Tactics Ogre: The Knight of Lodis Walkthrough - Version 1.10

Before I begin, a few notes:
This Walkthrough will not contain the storyline for the game. Why?
1. There are other guides that already have the storyline typed out.
2. This makes the guide storyline spoiler free except for boss names.
3. I'm lazy.

Items that say one-of-a-kind with an * next to them means they can also be
gotten through versus mode.
All items that say one-of-a-kind without an * cannot be acquired through any
other means short of trading.

This FAQ will not include information for Quest Mode or Verus Mode. Or Emblem
info....there are other FAQs around if you need info on them.

After the Opening scenes:

Mission 1: Lutra Islands
Winning Condition: Defeat the Leader
Leader/Class: Stan/Bandit (drops Francisca)
Enemies: 2 Soldiers (M), 1 Soldier (F)
Union: Mercenary
Bonus Money: 0 Goth
Guests: Rictor, Orson, Lara, Justin
·This is your first battle, and you only control Alphonse. The guests will do
most of the work, just attack the enemies to gain experience. Rictor has Heal
so there is no way you can lose. Just focus on one enemy at a time. The guests
will attack randomly, so the battle could really end at any time. If you're
near Stan, then attack him, he's worth more experience.

Mission 2: Port Scabellum
Winning Condition: Defeat the Leader
Leader/Class: Mullin/Wizard (F) (drops Thunder Flare)
Enemies: 2 Soldiers (M), 1 Soldier (F)
Union: White Fang Troops
Bonus Money: 0 Goth
Guests: Ivanna, Rictor, Orson
·This battle is a snap as well. Rictor and Orson will show up at the beginning
of turn 3 and save the day. It's impossible to lose, both Rictor and Ivanna
have Heal. Again, just focus on attacking enemies for experience. The leader
wields magic and will hide behind buildings to attack form afar. Let the guests
take care of her.

Mission 3: Vespa Hill
Winning Condition: Defeat the Leader
Leader/Class: Cressida/Archer (F) (drops Great Bow)
Enemies: 2 Bandits, 2 Soldiers (M), 2 Soldiers (F)
Union: White Fang Troops
Bonus Money: 500 Goth
Guests: Ivanna
Recommended Level: 3
·Here you go, your first real battle. Most of the enemies are equipped with
bows, some with a sword (or axe) and a bow. Try to focus on one enemy at a
time, and swarm them.
·This is a good opportunity to get a requirement for Deneb. One of the male
soldiers has a Long Sword. Lower his HP and use Deneb to persuade him. This
will get her the Vixen's Whisper emblem and a free Long Sword.
·Cressida will snipe you from the top of the hill. Kill all the enemies first
and then kill her. A lone Archer is very easy to beat.
·Have your troops stay together. Gang up on one enemy at a time, attacking him
or her from all sides if possible. This strategy can be applied for EVERY
battle. Learn and remember it.

Bonus Money: 1500 Goth
Union: White Fang Troops

·This battle can be quite hard if you haven't trained properly.
·The Soldiers will reach you first. Take 1 or 2 of them out before focusing on
the Wizard and Cleric. Then the Archers, and then mop up the remaining
Soldier(s)
·The Wizard will drop Crag Crush and the Cleric will drop Cleanse.
·Grimal is equipped with Chain Mail, so your attacks won't do much. Magic works
best against him. Just be persistent and you'll wear him down.

Mission 5: Lake Ardea
Winning Condition: Defeat All Enemies
Enemies: 3 Hawkman, 2 Griffins, 2 Faeries
Union: None
Bonus Money: 500 Goth
Guests: Cybil
·All your enemies are flying which will prolong the battle. You have them
outnumbered though, so that gives you an advantage.

the Hawkmen first, then the Griffins, and then hunt down the Faeries.
·Cybil will be quite powerful with her spells and will be a big help.

