Silver Corrupted enemies will reward bonus experience points and skill points to the unit that defeats them, making them a great way to give a boost to underleveled characters or power-level your favorite troops. Keep in mind that only the character that deals the final killing blow will get the bonus. It may be best to weaken them with a strong unit and have a weaker unit finish them off to maximize your gains.

Gold Corrupted aren’t necessarily rarer than their Silver counterparts, and they offer a different type of reward entirely. Defeating a Gold Corrupted enemy will net you a large sum of money when you slay them. While cash isn’t as useful as skill points, having some extra money will make acquiring gear much easier, especially if you’ve recruited a ton of characters for your army.

Fire Emblem Engage is available now on Nintendo Switch.
