FE6 HM: Crappy Units Bonanza!

  

52 members have voted

  1. 1. Should I take Karel to final?

    • Yeah, look how low tier he is!
      23
    • No, use the guys you've struggled with for the whole game
      29


Recommended Posts

I've always wanted to do one of these, and since I've both never played the new translation patch yet and never played through hard mode yet, I might as well get all three things done at once. To make things more exciting, I'm only using units who're categorized as Low or Utter Shit tier in the HM Teir list (http://serenesforest.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=18979).

Some rules I've set for myself:

1) Roy counts as a crappy unit

2) Marcus is free for the first few chapters since I'd get massacred without him

3) Unpromoted healers are also okay

4) I can take anyone from Low tier to endgame, but Sophia and Wendy have to be there

5) Forced units get villages and shops, but can’t initiate an attack or tank for real units

6) I can use a thief, but once I have Cath it has to be her

7) I can use save states, but I’ll try and keep them fairly minimal

8) People voted that I can use Lalum, so she's free too

Anyway, with that, here it goes!

[spoiler=Chapter One]

6UWHWDr.png

And so it begins.

QnIWi4T.png

Obligatory expository banter

CJMdhUD.png

Obligatory-er title card

tISv8Ph.png

I will never get over how beautiful this man is

vFaPyeD.png

Does anyone in the castle actually end up dying? This kinda gets glossed over.

8gIdkpD.png

So… did Hector and Eliwood just kind of swap kids? I don’t feel like Lilina being here actually adds to the scene in any meaningful way other than to rub in your face that she exists and you can’t have her yet.

0aKLHoa.png

The crew.

iAw5VuJ.png

Lance won’t be needing these.

9fXCOGW.png

Yoink

UxaMqFc.png

Perfect defensive formation. Nothing can possibly go wrong.

(I apparently forgot to sreencap the first enemy turn because I’m an idiot, but Roy got attacked and the rest of the red guys moved in for the lump in the back, so I moved Marcus up to block them)

8RazIYd.png

Marcus is so much cooler purple than orange.

bG7GLkW.png

Wolt finishes off the Warrior from above, netting me my first kill.

7syqbcQ.png

Bors miraculously helps chip

QCphIQl.png

FLAWLESS TACTICS

iv1h2ga.png

Roy’s first kill. He’s been pretty boss at dodging so far.

GBBtyPk.png

Wolt, on the other hand…

BPlzWUq.png

Bors would’ve gotten doubled, so I just sat him there to protect Wolt from more axes to the head.

CqqG0Xb.png

Ditto for Marcus, except he’s mostly just not attacking because I don’t want him hogging the exp.

8bmrGan.png

Tanking like a purple champ

Z6K3dvX.png

Meanwhile, Wolt tries his hardest to be helpful

xsE63ni.png4MCBFRQ.png

I figured I could risk it since Bors needs exp and I’ve got Marcus and Roy there as backup, but he comes through for me again.

(Also I might have completely forgotten about that village until just now)

1C3BOP2.pngqmkBZnc.png

My tactical skills remain unparalleled

mqnjfZY.png

Much better.

g0gWaNp.png

Bors is using up all the luck in this whole run right at the start, just you wait.

RfBvkxg.png

Wolt chugs a vulnerary in preparation for an archer-off

7Mcm9lh.png

Meanwhile dodge master Roy takes on that brigand.

A050yzi.png

Wolt is possibly a little outclassed.

LN8YtrI.pngZmWMM73.png

Roy takes down the brigand and gets the first level of the run! And… it’s the shittiest 4 stat level possible. At least Res will be kind of nice eventually.

J5DxuxD.png

Maniacal laughter

4aH3nuV.png

This was supposed to be the killing blow but apparently if you screencap at the wrong time you just get the flash and can’t see anything.

GTOIZ6U.png

Bors, showing Roy how it’s done.

TmMTy6s.pngBpAuxwx.pngBTMox5E.pngYzsdoSF.png

I lured one fighter out by himself and had Roy dodge tank him as long as he could.

SFGKZDo.png

youtried.png

5uoFp7z.png

Risked it, everything paid off.

e2KEhsn.png

Time to vulnerary up and go for the next one.

uB8rajh.pngXP62yze.pngd88oFnx.png

The dodge master at work.

KCJCjEd.png

Roy plz you’re my only sword user until Juno/Dyan

9pJZdZN.pngZTPA1b2.png

Last one before the guys by the castle

zqZYmYr.png

So close

pC8sJwR.png

…Or not

Pf33GVY.png

Honourably sacrificing the kill to his lord

JPfjCQc.png

Dodge master Roy finally gets hit.

A4cHwvL.pngC5EwbZL.png

That’s more like it.

wTtzPjM.png

When you get this close, the remaining grunts start charging at you.

