All sync skills in Fire Emblem Engage

by Ana Lopez

The latest title in the long-running Fire Emblem saga allows players to call to the aid of stars from previous games. Players who only know the franchise from their appearances as top characters in Smash Bros. will be happy to see familiar faces like Ike and Marth again. These classic characters appear as ghosts in magic rings and provide benefits to those who summon them.

What are synchro skills in Fire Emblem Engage?

The twelve Emblem Rings are key elements of the new game, but their flashy Engage Attacks aren’t the only thing they have to offer. Synchro Abilities are passive abilities that activate once a unit is equipped with a Emblem Ring. Some offer mild stat benefits, others make a unit do something they normally couldn’t, and some completely change a character’s moves.

What is the best synchronization skill in Fire Emblem Engage?

The best Synchro ability is Dragon Vein, but only when applied to a Dragon unit. Most rings offer useful but uninteresting additions to various skills. Some can be very useful, but most of their benefits are minor. Corrin’s ring allows a Dragon unit to select a huge magical effect that could make some assignments much easier. Starting a fight with a constant healing radiance or forcing enemies into a massive fire can be an instant winning blow.
