  1. The game isn't getting any more DLC so unless E3 catches everyone by surprise, the glitch's here to stay.
  2. At the very least, the Fire Emblem Wiki lists which battalions can be purchased on the Battalion Guild depending on the route. Also, every battalion the game has is listed on the site as well and all should have their respective locations/availability mentioned.
  3. Reportedly there's some unused text in the game -such as Shigure's sibling supports with Male Kana, and the "don't give up!" lines for the Birthright/Conquest final chapters from unavailable characters of said routes- which has never really been corroborated anywhere, so I've tried looking for a text dump of the game that might shed some light on these. Long story short, I have been unable to find such data online and the mega/dropbox links which once hosted some text dumps appear to have died a long time ago. Still, if anyone hsppens to know where else I could find the evidence I seek I would very much appreciate it.
  4. The amount of stuff the game can account for is insane honestly, and this is without getting into monastery dialogue. Some observations: These 2 examples go unused in the game proper actually! Edelgard/Ferdinand B can only be seen in Part 2 while Claude/Lorenz C- is Part 1 only. The only instances I think Lorenz would call Holst "one of the commanders of the Alliance" is if neither Judith nor Claude are around, which can only happen after the Gronder 2 battle in Silver Snow (Chapter 17 onwards) and after conquering Derdriu in Edelgard's story (Chapter 15 onwards). Since Hilda can't be recruited in Crimson Flower, only in the former scenario Lorenz should use this line (assuming I'm right of course).
  5. What skills in particular you can't get with renown?
  6. Um...does anyone know if there's a way to see Saizo in the Private Cuarters without his mask? Just noticed his 2D model was actually modeled with a mouth and there even are graphics meant for it when he talks, and I dunno if it's possible to see that or not...
  7. Doesn't Dedue automatically get +4 more levels when he returns in Azure Moon as of the last update? In my last run I swear he jumped from Lv25 to 29 for Chapter 16.
  8. I believe he returns with all of those but his battalion, which is transferred to the convoy instead if you want someone else to use it while he's gone.
  9. I dare say having a route deviate from the template Silver Snow provided did take a toll of sorts for the devs. I've noticed both Azure Moon and Crimson Flower make heavy use of CGs from the moment the story goes to do it's own thing (Chapter 17 onwards for AM, 11 for CF).
  10. If the internal order of the monastery exploration script is any indication, Crimson Flower's short lenght was one of the very first things they decided about that route, and around the time the possibility of Silver Snow getting one more chapter was still open to boot. Everything else like the internal mission, story event and even voiceclip order does indeed point out it was saved for last, which from a practical and developer standpoint it makes sense to do, in particular if the other 2 routes follow a similar story beat to your template and thus can reuse more stuff.
  11. Yep. You even get a small different scene which replaces the one with the CG where Edelgard executes Dimitri.
  12. How late are we talking about? There's a ton of evidence pointing out the game was already comitted to have the 4 routes by the time the E3 2018 trailer was shown. Funny you say that: there's unused text suggesting Byleth was considered to speak out loud their chosen option when sparing/killing someone. This scrapped feature appears to be most complete in Claude's case for CF, while in Lysithea, Ashe and Lorenz's cases, Byleth simply repeat the option picked like a robot.
  13. To answer your questions: * Datamine suggests CF being short was fully intentional and planned way in advance, but also that it was indeed the last route the devs worked on. Regardless of what it's lenght and short chapter count may indicate, there is very little scrapped content for it compared to the other routes and the fact it follows it's own difficulty curve and the shops unlock their lategame stuff earlier also supports this. * The interviews about the game's development heavily imply the whole intention of advertising Edelgard and co. was to lure the player into doing Silver Snow, in particular as it was written by the director and the clues that hinted how to get into CF instead weren't telegraphed initially. * I personally don't think the Slitherers were even meant to be fought in Edelgard's story. Even though the plot suggest they're doing stuff in the background, they're showed more as a bunch of dangerous-yet-useful tools than actual final enemy material.
  14. Hard to say. Map-wise, evidence suggests SS and VW were more or less combined during development as Azure Moon started getting its own maps, and given how both "The Curse" and "Courage and Tragedy" are set up internally (as in, the first one mashes up 2 clips together while the other uses only one of the clips but gives it a different audio track) + how the routes' ending cutscenes are internally at the very end of the list, it's possible there was some uncertainty as to which of the two routes (SS and VW) would get Nemesis and the Berserk Rhea respectively before they made up their minds. As for strict evidence pointing out Nemesis was planned to be on Silver Snow, I at the very least could not find anything of the sort. And yeah, SS getting the short end of the stick despite coming first is weird to think about, but also makes sense when one considers it was the first draft that served as the template for the others, never ended up getting polished (and the plans to do so were scrapped down the line), and had one unique feature cut from it as well.
  15. Thanks! Though most of the credit should go to Tactician_Iris as her scanned image made this possible to begin with. On a related note, someone on reddit did a far better translation of both songs's lyrics which you all might want to check out.
