This is a guide to the authority skill in Fire Emblem Three Houses (FE3H). This guide will explain what Authority does, and how it helps your units and their battalions, as well as how to raise your Authority Stat.

What Does Authority Do?

Allows You to Equip Better Battalions

FE3H Battalion
By definition, Authority is the power to enforce and give orders. The Authority skill in Fire Emblem works the same way, in that the better skill your unit has in Authority, the better commands that unit can issue to his / her battalion. The higher the Authority skill of your unit is, the better battalions he/she can equip. This means better gambits for your team.

Increases the Mt of Battalions

FE3H Authority Skill
By increasing the Authority skill, that unit also learns the Authority skill which increases the MT of battalions. Having a Lvl 5 Authority skill means all your battalions will deal 10 extra damage, which is a huge boost to your gambit ability.

The Authority is somewhat similar to the Charm stat, which is also directly involved with battalions. For more information about Charm, see the link below.

How to Raise Authority

Keep Using Gambits in Battle

Battalions
The Authority skill levels up in while in battle the more you use your battalions.

Keep a Battalion Equipped

Equipping a Battalion will also (slowly) increase your Authority. Make sure to always equip a battalion to your units and replenish them before every fight to maximize the amount of EXP you get in Authority.

Take Classes and Seminars

FE3H
Classes will allow units to boost their authority skill either by having Byleth teach them in the Authority field, or by setting it as the student's goal. Having Authority as the student's goal will also allow them to attend Seminars that teach Authority, and Byleth always joins seminars that he/she doesn't teach himself/herself.
