The Falcon Knight has pretty low strength compared to other offensive classes, and doesn’t have the high magic an Onmyoji or Strategist would, so what really sets them apart? Well, first, the Falcon Knight has even higher movement and is not limited to ground terrain effects, making them the ultimate support healer, and also a great Rescue user since they have so much range. You can capitalize on this further by giving them various Rally skills, of which Rally Speed is incredibly valuable.

Warding Blow is also another excellent skill to use, and is particularly effective on units with low Resistance. This can allow them to defeat magic users safely, and can bolster a dedicated mage-killer to make them nigh-invincible when it’s their turn to make their move.
