Chapter 5: Exalt and the King Guide

Important chapter-5-fire-emblem-awakening-mapUnlocks:

  • Character Unlock: Mirabelle joins your squad at the start of the mission.
  • Character Unlock: Ricken joins your squad at the start of the mission.

This chapter is very tough to come out unscathed. Mirabelle and Ricken will join at the begin of the level and spawn in on the top of the map. However, all of your characters are on the bottom right of the map. You will need some quick units to book it over to Mirabelle and Ricken if you want to keep them alive.

Take your quick units north and keep a heavy hitter down on the bottom of the map to take out the enemies to the bottom left of the map. Try to work Mirabelle and Ricken down away from the enemies as much as you can. The first thing i did was pair Ricken with Mirabelle. She has a long range of movement and she can get them out of the way quickly. Now move Mirabelle strait down and you will be out of the way of fire for a moment. Hit the surrounding enemies with your fast moving backup.

Once you can secure your new recruits, high tail it back to where you spawned and start setting up some defenses. Set one of your strongest units in the thin mountain path. This will funnel enemies into an area where you can control the battlefield. Reinforcements will show up in between the turns. Make sure to heal up before you move forward but get characters on these spawn points. Put weaker characters on these spawn points to block more characters showing up.

Keep moving up slowly. I like to use the paths that are only one tile wide to draw in enemies. Using Kellam to block the path with Frederick behind him is an unstoppable force. Juggle them in and out and heal them up when necessary. Be careful though. The boss will fly down as soon as you get to the second square in the second single mountain path area. Take out the rest of the enemies and you will complete Chapter 5 with some new powerful allies.
