Battle of the Eagle and Lion Strategy

1) Get to the Ballista

Field of the Eagle and Lion

As Edelgard stated at the start of the battle, getting the ballista in the center of the map gives your party a huge advantage over the enemies. A student (Blue Lions in the Edelgard story route, Black Eagles in Claude’s, and Golden Deer in Dimitri’s route) is using the ballista, take the student out quickly since he or she will snipe at your units each turn. You should be able to reach this student quicker if you have a cavalry unit.

2) Defeating the House to the Right

Field of the Eagle and Lion

Edelgard Story Route: The house that is controlling the ballista at the start of the battle will remain stationary since they are at an advantage. The other, however, will move swiftly as they are also aiming to get to the center of the map.

Take out their units by letting Edelgard defeat the ones with lower HP while your other units defeat the others. Just make sure that your long-range units are a few tiles away from the ballista so that they won’t be the at the center of enemy attacks.

Claude will initially suggest to let the other two houses go at each other before the Golden Deer join the fray. However, due to Lorenz’s eagerness to immediately go into battle, other Golden Deer units will be persuaded to move toward the ballista. Claude is the only one who will still carry out the initial plan. He will not move until all other enemies are defeated.

Claude Story Route: The same strategy applies, but the Blue Lions are positioned to the right and the Black Eagles to the left.

3) Defeating the House to the Left

Field of the Eagle and Lion

Edelgard Story Route: It is more likely for the Blue Lions’ Pegasus Knights to go to your units since they are positioned closer to you. That said, it is easy to defeat them if you have archers in your party. On the other hand, once Dimitri starts moving, the battle will become more difficult. This is because you will be dealing with two groups advancing towards you if you are already controlling the ballista.

Make sure you have your tankier units to the south and west sides of the ballista to prevent the enemies from getting to the center. Take note that it is also possible that Dimitri will not go after your units first but instead go after the students of Golden Deer.

Claude Story Route: Edelgard will be the one who does the actions of Dimitri in the Black Eagles route.
