Started playing Sacred Stones after 6 and 7. Started hard mode for my first playthrough and I'm getting my shit wrecked. How do I git gud without grinding or using meatshield Seth?

Also, which route should I take first? Ephraim or Eirika?

Gotta use tactics, bro. Seth is good but you gotta let the others grow. Don't be afraid to use the Tower for extra leveling if you need to. It's your first playthrough, not gonna be easy.

Also, Ephraim's route is better. If you want more advice, tell me what chapter you are struggling with.

he's doing it on purpose you retard, stop replying

>>253042524
She's not. Her skill gains are trash.

IIRC Ephraim's route is marginally easier

You shouldn't be using Seth that much. In most playthroughs he rarely sees any combat at all for me.

What chapter are you at? What are your units like? Lvls/exp/etc.

FE6 and 7 were incredibly easy to me but Sacred Stones is actually hard.

SS is objectively the easiest out of all of the GBA games.

If you are having trouble with SS at all then you have severely fucked up somewhere.

Amelia's only problem is that she comes in on the only difficult map in the game(on Eirika route) and that she's difficult to get rolling.

Unlike other units like her, she has plenty of time to get rolling.

with that much effort any character can get stats like that.
On average her stats are only marginally better than other units that require less time, exp and weapons to be leveled up, she isn't even close to being worth the trouble, unless of course you can't help but training the qt 3.14 instead of the manly men.

eirika route has better stuff iirc
also ephraim route has 3 mages with berserker staves holy shit dont do this to yourself.

She, Ross, and Ewan are the only units that get two upgrades. OBJECTIVELY her stats will end up higher nearly across the board. She is more than worth the trouble as arguably the second best unit in the game next to Ross.

Nigga what? Every play through I do, Ross ends up one of my 3 best units and Amelia wrecks shit as well. I've never really used Ewan because of how late he joins, but I'm sure he's got some use as well. Trainees may start as absolute shit, but once they reach their final class (which doesn't take very long) they're monsters.

Are you ACTUALLY telling me that having shitty speed on a Knight/General is acceptable? Gilliam will never double attack EVER. He won't take damage, but he can't dish it nearly as well as Amelia can. They are in entirely different leagues.

The hell is wrong with you people? How can you deny the goddess of war that is Amelia?

I've played through this game several times. Amelia has maxed out almost all of her stats every single time. All of the "recruit" units end up amazing.
>>
>>253044786
You DO understand that the point of knights/generals is not to double attack but to be able to tank shit?
>>
If you beat 6 and 7 you should have no issues with Sacred Stones. Sacred Stones is the easiest. Just grind a little bit so you stop getting butt reamed. Make sure to level up the bby class person with the spear into a knight. That is the greatest late game tank in the game. Stats are beyond broken.

Also do Ephraim. I did Eirika and I highly regret it. She is so dumb.

You see, that's the problem with Ameliafags, as soon as you bring up actual facts they panic! they start saying "muh anecdotal evidence! she turned out fine to me!" completely disregarding growth rates, availability, resources needed, average stats, etc
I mean it's fine if you want to use her, I use her too, but she's OBJECTIVELY, FACTUALLY, LITERALLY inferior to Gilliam

That is the optimal use for a tank but not all maps have areas like that

Of course they're not necessary. But fuck not having them ready for those glorious times you do get a map like that.

She CAN'T tank better with less HP and defense.
Open those eyes son and take a look at their growth rates.
And no, FE8 is not difficult enough for enemy units (that can actually damage) to start doubling Gilliam.
Using generals in ...general is retarded anyway, it's an inferior class.

>Hating on Amelia because her defense is lower than Gilliam, claiming speed doesn't make up for that.

Once Amelia hits General, she has high enough defense to take either trivial or outright zero damage from most enemies anyway.

But more importantly she has the advantage that if an enemy with armour slayer or magic shows up, Amelia still has very high dodge odds. Two effective lines of defense, bro.

