The Dark Pontifex Lives

The Dragon's Table (Japanese: 竜の祭壇 The Dragon's Altar) is the twenty-second chapter of Fire Emblem: New Mystery of the Emblem. In Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem Book II, the same map is the first of three maps comprising the second "endgame" chapter.

Plot

Main articles: The Dragon's Table/Script and The Dragon's Table/Conversations

The Altean Army has just entered the Dragon's Table. Gotoh warns Marth that Gharnef's troops are very powerful and that the longer the battle goes on, the army might become overwhelmed by the sheer number of troops. He introduces Marth to Nagi, who seems oddly familiar to Marth. Nagi lends the army her strength, and they battle their way through the Dragon's Table.

At the end of the battle, they encounter stairs, which lead further in. They move on to get closer to Gharnef and retrieve the divine blade Falchion, which is essential in the battle against Medeus.

Strategy

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

This map is notorious for its many reinforcements. Many Fire Dragons and Mage Dragons await, who can be hard to deal with. Bring lots of Wyrmslayers and Dragonpikes, and legendary weapons will help as well. Tiki and Nagi are very helpful, as they do effective damage against dragons with their Divinestones. The Fire Dragons do physical damage, while the Mage Dragons do magical damage and are immune to any magical attacks. Their weapons are 1–2 range in Lunatic.
