Strategies for all Difficulties

By turn 7, the Bullion (M) chest will be gone, the Energy Drop and Rescue at Turn 10, and the Second Seal at Turn 11. If you really want these items, be sure to rush to them before those turns. If you do not make it, these items are all available at stores, so do not prioritize them too much.

The map is very long, and you have to race against time before all the land is swallowed up by the lava. You should rush the boss as quick as you can or risk losing your units to the burn. The lava zones are opposite of each other.

You will notice on Turn 1, the top left and bottom right are gone. Turn 2 will see the bottom and top middle gone. Then turn 3 will see the top right and bottom left gone. You will see it goes in order, weaving until both sides meet at the middle.

There will be a “safe zone” near the lower middle area, if you start to run out of room; placing your units here would be best.

Be wary of the flying units on this level, as they won’t be limited like most of your units will be. There are plenty of Warriors and Sages that will get in your way as well that you should be wary off, and will need a well balanced team to plow through them.

Any units with Galeforce should run as far ahead as they can to clear the way as another team follows up behind to sweep.

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.
