Karla The Swordmaster
Karla is a Lv. 5 swordmaster that you can only get in Hector's campaign. In the chapter Crazed Beast, send Guy to the village to the south of the Bishop. Karla is in the village. She is Karel's brother, and you don't have Karel yet. In chapter 30x, have Bartre as a Lv. 5 or above warrior. Send him to the arena, and, if neither of them die, she joins your party. Give Bartre an Iron Rune, because Karla has a Wo Dao, and will get a critical otherwise.
Third Ocean Seal
The first two Ocean seals I had no idea existed, but in level 30, Victory or Death, there is a secret shop behind Limstella. It is surrounded by thickets, so you have to use Heath or another flier to get it, but make sure they have a delphi shield (lv. 26), because there's a manned ballista. Take him out, or you are DOOMED. The shop has Earth seals, ($20,000? ) Fell contracts, ($40,000), Ocean seals, ($50,000) and an assortment of staves. Get a Silver card and you won't have any trouble.
After completing the final chapter, go to extras
and click map. Choose a finished game. Complete
the Tower of Valni, Lagdou Ruins, or monster
skirmishes to earn secret characters. Those
characters are Glen, Selena, Valter, Riev,
Caellach, Fado, Ismaire, Hayden, Orson, and
Lyon. They are all very powerful and carry
strong weapons. THey can be leveled up easily by
fighting strong enemy units.
Ocean Seals are probably the least known and
hardest to find seals in the whole game. They
turn pirates into Berserkers. There are only 2
ways to get an Ocean Seal. There's one floating
around somewhere in the sand in Nabata. This
one's pretty hard to find but it's free. The
other is in a secret shop. This secret shop is
in chapter 23 but only when you're fighting
Linus. To open this chapter you must have 2
lords at level 20 and one at at least level 10.
Then you have to have the member card which can
be obtained in chapter 20. The secret shop is in
the woods on the farthest east island on the
map. To buy an Ocean Seal costs 50000 gold.
Fortunately there's an arena in the town so you
can get money there to buy the seal.
Get Vaida's Super Spear
In mission 24, when you must fight Vaida who is
powered by Nergal, if you use the mine cheat, you
can control her. Move her down to the shaman and
trade her spear to him for the luna. Then kill
that shaman to get Vaida's supercharged spear. If
you give this spear to any unit they will get the
power bonus Vaida was getting from Nergal.
Control Enemy Units
To control all enemy units that have not moved
yet, move a weak character by someone who will
attack them. Then lay a mine so that the enemy
has to step on it to attack. Once the enemy steps
on the mine and gets damaged, reset the game and
choose resume chapter. All of the enemies that
have not moved are now under your control. Even
the bosses. Only reinforcements that come later
will be free from your control, so you basically
win the level easy.
Kill The Dragon
The dragon that you fight in the end has 120 HP
and does a good amount of damage to anyone. The
easiest way to kill it is to use eclipse. If it
hits its health will fall to 60 making your job
much easier. Otherwise keep using Hector's Armads
and healing him if he gets injured. Once the
dragon's health is low enough, use Eliwood kill
him with Durandal.
In The final chapter after you kill all of the
other units, you will have to fight Nergal. You
can kill him easy if you use Athos' Aureola and
Hector's Armads. You will probably need a physic
staff to heal your units if they get hurt
At the beginning of all chapters, there is a
scene explaining what the chapter is about. If
you've already seen it or don't care, press
START to skip it. You can also do this with any
scene or to make someone stop talking.
Beat Level 27 Boss Easy
In level 27 the boss will either be Lloyd a
Swordmaster or Linus a Hero. Both have an item
that blocks criticals, and they do a lot of
damage and rarely miss. But, if you've been using
Pent and he is above level 10 and has an Elfire,
then send him up to the boss alone. Make sure
that no one else can get attacked by the boss,
because they will probably die. Then have Pent
attack the boss, he will have a 85%+ hit rate,
and do 10+ damage. But the boss will have about a
40% hit rate and do almost no damage and no
critical. Just drain his health with Pent and
have someone else kill him if you want exp.
Pegasus Triangle Attack
This is a special attack that can only be
preformed in Hector's route. To do it you need
the pegasus knight sisters: Florina, Fiora and
Farina to surround one enemy. Then have one of
them attack the enemy. The attack has a special
animation sequence with 100% hit rate and 100%
critical every time you use it.
Items In Hiding
I bet that most of you didnt have patience enuff
to look for hidden secrets throughout the game.
