@bombur as an alternative, go to your necropolipse town, hire all the haven troops in a caravan to it, and convert them all to Necro troops.  You can have a ungodly (no pun intended) army this way.  Imagine all those peasants as skel archers .

Ok so I did post something like this somewhere else but I was shut down.

My question isn't so much about problems with the campaign, but the game itself, and I was only aware of this problem in this first scenario.

Anyway, when i start the campaign, i only have one objective which is to keep ornella alive but that is it. Nothing else. Eventually i come across the alternates, but that only adds one secondary objective.

So second time around tryin this map, i went straight to the first town to take over. Once i do, ornella is next to the town havin a conversation with some wizard or something... i dont know because nobody is there! She is talking to thin air.

Either way, still no mission objectives. So i went straight to the portal, could go straight through it but only after that, i talk to Giovanni and Malfoy and i get 2 objectives: find the upper and lower halves of a key. I'm already over there!? So then i'm stranded.

Obviously this isn't meant to happen, so what i'm asking - as I was innocently so doing last thread - is will I have to re-install TotE to get it to work again? Or is there another way? Because i have tried a few times and i get the same result every time.

Orlando is completely owned by dark magic, all you need for that battle is some liches, dark does the rest. I took seraphs with me but I couldn't even find a unit to use divine vengeance on... if you feel like it summon the avatar but it's not really needed ...

From memory Ornelia usually talks to the vampire lord Giovani, but sometimes she just talks to herself... I think that for the first town she just mentions that it's a good idea to take it. Now strictly speaking of the scenario, if you pay attention Ornelia says at the start of the map that she should collect as many undead as possible, so do just that, walk around the map following the road and amass an army through your necromancy skill and other creature buildings. This scenario is pretty straight forward just follow the road and flag all stuff you see. You will make several encounters that will add some objectives one of them will be to find 2 shards of a key, complete that and continue your path for some hero battles.

What might be confusing you is that some objectives are not cleqrly written but just said so better play with sound on.

If I hadn't read this before I began the campaign, I would have been confused too. But, I did, so I was safe. As I recall, patience is key to this campaign, so just defeat all neturals. Be mindful of the time limit. And find the forge ahead of time.

KK, i think my ToTE is bugged, cuz the game won't let me get Howl of terror! I started the third level w/ expert summoning, dark and enlightenment but then it keeps not offering me any of the right skillz. Anyone know what's up with that?

A quick question.  Are you just reloading saved games?  From what I understand the skill progression is set when you first start a map.  So in order to change that you usually have to start over.  However, I am not possitive this is the case.  Also, keep in mind that if it is a campain that normally you will find a memory mentor later and be able to redirect yourself back toward the ultimate.

Hmm then all I can suggest is to go through the map and wait till you find a memory mentor.  I have some horrible luck with skills/perks also most of the time.

It's to the west of the enemy town. There should be a portal near the first group of dragons.

Well I started playing this map, the first Necropolis one I believe, a while back and got stuck trying to find this second half of the key. Reading the strategy guides enticed me into retrying, but again I simply cannot find the second stack of dragons. What are the exact directions??? Thanks.

E-dark magic-Master of mind-Master of pain-corrupted soil

E-summoning-master of life-master of earthblood-fog veil (arantir has this as starting skill )

E-sorcery-arcane training-mana regen-counterspell

E-defence-evasion-protection-cold bones

E-logistics-scouting-pathfiding-snatch

mark of necro-eternal servitude-banshee howl

Maybe. Are you going for high score? if not, outnumber him. Also it's hard to get to level 35. i used sges to get to level 32, and i sacrificed troops. But i'm not good in skill decision

Errr...
I always take those skills and I'm really successive with necros XD
But I hate them, even thogh my friends do not believe what I can do with some skelies and a pack of zombies XD

Exp. Dark Magic- Master Of Pain; Corrupted Soil (other are useless cuz you gona frenzy/puppet XD)
Exp. Summ. Magic (this is a must have not a humble addition, dude :/)- Master of Conjuration; Master of Life
Exp. Enl.- Scholar, Arcane Exaltation
And now something really controversiaal:
Exp. Sorcery- Some dudes say- take attack! I say- I wanna Hypnotise, Frenzy, Summon Phoenix, Frenzy, Vampier Phonexin, Frenzy, Summon Avatar of Death, Frenzy,Summon Elemetnals, Frenzy than give those petty undead a chance to attack ... (ofc. I frenzy less )- choose perks by your own cuz every is quite good...
Exp. Logistics- no perks. (sometimes Pathfinding-War path) Logistics is to move not to perk XD
That's all...
Try this strategy and I tell you- you will rock XD. But it would be better if you invent your own. Then it would be funnier for you...

Now- to the creatures (the most defensive dudes)
- Skellie Warrior( put him close to Liches he will peserve them form range attacks)
- R(i)ot Zombie- no need to explain -_-
- Poltergaist (as well)
- Vampire Lord (Torpor sux with no Soldier's Luck)
- Lich King (look: Zombie and Polter)
- Banshee (becasue she is pink XD... Death Wail isn't so super but is:
1. funny
2. can harm some low level dudes quite nice especially if you have that peachy set from the Arantir's mission (Phoenix and Avi are taking care of high levels)
- Spectre Dragon (cuz I like to have similar creatures on the battlefield... Moreover is he more durable then Ghosty)

That's all. Before balmming me- try and see by your own...

What I did was a combination of dark and summoning. Make sure to destroy his ballista and keep frenzying/puppeting his units, then summon an avatar of death. If you feel your army is not enough you have so many towns, just combine armies from haven or turn them to undead. You will probably have many death knights too.
Oh there's also a ring of speed somewhere in the map. That should help a bit.
