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

The ideal strategy for this chapter, as with most in Thracia's lategame, is to use Warp to complete the chapter in one turn. You will need at least four uses of Warp and three units with an A-rank in staves, and it is also advisable to bring Tina to steal Cohen's Berserk staff. Tina will need at least 13 magic to steal Berserk, so you will most likely need another staff user with Ensorcel. Warp units to the southwest and southeast houses, as they contain a Warp and Rescue staff, respectively. Warp a mage with high hit rate to the castle to kill Cohen, as he has 94 avoid and 25 defense, but only 12 magic. He cannot counterattack as he starts with Blizzard equipped. Asbel with Grafcalibur is guaranteed to one-round Cohen if he hits his second attack. Warp Leif onto the castle and finish the chapter.
