Chapter 7: Dark Emblem Walkthrough
While on their way to Brodia, Alear and Alfred are attacked by Alcryst, the prince of the kingdom of Brodia, accompanied by his two allies, Lapis and Citrinne. He then recognizes the prince and instantly apologizes for nearly harming the Divine Dragon. They then join the group and head towards the castle, but their path is blocked by another army. They are the forces of Elusia led by their second princess Hortensia.
Dark Emblem Preparation
For this fight, you will be controlling 12 units including Alcryst, Lapis, and Citrinne. It’s better to bring in Etie to take care of the flyers and cover half the battlefield along with Alcryst the other half. Bringing in someone who can tear through enemies like Alfred can help lessen the threat from backline units.
You will experience the use of the smash mechanic with Lapis as she wields a blade that is strong enough to knock down and push back the enemy. The problem is that these heavy weapons are slow, so they lose initiative and cannot follow up.
Dark Emblem Strategy
There are two barricades of enemies before you can get close to Hortensia. To avoid the possibility of being overwhelmed, it’s best to deal with these barricades one by one and let them come to your formation via kites instead.
At the second barricade, prepare your archers to cover the top and bottom sides of the bridge where two flyers will enter.
When facing Hortensia, watch out for her showdown attack as she carries the Ring of the Exalted Princess which allows allies adjacent to the target to chain attack. Make sure your tankiest unit is the front line, as you can expect Hortensia and her allies to surround it. Baiting them this way will allow you to circle them instead of the other way around.
