    I need to grind a little to beat the final boss, but many of my charaters are Lv.16-20 Promoted. I want to reclass them, but so many are ready for new classes I don't think I can spend that much on Seals and still have money for weapons.

    If I sell everything I could drum up 40k, but I have a lot of good stuff.

    I was grinding Nawi to make a better Nah. I needed an Axe. I had SIX SILVER AXES just sitting there. She broke 2 whole Silver Axes, 1 Steel Axe, and 1 Bronze Axe to level up 25 times as Wyvern Rider -> Wyvern Lord. Faster than I thought. Still have FOUR SILVER AXES LEFT!

    Nawi had INCREDIBLE LUCK not getting hit during her training. Then I realized her Skills: Odd Rythem (avoid +10) Fast Burn (avoid +15) Tantivy (avoid + 10) She was rarely hit.

    Now Naw needs similar training.
    My Nah is amazing after becoming an Assassin. Do you use the DLC at all for grinding purposes? By the way her name is Nowi not Nawi.

      I use the bonus box to summon teams to fight. I haven't bought the DLC yet. I might though.

      I'm just grinding units to kill the final boss. Nowi and Nah are amazing units. Their stat growth as Wyvern Riders makes them powerful fast. They have very high HP and Strength for their level. I made Lon'Qu a trickster for Lucky Seven. Chrom is a Paladin now.

      I'm ready to beat this boss already.

      DLC has been "meh" so far. It's cool seeing old characters again, but I wish they had some battle lines aside from just "...!!" The old maps with previous FE music is cool too.

      I think they'll be adding the new Dread Fighter class next week. This week we got Walhart available via spotpass and the EXPonential Growth Map which lets you fight Risen who give a 100 exp after every defeat.

      I kinda wish the maps were cheaper though, only because there will be so many of them and various ones are new scenarios on similar maps.

        I think Season 2 of the DLC is supposed to be a lot better. I liked using the exponential growth map to grind my straggling units up to speed and to create powerhouses in the process. I haven't even started chapter 14 yet on my second file because I've been grinding so much. I'm working on bringing Kjelle and Inigo up to speed right now. On a side note I have a strange love for the Assassin class and the stat caps for a lot of the characters as an Assassin seem to love me too. As for the spotpass maps I don't plan on touching them until they all have been released So I can run through them one at a time. without waiting weeks between each map.

          I BEAT HE GAME! The last boss is such a pain.

          Spoiler:
          After trying over and over, luck was in my favor. Sumia with a brave Lance did 4 damage 3 times. Pavise activated every time she attacked. Chrom was her partner and attacked twice for 25 damage. He was left with 12 HP. Avatar Killed him with a forged arcwind. Forged for hit chance, because the boss is so hard to hit.

            Ah, Fire Emblem Awakening was an amazing game, although I had a strategy that made the last boss easy for me.

            Spoiler:
            I realized that both of my defenses on the sides were weakening,so I put Chrom and the Avatar together, then used Olvia's dance move to give them another turn and killed the final boss. They were both my strongest units, and I hoarded all of the stat boosting items for myself, so the final battle for me ended in 3 turns.


            The DLC is nice for training for EXP. I used it to build relationships so I could have everyone married before the end of the game. I found the "The Golden Gaffe" easy to train with, because the enemies simply run away and only attack if you attack them, that way you don't have to worry about your character getting killed.

              Congrats on beating the game.

              Spoiler:
              As for beating the final boss the first time I had Ricken and Yarne rush up to land a few hits with a forged Arcwind and had my Avatar take over and land the final hit in my first play through.


              @Ghosteon, "The Golden Gaffe" DLC map is more for gold purposes than training your team which is EXPonential Growth's job.

                I've gone five straight chapters now with nothing but Donnel and his wife Paired Up... and a Ladle. I gave him a Glass Sword as a backup weapon, just in case the Ladle breaks, but his Luck is just so freaking high! 48 Luck on an Armsthrift-Sol Hero Donny just totally breaks the game. (That said, I paired him with Nowi, and Nah only ever needs a single Dragonstone. She still has her first, even after a ton of Risen grinding.)

                Note: I'm on Hard-Classic, for the playthrough I'm on now.

                  I paired Donnel up with Panne and as a result Yarne has become my strongest unit.

                    While we're on the pairings, does anyone else love the Support conversations?

                      Love the supports. So much fun.