Mission 6: Cape Urodela
Winning Condition: Defeat the Leader
Leader/Class: Sitri/Ninja (M) (drops Matsukaze)
Enemies, 3 Ninjas (M), 2 Ninjas (F), 1 Witch
Union: White Fang Troops
Bonus Money: 500 Goth
Guests: Cybil
·This is an annoying battle. Both Sitri and the Witch have spells that can put
you to sleep, which will prolong the battle.
·One of the female Ninjas has a very rare item called the Necklace of Resist.
She will drop it when she dies, but feel free to persuade her if you need an
extra member.
·One of the male Ninjas drops an Altar of Resurrection.
·The Witch has a Spell Robe, which is a wonderful robe for this point in the
game. You'll have to persuade her to get it. Hopefully someone has the
Arbitration emblem or you're going to have a tough time.

Cybil will ask you a question here.
Choose A and you will be on A Path and be able to get Shiven, Cybil, and the
Teleport Spell. Path A is the storyline that actually happens in the Ogre
Battle Universe.
Choose B and you will be on B Path and be able to get Orson, Rictor, and the
Time Flux Spell. B Path also has harder battles at Sufrir, Arena, Haena, Crypt,
and Charadrius.

big help here.

·Take out the Octopi first, then the Mermaids, and then the Faeries.

hard without the Arbitration emblem though.
·The Cerberus and Dragons are quite strong. The Dragons breath attacks and the
Cerberus's Mesmerize are pretty powerful. Once they are dead, take out the
Hawkmen. Save the Gremlins for last.
·Be sure to protect Eleanor.

·On your first turn give your Cleric a Magic Seed and move your melee troops
forward. Next turn use Exorcism on two undead - they should be bunched together
so that the spell can hit two at a time. Suspend before trying. Reload if you
don't exorcize both of them. Repeat this process every turn.
·Attack some of the undead with your melee fighters and spells. Once at least 2
of them are crumpled and waiting to revive, use Faith to exorcise them. Repeat
this process when needed to end the battle.

edge of the forest, prolonging the battle. Be fast!

- it's undead so it leaves no war trophy
·Once he's on your side, vaporize the undead with Eleanor's Star Tiara if you
have it. If not then Exorcism and Faith will work.

Note that if you pick up an item, level up, or persuade an enemy in any of the
following battles and beat the final battle they will not save! The only things
that save are the Anbicion Sword (If you win) and an emblem for Alphonse
(Relix's Emblem if you win, The Cycle of Life if you lose).

Mission 27A: Angel's Headstone
Winning Condition: Defeat the Leader
Leader/Class: Mycale/Lich
Enemies: 1 Daemon, 2 Undead Knights (M), 1 Undead Wizard (F), 2 Ghosts, 1
Dragon Zombie
Union: Fallen Angel
Bonus Money: 0 Goth
·Use Eleanor's Star Tiara to vaporize the undead immediately. The Daemon is no

offensively and defensively with spells and he's got a lot of  physical defense.

Mission 28A: Garden of Memories
Winning Condition: Defeat the Leader
Leader Judecca/Angel Knight (F)
Enemies: 2 Angel Knights (M), 2 Daemons, 2 Warlocks, 1 Giant
Union: Fallen Angel
Bonus Money: 0 Goth

Essence, and the Giant will drop an Altar of Resurrection. They will be useful

Winning Condition: Defeat the Leader
Leader/Class: Rahouart/Daemon
Enemies: 1 Dark Angel (M), 1 Dark Angel (F), 2 Gorgons, 2 Swordmasters, 1 Vrtra

Mission: 29A: Hall of Conviction
Winning Condition: Defeat the Leader
Leader: Shaher (drops Anbicion)
Enemies: Cirvante (Dark Angel (M), Lethe (Dark Angel (F), 1 Angel Knight (M), 1
Angel Knight (F), 3 Daemons
Union: Fallen Angel
Bonus Money: 0 Goth
·Lethe and Cirvante will drop Angel Fruit and Spirit Fruit.
·Two of the Daemons will drop an Orb and a Revive Stone.
·One of the Angel Knights will drop Healing Essence.
·Same deal as the last two battles. Be careful though. Watch out for Shaher's
Ice Requiem - it hits everyone for water-based damage and may put people to
sleep.

