i'm doing an FE8 0 growths run. what i want to do in chapter 15 is to have cormag airlift saleh over to valter's area on turn 1, on the palm tree tile thing. however, this means that cormag is in range of most/all of the enemies in that area. but, i need the enemies to attack saleh instead, because he's the only one who can ORKO everything with +3 spirit dust and excalibur. saleh has to take an angelic robe, mainly to substantially improve the reliability of a later bosskill. i haven't gotten to that chapter yet (pretty far from it) but i'm just planning ahead and i want to make sure my stat booster distribution is correct.
here are their stats in case anyone needs them:
saleh: 37 hp, 22 mag, 18 skl, 14 spd, 11 lck, 8 def (+1 from forest), 13 res. equipped: excalibur; 40 atk, 24 crit, 136 hit, 39 avoid (+20 from forest)
cormag: 33 hp, 15 str, 11 skl, 13 spd, 4 lck, 12 def (+2 from dracoshield if he needs it to let saleh be targeted instead), 3 res. equipped: spear; 27 atk, 10 crit, 92 hit, 30 avoid
if they do target cormag instead of saleh, would they target cormag if i don't put the angelic robe on saleh? if not, how about putting the robe on cormag? maybe don't equip excalibur first?
