Being restricted to swords is of little concern, as many of the enemies on the map are weak to swords. At least one Dracoslayer weapon is preferred, to make dealing with the Wyvern Riders and Corrin even easier. Despite also being the enemy commander, Xander is recommended as well to add some movement diversity to your selection. This is a relatively straightforward map, so pairing off your four units into two teams is acceptable. As with all Fort Siege missions, strong enemies will periodically spawn from the enemy forts, so be wary of that.

Right off the bat, the two clumps of enemies on either side of your base will attack, so don't stray too far from the allied base just yet. Lissa and her Fighter will also join the action, but don't expect them to accomplish much for you. After the base assailants dealt with, another pair of squadrons will advance, this time from the bridge southwest of the allied base and directly south of the E Wood Fort. Your Dracoslayer should start advancing along the western edge of the map while your other unit should stay to defend the base. Following them is the third wave, consisting of Corrin and the lone Sniper on the map. Your Dracoslayer should be close to Corrin by now, and able to quickly deal with her while your other unit takes on the Sniper.

At some point a Wyvern Lord will spawn near the allied base and attack. If you haven't already taken enemy forts, she will go right after the allied base, so the unit assigned to fight the Sniper should take her out. Once all assailants are dealt with, taking the enemy forts is relatively straightforward. Have your two teams advance systematically through the forts, with your Dracoslayer dealing with the middle forts.

Once the enemy base opens, a pair of Heroes will spawn and advance to rendezvous with Xander. If they're allowed to do so they'll receive a huge power boost and become nuisances when fighting Xander, so eliminate them quickly. Lissa and the Fighter will also advance on Xander, with intention to kill him. Needless to say, they won't accomplish much with their axes against his sword, but they aren't your responsibility so don't worry if Xander kills yet another little sister cleric.
