How to Learn Combat Arts & Spells From Other Characters

By

This page explains how to learn combat arts and spells from other character in Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes.

A lesser known and rather complicated feature is that you can teach certain combat arts and spells to an adjutant.

How to Assign Adjutants

As a reminder, playable characters can be assigned as adjutants during battle, via the following methods:

  1. Press Joy-Con-L and Joy-Con-ButtonY when near another character.
  2. Select a character via the Order menu, drag them to a different character, then press Joy-Con-ZR and choose the “Assign as Adjutant” option.

The adjutant will temporarily leave the battlefield, but support the character they’ve been assigned (the vanguard), by providing a stat boost and automatic Adjutant Follow-Up and Guard actions. The adjutant’s portrait will also appear next to the vanguard.

Requirements for Teaching Combat Arts and Spells

If you’ve reading this, you probably received a long-winded tutorial message, with a big list of requirements. Let’s break them all down.

Before we begin, keep in mind that the adjutant is the character who will learn the combat art/spell. Not the other way around. In other words, the adjutant is the pupil, while the vanguard (the character who’s fighting) is the tutor.

If you’ve got the order wrong, press Joy-Con-L and Joy-Con-ButtonA to swap positions, so the adjutant becomes the vanguard–and vice versa.

Next, the two characters must have a C support or higher. Although C is the minimum required, the higher the support level, the easier it will be to teach the art/spell. However, many characters do not have A or even B support levels, so sometimes it can’t be helped.

The combat art/spell you’re trying to teach must be Level 3. It must also be an art/spell learned from a preferred class (with the blue up arrows). However, there are exceptions (namely the House Leaders’ unique arts). To see if an art/spell can be taught, look for a speech bubble icon. No icon means it cannot be taught, ever.

Finally, the adjutant’s weapon rank must be A for the corresponding weapon. Eg. to learn a Sword combat art, the adjutant must have A rank in Sword. For spells, the adjutant needs A rank in Tome.

How to Teach Combat Arts and Spells

After checking you’ve fulfilled all the requirements, simply head out to any battle where your progress is saved. This can be current battles or past battles via the Record Keeper. If you only want to learn arts/spells, you could try some early/easy battles.

As soon as you can, assign the adjutant who’s going to learn the chosen art/spell to the character with the Level 3 art/spell. Then spam your art/spell like mad. There’s a completely random chance that the adjutant will learn the art/spell.

When an art/spell is learned, blue text will pop up near your character saying “Peer Training Successful.” When the battle is over, you’ll also receive a prompt saying that the adjutant learned the art/spell from the vanguard.

Like we mentioned at the beginning, the higher the support rank between the adjutant and vanguard, the higher the success rate.

Remember that the chance is still completely random, so you could learn an art/spell on your first attempt, even with a C support rank (this happened to us once). Or it could take hundreds of attempts…
