Strategy

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

Shadow Dragon & the Blade of Light

To get Falchion later in the game, you need the Lightsphere and Starsphere from Chapter 19. Without them, make sure you have a character near 20 strength to beat the final boss. You might need Power Rings from the secret shop to boost a unit's strength. See Chapter 25's strategy for more info.

Shadow Dragon

Combat and Engagement:

  • Advance northward cautiously; wait for enemies to come into range rather than charging in. Pull back if you're close to being overrun.
  • Focus on leveling up units like Tiki or Est. There are plenty of flying units for bow users to gain experience here as well.
  • Deal with reinforcements as they approach, keeping an eye out for Ridersbane-wielding Dracoknights.
  • Pull Generals one at a time to better handle the critical hit-prone Sniper.
  • Use a unit with over 19 defense to absorb potential critical hits.
  • Alternatively, this chapter can be easily solo'd with a General with 28 or more Defense. Due to the enemies swapping out Silver for Brave, their raw attack has actually decreased; there is only a single Paladin with 31 Attack able to harm a capped or near-cap General, for minimal damage at that. As such, as long as your General has 15-16 Luck to avoid crit from the Thoron Mages, he can solo the map on his own due to the inability of the enemy to damage him, using Gradivus to OHKO the Mages if warped in or baiting them out one at a time if he walks up the map.

Secret Shop and Armory:

  • Situated in the northeast on the lone plain surrounded by mountains. This shop offers highly valuable stat-enhancing items.
  • Invest wisely in items that supplement your units' weaknesses, such as Speedwings for Linde/Merric or Energy Drops for Caeda.
  • Use the Silver Card to halve the cost of these items.
  • This is the last chance to buy Silver Axes and Killer Axes from the armory.

Boss - Orridyon:

  • Orridyon is a straightforward target who's weak to magic, Ridersbane, the Rapier, or Tiki.
