    Haha, yeah I love FE, but Lunatic would be too much of a challenge.
    Yeah, probably going to go Hard>Casual.

    Lunatic/Classic is only really tough for the first five chapters. It's almost impossible to get past those without losing anyone. Lost about 4 characters during those chapters, and I figured that's the best I was gonna do so I continued on. After that though, you can abuse the DLC maps to train up everyone and not have everyone die on the first turn.

    Playing on Hard/Classic

    Haven't lost any units yet, but that's only because I keep restarting whenever I lose one. After child-rearing kicks in, I'll just let anyone I don't give a hoot about die...like Virion. I hate that bastard.

      Virion is one of my favorites! I like archers. In my first game he was married to Sully. I LOVE Sully. She is my favorite and Virion was adjacent. I like the way he transitions the game into it's Second Act.

      I'm at Chapter 12 of Hard-Classic, second run. I'm Planning to marry Avatar to Lucina. Kellam/Nowi is a lot of fun as a tank. Vike still has 1 Resistance. Every time he gets +1RES I lose someone and must reset. Eventually I'll make him a Dread Fighter, or replace him with Gerome.

        In my first runthrough, Vaike/Owain and Gerome/Cherche made two unstoppable combinations. Before I start my second file...I must know something!

        -If I use different combos in marriage this time around, and change the appearance of the child units, which model shows up in my Unit Gallery? For example, my Owain is blonde. If, on my second playthrough, he becomes brown-haired, will my Unit Gallery feature a blonde or brown-haired Owain?

          That's an interesting question which I'm wondering as well though not pertaining to Owain because I got the brown haired Owain in both my save files. I'll have to check that out later though only Yarne and Kjelle actually differed in hair color between my saves.

            I just did chapter 12 hard classic. I found it very hard. I used defense tonics on everybody - Even Kellam/Nowi! Panne with beast slayer was a lot of fun against all the mounted people.

            Panne was reclassed into Wyvern Rider. Her first axe is a forged LADLE! Ladles are so cheep to forge I maxed it out. 7MT, 9 Crit. Actually a good first weapon.

            Kellam gained 6-7 level in chapter 12 and maxed out his levels. Promoted to Great Knight. Kellam OWNED half the map.

              Well, be sure to tell me the results!

              Also, just started new file on Sacred Stones...after playing Awakening so long, the jump from 3ds to GBA was pretty jarring. The first two chapters were hard to get through due to me expecting more out of the game and trying to get used to the new interface(I miss not being able to pair up like I was able to in Awakening)

              I cannot make myself reclass Panne. Right now her Lck and Str are already so amazing, and that paired with a Beaststone+ she just... She never loses a fight and often takes down three or four enemies during the Enemy Phase alone. She's my secret weapon and probably the biggest asset on the team and being reclassed is just awkward for me, aha.

                I checked last night and it shows the children from the latest play through it seems so it would show Owain with brown hair in yours.

                The magic of my avatar is just so ridiculously overpowered.

                With even the weakest spells I'm clocking in over 145 damage average whenever I get a critical with Ignis activated.

                My avatar, Chrom, Frederick, Libra, Lucina, Gregor, and Thurja slaughter damn near anything that tries to get to close.

                  Tharja could pretty much tank anything on my second play through with Nosferatu spam. Henry was almost as good but Tharja seemed to be better at it to me. I actually didn't use Frederick after pairing him with Miriel because I had others I wanted to train and eventually he fell behind.

                  Hard Classic is starting to get irritating for me, especially when it comes to recruiting child units and leveling up my weaker units.

                  I'm a newcomer to the series, so it's probably my own fault. I'm just more used to games like Final Fantasy Tactics Advance, where a) your units don't die permanently (yes, I realize Casual mode allows your units in Awakening to not die, but I really don't want to start a new file after so much work already) and b) there's always the chance of battles popping up with reasonable enemies to level up your weaker units with nearly every time you move on the world map.

                  Oh, the only child units I have so far are Lucina and Owain.