Now you have the chance to organize your troops one last time for the final
battle. Note that you will use the same 8 characters that you used in the
previous battle. So make sure everyone is alive before you deal the angel the
final blow or you'll be short on characters! Be sure to have Longicolnis
equipped to a character before entering the battle or YOU CANNOT WIN. You may
also want to equip the Anbicion sword you just received. Any Snapdragon Swords
you have will be of tremendous usefulness here.

Mission 30A: Nether Region
Winning Condition: Defeat the Leader
Leader/Class: Shaher/Sacred Demon
Enemies: 2 Dark Stalkers, 2 Hell Gigantes
Union: Netherworld
Bonus Money: 0 Goth

This is it, the Final Battle! Make sure you have a Priest with Ressurcection,
Heal Plus, and Cleanse. I normally use 1 Priest, 3 melee units, a bow-user, 2
people to summon and another person to attack and summon (Elrik). Equip 1
person with  Pearl Necklace and 2 with the Dragon Eyes. Be sure your Priest has
either one of them. Give everyone else other than Alphonse an Amulet. This
protects EVERYONE from being petrified and protects 4/8 of your characters from
all status effects. Try to have a store of Healing Essences, Magic Essences,
Healing Salves, Magic Salves, Wisdom Fruits, Spirit Fruit, and Angel Fruits.

Shaher has 4 moves:
Apoclyspe: This will deal massive damage to 1 character. Very powerful
Cataclysm: This will deal massive damage to ALL characters other than Shaher,
including his allies. Hope and pray he dosen't use it.
Day of Reckoning: Inflicts a random Status Effect (Sleep, Poison, Confusion,
Charm, Paralyze, Petrify) on every one of your characters. This is way I
mentioned the Pearl Necklace, Dragon Eyes and Amulets. This is why a protected
Priest with Cleanse is useful to have. However if one of your characters is
gravely injured, heal him and have someone else cure them with Spirit Fruit or
another cure item.
Descent: Shaher will summon allies on the edges of the battlefield to replace
his fallen troops. He will only use this when he has 2 or less allies. He will
bring his minion count back up to 4. He can summon Dark Stalkers (Ninjas), Hell
Gigantes (Giants), and Predators (Dragoons).

Note the Shaher also has an attack called Shear. He can use this in addition to
another one of his skills.

Shaher's level will top at 37, and his minions at 35. If you train to level 40
or above you will have a significant advantage, but you can beat him as early
as level 28. (I've never done that but I've heard others have.) To be safe, try
around level 32.

SC
CC

S=Shaher
C=Your characters that can be hit by Shear.

YOU MUST HIT SHAHER WITH LONGICOLNIS!!! If you don't do this first, then all
other attacks will deal no damage and you will lose in a few turns! Attack him
with it from 2 spaces away to avoid Shear.

Strategies:
·Charm two of his minions. This will cause all of them to waste their turns
since the other 2 will always use Spirit Fruit on them.
·You could also try to kill 2 of his allies every turn. This will cause him to
use Descent every turn.
·Kill the 2 Hell Gigantes and suspend. If he summons Dark Stalkers keep going
but if he summons Predators reset. Predators are insanely powerful but 4 Dark
Stalkers is pretty easy to deal with.
·Have your Atropos user use it on him every turn. Put a Priest with Full Heal
behind him or her. Use Full Heal every turn to heal the damage from Shear. Have
the other characters kill 2 minions so he uses Descent every turn.
·To avoid Shear have a character attack him with Clotho from 2 spaces away and
the Anbicion (you can equip it between the last battle and this one) effect
from the sword from two spaces away. Have everyone else take out minions so he
uses Descent every turn.
Note: Not all of these strategies are mine. Various people on message boards
came up with some of them.

do she'll flee.

Enemies: 3 Mermaids, 2 Faeries/Hawkmen, 2 Octopi/Nagas

armor.

