Act 4: Land of Sorrow





The Fear Mountain Shrine (Japanese: 恐山のほこら Fear Mountain Shrine) is a temple and dungeon located in Rigel's Fear Mountain range. It appears in Fire Emblem Gaiden and is first accessed during Act 4: Land of Sorrow.


As with Gaiden in general, there is little explicit clarification on the exact purpose of the Fear Mountain Shrine. It is possibly related to the worship of Duma in some way, as it is crawling with cantors, arcanists, witches, and monsters. However, the presence of two Mila Shrine within the temple may imply otherwise.

This dungeon can only be accessed with Alm's party. There are several items to be found in its depths as well as a fair amount of battles. This dungeon is optional but highly recommended for experience from its repeatable skirmishes and the fair amount of equipment within.
