Normal/Hard Mode Enemy comparison for Chapter 1

Recommended Posts

I recently finally got around to play the game on Normal Mode for a change and was rather surprised by just how much slower my units leveled. This made me curious about how different the enemy forces are between the modes. So I played through Chapter 1 side by side in both modes to collect a bit of data about the enemy's army composition and strength:

Considering that it seems like there is no EXP reduction on Hard Mode and enemies of the same level will be equally strong, this makes me wonder how much harder Hard mode actually is. Facing more and higher leveled enemies means more EXP, which means faster access to promotions and spells.

Something doesn't seem right here...

I'd still say it's harder. Unless it greatly accelerates leveling the higher enemy stats will likely outweigh the growths gained on levels outside of people promoting to Tier 2.
