Remember little Anna, who pops up in some capacity in almost every Fire Emblem game? Well, Fire Emblem Engage is here, and so is Anna—again!
Anna used to be a non-playable character, taking on the role of a mentor or a merchant, but since Fire Emblem Awakening, you get to recruit her for your team as well. The same happens in Fire Emblem Engage. You cross paths with Anna after Chapter 6 of the main story, and when she joins your team, you may wonder what to do with her, since her base stats are not that promising.
In this guide, we present the best Anna builds in Fire Emblem Engage. Get ready because you’re in for a surprise!
Anna’s Base Stats in Fire Emblem Engage
When you first encounter Anna in Fire Emblem Engage, she is a merchant who doesn’t shy away from a battle, but her stats are pretty low:
- HP: 29
- Strength: 10
- Magic: 2
- Dexterity: 9
- Speed: 7
- Defense: 4
- Resistance: 5
- Luck: 3
- Build: 7
Anna’s initial class in the game is Axe Fighter, and she comes with a unique ability called Make a Killing, which can bring in 500G when she defeats an enemy. But if you want to know where Anna can go from this point, let’s explore her growth stats.
Anna’s Growth Stats in Fire Emblem Engage
Knowing Anna’s potential for growth will help you decide on her best build:
- HP: 55
- Strength: 15
- Magic: 50
- Dexterity: 50
- Speed: 50
- Defense: 45
- Resistance: 20
- Luck: 35
- Build: 5
It might be a huge surprise, but we can see that it makes total sense to invest in her Magic, Dexterity, and Speed growth. Compared to all the other characters in Fire Emblem Engage, Anna has the best magic growth of all, which potentially makes her the best mage in the game, and that brings us to our next point.
Best Anna Builds in Fire Emblem Engage
Even though she starts as an Axe Fighter, it is obvious that Anna has the potential to become a Sage or a High Priest eventually. Still, the road from wielding axes to using magical tomes and staves is not easy. Here’s how you can do it:
- Upgrade Anna to level 10 in her base class;
- Promote her to some advanced class with a Master Seal (it doesn’t have to be a magical one yet);
- Use the Emblem Ring Micaiah and get the bond to level 10;
- Get Tome Proficiency and Staff Proficiency;
- Obtain a Second Seal and switch her class to Sage or High Priest.
This way, you will have one of the strongest magic users in the game, even though it does require some effort and time.
