Right, that doesn't sound too bad.
Just one more question: I don't tend to replay games- is this one of those were I'd be missing out if I didn't do a playthrough with every class, or can I sort of experience everything in one playthrough?

I'm fine if it's substantially different, but if it's just doing the same thing with a different set of characters/story, then chances are I won't touch it.

Like, I got put off FF Type 0 when I realised I had to basically get to NG+3 to actually see the story through.
Playing BL after finishing BE-E, first half is similar in story structure and maps, but you generally get different cutscenes/reactions/etc. as you have an entirely new cast. Afaik, second half is substantially different depending on the route. Different story and some different maps but shared maps usually have different enemy placements which make it feel new. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong for anyone who's played more

Fire Emblem games are generally some of the best to replay as taking new units with different roles gives even the same maps a different experience so even in the first half it doesn't feel as remotely as redundant as something like replaying a normal RPG.

i am so addicted to this game.

i was thinking about waiting until lunatic mode comes out to do the Golden Deer route once I finish Blue LIons, but I don't think I can wait.

You're playing BE right now, i got that right? Either Dorothea or Flayn then ... depending on your route of course.

You encounter the Death Knight three times before the timeskip, I believe.
I'm on my second playthrough, and in the first encounter with him I didn't even try because I had no thief, and it wouldn't be viable to defeat him. On the second encounter, I looked into defeating him, still wasn't viable, but I did had a thief. Unfortunately my thief's speed wasn't high enough to steal it :( I wanted to upgrade Hubert the Goobert to a Dark Mage.

I think I beat him on the third encounter in my first playthrough, so I imagine I could probably do the same here.

I went Flayn last time.
And Dorothea sounds so obvious, like everyone must pick her for this. Puffin don't roll that way.
Dorothea was happy with Ferdinand in my BE run. Bernie is the only Black Eagle for me.

EDIT: Ah, you're talking about dancers, not romance. Shows what I get for reading threads before morning coffee. :P

We owe it to Gatekeeper to name our next OT after him.

(But Romance of the Three Houses is really good too.)

Bernie being a Dancer would give you a reason to up her Faith, which would give you access to the only not-Flayn Rescue in the game...

I think Hubert leaves on the church route with Edelguard, plus I already have 2 dark seals for him anyway.
And bernie would just be cruel.
Ah, the church route?

Well, Bernie as a dancer would be hilarious on one hand, and she's the easiest to replace with Shamir on the other. ^^

Outside of her ... Caspar? Recruit Raphael for War Master and let the little guy dance for the big one.

Yeah that last bit is crazy

Just some huge confusing lore dump and I struggled keeping up, really wish Rhea wasn’t just MIA until the last minute.

In general people like their first House the most in terms of characters and story. Im playing BE-E after GD and while I like it, its not GD
Everyone seems to love their first one the most. I'm doing GD for my second, and so far I still think I liked BE E route better, but we'll see, just getting started on Part 2 now.

Is there a secret ending, or path once you finish the 3 houses? no spoilers plz

Finished two more paralogues last night (Annette's and Mercedes').

Gotta say, I really do not enjoy the pacing in the second half. There really isn't much to do in Explore sessions now that every character is either recruited (or Leonie) aside from grinding Solo Seminars. I don't know why they kept the Persona format for the second half but it just feels empty and the Monastery isn't set up very well for intuitive exploration.

No, however BE splits in 2 paths. BE-C and BE-E. In particular Be-E is misseable, you have to unlock it mid playthrough but there are no requirements of having played other routes. its also easy to unlock to the point that people unlock it without realizing

GD is the dumb hype route and it ain't ending here.

I'm having a lot of bad luck recently. So many low percentage hits are hitting. I'm not dying but it's annoying when you get hit at 20% every time. At this point, I expect it to hit.
