Strategy

This map is one of very few in Gaiden and Echoes: Shadows of Valentia where the map objective is not rout the enemy, but rather defeat the commander. As such, the player will want to prioritize killing Rudolf above all else.

The enemy composition and their position differs dramatically between Normal and Hard mode. In Gaiden and Shadows of Valentia Normal mode, Rudolf will appear within the walls just northeast of player starting positions. As he appears so close, it is possible to attack him immediately through means such as Warp, bows, and the Mage Ring combined with long ranged spells like Thunder and Sagittae.

In Shadows of Valentia's Hard mode, Rudolf starts in a completely different position, far north of Alm's army, making such strategies impossible. In addition, Rudolf has much higher Resistance, making mages much less effective as well, though they can still be quite useful as they can strike him without getting countered; given that he has an immense 24 Speed and will thus double nearly everyone, as well as a very high crit rate thanks to his good skill and luck, avoiding counterattacks from him is very desirable.

Note that while Rudolf will initiate combat with Alm, he will not actually attack him. Alm can thus attack him without fear of being killed in the process. In Shadows of Valentia, Alm also has Double Lion at his disposal, making him incredibly valuable in defeating Rudolf.