Hawkmen. Save the Gremlins for last.
·Be sure to protect Eleanor.

so that the spell can hit two at a time. Suspend before trying. Reload if you
don't exorcize both of them. Repeat this process every turn.
·Attack some of the undead with your melee fighters and spells. Once at least 2
of them are crumpled and waiting to revive, use Faith to exorcise them. Repeat

the other you'll have to persuade. Other than these two, the only other way to
acquire them is Vs. Mode.
·The Priest has the one-of-a-kind Divine Radiance spell. He also has a Robe of
the Wise so I'd persuade him to get it. He'll drop the spell, though.
·Kill Lethe as soon as possible with summons. Her Thunder Flare is insanely
powerful - Don't bunch your characters together.

off Lara and Justin first with a melee swarm and/or summons.

your Atropos user in and kill her first turn.
·The Wizards should go next. The Duke Knights have weak weapons but are heavily
armored. Kill them last.

Bow-wielding Duke Knight for last.

Leader: Rimmon (drops Goblin Helm)
Enemies: 2 Undead Knights (M), 3 Ghosts, 2 Dragon Zombies
Union: Netherworld
Bonus Money: 200 Goth
·Don't do a first turn Star Tiara. Persuade the Dragon Zombie that's equipped
with a Necklace of Resist first. Persuasion is the only way to get the necklace
- it's undead so it leaves no war trophy
·Once he's on your side, vaporize the undead with Eleanor's Star Tiara if you
have it. If not then Exorcism and Faith will work.
·Rimmon's stats are incredible. He deals mega damage and has lots of defense.
Bombard him with summons for an easy kill, though

is extremely rare.

Enemies: 2 Angel Knights (M), 2 Daemons, 1 Wizard (F), 1 Witch, 1 Vrtra

Nathalork Mail.
·One of the Daemons will drop a one-of-a-kind B Path only Euros hammer.
·The second Daemon will drop Leviathan Mail.
·The Wizard will drop an Earth Ring.

then the Daemons and Angel Knights. Save the Wizard for last.

If you leave Charadrius now and go to Lutra you will encounter Glycinia. See
the Glycinia Guide for more info.

Note that if you pick up an item, level up, or persuade an enemy in any of the
following battles and beat the final battle they will not save! The only things
that save are the Anbicion Sword (If you win) and an emblem for Alphonse
(Relix's Emblem if you win, The Cycle of Life if you lose).

Mission 27B: Angel's Headstone
Winning Condition: Defeat the Leader
Leader/Class: Mycale/Lich (drops nothing)
Enemies: 1 Daemon, 2 Undead Knights (M), 1 Undead Wizard (F), 2 Ghosts, 1
Dragon Zombie
Union: Fallen Angel
Bonus Money: 0 Goth
·Use Eleanor's Star Tiara to vaporize the undead immediately. The Daemon is no
threat. Use Original Attacks and Summons on the Lich. He's very strong both
offensively and defensively with spells and he's got a lot of  physical defense.

Mission 28B: Garden of Memories
Winning Condition: Defeat the Leader
Leader Judecca (drops nothing)
Enemies: 2 Angel Knights (M), 2 Daemons, 2 Warlocks, 1 Giant
Union: Fallen Angel
Bonus Money: 0 Goth
·One of the Angel Knights will drop Spirit Fruit, a Warlock will drop Healing
Essence, and the Giant will drop an Altar of Resurrection. They will be useful
for the Final Battle.
·If you're not interested in the items then go straight for the leader. She's
not heavily armored so killing her isn't too hard.

Mission 29B: Hall of Corruption
Winning Condition: Defeat the Leader
Leader: Rahouart (drops nothing)
Enemies: 1 Dark Angel (M), 1 Dark Angel (F), 2 Gorgons, 2 Swordmasters, 1 Vrtra

Mission: 29B: Hall of Conviction
Winning Condition: Defeat the Leader
Leader/Class: Shaher/Fallen Angel (drops Anbicion)
Enemies: Cirvante (Dark Angel (M), Lethe (Dark Angel (F), 1 Angel Knight (M), 1
Angel Knight (F), 3 Daemons
Union: Fallen Angel
Bonus Money: 0 Goth
·Lethe and Cirvante will drop Angel Fruit and Spirit Fruit.
·Two of the Daemons will drop an Orb and a Revive Stone.
·One of the Angel Knights will drop Healing Essence.
·Same deal as the last two battles. Be careful though. Watch out for Shaher's
Ice Requiem - it hits everyone for water-based damage and may put people to
sleep.

