    So I'm in the blue lion route and I'm fighting against Edelgard 5o protect the church. The church nps straight run to him even though there are a bunch of pegasi knights and 5hst dragon thing. No one of my team can take half of his damage before he crits you (he has a 19% propabilty and still crits the whole time) any ideas?

  1. Lysethia pretty much wrecks him since she naturally learns the dark spikes spell which is super effective against cavalry units. Also equip some units with horse slayers.

  2. Nuh uh. I think he has the commander ability? Doesn't that eliminate all weaknesses? Like flying units or cavalry as well. That way Lysithea's best spell would be luna, since it ignores his massive resilience.

  3. Commander: "Nullifies instant death effects, status effects, and movement effects, and greatly reduces damage from enemy gambits."

    A Rapier annihilates him.

  1. Use gambits. If you can get a couple gambits in to lower his health without risk of counterattack, all it will take is one big hit at the end to finish him off. Not easy to pull off, but enough gambits will put him in his place easily enough

  2. Ignore him. He won't follow you if you stay away from him and the enemies that spawn on his side can easily be killed with magic. You should focus on the left hand side to stop the monsters from spawning and defeat Edelgard from that side afterwards. She may try to charge at Rhea but you can either catch up with her or let a couple of units wait inside.

    I don't think you're supposed to defeat the Death Knight at that point, he will ignore you until Edelgard gets close to Rhea, but you can just take out Edelgard and win the battle if that happens.

  5. Idk what difficultly chungdam is on but the death Knight owns the counterattack ability, ensuring a counterattack no matter the Attackers range etc. So idk wat u on about
