Strategy

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

Castle Edda

Roberto's squad moves to attack Chalphy immediately. Roberto himself has Follow-Up, Accost, and a Brave Sword, and any unit with less than 24 attack speed may face four attacks or more. Tyrfing, Balmung, and Forseti boost their user's speed, and naturally fast units such as Ced or Larcei may have the speed to double him. Alternately, if Roberto can only attack from 2-range, he will equip his Javelin to attack, weighing him down to 18 attack speed.

The Dark Mages near Chalphy have 16 magic and have Fenrirs or Silence staves; they have 30 attack with Fenrir and can silence any magic user with less than 16 resistance. Most of the Dark Mages can be killed with physical 2-range, but some are too far away to do so—Fee or Hermina can deal with them without much issue, as they can fly and have high resistance; Altena can also fly and may be able to one-shot the Dark Mages with Gáe Bolg, but she has low resistance and will likely be unable to double the Silence-wielding Dark Mages. Additionally, the Dark Mages outside of 2-range for land units from the home castle will only be in 2-range for Fee and Hermina to the east and out of range for all fliers to the northwest; every flier will need the Leg Ring or to be danced in order to reach the Dark Mages on turn 1.

Once Edda is seized, an army from Dozel will approach Chalphy from the northwest; high-avoid units—particularly ones with swords for weapon triangle advantage—can be placed at the rampart in advance to intercept the army. Alternately, a high-avoid unit can guard Chalphy—where their avoid will be boosted significantly—and wait for the Dozel army to arrive.

The road to Edda is blocked by three Snipers, four Forrests, one Swordmaster (Boyce), nine Bishops—four with Bolting, four with Meteor, and one (Rodan) with Sleep—six High Priests with Sleep, and three High Priests with Fortify, with Juphiel on the castle with Fenrir.

Rodan has 18 magic and the Sleep-wielding High Priests have 21, meaning a unit will need at least 21 resistance to not be put to sleep; when promoted to Knight Lord and with Tyrfing equipped, Seliph will have at least 23 resistance; Ares has 4 resistance at base, gains 5 from promotion, and gains 10 with Mystletainn equipped, with 19 total—on average, Ares will gain 4 resistance from level-ups by reaching level 20, and has a 99% chance to have gained at least 2 resistance through level-ups by level 30. Alternatively, Ares may simply pick up the Barrier Ring, which brings his resistance up to a minimum of 23. Any unit put to sleep will be vulnerable until they wake up, or until another unit uses Restore on them; however, most units capable of using Restore are infantry and may be too far behind to use it—Leif can use Restore and has a mount after promotion, and Fee upon promotion or Nanna can use Restore if Claude was their father, though Nanna's brother Diarmuid will not be able to use the Valkyrie staff.

Seliph with Tyrfing or Ares with Mystletainn will likely have the best chance of surviving against multiple enemies, particularly if they are on the nearby mountain tile and have the Shield and Barrier Rings; Tyrfing boosts Seliph's speed—and thus, his avoid—and grants Renewal, and Seliph has Nihil, preventing Boyce from activating Critical or Sol; Ares has Vantage and Critical, potentially allowing him to defeat an enemy before they can attack. Both units, however, have a chance of dying while in range of so many enemies, so it will likely be safer for Seliph to take Edda castle as soon as possible. If Leif is promoted and given Rescue, he can teleport Seliph closer to the castle. If Lene or her substitute Laylea dance for Seliph and Leif, Leif can move closer to Edda while keeping Seliph in range of Rescue, allowing Seliph start outside of enemy range and take Edda; giving Seliph, Leif, or Lene or Laylea the Leg Ring can increase the flexibility of their potential starting positions.

In order to seize Edda, Juphiel must be defeated; 81 attack is needed to one-shot Juphiel, or 47 to two-shot and more than -2 attack speed when Juphiel has Fenrir equipped or more than 6 when he has Jormungand equipped. Units other than Seliph can fight Juphiel, but will require fighting more of the units guarding Edda. With Tyrfing equipped, Seliph will always have enough speed to double Juphiel. Seliph will always have at least 5 strength at base, and Tyrfing has 30 might; Seliph will likely have slightly more strength inherited from Sigurd, gains 5 strength from promotion, and has a 96% chance of gaining at least 7 strength from level-ups by reaching promotion level. Alternately, the Brave Sword is more accurate and only requires 30 attack to one-round Juphiel, but has lower might than Tyrfing and does not boost Seliph's speed. If Seliph defeats Jupheil, he can seize Edda on the same turn with Canto; seizing Edda will cause all Edda units to despawn.

