Strategies for all Difficulties

This Bonus Box chapter allows you to recruit Gangrel – the first nemesis of the game. You have to speak to him three times with Chrom in order to recruit him, and in the meantime ensure you do not kill him.

As you proceed northwest toward the boss, get the Seraph Robe from the village, and keep enemy ranges in mind – especially Gangrel so you don’t end up killing him. The chapter should be straightforward aside from the above. Keep flying units’ ranges in mind especially when proceeding.

You should un-equip weapons when facing Gangrel; he uses a Levin Sword but may come up to you anyway, in which case you would likely kill him with how strong your units probably are at this point in the 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.
