Seminars Guide

Instructor's at the monastery will lead seminars every week on their specialized skills.

Seminars Overview

During the Academy Phase, all of the various professors and instructors at the Officer's Academy (including Byleth) will host seminars every week. Attending these seminars will cost your entire free day. Each instructor specializes in two skills, usually in line with their lore. During the War Phase, any recruited unit will host seminars. All seminar attendees will gain 50% of their motivation bar.

Attendence

Who attends seminars.

Seminar Attendence

There is a minimum of 3 attendees and a maximum of 6 attendees per seminar. Byleth will always attend a seminar that they are not hosting.

Students with at least one goal that matches the seminar's skills will attend. If there are not at least 3 people attending based on goals, other units will be randomly selected. It seems that this priority is determined based on skill boons and motivation. Similarly, if there are more than 6 students that have a matching skill goal, 6 will be selected, likely prioritized by boons and motivation. A unit will never attend a seminar if both of their skill ranks are higher or equal to the instructor.

From personal experience, it seems that having matching boons has more of an impact than motivation in determining who attends, although the game explicitly mentions that motivation affects it.

Skill Experience

How much skill experience seminars give.

Seminar Skill Experience

The base amount of skill experience earned is a set value that depends on the skill rank difference between the attendee and the instructor. The larger the skill rank difference, the more the gains. If a unit has a bane in the skill, they will only receive 50% of the experience. Conversely, if a unit has a boon in the skill, they will receive a bonus 50%.

The set experience values are listed in the table below.
