Atano Posted October 4, 2020 Share Posted October 4, 2020 Over the last few months, I have been doing some ironman runs of FE: Three houses. I have seen a lot of people saying that it is one of the worst FE games to iron man. I can agree to some degree with the arguments people make, but this game gives you a lot of utilities that the previous games do not have. Gambits like Impregnable wall or Blessing makes it a lot easier and safer to iron man than I imagined. Dodge tanking is also a reliable way in this game if you are willing to sacrifice your dancer. First, I needed a set of rules. Obviously resetting and Divine Pulse were not allowed. I decided to ignore all the DLC content like DLC stat boosters, DLC missions, etc. and see how it goes. In my first BL run, I used the following set of rules: Game over ends the run No resetting No Divine Pulse. No DLC missions: E.g. Feeding animals tutorial, Teatime with Rhea etc... No DLC items. E.g Vajra-Mushti, Chalice of Beginnings, DLC Stat boosters, Renown, etc... No DLC classes. No DLC Aux battles (yellow aux battles) No NG+ No Anna or Ashen Wolfs recruitment (Anna's secret shop is allowed, main story mission) Maddening difficulty (In my later runs, I also turn off the online features which makes EXP distribution a bit more important in the early game.) Here is a list of all my iron man runs so far. I have streamed everything, including monastery, tutoring, aux battles and paralogues. The following links are reddit posts where I describe my teams and listed every mission that I did in the runs. Blue Lions Iron man Golden Deer ironman Black eagles (CF) iron man Golden deer, no recruitment iron man Black Eagles (church route) iron man Blue Lions, no recruitment iron man Overall I'm having a lot of fun doing those runs but I still have some things that I want to improve. Using aux battles makes it easy to get abilities like Hit+20, Death blow, etc. in the early game which makes the whole run a lot easier. My final goal is an iron man run where I don't use aux battles at all. But currently, we're doing a PMU Golden deer iron man run on my channel. Has anyone of you tried to ironman Three houses and what was your experience with it? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
