Fire Emblem Echoes Combat Arts and Passive Skills

Fire Emblem Echoes Combat Arts and Passive Skills Guide to help you learn everything you need to know about Combat Arts and Passive Skills in the game. Skills in Fire Emblem Echoes are tied to weapons & shields in the game. Moreover, all the Rings have the Renewal Skill. In order to learn the skills, equip an item & engage in battles. You should see a small bar under the gear that tracks how far along you are.

Do note that if you un-equip the gear; you will lose the skill until you re-equip the item or another piece of gear associated with the same skill. Moreover, each unit must learn his/her own skills. For instance, if Alm learns Steel Bow skill on a piece of equipment and pass it down to Tobin, Tobin will have to learn the skill himself.
