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

Back in the Southern Outpost, you should have picked up the Lightning Sword. This bad boy can two-shot any enemy on the map other than the boss. Since Mercenary bases are sufficient to double everything here even weighed down with the Lightning Sword, it will be a very powerful tool going forward. Deploy your Mercenary to Alm's right.

The actual battle is fairly straightforward. Send Alm and your Mercenary crashing into the front lines. Make sure to feed the boss kill to Silque as usual - it's also a good idea to try and set up a kill or two on enemy phase if possible. On turn 3, move your Mercenary into the range of the incoming Cavaliers to kill them on enemy phase and rout the other enemies. If Silque is level 6, you're in really good shape.
