Name Class Level Recruit
Yen’fay Swordmaster 20 NPC: Talk with Say’ri

Strategies for all Difficulties

Bring Say’ri (assuming she’s still alive). She is the only one who can recruit Yen’fay. A fairly enclosed map with quite a few high Speed and Skill enemies (Swordmasters, Assassins, and hard hitting Heroes, as well as Tricksters).

There are no magic enemies on this map, so high Defense and Speed units are recommended. A General can usually plow through pretty easily, especially if paired up with a speedy unit.

To recruit Yen’fay, speak to him with Say’ri; you will want to get to him fairly quickly so he doesn’t rush off on his own to get killed. He will come to you if you have enemies nearby. He becomes playable right after the conversation.

As long as your units are grouped, and have a good balance of speed and defense, they will clear this map very easily. It becomes a steady march north to defeat the boss after Yen’fay is secure.

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.