One secret for instances would be the many hidden
items in chapter 22> the Living Legend. There are
seven hidden items floating around in the sand
which include: A Luna, an Ocean Seal, a body
ring, Filla's Might, an Eclipse, a Light Rune,
and a Hero Crest. To collect these items, just
wait on a spot for an item for one turn, if an
item is there, it will alert you. Matthew will
have to dig them up.
In the desert in chapter 22, a berserker will
appear after a few turns or so. He will start
attacking your enemies along with Pent (you can't
get him yet). Have one of people (I suggest
Eliwood)talk to him and he will join you. It is a
pretty good idea to recruit him because he is so
Easy Level Ups
During the game, have your weaker charaters beat
the boss of the chapter and they will level up 1
level. You might want your lords to this, so at
level 20 you can up-grade them to there new form.
Eliwood The Knightlord
Hope you used the first two heaven's seals on Lyn
and Hector because at the end of chapter 27,
Athos will only upgrade Eliwood using the last
heaven's seal regardless of his level. Once
becoming a knightlord, Eliwood will be able to
Pent And Louise
In the beginning of chapter 24, Pent and Louise
join you. Be careful. If you lose Pent, you will
lose Louise too. It is the same thing for Louise.
There are 2 chapters in the game when the map will look different, Ch. 23 and Ch. 25. These maps will change to give you different characters. In Ch. 23 you could get either Wallace or Dart's friend Gietz. In Ch. 25 you could get either Karel or Harken. While getting Harken or Karel doesn't matter on the map, getting Gietz or Wallace does. The objective must be to defeat Lloyd to get Wallace, or defeat Linus to get Gietz.
In chapter 21, after the first or 2 turns pass,
rath and 2 of his men will arive and assist you.
Simply have Lyn talk to Rath and he will join
your team. Make sure you get to him before he is
killed, if not you can't get him for the rest of
In Chapter 22, Wallace will be roaming around
defeating black fang. Just have Lyn go up to him
and talk then he'll join your team. Wallace is a
General so it would be a good idea to get him
because of his high defensive power.
The Sound Room
After competeing a majority of the game, you'll
get the "Sound Room" under extras. In here you'll
be able to listen to songs you unlocked and the
pictures you've unlocked during your adventure.
Karel Of The Plains
In chapter 26, some things change for some reason.
Like the map andthe boss you fight. If you fight
the boss that is a bishop, a NPC will appear (he's
green). Have a lord talk to him. He is a level 8
Talk With Hector
During chapter 7, when you have to save Ninian,
you'll notice a house by the castle Heintz is
guarding. Have Matthew enter it first and he
will engage in a conversation with Lord Hector of
Ostia, however Hector won't join the team
though. Afterward have Serra enter the house to
see a comedic scene. After you've done this,
Hector will say his normal lines.
Hector The Greatlord
After you save the prince in chapter 26, the
Queen will give you the second Heaven seal. If
you used the first one on Hector and it will
upgrade him to a Great Lord. He will be able to
In Hector's story there is a chapter called
Crazed Beast. A few rounds in to the battle a Peg
Knight will appear. Position Hector on the area
of land closest to her at the bottom and wait.
There is no threat from enemies. The enemies
onland won't move unless you are close enough to
attack. The enemy ballista are out of range. The
enemy Peg could fly down if they are still alive
(they usually are'nt) but if Hector is above
level 10 this shouldn't be a problem. When Farina
flies over to talk to Hector you must have 20,000
gold. If you do Hector will ask you if you want
her to join. Say yes because you can get an
Elysian whip from the village. Use it immediately
as Farina is level 14. She will then be a Falco
Knight which can use swords and are extremely
To get the Earth Seal in chapter 24 in the
bottom city you will get the earth seal. The
earth seal will evolve anyone over level 10.
There are only 3 heaven seals in the world. They
can only evolve your lords to a more powreful
state. Pent will have the first one, the queen
will have the second and the third is hidden some
where. The first 2 you could give to Hector or
Lyndis, depending on who you like better, but
Eliwood can only use the last one .
In Chapter 26 Battle Before Dawn you protect
the prince of Bern. You will find Nino and Jaffar
seperated with Ursula in between them. Enter
through both entrences at the area where you
start out and go down to where Jaffar and
Nino are. Bring a lord (preferably your
strongest) to talk to Nino and she will join your
side then have the lord rescue he and bring
her to where you started. Then on the opposite
entrence that leads to Jaffar send 1 or 2
Paladins down. Have one rescue Jaffar and
bring him where Nino will talk with him and he
will join your side when you beat the Chapter.
