No. In fact, the only point in letting it out is so it can beat up the orcs, or to gain experience from it.
It's all fun and games until someone loses a lawsuit. Oh, and by the way, sending me private messages won't work. :/ If you must contact me, there's an e-mail address listed on the website in my profile.

Thieves and dwarves are good. Wizards and archers are bad.

Gryphons are helpful if you have a lot of money.

I used to be able to send one gryphon down to do the job, but now that the lower mage seems to have some more money now and can hire lots of his own gryphons, I need 2 or 3 so 1 can make it through. Most recently I didn't recall my army or even try to attack the top mage until the gryphon made it to the bottom. After that, the level is fairly easy because you can recruit the rest of your army from the two middle castles (mage 1 and the Orc).

Hi,

some advices:

1 fight birds only when you could get side to side from them, and try to hit as much as possible (with great fighters like Li'sar, Konrad, elve hero, ... only use melee !)

2 use fast unit to reach the yeti then go away ASAP ;), it will be usefull against Orcs a bit later, then reach the temple in the south ASAP, when your forces are near Orcist castle.

3 usefull unit (full levelled up): dwarve lord, grand knight, gryphon rider, white mage and just the four hero of Wesnoth is enough (in easy in m y case)
