the character’s gender, with Battle Sister being for female characters and Battle Monk being for male characters. The Battle Sister / Battle Monk Class is described as a powerful warrior with strong faith, who wields an ax or their own fists in battle. The Battle Monk / Battle Sister’s class-specific Combat Art is called Distant Hit (it’ll probably be officially localized differently), which lets the unit target an enemy in 1-2 range. It uses a lot of weapon durability, but Distant Hit’s damage is calculated using the Battle Monk / Battle Sister’s magic attack instead of physical attack. The Battle Monk/ Battle Sister can also use some recovery magic.

The Fire Emblem Three Houses DLC has four exclusive Classes, and they also unlock in the main game as you progress in the DLC. You can read our coverage regarding the Trickster Class, and the Dark Pegasus Class. Note that the Classes’ names might turn out different in the English version. The DLC will also have slightly harder maps than the main game, along with other differences.

You can read more on the Cindered Shadows side story DLC here, and check out its trailer and first details here. Fire Emblem Three Houses and Fire Emblem Awakening are also getting a Drama CD in Japan.

Fire Emblem Three Houses is a really good Nintendo Switch exclusive and it managed to become the best selling game in the 30 years of history of the franchise.
