- Lysander, Proetho, and the best two other heroes (max level 30)
You'll have to do a lot of fighting on this map, as the
four computer opponents (Red, Teal, Blue and Orange) have two towns
apiece. You don't have to take all the towns, but you might as well
for the extra experience and the
So group together your units into two armies. You'll receive three more
high level heroes before the end of the campaign, so I'd recommend putting
the two random heroes together into one army (since you don't really need to
develop them any further) and putting Lysander, Proetho, and the five
starting troops together into a second army. Then let Lysander's army
do all the work while the other army picks up stuff.
To start out, there's only one way to go, so kill all the creatures you find
and loot all the resources and objects on the ground, and push
forward. Along the way you'll find a prison with a level 25 hero
inside (I believe it's always a General). You can either add the hero
to Lysander's army (in place of, say, the pikemen) or you can add him to the
army with the other two random heroes. Since you need to make Lysander
as powerful as possible, I'd suggest the latter course.
Eventually you'll come to a Red town. It shouldn't pose much of a
problem, and neither should the second Red town to the northwest. When
they're both yours, Red will be eliminated, and you'll have a nice base of
operations. Plus, the second town is protected by the first, so you
don't have to defend it against attacks. But eventually you might want
to think about upgrading the first town to have a castle.
Now you have a choice about where to go. You can either go south
(towards Blue) or east (towards Orange). They're both relatively easy
to conquer, but attacking Orange first makes your lands easier to defend, so
that's probably the better choice. Meanwhile, keep building up your
towns, and alternate between having champions and angels. (You
probably won't be able to afford all angels.) Then, when you're ready
to move on to your next conquest, upgrade your army to have Lysander,
Proetho, champions, crossbowmen, monks, champions, and angels.
Once you've taken Orange's and Blue's towns, you again have a choice. You can either attack Teal (to the southwest) or you can finish off the
mission. There are a few skill and attribute buildings in Teal's
territory, plus the experience for killing Teal's troops, so that's the
better choice if you want to build up your heroes.
Otherwise, head southeast, but don't attack the garrison. Instead, take
the bridge south of the one leading to the garrison. It'll be guarded
by high level Might creatures, and they'll put up a good fight, but it'll be
your last battle of the scenario, so it doesn't matter if your troops get
beat up or not. Then just visit the tree of knowledge and take the
dragon portal to Desette to finish the scenario.
