GOODS

 

These are the goods you'll use the most of for catering in the Magic Dust Tournament:

Steel

Scrolls

Magic Dust

EXTRAS

If you have any Orc Strategists from winning Grounds of the Orc Strategist in past events, this is a great province to use them! 

TRAINING - ELVES

Train plenty of the following types of fighters to ensure you've got the best units

to handle the Shady Characters found in the Magic Dust provinces:

BEGINNER                          

Cerberus

Sorceress

Archer

Golem

Players in chapter 1 can train Sword Dancers to use against any enemy type. Train Archers to use against the Abbots and Banshees.

 

Once you have unlocked the Cerberus, start training these instead of the Sword Dancers. After unlocking Golems, train a few of these to use against Wild Archers and Steinlings. Train Sorceress to use against the Steinlings.

INTERMEDIATE

Cerberus II

Banshee

Archer II

Golem II

Train Cerberus II to use against the Abbots, Banshees and Wild Archers. Train Archer II for long-range attacks against the Abbots and Banshees.    

 

Train Golem II  for encounters facing mostly Wild Archers and Steinlings, and Train Banshees instead of Sorceresses to use against the Steinlings.

ADVANCED

Sinister Cerberus

Banshe II

Ranger II

Granite Golem

Although the Ranger specializes against Mage Units, we found that in this province, they only performed better than the Archers once they have reached level 2. The Archers performed much better than the Ranger I in most of the encounters in this province.  

 

Continue training Sinister Cerberus, Banshee II or Ghastly Banshees and Granite Golems.    

TRAINING - HUMANS

Train plenty of the following types of fighters to ensure you've got the best units

to handle the Shady Characters found in the Magic Dust provinces:             

BEGINNER                          

Cerberus

Priest

Crossbowman

Mortar

Players in chapter 1 can train Axe Barbarians to use against any enemy type. Train Crossbowmen to use against the Abbots and Banshees.

 

Once you have unlocked the Cerberus, start training these instead of the Axe Barbarians. After unlocking Mortars, train a few of these to use against Wild Archers and Steinlings. Train Priests to use against the Steinlings.

INTERMEDIATE

Cerberus II

Priest

Crossbowman II

Orc Strategist

Train Cerberus II to use against the Abbots, Banshees and Wild Archers. Train Crossbowmen II for long-range attacks against the Abbots and Banshees.    

 

Train Orc Strategists for encounters facing mostly Wild Archers and Steinlings, and Train Priest II or Sacred Priests to use against the Steinlings.

ADVANCED

Ghastly Banshee

Sinister Cerberus

Ranger II

Orc Strategist II

Although the Ranger specializes against Mage Units, we found that in this province, they only performed better than the Crossbowmen once they have reached level 2. The Crossbowmen performed much better than the Ranger I in most of the encounters in this province.  

 

Continue training Sinister Cerberus and Orc Strategist II. Train Ghastly Banshees instead of Sacred Priests as they performed just a little better than the Priests in this province. If training Banshees takes a lot longer than training Priests, train Priests instead.

TACTICS TO CONSIDER

 

 

The Banshee should be your #2 Priority after the Abbot as she can put a spell on your fighters that will reduce their armor, making them much easier to kill. 

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 fighting novices to still be able to use a mix of resources (units and goods) so more tournament provinces and rounds can be won.  

 

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

 

Of course, choose at your own risk.  The more difficult the fight, and the more even the match-up, the more likely it is that you are nearly guaranteed to lose far more units with auto-fight than with manual fight.

AUTO-FIGHT  ELVES

NEWBIE ELVES

ADVANCED HUMANS

MANUAL-FIGHT

 

Manual fight is recommended in most instances for fewer losses of units. Manual fight may or may not make a significant difference compared to auto-fight in the easiest battles (usually only the first round of the tournament for each province.)

Use Cerberus

vs

combos of 2 or more Abbots, Banshees or Wild Archers, and one or fewer Steinlings.

Use Cerberus or Crossbowmen/Archers/Rangers II

vs

Mostly Abbots, Banshees and two or fewer Wild Archers

OR

Use Mortars, Golems or Orc Strategists

vs

Wild Archers, Steinlings, and one or fewer Abbots or Banshees

Use Priests, Sorceress or Banshee

vs

Mostly Steinlings, Abbots, Banshees and one or fewer Wild Archers
