Re: Masters of Magic → Mire of the Dead

Playing on Champion. Found out in game that there is a max level of 30 so I waited too long to use my ToK and Magic Coliseum. Hired a Thief on day one to police the areas so Bohb didn't have to slow down. I hired a Death Knight and a Sorcerer to clear the caravan routes. Once I started taking Necrop...

Re: Masters of Magic → Lambent Plains

Playing on Champion I left Bohb and Violet together most of the scenario. I was able to clear my beginning island in the first week. The bad new was I couldn't quite get Bohb to Level 21. I still needed 5000 before the final battle. I should have split up my heroes up after the first week and given ...

Re: Masters of Magic → Slart's Fjord

Playing on Champion. Could not separate Bohb and Violet at first. Fought the early neutral stacks with just the two heroes so the computer would only have 2 stacks. Early on I couldn't take them all. Lots of "Pick your fights" and "hit and run" Gold and wood were my greatest need...

Re: Masters of Magic → The Isle of Pyre

Playing on Champion Those neutral stacks are brutal. You need lots of money to build a big army. Your two heroes with your biggest army still needs to pick their battles. I even had to do some hit and run to get past a very large stack of squires and peasants to get to the ore mine. I had no chance ...

Re: A Pirate's Daughter → The Strait of the Lost

I accidentally killed the last of the mermaids prematurely, so I reloaded and went back to finish building up Cyrca. I installed the Eye of Chaos, built Tawny and Pete to L23 and Cyrca to L21. I went back and the Mermaids weren't there. The guild showed there was no red army. I save at the end of ea...

Re: Elwin and Shaera → True Love

This whole campaign is broken. If Elwin is well built he never needs an army. I just finished this scenario on Champion in M2W3 With his largest army 3 sprites and 2 Air Elementals, and I cleared the whole map to get to Level 26.

Re: Elwin and Shaera → Mark of the Tiger

Champion. Pretty easy overall. Until he went underground Elwin's largest army was several sprites, and that was just so he could get around the map faster. I tried going east first, not as good a strategy. I had a couple of other heroes leading off brand troops for small battles and flagging things....

Re: Elwin and Shaera → The Lovers

Back again. This campaign was ridiculously easy at expert so I decided to try again on Champion. It is extremely hard to get the first town, still difficult to win the next two, but after that it was easier. Apparently the biggest difference between Expert and Champion is the difference in the size ...

Re: Elwin and Shaera → The Lovers

This my third or fourth time through these campaigns. I played this time on expert on this campaign, I think I can win on Champion but there are so many reloads required that it just isn't fun. One tactic I don't remember using before was very helpful. If there was only one type neutral monster I wo...

Re: The Price of Peace → To Slay an Immortal

Here I am 6 years later trying the strategy I suggested. Worked great. Once Solymyr had the underground town secure and built up I blocked the entrance to my underground town and used Town Gate to get him to the surface. I put him with Emilia and Kodge and let them do all the heavy lifting. This arm...

Re: The Price of Peace → An Unusual Betrayal

I have to fight a difficult stack of Genies and when I do I find Landrew's body, he apparently died trying to clear this same stack. I went ahead and eliminated Blue but the game didn't finish.

Re: The Price of Peace → At the Crossroads

Champion. Here I am again 5 years later. I don't remember this being this hard! I spent a month and a half slipping around looking for battles I could handle with low casualties. About that time I got enough Genies to make a difference. Then my army was Emilia, all the halflings and magi I could aff...

Re: The True Blade → The Trials

When it came time to challenge the guardians of the Sword of the Gods I won on the first try. Mass Slow, Teleport, Mass Precision,...

Re: Tribes of the East → Flying to the Rescue → Summoning the Dragons

Hard 3.0 This is my third (or fourth) time to play this scenario so I tried to avoid using the walkthrough much. This led to a pretty serious misstep! When I hit the surface I missed the early opportunity to recall my city. I also didn't look for the tear since I wanted it in that city so I had almo...

Re: Tribes of the East → Flying to the Rescue → Tearing the Veil

Hard 3.0 Reading the old posts (even my own) had me worried about the last battle for Zehir. Not so. At that point Zehir was Level 28 with his ultimate skill. He also had expert leadership with 3 feats and an open skill slot. I sent him in with 185 obs. gargoyles. He lost about 30 of them. I used Du...

Re: Tribes of the East → Flying to the Rescue → Dark Ways and Deeds

Hard 3.0 I have played this campaign 3 times and never realized that Zehir could flee and come back (as long as he controls his magic city). I completely eliminated any challenge once I tried the trick with 6 stalkers and a Phoenix. I did have some tense moments early on. I took Town B and went expl...

Re: Tribes of the East → To Honor our Fathers → Hunting the Hunter

3.0 Hard Orange got stuck in his last city because of the caravans piling up. Probably would make a more interesting scenario if you cleared those out for him. I didn't understand that the mission wasn't over when I took out Orange. I might have made a different decision about when to visit the Tree...

Re: Tribes of the East → To Honor our Fathers → Collecting Bones

Hard 3.0 Things worked out poorly for me. I only reached Level 10, missed about half of the stat plus up sites but I got the necklace and some useful skills. The biggest problem was that my rival never hit a skull total between 1000 and 1150. He went from under 1000 to 1162 so bribing the goblins wa...
