    In the real world or in FE world? In real world was how a roman emperor was known, so I suppose it sorta fits the other master lord (?) classes names.
    It was also used to name the Operation Barbarossa, the famous operation in witch the Nazis invaded the URSS, which is to this day the biggest military operation ever, so it kinda also fits Claude "schemes"... although this one turned into the biggest military failure ever, so maybe not?

    Quick question if anyone could help us out regarding the "best" house run order. So I've started with the BE and a few months have went by, but today I saw on twitter that perhaps the BL seem to be the recommended starting house? Then the consensus alternates between GD next or BE, also there's 2 routes within the BE which is something I didn't know about.

    Apologies if this a daft question and I'm being overly pernickety, but I'd like the to have the most effective playthrough cos I don't have a lot of time for games these days and need to try and get the most out of them that I can sometimes.

    I haven't gone through them all, but now that I know the story I think the best order would be BL -> BE -> GD -> Church.
    But that's assuming you'll go through all of them. If you don't have a lot of time for games then you probably won't do 4 runs - or at least not so close to each other that you'll still have the story details fresh in your mind -, so it's better to just pick whatever house you felt like you liked the most.

    I'm assuming by Church you're referring to the other branching path for the BE? Yeah if I do ever get round to doing all 4 playthroughs, they'll be quite spread out so I probably will be fine with whatever I go for, but so far that order you've mentioned is the one I'll be doing, thanks.

    In the interest of time, you may want to do the BE route last since you can just save your game before the break in the route and not have to do the first half of the game for a fourth time.

    Blue Lions is the only house I haven't done and that's simply because it has the least number of characters I truly like. I am very curious to see what the deal is with Dimitri/Dedue because the other routes did them absolutely no favors in terms of likability.

    The main issue with Black Eagles is how short that route is. It feels like they got lazy or ran out of time and just rushed the post-skip story and then additionally cut out like 25% off the end. Events that span multiple chapters in Golden Deer are summarized in a single sentence of ending narration. It's annoying. But in that sense I'm glad I experienced it first, before I knew that this specific route was getting shafted.

    Yeah that's what I was planning to do, by that point going through the beginning stretch would probably be an absolute chore.

    I'm entering scary levels of obsessing with this game so far, because I'm currently considering finishing my BL run (my second run so far), then doing Golden Deer, then doing BE->CF as a male Dark Mage. Doing all this while I teach every character every skill possible.

    Hidden:
    Because I have a feeling future DLC will introduce entirely new paths, and those paths may be even harder.

    I have finally finished church, and I think it was a terrible mistake to play it RIGHT after golden deer.
    Spoiler:
    It is nearly the EXACT same route with the same order of events -> judith at the valley of torment, the bridge, fort merceus, fighting edelgard, the dubstep city, the ONLY real difference is that grounder field is completely skipped. but this has the consequence of making dimitri and claude just fuck off from the story with little fanfare. Hell at least dimitri APPEARS in a dream sequence, claude just vanishes completely.

    But for golden deer the route was tailored more to Claude's ambitions and his desire to figure out the truth of the world, something the player could go along with. Church route gives the formal explanation of what Rhea did regarding Byleth, but you KINDA can infer/piece together most of it from the other routes.

    If anything I have more appreciation for CF for being much different, length aside.


    Anyyways all the routes are done, and I feel like taking a break from the game until the next major wave of DLC. If the leaks are true, we've got a lot of interesting things in store.

    They're more manageable once you overwhelm them with gambits and break all their barriers.

    Yeah monster fights are relatively simple so long as you're only dealing with one at a time. Even multiple at a time can still be manageable because most super moves are capable of damaging barriers
    1) gambits can fracture multiple barriers if positioned correctly
    2) some (not all; I think the ones that are right next to the enemy are definite) combat arts are capable of breaking the adjacent barrier
    3) certain combat arts straight up are monster specific

    There's a lot of options to easily whittle down monster health, and they shouldn't really pose too much of a problem other than just luring them so you aggro only one at a time. Monster engagements are almost certainly designed to push unit capabilities seeing as they've put all these new options for super moves in the game.

    So Maddening mode is freaking nightmare, huh? I can't get past Chapter 2's thief fight...

    I feel like I need to just wait the groups of three enemies out, but I keep screwing up.

    EDIT: You ever heard that concept of 'If you're having a hard time with something on a video game, bitch about it on the Internet and then it will fix itself'? Yeah, I'm fine now. I'm at Chapter 8 now.

    After 1 year and 3 months, finally managed to +10 (merge and dragonflowers) Legault in Heroes. Not that I was rushing it, but still was happy when it was completed.
    That's all.
