In the multiplayer menu there are several choices. You should be able to play Human vs. AI or Hotseat even if you don't have the correct version. Experiment with the factions there.

Have Li'sar pick it up, both because Konrad will get the sword of fire and because Li'sar needs a ranged attack. The combination of scepter and skirmisher also makes her valuable for assassinations.

Of course; every unit has weaknesses that can be exploited. The pikeman, however, can take a beating from archers, making it a great frontline unit against the rebels.

Walking Corpses aren't very useful in packs, no units are. Walking Corpses have defined resistances: Can take cold, pierce, and blade without much problem, however holy, impact, and fire damage take their toll on this unit. It is because of this trait that it is not a good idea to recruit Walking C...

Undead mirror is pointless. The undead simply don't have any units that work against themselves.

I would personally prefer an option to make the campaigns less focused on high-level units... I can steamroll an AI one on one, but I get slaughtered in the campaigns. But the point of campaigns are to build up a story with continuity of characters and training veterans. They wouldn't be much fun i...

Likewise, if an enemy unit is close to levelling, attack him with something big to make sure it dies before it can level/heal. I'd disagree. Taking "something big" to be a leveled unit, it would award multiple experience points to the target should it survive. Typically, two level 1 units deal more...

I know it's theoretically possible to get a powerful enough army to kill Mal-Ravanal at his capitol. I was just wondering if it was actually possible; it would cut the campaign rather short, wouldn't it? Does he run away before you strike the final blow or something?

I don't have much experience with drakes vs. undead, but I think you can use skirmishers as distractions and for killing shielded dark adepts. They're probably also your best defense at night time, as they're chaotic and have better defense than drakes. Rush at day with fighters and burners, have a ...

With a holy berserker you could probably kill Mal-Ravanal at his city :wink:

Which leads me to ask: is it possible to kill him in that scenario? Has anyone ever done it?

I usually give one to a cavalryman, one to a to-be-halberdier (for awesomeness against walking corpses), and one to Gweddry. I plan on experimenting with giving an amulet to a silver mage, though.
