Thanks. I think the hint shouldn't just repeat what Lord Bayar said but explain it in different words (and perhaps in out-of-world terms, which are inappropriate for dialog), so I changed "defeat" to "reduce to 0HP". And I made the second part of the sentence more generic since I intend it to teach players that dialogs may contain hints. (The help says that explicitly as of a month or two ago, actually, but still.) See https://github.com/wesnoth/wesnoth/pull/4329, what do you think?

For 1.16, heh? It's great. Just have it there as a note. The knights are a big help in the final battle so a hint can't hurt. Something entirely unrelated, why didn't i have dwarvish guardsmen in my recruit list after i met the dwarves? Was this a bug or were they intentionally removed?

New PRs are created against master, but I'll backport it to 1.14 too after merging to master. To get Guardsmen you need to save the ally leader in The Lost General (that's documented in the walkthrough, and in the HttT secrets).

Maybe we should add a hint on easy, either a narrator's message at the end or by listing it as a bonus in the objectives.
