The Fight for Fhirdiad Strategy Guide

No Class Changes For Your Units

You will fight non-stop after you start Combat at Tailtean Plains, meaning you cannot get new certifications after starting the battle. Finish all your Certifications before starting Combat at Tailtean Plains.

You Don't Need To Fight Everyone

You win by defeating the The Immaculate One. Unless you're after Chests and items, you can take the shortest route to victory. Do remember that enemy characters would start moving as you get close to Rhea.

Example: Shortest Path To Rhea

A frontal breakthrough route. Note that Cyril has high damage and movement, so lure him out with someone on a Stronghold tile and swarm him.

Winged Enemy Reinforcements Arrive

4 enemy winged reinforcements will arrive once mid battle. They have high mobility and could wreck your weaker units, but can be easily dispatched with Bows.

Winged Units Can Move More Freely

Due to the many penalizing floor tiles and the lack of Bow wielding enemies, flying units have a easier time on this map.

Cavalry Units Have A Hard Time Moving

Cavalry units get penalty from many of the tiles here and isn't as nimble in many cases. Consider dismounting if needed.

Golems Gets Powerful Each time Rhea Howls

Golem Barriers Block Magic Attacks

Golem is immune to magic & Critical attacks when its Barrier is up. Have your fighters break their barriers before you send in the mages.

How To Beat The Immaculate One

The Immaculate One will not initiate combat until you strike. Finish off the mobs around it before initiating the final combat.

Break Barriers With Gambits And Hard-Hitting Attacks

The Immaculate One has a even tougher Barrier that should be dealt with first. Gambits will break them surely, so don't spend them all on Golems.

The Immaculate One Barrier Effects:

  • -70% Damage
  • Immune to critical hits
  • Grants Avo +30 vs sword, lance, axe

Burn It Down Before It Uses Wrath

Wrath ability gives The Immaculate One a high critical chance when counterattacking. This will limit your offence options, so burn it down quickly once it has no HP bars left.

The Immaculate One Latent Abilities:
