Train in the Arena

After each battle, visit the Arena in Somniel where you can train. Specifically, you fight against your allies to gain XP and Skill Points.

This can be done three times after every battle. Thus, after completing each battle, train three times in the arena, then move to the next battle, and then back to the arena again.

Complete Silver Corrupted Skirmishes

Skirmishes are unlocked right after completing Chapter 6: The Stolen Ring and can be found on previously completed map points.

There are three types of skirmishes in Fire Emblem Engage: regular, silver, and gold ones.

While the gold corrupted skirmishes award rarer drops and money when defeated, the silver ones provide additional XP and SP.

Additionally, the character that deals the finishing blow will gain even more XP and SP.

Use Micaiah’s Great Sacrifice

The best way for gaining XP quickly in Fire Emblem is by using Emblem Micaiah (unlocked in Chapter 6) and using the Great Sacrifice Engage Attack to heal all units on the battlefield.

The more HP you heal, the more XP you’ll gain. The only setback is that normally this can only be used once per battle.

However, there is a way to use it twice. Equip Emblem Celica (unlocked in Chapter 4) and level it up to Level 8 to unlock the Favorite Food skill. Using this skill fully restores the engage meter of a unit, which in turn allows you to use Great Sacrifice twice.

The only issue is that this method requires a lot of preparation. Leave your units on as low HP as possible and defeat most enemy units so that your allies won’t die.

When everyone is on low HP, use Great Sacrifice and you’ll see your XP bar skyrocket.

What is the Max Level in Fire Emblem Engage

The max level depends on the class type. Specifically, base and advanced classes can reach up to level 20.

However, certain special classes such as the Thief can level up even higher, all the way up to level 40.

Wrapping up

To sum up, these are the best ways to level up quickly and grind XP in Fire Emblem Engage.

Train in the arena, complete silver corrupted skirmishes, and use emblem Micaiah’s Great Sacrifice whenever possible to reach max level fast.
