Strategy

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

Maddening strategy:

Recommended personnel: Byleth (default), Edelgard (default), Jeritza, Dancer x1, Long-range mage x1, Sniper x1, Healer x1, War Master or Grappler x1, Assassin x1

Recommended equipment: Sword of the Creator (fully repaired), Dragon Claws, Evasion Rings, Critical Rings, Accuracy Rings, Legendary Equipment (Mercurius, Parthia, Gradavius, Hauteclere – if available), The Inexhaustible (Brave Bows and Hunter’s Volley also works), Spear of Assal, Pure Water

Recommended abilities/combat arts/gambits: Counterattack (Jeritza – if unavailable, Retribution gambit), Impregnable Wall, Monster Breaker combat arts (equip all that are available), Lancebreaker, Warp

The battle begins with a warning from both Edelgard and Hubert to proceed cautiously and beware that the Knights of Serios have yet to join the battle. We’ll be taking their advice.

Your group is split into two groups. Note that the shoal area hinders movement for your group but you can also use it to your advantage later on when the Knights of Serios likewise will have to cross it as well in order to reach your group.

Take a moment and put your cursor over the different enemies on the map. You will notice Swordmasters and Paladins who have no movement range. These enemies can transform into Demonic Beasts which will be described in more detail shortly.

Our first objective is to reunite our two groups so move the southern group up to the northern group using the bridge on the left. Meanwhile, there is a mage with Bolting surrounded by other mages in the middle of the map. If Jeritza has mastered his Death Knight class, he will have access to the Counterattack ability. Equip it, give him a Pure Water, move into the range of the mage with Bolting, then use a Pure Water. The remainder of your team will head north crossing the shoal area but keep this group outside the attack range of enemies during this first turn. During the enemy turn, the Bolting mage will attack Jeritza and if he has enough speed and a strong weapon equipped, he should be able to kill the Bolting mage during this turn. If Counterattack is unavailable to Jeritza (or he’s dead) you can use the Retribution gambit to achieve the same effect.

Our next objective is to kill the group of four mages that surrounded the Bolting mage. Move your group within range to accomplish this and everyone else should continue to move north, crossing the shoal area which will take around 3-4 turns to get everyone across.

At the end of turn two, one of the soldiers in front of Sylvain/Great Knight Boss will turn into a Demonic Beast (this cannot be prevented). Mercedes/Bishop Boss will appear in the northwest corner of the map on the wooden platform along with four Fortress Knights.

By turn three, some of your personnel should be near some of the enemies that have no movement range. If you do not want these enemies to turn into Demonic Beasts, make sure any that you attack can be defeated during the player turn. If you attack one but do not kill them then during the enemy turn this enemy will turn into a Demonic Beast.

At the beginning of enemy turn three two Pegasus Knights will appear in the northwest corner. Edelgard will have mentioned by this point that the enemy generals need to be defeated to avoid being overwhelmed. To stop the Pegasus Knight reinforcements, Mercedes/Bishop Boss must be killed.

Mercedes can be troublesome to defeat as she is equipped with the Rafael Gem. This prevents all critical hits and has a high chance of halving all damage received. A strategy of using a gambit on her, a gambit on the surrounding enemies (Edelgard’s Supreme Armored Co. works well here), and following up with a strong double attack (Ferdinand/Swift Strikes/Spear of Assal or Bernadetta/Hunter’s Volley/Parthia for example) can take her out. During this sequence, it’s likely one of the Pegasus Knights avoided a gambit hit or is out of range for attacks. Consider using Warp on another strong double attack character to take this Pegasus Knight out.

After taking out this group and the straggler no movement enemies nearby, approach Dedue. Beware that when you get near him (within one space of the rubble tile) he will transform into a unique Demonic Beast with very high health. If you don't want to deal with the bother of fighting him in this form, you can use Meteor or Bolting to pick him off from safety and prevent him from transforming. If you have a high defense/speed character with good movement (Jeritza) he should be able to safely approach, take a hit from Dedue Demonic Beast and back off. If this wasn’t enough, enemy reinforcements will appear on the northern edge of the map near Dimitri (two Bow Knights and two Paladins). During this same turn, another no movement enemy near Sylvain/Great Knight Boss may turn into a Demonic Beast. Don’t worry about Sylvain’s group for now.

Back as much of your group off as possible as Dedue, the Bow Knights, Paladins, and Dark Knights, Dark Bishop, and Fortress Knight are automatically aggro. The one exception is to once again have your long-range Counterattack character(s) (Jeritza or Retribution gambit) within range of the Bow Knights. If its Jeritza, equipping him with the Scythe of Sariel gives him a high chance of hitting both Bow Knights with a critical hit, thereby solving a major pain of not having to deal with extremely long attack range enemies as you decide how to defeat Dedue and the approaching group of enemies.

Dedue Demonic Beast should not be too troublesome to deal with after an armor break and the accompanying enemies are defeated/immobilized. He is susceptible to attacks like Mire that lower his defense and are outside his attack range of two spaces. Windsweep prevents counterattacks but this also should not be a concern at this point as your stronger personnel should be able to take a hit from him without dying. Gambits that inflict poison work well between turns for additional damage. Dragon Claws work exceptionally well after an armor break.

After these enemies are defeated, you can safely open the treasure chests if you want. The southern chest contains a Brave Axe and the northern chest contains a Brave Bow.

As you near Dimitri, Rhea and the Knights of Seiros will appear to the southeast and southwest with two Golem Demonic Beasts. There will also be Pegasus Knights, Great Knights, a Holy Knight, and a Gremory with Bolting. These enemies are pretty far away and you will have a turn or two to prepare for these enemies.

If the majority of your group is near Dimitri, you will likely battle with a Golem first. It is susceptible to axes and your typical Monster Break abilities. Magic cannot damage it until its armor is broken. The mage with Bolting with likely be within range too. Remember to use our previous Counterattack/Retribution strategy to take her out and you will get a Giant Shell as a reward.

Rhea will likely be nearby. She comes equipped with Counterattack and Vantage and is difficult to hit with gambits due to her high charm. Approach her cautiously with only your strongest units. Byleth with the Sword of the Creator and the Sublime Heaven combat art works well as always. Jeritza with the Scythe of Sariel works too. Once she is defeated, all the enemies that appeared on the map when Rhea did will retreat with her with the exception of the Golems. Take out any remaining straggler enemies that approach, including the Golems, before making your final approach towards Dimitri and Sylvain.

It’s up to you to decide who you wan to fight first. Since Dimitri is closest to our group, we will deal with him first.

In what is very obvious, Dimitri is extremely dangerous and has a high avoid rate. Increase your chances of landing a hit by surrounding him and performing linked attacks. Some of your higher charm characters will still be able to connect with gambits but don’t be afraid to try even lower hit ones. A few of these will connect and lower his health. Dimitri’s one weakness is a lower resistance. If you have a mage with good dexterity and an accuracy ring equipped, this will likely be the killing blow after his health has been decreased enough with gambits and combat arts like Windsweep.

After Dimitri is defeated, Sylvain/Great Knight Boss and the three Demonic Beasts are all that remains. Use the Impregnable Wall gambit on any character to aggro this last enemy commander to the rest of your group and then finish him off.

Trivia

  • Dimitri has a unique battle model and set of portraits for this chapter depicting him without the eyepatch he has in all other routes. Similarly, Rhea uses the Saint class and wears her Seiros outfit, neither of which can be seen in other routes.
    • There are class sprites in the game's files for both characters' unique appearances in this chapter; these are never used for unknown reasons.