8pKakNc.pngpoLzESx.png0zdOvio.png

Combat montage

cr2NP2F.pngHQV4xxA.png

Next fighter

hFzEjW6.png

Roy plz T_____T

mUE26bw.png

Just the archer and the boss left, now.

c1UGwpr.pngynErZ0X.pngVH08VnT.png

The archer couldn’t hurt Bors, so I had them dance for a while.

6v5cxfn.png

He’s got a point; if they’d just gone around the little ledge, I’d have been SOL.

jFQUpoj.png

This fight is pretty much just chipping forever.

kzA2dBu.png4gjmfP5.png

Roy heals up so he can help.

51IBqIE.png

everyborsattack.png

uR5Q94s.png

Dodge master Roy made it like, three rounds.

TEcLTPa.pngotsODHk.png16zOERe.png

I had to resort to Marcus-ing him since waiting for Bors to hit the boss like 5 times without Wolt missing would have taken forever, but I didn’t want Marcus to get the kill, so I had him wait.

YSyFut0.pngYNBxBXU.png

Chip levels. Everyone’s putting Roy to shame.

6BkV1tn.png

Ffffff

Kp3Bzfq.png

If Roy’d missed and been killed, I’d have raged.

Tm2jvbe.png

That is not how I think I will ever be able to describe this army.

us4tugv.png

Tears

xs4gCJC.png

Roy’s finally home

G3EF3HV.png

I don’t care how sick the story says Eliwood is, if he managed to hold off any of these guys he is definitely still fit enough to be leading this army, especially over base Str Roy of all people.

XGzjjoG.png

So, this means I’m gonna get reinforcements from like, Santaruz and Kathelet and all those other places, right? Right?

3j0RihN.pngpuEswvM.png

“Without Marquess Manly-Beard there, the people will be distressed, but if this tiny girl with no experience takes over everything will be fine!”

1u6JG7V.png

He is talking about Merlinus.

VTjrV4C.png

At least someone does.

And that’s it! Hope you enjoyed reading, and I’ll try to update fairly frequently, though y’all know how these things work.

For the love that all that is holy, allow the lower mids and Ellen as well, or you won't finish this run.

Well, I'll have unpromoted healers, and I can use all but three of the divine weapons (two, if I were to get Dyan, but Sacae looks like a very bad idea for this team), so I'm gonna stick it out as long as I can. If things get too hairy I can make some exceptions later, but I'd like to see how doable this is firsthand.

Chapter 2! I was gonna wait until tomorrow to post this, but I just finished it and it kinda feels like a waste to just hold on to it.

Anyway, this one was a lot easier than chapter 1, imo. It didn’t really require any more strategy than throwing my units at the enemies and getting half-decent rng.

[spoiler=Chapter Two]

J0mGbkd.png

That’s what the chapter’s called

V9hvE6x.png

Pre battle plot

qv0vV0I.png

Merlinus’ only role in the story is to tell Roy not to do things and then to have Roy completely ignore him.

NiRTddm.png

If he was learning tactics from Hector, it’s probably just “Run at them with your weapons and then you win”

FVQ7AtE.png

What did I just tell you

HimwqV8.pngZsFR3Yr.png

This is my first double of the run. Gotta love soldiers.

lrdai0O.png

End of turn one. The lump formation is by far the most effective.

CqcdgP6.pngfyISWE2.png

Attacks happen

60lr6XB.png

Hooray! Wade and his gang of people I’m not gonna use.

qf1r22o.pngw9D22sO.png9H3KYjm.pngqOPxMwO.png

Some stuff with Roy’s gang to take care of first, though

dGO7qup.png

First off, yoink!

jgpQuic.png

Time to get axin’

BMqCeg7.png

Shanna who is not named Thany grabs Deke and hangs out in the mountains for the remainder of the chapter. Wade boldly holds the fort all by himself.

D08b1ZW.png

Meanwhile…

bDRUW31.png

Flawless strategy.

tCGu2Oa.png

Shit. Let’s try that again.

0URYh69.png

One reset later…

r41pATX.pngNUACNoP.pngNfs0GBj.pngv8jijTM.png

The Roy crew takes out the fighters on the left side of the map

OM21Y1H.png

See? All gone. Having a healer makes things a lot less complicated.

xYHFXKS.pnggLrdI4j.pngQ0X8eUT.pngldIxSap.png

Operation Juggernaut Wade enters phase two.

5QdlnKo.png

Healing up for round three.

UQs9mwX.png

Bro time

w94NkZm.png8lUiKrq.pngWLVuhMc.png

So heartwarming

rprNS9O.pngQWp2yy3.png

He’s been taking pointers from Roy

tpD2zGg.png

Can you believe this is the first time someone leveled up this chapter?

