And with that, I've finished Awakening, FUCK the last boss fight though, and I thought Stella Glow's True Final Boss was BS. All in all, I thought it was a pretty good game and I can see why people would put this on a fairly high ranking.
@The Equestrian Zodiac Now I suggest going to Wireless, /bonus Box, and than Bonus Maps. Fire Emblem sometimes have a way or recruiting NPCs, often villains, called Creature Campaign, and this is Awakening's version of it. Opening up the wiki to see how to recruit them may be necessary, since some of them are tricky.
So, Meanlucario, what do you personally think about Sacred Stones? It's usually considered very easy because of the ability to level grind in the dungeons, but from what I remember of playing it, it still wasn't THAT easy.
Sounds about right. I think it's also shorter than most other games in the series (only 20 chapters not counting Gaiden ones, though you do still have to play through it twice in order to do both Ehpraim and Erikia's routes).