Everytime I try to do a run of the game where I don't reset like crazy when one of the character I like dies I always give into temptation and reset anyways.

I always gotta be perfect. Nobody is allowed to die. Ever. Sometimes I do Iron Man runs though. No resets allowed.
>>
>>253048003
depends, I can do no reset runs but I need to prepare myself mentally before I start playing, or else I'll probably end up dropping that run.
No reset runs, when I'm actually able to complete them, are some of the best experiences I've ever had with videogames, they're really fucking intense.
When I'm playing for the first time I usually play the normal way i.e. resetting when someone dies, but in the last few games I've started to play casual runs instead, there's no point in restarting other than playing the same stage over and over.
>>
I like to use all the trainees personally. Amelia goes for speedy Knight->General, Ross goes for pirate->berzerker, and Ewan goes for Dark Mage->Druid with more than 5 defense.

Your other dark mage Knoll, is better as a summoner since he has no luck and no defense and gets rekt and needs the summons to be useful for creating distractions and not immediately dying if he gets too far from your army.

I reset depending on who died and how far I am into the stage.

If I'm pretty much mostly through the stage and the person who died isn't a healer or one of my major damage dealers then they're SOL.

Rolf in FE9 and 10 is a fucking destruction machine. I'd post here a Raiden edit from the old WAIFU WARS BOWS OF THE PATRIOTS threads if I had it.

But yes, Neimi is the only good bow user in 8. Innes is a not-Seth prepromote and thus shit and the others are better off promoting to something that doesn't use bows.
>>
>>253047170
Why?
That's seems like such bad logic. If someone is curious about FE, why would you recommend the shittiest games to start with? That'll just make them think the entire series is equally shit and stop playing. It'd be like a server who recommends the worst items on the menu to every new person who comes there. Like shit people should start with 7,8, or 13 not the awful DS entries

Gerik can promote to Ranger but he's better off going Hero.
Ross is on the coletrain directly to Berserker, this is non negotiable.

AS for units, especially on hard mode, you will want to abuse the tower at least a bit.

My favorite units to use are Gerrik, Joshua and Marrisa, and once you get them around level 13-15 they can take care of themselves

Then you promote them to Hero, Swordmaster and Assassin and wreck shop

Saleh and Duessel are also decent for pre-promotes (save stat boosting items for them)

ALSO, on Ephraims route, you NEED two staff users with restore because your units WILL get hit by enemy Berserk staffs.

Only thing that sucks more than losing a unit is losing it to one of your own.

Grado keep on hard mode is a bitch, but fun as fuck. Best level in the game.

Use all three trainees. If you're going to use a cavalier, Kyle is usually good. Its always a speed/skill vs str/def with cavaliers. Seth is actually a good unit he isn't your typical Jagen. I personally never use Jagens at all.
Ephraim will be your nigga.
Gerik will be your nigga.
Abuse arenas, abuse monsters that show up on the world map.
SS is a mage heavy game so you want Lute, Artur, and L'Arachael.
Ephraim's waifu is incredible as well you want to go the wyvern route when you class change.
Cormag is also an excellent unit.
Neimi is usually hit or miss. If you do use her it all depends on if you want the Sniper skill or the ability to attack at the 1-2 range. Either way she'll be the unit for the Legendary Bow.

If you're having serious trouble with SS you don't have the right units trained, you're not abusing the grinding heavy format they presented in the game, and you're just shit at FE in general.

Good luck! Abuse Serenes Forest.

>or using meatshield Seth?

Why wouldn't you? Just unequip him so he attracts attention, but can't kill.
>>

Ummm no
Gerik can do warrior/hero

>>253052063
Not him, but Gerik can promote to either Hero or Ranger. You are thinking of Garcia.

SD isn't bad. It's just much mroe simplistic than the other games because it's a faithful remake of the first one. Having less mechanics might even be better for someone who's starting with the series.

