Re: SX RPG Expert Strategies?

Hey Ice, Yeah, look at this post: http://forums.wesnoth.org/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=39567&start=45#p563486, I attached the original and a fixed version of the replay - the Modified_Solo_Victory_Replay.gz is the right one. Fixing this is really easy as I explained in that post. Watch out for the ...

Re: Is this map balanced?

Well, I don't know much about map development, but I'd argue that as soon as you create a MP map that's not symmetric in key aspects, then it can easily turn into chaos. There is a bridge in the west, but only deep water in the east. That makes it impossible for a faction with non-flying / non-swimm...

Re: SX RPG Expert Strategies?

Regarding creep strength late in the game, I just did a little experiment ... I reloaded the game on turn 95 - that was right before killing that Acamanthus Fire King - and kept that boss alive for another 30 turns. The first about 10 turns or so, I did not need any healing potions. But they got a b...

Re: SX RPG Expert Strategies?

Oh, cool! Looking forward to re-play all the maps with these new changes once they're available. Choosing a ranged unit, of course. About that new loot that enemies drop, is that "good stuff"? If I remember correctly, then you said something about them dropping weapons a while ago - but I ...

Re: SX RPG Expert Strategies?

Roi Danton proudly presents ... Wizard of War, Expert Death Mode, Solo The most difficult thing about this map is figuring out which unit, resistances and weapons you want. This was about my fifth or so attempt at playing this solo, already tried unsuccessfully on the last two weekends. After I fig...

Re: SX RPG Expert Strategies?

Well, don't forget that magic can only deal arcane, cold and fire damage - on a map like ToB, you need high impact damage to effectively target Eye Demons and Fire Titans. Against their 80% resistance, attack spells are pretty much useless - summoned demons do a little better if you use them as suic...

Re: SX RPG Expert Strategies?

Cool, I'm glad that you liked it 8) Am I really the first person who won Temple of Bones solo on Expert? Love your plan of adding a new map - there's only one for me left to win at the moment: Wizard of War. I have also played Evil Deed recently - and this map really needs some "Nightmare"...

Re: SX RPG Expert Strategies?

Hey, this happened to me so many times until I finally figured it out .... Each AI leader spawns 1-2 new mini-bosses every 10 turns and they're also stronger than those that you've seen before. In addition to that, newly spawned creeps also get stronger every 10 turns. In theory, you could hold out ...

Re: SX RPG Expert Strategies?

Yeah its the backdoor of that castle, i did it on purpose for there comes the exp train. Happy exp farmers Inc. :lol: It is still a mistake to do that with more than two units. And even two units should only be used if the unit that's supposed to pick up the resist ring needs a bodyguard. I would e...

Re: SX RPG Expert Strategies?

Eagle, is that Cantar at the back entrance of the Negro Castle? Looks like that from the screenshot. If it is, then you should not have taken the path through these caves with all your units. There is a single item to be found in these caves: the ring of resistance. So you only need to send whicheve...

Re: When should I recruit bowmen instead of spearmen?

Well, I don't have much experience playing MP with Loyalists, but I do have some playing against them. I mostly play survival maps, but have some decent experience with Isar's Cross - Rebels are my favorite faction. When playing Rebels, Spearmen are a lot more difficult to deal with than Bowmen - mo...
