YEESSSSSS!

Post by Elvish_Pillager »

Finally, I've beaten The Seige of Elensefar in Easy mode!

:)

...without letting any of my units die, even once. It was a difficult task.

Here's the replay. I can post the replays from the rest of the scenarios, too, if anyone's interested.

I assume no cheating / saveloading / etc. What exactly was your policy on saving? Every turn, every five turns, halfway through the scenario, or never?

There was no loading of saves at all in this scenario except on turn 3; I became annoyed at playing the first two turns the same way over and over again, so I saved at the beginning of turn 3 and tried starting from that save multiple times.
I did save a few times, but it was inconsequential.

Send you other replays
And I swear to defend
And we'll fight to the end
And I swear that I'll never be taken alive
And I know that we'll stand
And we'll fight for our land
And I swear that my bairns will be born free

The isle of aduin and the bay of pearls are corrupted (probably because of the game version), and the battle before the siege on elesenfar is missing

Why do you preffer more experience than a light mage equiped with a holy sword?

There is probably more of a chance of people dying on Isle of the Damned...

1) You have level 1 units in the Isle, level 2 on the Peninsula. Much easier to survive with.
2) A White Mage's HP is really wimpy.
3) White Mage whose traits I pick > generic no-upkeep White Mage. I'm sure I could level up a mage pretty easily, too.

Now that is impressive! :shock:

I see you changed your location too... what about the scenarios between Siege of Elensefar and that place? Have you completed them, too?

As I watched the replays I noticed you used only elves. Why so? Is it better to have neutral than lawful units, or are for instance horsemen too fragile against ranged attacks?

Yes, I've now reached the Dwarven Doors with 0 losses. Yes, that means I've completed Crossroads, Princess, VoD, Gryphons, Abez, Winter, and Mountain Pass.

Horsemen die to archers and anything they attack (because of charge), and Mages are fragile in general. I did acquire a Silver Mage in Northern Winter, and I have plans for Elrian as well (he is still a Mage, but has lots of XP and level 1s are easy to level up.) I think I might retry Mountain Pass becasue I want more XPs... Anyway, Theives are even more fragile than Mages, Mermen don't work on land, and there's nothing else to recruit but Elves.

Ok... maybe I should try that too.

Good luck on the Dwrven doors, I just played it and I just can't imagine how it could be won without losses... :shock:

On the other hand I didn't propably do enough XP-hunting before that, and lost some units like a Paladin to stupid attacks in the Mountain Pass.. I guess my problem in the game is that I'm playing too sloppily and letting some good units die to stupid mistakes.

Look out, it can be harder than HttT Hard in some places.

I was having trouble too, but that's partly because I was making a huge mistake... next time I'll fight in daylight, not at night!

Oh, and BTW, why are you using version 0.8.7 of the game instead of 0.8.8? Is it more stable or something?

The problem in replays is that you won't see the unit's traits. That's a thing I'd like to see too...

Also some of the leveled units are ones I don't yet know so well by just the looks so it's a bit hard to see what they are... but it's guessable.
