Now that we have covered how to recruit all the characters available in Fire Emblem: Awakening it’s time to cover another tricky aspect of the game: treasures. Fire Emblem veterans know how hard it can be to get some treasures in the series: most of the times they’re placed in hard to reach spots and guarded by powerful units. Other times you’ll have a limited time to get these treasures since some quick ruffians will get in the way of your treasure collecting endeavors and steal the treasures before you even have a chance to get them. Getting treasures on map it’s not something that’s required to complete the game but some of the rewards are definitely going to help you in some of the harder story missions. To be able to beat the ruffians to the treasure you’ll need a sound strategy and some quick moving units: while they may be getting the treasures before you, you’ll still have a chance to obtain the rewards if you manage to defeat the Ruffians. Aerial mounted units are the best moving units of the game as far as movement range is concerned; you can also use thieves to move quickly, but not as quickly as the winged units. In this guide we will be covering all the treasures available in the game: the ones in the chests are the most useful but since we’re completionists, we will be covering all of them. A game’s not completed once everything has been discovered folks!
- Chapter 6 – Foreseer
In this mission you will be introduced to Treasure chests on the map: while this mission is kinda forgiving, don’t ever forget to bring some keys with you, since chests can only be opened with those keys. There’s another way around this problem: simply bring a thief with you and he’ll be able to open locked doors and chests by just getting close to them. During this mission you’re already set since Gaius is present on the battlefield: recruit him by talking to him with Chrom or your avatar and use him to reach the chest in the upper middle section. The chest contains a Secret Book. Don’t worry about ruffians stealing the contents since there are none on this map: you’ll have plenty of occasions to be mad at them during the next missions, where they’ll be conveniently places close to both treasures and escape routes.
