Chapter 4: A Tour of the Land in Bloom
While making their journey through Firene, Alear and Alfred discover that the Corrupted are invading the city. They head into town and run into Céline, Alfred’s sister, who luckily escaped the ambush.

Combat preparations of a land in bloom
For this fight, you will be able to control ten units, two of which are Louis and Chloé, who are surrounded by enemies. During the party preparation phase, make sure to equip Sigurd’s Ring on one of your units. You will also gain the ability to rewind actions you took in battle using the Draconic Time Crystal.
Learn to use the Draconic Time Crystal
To use the Draconic Time Crystal during combat, you can access it by pressing the plus (+) button and selecting it from the menu. Resets the moments of fighting with the crystal. Going back clears all subsequent moments and critical hits don’t work on the crystal either. Note that resetting the turn and trying again will not fix a missed critical hit.
Execute the secondary objective for additional gold
You will also be presented with a secondary objective which is to visit the houses of the townspeople and warn them about the invasion. This can be done by sending a unit in front of the doors of your house and having the unit talk to the people inside the house. This must be done before any enemy units can land on the gate tile. If you do it successfully, the townspeople will reward you with some items or gold.
Combat Phase and Land in Bloom Strategies
