It's about 1GB.

Gah. Chapter 18 was a cake-walk (the one in the volcano) I've already been delaying some class promotions and have been trying to incorporate some of the lower level characters but my party is just too OP. Maybe it's all the pairing up. I love this mechanic, but it does feel like cheating at times. I'll definitely need to replay this on hard mode at some point.Meinhard1

You are not on hard mode?  Oh boy get ready for a rise in difficulty.

#103 Posted by darkspineslayer (19531 posts) -
Ok, started hard mode. Honestly, I've got previous experience with Fire Emblem, but this is just getting ridiculous. Why can't I take more than a single hit at most form a goddamn risen? Anyone have some tips? I seriously doubt I'll ever get to lunatic.

Yeah it is annoying but you pretty much have to have them come to you then you attack them set to kill.  In Lunatic you WILL die from a single unit since everyone is fast and attacks twice.

You try to go more defensive?

Hmm. I played on hard/classic and I noticed that everytime I had to choose between an offensive or a defensive strategy, offence worked out better.

I DID IT! I FINALLY FOUND A COPY! THIS 2 WEEK ORDEAL IS FINALLY OVER!! :D :D

And it was the last copy available in a 5 mile radius. Poor guy behind me left the store disappointed. My prayers goes to those still trying to find the game. Good luck!

Lucky! Still none in sight here in Calgary; sucks considering we have a week off from school this week. :|

Was there actually some guy behind you trying to get it? I would've been so depressed and completely outraged at the same time if that was me. :P

#109 Posted by Tu2lauj (35 posts) -

Damn im surprised people still can't find this game in retail stores....maybe i should go to my local target/walmart and buy multiple copies and sell it on ebay... :/

If I didn't run to the store, I would have been the one depressed and outraged. He entered around 2 minutes after I did. :P

Good luck finding a copy! The search is intense. May Arceus be with you.

#111 Posted by moltenix (2485 posts) -

The worst part is that the game was supposedly being sold early by some EB Games in Canada. Argh! I should've grabbed one while I had the chance.

I got mine launch day at Marlbrough. If I didn't have a preorder I wouldn't have got it. Good luck on your search.

It's 3am and I have to wake up in 3 hours, but I'm too absorbed into this game to care about sleep. :P [spoiler] EMMERYN, WHY?! :cry: [/spoiler]

Yeah, hard/classic is whooping me pretty good. I keep letting my guard down near the end of battle and forgetting to put Lissa out of harms way and having to redo the whole level. I kind of wish it was setup like Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars where you could chose difficulty for each battle... but then it would no longer be Fire Emblem. Probably, I should just admit I suck and restart on normal. I've put like eight or ten hours into it according to my 3DS log but only have like three hours on my save since I have to figure out each level though trial and error.

The newly released "EXPonential growth" map is honestly, gamebreaking. I need to limit myself...
#118 Posted by Lebowski__basic (1252 posts) -
Finally got my hands on a physical copy! My GameStop only got 3 in and I got the last copy. Looks like Black 2 will be retired for a while.

Same, brah, Black 2 can wait, but Fire Emblem will not. :)

I just found a physical copy at my local gamestop! Can't wait to start playing it tonight after work.

I didn't start abusing the dlc until I beat the game but I'm on my 2nd playthrough now, so **** it, I'm getting everyone capped asap.

I was planning to do it the same way. I just want to know what class gets that skill "counter."

I just bought the Golden Pack. Getting close to chapter 12, so I figured I'd need the gold to purchase master seals. I've been lucky enough to convert 3 characters so far by chapter 9.

yokofox33

Isn't it better to leave the master seals for later and reclass everyone you possibly can?

I don't know. I've never played Fire Emblem before. Can you go back to your old class after reclassing a character?

#126 Posted by ANIMEguy10034 (4699 posts) -

It's best to reclass characters when they learn the skills you want (Lv10/15). And yes, you can go back to the previous class once you reach Lv10.

ANIMEguy10034

Ok, thanks. I reclassed some of my master classed people, and have mapped out who I want where for Master classes. I may have backtracked a little, but I don't mind grinding a bit to get where I need to be. The DLC maps will help me afford all those seals :lol:

#128 Posted by Meinhard1 (6768 posts) -
I was hoping the DLC would be extra-hard endgame type stuff, geared towards high level and maxed out units. Disappointingly, going by what I've seen so far it seems to be pretty low level and easy.

Oh don't worry. That will come, at least assuming all the Japanese content makes it over.
#130 Posted by Pixel-Perfect (5778 posts) -


I'm hating the DLC so far. :X

And it used to be that it would be stupid to class change before you were done leveing, but now it really doesn't matter.

It does not matter anymore?  Why not?  I have been going all the way to level 20 for everyone, then promote, then class chance after that unless somebody works out better to change class first but not many do.

Class changing is unlimited and level ups carry over... so you can just class change until you max all the stats. So yeah, no pressure. You only need to make it to level 15 for advanced classes and 10 for basic classes to learn their abilities.

I have not played Fire Emblem since Sacred Stones (Shadow Dragon bored me at the start) so I did not remember the caps.  I will say the difficulty makes it not matter.  The enemy numbers and reinforcements are ridiculous and I recently found out that "Take out the Commander" means kill the Commander as fast as you can, routing the enemy is very hard in those maps.

So I have almost all the child characters ... why does my avatar still have all these blank supports for unknown characters?

I can see myself doing lots and lots of playthroughs, after I finish with hard, I'm going with lunatic.

All of the game shops where I live got more copies sometime last week. The game was completely sold out before then.
#139 Posted by moltenix (2485 posts) -

There hasn't been ANY copies here since launch! :evil:

Dammit Nintendo, if you don't ship more copies soon, i'll be playing Monster Hunter and Luigi's Mansion before this! I would very much prefer a physical copy so i'll pass on the eShop version... for now. :|

I'm like a month late here, but I only just passed Chapter 12 and I'm about to hit my 50 hour mark.

sawit on bestbuy and walmart(not amazon though) so Im assuming Nintendo is printing more copies. but I have to import the game from playasia so it looks like I have to wait a few more weeks

#143 Posted by moltenix (2485 posts) -

OMG! My local EB Games actually got a VERY LIMITED supply of Fire Emblem in this morning!!! :D:D

I think he said that there were only 5 copies that came in and I got the second last one. All of the other locations I checked didn't get any. Dammit Nintendo, you release a super awesome game but then don't ship out any copies...

So far so good.

If this is indicative of what's to come on 3DS, i'm excited! :D

#146 Posted by moltenix (2485 posts) -

Damn, only just started and i'm already being introduced to so many characters. Already attached to some of them.

I notice they only gain exp if they engage in battle. Is it better to give everyone a chance or focus on a few?

You'll probably end up with a core group, but it's best to be as diverse as possible. You don't want to just be stuck with a handful of paladins against an army of mages.

My local Gamestop got only 2 copies in today. First FE shipment they get since launch which is surprising since its in a pretty big mall here in LA. Of course, I didn't get either one. I wasn't waiting outside the store an hour before opening. :x

have you try buying the game online from either bestbuy or walmart? they have it in stock.

#150 Posted by Meinhard1 (6768 posts) -
I just noticed that Radiant Dawn had third tier classes ... do you think those added anything to the game? Or did they just prolong the leveling process? This game obviously chose to forgo them in favor of a more detailed class/reclass/skills system.
