The Golden Gaffe

Strategies for all difficulties

This level is not designed to challenge; it’s simply designed as a place to farm gold. An average run of the level will net you in excess of 100,000 gold – a princely sum – and it’s one of the easiest things you could imagine, as long as you don’t bring characters with weak Resistance with you…

You have ten characters and there are twelve “spaces”. Ergo it’s not entirely possible to plug the stage up. Best idea is to move near the bottlenecks and then plug them corresponding to where enemies are trying to move, while attacking with ranged fighters as much as possible.

The enemies in this stage will only try to run; they will not initiate an attack against you. Therefore if you’re trying to “maximise” a run you’re trying to interrupt their movement just as much as attacking them head on.

Either way it doesn’t matter much. You’ll earn a mountain of dough anyway, and you can re-run the level infinitely! There is some amusing dialogue here to experience, but only those who want to earn cash quickly will play it more than once.

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.