Only people that will suffer from it's flaws are those already familiarized with the series. Things like unbalanced characters characters are maybe the biggest issue newcomers could have with it.
>>
>>253051091
Isn't her stats beter as a sniper, though? I recall her being similar to Lute in the sense that both had better stats as sage/sniper but having low con, thus benefitting a lot from their mounted promotions so either way they should do fine.
>>
>>253053089
She's easier killed as a sniper, but she also dodges like fucking crazy. Only an idiot would go Ranger on her.. On anyone.
>>
Just play so your favorite unit level up and clean your path with him/her.

Git gud

Nigga wat. He's almost as good as mathew. at least in my playthroughs
>>
I never actually used the super trainee classes. Are they any better than just regular promotions?
>>
>>253057268
Actually did my own research for once and found that average stats for amelia and ewan are generally better, but worse for ross.

Mathew wasn't that good either
Colm is okay as far as thieves go but his only real good stat is speed (which hell max asap). He occasionally will get lucky and max strength and luck will probably be decent but none of his other stats will break 20

This is a great picture.

I never had problems with either, maybe I'm just lucky.
>>
>>253057268
Not really
Trainee Ross has awful stat caps and doesn't get the crit bonus or bows
Amelia also has bad caps and doesn't get any other weapons like every other option has
Ewan is the only acceptable trainee since he gets the entire magic triangle

They're certainly usable simply due to how good speed is but compared to other units like Joshua or Marisa they leave a bit to be desired
>>
>>253059235
Doesn't Amelia get 15% crit bonus as a super trainee? I'm almost sure she does.
>>
>>253058764
What's the quality of that like?
>>
>>253059537
FE4/5 magic animations were pretty crazy.

>>253059815
True dat.
>>253059882
Yes
>>253059235
Checking over ewan's stats. Super trainee ewan vs druid ewan is 1 mag, 1 skl, 15 crit, and light magic vs 3 spd and staffs.
I'm not sure what to think about this.
>>
>>253059815
That's because myrmidons in SS are really good. I don't remember them being all that amazing in other games.

Colm is one of the best thieves I can recall and would probably be more of a match for someone like Guy or Rutger.
>>
>>253044182
Ewan as a summoner is pretty OP
>>
>>253059919
like your average art prints at conventions. Although now I'm supporting the artist and the higher quality res on the prints is nice.
>>
>>253059882
Oops overlooked that, Ross and Amelia both get that.
Ross is still worse due to caps but Amelia improves a bit, actually would be comparable to general caps

I was never sure how summoners worked, I'm going to go check that now.

>>253060613
Summons a shitty blue npc, 1/1 hp, enemies will ALWAYS attack it before your other units. Having two is gamebreaking enough, you can get a third.
>>
>>253060613
They get a skeleton bro that levels up with their summoner. So at high levels you get a completely expendable unit running around with a killer sword or something that can still take a decent amount of enemies.

So it comes down to either 15% critical or great shield and weapons, right?

Since Amelia is already a bruiser as it is, I think she could use that skill better than any other general in the series, even if that skill was present in any game other than SS.

That being said, with critical she'd be a female version of berserker Ross, which is pretty crazy on its own.

I think it's safe to say that there isn't really a way to have a bad Amelia, though. That girl could kick ass even as a nerfed Palladin.

I use super trainees because of their unique animations. It's not like I play this game competitively nor there's a hidden rule that all caps should be maxed.
>>
Is there a way to grind gold?
I'm abusing the tower but all my items are breaking and I don't want to spend all gold. any tips?
>>
All this SS talk has made me want to finally finish it. Time to restart it again.
Also, I see everyone talk about Amelia becoming a General. Are Great Knight/Paladin not very good, or is general just flat out better than them?
>>
>>253066397
Third level of the tower always have 3k gold. One you get it, retreat. Rince n repeat. Use silver card when buying.
>>
>>253067447

Great Knight/Paladin are probably better, honestly. They just don't have the novelty value of being a loli in a giant suit of armor.

Most FE8 characters are gods.

The tradeoff is that the dark magic users fucking suck.
