Now you've finally made it to the Tower of Guidance, though you can only choose 11 people ((or laguz.))continue →
This decision can be very difficult, so I'll give you guys a heads up on who to choose.
Highly suggested characters:
Pretty much all of the Laguz kings/queens will become extremely useful from here on out, so be sure to drag them along with you. Many of the Greil Mercenaries will come in handy.
Titania - Titania is extremely useful, Ike will get an Axe called Urvan ((view conversations)) and by giving it to Titania, she'll be ever scarier than before. If somehow you guys didn't realize her power and never got her good, then don't even bother dragging her around. This, though, gets applied to all characters.
Shinon - Shinon is just... good... If you didn't get him to level 5 Marksman yet, I would suggest to not even bother dragging him around. He's extremely good, but he needs high level, like everyone else.
Soren - If Soren is at least an Arch Sage, please, please, PLEASE take Soren with you. Well, only do it if you have any long ranged magic with you ((ex, Meteor, Blizzard.)) The reason is because after hte second battle, Yune will bless all equipped weapons and you've got an unlimited uses long ranged magic attack. This will become extremely useful in many ways. This also goes for Micaiah, make sure that you didn't waste your Purge yet, otherwise she's useless. But of course, she's coming along with you.
Haar - If he's a Dragonlord, he'll be extremely useful as well. Especially because of the fact that he has Canto ((can move after attacking or using an item)) he'll prove a strong ally.
Zihark, Mia, or Edward - The three swordsmen ((and woman.)) Now only take Edward if he's at least a level 15 Trueblade, he overall isn't very good unless you waste some good items on him. Mia and Zihark, on the other hand, are extremely powerful when they change to Trueblade. The other thing is that after the second battle in the Tower of Guidance, you'll recieve a really powerful sword called the Alondite ((sound familiar?)) Zihark and Mia ((as well as Edward)) can use the Alondite, which is pretty much identical to Ike's sword, Ragnell. Same power, unlimited uses, only difference is color. Give the Alondite to one of them and they're even stronger.
Volke - If you took him in the previous battle with Elincia, he'll prove worth too, though only in the first 2 battles of the Tower of...