QW0dBnC.png

The rest of the army has finally made it to the enemies

5tmlNkb.png

You know you’re a shit enemy when…

LqLYiDw.png

Yeah, I had that coming.

zgyNECV.png

You were doing so well T__T

sWEb0RI.png

Allen has fulfilled his purpose in this map

wKjFM40.png

Roy tries to stay relevant

EO3BETa.png

At… at least there’s speed?

VOccaGT.pngxWG13nI.png0EReiWe.pnguT1XYXb.png

Wade is still king of the fort

WTX5UVH.pngGzmnlHk.png

Enough sitting around, it’s axemurder time.

L8yMRu1.png

These soldiers are just here to make me feel complacent, aren’t they?

wr2rKTj.png

No Str, no Spd, no good.

QHNCIFZ.png

Baiting them out

37je4MA.pngyFnvmNB.png

Dodge master Roy does the only thing he can kind of do.

81K3rYW.png

Bors is a master bater /canned laughter

Pqi1bbR.pngtvA3L0Q.png

I didn’t check and was not expecting the blade. I figured Bors’d just get tinked like with the archers.

lmtpY1n.pnggv3sw0B.pngQXhe2J1.png

why

GxGN2RV.png

Wolt for best tank

TBATx4x.png

And he’s gone. I tried to bait the next fighter and then the archer, but neither move until you’re awkwardly close.

vvYRytO.pngeJAdkVT.pngUm7LbH1.png

Therefore blitz the fighter

U6x6W1I.pngjJ8radk.pngNeTCyTg.png

This archer was a pain, though

6YUTrqA.png

Boss time

1ErN2Xi.png

You can go home now, Bors

3GedAY1.png

fe6axehitrates.png

TcK0wFG.pngdJ0e1Sw.pngngHl2jm.pngFdQ4jfG.pngjX4u1uy.pngUHfYrwT.png

It took me 6 shots to finally hit him.

ubxF8K6.png

I was not going through that again, so I hit him with Roy’s Armorslayer. The Rapier would have done 2 damage due to the fact that my Roy is anemic.

(Also I totally forgot that I hadn’t healed Roy before this attack)

uVYVoW9.png

40% Str growth my ass.

aopju0S.png

Time to save a princess.

TBgGVfh.png

Gasp!

Tvj1BTd.png

…But that’s exactly what you did?

98OgBB2.pngWFbgF6C.png

Yeah, spoilers: that’s not gonna happen.

Here’s chapter three. This one went a lot less smoothly than I’d have liked it to, but I made it through with a lot less hassle than I could have by taking it insanely slow.

[spoiler=chapter Three]

bFET9lK.png

…but then they all died war’s over.

NQJGuQX.png

New translation differences

yNtCdn0.png

Sudden Hector appearance

Co9xMcP.png

Harsh

yiI2Pt2.png

I like how Chad just kind of shows up offscreen and then is just kinda there

dQKwr8Z.png

Chapter, start!

de54eyA.png

The plan: Marcus gets Lugh, Wade gets the dudes by the house, the rest take care of the castle entrance.

x2mbeA1.png

Oh wait this is hard mode

STIUBeC.png

This guy sketches me out just a little too much. I think it’s the squinting.

qLTx4vQ.png

Then he just, takes the children away and is never seen from again.

Lm5wcik.png08yEdll.png

New plan: move Wade back to the cluster by the gate and pray for some dodges. Marcus is still going after Lugh.

nVx0N2R.png

Dodges happen for the most part thanks to the magic of forests, then I finally make some headway

ny3xHDj.png

Well, it’s not the worst level I’ve seen this run

VN4O3iZ.png

I probably should have given Marcus an axe. He’s getting less invincible very quickly.

960gxhe.png

I am really glad I have an axe user for all these lances.

uRj4qpQ.png

notcloseatall.png

nIDccdl.png

Roy’s helping.

a2Un2vl.png

Wolt is not helping. :S

QXfKA14.png

Final boss shoutout

jJqFmH9.png

If you think about it, Erik is the reason that this chapter is winnable

cicY9Px.png

‘Evisceration’ is a pretty fun word

jnS7naI.png

This was the only dodge that I had to rig in this chapter. I’m trying to keep it to a minimum if possible.

AYqzhip.png

This was my flawless defensive formation, by the way

9FVegmE.png

Axe to the head

5SDSUuE.png

Wolt is actually pretty decent

ZOMAG9I.png

notrisky.png

CjWQmsB.png

This game is conspiring against me

s1anUR2.png8r3E0ZV.png

I’m finally inside the castle

bwHnecZ.png

Also Marcus finally made it to Lugh. He had to blow a few Silver Lance uses on the soldiers, though.

b1XZAYq.png

I sent Bors in to take care of the ponies, and he spends something like the next fifteen turns fighting them off.

