In this map, there are two Dragon Veins, both of which reveal Healing Tiles that gradually heal allies each turn. These can be used effectively when Sakura and Felicia/Jakob cannot heal some of your units. On Normal difficulty, an immobile Fighter is placed to block your units from advancing, and on harder difficulties, there will be more of these immobile Fighters, some of which may be paired up with Outlaws. Later in the chapter, an Outlaw is dispatched from the bottom of the map with the intent of grabbing the Armorslayer from the chest in the middle of the map. On Hard and Lunatic difficulties, immobile Knights with Javelins are placed on top of the Dragon Veins that reveal healing tiles. Outlaws are also placed at the bottom and will attack when someone enters their attack range.

For the first few turns, move Kaze towards the chest on the right to obtain a Seraph Robe while moving everyone else towards the left. When Kaze obtains the Seraph Robe, move him to the left like everyone else. Secure the area with the Dragon Vein before activating it while keeping Subaki away from enemy Outlaws, as they can defeat him easily.

After using the Dragon Vein, move your Avatar to deal with the immobile Fighter, using the Attack Stance system to your advantage to defeat him, along with the Outlaw. Corrin is also capable of defeating the rest of the enemies with someone such as Hana to lend a hand. Make sure that Corrin is equipped with the Dragonstone to get a Defense buff.

Intercept the thief Outlaw quickly, utilizing Kaze or Subaki to help units get to him. The Armorslayer that is obtained can be used against the Knights effectively.

When Silas is provoked, move Corrin to an area with Heal Tiles, and one where there Corrin is least attacked, with the Dragonstone equipped. Keep in mind that Silas and most of the Cavaliers along with him have Javelins, meaning they can attack at range and are able to take down certain units such as Azura and Sakura without them retaliating. Your Avatar should be able to take care of the Cavaliers, especially with the help of Azura's singing abilities and Sakura's healing abilities.


  • This chapter would later be reused in Chapter 8 of the Revelation route. Chapter 22 of Conquest route also uses Fort Jinya, but uses a different map layout.
  • This is the only time in all three routes where Yukimura is not the boss in Fort Jinya. Silas takes his place here.


In Birthright, Fort Jinya was used as a makeshift infirmary.
