The Great Lord (マスターロード, Master Lord in the Japanese version in Fire Emblem: Binding Blade, Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones, and Fire Emblem: Awakening and グレートロード, Great Lord in Fire Emblem: Rekka no Ken) is the promoted class that a Lord becomes in Fire Emblem: Binding Blade, Fire Emblem: Rekka no Ken, Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones, and Fire Emblem: Awakening. In Fire Emblem: Fates, it is the starting class of amiibo Lucina.
In The Sacred Stones, it gives both Eirika and Ephraim mounts, while in Rekka no Ken it gives Hector the use of swords and the Armads and in Awakening it gives Chrom and Lucina the use of lances in addition of swords.
Both Ephraim and Eirika can become a Great Lord by using either the Solar Brace or Lunar Brace, respectively. Hector can become one by using a Heaven Seal, or in a storyline event, depending upon whether he or Eliwood is deemed the main character. The former two resemble Paladins, whereas the latter a General, though Eirika's stat caps are identical to those of a Swordmaster, and Ephraim's stat caps are identical the Knight Lord from Rekka no Ken except the resistance cap is 2 points less than the knight lord in Rekka no Ken. Chrom and Lucina can become Great Lords at any point in the story with the use of a Master Seal after they reach level 10 or higher as a Lord.
It should be noted that in the Japanese version of Fire Emblem: Rekka no Ken, Hector's class is the only one that is called Great Lord.
Base Stats Edit
Possible Great LordsEdit
- In Awakening, the Great Lord carries a shield on its left arm. For Chrom, this shield is the Fire Emblem, and accordingly changes as its orbs are collected and disappears entirely for the few chapters in which it has been stolen by Validar.
- Lucina's shield is a larger version of the mask she wore in her "Marth" guise.
