Perhaps this is your second crack at the game, and you're just sick of every second person on your roster being some sort of Knight. Seriously, why does this game have so many Knights? Please, no one teacher needs all those horses. Whatever your reasons for staring blankly at the Certification screen, you'll be happy to know that there are some special classes like the Dancer that you can encounter depending on your House pick which spice up your squad's life. Check out our Fire Emblem Three Houses Unique classes guide to see what perks you'll get if you have characters that can specialize in this way.

If you were curious about how the different House leaders evolve as the game goes on, then our Fire Emblem Three Houses Unique classes guide should answer your question. Of course, being able to benefit from these abilities will require actually being acquainted with either Claude, Dimitri or Edelgard by supporting their various routes. While the Dancer unique class is available to everyone regardless of affiliation so long as you don't have two left feet, it looks like the rest are an incentive to replay the game for each of the House's unique classes (and stories).
