Basic Fire Emblem strategy

Recently, I bought Fire Emblem: Awakening. It has become my favorite first-party Nintendo 3DS game, and I am so addicted to it. My favorite character so-far is Lon'qu.

When it comes to playing Fire Emblem, there are some strategies you must take:
  • Do not use Jagens or Oifeys, except Frederick in Fire Emblem: Awakening, where you should use the Second Seal on him to demote him to Cavalier.
  • In Fire Emblem: Awakening, demote the prepromoted units with low base HP (using the Second Seal).
  • Do not overuse the same unit or a maxed-out unit.
  • Have your lesser trained units finish off the enemies.
  • Train up the Ogmas and Nabarls.
  • Train up the Cains and Abels.
  • Conserve rare weapons, especially Brave weapons.
  • Give the Brave Swords to the Myrmidons and Swordmasters.
  • Do not use Devil weapons, except under dire circumstances.
  • Forge Bronze and Iron weapons. Add Critical Rate bonus when forging a Bronze weapon.