DLmmBtA.png8OKKWdv.png

I let the first group go around and fed them to these two

hMwUJ09.pngRCN1RB3.png

Whyyyyyy

NyZGjb0.png

My next 22 screenshots are just Bors versus cavs so I’ll just give you this miserable one and save you the trouble.

xLbo2BN.pngeDell5Q.png

I sent the crew in to finish off the last round.

cPtQTaA.png

Lyn confirmed for Roy’s mother

9vCa9lS.png

You would not believe how relieved I was to be done with the ponymen.

foqOm9l.png

Whoever decided to give the hammer 45% hit was not my friend.

XJOq0yn.pngKR4cLUh.png

Have I mentioned the game hates me yet?

Ree3JtR.png

At least he’s got pretty good strength

WASQ7l4.pngbVls1Ei.pngVefwA53.png

Roy does his thing

b4P2HS7.png

Treasure time

eCSFHlE.png

Roy can’t even two-hit them with the armorslayer

SDRmJTW.png

:I

GgChHOY.pngzO31nIR.png

Several less than effective turns later…

dvHfza8.png

Roy tries to take the throne room my himself, with mixed results

fEzshG3.png

Elen has been leveling too, not that it matters much

EVbpldD.png

I really wish I got another sword user before the end of the game

UNGLhJS.png

Many dodges later

ulm0PGT.png

This is not the most effective strategy

nsES3VA.png

Neither is this

YqQgqAf.png

I thought I’d been using it pretty conservatively, but Heal heals for nothing when you’ve got 1 Mag.

9oita9q.png

This was my first critical of the run. Good job Roy.

2mPKEzJ.png

BAD JOB ROY

Fun fact: if my math isn’t wrong, Roy’s odds of having base strength at level 9 are around 1.7%.

hTcGWIU.pngFapiPOX.png

Last minute trading since I don’t remember which chapter you get battle preparations.

cysGsoI.png

Guh just get me out of here

1MZjWHr.png

Merlinus, being useful

5nTzx8l.png

Hector you already beat a dragon that was like 4x stronger than the Manaketes these guys have got

grVk4TV.png

Why is everyone just constantly foisting their leadership duties onto some kid?

GvOqDDE.png

A Wyrmslayer? ‘Cause Durandal isn’t worth shit until Roy promotes in 100 years and can get S swords.

Are you planning on arena abusing? Actually, scratch that, the first arena is chapter 7, and I don't really see how a team of Roy Wolt Wade Dorothy is going to even manage to safely clear out 7 on HM without farming all the reinforcements in 5 and 6! How long is Marcus legal for?

Marcus is legal until I can make it without him. I'm definitely using him until 8x because there's no way I'm beating Henning without him, but i'm going to try and drop him after that if possible.

Also, I'm not going to arena abuse. I might throw someone in there for a round or two if they're around one and not doing anything, but I won't draw out a chapter to grind anyone.

Time for another chapter of “How Long Can Roy Go Without Gaining Strength?”

[spoiler=Chapter 4]

YyQgy1f.png

Yeah, there’s a war going on and all, but his real motivation is the girl

fOSwSxT.png

The new translation chapter names are a lot more poetic sounding than the old ones were

rYuiYiV.png

I’m pretty sure that Erik is older than Narcian

Mk9pTJy.png

Get rekt

BVyVapM.png

All these units and I can use like, 5 of them

Meanwhile all these horses are just going to charge at me

More yoinkage

Swapping one effective weapon for another

24Nzfmh.png

Unlike my other defensive formations, this one might actually result in success

6W2sQkq.pngx7CxHHi.png

Successful defending

Gs1HGg9.pngW3Jecbh.png

And then the counterattack

tu36BIO.png

Allen doing what he does best

XvOD1Nc.png

I am so glad the Halberd has 55 hit. It’s only 10 more than the hammer, but it feels way more reliable

FAaKh0U.png

Mopped up everyone but the Nomad

ROOTKfz.png

Rutger being eloquent as usual

nOFnEWZ.pngeNIcQq3.png

Marcus is getting a lot more use in this chapter since there’s too many enemies in too much open space to deal with things otherwise. Also these Nomads are a huge pain.

P4UDVBm.png

They hit Wade for 20 after the double. :\

YCcdSDk.png

Slowly making my way out of the starting zone

lctZtfI.png

9 damage with an effective weapon.

gSJEwE8.png

At least he can still dodge.

N7Rreu2.png

xk453jj.pngvk1xGpj.png

Meanwhile axes continue to be the worst

oJSpS1z.png

And by axes, I mean my luck with level ups

vNGaYfS.png

Roy has to heal up. Dodging’s a lot harder when the enemies all have lances

vJNs3tC.pngpTcnm9b.png

The bros work on taking down a single enemy while the rest of my army is actually useful

bKM1pZF.png

I am not allowed to complain about any level that includes a Spd proc.

