A Cursed Relic (Japanese: 呪われし遺産 Cursed Heritage) is a downloadable content paralogue chapter in Fire Emblem: Three Houses. It is available from Chapter 8 to Chapter 11. In order to attempt this paralogue, the player must have recruited Constance or Yuri and neither one must have fallen in battle previously. In this chapter, Constance travels to Empire territory to negotiate the transfer of the Fetters of Dromi to the Church of Seiros.

Plot

Main article: A Cursed Relic/Script

Byleth and Yuri find a completely elated Constance. She explains that she has been ordered to travel to House Gerth of the Adrestian Empire. Constance holds a grudge against House Gerth due to the fact that her family, House Nuvelle, was destroyed in the war against Dagda and Brigid while Gerth retained its prosperity; she hopes for the chance to give Duke Gerth a tongue-lashing. Her mission is to obtain a Hero's Relic in Gerth's possession and return it to the Church of Seiros, which feels that the Relic should belong to them. Yuri further reveals that most of the Relics were returned to the descendants of the 10 Elites ages ago and speculates on how the Relic ended up in Gerth's possession. The group sets out for Imperial territory.

When the party arrives in the Empire, they discover that Duke Gerth is under attack by a pack of brigands and members of "those who slither in the dark" led by Myson. The group drives off the enemies and rescues the Duke. Afterwards, Duke Gerth gives the group the Fetters of Dromi in order to repay them for saving him and repay a debt he owes to House Nuvelle. When the party returns to Garreg Mach Monastery, Yuri reveals that he bears the Crest of Aubin required to use the Fetters of Dromi and convinces Byleth to let him make use of the Relic.

Beginning log

The church has asked Constance to retrieve a mysterious Relic from Duke Gerth, the Empire's Minister of Foreign Affairs. You and Yuri accompany her to the negotiations.

Strategy

This section details unofficial strategies that may help with completion of the chapter. This may not work for everybody.

Maddening strategy (can be completed on a normal play through without needing New Game+):

Recommended abilities: Warp (Lysithea, Lindhardt, Manuela, Hapi), Stride and Impregnable Wall gambits, Silence (Yuri, Marianne, Manuela), Restore, Physic (having a secondary unit with this ability besides your healer can come in handy – Hapi, Dorothea)

Recommended equipment: Evasion Ring, Accuracy Ring

Recommended personnel: Byleth (default), Yuri (default), Constance (default), tank x1, Dancer x1, Flier x1, healer x1, high speed/avoid unit x1 (Assassin), long-range mage x1 (Valkyrie, Lysithea w/ Thyrsus staff), Canto unit x1

It’s not recommended to attempt this paralogue until late in Part One (February). Your units should all be above level 20 and in Advanced or Special classes so they have the necessary strength, speed, and defense to handle the enemies.

Your starting position is the biggest issue with Duke Gerth very far away. He can handle a few enemies so don’t fret if he starts fighting. Immediately use the Stride gambit on your tank and high movement and avoid personnel. Use the Warp ability to warp your tank to fight the two axe and sword wielders in the middle part of the map (the section where there is a Thicket space every other middle spot). Kill or use gambits on the mage, archer, and axe wielder closest to your group. Move the rest of your team east around the edifice towards Gerth and the boss. Ignore the two archers and axe wielder to the north for now.

Be aware that once Myson is defeated a large amount of reinforcements will appear around the edges of the map. It’s important to make sure Gerth is safe before you defeat Myson to prevent Gerth from being killed. Keep your Restore unit near your group even using items like the March Ring or having your Dancer give them another turn to keep them within range of your personnel. A few of the enemies have gambits and rather than lose one because they’re immobilized, use your Restore ability and get them back in the fight.

At the end of round two, Gerth will kill an enemy thief with ease and the enemy will turn into a Demonic Beast. Myson and his group may also start approaching your team and Gerth at the end of the round also. If you want to delay the reinforcements, consider using gambits on Myson to immobilize him and hold off on defeating him.

During the enemy turn after Myson is defeated, the reinforcements will move in. This is where most players get tripped up due to the sheer amount of enemies you’re dealing with. Make sure Gerth is across the bridges (you can use Rescue or movement combat arts to bring him closer) then uses the three bridges as bottlenecks to whittle down the number of enemies you’re dealing with. This is where long-range mages and fliers with Canto can come in handy as you’ll be able to safely eliminate enemies from a distance. Also, the Demonic Beasts will be unable to cross the bridges due to their size, which means you can wait to deal with them until all the approaching enemies are eliminated. If some your personnel aren’t strong enough to bottleneck the bridges, use the Impregnable Wall gambit for a few turns until you have cleared out the enemies. Abilities like Silence come in handy here as well and don’t be afraid to use a Dancer and double up on some these tactics during a single turn. Once you’ve eliminated the approaching enemies, you’re safe to clear out the map at your leisure.
