14) Hope in Haruna
Don’t underestimate this level. Due to my new powerful equipment I was very confident and used Rene. She dug up only one of the two items, the others killed fast and didn’t get much damage, but I only ranked A, so I replaced Rene with Flare, tried again with the same battle strategy and succeeded. My party consisted of Kyril, Seneca, Andarc, Kika, Lazlo, Mizuki, Akaghi and Flare. On the first turn, I killed 2 soldiers with Akaghis 2.lv. lion rune spell, another one with Kika and Mizuki, 1 or 2 more on the platform left with Lazlo, and the spearman by Simeon with Andarcs 3.lv. spell. Then I moved the ninjas and Flare left to kill the rest of the bunch there. Kika, Lazlo, Kyril and Seneca killed the foes in the middle, inclusive of reinforcements. Andarc used spells from atop to attack the foes threatening Simeon. The reinforcements on the top left were taken out by Lazlo’s magic, the ninjas and Flare. One of Lazlo’s spells opened the chest.
After the battle I got my weapons honed, and bought some godspeed anklets and magical capes, and a gale rune for Rene. Then I went to the Obel Ruins on earth day to get the rest of its quest items. In the mother earth chamber I used Lazlo, Kika, Nalleo, Dario, Flare, Corselia, Akaghi and Mizuki. After taking out the spider beetles and elemental spirits, I switched Mizuki for Noah to steal some earth force mirrors. After a mistake on my part, Lazlo had to retreat, but thanks to Corselias magic powers I could beat the level. Remember to disable counter attack (in case there are no elementals) and let one enemy alive, so Rene can go digging. I gave one earth force mirror to Rene.

15) Small Border Village
My party: Kyril, Seneca, Andarc, Akaghi, Mizuki, Kika and Lazlo. On the first turn I killed the lower left cannon with Seneca (2.lv. hawk rune) and Kyril (1.lv. swallow rune). I cast a thunder runner on the middle cannon, which didn’t kill it, but left it on its weakness terrain, so that its attack did only 1-20 damage. Lazlo killed 2 of the bunch to the right. The ninjas, Kika and Lazlo killed everything up to the center of the map, the others needed some time to catch up. When your reinforcements appear, just leave them on their terrain and do nothing with them. When the mounted enemy reinforcements approach you, it’s a good time to use the unite attack of Kika and Lazlo. Once all enemies except 3 cannons and some archers are taken out, move Kyril and Akaghi to the left cannon to change its terrain (from wind to fire) and kill the archer. Do the same with Kika and Lazlo at the cannon to the right (from earth to wind), and Mizuki at the cannon in the middle (from fire to water). After the archers are taken out and the cannons weakened by their opposite terrain, you can do devastating damage and kill them. The items in this level are not worth risking S-Rank: Chiepo has better stuff; if you love to use the mother earth rune, just take the chest at the top right (I already had one from the m. e. chamber).
