Rumour has it that a couple of dark priests are performing dark rituals. Very dark rituals. There have even been several cats reported missing recently. Understandably, your citizens are more than a little concerned about this. They have turned to you for help and are willing to give what they have in order to compensate you for your efforts.

Description

A fairly easy map that requires moving your camps right from the start to give direct attack routes to the Leaders Camp and avoid a lot of costly battles.

Along with Witch of The Swamp it should be a staple XP farming map for any player. You will find this map rather often when you do short adventure searches and is fairly cheap to purchase from the trade system.

Guide

Refer to the Combat page for more information.
Generally, the lowest quantity/cost troop combination is listed but higher cost/value troops can be substituted to boost the odds toward losing 1-2 less troops. So use of elite soldiers, longbowman and crossbowman is at your discretion but most likely will not change the outcome very much depending for any particular battle. Likewise, more troops than listed can be sent if capacity of the general permits but in most cases will not affect the outcome.

Sector 2 Move as far NWW as possible so your general is near the entrance to Sector 2.
Note: You can skip the second camp (30 Priest + 30 Shadowsneaker) and just send 60 Recruits + 140 Soldiers against the third camp (30 Cultists + 20 Shadowsneaker + 10 Firedancer). This will take out both camps, saving you a few minutes for no extra loss.

The Dark Priest lvl36 , 1 BH General, 2 Blocks

Blocks

  • Note: A player can use the blocking technique on the first camp (either type A or B) to allow second general to kill leader camp. By doing so, you will save between 14R-15R (using block A and B respectively):

Block A) - You will need to place your generals as can be seen in the picture. Once both generals are ready to attack (units assigned: general A with 1R and general B with 40R+160S or 200R), attack camp A (20thug and 10 Dogs) with general A. Wait for 5 - 7 seconds and then immediately send general B to attack camp B (Skunk, 20 Thug, 20 Ranger, 20 Dog).

DP block placement

Block B) - Use the same placement as block A, but you MUST' use a normal general as general A, 'and veteran general as general B. Unit assignments are:

General A: 18R 40S -> camp A 20 Thug, 10 Dog

General B: 90R 160S -> Skunk, 20 Thug, 20 Ranger, 20 Dog

Send general A to camp A, wait 5- 7 seconds and then immediately send general B. What should happen is that your general A will battle camp A before general B get intercepted. This will allow general B (your veteran general) to attack directly to leader camp, and destroy the camp before general A kills camp A. The result would be both camps will be destroyed and sector 1 cleared, with general A and his units left untouched. (No unit lost nor injured general).
