Prepairing for Alric fifth map, Orc campain - Spoilers


The first stronghold town you have to conquer is the key.  It is there he will generally go when he first starts out.  To slow him down, before you take the last town, make sure to buy everything from both stronghold towns and ship them to the second town (upgraded).  Have your strongest secondary hero there.  Also, make sure you have plenty of funds left over after also (will get to this in a bit).

After you main takes the last town, rush him to the 2nd academy town, buying all you can there, and head him straight to the academy town in the middle.  If Alric skips your stronghold town, hopefully you have just enough to weaken him a lot, but few enough that he still attacks so you can do some major damage and slow him down a bit.

Once your main makes it to the middle academy town (if alric isn't already there though with portals it should be close).  Put everything from that town on him.  If the orc army did enough damage, you should have a big enough army to take him out.  If instead he goes for your other stronghold town, get the units and use the teleporter to intercept him.  If you can time it where it's about 2 days before a new week, you can buy the next weeks worth of troops for whichever town he heads for to help cut him down more.  Use caravans like mad.  Even sending the necro troops if nothing else.  Just do as much damage with them as possible.  Even if he totally destroys them as long as they have killed even 10% of their numbers it will help.  Just keep throwing your secondaries at him, doing as much damage as possible till your main has the creatures they need to send him packing.

Ok everybody should know by now that Stronghold has issues in the beginning with ranged and caster units.  Not much can be done about this at first.  Ballista, triple balista, first aid, flaming arrows all help..but won't really help THAT much in the beginning.

To overcome this, there are some key elements.  Shamans are one.  Slow/haste can really tip the scale.  Of course a tripple flaming arrow balista can really help, with tents replacing any lost units (with the skill of course).

Since trappers don't help against either ranged or casters, leave all but maybe a couple (if possible) out.  Just to rush up and block shooters if nothing else, or steal a retal from shooters/casters.

Fear My roar, call of blood, or hordes anger are a MUST, as they will typically go for your Centaurs, and you need to save as many of those as possible.

Tactics helps, a lot.  Frenzy is good too....

Goblin Shamans are a risk, but possibly worth it if there are a LOT of them vs casters.  (At least 20-30 to 1).  Otherwise keep your goblins out.

Earth daughter no retaliate is great against them.  Just remember to slow/haste first.

Those 'useless' wyverns can also help vs ranged and casters.  With tent skill and their own regen, you probably won't even loose any.

If you have enough other units, also leave out your centaurs.  Rather loose the warriors then them.  Though the double attack ones can be great in the end battle.

I never like using ballista in homm5 campagin for the simple reason that sometimes you start the map without one and/or town. Even worse , sometimes there's not a single town or machine shop in the map. When that happens , a triple flaming ballista is as good as 1 goblin...oh wait not even.
I only played heroic and such risk isn't something I would try.

I think its time Nival wake up and give heroes a ballista/tent/ammo by default if you have siege skill. Maybe like ballista only if you have ballista perk , tent if tent perk and both etc.

summon boat spell in the second misson of stronhold?!

Quote:
boy, the second mission is a hassle. Even though you're supposed to talk with the clans, they are all hostile to you until you manage to reach their town. Both the brown and the teal tribe have heroes with sizeable armies running around. I managed to scare the brown one off, but he and his army were lost when I talked to his chief. Joy. Now I have the teal hero chasing after Kujin with a huge army consisting of 19 bloody cylops and big numbers of anything else.
Even if I'd managed to breach the first garrison sooner (which took me a whole month, and I still had only like a third of most creatures there, except Wvyerns), I don't think I could beat that one.
By the way, on the first try, that hero even came through the garrison (without having to fight it, they are allied) and stomped down everything I had at that point.


Hi guys, anyone can help me with the info about how to obtain a summon boat spell? cant seem to get it anywhere. been struggling for hours, i even went and to reset my skills, does navigations skill include the spell? help appreciated.

Have a great evening.

Go to town and buy an amulet, it's the building required before you build wyverns.

Final mission, final battle

I'm in the last mission of the stronghold campaign, I think I have played it too long because Galib has too many troops. I lost when I tryed to kill him. Where can I find the golems someone has mentioned, if I remember correctly? And which creatures should I replace with golems.
Or should I just sit and gather troops and build the other stronghold town up until I have zounds of troops? My Gotai is lvl 29, he has 5 pieces of dragons power set. He has these skills:

Exp War machines: ballista - triple ballista
exp attack: battle frenzy - stunning blow- retribution
exp leadership: recruitment - aura of swiftness - battle elation
exp shout: shout of rage - shout training - mighty shout
basic shatter light - weaken light
and the racial and the three perks for it.

What you could do is check your artifact merchants every week for the last three pieces of the dragon power set. After that you get one cyclops every day. Just wait a while and it will be easy to beat him.

I got the full set now, but I'm getting annoyed because enemy's secondary heroes are capturing my towns when I'm not around. I unlearned shatter light and learned Basic Luck and magic resistance, but I think I'll just have to gather millions of troops and try to crush Galib. But it's already month 6, so I'm a slow player.
EDIT: I won it, no problems anymore.

try not to lose many creatures in the battles that are before u get to the castle, and also remember u can hire some creautures in those dwellings that are around. i dont remember much else about 1st mission but it shouldnt be too hard, thats why its the prologue ^^
jus go back and hire more creatures or jus start over and try to lose as less creatures as u can .

it has been asked a lot of times. you need to build some structure that lets you buy an item that makes your hero elegible to cast adventure spells (only thing ur hero needs apart from the item its a level requirement). if you want names just go back a few pages and youll see your same question answered.

I'm stuck in the third mission.

i can't get out of my starting area. I have conquered it thoroughly but when trying to attack the demons that are on the road my hero always stops just a few steps before them like waiting for a cut-scene but nothing happens.

Is there supposed to be a cut-scene here or is there something I'm missing?

Yeah, there is a cutscene. No, it should not trigger everytime. That is puzzling.
