I'm currently doing a playthrough of Blazing Sword, and I'm about to reach Pale Flower Of Darkness. Which of the two characters is a better choice? Harken or Karel? I'm playing on ENM (because it's my first playthrough in a while) , and I think I'm on Kenneth's version.
Taking into account everything, bases, availability, growths. In all the other modes but HHM I'd say Harken is the better unit between the two of them, because Raven isn't that good compared to other units, like the cavaliers, but his stat boosts on HHM really help him to become one off the most reliable non pre-promoted units of the game, one shoting most regular enemies in his joining chapter, and by the time harken joins it's not hard to have him promoted, even playing efficiently. Of course, after Harken joins he will have better stats for a while. Who would you consider the best unit between the two of them?
Okay, so I was wondering whether you guys prefer Kenneth's map or Jerme's map for Pale Flower of Darkness. I'm currently on my third playthrough (Eliwoods Hard Mode) and I'm almost done with the stage. Two of my three playthroughs I've gotten Jerme's map and I honestly prefer it. It may be a bit tougher than Kenneths, but you don't have to deal with all three kinds of long-distance magic constantly. Also, the Bolting is easier to get if you actually want/ use it. I suppose that is helped out quite a lot by the fact that I like Dorcas until he's level ten, and will use Raven through the end as compared to the magic users of whom I will only use Priscilla and Canas (though Canas doesn't count). I also think that it's a lot easier to get Harken in Jerme's map, and I always promote him just so I can steal his Brave Sword :D . Anyway, the other reason that I love Jerme's map is because you can take your time. There are tons of enemies, many of them promoted, but there's a spot where you can funnel them out, normally with Hector or Oswin due to their high defense stats. In fact, that's exactly what I do. I promote Hector and put him in that 2x1 area right near where you start and let all of the enemies come towards him with Canas, Florina, or Heath waiting behind him for some easier distance kills. The sheer number of enemies also makes it so that I can fill in gaps in my leveling, and get majority of my units (not Lyn because I dont have the second Heaven Seal) promoted. It is just a long stage, but fairly easy even in Hard Mode and it is earns my favor because there's no long range magic and there are tons of enemies for you to level up against.
