Should I promote Lissa, even though she's Level 10?

I'm between Chapter 9 and 10. Lissa was able to finally hit Level 10, and I'm planning to promote her now to a Sage.

She's still my healer, I'm just giving her another role and a way to defend herself. And since the need for healing seems to have decreased, she won't get anywhere fast staying as she is. So putting a tome in her hands makes her more useful.

And if I do promote her, what would be a good E ranked tome she can use?

I'm pretty sure my Lissa was level 20 by the time I hit chapter 9...

If you hold off until she's 20, she'll have a considerably high magic stat, giving her better healing and, despite her low defense, will absolutely destroy things with low resistance.

Lifetouch gives her high healing anyway, but I see your point.

just heal anything and everything, you do that and she'll get to 20 in no time.

then just sage away at everything.

Promote her ASAP. You'll want to make her a Sage though, as her strength stat is probably miserable. She gets to keep her staff utility while also now being ale to protect herself.
I'm not Superman, that's for sure. And I'm not Batman or Spiderman or Aquaman or a wolfman or a merman. I'm not brahman or common or ramen, either.

I don't think it matters too much what level you promote someone in this game since you're gonna be demoting and reclassing and maxing their stats out regardless.

Get a Rescue Staff for Lissa, when she uses that she gets about a half level worth of XP. She'll be level 20 after a few battles.

She already has, and has been using, the Rescue staff when needed.

What's this madness you jokers are talking about? You second seal her at 10 to peg knight. Your goal is Dark Flier and Galeforce ASAP. Afterwards you do the sage stuff, Galeforce comes first. It's also much easier to do.

I always promote Lissa and Maribelle as soon as I can.

Not having an option to defend yourself and low stats as either healing class makes them too easy to wipe out.

They're also far easier to level if they can attack.

Make Lissa a Sage for Tomes and Maribelle a Valkyrie.
