Emblem Blade Posted April 16, 2018 Share Posted April 16, 2018 (edited) Hello I am back yet again, after who-knows-how-long I was gone since I can't seem to remember when I was last here on Forums commenting/responding. With the Awakening DLC batch released not too long ago we get a few new challenges along with the Level Cap of 150. While I'm willing to make another topic about describing characters and what skill crests (Boost) as well as weapon attributes work for them but that's for later. However there is one new type of mission in History Mode that really got me really annoyed, bordering on rage after some time. Escort the Villagers. Yep, it's not that hard...until you have to do Caravan Dancer's mission for the Falchion's Opus and said mission has a Difficulty Setting of 117. Now, at first this might not seem like a big deal as you'll most likely have some pretty strong units who can chop through hoards. However, there are at least three waves before you can relax and all three aren't too kind if you didn't think first before hitting the 'Start Mission' option. It's basic at first, then you get three Summoners who will continuously spawn Shadows of some familiar characters until all of them are defeated, while you already have Shadow Freddy Bears coming after one of your villagers. Shortly after the Summoners appear, you have three Onmyojis that show up and spam long range lightning that start to heavily damage your other deployed character and all three villagers at the same time forcing you to work fast to defeat them as well or suffer a nearly unavoidable game over. Then you get three Priests who will attempt to heal any enemy units that they can get to, meaning that if those above mentioned Summoners, Shaows and Onmyojis are still present, you have a a storm of enemies coming at you. If you can get past them, you have more fliers, Ryujins/Manaketes, alongside some more Shadows for the remaining two enemy waves so you get little relaxation. Then you get Camilla and Co. showing up at the end. The mission to get the Falchion Opus will put you at your limit or make you work above it if you can't keep up. Honestly to me, this one mission is harder than the Story Mode itself and almost all of the other History Mode quests as you only have two units at your disposal against a lot of enemies not long after the mission begins. It took me a lot of work after five consecutive failures, the last one as a result of losing a villager just a few seconds before the mission would have been a success. I ended up resorting to using... Level 106 Blade Lord Lyn w/Divine Favor Sol Katti (Rainstorm/Amped/Wingslayer/Strong VI); Skills: Luna/Awakening/Astra/Armored Blow/Lethality/Galeforce Level 107 Priestess Sakura w/Divine Favor Spellbane Yumi (Rainstorm/Amped/Dracoslayer/Strong VI/Topsy-Turvy); Skills: Luna/Awakening/Astra/Live-to-Serve/Galeforce/Lethality I unlocked all the Offensive and Boost Crests and a majority of the Defensive Skill Crests unlocked and still found it hard. I nearly lost Lyn on three seperate occasions and almost lost Sakura during a heated up Dragon rush when I was using Lyn to remove all the Shadow Fliers assaulting two of the other villagers. Had I lost Sakura, I would have lost seven times in a row. Edited April 16, 2018 by Emblem Blade Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
