Strategies for all Difficulties

There are three paths to go upward from, and you start off with your units spread across the bottom. Chrom should aim to get to Anna, who’s a very capable and useful unit quickly, and so should take the middle route. Anna should be able to protect herself until then. Be wary of the Archer and Mage combos as you go upward.

Talk to Anna with Chrom to recruit her instantly. She can also unlock the chests on the level if you didn’t bring a thief. There will be an enemy Thief who will make a run for a chest and leave soon after, so you should work to ambush him if possible. What the Thief takes will affect the priority of your chase, though.

There are a lot of terrain advantages to make use of. Anna can unlock doors. Be wary, though, as your flying units cannot actually traverse some of the walls – you will see if you check their movement range.

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.
