Fire emblem: three houses..... I never thought this game would be so massive, or as amazing as it is. This is my personal game of the year, and one of my all time favorite games of all time. Just.... wow.

The story telling was superb. I actually cared for all of my characters. I hated losing a few in the final battle... no matter how hard I tried, I couldnt keep them all alive... it hurt.

I will play through it again in new game plus. Hopefully this time, I wont suck so bad and keep them alive to the end. I played the game on hard, blue lions... my goodness.... i cant get enough.

I keep thinking about the story, and how I will handle certain parts, and how different each of the other lines will change the overall arch... i loved every minute of it.



Just an old man, a family man, and a gamer. My family is more important to me then life itself.

It certainly didn't work on Hilda with Byleth. But it's okay, her pain is over now .

So you killed my golden deer waifu when it probably wasn't necessary to complete the map. Guess I have to hate you now. :L

It was pretty unavoidable i'm afraid. I had to shut down 3 pathways of reinforcements and she was smack in the way. I tried recruting her as my waifu but she's apparently only recrutable at a certain month for Black eagle.

Very true indeed. It's close to being the best FE because of the characters and the way you interact with them.

2 Golden Deer chapters left for me! :D



I completed the game after a 100 hours on hard/casual. The last battles were great. Long live the empire and boo on Rhea .

I married Sothis in the end for some reason. She was already nagging my character in his own head for years so why change now .

And let not forget: goddess > empress.

I will hold off on a playthrough for the other two houses untill the DLC drops.

How the hell did you manage to marry Sothis on the Empire route?

She was just in the list under ??? when i could chose a waifu who would get Jeralts ring.

It's rather funny when Byleth tried to give her the ring: link

New update has been stealth dropped, Lunatic mode, now called Maddening mode, is here! I'm still in the middle of my fortress knight only blue lions run, but no way can I wait, starting on black eagles right now!



Alright so I just finished my 2nd playthrough of this game. There are some serious flaws but overall the game is excellent.

On the first playthrough the monastery section just takes way too much time, especially before the timeskip. There are too many lost and found items to return, some of which you can't even return because they belong to a house leader or retainer. There are too many people to talk to in the first half of the game, and most of them provide dialog without context because they are not part of your house. You don't have enough mission points to do side battles, and doing side battles takes away from time needed to keep your class motivated. You kind of have to grind professor points by fishing. All in all the first playthrough is something like 70% monastery stuff and 30% battling before you get to the timeskip. 

But on the 2nd playthrough the game massively improves. You don't need to talk to everyone anymore, because you've already talked to them in the last game. You can boost your professor level to the max at the start of the game. This makes it so that you have plenty of professor points to spend on keeping your class motivated. This makes sure your class doesn't miss out on motivation by doing side battles. You have 3 battle points per week, which can be spent on doing side battles, as opposed to 1-2 in the first playthrough. New Game+ makes the game 40% monastery and 60% battling. After the timeskip it focuses even more on battling. 

There are still a few flaws in the game that New Game+ doesn't fix though. Cutscenes for support levels tend to overwhelm with sheer numbers. Then there's the fact that Assassins, Paladins, Heroes, and Swordmasters don't really have a good option for Master Classes. If you Masterclass an Assassin you lose the ability to open chests and doors, which is their best ability. You could wind up being a Mortal Savant, but that requires learning Reason. Likewise all these classes lack a good route to Master Class because they have to learn a skill that has nothing to do with what they initially learned. Of course, there's more to a character than making Mastery Class. You can add adjutants, give them a unique weapon, feed them stat boosters, or cross-class by unlocking extra abilities. For example: I gave Leonie a legendary Spear, Bow, and Shield to make up for the fact that she couldn't really make Great Knight without huge investments in Axe and Armor. And I wound up putting a battalion with insane endurance on  Hero Class Ignatz along with a ton of Leadership based skills, and a healer Adjutant, to make him keep pace with the Master Classes.

Master classes while generally better aren't necessary, advanced classes are also viable so you don't gotta feel like you have to have all your units in master classes.

As for maddening mode, the first mock battle took me like 5 trys, so yeah I'm liking it already!
