Strategy

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

This is it, your final battle. If you've been saving anything like stat boosters or relic weapons for a rainy day, it's time to take out your umbrella. Nemesis gets insane stat boosts for each of the resurrected 10 Elites still standing, so your primary objective is to kill every last one of them. Immediately start knocking down the enemies closest to your position. Claude should have no trouble taking out Blaiddyd on turn 1. After the west side of the map is secure, split up and start making your way across the north and south edges, killing anyone who gets in your way. The chests are nice to have if you want, but not really necessary. Send some fliers across the swamp to take out the Elites down that way. Don't worry too much about the swamp; that random guy must have been allergic to something, because it only takes 10% of your HP every turn. Goneril is the next Elite to step up to the plate. He'll probably kill anyone he faces in a single strike, if he can actually hit them. Put a fast swordsman on the stronghold Blaiddyd once occupied and run right over him. Other high-priority targets in the center include Gloucester (who likes to spam Physic) and the two ballistae. Up on the north side, Lamine is very dangerous to approach due to her Bolting; send a reasonably bulky mounted unit to dart in and kill her before she becomes too much of a pain. Watch out for her Dark Rafail Gem, which can halve any damage she takes. Once she's dead, the swamp vanishes, making your life a little easier. On the south side, the only real notable enemies are the Demonic Beast and Odesse. Try to deal with Odesse before he summons more Demonic Beasts. Maintain a controlled pace as you make your way towards Nemesis. Once you kill all 10 Elites, move in and destroy Nemesis to claim your total victory.
