Re: Newbie here

1. How do I heal? My white mages only attack. I tried atking my own units with white mages but that doesn't work. Can someone give very specific directions? You can't heal people during your turn. What you need to do is move your wounded unit(s) beside the mage and then end your turn. Just before y...

I meant "big" as in something that's able to kill it before it levels. If it's only 1 xp away from a level, you may want to use your biggest guy for the best chance to kill it. If it's several xp away, using several low-levels may be enough. Just don't use it as target practice for your elvish shama...

Good tips! I would add to the list to pay attention to experience, for your guys and for the enemies. If your guy is badly wounded but close to getting a level, you may be able to send him out to blast some random walking corpse or something and get him healed faster than sending him off to a villag...

Is it even possible to kill all the leaders without killing 25 units along the way? I haven't tried to do it but it seems like there's way too many guys on the field to avoid them all while killing the leaders. Unless maybe your army is all fast horsemen and gryphon riders...

Sitting on the town is no good. Your strategy is the one I used though... go into the snow plains. Their defense sucks there and they walk very slowly. Give them a turn or two to walk deeper into the snow. Then attack the heck out of whatever lizard is most alone. Attack from the side so his buddies...

The current description is accurate as far as the characters understand it at the start of the campaign. Well, OK, Delfador knows the truth :wink: but anyway if you can't fib in the campaign description, you might as well say you can't fib in the dialogue either, so Delf has to spill the beans right...

I like the idea of separating single-player and MP campaigns (and map packs and unit packs and etc), but rating campaigns seems more trouble than it's worth. I can usually tell on the first or second map whether the designer has put a reasonable amount of effort into it or not, based on the map layo...

A couple suggestions I haven't seen mentioned yet... if you tell the thieves to support you when you invade the city, you may be able to surround the orc leader with thieves and backstab him to death. It doesn't always work, but thieves are hard to hit in a castle. Just make sure there's not too man...

Actually I got through that scenario with no advanced units at all, I'd lost them all on the previous level while they were trying to escape. This is on medium difficulty. Basically I ignored the guys in the northeast corner, sent a few spearmen southeastish to distract the guys there, and sent a fe...
