This will also ensure that attacking Daein troops don't take her out on the very first turn since they'll probably be too busy targetting all the other NPC soldiers.[/spoiler:a674b0a82c]

    [spoiler:7bbc007877]Good point, but does that work if you aren't using Mordecai? I suppose you could Shove 3 times. I usually just defend Astrid for 1 turn, with mounted units you can do it (personally I use Oscar and Titania). This is just another example of the variety of options available in Fire Emblem, which is why I love it. [/spoiler:7bbc007877]

    Sorry. I thought that your "don't worry about the shoving" meant "don't bother with the shoving". Maybe I should start reading better.

    And I think we were spoilering this because the guy/girl who started talking about the Astrid/Gatrie situation did it in spoilerspace.

    Yeah I did (guy, for the record). It's sort of "secret" so I don't know, it just seemed right to spoiler it to be on the safe side. It's the sort of thing you'd find on GameFAQs or whatnot. Some people like to find that stuff out on their own.

    Two mounted units can cover Astrid perfectly well for turn 1 with the help of the NPC dudes and Gatrie, if you prefer to move your force forward immediately.

    That's probably very true. But in Astrid's case I get nervous of the enemy's tendency to target NPCs first, so I make sure Ike's gets severely smoted ASAP.

    But I might try sending in the cavalry in this playthrough.

    It's the first turn though, if by some freak chance they get to her, restarting takes like 2 minutes. You can take out the archer with whichever mounted unit you send to cover her left side.

    Yes, but it's the principle of the thing. Smite/shove gives me a sure-fire way of getting Astrid before she gets the chance to get butchered by Daein. That kind of thing is important to me.

    Yeah, I'm weird.

    I can understand that. My wierdness is a different way. Shoving/smiting seems somewhat lacking in "elegance" as far as strategy goes. Though it is clever.

    Oh, I <3 shoving and now I actually miss it in 7 and 8. That the potential of just one space can redefine your strategy so very much is great.

    To me, anyway.

    what's everyone's ideal 2nd weapon for Paladins? I like the following combinations for each:

    Oscar: Bows *le duh*
    Kieran: Swords
    Makalov: Spears
    Astrid: Axes

    I think I went Bow, Spear, Spear, Sword. I only used the first three until they promoted, and then switched over to titania and Astrid, but I was doing a ladies man run, so don't take it as Gospel. Oscar, Kieran, and Astrid are the three best, followed a bit by Geoffry and Malakov.

    General question: About what point in the game should the majority of my units be hitting level 20? I know I levelled Ike too fast, but other than him none of my units are 20 yet and I'm at like, chapter 16. Most of my units are like lvl.12-15. Oscar and Ilyana are close to 20 though. I used a Scroll on Soren and Marcia.

    [spoiler:ea6862fe53]There is a mission coming up that's four parts long, I'd expect most of them to level then. Also, make sure Ike is 20 during that mission, at least by the end of it.[/spoiler:ea6862fe53]

    Last time I played through, almost all my units leveled up during Chapter 19. But I'd already been through the game once and knew who I wanted to use and how I wanted to level them, so your mileage may vary.

    Hmm.

    Are you trying to level up all your units equally? Because, generally speaking, that's a bad idea and you'll end up with a bunch of underlevelled units. Focus on a core group of about 12 characters and you'll be fine (unless they all die unexpectedly).

    Other than that, I can't really help you. On Easy, I usually get pretty much everyone I plan to use promoted during the desert chapter and earlier and on Normal the promotions start to really roll in during Chapter 17.

    I do have to admit that I'm a pussy who hasn't tried Hard yet, so I wouldn't know what the average promotion time is on that one.

    Around the same if you are quick and good at doing mission goals, a little slower if you're not. Hard mode generally has more units in the early missions and fewer, tougher units in the later ones, so be very careful who you pick and why. Even though I did it, I wouldn't suggest dumping a whole ton of bonus exp into Mist or the Princess on Hard mode, just because that stuff can be used more effectively on great units that start awful, like Soren or Rhys.

