Re: Legend of Wesmere - Human Alliance (Hard)

Shoot. I used a save from 1.10.0, not 1.10.1. I'd forgotten about that stuff going around about how the horse archer wasn't meant to be included and got removed. I tried doctoring the save by removing all the references to the horse archer. I'm not sure if it's that simple, but it could work I guess...

Re: need help with LoW Costly Revenge

I remember I lost most of my loyal units the first time I played through the campaign as well. I came into this scenario with just Landar and the minimum gold and got absolutely annihilated. It's really worth it to do everything you can to keep all of your loyal units alive, even going back to repla...

Re: Legend of Wesmere - Human Alliance (Hard)

After looking at the save and watching the replay, there's a couple pieces of advice I think could help. First, it is really helpful to hold the waterline in the northwest. You are horribly outgunned in this scenario. The only way to balance the odds is by maintaining a ridiculous defensive disparit...

Re: need help with LoW Costly Revenge

vicente, I'm confused. The elves have to spend 2 mp per frozen forest hex in 1.8 as well. The point is that saurians have to spend 4 mp. Since 6/2 is 3 and 7/4 is truncated to 1 in computer math, the elves have a 3:1 advantage optimally. That could vary with traits and such, but at worst elves have ...

Re: need help with LoW Costly Revenge

Glad to hear it. Pretty fun to overcome such ridiculous odds. LoW has a few of those which is why it's one of my favorite campaigns.

Re: need help with LoW Costly Revenge

I'm not sure if folks still have trouble with this scenario, but here's a strategy you might try if you're low on cash. It accomplishes a few things. First, it puts you in a supremely defensible position where a small army is just as effective as a large army. Second, remember how pissed you were wh...
