Finished Chapter 13 and got like five paralogs. Mind blown. I do have a question about the twist in Chapter 13.
So if everything post Chapter 11, is two years afterwards. And Lucina is from ten years in the future, doesn't that make her around 12-14? And doesn't that make the kids I'm about to recruit 2? The timeline in this game is odd.
I don't think the proper date is given in regards to that. It would more than likely be closer to twenty years due to the characters physical appearances and the fact that it'd be a far closer reference to matching the amount of time skipped between FE4's generatioins.
Just got a 3DS and Fire Emblem with it a couple of days ago. So far I'm very much enjoying it. I just wish they could fix the Voice Language bug where it'll switch between English and Japanese audio on cutscenes and battles. Also it's hard to gain more money in the game besides selling equipment and those Bullions you pick up out of dead enemies. Are there other ways of getting more money later on in the game? I'm in Chapter 7 or 8 I think.
Bullion is pretty much the main source of capital in the game and the only real source outside of the grinding DLC. Story battles tend to have a Medium or Large Bullion up for grabs but they're typically stored in chests or in the pockets of thieves. Small Bullion, however, can be found in skirmishes (usually ranging from 1 to 4 pieces depending on the level of the fight), and can also be obtained by killing an enemy on the player phase while either equipped with a sword called Leif's Blade or with the Barbarian level 1 skill Despoil (both determine the odds of success based upon the user's Luck stat). On Normal mode you can buy items called Reeking Boxes that cost only 500 gold and can summon a random encounter to the location you use it on which you can fight for a Bullion or two which are worth 1000 a piece (on Hard or above though they cost 4800 to discourage grinding). There's also a DLC only item that halves the price of buying items but its not easy to get until later on. But generally speaking, if you care about maintaining your coffers, you'll eventually get enough characters that can pick up the Barbarian class for the Despoil skill and solve your financial troubles for the most part.
Note: you do not need any of the priced DLC to complete the game.
