One of the main selling points of Fire Emblem:
Three Houses is, well, the Three Houses. Early on in the game, you can choose between
the Black Eagles, the Blue Lions, or the Golden Deer and this determines what kind of story
you’ll experience. But what you may not know is that there’s
a somewhat hidden fourth route. And we’re going to show you how to obtain
it. Now obviously this will dive into spoilers
so if you want to discover this route for yourself, click away now. To those who want to see, let’s begin. The first thing you need to do is choose Edelgard’s
Black Eagle House and then play through most of the game as you would normally. However, we recommend making it a point to
raise Edelgard’s Support with your character to the C rank. The events of the story will play out as normal
until you reach Chapter 11. It’s here that must choose to Explore the
school. By all appearances, you can still do whatever
you want and explore at your leisure. But once you approach Edelgard, she’ll ask
you to join her on a special trip back to the Empire. The game will immediately warn you that this
is a massive decision that will affect the events of the story. Choose to go with her and witness Edelgard
become the new Emperor. Nothing will really change about the rest
of the month until you take on the main mission and it’s here that the choice comes into
play. And we warn you, there are major spoilers
from this point on. Come back later if you want to be surprised. Ok, this battle reveals that Edelgard has
been the enigmatic Flame Emperor the entire time and once you defeat her in the battle,
Rhea will command you to kill her. It’s here you’re presented with one final
choice. Kill her or Join her. These are two completely separate routes with
their own unique endings. However, the choice only appears if you watched
Edelgard become the Adreistian Emperor. Otherwise, the choice will not be presented
and you’ll end up fighting Edelgard for the rest of the story. Which will you choose first if you take this
path? Let us know in the comments and be sure to

  1. This game has a lot more options than I thought it did… I thought it was 3, maybe 4 paths but there’s more. Welp

  2. This was no secret. Every casual player that played with eldegard usually ends up talking to her, including I, while running around talking to everyone. I don't know about the ending where you don't know about her becoming emperor. XD

  3. I didn’t even know it was a secret path. I just kept my promise to I protect all of my students, and support them on their paths

  4. Lol just got it the first try. Haha That explains soo much. I thought it was a glitch of the game where the choices doesn't pop up.

  5. I've heard that the protect Edelgard choice is the true Black Eagle route, while the Fight choice is the Church's route

  6. So there are 5 paths
    Blue Lions
    Golden Deer
    Black Eagles – Stay
    Black Eagles – Go – Kill
    Black Eagles – Go – Protect

  7. I got this ending on my first play through of the game I thought that’s what was supposed to happen lol now I gotta go back and not join the empire

  8. I spent one fucking day worth on this game and now I need to play it all over again just to get the ending that I want because the Edelgard ending in itself is a secret ending

  9. Oh I didn’t know this was a secret, my first run of the game I did this so I guess in my third run I’ll go back and side with the church

  10. Wait this is a secret? I thought you would side with edlgard regardless I did this in my first play through and thought this was normal

  11. The pain of playing the crimson rose path on my first playthrough was unbearable. But looking back I wouldn't have it any other way.

  12. This is a secret? I actually went through the Black Eagle, then the Resistance route for my first playthrough.

  13. I'm so glad I didn't do this route first. The Flame Emperor reveal is way less impactful here than you knocking off Edelgard's helmet in battle.

  14. Some people say she's evil, but she's clearly doing what she sees as right and is trying to create equality so I she's clearly not malicious

  15. In fact, this fourth path is the longest one, the one with more CGI and more characters to recruit, and the best final in my opinion. Looks like Intelligent systems make this path THE path.

  16. Isn’t it crazy how there’s only three houses? If there was a fourth one, it would’ve made things a little more interesting. Like a green colored one. Kinda like how Harry Potter has 4 houses or like how ATLA has the four elements. Idk maybe I’m just reaching here lol

  17. Wait… what? So… I already did this one on my first Playthrough? Does that mean I already got the secret ending?

  18. I purposefully chose to do this, it felt like a better route than the normal one! Rhea was always super suspicious and crazy to me, and Edelgard is 100% right about the church's lies and the shittiness of Crest nobility. Yes her route is morally grey, and the whole start a war thing screams "evil" route, but I really don't think the game wants you to see it that way. Edelgard actually took care in not harming innocents and didn't WANT to kill people unless necessary, Rhea lost her mind and burned down the entire town. I actually think Edelgard's route is the morally better of the two, even though she clearly isn't necessarily the "good" route. Only people I felt bad for were her followers, like Cyril and Seteth and Flayn. I didn't care for Catherine so that didn't bother me. I made sure to spare Flayn by confronting her with Byleth, in which she and Seteth retreated. THAT'S the best ending to me, personally.

