    [WIP!!!]Beginner's guide to 3 star story mission maps (long load time warning)

    Starting up this video guide for beginners that find themselves having issues with getting 3 stars on certain story missions. I will cover as many missions as I can using only basic units obtained from the maps themselves, and any challenge maps I can complete.

    Started over on a fresh account to make this guide so I have a better feel of the map requirements. Will include every mission for the sake of completion, and because you never know where someone might have trouble.

    As the scenarios move forward, each video will assume you have all the completion rewards from previous maps. Even if I don't use the units in question, having them on hand is not a bad thing.

    Some tips beforehand:
    1. When first starting, feed duplicate iron and bronze units to themselves. This helps level them as well as reducing their deployment costs!
    2. Do NOT make any hasty moves to feed silver and higher units to another unit, even for cost reductions. If you do - you will regret this later!
    3. Pastoral Gate is considered a good early grind map. Use this to level your units when necessary at first.
    4. Switch your title to Descendant of the Hero ASAP. This provides a map wide stat boost to all units ATK/DEF. This has upgraded version as you gain more levels. Switch it to Hero at level 28, and Savior at level 64.


    1 - Escape the Capital



    This is of course a super easy map being the first one available. Impossible to lose, even.


    Suggest units level is of course 1


    2 - Sacred Forest


    Suggested units level 1


    Simple map. Be sure to start farming maps from this one forward until you get all the unit drops from them. You may want to do each map a few times just to get unit drops so you can level up your team to help make things easier. And also the bandit units you start getting can be quite handy for use!


    Unit completion reward: Silver Berserker Eunice


    3 - Goddess Shrine


    Suggested units level 1


    Things start to get interesting. Remember, feeding your units makes them a little stronger!


    Unit completion reward: Silver Assassin Cecily


    4 - Defend the Shrine!


    Things get a bit tougher on this map. Just a bit. Just need to have enough deployed units to fend off the swarm.
    Suggested units level: 2


    Unit completion reward: Silver Healer Dorca


    5 - Remnant Vanquish 1


    Suggested units level: 2
    Be careful not to let your units die in this one. Even if you have a healer out within range, don't hesitate to retreat someone if they are facing death.

    Unit completion reward: Silver Greenhorn Soldier Phyllis (you want her!)


    6 - Pastoral Gate


    Suggested units level: 3
    This is the first stop and grind map. I'd suggest taking the time to level up your units all to at least level 10. The higher you go the easier things become past this point.

    Unit completion reward: Silver Mercenary Crave


    This is also a good time to get Katie's lessons done if you have not already done so. Those will provide you with quite a few useful silver units. Including a mage.
    7 - Villager Rescue 1


    Suggested units level: 5

    Unit completion reward: Silver Archer Soma


    8 - Villager Rescue 2


    It helps to drop melee units on the mages before they get into casting range of your previously placed units.
    Suggested units level: 7

    Unit completion reward: Silver Archer Daniela


    9 - Gate Defense


    Suggested units level: 13
    This one was a bit of a toughie with such low level units. I ended up going with a strategy to use my rogue and pray for assassination to kick in on one of the two heavy hitters coming from the bottom.

    Unit completion reward: Silver Woman of Steel Leanne


    10 - Villager Rescue 3


    Suggested units level: 10

    Unit completion reward: Silver Mage Valerie


    11 - Wolves' Den


    Suggested units level: 11

    Unit completion reward: Silver Archer Soma


    12 - Thieving Arson


    Suggested units level: 12
    Should probably have switched out the bandit to the right of Phyllis with Leanne once unit points allowed for it. Got kinda close on enemies sneaking past.

    Unit completion reward: Silver Bandit Boss Mortimer


    13 - Bandit Hideout


    Suggested units level: 12
    Decided to use a backup assassinate strategy on the boss at the end. He hits pretty hard so I wasn't sure if Leeanne could tank him and the other two guys on her as well.

