— Douglas to Roy

The Glorious Ascension (Japanese: 至高の光 Supreme light) is chapter 16x of Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade. In order to play this chapter, Douglas must have survived the previous chapter.

Which set of the next four chapters (and potentially sidquest) is played after this one depends on the combined experience of four units: if the sum of the experience gained by Shanna and Thea is greater than or equal to that of Sue and Sin, the Ilia route will be played; otherwise, the Sacae route will be played.

Beginning log

At the request of King Mordred, Roy headed for the Tower of the Saint on the outskirts of Aquileia. The Tower of the Saint was a place of worship for Saint Elimine, one of the Eight Heroes. In the tower lay various holy relics relating to her. However, the sacred tower was under the control of Bishop Windham, who had rebelled against the Elimine Church by Roartz's orders.
