How to Beat Jedah in Fire Emblem Echoes
The final battle of Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia is a fateful showdown that throws tons of powerful enemies at you. One of these enemies is Jedah, the leader of the Duma Faithful and an incredibly powerful Cantor. You’ve faced off with him once before in Fire Emblem Echoes, but the real showdown comes in the final battle.
Jedah stands in the way of reaching the final boss on the map, and he continuously summons Terrors to annoy your army. There’s a particular trick to beating Jedah, as each time one of your units attacks him he’ll nullify their damage. The key is that the fifth unit that attacks the Cantor will cause damage, meaning you have to have four units attack him first, who will all cause zero damage. To make matters worse, Jedah hits incredibly hard with an attack in the high 30s.
Because of this, the units you use to attack Jedah will either need to have incredibly high HP to survive the attack, or incredibly high resistance to nullify the damage. He can also counterattack from any range, meaning that archer that can attack from five spaces away isn’t even safe. The good news is that generally as you attack Jedah, he won’t use his turn to attack you more, and will either heal himself or summon Terrors.
Make sure to check each combat forecast when moving units in on Jedah, and make sure they’ll survive the counterattack. Meanwhile, you’ll need to move units up ahead to deal with any enemy units coming down from the top of the map. If you have a Dread Fighter in your army, like Saber if you’ve promoted him, use that character as the fifth one to cause damage to Jedah. Alternatively, if you have another unit with a high critical rate use them. This is because you want the highest chance of scoring a critical hit on Jedah, so you can take him out in one five-character wave, and not have to do it again on your next turn.
You’ll also want to keep you healers close to restore all the lost health, not to mention the nearby miasma that can sap even more, and the earthquake attack from the boss that hits all of your units. Tatiana can be an essential healer to have in the final battle, as by at least level 4 she learns Fortify magic, which heals all units in a wide area instantly. Here’s how to recruit Tatiana, if you don’t know how to get her in Fire Emblem Echoes.
Careful planning, diligent healing, and a bit of luck will help you take down Jedah quickly. He can be a tough opponent, but taking him down clears up the final battle quite a bit, just hang in there and you’ll bring him down eventually. Don’t forget you can use Mila’s Turnwheel to turn back time in battle, if you need to.
