Strategy

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

Give Clair the Ridersbane for this battle. Even though there are no enemy cavalry to kill, it's still your strongest weapon and you want her to assassinate the Witch and Cantor behind enemy lines. Knight Lukas makes an excellent point man with a good shield and Physic support, especially the Dracoshield. The Villager Mercenary, Villager Archer, and Mage Kliff can support him from behind. Mathilda is in no real danger, and even if she is injured a simple Physic is all it takes to cure her.

After the battle, you get Alm's first personal weapon, the Royal Sword. Make sure to have him swing it around a couple of times in the next few maps; Subdue is extremely useful at the sluice gate.