Castle Dozel

Upon the seizure of Edda, the Dozel army will emerge. Fisher and a squad of Axe Knights attack Edda through mountains, while Brian and Great Knights attack Chalphy.

Fisher and his squad pose a minor threat to Seliph; each of them carry axes—which are heavy, somewhat inaccurate, and have weapon triangle disadvantage against swords—they move towards the castle Seliph just seized, and they move through mountains which Seliph can move onto for a significant avoid boost. At base level with a Slim Sword, Fisher has 57 attack against Seliph, and significantly less with level-ups, a promotion to Knight Lord, and Tyrfing.

The Grau Ritter have Silver Axes, and have very high attack; they move near mountain terrain and a sword-user will have very high avoid against them, but they are also near roads, which penalize avoid. The Grau Ritter all have Follow-Up as well, though the high weight of Silver Axes means that units need only attack speed to not be doubled.

Brian uses Helswath and has high stats; with Helswath equipped, he has 57 attack, 47 defense, and 27 resistance. Brian has Follow-Up, but Helswath has 20 weight lowering his attack speed to 6; however, he has a 46% chance of activating Accost while at full HP before accounting for his opponent's attack speed, and will likely defeat any unit if accost activates. As Brian lacks Nihil, a unit can deal significant damage with the Ridersbane or with a critical hit, but most physical weapons will otherwise do 1 damage that he will heal off with his Renewal Band. Magic-users may be able to deal more significant damage to his lower resistance, but they will face 57 physical attack, potentially twice. Brian will have 8 hit against Shannan with the Balmung at base, though Shannan will only deal 1 damage to him; with Mystletainn, Ares will have at least 42 avoid against Brian and 72 on a mountain, and will deal at least 27 damage with a critical hit; a unit with Forseti deals 3 damage to Briand and has 30 avoid, boosted to 60 on a mountain tile, all only from Forseti itself. A unit with at least B staves and 28 magic can use Sleep on Brian, though only Sage has a high enough magic cap; Hawk needs the Magic Ring and one point of magic to reach that; based on who his father is, Ced may not realistically be able to reach 28 magic, or may be closer to 28 than Hawk. If no unit can defeat Brian, a unit with high avoid can guard Chalphy and stall Brian while Seliph seizes Dozel castle.

Dozel castle is guarded by Dagon, who is statistically identical to Juphiel. There are fewer units near Dozel castle, so more units can attack Dagon at once sooner. If Brian is still present when Dozel is seized, he will be routed.

Castle Friege and the Beige Ritter

Upon the seizure of Dozel, the Friege army will emerge, though they do not approach Chalphy; this allows time for units to recuperate and for infantry to catch up to the front line.

Hilda commands the Gelb Ritter, an army of Barons with Silver Lances and another item; fourteen of the Barons have Thoron tomes, the other three have Fortify staves. The Barons have 40 physical attack and 30 magical attack, and a unit on a forest or mountain will avoid many of their attacks. However, their Pavise skill has a 25% chance to trigger, and with four Fortify users, any Barons that survive will likely be restored to full health. Seliph with Tyrfing, Ares with Mystletainn, the user of Forseti, or a unit with Astra or Adept and an Armorslayer can fairly easily defeat each of the Barons.

Hilda is weaker compared to the previous chapter; she has the same stats, but lacks the Speed Ring or the avoid boost of a castle. While she has Fortify, three other Barons do as well, and any injured enemy will be fully healed before Hilda can heal. Hilda has 50 attack from capped magic and a Bolganone; however, she cannot double anything with 12 or more attack speed. With an Armorslayer, Shannan will deal at least 29 damage to Hilda—not enough to two-shot her, but enough to defeat her if Astra activates.

Scipio leads the Beige Ritter, which arrives from the south border once a Friege unit is engaged in battle or if a unit nears the mountain pass south of Friege castle. The Beige Ritter will despawn when Friege is seized; it is possible for Seliph to seize Friege soon after or just before they arrive. However, as there are many Barons with a decent chance to activate Pavise, it is likely Seliph's progress to Friege castle will be interrupted, and Scipio and his troops will become a meaningful threat.

