yeah, that whole thief setup was actually van_gm's, he just told me about it and i thought i'd share his knowledge around :)
Tactics for Dark elf/Wiz

Split bowmen into 3 stacks of 5 and put them towards the middle


...and the caravan hero will lighten directly your EFKs. If we take into consideration a spell power 20 (or 21)...
#340 it does seem hard but it's not after a few fights u will find it somewhat easier.
yes , i never faced this kind of caravan before changing to DE

that tactic was originally for level 7
on lvl 7 the enemy wiz/DE won't have that much spell power
at lvl 9 and above they have that much spellpower (about 200 dmg if i remember correctly) it really would be a waste to cast it all on 5-6 bowmen
so at higher level only split them up into 2 groups of bowmen (this way they usually still cast at the bowmen)
also try to place your sprites & efk as often as possible next to your unicorns, this way you will lose 30% less

i'm glad to hear it worked for you too :)

see how the melee group sticks together?
sorry for triple post, i just got another one in:

using druids to block 100 crossbowmen to prevent them from doing crazy damage
of course as always with min ap
hey,i'm a lvl 7 elf and i was wondering what i should do in this level.because everytime i play gb and duels i always lose,so should i just stick with merc quest and hunts?
i didn't do any serious group battles since i was level 5
truth is, there are some factions that just blow you off without leaving you any chance.
Knights have too much ranged firepower + large shield so they just wait and if you come they smash you with aimed shot, griffins and swordsmen.
Dark elves kill your important melee troops too fast before you can start shooting them down and then wipe out what's left with their slower troops.
Necro were already dangerous but with good faction skill + liches they do the same thing knights do.
Barbarians don't have that much more ranged attack power but their orcs shoot before you can so they take you down the same way (staying behind and waiting)
Demons have their succubi to take down your archer, with enough faction skill and gating (and some brain) they leave you nearly no chance too.

So i think for group battles elves are the very weakest faction (although they have multiple attacks)
my advice: don't do group battles at least until you are level 10. Upgraded archer might help a lot, also i have a nasty tactic in mind to cause havoc for that level :) (and can't wait to try it ^^) or if you are very patient (and have fun vs AI/at thief guild) wait for dragons (but i won't advice that)
until then maybe focus on thief guild, you definately need those initiave points as an elf
for Tz-BackStab:

look at how Ami won most of his duels in lvl 7 ;) elfs really rock at lvl 7 in duels if you know how to play :D
#348: no, at level 7 elf is not so bad. but keep in mind that elf is a supporting faction and not a main one. try pvp with 2 or 3 players in the same team. duels are not recommended.
#351

I disagree.

Elf is the best faction for pvp, at lv 7.
Theoretically, yes. Practically:

first: https://www.lordswm.com/warlog.php?lt=-1&warid=14902771
second: https://www.lordswm.com/warlog.php?lt=-1&warid=14924014

I suppose that is what they called "5% easier" (whoever they may be). :D


on the other hand they sometimes don't grow unbeatable:

weird that i survived with much more troops (same arts as before) although that caravan was supposed to be stronger...
(and i got sort of lucky with 2 sprites remaining so they were able to block 120 crossbows in a way that those crossbows only killed 2 sprites at the first turn :D )
can anyone tell me what is the best way to do thief ambush for a lvl 8 elf?
that is, what talent should i use, how should i recruit my troops, and how should i set up my troops in ambush.
Thx
I just turned lvl 8 and I am experimenting with talents.

Current might talent build:
Basic Erudition
Advanced fortune

Current Magic Talent Build:
Basic Nature Magic
Advanced Fortune

Should I change anything??
P.S
Erudition points go to attack
What worked in my case (and not only):

https://www.lordswm.com/forum_messages.php?tid=1857386&page=4#193438

Talents: Expert Fortune + Basic Defense.
lvl 8: basic attack + battle fury
lvl 9: basic attack + battle fury + basic erudition (1 attack and 1 knowledge if you didn't get knowledge earlier, else 2 attack)
options, options, options... :)

just choose one which fits your style, poornamer. ;)
in this lvl what favoured enemy i do for every faction
