Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn Item Guide

Fire Emblem:  Radiant Dawn Item Guide
                                  by Chaet_legend

Hello, and welcome to my guide about the items in the Game, 
Fire Emblem: RD for the Wii.  This is best used as a reference, 
and it will also cover ALL known hidden items.  I would be 
happy for any contributors.

This guide *MAY* contain certain spoilers.  If so, they won’t 
be huge.  If your meticulous in this way, I suggest playing this 
game without this reference.

I would like to say thanks to www.serenesforest.net for its great 
lists on every FE game thus far.  This helped me do the FAQ, 
thats for sure.  If you need help on any aspect, you should pay 
a visit there.

Also, dr_burger, if your out there, thanks for introducing me to 
the FE series man.  Without you, this guide would certainly not 
be here today!!

If you are looking for a certain item, just use Ctrl F and type 
it in.  With most other guides that I have done in the past, I 
get an unbelieveable amount of emails saying something is not 
in my guide when it sometimes has a whole
section on it!

This guide is based on the Normal mode.  I assume Easy is the same, but Hard
_MAY_ have one or two differences.  Do not email me about my mistakes.  If you
want to contribute to the hard mode, please email me.

Anyway, without anymore waffle, lets proceed to the main guide.

 it may be, but I get lots of emails everyday and I would rather get through it
 quiclkly.

There aren’t too many rules with this FAQ.  The gist of Copyright basically.

 GameSpot.com to have this FAQ, and the sites that I know are responsible, like
 AOL games & Yahoo Games.  However, Game Cheats world and CCC are NOT allowed
 it EVER.

Shops and the Bargain Bin:

You start off with Muston selling weapons, and Aimee selling staves and the 
Bargain Bin.  Gradually, more stock will be added to each, with better weapons.

NOTE:  Contrary to the GBA FE games, Tomes (Wind, Thunder, Fire, Light, Dark)
are now sold in the Armory, NOT the Shop.

The way this list is set out is:  Name + Type, Gold, Levels available (1-4
would be Part 1, Ch 4 for example).  If I say 1-4 to 3-2, for example, this
mean the weapon is available in every level from 1-4 to 3-2.

F means Final (endgame).  P means Proloug.  All weapons are available at all 5
stages on 4-E.  From means from that point on.  Swd and Lnc mean Sword and
Lance respectivley.  Grt means Great.  Your first encounter with the Convoy is
base 1-4.  The following missions have no armoury:  2-P, 2-1, 2-2, 3-P & 3-1.
I know it sounds obvious and patronising but I have had cases asking the most
obvious questions in the past, so I’m covering all the bases.

Hidden Treasures

This section will list every single treasure that can be found in every level.
However, if someone finds anymore that are not listed here, please do drop me
an email.

In the Japanese versions, there is a glitch which lets your lord search for
treasure even when they have been greyed out.  Simply click on them, and select
"Order", and just keep clicking on the options and eventually, the item will
sohw up.  However, since the NA release, this glitch has been fixed.

Also, why bother using Sothe and Heather?  Simply because Rouge’s and Whispers
get a massive bonus, which will almost give them a 100% sucess rate at every
time.  I’m not sue if this games Assasin gets this skill as well, could someone
please confirm weather they do or don’t?

The formulae for working your chances are:

Luck + 60 if Rouge/Whisper + Biorhytm = Sucess %

Biorhythm bonuses are as follows:

Best + 20
Good + 10
Bad  - 10
Worst- 20

I think you can work out your own characters chances from there. Well then, the
list.  The way I have done this is a coordinate system.  The first number is
going left to right, the second number is going down to up.  You have to
imagine that the square that is the furthest to the South West is counted as
(1-1).

Forging

Forging, the only reason to use Coins, will become an on and off feature of the
game, e.g., the later you get into the game, the less forging oppertunities you
get.

Since I’ve already touched on coins, I might as well explain them.

When our in battle, try and get as many spoil coins and hidden coins as
possible.  When you come to forging, you will be given a random selection of
5 cards, all of which will add bonuses to your weapon (xcept the Vine and Raven
cards).  Pick the one you want (they are face down and shuffled), and there you
go.

