'''Distant Blade''' is Chapter 9 of ''[[Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones]]'' if you choose Eirika's route. This is the first chapter you can get [[Amelia]], and see a future character like [[Rennac]] who comes later in the game. This is also the first chapter you can use [[Tana]] to fight. You get your first [[Ocean Seal]], an item used to promote [[Thief|thieves]] and [[Pirate]]s. You get your second [[Rapier]] here as well, which can only be used by [[Eirika]].
 
   
Try to recruit Amelia as soon as possible as Amelia will retreat at turn ??. She will appear again at chapter 12/13 if i am not wrong, as a level 4 recruit.

Be sure to bring [[Franz]] with you to recruit [[Amelia]], a trainee with potential. Also, be sure to bring your stronger units into the fray, since the enemies here carry stronger weapons than what you are used to. Send [[Tana]] and [[Ross (The Sacred Stones)|Ross]] (if he is a pirate) south to distract the pirates from the village, but be sure not to get Tana shot down by enemy [[archer]]s. If you have promoted Franz, having Tana rescue him and bring him with them to the south will help greatly. The rest of the group (including Eirika and/or Franz) should be heading west to deal with the other enemies (including the pirate reinforcement that will head south, towards a village).

There are three pirates in the level that will immediately attack villages if not dealt with. An effective way to defeat the pirate closest to you without using a flying unit is to station one swordsman on the coast within the closest pirate's attack range. Instead of heading to a village, he will attack your swordsman and should be easily defeated. On that same turn, send a mounted unit on the other side of the wall within the second pirate's attack range (he has a hand axe). Have an archer or magician follow your mounted unit so that the second pirate can be dealt with from the other side of the wall on the following turn. The third pirate will appear on the north side of the map on turn 2. Keep pushing through the bridge quickly and intercept him before he attacks the village. Be careful of the waiting sniper.

As for the western forces, after dealing with the northwest rubble, head south towards the other village, and Amelia. This village will give you a [[Dracoshield]]. As for Amelia, send Franz or Eirika over to recruit her, but be sure you killed the other enemy soldiers so Amelia does not die. (If you want to use Amelia throughout the rest of game, be sure to let her have any final blows that may not backfire and kill her instead.)
  +
  +
When dealing with the southern enemies, be sure to be sensible about your characters, and make sure you use sword users and magic users to counter the [[fighter]]s and [[mage]]s that intend to deal a chunk of damage (the [[soldier]]s, on the other hand, just need an axe or two to kill them). After dealing with those three lines of enemies, be sure to kill the rest of them, and visit the village with [[Rapier]] if you have not already.
  +
  +
Getting to [[Binks]] (the boss), be sure you attack him at the range he is currently not covering; if he is using an axe, hit him with magic and bows; if he is using a bow, come at him with swords. You could also equip the Axereaver dropped by a nearby soldier to one of your stronger units like Seth. After a few turns, he should go down, and the chapter should be completed.
  +
  +
If you are planning on using Amelia, there is a rather simple way to get her to level ten (this method requires that both Ross and Neimi are alive and do not have 5 supports). First, allow Amelia to fight the mage with the Fire tome as that mage cannot kill her in two shots (there must be a healer nearby.). Then, use Seth or Gilliam (without a weapon) to rid Binks of all of his weapons. Then support Amelia with both Ross and Neimi. As long as she gains 1 strength, give her an Iron Lance and then she will be able to damage Binks.

“Eirika chooses to travel by sea to the theocracy of Rausten. Her search for a ship leads her to Port Kiris in Carcino.