Scipio and his troops are all locked to 2-range; most units can attack one of the Beige Ritter without retaliation, and units with strong 2-range—such as Febail with Yewfelle, Leif, or a Forseti-user—can stay on a forest and safely defeat many of them. Scipio has a Killer Bow with a 22% chance to crit, doubling his attack from 40 to 80; the Killer Bow is also highly accurate at 100 hit, giving him a chance to kill a unit even on defensive terrain. Scipio has 20 attack speed and Accost, potentially allowing him to attack a unit more than twice, increasing the chances for him to crit. A unit with Nihil—Seliph, Larcei, Scáthach, and any children of Alec—will prevent Scipio from critting, and can safely can safely engage him at range or bait him from a forest. Once baited out, Scipio can be rendered helpless by boxing him in with four units adjacent to him.

Baran guards Friege castle; like Dagon, he is statistically identical to Juphiel, and can be defeated the same way.

After Friege is seized, the Thracian army arrives close to Chalphy; if Altena is not near Chalphy, she can be purchase the Return Band from the nearest castle to return to Chalphy, or she can be sent there with the Return or Warp staves.

Belhalla

Upon the seizure of Friege, Ishtar will emerge from Belhalla and immediately move to Friege, while Manfroy will release a hypnotized Julia. The Deadlords and Manfroy's Dark Mage guards also show up at this time, but stay around their castles.

Ishtar's offense is slightly stronger than in the previous chapter, and her HP and defense are significantly better. Ishtar has 60 attack, 30 attack speed, 37 resistance, a 50% chance of activating Adept, and 224 hit including her authority bonus; most units cannot double her, cannot avoid her, and do not have the resistance and HP to withstand two hits from her, and magic-users will deal very little damage to her. However, Ishtar has 18 defense and 70 HP, and requires 88 attack to one-shot, 53 attack to two-shot, or 36 to four-shot with a brave weapon. Shannan can one-round her at base with Balmung if Astra activates, and with a Power Ring can two-shot her if Adept activates (60% chance), though Ishtar will one-shot him if she attacks him; he needs more than 18 additional points of HP or resistance to survive one hit—he has a 120% HP growth and 18 levels to grow, so he can be guaranteed to survive at level 30 with the Barrier Ring. At base with Mystletainn, Ares has 86 attack and a 32% chance to crit, and needs only one more strength to one-shot; Ares needs only 7 points of HP or resistance to survive one attack from Ishtar, but he cannot have the speed to prevent her from doubling or the avoid to dodge her attacks, and is unlikely to have the HP and resistance to survive two attacks. A Sage with at least 28 magic—every other staff-wielding class has too low a magic cap—can be given the Magic Ring and a Sleep or Silence staff to prevent Ishtar from attacking; Silence can be used more often with its better durability, but Sleep will prevent Ishtar from moving, thus preventing her from providing authority boosts to other enemies. Hawk has an 8% chance of reaching 28 magic by level 30; Ced has a 15% of reaching 28 magic with Lewyn as a father, 43% with Azelle, and 63% with Claude—with every other father, reaching 28 is practically impossible.

Along Ishtar are the Pegasus sisters, Meng, Bleg, and Mabel; they have identical stats, equipment, and skills, except that Meng has four authority stars and Bleg and Mabel are under her command. The three are extremely difficult to kill, as they have high bulk, 30 speed and luck, Nihil to negate bonus damage from bows, and Earth Swords that have infinite durability (rather than the normal 10 uses) to heal themselves; they also have Leg Rings to improve their already high movement, Pursuit and Adept to attack multiple times, and Critical randomly deal extra damage. Additionally, they have the ability to perform a Triangle Attack though they will usually Canto out of position for one. There is no "reliable" way to kill them – they have very high avoid, are very hard to double, and heal themselves when they land attacks. They have 31 physical attack at 1-range and 27 magical attack at 2-range; it takes 86 physical attack or 92 magical attack to one-shot them, 51 physical or 60 magical attack to two-shot them, or 38 physical attack to one-round them with a brave weapon, none of which account for potential healing between attacks.

The Belhalla soldiers are the strongest generic units in the game; they have Brave Swords, Killer Bows, Elwinds and Fortify staves. Brave Swords and Killer Bows have 100 hit—potentially boosted by Ishtar's authority—and 3 weight, meaning that the six enemies with them are capable of hitting most units at least twice. The Elwind Sages all have Adept—while they lack Follow-Up, they have a decent chance of attacking twice consecutively, and deal damage on resistance, which is low for most units. The Fortify High Priests have no weapons, and while they cannot attack, they are not weighed down and have high avoid. While any one of the generic enemies is less of a threat than Ishtar or the pegasus sisters, there are more of them, and they are a threat at the same time; they are, however, arguably the lowest priority threat, as they can be blocked at the narrow pass east of Friege while the pegasi cannot, and defeating Ishtar removes her authority boost, weakening the generic units more than defeating any single generic would.