QbK0u5t.png

Finally cleared out the right side of the map

IlM9OwY.png

Please no

gMge70Y.png

More units should join by talking to you instead of making you work your way to them. Especially if they don’t agro enemies.

SHm2vme.png

Roy’s just going to sit here and fight off pirates for the next hundred years while poking them for 7 damage.

Z9RSZkg.png

Fortunately, the hand axers can’t hit him but won’t go after the village if there’s a valid target in range

xUJHsuI.png

Suddenly, the Rutger gang. Welp.

qNTimGL.pngEUo0Dyq.png

Meanwhile, Roy lives up to all of my expectations.

sPOo3PF.png

I’m really not a fan of Clarine’s colour palette. I feel like it would have been so much nicer with a darker purple.

YOHG1VJ.png

I call this ‘Operation don’t get massacred by Rutger’

PFBdhjA.pngcwPxa45.pngbTVrj8s.png

Marcus is also pretty successful.

pVT5AdB.png50VExEf.png

Roy the overachiever

s5oQYrx.pngbGcLiM5.pngkxHfReV.png

Taking out Rutger’s crew. I’m really glad that hit rates didn’t dick me over this time.

BqbPrbe.png

Please put that Killing Edge down

9LgMKnr.png

If I saw a general with 5 strength, I wouldn’t bother learning his name either.

4GJq5zo.pngzvdtLnY.png

I let Rutger block the last member of his reinforcements since Clarine would have been wrecked and losing out on a Killing Edge use is a pretty big price anyway.

tM2dq7P.pngZxnMmAy.png

Roy’s gonna be occupied for a while.

p920Icq.png0IAqTaH.png

Bors makes his way toward the castle

OYD5q6D.png

I reloaded a state I had from a turn earlier and moved the reject crew as far away as I could

Have I mentioned I love the Halberd?

roNzrG4.png

Had to blow some more Silver Lance uses, unfortunately

I’m not even disappointed any more; his repeated failures have just left me numb

These guys are still here

He was holding Chad and I was honestly not expecting to make it out of this one

If your awesome luck with level ups continues you may have to hold on to Marcus for a while. For clarification, can you list all of the units that you plan on using?

Lol, I bet Marcus is still your best unit by the time the Western Isles come round. If you make it through chapter 7. God, come to think of it, what about the bosses after that? I bet Wade will be doubled by Leygance in chapter 8, and he has like sub 20 displayed hitrate with the hammer anyway, so Marcus or Roy will have to use the armorslayer on him. Then there's Henning who has 14 AS and 22 atk or something ridiculous on top of 38/15 defences and 50+ avd, so you'll be stuck with Marcus trying to Killing Edge him once you get him to swap to his hand axe. Actually wait, he's got 16 AS with his Hand Axe, so Marcus is doubled without the speedwing! (lmao)

Nothing's more fun than coming into the topic and watching everyone theorycrafting my demise. :P

Anyway, here’s chapter 5. I’m gonna tell you up front: I had to rig a fair number of crits to make this chapter doable with just my ludicrously bad units. Regardless, I did manage somehow, so here it is!

[spoiler=Chapter Five]

ZiAZlkv.png

If only the other territories had 16 year-old kids to recruit, then maybe he could trust them.

fHfY19D.png

Title drop

QiOeBpp.png

My favourite character makes a comeback

YEPOy0Z.png

I really wish Roy’d taken Merlinus’ advice for once and just ditched them

hrdRT8u.pngBPfgy14.png

A friendly reminder that this is only chapter 5

73AOQ6b.png

Most of these guys actually make this chapter harder because I don’t want anyone to die and there are just too many of them to herd around anymore

8QhYuMe.pngVI2LwOR.png

Also I would really like the battle preparations screen, tyvm

6DRTDvp.png

Wade holds the fort (literally) since everyone else starts too far away to be any help this turn

mYhCV6t.pngpR0DdPZ.png

Also, Lot apparently got a bunch of support points last chapter while hiding in the corner with the other overachievers

QfrKGEu.pngu3JL2oQ.png

Starting things off on a good note

Roy gets the Killing Edge and the Steel Blade because there’s no way I’m taking on a legion of axemen with just his 5 Mt swords and 6 Strength

ba2naJc.png

This was supposed to be mid crit-swing, but I effed up, so you’ll have to imagine it

nNkwzYT.png

The whole army heads up. I tried splitting up and got to a point where I couldn’t possibly win even with save states, not to mention the fact that Marcus, Bors, and Wolt together couldn’t take down a Brigand even attacking all together.

f22HeYK.pnguZgKiU5.png

Wade really needs to take some notes from the dodgemaster

H4jZK3U.png

That’s what I’m telling you two. Please don’t leave me with these failures.

