Dart vs. Geitz

Eliwood Hard Mode.

I'm considering saving money by not using the Ocean Seal, and in any case I don't think I'll need two axe-users when I've already got Hector.

So, use one of the two, both, or somebody else who can use an axe?

Raven, Harken, Marcus, Sain, Kent, Lowen, etc. Geitz is a fine option too. Dart is expensive to use, but he has good AS for someone locked to Axes.

Dart's bases are balls

Low Skl and a Steel Axe on a map with loads of forests doesn't help much either.

10 CON with a steel axe is far more harmful to him than any issues with accuracy.

Nintendo has this whole thing about making people want to give them money and then not letting them do it.

^Agreed its really difficult to level him on a map where he has an average of like a 75 hit and doubles only on a couple units.

Or take about five seconds to give him an Iron Axe.

I love Seth. And Titania. And Marcus. All those great already promoted EXP drains they force to take up a lot on your team.

wasting a units phase to trade is... annoying.

Considering the placement of enemy units in this chapter, you aren't really fighting anything on your first turn. Wasting a units turn on your phase to trade in this case is beneficial and wastes no time.

It doesn't change the fact that Dart has 20% Skl growth, thereby making it rather difficult for him to fight anything not using Lances. His base Skl is pretty good, but down the stretch he has a bit of trouble hitting stuff.

The Steel Axe can be traded for Iron, but that requires the player to remember to buy Iron Axes in Ch 15/16, as they don't sell them in Pirate Ship. Only a minor inconvenience, yes, but if you're like me (who hasn't played in a while) and opted not to restock in Noble Lady of Caelin, you're out of luck.
