After being hit with losing your Emblem Rings in Chapter 10 and then gaining several new allies in Chapter 11, Chapter 12 had to do something to keep the momentum going. This comes with the introduction of a new battle mechanic, which can impede your movement, making it hard to make your way around the map. The guide below goes over how to easily complete Chapter 12, The Sentinels in Fire Emblem Engage.
How to Reach The Sentinels
Once you complete Chapters 10 and 11, you will be able to enter Solm. The Sentinels is the first mission in the country. Be sure to go back to Somniel before jumping into the chapter to make use of the Arena and get some buffs using Cafe Terrace dishes.
Chapter 12 - The Sentinels Walkthrough
Once you figure out the gimmick in Chapter 12, the whole battle is a cakewalk. There are no strong Emblem users on this map and no hard objectives. The only thing you need to focus on doing is heading toward the three NPCs and keeping them from getting killed. Luckily, they move away from the bad guys on their own, so you have a decent amount of time to reach them before anything bad happens.
Three new allies will also join you in this battle , , and . These three units can help take down many of the units in this area with ease, making this battle even easier. On top of these units, you may want to bring fliers like and into battle to negate the effects of the maps quicksand.
Quicksand is the major obstacle on this map, as the basic enemies are easy to counter with your units. The way quicksand works is if you end the turn standing in it, then you will only be able to move a single block your next turn, and you will be restricted to only moving one of four directions, up, down, left, and right. This will keep occurring until you are out of the quicksand altogether.
To avoid the quicksand, simply don’t end any character’s turn standing in it. Either cross to the other side or wait until your next turn to move. To win this stage, you simply need to defeat all enemies, including the reinforcements. This is an easy task that can be done rather quickly if you split your units up into a few groups and avoid being trapped in the quicksand.