K6eIgh7.png

Helping

x7i0nxv.png

Roy is MVP this chapter, btdubs

4upfmqz.png

Bors is not.

rBLxO5G.png

Oh jeez that’s a lot of enemies

oEy4miH.pngZprAlRO.png

If you’re gonna crit, please do it on the first hit.

gwzGbIE.pngg9qguly.png

Marcus needs a real weapon if he’s gonna be any help.

JN0kyWp.png

Maybe if I feed Wolt enough kills, he won’t be dead weight forever

J3PpIRn.png

I’m so proud

ONo7L7D.png

I really wish anti-cavalry weapons worked on Nomads in this game. They’re crazy strong, so I’ve gotta take them out quickly

1eCeoG5.png

Despite how much of a failure he is, I have absolute faith in Roy’s ability to dodge, for some reason

2SbfsBO.pngX3ONu0r.png

:SSS

6NfVNvx.pngFqE8eXX.png

Anyway, as I was saying…

yFhESvs.png

And that’s the other bow pony down.

RKCMg54.png

At least Wade has the strength to help finish everything off

O2i1M9O.png

I’m sending Marcus off to take care of the Brigands who cross the mountains from the castle. Meanwhile, Bors and Wolt hide with the pubs

L2iWAKl.png

Marcus proves that he’s a member of this team

9KyyLth.pngP9pZYFD.png

The Killing Edge is getting low, so I bust out the behemoth

PBKfz1Z.png

They’re finally thinning out

Iyasfok.png

I’m really gonna miss this thing

saJaQPN.png

Bors will really appreciate this

kiO6LmR.png

I tried to bait, but that Merc doesn’ move

xJ1HQVc.pngRwU4U4m.png

Fortunately, he doesn’t even move when you start hitting him from 2 range

HKBePUC.png4VGoPYa.pngvHZz7sH.png

It shouldn’t take three people to take out a fighter

X1HZaWq.png

levelups.png

X77x0dD.png

Surprise enemies from the castle. They got impatient, apparently.

U9Pol7u.png

Meanwhile: Marcus

HTcdkcG.pngyHu5lWc.pngrXrM2nj.png

These Mercs were a pain

ZuzNHTM.png

This guy survived with like 3 HP because Roy is useless

nw68CEP.pngLQLQxkZ.pngxYMmeOc.png

I meant to have Wolt attack this guy but moved the curser too far and supported Roy instead. It all worked out, though, since they get +1 attack and decent bonus crit at B.

p5ZR3Wz.pngxkyLqLL.png

Blowing Killing Edge uses, no big.

mN9MCcR.png

This guy had way lower stats for some reason and almost tricked me into thinking that Wolt was magically good.

uE0Nnlt.pngni8OP1Y.png

Beautiful.

(Except that was his second last Killing Edge use)

DjRcB1m.png

Marcus finally takes out the second Brigand. His job is done for this chapter.

erp2Tkh.png

It kinda breaks the spirit of things but I was sick of reinforcements. I think they stopped next turn anyway, tbh

S9MqVWo.png

Just because it’s 4 stats doesn’t mean it’s impressive, Wolt

xuPo2R9.png

Unrigged iron sword crit courtesy of Wolt

1ceO0R7.pngQ1ugIgv.png

One day maybe one of my units will gain speed.

kVjdzmD.pngotMN39T.png

Not today. 40% is the lowest %.

i9TVcQx.pngYhx9LuM.png

Two luck crits in a row. I spent probably five minutes trying to think of how to take out these guys without blowing my Killing Edge and then the power of friendship did it for me.

Yejvtu3.png62Vbfk9.pngE8mM24L.png5tsNTBL.png

And that’s it for the grunts.

DxzSAQG.png

I had to whip out the Steel Blade again, since the Rapier was only 2 damage so it was useless even if it were to crit.

Pebqt0C.png

He hit me with the Killer Axe once, but I dodged the rest.

az5wTMx.png

roy.png

36kDLrm.png

Also he switched back to the Hand Axe for some reason? The only thing I can think of was to discourage Wolt’s 4 damage chip shots.

LjNzLZk.png

I wanted to feed the kill to Wolt, but Roy was the only one who could hit and iron+iron was only 6 damage

oVF0bzX.png

Just get me out of here

As for the units I'm using, my potential pool is:

Roy

Cath

Wolt

Ward

Dayan
Juno

Geese
Hugh
Douglas
Barth
Merlinus
Bors
Dorothy
Karel

Sophia

Wendy

And also Saul, Elen, and Clarine, but I can't promote them.

At this point, I'm pretty much banking on Geese and Hugh being not-screwed and carrying me through the later chapters. Maybe one of the Generals, too. At least I've got enough bows to take care of the Wyverns. :S

Alright, chapter 6, featuring 90% less cheese. This one was ridiculously easy after the past chapters. It kind of felt like they forgot to give the enemies their hardmode bonuses.

