I'm betting on Soldier --> Halberdier/Paladin, personally.

Say, what was Recruit II's alternate promotion? Recruit II/Super Recruit were basically Soldier/Halberdier, so I wouldn't be surprised if this follows the same path.

I never kept the Trainees as Trainees. I always promoted them. Ross went Fighter -> Hero most times, occassionally Pirate -> Berserker. Amelia was Cavalier -> Paladin or Knight -> General. Ewan I often had him be a Mage -> M. Knight, sometimes Sage. Rarely did I use him as a Shaman because his palette did not fit the image of a Shaman.

So if Donny ends up being a Trainee... at least give him a decent promotion. I hope he acts more like Aran than Nephenee because Nephenee was wayyyy overpowered.

I'm hoping there are other Trainees.

Maybe 3, like FE8

I wouldn't mind Recruit classes. I liked the idea of them in FE8, but they just needed to be a whole lot better. I mean, Ewan is pretty much statistically inferior, or about the same, as Lute, but comes 8 chapters later and at a lower level. And then, the game wasn't very difficult either, which made them even less useful. Recruits, need to be in a more challenging game, and if well trained, statistically superior to your other units.

I would have thought if any character we've seen so far would have been a trainee it would have been Richt. Especially since Kroms Vigilante has both him and Miriel as Mages, when most games have 1 of each class except Fighters and Cavaliers as a part of the starting groups.

Hm, yeah. So since he's not, chances are, no other characters are, either.

Recruit 2 in Sacred stones had the second option of Paladin.

Donny, however, I can kind of see having General as his alternate promotion.

Donny's class has been revealed to be a Villager.

Yeah Its a little odd that a tough looking kid like Donny is a trainee while someone like Richt is a regular unit.

If he's a villager, I'm guessing his life's pretty tough. In comparison, Richt is probably a wealthy kid who studies all day. Donny just wouldn't have military training while Richt has studied magic.

Hey let's not belittle Richt just because he's of young age.

So what does everyone Donny's promotions will be?


I'm holding onto the hope that Halberdier will be an option. With possibly an Armor Knight option.

In one of the videos, it looked like he could become a Mercenary/Hero.

If it's like the original Villager, he'll have a few options to choose from when he promotes. I'm gonna guess just three though, considering the promotions shown so far are all variations of three classes.

His bases looks atrociously bad from the scans :/

I hope he's an early-enough joiner that bad bases won't hurt him too much though. He actually looks like an interesting character, but if he's gonna be an ass to train, I ain't a masochist.

He can apparently join before Ch2, and appears to start around LV5. Chances are, it'll be like FE8, where he can just level up a bit more to reach LV10 and promote. And once he promotes, I think it's a safe bet that his problems will be over. A Villager --> Cavalier promotion, for example, would give +6 Str, +5 Skl, +6 Spd, and +7 Def, as well as likely some amount of HP. Now, I don't know what options he'll actually turn out to have, but I think that serves as a good example.

As we know, he does seem to possess some unarmored, unmounted lance class a tier or two above Villager, so it seems his promotions will include Mercenary and Soldier, and perhaps Mage for the third option. Makes sense that he'd have that kind of variety, to have access to the six weapon types. Although that would be kind of a lot of mages if he goes that route.

Well, that's certainly early enough XD

Probably will be using then.

Yep. Also gives him more of a purpose if he can choose his class from three vastly different options in the first few chapters, while with all the difficulty with Change Proofs, other characters will have to wait until much later.