Julia, Manfroy, and the Deadlords

Julia has 5 movement when unpromoted and takes twelve turns to reach Friege castle; when promoted, she has 6 movement, and takes ten turns to reach Friege. If Julia is promoted, she is likely to reach where Ishtar is being fought in seven or eight turns, presuming they are still being fought.

Julia should to be neutralized as safely possible, as fighting Julius without Naga is extremely tedious, unreliable, and potentially impossible. For that reason, non-lethally neutralizing Julia is the top priority so that enough time can be bought to take out Manfroy.

The more experience Julia obtained, the harder it is to safely neutralize her. Since Julia's resistance growth is extremely high, the requirement to use Sleep or Silence on her becomes higher the more she leveled up. Hawk has 22 magic at base, and Julia can reach 22 resistance as soon as level 8 and on average at level 15; the Magic Ring boosts Hawk's magic to 27—Julia's promoted magic cap—and he will need only one point of magic to always use a status staff on her, provided she does not hold the Barrier Ring. Depending on his father, Ced can have similar magic to Hawk; he has a higher magic growth with Lewyn, Azelle, or Claud as his father, and can have a higher base with any of them. The threat Julia poses to other units can be reduced in Chapter 9 by storing or selling all her weapons and giving her a Fire tome, which has the lowest might and highest weight of all tomes she can use. In battle, Julia can be boxed in with units that cannot counter her or lured away from units dangerous to her, preferably by units with high resistance.

Manfroy guards Velthomer castle, with a handful of Dark Mages armed with Hel tomes and Sleep staves. If hit by Hel, a unit with Miracle will be able to dodge every attack for the remainder of that turn; however, Miracle will not protect a unit from status staves, and they will not be safe from the Dark Mages' Sleep staves. Tyrfing grants Seliph Miracle and enough resistance to not be hit by Sleep, and he can use that to move towards Manfroy safely; however, without a kill bonus, defeating Manfroy takes at least two turns for Seliph, even with capped strength and speed, and he will be vulnerable to Hel and Fenrir during that second turn. If Seliph has a Renewal Band—one of which he can obtain in Chapter 10—he will heal at the start of each turn, and can be hit by Hel and set to 1 HP, activating Miracle and giving him 100 avoid; however, this is reliant on Seliph being hit by Hel, and there is a decent chance he will avoid each attack, and will be left vulnerable to Manroy's attack. There is a church near Velthomer castle, but it is too far from the gate for a mounted unit to reach it in one turn, even with the Leg Ring, and is inside of Manfroy's Fenrir range. A staff-user may be required to keep Seliph alive if he is otherwise alone; Leif, Nanna, and Jeanne have have relatively low resistance and may be put to sleep, while Lana, Muirne, Coirpre, and Charlot have low movement, and will struggle to quickly move past the Deadlords without entering their range. Fee or Hermina have high resistance and can use Mend after promotion, and Leif can stay out of Sleep range by using Physic. Once Manfroy is dead and Velthomer seized, Julia will stop attacking.

Once Manfroy is gone, Julia can be re-recruited by talking with Seliph. Julia is still an enemy prior to talking with Seliph; she will not be targeted by other enemies, but can be killed by other units. If Julia enters Velthomer, she will receive the Naga tome, which enables her to fight competently against Julius and the Deadlords even at base level. Each of the Deadlords is has incredibly high stats:

Mus is a Baron with 45 physical attack, 8 attack speed, Follow-Up, 28% Adept chance, and 30% Pavise chance. Two consecutive Silver Lance hits will deal significant damage to most units, leaving them vulnerable to other Deadlords if not killing them outright. He has 20 resistance, meaning that he will usually take multiple rounds to kill reliably, as Pavise prevents a truly reliable one-round kill. However, he lacks a means of countering at range.

Bovis is a Forrest with 45 physical attack, 19 attack speed, Follow-Up, 25% crit chance, and upwards of 40% Accost chance. Any units without Nihil that Bovis doubles have a 56% chance of being crit at least once, but units with Nihil and high speed can fight him relatively safely.

