Fire Emblem Three Houses: Cindered Shadows Chapter 4
Your goal is to get to the two checkpoints within 10 turns each. Speed is the biggest factor so you need to avoid battling enemy golems that you encounter and take the shortest possible route the map.
There will be an enemy sniper that you need to watch out for so strategize in a way that keeps your flying units safe from it. The best place for them is behind Dimitri, Edelgard and Yuri. Kill the sniper and then proceed south with Byleth leading the charge.
You will come across a barricade that you need open with a lever in the southeast corner before your units and proceed south.
We recommend sending out Dimitri, Constance and Calude to pull levers that open gates since they’re capable of covering more ground.
Ignore the Golem and focus your attack on the mages with Byleth’s Sword of the Creator.
Take care of the armored knights via magic from Hapi and Constance and then send one of your units to the tile. When enemy reinforcements show up, you must keep Constance with the units in the east.
Proceed through the passage in the east to continue Chapter 4 of Fire Emblem Three Houses DLC with Dimitri, Balthus, and Claude. Keep heading north while Byleth takes care of the foes on the other side of the wall.
Once you’re in the next room that contains the special tiles, you will need the combined might of Byleth, Dimitri, Balthus, and Claude to take down the foes you encounter.
Once all your units have reached the target destination to the North, you will have successfully completed the mission.
Upon completion of Chapter 4 of Cindered Shadows DLC, you will be rewarded Smithing Stone (x30).
