Paralogue: Black Market Scheme - Tips and Tricks

Secure the Arms Early On

Using the Fire Orb (1).jpg
Taking control of the Fire Orb, Ballista, and Onager will be worth it in the later battle as reinforcements will keeping coming in different areas. You can also use them to deal damage to the commander from afar.

Use Them to Break the Beast's Barrier

The Forlorn Beast has an ability that raise Avoidance on certain weapons. You can first the Fire Orb, Ballista, and Onager, as well as magic attacks and gambit, to break its barrier and get it confused, then rush all your units to unleash attacks.

Take Care of the Reinforcements First

Before you rush out to defeat the commander, it is wise to defeat the surrounding enemies first, as well as the backups that will come, so you do not get outnumbered. The commander, as well as the 2 surrounding men will not move until you attack them first, so use that to your advantage.

Paralogue: Black Market Scheme - After the Battle

After the battle, Baron Ochs passes away as a monster, and it is revealed why he was after Vajra-Mushti. Balthus explains that the weapon is not a Hero's Relic per se, but a replica. However, it is Balthus' family heirloom, and so rather than putting his village in danger by bringing the weapon back, he entrusts it to you.