The bonuses are as follows:

Sword:          Mt  + 1
Axe:            Mt  + 2
2 Swords:       Mt  + 3
Arrow:          Hit + 10
Arrow tip:      Hit + 20
Feather:        Crt + 5
Seraph Feather: Crt + 10
Soldier:        Mt  + 1   Hit + 10
Knight:         Mt  + 1   Crt + 5
Godess:         Mt  + 1   Hit + 10   Crt + 5
Vine:           No effect
Raven:          Coins +4, no effect on Weapon.

As you progress in the game, you get more powerful weapons/different tomes to
forge off.  You start off with an "Iron" Weapon to forge off, and Light and
Thunder Tomes (for Micaiah and Illyana), and gradually, you will build up into
the Silver and Throwing items.  Please note you never get the chance to forge
an El, Arc, Long-Range or S(S) tomes.

Now you may have noticed that the way the Forger charges you varies. If you add
say, +2 Mt to an Iron Swd, instead of +1, the amount you pay will increase not
in a set amount, but simply put, the more you put on, the more the cost.

For some reason, if you take off Mt, Hit, Crit, and put more weight on, it will
still cost you.  Note that there is no benefit to this, except "theoretically"
you might get Weapon EXP from not kiilling an opponent and using the item more,
but why would you want to do that?  It is extremely easy to get SS ranks in
this game, especially with over 15 Arms Scrolls Hidden and for Sale.

Even though you get 5 hit and 3 crit every time you increase an amount, I will
henceforth just call it +/-1, +/-2, and so on.  It just makes it easier 
comparing with Weight and Mt, which only go in 1’s.

+/- first level:  +10% of original price.
+/- second level: +40% of original price.
+/- third level:  +90% of original price.
+/- fourth level: +160% of original price.
+/- fifth level:  +250% of original price.

NOTE:  For some reason, in the Japanese version, if you start with an item
which has a base Critical rating higher than 0 (for example Thunder), if you
then set the Crit rate to 0, the game will make it 255, guarenteeing a critical
on every turn the attack hits.  Handy indeed.

Also in te Japanese version of Forging, you have to use Forging points.  For
those of you curious of the Base Conversation with the Forger in 1-4, that
was meant in the Japanese version and was not taken out, so it is of no 
importance (even though it has *** as its rating).  If however, you are playing
the Japanese version, this base conversation will get you your first weapon
free of charge.

Every time you sell a weapon, you get a set amount of points.  It doesn’t
matter if it has 1 use left or 50 uses, you’ll always get the same amount of
points per weapon rank.  The points are as follows:

E  - 1
D  - 5
C  - 10
B  - 25
A  - 50
S  - 100
SS - 200

It costs 50 points + g to forge a weapon.  

I think thats just about my long essay on forging.

Trinities, Triangles, and Why to use Dark Magic

You may have heard of the Trinity of Magic, or the Weapons Triangle, but what
exactly are they?

Well, it means your weapons can have advantages or disadvantages over others.
Usually, this means more Hit, Mt and Crt, and the amount varies depending on
the location and units involved.

The triangles are as follows:

       Anima (Fire, Thunder, Wind)
     /|    |
      |     |
      |     |
      |    |/
   Dark<------Light

                        
         Swords
     /|         |
      |          |
      |          |
      |         |/
   Lances<------Axes  *Bows and Knives are neautral to everything*.

However, we can also split the anima categories up.

But why use Dark magic, if you don’t seem to encounter any Dark Magic users 
except Izuka, who you cannot recruit?  Fear not.  Once you have beaten the game
and play it through for the second time, you can recruit 2 Dark Magic users.
I won’t spoil how to get them or who they are, if you want to know really badly
email me.

Items worth Stealing:

This is incomplete, and will be added to.  I won’t bother listing all the
Vulneries and herbs to steal, because there are just too many of them.

A quick note:  This is the only way to get Bolting.  There are several
oppertunities to get it, but you will have to disarm it.  The best way to do
this is:

1) Damage the guy with Bolting.  Make sure he is near another person with a 
   Vulnery/Elixer, and does NOT have a Staff that s/he can use.  This is VERY
   important.  It also helps if the area is free of healing bushes in range.

2) They will hopefully go and get the Elixir, heal, which will disarm the
   Bolting.

3) Quickly get the Rouge/Whisper and steal it, so long as it is not locked.

This trick can be used for any item.  I recommend getting at leat one Bolting,
and it will be all explained in the next section.

so I wouldn’t worry if you cant get to it.
