Paralogue

Edelgard's paralogue is Insurmountable.

Overall

Being one of the house leaders, Edelgard starts with above average bases and excellent growth rates. She will be one of the Black Eagle's best combat units early on, with her only weakness being accuracy. Having immediate access to Smash gives her a reliable way to hit enemies that she can't afford to miss.

Like many other units in Three Houses, Edelgard is best built as a player phase unit. Since her main weapon is in axes, Edelgard will easily be able to certify for and master Brigand as soon as she hits level 10. Once she has Death Blow, it is a good idea to master Pegasus Knight to pick up Darting Blow, which remedies her middling speed on the player phase. From here, Edelgard should focus on reaching the Wyvern Lord master class. Mobility is extremely important as a player phase unit, since it gives Edelgard more options when she is able to move.

After the time skip, Edelgard will gain access to Aymr, one of the most powerful weapons in the game. At the cost of 4 durability, she will be able to use Raging Storm, which effectively allows her to attack up to 5 times per turn. Given her high mobility as a Wyvern Lord, this means that Edelgard will often be able to fight on multiple fronts at once. Being able to take advantage of Death Blow multiple times per turn makes Edelgard an absolute offensive powerhouse.

Since Edelgard is best built as a flier, she will have eventually gain access to Alert Stance+. This allows her to function as a dodgetank bait on the enemy phase, to draw out threatening enemies such as Falcon Knights without worrying about taking too much damage.

Aymr should be used somewhat conservatively. If you are diligent about unequipping it before the enemy phase, it will last for 5 Raging Storm uses before needing repair. Agarthium is pretty hard to come by compared to the other Ores, and you will likely not be able to repair Aymr more than twice per run. That being said, Raging Storm is what sets Edelgard from other powerhouse Wyvern Lords, and you shouldn't be afraid to use it when you need it.

Overall, Edelgard is an excellent combat unit, particularly on the player phase. She has exclusive access to the best Relic weapon (and associated combat art) in the game. Her only real downside is that Aymr is difficult to repair, making Raging Storm hard to use with peace of mind. Don't hoard your Relic uses, and Edelgard will be one of your best units.

It upsets Hubert when I spend time alone with you. I'll refrain from telling him about this.

If I hadn't been born to House Hresvelg, I imagine life would have been much simpler.

One day, I'll show you around the palace in Enbarr. It has a lovely garden.

Here I can take a break from the burden of being emperor. Perhaps that's why I'm so comfortable with you.

I have no intention of handing the Imperial throne over to any child I might have. Instead, I'll choose an outsider who's brilliant and kind.
