The '''Dark Flier''' (ダークペガサス '''Dark Pegasus''' in the Japanese version of ''Awakening'') is a possible promotion for [[Pegasus Knight]]s from ''[[Fire Emblem Awakening]]''. They are female-only knights who ride into battle astride a black [[pegasus]], and who can wield lances and tomes.

The '''Dark Falcon''' class was introduced in ''[[Fire Emblem Fates]]'' as a unisex version of the class. However, this class requires the use of a [[Ebon Wing]] instead of a promotion from the [[Pegasus Knight|Sky Knight]] class.

==Overview==
Dark Fliers are a little different than [[Pegasus Knight|Pegasus Knights]] and [[Falcon Knight|Falcon Knights]] as they are more offensively diverse. They have the ability to utilize Lances and Tomes allowing them to exploit enemy defenses properly and have good mobility on all terrains. Their new stat caps favor their [[Magic (stat)|Magic]] stat and their [[Strength]] stat now slightly trails behind meaning that they can use [[Tome]]s much more effectively than [[Lance (weapon)|Lances]]. Their magic will take time to build, but it will be worth it in the end when they can use more powerful tomes. This makes them extremely good for taking down high defense units like [[General]]s and now can counterattack [[Sniper]]s and no longer needs to worry about weapon range while being limited to [[Javelin]]s, [[Short Spear]]s, and [[Spear]]s. Overall they are a much more mobile version of the [[Dark Knight (Awakening)|Dark Knight]] but with a physical weapon that can attack multiple ranges. However, they retain their weakness to [[Wind (tome)|Wind]] tomes and [[Bow]]s.

The two skills that Dark Fliers learn are [[Rally Movement]] and [[Galeforce]]. Rally Movement is a good [[Rally]] skill, however it must be used at the beginning of the turn because movement is only useful during the player's phase. Galeforce is arguably one of the best skills in the game, as it allows the user to take out two units in one turn, or retreat to safety when low on HP from a particularly strong unit. Unfortunately, because Dark Fliers are females only, it cannot be accessed by most male characters; of the male roster, only [[Inigo]], [[Owain]], [[Morgan]], and [[Brady]] can have Galeforce through inheritance. Though this is only the case with ''Awakening'' since the class is available to both genders in ''Fates''.

Revision as of 10:51, April 8, 2016

The Dark Flier (ダークペガサス Dāku pegasasu, lit. Dark Pegasus in the Japanese version of Awakening) is a Pegasus-mounted combat physical and magical class introduced in Fire Emblem Awakening. One of the promoted forms of the Pegasus Knight class in Awakening and a DLC-exclusive class in Fates, the Dark Flier class wields Tomes and Lances as its weapons of choice.

In Fates, the Dark Flier class is renamed to Dark Falcon (ダークファルコン Dāku farukon). In this title, the class is unisex, requiring the use of DLC-exclusive Ebon Wings in order for characters to gain access to it.

Overview

Combat

Dark Fliers are a little different from Pegasus Knights and Falcon Knights, as they are more offensively diverse. They have the ability to utilize both physical Lances and magical Tomes, allowing them to exploit both Defense and Resistance weaknesses. While the Magic of Dark Fliers will often take time to build up if physical characters are reclassed into the class, it will be well worth the effort eventually when they gain the ability to arm more powerful Tomes. This makes them extremely good for taking down high-Defense units like Generals and counterattacking Snipers, dispelling the need to worry about weapon range while being limited to Javelins, Short Spears and Spears. Offsetting the combat prowess of Dark Fliers is the fact that they retain their weakness to Wind tomes and Bows.

Awakening

The two skills that Dark Fliers learn are Rally Movement and Galeforce. Rally Movement is a good Rally skill, but should ideally be used at the beginning of each Player Phase. Galeforce, on the other hand, is arguably one of the best skills in the game, as it allows the user to either take out two units in one turn or retreat to safety when low on HP from a particularly strong unit. Unfortunately, because Dark Fliers are female-only, it cannot be accessed by most male characters; of the male roster, only Inigo, Owain, Morgan and Brady can access Galeforce through inheritance.
