Starting Fire Emblem 1 in NES and SNES Era Posted October 7, 2018 · Report reply 1) I believe you just need a point more of speed, although I could be wrong. 2) Not to my knowledge, which is a pain, but since I have no dignity or shame I just use an NES emulator with a rewind button until I get the optimal performance. 3) While I love doing that, there is really not much point. However, in a few chapters you are going to recruit a thief and another cleric. On that chapter, there is a fort on the far left side of the map. Leave one enemy alive in said area, namely the brigand, and put your staff user there. After a lot of waiting and grinding, and I do mean a lot, you can easily max out your staff users. My Wrys got to 17 speed, which is hilarious since caps are 20. As I said before, next to no point in doing this, staff users aren't your major fighters and I've been told giving your first promotion item to them is a terrible choice (didn't stop me, but regardless). The way that units go is the later in the game you get them, you can expect them to be worse. A prime example is cavaliers. Cain and Abel are definitively the best cavaliers, with the only other good one coming to mind (baring Jagen) is Hardin. Only use Barst, supposedly Bord or Cord is good (I forget which one), but both have been utter trash whenever I use them. Navarre is basically worse Ogma from my experience (Still used both of them since I like both of them). I'll stop with unit hints there. Use whoever you want, this game isn't that hard in my experience. Yeah, I had the same thing happen to me. Before SoV's release. I tried out the original Gaiden, but quit pretty fast since it seemed so clunky and I didn't really like it (Also Gray died and I hadn't actually savestated so I lost 4 hours of progress and I wasn't about to redo that slog). However, after playing Geneology and Thracia, it's a little easier to swallow. Never actually did try the original Gaiden again, but I did try a PC remake of it, which I did finish, and that one was arguably more clunky than the original.
