Waterside Renvall

The only entrance is the bridge to the main gate, and it’s well guarded. Castle Renvall is a natural stronghold, easy to defend and difficult to assault. We must plan our attack carefully.
— Seth

Waterside Renvall (Japanese: 水城レンバール Moat-Castle Renvall) is the seventh chapter of Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones. Eirika leads an assualt on Renvall, fighting Grado head-on in hopes of rescuing her brother Ephraim, who is rumored to be held prisoner there.


Main article: Waterside Renvall/Script

The start of the chapter is fairly uneventful, Seth explains the advantages the soldiers protecting Renvall have, and Eirika's recruited companions all state their renewed determination.

After Eirika's seizing of the castle's gate, she and Seth journey deeper into the fortress and find Orson by himself. Eirika expresses her concern for Orson's well-being, however, the absence of Ephraim makes Seth immediately suspicious of Orson. Regardless of this, for now, Eirika and Seth allow Orson to guide them to the prisoner cells to free Ephraim.

Beginning log

"Rumors say that Ephraim has been defeated and taken prisoner. Now Eirika must find a way to rescue her brother from beneath enemy eyes. Eirika's company rushes toward Castle Renvall, where Ephraim is being held. Surrounded by lakes, Renvall is a natural fortress, all but unassailable. A lone bridge, held by the enemy, is its only entrance. Eirika has only one choice. Eirika decides to confront Grado's soldiers head on..."

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

This chapter is very straight forward, just move towards the castle and kill everything in your way. If you really want the Energy Ring, bring Colm along so that he can steal it. The ballista may be irritating, especially if you are using Vanessa, but you can easily send another unit north to take care of it.

The boss is nothing special. First attack from afar with magic or bows then finish him off with heavy hitters like Eirika's rapier. Kill the boss, then seize the throne.
