Help needed with Legend of wemere: costly revenge

Post by dELFador » May 31st, 2009, 4:33 am

So basically, I tried it 3 times, and lost 3 times.
I'm playing on medium 1.7.0 and starting with 100 gold.
at the beginning I have:
2 elf champions (level 3)
2 elf avengers (level 3)
1 elf high lord (level 3)

on my recall list I have:
2 elf champions (level 3)
1 elf marshal (level 3)
1 elf outrider (level 3)
7 elf marksmen (level 2)
6 elf heroes (level 2)
5 elf rangers (level 2)
2 elf captains (level 2)
1 elf rider (level 2)
and a bunch of level 1's, 2 of which are shamans.

Without even remembering the specific scenario... you don't have ANY leveled shamans (druids, shydes, sorceresses)? Not a single one? I wonder how you could even make it this far!

Indeed - levelled shamans are UTTERLY vital in this campaign because

A few shydes and sylphs, and you can mow most things down.

in case you don't know, all fairy type elves refused to join me. and the dwarves left to, all thanks to landar. :evil:

and I do realize how important leveled shamans are. they were the reason that I could “break the siege.” :wink:

I had 2 sorcerers, 2 shydes, 1 druid, and 1 enchantress, but they didn't come with me.

apology accepted
I just beat it (on the last turn, and lost a loyal champion, a loyal avenger, a marksman, 2 heroes.)
the minimum starting gold was definitely that, the minimum.



uhhh, when i start elvish assasins, the objective says kalenz reaches the signpost. but I don't have any units to move, except galenor, the scout.

Wait, there aren't any Shydes? I just played this level in 1.6.1 or 1.6.2 and was able to recall all of them. Are they gone in 1.7? I can actually see how that would make sense story-wise, but given the enemy's huge amount of gold, it seems pretty unfair to take them away.

Mostly because with the shydes/sorceresses/sylphs etc, Cledodil's warning on costly revenge that this will be a bloodbath was misleading-it's a saurian bloodbath because
elvish mobility is far superior in the terrain. So gamewise for them refusing to join was
dictated for balancing reasons.
Storywise we also discussed this, the different opinions being that for the fairies there was no
need for that on the one hand and on the other hand since Kalenz was going to fight, maybe Cleodil should be on his side too. At the end that objection was brushed aside under the
understanding that this was going to be a low-risk military expedition.

You should NOT have the fairies in Elvish Assasins(except Cleodil); this should be so both for balancing as well as for story reasons(this is an unexpected assasination attempt, and the fairies are dispersed ; it takes time to recall them and this is done in the next scenario).
You should have though Andulias, Tameril-Isimeril and Arkildur as well as Cleodil in Elvish Assasins

In Costly Revenge I did have access to my fairies and created a slaughter under the saurians with them(good defense when compared to other units and good attack and mobility.) My game version is 1.6.1. Is it intended to have the fairies in this scenario or not?

no fairies is a change in 1.7.0 ;) it is ok to have them in 1.6.1...

In LoW I make sure to level as many shamans to Sylphs and Shydes as possible. Shydes are pretty much the most powerfull unit in the Campaign and very needed. They are worth the trouble and huge amounts of XP. A single Sylph is a lot more dangerous and usefull, than two or three avengers.

Oh...and I though I'd done well with 3 sylphs slaying the saurians in costly revenge, after all the effort I went to in 1.6.

That is fairly annoying to know, though I suppose the title of the scenario would make sense now
