Fire Emblem: Three Houses |OT2| Byleth's Lost And Found
I was thinking the same thing this entire time. The whole second half of the route comes off as reactionary to be honest.I really enjoyed Claude's politics and ambitions, but the game is not very clear on how he is actually going to achieve these goals. He comes off as a bit of a reactionary, where he basically needs someone to start a war so he can come in, save the day, and restore order.
I’ve been playing Golden Deer on normal so I’ve being grinding support ranks a bit. I’m on chapter 12 with 62 hours so far lol.
It's funny because the game actually calls him out on thisI was thinking the same thing this entire time. The whole second half of the route comes off as reactionary to be honest.
Just feels like he got lucky that Edelgard started a war so he could swoop in an unite Fodlan like that because there was no way it was happening otherwise. I feel like Claude is a guy with big ideas but never enough on how to actually carry these ideas out.
Try to position a high res unit with 1-2 range (most likely your own mage) In a spot where only enemy mages can attack you from. That'll bait out the mages and likely weaken them enough for your physical tanks to come in and one shot them, leaving them in full health to take on the oncoming wave of physical attackers.I don't understand how to deal with mages at the beginning of the game. There's no safe way to attack them, and they always seem to be able to take out 2/3 of my HP. Even if I take one out, the surrounding soldiers can finish me off.
Starting to regret classic mode.
Master Tactician y’allIt's funny because the game actually calls him out on thiswhen whatsherface is taken aback and asks him if his plan once they get in the fortress is literally "rely on Byleth", which it is. He was able to scheme his way into the fort by relying on Hilda, but had no actual plan for taking on the Death Knight.
It gets better, and the payoff is pretty good. Stick with it!
Me towards the end of BL, after I finished GD: "God I'm so burnt out after doing 2 routes, maybe I should..."
I did Crimson Flower in 60 hours, and it didn't feel like I was going particularly slowly. I never replayed maps or anything. just wandered around the monastery during every explore period, did some sightseeing, watched basically every combat animation. the game has a nice atmosphereFinished the BE E game in 44hrs. Didn't really feel like I rushed all that much. I really don't know how people are getting their playthroughs to be 60-80hrs.
Still pretty confused on the ending though. Who was the mother? Crests are literally embedded into people? Was Byleth some sorta experiment? Gotta say I loved the little ending stories based on who lived and loved.

I ended up going with the church route. Everyone got on my case because they said Edelgard was in the right by wanting to rid the world of inequality caused by houses and crests, and that Rhea was an evil overlord. But at the end of my route, both Edelgard and Rhea were dead, the cult was destroyed, Petra instated a new leader to Brigid, I took over everything and established an era of lasting peace, Seteth overhauled the church curriculum to teach tolerance and equality, and Hanneman got rid of Crest inequality, and I didn't even have to partner with a cult and stage a coup that claimed thousands of lives, Edelgard.
One of my biggest beefs with a series so obsessed with "permadeath" is how the writers decide who actually lives and dies "in the story" no matter who falls on the battlefield or not.
On casual? Well they miss out on EXp from the rest of the fights they might have gotten into. Other than that? Nothing.
All of the real monsters are in Golden Deer, unless you get RNG screwed at level up. Even then, they still have great abilities to compensate.
Dorothea and don't recruit Ferdinand. There's a line in the game that's just really damn good that comes from that combination.
Blame Nintendo or God.
Yeah, it was shown in the E3 trailer. Would've been an awesome surprise but to be honest had they not shown it, I don't think the game would've gotten the same turnaround in prerelease reception as it did.Was the time skip shown during trailers or something? I barely watched any of this game before release.
It kinda sucks how openly it's talked about because it would have been an awesome "oh shit!" moment if you didn't know about it, especially for BL and Dimitri.
