The Fire Emblem Engage Anna Paralogue is one of the game’s most interesting ones, requiring the player to utilize careful strategy and control over their units to succeed.

Read on as we go through the events of Fire Emblem Engage Anna Paralogue: Mysterious Merchant while we share more details about the story and characters, as well as some tips to help in the battles.

Anna Paralogue: Mysterious Merchant Walkthrough

Paralogue 2: Mysterious Merchant can be unlocked once Chapter 6: The Stolen Ring has been cleared.

A village’s castle keep is being used as a hideout by a gang of bandits, and a young treasure hunter named Anna stumbled upon their stash while searching for something that she can sell. When Anna finds out that she’s deep within a bandit base, she decides to hide in one of the chests, but then later gets found out regardless. During her escape, she bumps into Alear’s party.

Mysterious Merchant Combat Preparations

For this fight, make sure that you have units that have high mobility, such as cavalry units, on both sides of the deployment area. Two thieves will be looting the chests and they will escape the area along with the stuff that they took, so have your high mobility units get to them before they escape. One of the chests contains a Master Seal which is needed to promote a unit to an advanced class.

There will be lots of enemies along the way, so plan your turns so that your chaser units won’t have any problems getting through them. You can have them positioned by the two exit doors so that they can intercept the thieves.

Recruiting Anna

Anna can be recruited once Alear talks to her after being found out by one of the bandits. If for some reason, Anna’s hiding place remains unchecked until the end of the fight, she will still be available to be recruited.

Anna is an axe fighter that has an ability that, when triggered, can allow her to loot gold from the enemies that she defeats.

  • 1,000 Gold

These are the items that can be obtained from picking up the glowing items on the ground during the exploration phase:
