INTRODUCTION >>> [INT] ############################################################################## Hi everybody. Welcome to my other FAQ. As I said before, playing games and writing FAQ are my relaxing methods. Fire Emblem - Shadown Dragon for NDS is a good game, so I decided to write a FAQ about it; based on my previous FAQ for FE8 The Sacred Stones. That's all. Maybe this is the short introduction. However, I don't like the diffuseness and hate beating about the bush. Now, here we go! ############################################################################## <<< II. SOME NOTES ABOUT THIS FAQ >>> [NTE] ############################################################################## * I wrote this FAQ by myself, based on my previous FAQ for Fire Emblem 8 The Sacred Stones.

If you feel my FAQ is not good or lack of information, you can find other guides. * There are some gaiden chapters in the game. However, I've tried many ways, but couldn't access them (just only one).

GENERAL STRATEGY >>> [STR] ############################################################################## * First, you should remember this famous statement. "Military tactics like water. The course of water runs from the high places to the lowers, the way in war is to avoid the strong and attack the weak. Water shapes its course according to the terrain, the tactician create the victory according to the opponent status. In war there are no fixed conditions, as water remains no fixed shape. The person who can change his tactics according to the opponent status and get the winning, maybe called a saintly tactician". (Sun Tzu - The Art of War) So, you will be the one who can make good ways to win the game, not my FAQ! * Watch all conversations, all events * Always preview the map before fighting! * Read the Guide function of the game for more details. * Try to recruit all playable chars, also LvUp them! One important thing: you can't use all of them. Therefore, just focus on your favourite chars! Besides, try not let anyone die. * Protect your Main Char (Marth) carefully. If he dies, the game will over and you'll replay from the beginning! * Keep flying units away from bows! * Save your money and goods (itms, wpns, etc...). * Items in secret shops are limit! Therefore, try to buy them all, and don't forget to use the Silver Card. * Arena is a good chance to LvUp your army as well. However, don't overuse it. You can win or loose quickly. Check it yourself. You can view my tips about the arena at the [UHT] section. * "Quality over quantity". If your chars are strong, you can use this strategy: "Use the few against the many"! * In the battle: - DON'T UNDERRATE YOUR ENEMY! - Check enemy movement carefully. Check and heal your HP frequently! - After ending your turn, just switch to Mini Map mode. - Use the weapon with HIGH ACCURACY and LIGHT WEIGHT. Also, remember the "Weapon Triangles" formula hence. o----------------------------o | Sword strong against Axe | | Axe strong against Spear | | Spear strong against Sword | o----------------------------o - Use all profitable elements (terrain, support, special effects...) to make the battle become easier. - If you want the stats of char increase better, let enemy atk him/her first. HOWEVER, BE CAREFUL WITH THIS STRATEGY, AND DON'T OVERUSE IT! - Try to get all valuable items from enemies. "Give them nothing, but take from them everything!" (The 300 Movie) - What else? Let's begin. ############################################################################## <<< VI. WALKTHROUGH >>> [WTR] ############################################################################## * GENERAL LEGENDS * - Ar: Armory. - Ve: Vendor. - An: Arena. - G : Your team. - B : Location of the boss. ============================================================================== --- Chapter 1: Marth Embarks --- [C01] ============================================================================== |~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~| | | | B Ar | | G 1 | | 2 | | | |~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~| MISSION ~~~~~~~~ Seize the castle.

However, sacrifice your team in order to exchange one archer, I think it's ridiculous. I myself didn't try this method. --------- 2] Items: --------- - (1): 10000g * Spoils: Vulnerary NOTE: Spoil means "valuables taken by violence (especially in war)". ------------ 3] Strategy: ------------ In this chapter, you should use other chars weaken enemy; let Marth and Caeda finish them.

Go to the Arena to train your team and gain money. - After finishing your task, seize the castle to the next chapter. You will also receive a Silver Sword. ------------- 4] The Arena: ------------- This is a good chance to train your team. Here are my tips: - Look at the arena tips again. - Train your favourite chars. Mine are Marth, Caeda, Barst, Bord, Ogma, Navarre, Darros.

UNLOCKABLES, HINTS AND TIPS >>> [UHT] ############################################################################## =-=-=-=-=-=-= * NEW MODES * =-=-=-=-=-=-= Complete the game once. Go to the Extras menu. Event Recap and Sound Room are now availble. -----o-o---< >---o-o----- =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= * THE ARENA TIPS * =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= - All weapons that you equip for the character will become E rank weapons! However, the WHP of wpns won't be reduced. - If the char can use 2 types of weapon, the weapon in the arena is the one which higher WLV. For example, Minerva can use axes (A) and spears (D). Therefore, her weapon in the arena is axe, even when she is equipped with a spear! - Don't fight continuosly, just one-by-one! - Tap B quickly when you're about losing! - Fully recover HP before joining the next battle. - Try not to fight with SwordMasters, Berserkers and Sages; unless your chars are really strong. - Don't accept the challenging with more than 700g (normal classes) and 1000g (promoted classes). However, it's just a relativity, because challengings with high price sometimes are easier than low price ones. It's depend on your LUCK, not character's Luck; remember this. BUT, REMEMBER THIS IMPORTANT THING: YOUR SYSTEM IS NDS, SO YOU CAN'T HAVE ENOUGH TIME TO TRAIN THE WHOLE OF YOUR TEAM BECAUSE OF THE BATTERY! Theorically, you can play while charging; however, it will reduce the life of the battery. Therefore, to deal with this problem, I have some tips as follows: In Chapter 4 ~~~~~~~~~~~~ - Prepare carefully in the BP menu. Buy 10-20 Heal staves for Lena. - Save, turn off your NDS and fully charging it (2.5 - 3 hours). * NOW YOU HAVE APPROXIMATELY 5-6 HOURS * - Set the brightness of NDS to the low level. - Play the game. You'll spend about 10-15 minutes to clear this chapter. Afterward, go to the arena. - When the indicator light of NDS turn red (1st time), play about 15 minutes more, then save your progress by using the Map Save Point. Turn off NDS and charge it. * NOW YOU HAVE APPROXIMATELY 5-6 HOURS MORE * - When the NDS is fully charged, play the game again until the red indicator light appear (2nd time). Use the last Save Point charge your NDS again. * NOW YOU HAVE APPROXIMATELY 5-6 HOURS, AND THIS IS THE LAST TIME * - Continue your progress. When the indicator light turn red (3rd time), seize the castle to complete your mission. So, you'll have approximately 15-18 hours. Maybe enough for the training. You can use these tips for more chapters which have the arena later. Some other ways I know are: using a high capacity extra battery; or use the RealTime Save function of SC cards. I have no idea of using emulators or cheatcodes. -----o-o---< >---o-o----- =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= * TRIANGLE ATTACK * =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Surround the enemy with 2 chars, and let the last char atk!