Then have the other Paladin kill-off the
enemys that Jaffar was fighting.
Get Canas, The Shaman
In chapter 16x, go to the first of the locals in
the middle top. Then you will talk to Canas
because he will want to go on the ship too, so
he will join your group.
When you first encounter her in Chapter 24
Unfulfilled Heart she is super powerful so it is
best to stay out of her way. Then when you
rencounter her in Chaper 27 Cog Of Destiny
keep 2 Snipers down where Merlinis is and a
Lord when the first 3 Wyvern Riders apper she
is the top one. Just talk to her with the lord
and she will join and then kepp killing off the
Wyvern Riders that keep appering with Vaida
and the 2 Snipers.
Crests are things that will evolve a character
usually when they are levels 10 and up. So you
should get items that might be crests and evolve
characters to higher stats. Like a Knight to
Lyn The Bladelord
In the second saga, you will get a heaven's
crest. Use it on Lyn (she must be at least lv.10).
She will then transform into a Bladelord. She can
then use bows.
At 16x, when you are supposed to reach Fargus,
you shouldn't beat Dart, he'll come back in
another chapter, maybe 18, and he will join your
Harken The Hero
In Chapter 25, Harken a hero will enter and he
will be upset about Marquess Pharae's (Eliwood's
father) death. Have Eliwood talk to Harken and
he'll join your army.
Jaffar The Assassin
In Ch. 26, after you get Nino, have one of your
riders (Kent, Sain, Lowen, Marcus, Pricilla) take
her to Jaffar. Before doing this make sure you
had people over help to protect him for his
killing edge wont last long. When you get her
there, have Nino talk to Jaffar. He'll be upset
because she didn't leave, But at the end of the
Chapter he will join Eliwoods team.
In chapter 19, an enemy theif known as Legault
will betray Black Fang. Have Lyn talk to Legault
and he will be persuaded to join your group.
In Chapter 26 you have to defend the prince of
Bern. While doing this, have Lyn, Hector, or
Elimood talk to Nino. After a brief disscussion
she will join the team.
Trinity Of Magic
Like the weapons triangle the trinity of magic lets you have an advantage. Light beats dark, dark beats amine* and amine beats light. *Amine is Wind, Thunder, Fire, Water.
Getting Raven And Lucius
On chapter 16, the one where you regain Lyn's
castle you can get Raven the mercenary and also
have the monk Lucius rejoin your party. To do
this bring Pricilla in the battle. Protect her
until she reaches her long lost brother Raymond
(Raven). Hopefully you do this before the
soliders escape or they might hurt him. Let
Pricilla talk to raven and get him on your team.
Then let Raven talk to Lucius. They are great
characters to add to the team.
Weaken Stronger Bosses
An easy way to defeat strong bosses use indirect
combat before using Lyn or another direct
attack. In level 10 you can also pick up a
steel bow for Wil and Rath. This helps a lot
against final bosses.
Play As Hector As The Main Character
Beat Eliwood's Game and watch the entire ending.
Then, save your game & then you can play as
Early in Eliwood's story, you will have a mission
where you recapture Lyn's castle. A mercenary
named Raven, (pointed out in a cut scene) is in
actuality Priscila's brother. Have her talk to
him to convince him to join your cause.
Return To Game Fast
When you turn off the game and want to return to your game fast. First hold down start, select, A and B. Then let go of B. You will return to the last played game.
In order to get Merlinus, complete the side quest
that comes after Ch. 13, the one where you must
protect Merlinus for seven turns. If you
successfully complete the side quest, you'll get
the option to dispatch Merlinus, a merchant who
will store some of your items when you can't
carry them. Just follow the instructions that
follow after you get merlinus.
After you complete certain chapters, you'll have
the option to go on side quests. There, you'll be
able to gain exp. points, items and new companions.
In Ch. 13, guard Matthew until he reaches a
swordsman called Guy. Let him talk to Guy. Then,
he'll join your side because he owes matthew his
life. He is a good swordsman. Note: If Guy is
killed by one of your men, you can't get him.
Only Matthew is able to get Guy on your side.
The Saga Continues
After Lyn seizes the throne from Lord Lundgren
you will start a new journey with Eliwood.
In the game there is a weapon triangle. The
triangle is axes are stronger than lances, lances
are stronger than swords and swords are stronger
than axes. Using this method will defeat your
opponents quicker and easier.