Now you have the chance to organize your troops one last time for the final
battle. Note that you will use the same 8 characters that you used in the
previous battle. So make sure everyone is alive before you deal the angel the
final blow or you'll be short characters! Be sure to have Longicolnis equipped
to a character before entering the battle or YOU CANNOT WIN. You may also want
to equip the Anbicion sword you just received. Any Snapdragon Swords you have
will be of tremendous usefulness here.

Mission 30B: Nether Region
Winning Condition: Defeat the Leader
Leader/Class: Shaher/Sacred Demon
Enemies: 2 Dark Stalkers, 2 Hell Gigantes
Union: Netherworld
Bonus Money: 0 Goth

This is it, the Final Battle! Make sure you have a Priest with Ressurcection,
Heal Plus, and Cleanse. I normally use 1 Priest, 3 melee units, a bow-user, 2
people to summon and another person to attack and summon (Elrik). Equip 1
person with  Pearl Necklace and 2 with the Dragon Eyes. Be sure your Priest has
either one of them. Give everyone else other than Alphonse an Amulet. This
protects EVERYONE from being petrified and protects 4/8 of your characters from
all status effects. Try to have a store of Healing Essences, Magic Essences,
Healing Salves, Magic Salves, Wisdom Fruits, Spirit Fruit, and Angel Fruits.

Shaher has 4 moves:
Apoclyspe: This will deal massive damage to 1 character. Very powerful
Cataclysm: This will deal massive damage to ALL characters other than Shaher,
including his allies. Hope and pray he dosen't use it.
Day of Reckoning: Inflicts a random Status Effect (Sleep, Poison, Confusion,
Charm, Paralyze, Petrify) on every one of your characters. This is way I
mentioned the Pearl Necklace, Dragon Eyes and Amulets. This is why a protected
Priest with Cleanse is useful to have. However if one of your characters is
gravely injured, heal him and have someone else cure them with Spirit Fruit or
another cure item.
Descent: Shaher will summon allies on the edges of the battlefield to replace
his fallen troops. He will only use this when he has 2 or less allies. He will
bring his minion count back up to 4. He can summon Dark Stalkers (Ninjas), Hell
Gigantes (Giants), and Predators (Dragoons).

Note the Shaher also has an attack called Shear. He can use this in addition to
another one of his skills.

Shaher's level will top at 37, and his minions at 35. If you train to level 40
or above you will have a significant advantage, but you can beat him as early
as level 28. (I've never done that but I've heard others have.) To be safe, try
around level 32.

SC
CC

S=Shaher
C=Your characters that can be hit by Shear.

YOU MUST HIT SHAHER WITH LONGICOLNIS!!! If you don't do this first, then all
other attacks will deal no damage and you will lose in a few turns! Attack him
with it from 2 spaces away to avoid Shear.

Strategies:
·Charm two of his minions. This will cause all of them to waste their turns
since the other 2 will always use Spirit Fruit on them.
·You could also try to kill 2 of his allies every turn. This will cause him to
use Descent every turn.
·Kill the 2 Hell Gigantes and suspend. If he summons Dark Stalkers keep going
but if he summons Predators reset. Predators are insanely powerful but 4 Dark
Stalkers is pretty easy to deal with.
·Have your Atropos user use it on him every turn. Put a Priest with Full Heal
behind him or her. Use Full Heal every turn to heal the damage from Shear. Have
the other characters kill 2 minions so he uses Descent every turn.
·To avoid Shear have a character attack him with Clotho from 2 spaces away and
the Anbicion (you can equip it between the last battle and this one) effect
from the sword from two spaces away. Have everyone else take out minions so he
uses Descent every turn.
Note: Not all of these strategies are mine. Various people on The
tacticsogre.com message boards came up with some of them.

Congratulations, you've beaten Tactics Ogre: The Knight of Lodis. Hope you
