loving this game!

took a while but finally beat all the levels. awesome artwork, great for thought invoking, however, there is 1 downside i found, that really got to me. when facing the little goblin rangers, once in a while they will slip past your leading blockers and make their way back to your hero. before you know it, you have to replay the entire level.

a few tips if you are having trouble later in the game.

1. spam shield, for 25 mana, extend the life of your heavy blockers.
2. lv1 meteor will nearly kill the golems on the last normal mission. this spell (along with tornado) is great for knockback, giving you more room to play with.
3. building healing towers is great when facing a tough boss, as you move through the ranks, you build up, as you fall back from being attacked by the boss, you can still be healing. (this works great with the giant golem, but really bad with the undead wolf)
4. ranged + lighting (the amazon works REALLY well) this will stun the smaller targets. the amazon's attack goes through all targets, till it hits the ground. thus, you could hit 4-5 units in one shot, stunning them in the process. also, with 1 accessory, it helps all the units in that group, so all the amazon's get the lighting attack.
5. the giant golem is TOUGH, with a ton of HP, however, (thanks to danyalejandro for pointing this out) spam a lot of little units (goblins, the flyer gun guys, ect) to slow down the golem, let your spells and ranged units do the fighting.

as always, these are just a few ideas, and might not work for everyone as well as they did for me. have fun with the game, and i am looking forward to more great epic war games!

IVE BEEN WAITING FOREVER FOR THIS GAME!!!!! im doing a live review right now, so ill type as i play and say what's on my mind.... starting up right now..... ok, ive looked at the gooey sufaces like the upgrade menu and its so complicated! i love it! im gonna have to learn it fast if i wanna be able to beat this game.... i just paused the game and theres a game speed multiplier! nice..... ive also chosen the second hero, the queen, graphics arent exactly what i expected but its ok.... i finally seen my heroes attack, very epic, i like it a lot, its very powerful and smooth.... ive gotten a copper sword for my basic melee units, a nice feature for the units to make them more powerful.... ive also gotten a new "minion" whatever theyre called, elf hunter, im pretty sure ill be pleased with this character.... theres a tower in the way, i wonder if therell be more like them more powerful.... i like how my hero has an occasional "war cry" im wondering if this is a critical hit? i dont know, because the war cry is at a steady pace, but maybe the critical hits are too.... ive added my first upgrad th the elf warrior, the other 2 units i have, im saving up for a population incrase and max damage increase, ive also gotten a new warrior "elderly wizard" as like every other new unit im prety sure ill be happy with it :).... im on the third level, and i see that theres a rain effect, very nice, but im wondering if itll cause any lag like in the other games.... i just found out that my units can be poisoned or caught on fire, a very nice twist to all of the epic wars that will need new strategy.... well, im pretty sure this is long enough, ill stop here, the strategy for this game is pretty simple, no need to worry about some sort of epic war 3 super attack on you good luck, and may your war be epic!!!!
