Fire Emblem Engage has a massive roster of 36 playable characters. Managing all of them can be a daunting task. In this guide, I will go over the best class for each character in Fire Emblem Engage.
To avoid any major story spoilers, I will not go over a couple of characters. This way, if you want to know which classes are the best, you can do so free of spoilers.
I will divide the characters based on the major regions in the game.
Characters from Lythos

Best Class for Alear
Alear is the main lord of the game, and even though he can fill any role you want. It’s best to keep him in the Dragon Child/Divine Dragon class line.
The dragon subclass type will give you many unique buffs, with any emblem you equip.

The 32nd steward of the Divine Dragon excels in the Great Knight class. With two weapon options, he will break enemies and allow allies to go in for the kill without fear of retaliation.
Best Class for Framme
One of the twin 33rd stewards, Framme is the first healer that joins your team. She will work best in the Martial Master or High Priest classes to utilize your staves.

Consider whether you need to have another Sword user or a Staff user, but Citrinne will be an amazing unit for any team.

Yunaka‘s best class will be the thief class she joins in. She is one of the best units that join you, and she will shine throughout the game.

Master your positioning and utilize the level 5 skill Air Raid.
Best Class for Anna
Anna joins from a paralogue as an Axe Fighter. Most players would go for a physical class, but I would suggest going for High Priest.
With the high luck growth of the class, make her a glass cannon and trigger her skill with higher rates.

Lindon is an Elusian scholar, that joins as a Sage. Keep him as a Sage if you need that stave utility or make him a Mage Knight to utilize Swords to break Axe enemies.

Best Class for Pandreo
Pandreo is the crown Prince Fogado’s second retainer. His best class is the High Priest, which allows him to heal the team and do damage from behind.
His low defense will make him a liability if left alone to deal with enemies.
Best Class for Seadall
Seadall is the Dancer unit of this game. I can’t stress this enough, but keep him as a dancer.
Dancer units are beyond amazing and they refresh a unit’s turn. At level 5 he unlocks the skill Special Dance.
