Strategies for all Difficulties

Be sure to bring someone with Locktouch, or someone with keys to open some doors and chests on the level. There is one door key in case you do not have any, but no chest keys.

Unlike a lot of the sidequests, this one still has basic class enemies on it. This should make it easier. Your main objective is to get up to Kjelle before she’s done in. Being a Knight in a room with archers, though, she will survive for a little while.

As you go up the hallway, you can send individual units to block the corridors and take care of whatever enemies may be in there. Be wary of enemies from the stairways, as usual.

You should be able to make it to the door by Turn 4 or 5. Be wary of all the reinforcements that will appear on Turn 5 from the stairways; it is adviseable you prepare in advance and get Kjelle by that time.

Prioritize the chests after you make sure your team is secure. The boss will not move, so do not worry about the level ending without you having reached the chests. Take care of Cassius after you meet all your objectives.

Aside from the reinforcements, this level should be easier than the other children-recruitment quests.

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.
