It’s been a while since the last update, but it’s back. This is a massive update, featuring massive polish to the existing maps, 4 new maps doubling the previous count, a bunch of new playable units, buffs to hardmode, and much more. It’s a much better hack, and I’d say it’s absolutely worth a try. For a very important note:
- 5 Pre Split Chapters, 3 Post Split Chapters
- 22 Playable characters (A lot, but due to the split)
- An epic war story, spanning over the continents of Valencia and Tavuk
- A bunch of fun weapons as rewards (You’ll need them for hardmode)
Hard Mode Survival Guide
Hardmode isn’t too bad (except for one particular chapter), but it’s always nice to have a guide in case you’re struggling. I strongly suggest playing the chapter at least once before consulting, as seeing what crazy stuff happens is always fun (at least for me). No matter how hard it may seem, have the knowledge that all testing was done of 0% growths without player criticals, so it’s absolutely possible.
This one should be pretty easy, but if you need any tips, my best advice would be to charge as quickly as possible with Gejan. It’s pretty hard for him to die here, and he has an elixer if it comes to that. Also, for this chapter, avoid Ron seeing any combat, except maybe one of the fighter reinforcements, and the slim sword cavalier if you absolutely have to.
Just completing the objective normally should be pretty easy, but getting all the rewards might be a little tricky. The chest in the bottom right doesn’t matter too much, and the chest in the top left is pretty nice at most. You’re gonna want to visit the village first. Have gejan lure out the paladin so eliwood can kill him (That one won’t move unless you get in its range). For the paladin that rushes toward you from the bottom left, make sure it attacks with the javalin first so eliwood can actually take it out. As for why the village is so important, it contains boots. The armory should be pretty easy to reach. I’d say grab a longbow, and whatever else you think you might need down the line. You could also save your gold for the chapter 4 armory (the next one), but it has a few similar items and by then you’ll have more than enough things to sell even if you only are completing a few side objectives.
The wall of enemies on hardmode prevents a 3 turn clear, so you HAVE to go the long way. Thunder is effective against fliers, so Lughte can oneshot the wyvern (she’s also strong enough to at least tank one hit). The most important side objective is visitng the village as it contains enough healing for a lifetime, so do that. The boss can’t one round Ron, so as long as he has some vulneraries he can rush to the escape point without worry.
You only have one goal and that is to get the hell out of there as quickly as possible (You already get an extra vulnerary just for making it here anwyays). If you’re struggling, don’t worry about the chest, don’t worry about the village, just fly Ron to the arrive point as quickly as possible.
Similar to 2x, the chests are nice, but don’t matter if you’re really struggling. I’d suggest at least trying to go for the one on the right though, as it’s slightly helpful for the next chapter. The main challenge of this chapter is rescuing and dropping curt and lughte all around the map, as they are very effective against the wyverns. Make sure they’re at least on the upper half of the map by turn 3 or 4 so they can deal with the tops wyverns blocking your way to the seize point. Lughte is also good against the boss, so you can kill them in one round. Eliwood can still kill in two rounds, though.
If you looked at any of the other chapters, you are here pretty much guaranteed. If you’re here for any reason, it’s this chapter. I’ve got one thing to tell you, and that’s good fucking luck, I’m outta here.
The armory, chest, and killing the boss don’t matter too much, especially since ya’ll are on growths. But visitng the villages will be really helpful not because they grant good items, but because they spawn nps, which will keep the onslaught at bay for a turn or 2, maybe even 3 if you’re helping them a lot. I won’t give too much advice for this chapter, as there are endless ways to tackle it, and I don’t wanna tell you what to do, but I will say that the dracoshield should go to someone prepared to face a lot of enemy phase combat. You can ask in the comments for even more help if ya’ll really find this chapter that hard. On a final note, keep Jennifer alive if you go to 4x.
A breather after the living hell of chp 4. I even needed it, and I made the damn hack. Here you’ll just want to rescue stan and get him to escape quickly. You’re guaranteed pretty much to have a lot of anti cavalry weapons by this point, so the cavaliers are no issue if you turtle a little, which you can for the first few turns if you really want to. But it’s an escape map, so just get outta there. Oh yeah, I said keep jennifer alive. Yeah, she one round the mages and archers, so she’s the one unit I say you have to deploy along Stan, of course.
Back to the scrub squad. This chapter is unfinished and has very few reinforcements, so you can rout the map fairly easliy. If not, though, they I suggest taking this chapter like new mystery or binding blade earlygame: have your weaker units tank at least one hit (you have a healer now) so you can gangbang them with giant ball of death strats. If you want to save Henry, send Gejan up there, he’ll be fine. He doesn’t matter though, as this is the final chapter of the hack. Take the oppurtunity to see all the death quotes, I guess.
That is all.
- The story only really picks up in chapter 3, and stay’s simpler and focused until then.
- There will be no major route split. Rather, there is an army split, but it’s not that bad, as the convoy is shared at times, and when it isn’t, you will be let known beforehand
Not that hard to unlock but
Chp 2x: Complete chp 2 in 8 turns or less
Chp 4x: Stan survives chp 4
