Default Leaving some enemies back in Darion

Hello, all. Not sure how active these forums are, but I'm new to the game and thought I'd give it a shot.

This is my first game (Normal Paladin) and I've cleared out most of Darion. I killed the Turtle boss long ago but haven't gone to Freedom Islands yet (other than a quick scouting run). I've cleared out all of Darion except for King's Tournament, Cursed Child, Rezo's Tower, the horseman circus tent guards, and maybe 15-20 enemy stacks in Arlania, including Drammina (sp? the Dwarf Hero). Normally I like to clear out an area before moving on, but I'm wondering if I should "save" the rest of Arlania for when I come back to enter the Creiston Mines.

Drammina is "match" and everything else except Rezo's Staff is "weak" or "very weak." Oh and the horseman guards are...very strong? I'm not sure.

I have one of those "runes after 50 fights" items, so I thought maybe I should pretty much clear things out to get it as far along as possible. As far as rage-building enemies, the mage's tower provides its own and there's nothing near Cursed Child. The Tournament has the horseman guards and a couple of enemies just inside Arlania.

Off-hand, I thought I'd keep clearing things out and leave for the Isles just before 7 AM. The other thought I had, though, was to save a few mobs for sacrifice/resurrect to increase my stack of Royal Thorns or some other army type I'll find in the Freedom Isles.

Any thoughts? Thanks in advance.

It really depends on what you're going for. Some players on these boards are focused on getting the highest score possible, so they attempt to complete everything with a minimum of travel and retracing of their steps. For myself, I prefer a more casual game and approach clearing areas the way you're doing.

As you've pointed out, one advantage of keeping a few easier fights available is that they provide excellent opportunities to refill your rage before going into a much tougher fight. And rest assured, there are tougher fights, especially Rezo's tower, the guards at the circus tent, some of the fights in the mines.

Also, later in the game you'll have reasons to come back to Darion, so it's not like you won't have later opportunities to clear out everything - perhaps after you've found additional items that give a bonus after 50 fights.

Thanks for the reply, Sir Whiskers. I'm certainly not going for a high score (given that I'm playing on Normal), but that said, I am trying to economize time and troop losses. Not a "no losses" campaign, but other than one or two fights (plus the tutorial) where I lost 1-3 allies, I've gone no losses. I don't know how much longer that will reasonably continue.

It's a good point about finding another "after XX fights" item. Another consideration, if I understand correctly from these forums, is that you get more XP for your Spirits of Rage if you fight tougher opponents. On the other hand, maybe I'll be wanting to level a different Spirit by that time.

I'd like to see if I can get Drammina no losses, and maybe pick up leadership flags to give myself the best possible chance in the Freedom Isles, but sounds like I should leave some enemies in Arlania for later.

Thanks again.

Rezo's tower you should do later. ITs difficulty is beyond this area

Yes that and Cursed Child seemed way out of scope. I scouted out the top of the Tower just to see how bad it would be. Yikes!

Also leaving Rezo tower and couple of other enemy is ok, but you`we also could leave bunch of enemy and just go for maps from lucky James without beating him, buy it for 100k gold as soon as you have enough and return later to beat him. With maps run behind Dramina and scout all mines, and got beyond to Hadar and gather all free treasures flags . . . and get Lina rage spirit (when you get those maps it`s possible to go all the way to Demonis, Elf islands and Undead lands to gather free stuff from ground, and get quests/shrines . . .) And then get back with maybe better units items leadership and clear starting locations. As this is you`re first play i suggest just go around and try all units, spells and other stuff. Have fun and later go again maybe on hard, and other hero class to see how they work.

And do you play basic game, or some mod ?

This will certainly be my only play through this game, unfortunately, especially as KB:AP awaits. I have a feeling that going everywhere will require lots of failed troop evasion and reloading which I'm not sure I'm up for; I don't seem to be very good at it. It also seems like there are certain "guards" that by design are meant to keep you away from areas (e.g., Darion circus tent), even if they can be defeated by clever/agile players.

Don't get me wrong-- I'm fond of scouting around grabbing flags and freebies, but getting to undead lands at level 10 seems to be counter to the design intent of the game, even if it is technically possible.

I could be wrong-- maybe the developers intended it, but perhaps it's not my play-style...?

Avoiding enemy troops (kiting) is much harder in the Legend since there are quests/battles you have to do before going to other areas :
1) turtle battle to get to wastern islands
2) lucky james mines to get map
3) fighting in mines to get dwarf prince quest, i dont remember names
4) free dwarf prince, to get quest for elf lands (i`m not sure you can go to undead lands on 10 lvl, because for that you have to free dwarf prince to get there)
5) kill karador to get entrance to orc labyrinth . . .
In AP/CW it`s doable to kite all the way to reha/shetera island and return to first location debir on 20+ lvl with bunch of gold, leadership, items, great units . . . and then start playing (that is 1 of ways to go no loss impossible). So as i said just play and have fun

LMAO, that's crazy...and awesome that folks have figured out how to do that.

For me, though, "playing and having fun" is more about going more-or-less sequentially through the game, experiencing as much content as possible, and hopefully "beating" the game at some point.

That`s not crazy, you haven`t seen a part of it As you said this is first playthrough (of many to follow hopefully ) so there is allot of things to find out, and learn.
In future it would be nice to get some multiplayer and possible to compare our skills against other players, not just AI. Until then have fun
