Get Shinon back

Ashera Staff

In Chapter 22, Solo, there is a group of priests that are taken hostage and used as bodyguards. Instead of killing the priests, including the head priest, shove them out of the way. The ability Smite is useful in this battle. Mordecia the Tiger Laguz has this ability, and in the last battle if you raided all the rooms of their treasures, then you should also have another Smite ability. Use these to knock the priests out of the way and make sure not to stand next to the ones with light magic; they will either damage you or you will kill them. If you make it all the way through the level without killing any of the priests, the head priest will reward you with the Ashera Staff (Staff-S Wt-4 Range-total, restores all HP to all allied units, as well as restoring their condition to normal).