  19. Well I did this by my first walk-through and didn't know that this path was a secret. I followed her until the end.

  20. Yeah… I initially intended to make her my waifu in the game, then when she went all heretical and shit, my first and only reaction was to anihilate her ass, don't mess with the boob popess !

  21. This was my first ever Playthrough and let me tell you…I was SHOOK AF when I chose Edelgard over the Church. Now I can’t see the Church as anything but the villan

  22. I do NOT recommend the Edelgard route for your first playthrough. It's a great experience, but it's obvious the developers didn't plan for that to be a first playthrough route. There are very few (if any) animated cutscenes since it was obviously added on after the fact.

  23. I didn’t know that this is what happened. I just sorta constantly talked to everyone when they had new dialogue every month and I got the choice to kill or side with her. I now know that that doesn’t always happen.

  24. I never regretted choosing Edelgard over rhea. I don’t know ever since the early chapters something seemed off about the church to begin with. But what I regret is killing the other damn students.

  25. I found it by myself by accident. I chose to oppose her and then saved in a new file so when I was done I could go back and play the other path

  26. This was my very first run, right in that moment where I had to make a choice I remembered how Jeralt was always telling me to be careful about Rhea, that she was hiding something. I instantly choose to join Edelgard. Now the church of Seiros will always be the bad guys for me and I still have 3 routes to go. Repeating the first half of the game 3 more times with them as bad guys in my mind will be wierd.

  27. Went in totally blind and this was what I ended up doing. I loved edelgard so I decided to go with her but I’ll admit, the choice between kill her and protect her actually made me stop and think about it for like a solid 5 minutes. That’s a good game choice if you ask me

  28. I just wasted 2 playthroughs trying to get this f'ing route. 60 hours down the drain cause i didnt know you had to explore and talk to edelgard. Im so upset right now

  29. After playing the Golden Deer route as my first route, I can already safely say I'm not interested in playing the game again to experience a route that actually has story elements.
    Golden Deer's story was so underwhelming and empty, it's such a shame it got the back end of the shit stick when Black Eagles literally got everything else.

  30. I chose the black eagles as my first play through (cuz my gay ass wanted to S support Edelgard 😅) and got attached to all the students from that house. Now I can’t find myself to choose other houses because I know that in the end my waifu are going to die 😭 Am I the only one who thought that The 4th route (the Edelgard route) was kinda short??? Hope there’s more of that route when the dlc releases…

  31. Hmm, not sure I'd consider this a secret, especially considering all the warnings the game gives you; it's literally screaming at you that another route is available.

  32. Having done the Black Eagle house first, it was no surprise at all to learn who the Flame Emperor was. It was obvious in the inflection and speech patterns. Plus her constant disappearance. So many hints.

  33. Spoilers

    Wait, so going with Edelgard is a secret fourth route?! This was what I chose for my first Playthrough. All because I wanted to marry her from the beginning. Sometimes following your Dick can get you places, xD!

  34. I'm still on my first playthrough and I purposefully decided to betray Edelgard. It's not often in an RPG I get to side WITH the probably evil Church.

  35. at least you see death knight becomes your ally at the garreg mach siege thats so cool

    and one more thing for all of you who trashtalking edelgard you all have BS reasons for hating her and say some shity theories that she is this
    she is that like you saw her entire personl life you do not know shit so stop jugding her entirely.

  36. [SPOILERS!]

    I chose the Black Eagle’s first and made a different save file after making that final choice (always wondering what the difference would be in the story if I choose to not join Edelgard back to the capital and whether I kill her or not); now I know, thanks!

    I’m both routes, you learn that Rhea is capable of transforming into a dragon. If you join Edelgard, your mission becomes defeating the Kingdom of Faerghus, the Leiscter Alliance, and the Church of Seiros to rid the continent of the system of nobility.
    On the other path (killing Edelgard), Hubert rescues her, but now your mission is to defeat the ever growing Adrestian Empire. I haven’t reached the ending in this route, but I’m excited to find out.

  37. I HATE this unreasonable woman. I dislike many things. But I hate her so much I play Blue lion's rout 4 times just because I can kill her and release my anger!!!!!!!!!!!!

    DIMITRI DESERVES ALL THE LOVE IN THE WORLD.

  38. Y’all didn’t do this by default???? Smh its not hidden if u do ur rankings and speak w every student every month as you should smh

  39. So this might be a long comment, and all help and advice is appreciated. This is my first real Fire Emblem (accept the one with Lyn but I only did the part which her, on the wii u with the old graphics) and I want to get each routs ending, if you get Edelgard's support higher than C does this event still happen?
