The final battle with Biara was nigh impossible. I'm not sure what circumstances any one else had when fighting her, but she had the Shield of Dwarven Kings making Frenzy impossible. Also, since Puppet Master didn't effect tier 7 units, the 2 stacks of 100 devils (Plus the 80 x 2 that gated in) and ...

Tribes of the East → Flying to the Rescue → Summ

Went through a portal before reaching the castle landing area, so I was extremely behind on Academy troop production by the time I found it. Went into the Rolf battle with an insignificant force, though vampirism on a large stack of accumulated Rakashahshahsa whats-its and summon pheonix made the ba...

Tribes of the East → To Honor our Fathers → Fath

In my game the lion's crown was west of town E guarded by 27 lazy black dragons that fled rather than fighting. Lucky me! The stack of 396 titans I didn't even touch. Miserable creatures. Not worth the junk they guarded - none of which were the crown. (That shiny machine artifact would have been nic...

Tribes of the East → To Honor our Fathers → One

Normal v3.0 Looking back at the walkthrough it seems I didn't really follow any of the advice I would have had otherwise. Not a big problem, since I got through alright.The toughest battles were actually the sea battles (even though Lethos was technically tougher.) Started by taking Orange ASAP. Bro...

Tribes of the East → Will of Asha → Heart of Dar

I was quite surprised when I noticed the power of this army (less so the numbers than the damage per unit.) I was even more surprised when the ballista took its first shot... then second... then third and fourth. Each with a luck strike. In the end, I found that the firehounds had a conveniently tim...

Tribes of the East → Will of Asha → The Bull's W

None of the neutral stacks posed a problem at any point. Not even the impressive final-battle-sized neutral stack south of C sporting among other things a stack of 50 tier 6 renegade units was a threat in the face of mass decay. It also helped that I was able to learn a lot of high level dark magic ...

Tribes of the East ¡ú A Murder of Crows

Indeed it seems the cutscenes and in game voiceovers are a big upgrade from the previous scenarios. I still miss the detailed storytime quest texts and rendered cutscenes from the 3DO era, though :( I chose war machines for my final skill (luck being the obligatory fourth.) In my first turn of the s...

Wulfstan's Defiance - Laszlo

Normal v2.1 Laszlo assaulted me fairly early and possessed a very significant army. I couldn't risk him chasing after Duncan, who was traveling down the path at 6 collecting stat bonuses with no real army. I had to meet him at the intersection with Wulfstan. Fortunately I discovered the benefits of ...

Wulfstan's Defiance - The Brothers

Normal v2.1

I had an odd bug where some of the stacks at 9 teleported me to I' whether I accepted them or not. Strangely enough if I waited a day it became week of the sprite and the spawned sprite stacks did the same, even if I battled them.

Wulfstan's Defiance - The Guerrillas

Normal v2.1 While the defenders didn't seem to distract Andreas at all, he seemed to have no clear idea what he was doing and I managed to intercept him as I escorted Helmar out the Northeast exit. I didn't spend any time collecting stat bonuses or visiting any Utopia since my army wasn't getting an...

Hammers of Fate → Ylaya's Quest → Dragons

Normal - 2.1 After taking the dragon stack Thralsai spawned right away. He decided to head north to visit the northwest gold mine and then proceeded to... wait at the intersection. Even after moving all heroes away from the town and trying to coax him out, Thralsai simply stayed in the Northwest cor...