Tigris is a Warrior with 46 physical attack, 7 attack speed, Follow-Up, and Wrath. He is only a significant threat to slow units like Iuchar or Iucharba. Wrath is dangerous, but Tigris is easily doubled, and Nihil negates any advantage Wrath provides; Seliph, Larcei, and Scáthach are particularly effective, as they all have high speed and weapon triangle advantage.

Lepus is a High Priest with no weapons, a Fortify that heals for 35 HP, Renewal, and Miracle. She is completely incapable of attacking, though her healing may be a nuisance; if most individual Deadlords can be defeated in one turn, she will be unable to heal much, and can be fought later when it is more convenient.

Draco is a Sniper with 39 physical attack, 22 attack speed, Follow-Up, 25% crit chance, 42% Adept chance, and upwards of 40% Accost. Draco will likely kill any flier he can attack without Nihil and can repeatedly attack, giving him additional chances to crit. However, he lacks 1-range, and can be safely engaged by strong combat units there.

Anguilla is a Mage Fighter with 45 magical attack, 18 attack speed, Follow-Up, 38% Adept chance, and Wrath. Anguilla can deal significant damage to many low-resistance units, and has a decent chance to kill any such units she doubles; she is particularly threatening if Wrath activates, but a unit with Nihil can negate that advantage. Seliph is particularly effective against Anguilla, as he has Nihil and Tyrfing boosts his resistance significantly.

Equus is a Bishop with 43 magical attack, 6 attack speed, Follow-Up, and 21% crit chance. Equus is easily doubled, but has a chance to kill or significantly weaken a unit he can attack with a crit; he notably has weapon triangle advantage against Forseti, and none of the Forseti users have Nihil to negate the crit chance. Seliph is effective against Equus for the same reasons he is against Anguilla.

Ovis is a Sage with 48 magical attack, 26 attack speed, Follow-Up, 46% Adept chance, and upwards of 40% Accost. Ovis hits resistance, doubles most units, and has a decent chance of getting extra attacks. Forseti can be reasonably effective against him, as it boosts its user's attack speed and limits Ovis's chance of activating Accost, though it is unlikely that they will be able to one-round Ovis. Seliph can fight Ovis fairly well with Tyrfing, though he cannot double him. He can also be disabled by a Silence/Sleep staff user with 26 or more magic.

Simia is a Swordmaster with 39 physical attack, 25 attack speed, Follow-Up, 45% Adept chance, 28% crit chance, and Renewal. Simia has a chance to crit and a high chance to get additional attacks, giving her additional opportunities to crit. While Seliph negates crits with Nihil, he can still take significant damage and may be killed following attacks from other Deadlords. Simia lacks a 2-range option and has fairly low resistance; the Forseti-user needs more than 10 speed to double her and at least 26 magic to one-round her.

Gallus is a Dark Bishop with a Hel tome, Follow-Up, -5 attack speed, and Renewal. He cannot kill anything, though he can set up for someone else to kill, such as Julius's Meteors. It may be beneficial to leave him alive to activate Miracle, but he can be defeated fairly easily.

Canis is a Light Priestess with Nosferatu, 25 magical attack, 8 attack speed, Follow-Up, and 20% crit chance. As the only unpromoted Deadlord, Canis has mediocre stats compared to her comrades, and can safely be allowed to attack Seliph, though she does have a chance to crit.

Porcus is a Thief Fighter with a Brave Sword, 32 physical attack, 24 attack speed, Follow-Up, 27% crit chance, and Steal, which will drain all of a unit's gold when hit. Gold is a relatively minor issue, as there are very few things left to do with it. Porcus is similar to Simia but slightly weaker; he similarly lacks a 2-range option and can be defeated fairly reliably with Forseti.

Julius

Julius is the last enemy fought in the game. He has Meteor to attack from his castle, and now has Nihil to prevent a unit from circumventing Loptous with critical hits or sword skills. Julius will consistently stay at high HP, enabling him to trigger Accost easily, potentially killing a unit with Meteor while fighting the Deadlords. However, Julius will not use Meteor if a unit is standing directly in front of Belhalla Castle (from the "Besiege" position), and he will always attack that unit with Loptous if he can. For this reason, if Seliph or Julia is at Belhalla gate, it becomes safe for other support units like healers or a Dancer.

