With one week to go until Wave 4 of the Three Houses DLC is released, Nintendo and Intelligent Systems have been sharing a lot of tidbits via social media.
The latest morsel is related to the four brand new DLC classes. We already knew about them via data-mining, but now it’s official! The new classes are: Trickster, War Monk/Cleric, Dark Flier and Valkyrie. Awakening fans should recognise all four.
Featured in the screenshots are the Trickster and War Cleric classes. Looking at Ferdinand and Annette’s class lists, it seems our earlier suspicions have been confirmed: both Dark Flier and Valkyrie are female-only classes.
In Cindered Shadows, the four members of the Ashen Wolves will have access to these classes. Yuri will have Trickster, while we’re guessing Balthus will have War Monk, Constance Dark Flier and Hapi Valkyrie.
Trickster has a new Combat Art called “Trick”, which lets the user swap places with an ally within 5 spaces. With this, you can literally trick your way around the battlefield!
These classes can be unlocked in your main story save files after clearing Chapter 1 of Cindered Shadows. They are listed under a new category called “Special” classes. Characters must be Level 20+ and use an Underground Seal to change into these classes.
When you think of Trickster, there’s probably one character that jumps to mind. After clearing Chapter 1 of Cindered Shadows, you’ll be able to change Anna into her Trickster attire! Like other outfit changes, this can be done via “Unit Appearance” in your private quarters.
Additionally, Anna’s portrait during conversations etc. will change to match her new outfit! Classy.
For the benefit of those who don’t follow us on social media, here’s some other info that they shared earlier.
Abyss has shops such as an armory and blacksmith for you to use. But money and ore found in Cindered Shadows is limited, so watch how you spend. You’ll need to monitor your weapons’ durability as you fight. Ore can be obtained post-battle or after armor-breaking large foes.
By the way, the durability of the hero’s relic “Sword of the Creator” will naturally recover during certain points in the story. A fittingly mysterious mechanism for a sword of legend. Even if you avoided using the sword in the main story, please use it to your heart’s content in Cindered Shadows!
