How to Recruit Nomah in Fire Emblem Echoes
Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia has many characters you can recruit to your army, however, a few of them are a bit tricky to get your hands on. One such character is Nomah, a powerful sage that can be recruited to Celica’s army at the start of Act 4. There’s a bit of a process to getting him, however, so here’s everything you need to do.
While Nomah is technically recruitable at the beginning of Act 4 in Fire Emblem Echoes, you’ll be doing some of the steps in Act 3. You’ll need to complete both Alm and Celica’s paths until you’ve reached each of their final maps in the act. Complete the battle for Celica and head inside to the Temple of Mila Interior. Watch the story scenes at the altar, and then head down to the basement and talk to the Old Timer. He’ll operate the control room, and he’ll open the gate to let water flow into Zofia. This also allows Alm to operate the Western Sluice Gate.
Now, leave the temple and switch over to Alm’s army. Complete his battle and then head inside the Sluice Gate Interior. Talk to the man in the Control Room, who’ll help you open the Sluice Gate. This will prompt a series of story scenes that lead into the start of Act 4. Once you’re back in control of your characters, leave the Sluice Gate and switch back over to Celica.
Head inside the Temple of Mila again, and go back to the basement. This time, take the stairs down to the second basement and you’ll gain control of Celica. Use the Sacred Springs to boost a character’s stats, and then head down the stairs into the waterway. Continue to follow the path until you reach a fork, take the left turn to find another Sacred Spring and a chest. Return to the fork and take the path forward, then walk into the next area. You’ll find yourself face to face with Nomah who, as it turns out, is horribly lost. Just talk to him and you’ll be given the option of recruiting him to your army.
