“Reuniting with the remnants of the Freeblades of Fiana, Leif made his way west. Carrion, the knight entrusted to him by General Hannibal, served as his guide through the treacherous mountain range. They now approached the foot of Mount Violdrake, home to Dagdar and his familiar group of brigands...”

Filled with Brigands, this is a relatively easy chapter to deploy sword-wielders, including the new Carrion, who joins you from the start. It is wise to bring whatever antidotes you already have as there are several poison weapons on the map. Most of your units are likely fatigued from the last several chapters, but the chapter is easy enough even with only Osian, Halvan, Carrion, and Leif. It helps to give an extra sword to one of your units in the preparations screen and have them and it to Carrion in the first turn if you intend to use him.

If Dagdar and Tanya survived Chapter 3, and the boss is captured (but not released), you'll proceed to Chapter 8x. Have either Halvan or Osian talk to Marty then fight the boss Rumei but to get chapter 8x can be hard as Rumei has to be captured before turn 16. This can easily done by having Lifis steal his weapon allowing a heavier unit to capture him without a fight. If Lifis is still fatigued or has not yet increased his build, Leif's Light Sword and Finn's Brave Lance can be used to capture him as well. More enemies will also come down the mountain near Rumei so have anyone fight them for experience points.

The gaiden chapter will have fog of war, so be sure to buy a few torches from the shop before ending the chapter. It also may benefit you to stock up for future chapters as there are not many other shops that sell torches.
