The turd knight who joins you for the mission and rushes forward triggering all enemies at once. On maddening the best (and only viable I've found) solution is to set up a chokepoint where the chest is and letting the turd knight march on and suicide himself. It's silly.

he doesn't do this though? he aggroes onto the guys attacking from behind and (on maddening) suicides on them in a few turns while doing a good job keeping them occupied.

E: unless i guess you specifically cut those guys off from approaching but why would you do that

what's so super bad about this map

everyone seems to hate it and like sure, i don't particularly *like* it either what with its tons of empty space, but i've played worse

It's a long, completely linear map that constantly tries to interrupt your pace. You've got:
1) Two chests as side objectives, one of them in a dead end
2) Reinforcements from behind asking you to stop where you are and address them first or risk being pincered
3) Reinforcements from the front also asking you to stop where you are and send out baits who can survive the thieves who can one-round a majority of your other units (attacking on the same turn they appear, by the way)
4) Archers Poison Striking you from the sides, limiting your safe squares in an already tight corridor
5) When you think the map is over the boss changes into another form (with no save point in-between)

It kinda overstays its welcome really. Reunion at Dawn is worse (imo and for an entirely different reason) so I won't quite call it the worst map of 3H, but it's pretty down there

There's a definite dead zone in that map where reinforcements basically stop and you've cleaned up about everything around you so you're just drudging the rest of your army through an empty hall way to actuall deal with the boss & the cronies you couldn't quite finish before.

If it had half as many enemies it'd be downright gaiden-esque!

Thinking about how the snow map in Revelation would actually be fun if you just... removed the snow. Like thereís an actual decently designed map with chokepoints and poo poo thatís never used anywhere else in the game underneath the snow and itís completely baffling

which is why everyone should come read my quarantine project, an fe4 LP, where you will be able to vote on who aideen marries in a few days (my schedule permitting)

My first thought was that this seemed a bit early, considering she's not even recruited yet in the LP atm, but then i remembered how many random talk events there are early on for Aideen specifically, and yeah, you do kind of need to know who you're aiming for with her pretty much from the word go.

That's because at the time there were several promoted classes that aren't inserted yet so we can't have you crashing the game when it tries to do the promotion animation.

I literally just finished the Post-Game dungeon of Echoes last night after two previous attempts ended up in failure by boredom. I think that, if you're aiming to fight everyone/collect everything, breaking it down by playing either one third each time you pick up your 3DS or something like that, because honestly, aside from Alm, Celica and Delthea being OP as gently caress and the rest of the scouting party being underleveled, Baby Grima was a total chump.

Bord is brutally cunning, while Cord is cunningly brutal. Night and day, basically.

I just kept throwing him into clumps of axe footsoldiers. The chapter he starts in gives you a church to dodge tank him up to like level 8 right from the word go.

And he's not broken in combat, he's pretty poo poo and needs to be handed fancy toys to clear the arena(Which granted he does buy and sell at cost, so it's not quite as bad as it feels)

He's broken in that everyone gets the elite ring and stuff like the brave lance in the arena from him tossing money everywhere and then smacking some dudes to get it all back and toss it to someone else.

I'm trying to decide if someone going for efficiency would rank him higher or lower than my casual run, because at this point I completely out level all opposition.

Nailah's my favorite Tellius character and easily on the top 10 for my favorite series characters so I don't know how I feel about her being in a wedding dress because her default attire was just... the loving coolest.

Yeah the accessory game on beast & dragon units is still severely lacking. You'll occasionally get a dragon that gets to keep their innate-accessory but they're pretty rare.

I don't think they ever mention how Nailah and Rafiel's kids would end up. IIRC with Naesala and Leanne they say the boy was a raven and the girl was a heron, so maybe Rafiel and Nailah would wind up the same way.