                  Carchar, if you're worried about not being able to level up, see if there's anywhere you can buy Reeking Boxes yet (I don't know since I have yet to play on Classic with any difficulty) as they spawn foes on whatever part of the map you're on. They'll be relatively expensive on Hard mode to discourage grinding, but they're worth it.

                    This is my first Fire Emblem as well after the first few missions on my second play through I was able to adjust to the noticeable jump in difficulty between Normal/Casual and Hard/Classic. All of the children characters can become awesome if you take the time to train them seeing as typically they'll surpass their parents in stats.

                      Yeah, Gerome and Owain are two of my best units.
                      ...
                      ....
                      I hope FE: Awakening gets a sequel with similar gameplay and interface soon. I love the game so much! (I also want the Summer of Bonds DLC because I've heard it features major fanservice. I have yet to know what that 'fanservice' is.)

                        I finally beat the game a few days ago! Unfortantly being terrible at strategy games, my victory was half-baked, and about half of my roster didn't make it to see the end (which isn't good seeing I only was playing on Normal/Classic)

                        I plan to do a second runthough on normal, acually give myself a chance to absorb the game more carefully and learn the game play a little deeper. Keeping my characters alive and getting all the kids/original marriages I wanted.

                        Here's how my supports panned out.

                        Chrom/Sumia
                        Avatar/Nowi
                        Henry/Cordelia
                        Stahl/Sully (My favourite relationship)
                        Ricken/Lisa
                        Libra/Panne


                        Deaths/Retirements

                        Miriel
                        Vaike
                        Virion
                        Gregor
                        Lon' qu
                        Donnel
                        Tharja
                        Cherche
                        Olivia
                        Kellam
                        Maribelle
                        Tiki


                        I'm finishing up some of the bonus box/DLC/Orange Paralogue Maps.

                        Spoiler:
                        I have to say, I really am dissapointed in the Bonus Box Paralouge missions so far. I mean, it's really cool that you can obtain Walhart and Grangrel, but it just seems like weak writing to bring them back. I'm really dissapointed that Emmeryn returns too. It just...it throws one of the best story points in this game right out the window.

                          I have to say, I really am dissapointed in the Bonus Box Paralouge missions so far. I mean, it's really cool that you can obtain Walhart and Grangrel, but it just seems like weak writing to bring them back. I'm really dissapointed that Emmeryn returns too. It just...it throws one of the best story points in this game right out the window.
                          They are more so for character. So you don't even have to add them to the map if you don't want to keep the story elements.

                          I hope FE: Awakening gets a sequel with similar gameplay and interface soon. I love the game so much! (I also want the Summer of Bonds DLC because I've heard it features major fanservice. I have yet to know what that 'fanservice' is.)
                          Well the fanservice is
                          Spoiler:
                          Cordelia in a bikini without her top on covering her chest and Tharja in a in a bikini adjusting her bottom half of the suit (the view is from the bellow). There are also special picture for Chrom and Gaius but I haven't seen them. plus they get special conversations with Avatar. And all sorcerers wear a swimsuit in this map.
                          and there are a LOT of conversations.

                          I mentioned that gripe on the previous page before, but:

                          Spoiler:
                          Emmeryn being brought back was kinda a big plot hole. Not only that, but they had to give her a depressing ending to top it off.


                          Anyways, I think I'm done with this game for awhile. I've overplayed it. On to previous FE titles.

                            I simply don't view post-game as storyline.
                            For example, Emmeryn returning was just a bonus or 'what-if' chapter, not part of the storyline. Let's face it; if Emmeryn came back to life during the main game, the plot would just rapidly decline.
                            ...
                            Also, I'm convinced my Awakening game has a jinx. Whoever I recruit to join my Awakening team from Sacred STones (through Bonus Box), that character then dies in Sacred Stones.
                            *sigh*
                            I miss Seth from Sacred Stones. At least he's in Awakening now.

                              ^How did you let Seth die? He is the best Jeigan in the series!

                              ^Frederick has that title now.

                              Those paralouges aren't really post-game, they're available before the final fight. Either way, they were still given endings and what-not so I can't simply brush it off as a "what-if" scenario.
