As it is a prologue level, there shouldn’t be any difficulty, even on Lunatic mode. Get used to how moving units around works, as the boss does not move at all, and so you can pace yourself. Feel free to get used to the menus, the way Player/Enemy phases work, etc.

If it is your first time, small tutorials will pop up on the bottom screen, the images alone should give you the gist of what is being said. When you’re ready to go on, it may be helpful to just pair up Avatar with Chrom (select Avatar, then move next to Chrom and choose “Pair Up”).

After that, just move Chrom and your Avatar (or just one of them if you paied up) towards Validar on your first turn. Then on your second turn, move them adjacent to Validar and select “Attack”.

To finish off Validar easily, make sure you’ve paired up and Chrom is the active unit (if not, select “Switch” immediately after moving) and then press X or Y to switch his weapon from his initial Rapier to the Silver Sword, before fighting.

Once Validar falls, the chapter ends.

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.

Inside our detailed guide you will find:

  • How to complete every campaign map.
  • The tactics needed to survive Lunatic difficulty!
  • How to recruit every character (with full character stats).
