This section details unofficial strategies that may help with completion of the chapter. This may not work for everybody.

This is a fairly easy chapter as long as you've either trained Roy or given him stat boosters. If the player desires to get the true ending, Roy must deal the final blow to Idunn with the Binding Blade. Idunn isn't a particularly scary boss and she is locked to 1 range meaning you can attack her from range without any consequence. Keep in mind the the Binding Blade and the Divinestone are the only weapons that are effective against her (wyrmslayers and legendary weapons don't deal x3 damage). There are infinite reinforcements, but they aren't too strong and can be dealt with fairly easily. If Roy isn't strong enough deal with Idunn, it's best to use other units to weaken her and finish her off with Roy.