[spoiler=Chapter 6]

He is worse than Roy. What parallel dimension have I fallen into?

XN41U0L.pngAN4iGm0.png

I’m doubling things. Everything I know is a lie.

AyzmkdO.png

At the start of the map, I was pretty worried about those mages.

Feeding Dorothy some kills.

5kFAvTK.png

EVEN BORS IS DOUBLING

I’m scared.

XMn4h6f.pngo4dWi2S.png

At least some things never change

Or do they?

uspVZSB.pngsauuejz.png

*Manly tears*

aaeSb0G.pngZlAiUWs.png

Okay seriously, whoever gave these soldiers 3 speed on hard mode after the capped strength barbarian king last chapter needs to get their shit together.

Accidentally aggroed a mage. They’re the only real threat in this chapter.

C’mon Wade, we had something good going before

L1n99K8.png

Now that Chad’s got Cath’s lockpick, it’s time for the chests

Wade’s a big boy, he can handle it

JOTsCbw.png

Best day

4gnpwGT.pngLGLUSwV.pngtI22krg.png

I never remember about these guys, I always just get caught up on the cavs from the south

There we go, I knew you could do it

SPEED

SVvV9sh.png

Wolt’s the only one with >25 hit. FE6 Thrones are kind of stupid.

m2qXcK0.png

Not as exciting as Wade’s speed, but I’ll take it.

ycai0w7.png

Clarine gets an actually useful level

ArazCff.png

This was a crit, btdubs. The short bow’s a fun toy.

4JlyJ6m.png

This was apparently the kill shot I caught. I wanted Drothy to get it, but she had 22 hit with the steel bow and couldn’t KO him with the iron.

597TkTt.pngqYkG9fS.png51WFZ7O.png

Closing notes: the reinforcements from the south never spawned. I left Roy and Bors down there the whole time for nothing. I’m pretty sure I didn’t dream them up.

The southern reinforcements dont spawn unless your entire army goes past a certain line in the middle of the map. Leaving 1 person there prevents them from spawning.

Also, holy shit your Wade is channeling ZM's Wade.

Chapter 7! I was one image over when I went to post this, and chapters are only getting longer from here, so I'm gonna have to either cut down on screenshots or start double posting. :S

[spoiler=Chapter 7]

53AYZdf.png

He looks trustworthy; I can see why Hector would keep this guy around.

oj82648.png

The team. I OCD-ed my units around a bit.

YWT2nLt.png

What even is that thing in the background of the title card? I always see it as a cup, but that doesn’t really make that much sense.

TovHDZG.png

Elibe has the shittiest armies.

wp0oILE.png

Battle start. As usual, I split my army up because I’m grossly overconfident in my units’ ability to be not the worst.

6Hubiao.png

Plus, my other patented tactic: the clump.

hOUH1Jl.pngEVlStiI.png5xz0Zi7.pngXi33zR3.png

The first enemy phase goes surprisingly well.

WS6eMd3.png

My friends the green guys who are actually blue guys make their appearance

sPcKnGt.pngXBKCCpU.png

Having two Silver Lance users is really nice.

QO5umqc.pngMtMoOeY.png

Cavs feel really durable in this game. Good thing I don’t get any myself.

nwAyxf5.pngxRptso7.png

And nobody was surprised

8VanMyV.png

He’s decently bulky, though.

HejP8Qq.png

Oh jeez Wyverns already

D21X0mS.pngbBqgAfa.pngSlL2YTo.png

I’m recruiting everyone, js y’all k. Treck’s entire job is to make that as difficult as possible.

qadEKE6.png

Jerrot is one of those Shanna names that I’m just not going to get used to. There’s nothing wrong with it, it’s just that he was Zealot for years. At least no one got Ulster-ed.

ZyojbAv.png

Enter green-blue number three.

CrGiacw.png

At least he’s got a vulnerary. Things don’t really look up for him, though. :\

WnPvSKZ.png

Damnit Dorothy

SHvLEE1.png

Grabbing him so he can grab Jerrot so he can grab Treck. Also so that he doesn’t proceed to suicide on random mooks.

Cu3sbzy.pngF8SpXe0.png

I decided to just bite the bullet and feed Bors the kill.

WqM5iII.png

I have been rewarded for my decision.

s1n8htS.png

The state of things. Wade is capable of holding off his corner by himself while the healers hide in a corner.

QSMc87q.png

Enemies run away to use vulneraries instead of suiciding on your crippled and outnumbered units and I think that’s lovely.

