Getting the Uber Spear

The Uber Spear. This is the most fearsome weapon in the
Game, and you can only get one without hacks. In the chapter,
Unfulfilled Heart, the boss is Vaida. That spear she has equipped is
The Uber Spear, and boosts the following stats by: HP:17, Strength:5,
Skill:4, Speed:9, Defense:4, Resistance:14(!). To get it, you must
Wait a few turns and let the Wyvern Riders gather at the castle to the
North. After 3-4 turns, use the mine, and take control of the enemy. Make a chain of Wyvern Riders to get the US from Vaida to Merlinus. You can also use the Shaman to the northwest to trade the US to and get
It upon killing him, but then you lose a tome of Luna, which is a
Valuable item. If you mess it up, you will need another mine, or a
Restart. ..

Easy Way To Beat the Last Level With WEAK LORDS (Spoilers?)

This way is very simple. You only need:
1-3 very good healers (Pent, Sarah, and Priscilla are my best choices)
All the stat improving items from earlier in the game. (Recommended)
Around 3-5 units that can take heavy damage and dish out heavy damage. (Harken, Vaida, Oswin, Marcus, and Dorcas/Bartre are good choises.)
2 Strong horseback riders/fliers.
Nills is highly recommended
Before the battle give all of the items to Athos. (If you have them) Now he is a lot better.
During the battle... Well I just have a good way to go at the end of this level... So just kill all of the people that come out of the side room. Before you kill the last cloned boss to come out, send all of your units to the top of the stage by the big door. Except for some strong units ..

But you have to click around some to find the enemy units you wish to
Move. This can also be used to have the enemy drop their weapons, or
Even have them merch them to Merlinus! This is how the Uber Spear is
Now that you know how to use it you can use it to your advantage.
1. Get free weapons to Merlinus
2. Get the Uber Spear
3. Get recruitable enemy character faster by moving them closer to your ally that recruits them and get the weapons that couldn't ..

Using a dead Pent/Louise

If Pent or Louise happens to die, while the other is rescued then the one being held will appear in the top right corner of the map and keep all their stats and items, but will disappear when you move them or after you attack an enemy

Skip to chapter 24

Just skip to chapter 24 with good gear and all the people are alive

using dead people

In the beginning of the game when you have Lyn as your lord it's ok if your people die because you get them later in the game when you start Eliwood's quest on chapter 11
