My Donnel is by far and away one of my strongest units. He consistently doubles enemies, takes little damage in return, and almost never runs through his weapon uses.
MOST Donnels are supposed to wind up that way.
I leveled him to 15 as a Villager and then shifted him into a Mercenary. After that he capped most of his stat by like level 14, or a little before. I kept him going before going to Hero just to grab every ounce of HP & Resistance (& Defense).
I can't think of why you'd ever send him down the path of a Bow Knight, though. Armsthrift & Sol are his bread and butter
Plus you can get an Owain with Aptitude AND Galeforce, making levelling him up a breeze.
Mega Golem, Lunatone, Solrock, and Noctowl sprites belong to me, ask permission before use please.
I'm skill grinding like MAD right now. My Donnel is insane, and I'm not even done yet!
Also, I'm debating Lethality or Str +2 on Panne, what do you guys think? I'm keeping her a Taguel in the end, just to let you guys know.
I'm also wondering if Sol or Lethality could activate during an Astra sequence, if it does, I made some good decisions. If not, ah well.

And as far as I know, multiple skills can't trigger at the same time. Mind you, this is just because I've never seen it happen. I know crits can trigger during a skill, but I've never seen two skills trigger at the same time.
I really like how you can get more than one Beaststone and Dragonstone in the game. I'm not sure if that happens in other Fire Emblem games because I only got into it last year after getting Fire Emblem 8 from the Ambassador Program. I gotta say, Fire Emblem is probably my third most favorite video game franchise, right behind Pokémon and Custom Robo.

Directed as Hydrohs, or anyone else who can answer, but what is the best way for me to level up Donnel at this time. I think that he's Lv 7 at the moment, and I just read what you were saying about him, hence I got curious.
I have claimed Chance by UVERworld!
It's not your favorite franchise??? How could you like Pokemon better???
Usually, you could get several dragonstones. But I think this the first time there are an infinite number of stones. Which is good, of course. Those Dragonstone+ and Beaststone+ stones can be useful... (Tiki <3)
My favorite franchise is... yeah, you're right. Fire Emblem. (Obviously. That's why I'm fireemblemfan4ever.)
The Mario & Luigi series is next... then LoZ... then Pokemon.
But I've played Pokemon the longest... it's been... 9, almost 10, years.
I've only played Fire Emblem for four. And M&L for... 7?
Super Mario Bros. was my first game~ I started playing at four. =P
I was going to use the extra classes on Donnel and, his daughter, Noire. Noire just inherited Aptitude, but with Donnel, I wanted to test Underdog with the Demon Fighter class. Noire could make an awesome Bride.
I Second Sealed Donnel (for obvious reasons) as well as Olivia and Panne. The reason I upgraded the latter two is so I can inherit exclusive abilities, plus Special Dance is useless when not dancing. I made Olivia a Pegasus Knight and Panne a Wyvern Knight (which apparently, Yarne cannot inherit from Panne).

Also, finally made my Donnel a Hero. He's already capped most of his stats at lvl 2 except HP, Mag and Res, and took down Walhart in two hits. My Vaike is also dominating, just have to get him to learn Sol and then reclass him into a Berserker and he's set. Panne's also almost done, just have to get Lethality, same with Olivia after getting Swordfaire, and Nowi once she gets Lifeforce. I've trained those 5 so much they're like the powerhouses of my team. Hell, Donnel and Vaike already have over Max HP due to the HP+5 skill.

Though I never had much luck with Vaike. Then again, I didn't really use him that much, and he was one of the first to be replaced.
So I started my Radiant Dawn Hard/Maniac/Lunatic mode (which I'm making videos for it to upload). Now the Dawn Brigade feels even weaker and useless.
However, for whatever reason, I neglected using the Thani tome before, but now I see its usefulness. I'm happy to say Micaiah's speed is actually growing out of sheer luck...
But I seriously miss the Battle Save feature. Now it feels like a harder Path of Radiance with more frustration.

I've unquit, gave EXPonential Growth a shot, and oh boy is it fantastic. I'll definitely put it to good use, especially since on Hard the RNG seems to hate me, my units growths aren't nearly as good as they were on Normal. I see much reclassing in my future.
