User commentary

[Hide user commentary]
Some may find the information in this section subjective or irrelevant.

  • This campaign is dedicated to Tower, with the exception of three Stronghold enemy towns in the second scenario.
  • You need to have very high Knowledge in this campaign because there are some battles with immeasurable amounts of wandering monsters, and in the final scenario towns don't have Mage Guilds. Build Wall of Knowledge in every Tower town you have.
  • In the first scenario, visit every Witch Hut near your starting town, as they provide all Magic School secondary skills.
  • Don't waste mana in the final scenario. Try to kill weaker monsters completely without magic.
  • In the second scenario, defeat the enemies first, as they are way weaker than Rust Dragons.
  • Having captured Stronghold towns, build Hall of Valhalla in each so as to get +3 Attack skill.
  • Prior to the decisive battle against Faerie Dragons in the third scenario, save your progress as there are three monsters stacks, of which only one is your aim.
  • Berserk or Force Field spells will help very much when fighting legions of Nagas in the Faerie Dragons scenario, and, prior to that, mass Slow is essential.
  • Defeat Diamond Golems who guard tomes of spells in the first scenario, as afterwards you will be able to pass garrisons using Dimension Door or Fly spells.
  • Visit Refugee Camps as you will be able to hire a fast creature, like Gold Dragon or Phoenix, who will give you the first turn in battles against most neutral monsters.
