Clear.

Clear.

None?

Well I've looked at the 1.15.7 version and it looks easier? Haven't played though.
Because in reality, you just need Wraith tank or get lucky at Blue Orc Leader (Borth) recruits no Goblin Knight or Orcish Crossbowman and he attacks you so you can kill him fast.
Still unsure because I maximize earning experience on the scenario before this to get 2 Dread bats, 1 upgraded master (Necromancer) and 4 Blood Bats

(8) Was there any event that caused you to lose the game and forced you to reload or restart the scenario?
  • I got tired on trying to save all Blood Bats that I just let them go become Dead Bats.
  • I tried to not kill Borth so he summons mobs for me to kill, but I can't kill all mobs that way so he had to perish.
  • I also tried not to kill Borth (again) but kill P'Gareth (Green Orc Leader) so it may get easier to farm mobs but......... well Borth is very aggresive and I lack the firepower to safely do that so ....
  • Orcish Assassin poisons living units and sometimes I restart if they poison enough damage dealing bats.
  • Any Dread Bat that dies and more than 2 Blood Bats.
  • When I somehow finished early, I had to restart this scenario to farm it :lol: ...
  • Sometimes P'Gareth summoned Goblin Pillagers and K'Vark got a Troll and Orcish Crossbowman army that I had to restart.... I forgot what to do once it got safe so my units died .... :lol:
  • Basically when I got overrun with Orcs because I wasn't able to "assassinate" Borth
I basically needed 2 Dread Bats that's already leveled and not 1 exp away because I needed their damage.
So I over leveled the 2 scenarios that you can summon bats.

I skip reviewing the other scenarios before this because it's nearly the same.

The replays for bat level up
