Out of curiousity, which house are you currently playing as and which out-of-house units have you recruited?
Blue Lions which is admittedly the easiest house.
I didn't choose it for that reason though.

I never explore, grind, or use any dumb bonuses from anything like statues, so I can only really recruit teachers.
I got Maneula and Hanemman.
Hammenman and Manuela sacrificed themselves in Ch.10 because I hate that chapter with a passion.
That's the only reason I recruited them.

I'm not recruiting anyone else because I love the BL cast.

And yes I am on NG+ but since I've never unlocked anything and don't use Renown I don't believe it does anything to help me.
I hope not anyways.
I just like keeping my playtime.
Also I am curious to see if the Completion Icon will continue to change if I keep going into more NG+'s.

I was planning on making my final run Infernal Mode but since that's not a thing anymore, that's when I'll do Maddening NG for that new title screen.
Good way to end the game me thinks.

*GASP* Not Hanneman!

But yeah, Blue Lions is crazy strong.
BTW, did you do Dedue's paralogue and get the Duscur Heavy Knights battalion during your current run?
I could definitely see that making things a lot easier.

Awakening Lunatic? You mean where you only had to know what to do for the first five battles then you could reclass Robin into Dark Mage and it becomes more efficient to only deploy her (Yes, her. S rank with Chrom. Higher boosts.) and Chrom for the rest of the game?

First FOUR chapters - I don't think the flashback where you fight Validar really counts :P

Also, IIRC, you don't get access to Second Seals or Nosferatu that early.

Did you purchase anything from the saints statutes from a previous playthough? Because those automatically unlock in a NG+ run, even if you haven't brought on the current file.

Yes I did!
And that 15 turn limit can burn in hell.

Anywho, I guess I did get that batallion but I don't have a single person training in Authority so I don't think I can use them.

I dislike how low the hit rate is for batallions, unless they are used on Demonic Beasts, so I have been put off from training anyone in it since.

Nah.
The problem with Awakening's lunatic is that it turns into funeling exp into robin and then steamrolling this game. This game is more like early game Shadow Dragon H5, where it takes every unit to succeed even if they're weak AF. I don't think you will be able to destroy it as Robin does on awakening, since this game has lower exp gains and no pair up.

In other words, Awakening's biggest problem is not the high stats on enemies, far from it. It's the fact that Robin and Frederick (on the early game) are all you need and it can easily be broken once Robin gets going.

if you were the designer, how would you make it harder?

Make the enemies more offensively threating while still have them be defensively weak. Change the objectives of maps so that they're not easily done in one turn. Put an emphasis on skill combinations like giving a thief that wields a Levin Sword have Fiendish Blow.

I'd most certainly not just dump a couple of levels and skills on enemies and just call it a day.


so the same thing? you literally just doing the exact same thing but with different skills in mind.

It's not just the 2x3 grid that makes the Duscur Heavy Knights amazing - it's the passive +5 Str, +10 Def once you get them fully upgraded :3

And yeah, I'm honestly still trying to figure out how Gambit hit rate works. For some reason Annette can get a 90+ hit rate when dropping a tactical nuke on a giant group of enemies with no Gambit Boost or Link bonus, but others whiff even with a other battalions nearby to support them.
