Re: Let's Play After the Storm

Whew, that was a really long scenario! (As usual a bit of the dialogues were cut out in the interest of space.) To recap, last time we allied ourselves with someone awesome for a change, the demon lord of the storms Ergea. She and Elynia discussed something in private, though we don’t know what yet....

Re: In Dead Water - who should get a Ring of Strength?

The ring gives +1 to both melee and ranged attacks. Speaking of bats, what's really funny is that bats can also pick up the flaming sword! I guess they hold it in their teeth or something... Well if one doesn't defeat the leader at Flight he drops the ring also at the last scenario. You can give it ...

Re: In Dead Water - who should get a Ring of Strength?

What, no mention of Cylanna in the above post? I think she's the best choice since arcane damage is so great in this campaign, not just against undead but also drakes and those giant scorpions, and she also benefits from some extra HP. Also I think diviners make great frontline units in this campaig...

Re: Invasion from the Unknown 2.0.0 [Wesnoth 1.12]

Ah sorry, that was my mistake in writing the walkthrough entry - it's fixed now.
I guess shadowm really didn't want anyone to proceed without that dead fish!

Re: Help with DM save the King

I feel your pain, saving useless allies is the most annoying thing in Wesnoth :doh: Going west through the mountains is going to be too slow; the fastest route is through the central orc leader- ideally he should be dead around turn 4 or 5. For recruits elves are good because of all the forests, and...

Re: How are the Campaigns meant to be played?

The_Gnat gave some great advice! :eng: Another very important thing especially on Hard difficulty is gold management- generally you need to finish fast and also keep your income as high as possible. It seems counterintuitive but usually the way to finish quickly is to be extremely defensive (form li...

Re: formations in BfW

You could put the level 0s in between two level 1s/veterans, that way even if the level 0 dies no one can move into its spot due to the ZOC of the two surrounding units. Actually this "solid line mixed with fodder" is my standard Wesnoth formation :whistle: An unstoppable formation is the elvish shy...

Back to our (cough) regularly scheduled let's play...

Most of what we have learned comes from ...

Well wolfram alpha is one way to do it! :D :whistle: Ravana's answer is correct! 8) Yes; the ant's first cm is 1/100 of the thread length, then the second cm is 1/2 * 1/100 of the total length...the Nth cm is 1/N*1/100 of the thread length. So at the Nth step the portion of the thread the ant has co...

Yeah, think of all the ruffians that could buy!

An ant starting at the cave wall is trying to reach the spider by crawlin...

Re: Let's Play After the Storm

Thanks for the comments, glad you're liking it!! :D I was really alot (in comparison to your walkthroughts) using Forest spirits, with their high resistances, unability to get poisoned/ drained, and with 47hp (resilient unit), they are better tank units than Spectres. Forest spirits are indeed reall...

Wow, how is it that I've played Wesnoth all this time without realizing that the shades of blue correspond to which level enemy you needed to kill in order to level?! :whistle: There's actually another easy way to tell, which I use - look at the damage calculation graph (the button at the bottom of ...
