Strategy

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

The first issue in this map is the Thieves pilfering Marth's family vault and running off with your loot. Send your cavalry to intercept them and kill them. Note the Manakete in the central hallway; there's no real reason to engage him if you don't want to since he isn't in the way or anything. If you really want him dead, lure him in with a very strong tank like Wolf or Sedgar, then pound him with magic. Once you've picked off the Thieves and the goons in the treasure room, you can clean the place out. There's a second Manakete in the northwest corner; he's positioned very badly and is rather dumb, and you can waste him from complete safety two spaces to the south of him. You should also send someone to kill the two Bishops on the east side and claim their Fortify and VIP Card. The latter lets you into the very valuable secret shops, so make sure to give it to someone (and yes, it stacks with the Silver Card). Once the area outside the throne room is cleared out, you can hit a save point.

Now for the throne room. If you brought a Ballistician or two, you can pick off the Mage and Bishop with ease, then run down the Knights. Otherwise, a promoted cavalry charge is probably your best bet. Once you enter the throne room, several waves of enemy Cavaliers and Knights appear on the right side of the throne room, circle around the throne, and engage you. Park a tank on a chokepoint and wipe them out one to two at a time. Beware the spot three spots to the left of where that Sniper started off; if you stand there, Knights can hit you with their Javelins. Once this group is dead, you can head to the alcove north of the throne and hit up your first secret shop. This shop has all four Killer weapons, as well as some rare specialty weapons; notably, this is the only place you can get Poleaxes and Longbows unless you plan on going to the gaiden chapters. Poleaxes are an especially good purchase considering the next chapter is populated almost entirely by enemy cavalry. The boss, Morzas, is a mage dragon and is thus immune to magical attacks. You can safely deal with him with Javelins, Hand Axes, and bows, but if you really want to do it in style, have Marth gut the dirty mother-killer.

If you have 15 or less units alive at the end of the chapter, you're heading to Chapter 17x.
