“After meeting Niime, the "Hermit on the Mountain," the mysteries of Bern's Dragons were slowly beginning to unfold. With more unknowns still needing verification, Roy directed his troops toward a large manor on the outskirts of Bulgar. There, Advisor Roartz of Etruria was preparing his defenses against Roy...”
The Silver Wolf (灰色の狼 Haiiro no ōkami) is Chapter 20B of Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade if you take the Sacaen route (which happens if by the end of Chapter 16, the experience points gained by Sue and Sin were more than or equal to that of Shanna and Thea).
- This is a Fog of War map.
- To unlock the Gaiden chapter, complete it within 25 turns and have Dayan, Sue, and Sin all recruited and alive.
|The following part of this article contains strategy; therefore, it is subjective, and may not work for everyone.|
Take Niime's quote about not being safe as a warning. There is a lot of long range warfare on this map: Bolting, Killer Ballistae, Berserk Staves, and also Sleep staves. To make it worse, you cannot get at most of them unless you use a Warp Staff, and the Fog of War further complicates your advancement.
Be very careful, as you will be attacked from the start. Do not be afraid to use rescue on wounded units you cannot heal, as it is possible to be bolted twice from the Sages in the grassy alcove near the center. They will prey on your wounded troops.
A strategy you may want to consider is to first rescue some of your units, as the Berserk staff Sage will not target units carrying someone else. Leave one character out with high Resistance or Luck to use up the Berserk staff uses. Next, send one or two quick characters, like A-support Clarine and Rutger, out to deal with the enemies coming in, while making sure they are able to avoid the Bolting. Once all the Bolting and Berserk uses are up, feel free to move your units up.
