What should I make Chrom?***

Hiya board, it's been awhile. I just started a new FE:A run on Hard and I plan on doing it with these restrictions:
---
1) kill the Fred the paladin immediately
2) do not grind in random skirmishes
3) use paralogues only when necessary
4) no using wifi's generous cash crop of legendary weapons
5) no grinding DLC
---

So far, that's what I've got. If anyone knows any other restrictions that would make my playthru more interesting, feel free to post them.

As for Chrom, I realize that he is essentially the main character in this game, and can not die no matter how much I hate him. Problem, on every single one of my runthru's (from normal, hard and lunatic) he has always ended up lagging behind the potential of every other member of my squadrons. Put it simply, Chrom sucks. His hair, name, face, attitude, lousiness and lack of potency all unite to form a mega-zord of suck, despite level growths that were, on average, average. I must not be doing something right.

So I need to know the best way to use him, what class to throw him in, etc. I was thinking about making the Tactician a myrmidon as well.

Chrom has pretty good bases, and pretty good growths. If he's always been that bad despite getting average stats, you're doing something wrong.

A decent path to go with Chrom is Lord (20) > Great Lord (5) > Cavalier (X) > Great Knight [X - when stats start capping, or level 10, whichever comes sooner]. I recently discussed this path over on SF - http://serenesforest.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=42955&p=2617784

Why don't you just not use him?

Than put him on the bench. He also falls off in Lunatic/+ as Sumia and Cordelia rise.

during the main game? He's getting nothing out of going Great Lord really.

Could have him go Lord 10 > Cavalier 20 > Great Knight 16 > Paladin if You don't care about using an early second seal on him. They will be purchaseable by the time you need a second second seal for him.

If you're not doing postgame at all anyway.

If you're planning on running through every DLC map but Infinite regalia at some point Chrom gets his best support skillset Going Lord 10 > Dread Fighter 30 > Great Knight 15 > Sniper 15 > Bow Knight but without doing any grinding at all that doesn't seem likely to happen. He will never use a master seal if you take this route, which is kind of interesting though.

I really hope you mean after getting his skills.
