Where are the third tiers?

Only briefly playing the GBA Fire Emblems and full-on beating Radiant Dawn, I noticed that RD had third-tiers which I thought was really cool.

But they aren't in this game, I wonder why?

Xenoblade is the spiritual successor of FF12.
999 and Zero Escape both deserve are Visual Novels to DIE for.

Because Radiant Dawn didn't have class changing, and was long enough that 40 levels wouldn't be enough.

Notice that the traditional S rank weapon rank is gone as well?

Because FE:A2 is coming.

This sentence is as meaningless as you.

Also the stat cap is higher in Awakening than Radiant Dawn. For example:

Radiant Dawn Trueblade (Max Stats)

HP: 55
Str: 32
Mag: 20
Skl: 40
Spd: 40
Lck: 30
Def : 26
Res: 24

Awakening Swordmaster (Max Stats)

HP: 80
Str: 38
Mag: 34
Skl: 44
Spd: 46
Lck: 45
Def : 33
Res: 38

The answer is pretty simple.

Lets take the Sword wielders tree as an example.


-> Tier 3 Swordmaster Promote
-> Swordmaster
Myrmidom -> Tier 3 Assassin/Swordmaster Promote
-> Assassin
Thief -> Tier 3 Assassin/Rogue Promote
-> Rogue
-> Tier 3 Rogue


That's 4 extra classes.

For a single class tree it would be 3 extra classes.

And that's assuming the keep the semi-overlapping promotion instead of make the 3rd Tier more specialized (which would result in a truly ridiculous amount of classes).

Sorry about that mess up there. Its supposed to be a proper tree but apaparently GameFaqs has missed the memo that part of the point of the code tag is to preserve white space as well as be monospaced.
