How to Unlock Weapon Proficiency in Fire Emblem Engage

To put things simply, a character‘s Weapon Proficiency in Fire Emblem Engage will increase as a character bonds with an Emblem. Just using a particular weapon type won’t do anything; you need to be equipped with a specific Emblem in order to improve your Proficiency with that weapon.

Once a character has been equipped with the right Emblem, their bond with that Emblem character will increase naturally in battle, and you can then use Bond Fragments back at the Somniel to improve their bond and help them learn new skills. This includes increased Weapon Proficiency as well.

Why Weapon Proficiency Is Important

Not only is Weapon Proficiency important for increasing your damage output, it’s also a requirement for class promotion in Fire Emblem Engage. If you want your characters to punch above their weight, you’ll eventually need to look into unlocking better classes for them.

In this game, just having the Master Seals aren’t enough; your units also need to be attuned enough to various Emblem characters in order to earn that promotion.
