Train Elite Archers for encounters facing one or more Abbots and Orc Deserters. Although the Drone Rider specializes against Light Range Units, we found that in this province, they only performed better than Elite Archer in when facing Light Ranged units exclusively.

Train a few Sinister Cerberus for fights against a majority of Abbots. Avouid using them when facing even one Orc Deserter.

Train a few Granite Golems for encounters facing mostly Rangers and Mist Walkers.

NOTE: After the first few provinces the Rangers are replaced by Bandits. Both are Light Range Units but the Bandits move 3 spaces and attack 4 spaces away.

TACTICS TO CONSIDER

Because the Orc Deserters like to hide in corners and behind obstacles, it is often better to use Light Range Units in encounters featuring mostly Abbots and 2 or fewer Orc Deserters.

   

Fights with large combinations of all 3 enemy types will be the most difficult.

We recommend these be catered or fought manually using a mix and match of your fighters according to the obstacles on the battlefield, especially after round 3 of the tournament.

 

 

AUTO-FIGHT

Most tournaments in the first few rounds can be won with auto-fight. This can be a great option for beginners to complete tournament provinces than can be done with goods alone.

For many of the first rounds of fights, if you pick the right units, the fight is easy enough for auto-fight to do as good of a job as manual fighting would do with far less effort.

Of course, choose at your own risk. The more difficult the fight, the more likely it is that you will lose more units with auto-fight than with manual fight.
