better strategy for Http Isle of the Damned

Post by Graakhatmeksha » May 19th, 2019, 11:24 am

Isle of the Damned is hard on the top difficulty, but I just beat it early with a different strategy. I recalled the merman with the lightning trident and the mermaid initiate (both developed in the Bay of Pearls) and sent them north along the coast picking off a few undead and gaining experience. I recruited lots of footpads and one thug and then sent Konrad north on turn 2 along with all walkers. (The first two merfolk I sent south to grab towns). Defeated northern lich on turn 10, recruited a full keep of additional units, picked up Moremiru in the LAST temple, and defeated the southern lich on turn 22.

version 1.14.8 (6) Deleted the replay out of habit because no-one ever wanted it before. Next time I will save.

I replayed it using the same strategy in order to provide the replay attached. First lich fell on turn 9 and second on turn 20, top difficulty.

Nice divide and conquer play :) Do post to the thread I linked, though, so other players can find your replay!