Gl5fOYM.png

I only checked the range on the cav thinking that if he couldn’t hit me I’d be fine. The archer couldn’t double, though, so it all worked out.

x7bT8TT.png

Wolt’s job in this chapter is taking out a single merc who’s just kinda dicking around in the middle of my formation

HJC8Bwu.pngnbDSW0m.png

More Treck

Q2aLhVR.pngxJz1fjI.pngGldnXNG.pngORpYyj9.png

Totally capable of handling himself.

1ZH11RI.png

The first of many enemy physicians.

(Physician is definitely the proper term for a psysic user. Think about it.)

D6fvBxz.png

Green-Jerrot tries to help and fails spectacularly

BfME92B.png

Thanks, Green-Jerrot. That was definitely the best target you could have picked.

RECV9AT.png

Support crit.

Ltc4aju.png

Heals for the only consistently successful member of my army.

yLCB2HC.pngRco0ox7.png

This guy had just too much health for Bors to take out without blowing a Silver

LgwNw8W.png

He’s the shittiest Roy ever and also probably my second most useful combat unit.

vxJzGDB.png

Marcus has hit the point where he’s pretty much on par with the rest of my guys.

tKemluo.png

These archers just kinda… ran away.

LYLY4uS.pngJcy6TU2.png5cgI2u8.png

Getting him to survive here was the only thing I had to rig this chapter.

eQpfnPR.png

Merlinus is the best bait

vwL8iop.pngrt2innl.png

Finally converted these two to the blue team.

2Fuzaqh.png

This will definitely come in handy

2Zl7QZs.pngBP9DBl7.png

Marcus level. He’s only here for another few chapters anyway.

o2jdF0y.png

Whoops

vSTeqkO.png

This mage was standing in a choke point that would have left me having to dodge another Wyvern stab with Treck if I didn’t attack him with Jerrot, so I let my rule about not attacking with him slide since it was a pretty minor attack to make it so he I wouldn’t have to rig more dodges.

vv6xDtO.png3T9aCyy.png

Wyvern threat: eliminated.

J49BoCr.pngwRswOMv.png

Yeah, this happened earlier, but the shots flow better this way

oRr5Bgd.png

This chapter has some sweet village loot

3SO3w4X.png

The cav got sick of attacking Merlinus and moved on to Clarine, but she’s as dodgy as Roy

NbNP5JC.png

:I

2PYfM8z.pnggzIUjVr.pnglBc4tPu.png

That’s what I think of you.

B3BkHu3.png

Context-less Dorothy level. Thank goodness for strength.

JXvDGDM.pngmyMiAlk.png

Last Wyvern. Poor Roy can’t do shit.

z2e1bxi.png

…Which is good, because the guy was loaded.

piC3p68.pngCxLU2G3.png

I’m glad that I have multiple bow users in Wyvern Emblem, even if they suck

TydskUY.png

I think I’m gonna let Wade get closer to 20 before popping this, but it will be greatly appreciated.

TRnNjp4.png

Why do I even bother

pSXbSMm.png

Stocking up

SFr7yMU.png

My precioussssss

Zm09R8C.png

This will also be highly appreciated

VCKI3oG.pngGzsX5XS.png

Taking on the boss’ little orgy of grunts

vbEbnEp.png

You do care!

lfmXrtp.pngicCjDlE.png

Wade got left behind to take care of the reinforcement cavs. I kinda wish I’d left the Halberd on him, but Clarine’s got it right now.

miBlYNA.pngGvPaoFv.png

*grumps audibly*

m3Q0bPk.pngOwB5scx.png

*grumping redacted*

wjzAfi3.png

I always found it weird that this was pretty much an outdoor chapter but they squished some chests in the corner. If this was any other game these’d have just been drops.

5XxKyZX.png6W0I8Kk.png

Marcus, being useful

orCIdpY.png

This’ll come in handy; my old one was running low

50qy7Hf.png

Huh, unique dialogue. Who’d ’a thunk it.

M5IAKMp.png

Returned to gut you, fatty

er7RIRV.png

One turn more and Wade probably would’ve been toast.

cPcAqaQ.png

Okay, real talk here. Is Lilina/Relena actually a real name or is just something that Japanese people made up and for some reason think is a name that European noble girls have? ‘Cause I’ve seen three of them and can’t find evidence of it being a real name.

Anyway, I was expecting this chapter to be a major pain in the ass, but honestly, compared to the hell that was chapter 5, this wasn't a big deal. The only real challenge was keeping Treck alive long enough to recruit him.

Tune in next time for the joining of two more very promising units

Which routes are you planning to take?

I'm planning on taking Echidna's route in the Western Isles because it gives me Geese a chapter earlier, and I'm planning on going Ilia because a) Juno's the only flier elegible to be used and b) my team of axe users and slowpokes would get wrecked in Sacae.

As long as Sue/Shin don't gain a level, you're off to Ilia. Good luck~!
