Sorry for being a little late getting this up today.
We're going to go through every playable character in the game to determine what class helps them best serve the team, starting with the parent generation, then the children's generation, and we'll close with the Avatar and Morgan. I'll basically be going in the order that characters are listed on the Fire Emblem Wiki page (http://fireemblem.wikia.com/wiki/List_of_characters_in_Fire_Emblem:_Awakening), excepting, again, Avatar and Morgan for last.
Vote for the 2nd Tier class that you think the units are best/most efficient as. YOUR FINAL VOTE SHOULD BE FOR ONE CLASS AND ONE CLASS ONLY!
Some things you might consider when casting a vote (but you don't have to): -Unit statistics. -Skills that you want a unit to be able to pass down as a parent. -Skills that you want a unit to be able to use effectively upon inheritance. -How "necessary" it is for a given unit to be a certain class (i.e., if you feel that Class A has many representatives who fulfill the role of that class better than a unit in the discussion, perhaps you are inclined to have that unit be Class B instead).
Yesterday's result: Pretty comfortable wins for Sage for Ricken and Valkyrie for Maribelle, although both units got "Benchwarmer votes." Um...yeah. Not much else to say, I guess. Good discussion in yesterday's topic centered mostly around Maribelle as a Valkyrie vs. Maribelle as a Sage.
TODAY'S UNITS: Panne and Gaius
Results: -Chrom: Great Lord -Lissa: Sage -Frederick: Great Knight -Sully: Paladin -Virion: Sniper -Stahl: Paladin -Vaike: Berserker -Miriel: Sorceror -Sumia: Falcon Knight -Kellam: General -Donnel: Hero -Lon'qu: Swordmaster -Ricken: Sage -Maribelle: Valkyrie
Evacuate? In our moment of triumph? I think you overestimate their chances.