    Unit completion reward: Silver Bandit Boss Mortimer


    14 - Deep Forest Road


    Suggested units level: 12
    Bring out your archers!
    This will be your new grind map for a while. Maps from now on are going to start getting tough, with there being a few easy ones once you get past a few walls. I'd suggest leveling your team up to at least 20 before trying to press hard going forward. You may also consider grinding challenge maps for affection items to help boost the stats of your female units even more.

    Unit completion reward: Silver Lancer Elaine


    15 - Mysterious Beast


    Suggested units level: 10
    This one is pretty easy as long as you have the mages placed in time to deal with the red flying demons.
    Unit completion reward: Silver Witch Calliope


    16 - Citadel Battle


    Suggested units level: 15
    The first major roadblock. This map can prove to be a tough challenge to 3 star at low levels. The armor, large ogres, and especially the boss can easily over power your units. I may have only been lucky to pull this off with most of my units below level 15.

    Unit completion reward: Silver Lancer Elaine


    17 - Remnant Vanquish 2


    Suggested units level: 15
    Bring out your low cost soldiers for this one!
    This map like to throw out a bunch of small and weak enemies, but they come fast and they head for 4 different exit points AND they spawn from several locations. You must pay attention to your soldiers and react before any of them are defeated by retreating when necessary.
    Unit completion reward: Silver Lancer Elaine


    18 - The Royal Road


    Suggested units level: 10
    This map is quite simple. A nice break from the tough ones that unlocked it. The main focus here is to defeat the enemies before they can reach your melee units, and an all ranged team does quite well here because of the map layout.
    Unit completion reward: Silver Healer Dorca


    19 - Tomb of Sorrow


    Suggested units level: 18
    I skipped this one and came back to it a bit later. So I think my units were a bit stronger than they needed to be. I mostly relied on assassination to get through this as it works well enough using the free platinum rogue you get at level 30.

    Unit completion reward: Silver Soldier Crave


    20 - Return to Ruins

    I did a 1 star skip on this map to come back to it later.
    Simple File Sharing and Storage.


    21 - The Wolfpack


    Suggested units level: 15
    This one is nice and easy because it doesn't throw anything too difficult at you.
    Unit completion reward: Silver Assassin Cecily


    22 - Tower Overwatch


    Suggested units level: 15
    This map is a nice break and also makes for a good farm map to get player/unit exp.
    Unit completion reward: Silver Archer Daniela


    At this point, the guide becomes less of a 3-star guide for new players, and more of a get past this or that blockade. By the time you get this far, you should have a good idea about how to play and form your own strategies. Of course, some of these upcoming maps will be difficult, and not really worth attempting to 3 star until your team is stronger.
    23 - Armor of the Dead

    I suggest just skipping this one and coming back later. Here is how I did it.


    24 - Gatehouse Battle

    I suggest just skipping this one and coming back later. Here is how I did it.


    25 - Castle Retake

    I suggest just skipping this one and coming back later. Here is how I did it.

    Suggested units level: 40 to 50
    Sorry, but this one will depend on luck with the assassin killing the armor before it kills her. I highly suggest grinding your team pretty high before trying to attempt this map, unless you were lucky enough to roll some good premium units. This is currently the final door that opens the way to the last few maps - one of them being a great grinding map.
    And until the lich comes out, I'd also suggest trying to withdraw units before they die so you can get the unit points back. I made quite a few errors in this recording, but it still ended up working out in the end. After the lich comes out, let him kill your units even if that unit has no hp left. It will help delay him from going to his next target instead.

    Unit completion reward: Silver Woman of Steel Leeanne



    26 - Dragon Hunting


    Suggested units level: 30
    Super easy. Great grind map.
    Unit completion reward: Silver Mage Valerie


    27 - Remnant Vanquish 3


    Suggested units level: 30
    Shouldn't be too difficult.
    Unit completion reward: Silver Greenhorn Soldier Phyllis


    28 - Flame Dragon


    Suggested units level: 35
    This one might take a few tries but it shouldn't be too bad.
    Unit completion reward: Silver Mage Valerie


    29 - Immortal Beast

    Nope, sorry. Not happening with this account.
    Instead, I suggest visiting this thread:

    This is currently the final map in our version of the game. This one will require a very strong team just to clear it.



    To be continued....
