If the player is wants to train Takumi and/or Setsuna, this chapter is easily the best to do so due to the exclusively flying unit enemy army. Takumi and Setsuna serve as perfect unit killers for their own training or can help other units level up as long as they are an Attack Stance partner for them. Additionally, Reina is recruited in this chapter so a potential 3 bow users are at your disposal to clear this map.
This chapter also marks the first appearance of generic enemy promoted units, so the player should be mindful of their range and weapons on higher difficulties to prevent accidental casualties. There are three Dragon Veins on the map, all of which creates a cyclone that prevents all flying units from flying through them. If a flying unit is in the cyclone when it is summoned, their movement is reduced to one tile. These serve as permanent barriers to prevent the enemy from attacking from all four sides, though it is best to use the west one after you shift to the west yourself to allow your full army to move through and restrict enemy reinforcement ambushes.
