Which is a more important stat in Fire Emblem Gaiden Specifically? We all know that speed is universally the best stat in every FE game. But is it more or less important than defense in Gaiden? Personally, I'd say that defense is more important. In Gaiden, the amount of enemies you face at the middle and end of the game are quite strong, and many enemy units can attack almost anyone from multiple angles (Knights, Snipers, wizards, paladins etc can all gang up on you). Since the minimum damage dealt in gaiden is 1 instead of 0, you would think that defense doesn't matter much. But consider this: Would you rather take 2 points of damage from being doubled on enemy phase, or 6 damage from one attack? While getting doubled is never fun to look at, it's never really an issue in gaiden, assuming you promote and utilize your items. A majority of your units will have enough speed to double or not get doubled by generic Snipers, Knights, and even the Final Boss! As for being doubled by magic enemies that swarm you, there are few instances in Gaiden where Magic is an issue. You have the angel ring, dread fighters, the magic shield, and even the Dragon shield that all make proper defenses against magic that you can give to your knights and low res units. Of course, high defense and Speed is fantastic, but few units have that advantage. Celica can be fast, but Valbar takes all the abuse. And last I checked, an average Celica can't handle Geyse 1v1. What do you guys think?
