“Avatar ends the Ice tribe's rebellion. Upon returning home, new orders are issued: conquer Notre Sagesse. But first, the team must pass through Fort Dragonfall.”
Another Trial (再びの試練, Futatabi no shiren A New Ordeal in the Japanese Version) is Chapter 9 of Fire Emblem Fates in the Conquest Version.
The script for this chapter can be found here.
The player starts off at the west side of the map. Move your units down to where Nyx is, and have your Avatar talk to her for recruitment. She will inform you of a wall that you can destroy to surprise the Hoshidans from. Clear the enemies slowly and carefully. On Lunatic Mode, several of the enemies will have various skills on them.
Haitaka should be the last enemy to deal with. He carries a Steel Nageyari, an enemy-exclusive weapon, which carries the same stats of a Steel Naginata but can be thrown like a Javelin. Since it shares stats with a Steel Naginata, it's drawback gives Haitaka a -3 speed to his stats. However, he is still considerably strong, as well as having terrain bonuses sitting on the throne, but he can be worn down quickly. On all modes, he comes with Rally Defense; on Hard, he gets Strong Riposte for extra counter damage, and on Lunatic, he already learns Seal Defense to save the grinding for after being captured. Capturing Haitaka is advised if the player does not have him yet, as his Rally Defense will assist the player in the upcoming chapter, due to it being a defensive chapter. Niles is required in order to capture Haitaka, as well as having the Prison built before starting Chapter 9.
If you already have Haitaka in your logbook (and the gold do so, and if this is a second playthrough on Conquest), there is no need to capture him. Ensure you loot both chests and finish off all enemies before seizing the throne tile.
There will be enemy reinforcements at the stairs if you move on or north of the tile east of Haitaka outside his square shaped "shelter."
