  1. If you care about the ranking system, I've found that on the Hard Modes you have to use pretty much everyone to get 5-star Experience, because the penalty to Experience for killing enemies of lower level than you is much more severe in Hard Mode than in Normal Mode. If not, then nevermind.
  2. Sort of like Lyn and Eliwood in FE7?
  3. At https://serenesforest.net/three-houses/monastery/fishing/ it says that they can't find any information about the Strange Fish Shadows (purple) In fact, Strange Fish Shadows are related to a fishing quest in chapter 14 Azure Moon. (Probably other routes too, but I only know for sure about Azure Moon.) You need to fish one up to complete the quest, and as far as I know you can only fish up one.
  4. That is incorrect. The modes only unlock after you complete ENM. Here's the full scoop on how the modes get unlocked. Initially, you must play LNM and then proceed to ENM. Completing ENM unlocks LHM, EHM, and HNM, and allows you to skip Lyn's tale. Completing HNM unlocks HHM. I think completing EHM might unlock HHM too, but I haven't tested that. So make sure that for that chapter 10 LHM save file, an HNM and/or EHM run is already in the books, or you won't be able to use the save file for HHM.
  5. Greil did use a training sword in the opening cinematic and the prologue chapter, and I noticed that Greil's attacks seemed rather clumsy in the latter. Perhaps Darth and/or Rezzy could comment on that too?
  6. Incorrect. The chapter ends as soon as Linus is defeated.
  7. I've found on Hard mode in general, once a unit starts falling behind, it's very hard for them to catch up. If you have been ignoring Lyn and Eliwood to the point where they are much lower level than the regular enemies, you probably might as well just bench them as much as you can. The only chapters where their deployment is forced (after Genesis) are Unfulfilled Heart (where they are in the middle of the map, and all of the enemy reinforcements come from the edges and corners), Sands of Time (where they start in an area that should remain safe, and if it isn't safe you'll likely lose anyway), and Light (see Unfulfilled Heart). Someone who is on HHM has most likely already beaten the game at least twice, and should therefore know about Pale Flower of Darkness. Nonetheless, this is good advice, to which I would add that I have found Harken to be much easier to get in Jerme's chapter than Kenneth's. You do need to have somebody from Eliwood's entourage (Lowen, Marcus, Isadora, or Eliwood himself) deployed in that chapter to talk to him though.
  8. I've always promoted Lyn, and never regretted it.
  9. Holding onto a chapter 10 save from before you completed the game won't make any difference: Chapter 11 will automatically be ENM if you continue from that saved game, whether you have completed ENM once already or not. However, you do not necessarily have to do Lyn's tale again. Every subsequent time you start a new game after finishing the game at least once, you will have the option to start from the prologue with Lyn or from Chapter 11 with Eliwood or Hector. In short: To take advantage of the extra modes unlocked after completing the game, you have to start from scratch, but you don't have to do Lyn's tale again.
  10. Of course, this changes everything about the final scene of chapter 12, which I have also "edited" thus: Hector: “Hmm…That is troubling. Actually, a captain of the guard was watching the fight when we arrived. He was a knight of Santaruz, and yet he just stood there and let a lord be attacked. I think he was planning on seeing you die.” (If tactician is present) Hector: “So, Mark. What do you think? … Indeed. Lord Helman is probably in danger too. Let's go! To Santaruz!” Eliwood: “Hector, who is this?” Hector: “This is Mark. My brother insisted that I would need tactical advice, and…” Eliwood: “Ah, Mark! You helped Lyndis during Caelin's succession war last year, did you not? I am pleased to hear that you have found work in Lord Uther's court; I have no doubt that you will guide Hector and me well.” Hector: “Mark is the youngest of my brother's military advisors, but… Lord Uther and his best agents have vouched for (him/her), and (he/she) has guided me well so far. I had some difficulty even leaving Castle Ostia, and I may not have succeeded if it weren't for (him/her).” Eliwood: “It sounds like your tactical prowess is as keen as I remember from last year. It is good to see you again, Mark.” (If Dorcas is alive) Dorcas: “Good to see you again, Mark. Natalie and I have moved to Pherae since you last saw us, and Eliwood has hired me to accompany him in search of his father. Lead us well!”
  11. One quirk of Hector's Tale is that the player character is conspicuously absent from the early chapters until you meet up with Eliwood again. I wondered how it would change things to have the Tactician accompany Hector from the beginning. To that end, here is some dialogue that I guess you could call mini-fanfic. The Tactician in chapter 11H: (scene as officially written) Uther: “Peace, Oswin. Let him go. There’s no reasoning with him when he gets like this.” Oswin: “…” (Hector leaves) (If the Tactician is present) Uther: “Mark! Attend me!” Oswin: “...” Uther: “Mark, despite your youth, Matthew has spoken highly of your tactical prowess, which I believe that Hector will need now more than I will. Your orders are to ensure that he comes to no harm on his journey to Pherae. Meet Matthew at the rear gate for further instructions, and be wary; I suspect that some villainy is afoot even here. Uther: One more thing, Mark... I entrust you with the future of Ostia itself. If anything happens to my brother, I will personally see to it that the same happens to you.” (Another room in Castle Ostia) Hector: “Matthew! Matthew! Blast it! Where could he be?” (scene continues as written until the chapter begins) (Start of battle) If the Tactician is present: Matthew: “Mark, excellent timing! Milord Uther told me that you would be joining Hector and myself on this journey. We need to fight our way through those blackguards to the gate so that we can rendezvous with Lord Oswin and Lady Serra outside.” Hector: “Mark? What is the youngest of my brother's advisors doing here?” Matthew: “I requested his tactical assistance, which milord Uther granted. Guide us well, Mark.”
  12. My operative words were "who could have used it." Pelleas couldn't even swing a bronze sword, let alone Gurgurant. And for that matter, neither could Soren.
  13. Gurgurant could just be an heirloom of Daein's royal family. It's not like Ashnard left any heirs who could have used it...
