Secret Shops
Secret Shops are hidden on the maps and can only be found by a character with a Member’s Card special item, which can be stolen from an enemy in chapter 19. These Secret Shops sell high-level weapons and even items to promote your characters.

Chapter 19 – One is in the clearing between the two broken walls above the room with the two treasure chests in the upper left corner of the map, and the other is behind a wall in the lower-right corner.

Chapter 21 – The empty room in the upper-left corner of the map.

Chapter 23 – There are two versions of this map. If the boss is Linus, the shop will be on the right side of the map, on the island. Otherwise, it will be in the trees above the lone house slightly left of center.

Chapter 29 – In the two-by-two square area left of the lone treasure chest at the bottom-left. You must use a warp staff to get there.

Chapter 30 – In the very upper-right corner of the map, among the trees.

Control Enemy
Have anyone of your characters lay a mine in front of an ememy unit. When the enemy unit steps on the space where the mine is a purple-ish colored fire will come up out of that spacce. When you see the fire, turn of your game and wait for 3 seconds, then turn the game back on. You will see the fire come out again and after the fire damages the enemy unit you can control the enemy’s units until the end of the turn. Turning the game while enemy units are in your control cancels the cheat and ALL enemy units are then no longer under your command!

Good party
Since you cant bring every person on a chapter that you have gotten, choosing the people to bring can be critical, if you choose the wrong people…

In your party, try having as many varietys with weapons as possible, because then youll have a good advantage all the time. My party recommendations are:

MUST HAVE: Guy(myrmidon-swordmaster)
Hector(lord-great lord)
Karel(already swordmaster) (depending on chapter)
Eliwood(lord-knight lord)
Jaffar(already assasin)
Matthew( thief-(would not do)assasin)
Farina(pegasus knight- falcoknight)

OPTIONAL: Rath(nomad-nomad trooper)
Hawkeye(already berserker)
Geitz(already warrior)
Nils,ninian(either one)(bard,dancer-N/A)
Heath(wyvern rider-wyvern lord)

GET RID OF: Florina(pegasus knight-falcoknight)
Fiora(pegasus knight-falcoknight)
Harken(already hero)
Kayla(already swordmaster)
Renualt(already bishop)
Pent(already sage)
Marcus(already paladin)
Isadora(already paladin)
Vaida(already wyvern lord)
Louise(already sniper)

Good way to level and lots of money
In chapter 23, when you are fighting against Lloyd(if the sum of the levels of your lords are below 50, not sure if the same thing is in linu’s map), the requirments for this is very simple for getting high levels. the char you want to level, a valkery(or the level before that, or any healer), and a extra char of any sort you think can be wasted, and have all the enemies defeated other than Lloyd/Linu, there are some vendors on the bottom right of the game screen, have your healer stand next to the arena, then have the char you want to level go into the area with full health, then fight. normally at a fight like that, and you have full health, you can’t lose, so you can keep on fighting in arena, and after the fight heal with the healer(if the char is hurt too much, used another healer with physics). because you can run out of healing staff, use the last char to run between the healer and the vendor. because of the levels of the enemies that you’re fighting against is about 1 level higher than you, you can always get about 50 exp from each fight, meaning you get a level every 2 fights, very good for reaching that impossible lv 20. and since you’ll never run out of money(because of the wager), healing items(the extra char running back and forth), and life(keeps healing), and turns of doing nothing(linu/Lloyed doesn’t move through the chapter, they just stand there and attack if you’re standing next to it, and you’re supposed to have all the normal enemies and reinforcements taken care of)you can get higher levels faster than fighting normal enemies. PS: if you think you’re losing in the arena, and it happens because of weapon disadvantage, and the char might die, press B and get out of the fight, heal, and come back later, you’ll lose little money, which will be lost even if you lose the figh, and you can save the trouble of restarting the chapter eventhough you’re almost done because you don’t want to lose a character and want to have a perfect game.

Weaken Stronger Bosses
An easy way to defeat strong bosses use indirect combat before using Lyn or another direct attack. In level 10 you can also pick up a steel bow for Wil and Rath. This helps a lot against final bosses.

Mercenary Raven
Early in Eliwood’s story, you will have a mission where you recapture Lyn’s castle. A mercenary named Raven, (pointed out in a cut scene) is in actuality Priscila’s brother. Have her talk to him to convince him to join your cause.
