Your defense man. Pairing him and Frederick together in the early game makes for an incredible wall for the front lines. Be wary of magic around this guy, as expected of his class.

Interesting that he can become a Thief and hence an Assassin/Trickster, as well as a War Monk. This makes him open to an insane amount of useful skills that when on a General or Great Knight, would just be deadly. A General with Acrobat, Lethality, and Renewal for instance.

Character wise, he lacks presence, and this joke carries over quite a bit in his support conversations. He should have been the only character with the “Shade” or “Stillness” skill (which sadly do not exist in this game).

Join Chrom, brother to Ylisse’s empress and commander of its forces, in a fantasy world teetering on the brink of war. It’s your duty to guide a team of Ylisse’s finest soldiers - knights, mages, archers, and more - against the marauding Plegian bandits. To succeed, you will need to carefully choose the units you take into battle. As you lead your team through battles across maps that span entire kingdoms, your army will grow. Some characters are willing to join you quickly, while others may need more persuasion. Each character earns experience in battle, leveling up and gaining strength and abilities as they do so. It’s up to you to guide their moves, choose their weapons, and direct their attacks.

Inside our detailed guide you will find:

  • How to complete every campaign map.
  • The tactics needed to survive Lunatic difficulty!
  • How to recruit every character (with full character stats).