                      Started a Hard-Classic Run after beating Hard-Casual. Totally different game. I have terrible record with new characters. When Sully is introduced, she dies, reset. When Kellam is introduced, he got Hammered, reset. Sumia survived because I paired her up with Chrom, Again. She is still level one.

                      I don't plan on resetting for every character, but at the beginning of the game I feel like I need to hold on to the few people I have. (especially parents)

                      Supports Conversations are the reason (for me anyways) that a lot of FE games have great replay value. That's why as good as Radiant Dawn's gameplay was, the generic supports didn't really give me a reason to go through the game more than a couple times.

                        Second play-through on Hard-Classic. Only perfect map I've done was Paralogue 1. Got Donnle to Level 3, got both chests open, got Vaike to Lv10 to re-class him, got Sumia to Lv5.

                        Great level. First try, no resets.

                        Vaike as a barbarian/berzerker is amazing. He just smashes everything. My first game used a lot of speed-demon and magic users, but not strength based bruisers.


                        My new Avatar, Julius, is +Speed/-Magic. I thought about marrying Lucina for the Stats. (+9 speed). But I might marry for love. I LOVE Sully. She is my favorite character. I have not unlocked Anna yet, but from what I have seen... I'm curious.

                        I don't know who to marry. Marrying the Avatar to Lucina would give her a good partner, which she never had last game. She was always alone because she can only form supports with other Children. Plus, there are some ironic spoiler reasons to be married to Lucina before the climax of the game.

                        Sully is awesome and needs no explanation. "Because reasons are for chumps!"

                          Okay, I'm on my fourth playthrough — Lunatic-Casual — and I can't get past Chapter 2. I'm expecting 3 and onward to be easier, but right now 2 is just totally kicking my arse. xD

                          Any advice here? I know to keep the attention on Freddy for the first few chapters, but that isn't much help without knowing where to put him. xD

                          Took... 17 tries, but I totally did it. *Hardest part of Lunatic over; takes 16 tries for Chapter 3* |D

                          Yeah, if I could just get through Chapter 2 on Lunatic/Classic, I feel like I could finish the game entirely. I just don't see how it's possible though. On Lunatic/Casual I barely got by, lol. I had to sacrifice everyone while hiding the My Unit and Chrom while getting lucky enough with Fredrick to avoid a couple deadly hits.

                            I summoned Mist from the Bonus Box. Her guys are Lv3-5. I was training Gaius and Muriel who were wanting level ups. I did EVERYTHING PERFECT.

                            Then a Lv5 Mage got a CRITICAL HIT on Muriel. She had full health, not anymore. Reset.

                            Panne and Virion are working well together, I plan on Yarne being some kind of Bow User.

                            It is Lissa's Birthday today. SO, she got extra DEF and RES.

                            Anyone try out the new Dread Fighter class? It's based off a class from FE2, but with a bit of tweaks. They have awesome resistance, good attack (can wield swords/axes), but can also use tomes as well. The sprite looks pretty cool too; sort of ninja-like.

                              I reclassed two of my characters into it near the end of my Hard Classic play through and I liked it alot for both the nice resistance, the versatility and how the class looks.

                                Just bought the Golden Pack and Bloodlines Pack.

                                After reading the Dread Fighter Abilities, it looks a little overpowered. But I don't know for sure. +10 Resistance sounds game breaking to characters like Vaike who has 1 Res near Lv20.

                                +10 Attack on Player's Turn sound powerful, but really isn't. There are many maps where 99% of the action happens on the enemy turn. So this ability is balanced.

                                I'll update this post when I actually play the new class.

                                It doesn't end there. Eventually we'll get the DLC Bride class, which is a female-only class, and allows the usage of staves, bows, lances.

                                  I bet that they wield a bouquet that has a retractable spear disguised as a flower!

                                  haha, don't know about that, but either way it's pretty weird seeing someone fight in a wedding dress.

                                  Started a playthrough again on lunatic/classic again, lol. I'm gonna get past chapter 2 if it that's last thing I do. :\

                                  edit: Got to chapter 4! Lost Virion, Vaike, Sully, Stahl, and Miriel in the process though, lol.

                                    Accidentally saved over my second play of the game with my older game. I had over 20 hours on my second game that got overwritten.

                                    Casual or Classic? Chapter 2 is killer on Classic; lost 3 units on that one, but Chapter 3 isn't much easier either. Somehow was lucky enough to keep Kellam and Sumia alive. If you can get past those two, you shouldn't have too much trouble with the rest.

                                    I usually avoid lunatic on FE games, but normal and hard were much too easy in this game.