    Hmm, I'm playing on Normal, so I suppose that I am roughly on target. I realise that you can only realistically use a select group of units. Without my 'Cube I'm not sure which ones I'm using precisely. Once Oscar and Ilyana promote, I think about half of my main team will be promoted, the rest in the mid 'teens. Also, I plan to incorporate a couple of the already-promoted units that you get in the 2nd half of the game.

    Also, I have been kind of cheap with Bonus EXP, and I have about 1000 saved up at the moment.

    When I played through normal immediately after doing my ladies mode run, I had about 3000 left by the time I got the Princess, so I had a lot of fun with that.

    Bows for Kieran, Axes for Astrid, Makalov and Oscar when I'm not going for Triangle Attack. Simply because axes are the most powerful weapon and the paladins usually have the Skill to pull it off. And I pick bows for Kieran simply because I like bows.

    Besides, you get quite a few great sword and lance users, but not that many magnificent axe wielders.

    Agreed. Axes are the most powerful weapon in the game, and the most unwieldy. But since Paladins will have ungodly constitution and skill by the time they promote, giving them (killer) axes for MASSIVE DAMAGE is a no brainer to me.

    And uh...swords for Kiernan, I guess, since they have the highest accuracy and with the Gamble skill, Kiernan needs all the accuracy he can get for big hits. Besides, he doesn't have the magic growth to justify spear use (unlike Oscar, mmm flame lance) and the various throwable axes sort of negate the need for a bow.

    Bolt Axe and Flame Lance, do these suit anyone? I've heard Oscar and Marcia for the Lance, but the Axe users (aside from the Paladins) don't really get Magic very often.

    I mean, if you save all your Arms Scrolls and get Mist an A rank in swords, the Sonic/Runesword combo makes her one of the better units. Keeping in mind she sucks unless she has at least a B rating in Swords.

    Oh man, I don't care what anyone says, Brom is the friggin man. This guy has got like, 9 in Res as a lv. 2 General, which beats Gatrie's 2 handily. Though he doesn't double-hit very often, Luna has made one strike more than enough to decimate an enemy. I'll see how Tormod and Makalov turn out after a bit of bonus exp.

    I really, really liked Sacred Stones, even though I never finished it, and now that PoR is at GameStop for like twenty bucks, this might just be the purchase I need to get any use out of either of my consoles since I got hooked on WoW.

    Bolt Axe and Flame Lance, do these suit anyone? I've heard Oscar and Marcia for the Lance, but the Axe users (aside from the Paladins) don't really get Magic very often.
    Tanith gets pretty good Magic as well, for a physical unit.

    Bolt Axe... probably best on a Paladin, yeah,

    I have come to a horrible realisation:

    The GBA RNG hates my healers. It doesn't matter who it is. Serra, Priscilla, Natasha, Moulder, L'Arachel, they all get screwed in Magic. Always.

    Now, granted, they usually become pretty awesome high-resistence dodgers, but they never manage to make a dent in anything once promoted.

    Fortunately, my mages tend to get blessed, so I guess it all still balanced out, but still... level 12 and still only 3 Magic? Damn.

    Mang, there is nothing more satisfying than having problems with one chapter, near the end, then through a stroke of brilliance device a strategy that utterly annihilates the boss of the chapter and the last few enemies left.
    Also, fuck you Petrine, you went down like a little bitch.

    Unlike previous FE games, all magic based bosses in PoR are easy bitches, because you have horrendously high res characters in this game. Mist, Rhys, Rhyson, and the sages just laugh at all magic users.

    This thread makes me happy and sad. I'm happy that the series gets the respect it deserves. But every time I see this, I get sad that GoD is so far away.

    Replay all three games on Hard, mang.
    Or following a specific pattern IE promote them once they reach level 10 or only use girls or only use dudes, stuff like that.
    Also, try getting different support conversations. They're entertaining as fuck (not as much in PoR, though).

    PoR has GREAT support conversations. Jill + Lethe explains most of the backstory, Soren+Stephan explains why Soren is the way he is, and anything with Bastion, Kierian, or Ilyana (Ilyana's conversations are truly amazing) is completely and totally worth it.