Julia is the best candidate to fight Julius. At base level, Julia with Naga deals 6 damage to Julius and doubles him; with a 100% magic growth, she will cap her magic after 12 levels, and after promotion will deal 25 damage to Julius each attack, potentially one-rounding him if Adept activates twice, or once if given the Magic Ring. Seliph or any unit with high resistance may stand at Belhalla's gate to instigate Julius into using Loptous, and allow other units to move into position. Keeping Seliph and any units with Charm within 3 tiles of Julia increases her reliability, and Lene/Laylea may allow for Julia to kill Julius in one turn.

Defeating Julius without Naga

It is possible, though significantly more difficult, to kill Julius without Naga. Other than Seliph, few units if any will likely have the resistance to take multiple attacks from Julius; additionally, Julius heals 15 HP each turn from the castle, significantly reducing the usefulness of chip damage.

In order to outpace Julius's healing, he needs to sustain at least 16 HP of damage each turn. Seliph has the best resistance of any unit that can damage Julius; Seliph has at least a 70% chance, possibly higher depending on his inherited strength, to cap his strength by level 30, and will have 60 attack with a Power Ring and Tyrfing—he will deal 5 damage to Julius each attack, and must attack at least four times each turn to outpace Julius's healing. Julius has 15 attack speed, so a unit needs 16 AS to double him. Tyrfing boosts Seliph's speed by 10 but weighs him down by 7, and Seliph will always inherit at least 6 speed, so he needs at least 7 more speed to double Julius; by level 30, Seliph has a 92% chance of gaining 7 speed, or a 99.9% chance of gaining 2 speed allowing him to double with a Speed Ring. If both of Seliph's attack hit, he will deal 10 damage each round to Julius, and will need to attack twice each turn; if Seliph is at Belhalla's gate, Julius will focus on attacking him with Loptous, so a Dancer and units with Charm and staves can provide support safely. It is best for Seliph to fully repair Tyrfing before beginning to fight Julius, as stopping to repair it will extend the time required to kill him. If all of Seliph's attacks hit, it will take 16 turns for him to defeat Julius alone. To maximize his chances to hit, have every unit with Charm (Diarmuid, Nanna, Laylea) as well as Seliph's lover, if any, stay within a 3-tile radius to boost Seliph's hit and avoid. Furthermore, other units are capable of providing some damage. Febail can deal 8 damage with capped strength and Yewfelle—11 with a Power Ring—and can double with enough speed; Shannan can deal 3 damage with capped strength and Balmung and 6 with a Power Ring, and can double; Ares can deal 2 damage with capped strength and Mystletainn and 4 with a Power Ring, can Canto out of range, and can double with enough speed; however, aside from Ares, each of these units has relatively low resistance, and will rely mostly on having high max HP to survive against Julius, and even Ares will need to be healed frequently. These other units also have the risk of dying should Julius trigger Accost.

There is an alternate strategy to kill Julius incredibly quickly without Naga, but it is highly unreliable, and will likely require repeated reloading of a start-of-turn save. If Gallus is inflicted with berserk, he will use Hel to attack Julius, and will reduce him to 1 HP, as Loptous does not counteract Hel's special effect. The Berserk staff and the Berserk Sword are capable of inflicting berserk, though the the sword has a 5% chance per hit to affect Gallus, while the staff is guaranteed to do so if the user has enough magic; however, the Berserk staff is only available in an event involving Charlot, Coirpre's substitute, requiring that Silvia be dead or unmarried by the end of Chapter 5. In order to berserk Gallus he must not be dead, so the Deadlords must be entirely avoided or all but him be defeated. To berserk Gallus with the Berserk staff, the user must have at least 26 magic; with the Berserk Sword, the user must hit Gallus, and he will then have a 5% chance of being berserked—a unit that deals little damage but attacks multiple times will maximize the chances for Gallus to be berserked. It will likely be required to use the Rescue staff on the unit with the Berserk Sword to avoid them dying. Once Gallus is berserk, he will attack Julius, whom he has a 33% chance to hit; if he hits, Julius will be left at 1 HP, low enough that any unit can kill him if they hit. Julius has 93 avoid counting his authority bonus, so a unit will need at least 193 hit to have 100% accuracy, though less accuracy can still be reliable, especially if the attacker can attack multiple times. Rescue can be used to get a unit such as Shannan from outside Julius's range to Belhalla gate. To manipulate the random numbers used in these low-chance events, a unit that has not completed the arena can be left at a castle; making the exact same moves from a given save will cause the same events to occur, so sending a unit into the arena can change the RNG predictably, which can guarantee that Gallus is berserked or that he hits Julius.
