Use the memory mentor to get Shatter Dark Mass Slow and PM/Frenzy where the worst problem. Slow can be countered to some degree with Earth/Sky Daughters (unless the hero PM's your centaurs and kills the whole stack with a lucky shot...).
Also, waiting another week or two can really make a huge difference since you have quite the growth with 2 towns, the tear of asha and the bunch of dwellings on the map.

Either way, that battle wasn't nearly as epic as Orlando. I lost the first time I tried, but not without taking down most of his troops other than a few hundred gargs. Two weeks later (skipped one week because it had a bad effect), I crushed him losing barely anything other than my Earth Daughter stack because he got lucky with PMing my Centaurs.


Did that. Waited for another two or three weeks, during wich I found the Tears (ergo didn't really profit from them, just smth to kill the time, until I outgrew him). Seems that programers don't like us, rushers...(took Necro on day 3 he he ) So yes, of course as soon as I saw he had dark I erased defense at the mentor, took Shutter Dark, but I still had collosal losses, with army approx twice as big as described in previos post. So, given taht there were no post on that mission, couldn't have imagined that I'll have that psycho coming after me (actually, yes, I did wonder, where the hell is Alaric if I only have to take the town, but eventually concluded that Kujin was gonna talk Godai out of vengeance, silly me ) I barely had time to caravn all Titans& RR's from all Academy cities, all I had left of Orcs were 500+ Warmongers 37 Cyclops, 150+ Chieftains, 600+ Goblins, and of course I sent a secondary hero with starting armies to "scan" Alaric. Mass Haste? Thank you very much, good afternoon again mister Mentor ) Expert Shatter Light, ultimeta skill and ability, all orcs started with level 2 blood rage, and took them to move one square to take on the third. It wasn't even human what I did to him...

heh, didn't even take Shatter Light. After the though Wizard, Alaric was a pushover. The only annoying part was him taking my lousy defended town the second day after he showed up, with Gotai obviously beeing a few days away.

In second map, on heroic, teal hero comes running at you somewhere at the start of second month. And he carries 9 cyclops and throngs of other critters. Jeez.

Luckily, turn or two before I managed to beat garrison, and managed to get brown on my side. And he has almost fully built town (save for upgrades for lv.5, 6 and 7 critters. Stayed in town, teal attacked me (would decimate me easily outside), and as stronghold is mostly walkers I killed his catapult asap, my ballista took almost 600dmg out of it. Then started killing his centaurs, and then he went to attack with wyverns. Didn't last long until he ran away. Lost most, if not all of my centaurs, but other troops are still high in numbers.

Think will now leave this hero with ballista around this town (can prolly defend both towns), and go sailing with Kujin, who really needs some levels first.

Managed to finish mission part 2. It's actually easy once you manage to convince brown to join you. Basically wait until have enough army to beat purple. That's it. Smooth sailing. Aggressive green hero never came - can only via sea, but that seemed blocked by purple. Though, purple did show up only when I went on sea...so, I guess, there is a chance that green could come earlier then. And teal hero came at start of second month as mentioned in previous post...no more teal visits. You guys had more than one visit from teal?

First month is tough though.

I cannot go through the very first map.

I tried to play on "Hard" and "Heroic", but the game stops when some red hero appears on the map, then the focus of the game with maximum zoom centers on my hero, hourglass appear and nothing happens afterwords. The game (software) is not frozen, I can move cursor(hourglass), button can be clicked (but nothing happens) with Alt+F4 I can quit the game, but that is it.

It happens after date: month 2, week 3, day 7.

Anybody had the same problem?


Is that prologue or first map from Stronghold campaign? If it's first map, other hero prolly collected more heads from you, and mission should've ended, but you encountered some glitch.

There a catapult nearby, just use that to destroy the castle (takes 3 shots, 15 ore each).

One quick question. In mission 4, it seems I'm cut off from rest of the map. There's a broken bridge, and river, but just can't seem to find the right spot to summon boat. Anyone knows where it might be? Pretty much the beginning of the map.

EDIT: Nevermind, talked again to Oracle, same text even, but now got teleported to new area.

Yeah, thanks, in the mean time figured it out.

Problem was that the Oracle didn't teleported me anywhere first time I talked to him. Second time it did.

EDIT: Might be because I didn't reach that knowledge crystal before talking to him.

Yeah, orange turns are toooooo long.

Just few turns in so far so not much to tell. Try to get first orange town, it's behind relatively easy garrison - 100 plus of gremlins, both gargoyles and both golems (*old* versions).

I'm afraid I played too slow. 200+ battle mages, 40 titans etc. I guess I'll build up the other town and wait, maybe go find the teaar of Asha.

I've taken war machines for both Kujin and Gotai...and with that it was a bit easier. Raced quickly to there, took only upgraded centaurs (regular ones were on scout who took second stronghold), beat the garrison - one with gremlins, gargoyles and golems, and quickly took academy town. By the end of first week, also took necro town with a bit of a help from Instant Travel spell (crossed over that other garrison - was a bit too tough for first week). Taking necro was great, as it had built capitol. I uploaded the replay of that first garrison fight if interested. Link is in replay upload thread.

Just saying for entire campaign, not just this map. Made it easier.

Btw, end of this 5th map is a bit lame. After finally beating orange and it's frenzy/puppet master/phantom forcers heavy using hero...Alaric shows up lol. And ofcourse, on completly opposite side of map.

Just think it is poorly designed. Map is pretty much easy, save for those last two battles. Basically it's just collecting troops for those final battles and visiting visiting various things, as absolutelly none of the orange heroes (teal and red long time dead) possed any threat.
