Trojan War


Campaign Walkthroughs

Trojan War

There are two objectives to this scenario, to kill Hector and to capture the Treasure of Priam. They’re actually pretty simple to do, and it’s even possible to complete this scenario without ever landing in Troy if you’re lucky. 
To start, put your Villagers on harvesting the Berry Bushes and farming, but don’t build any new Farms. Just let the ones you start with get depleted, you’ll be fishing for food before long. There’s no Age to change to, so Food is only used for units. 
Start Scout Ships at the Dock and produce two or three of them, then upgrade to War Galleys. Build a few Fishing Boats and begin fishing for food, plus have your Villagers build a second Dock to the North, and build two more Fishing Boats at that Dock. That should get you plenty of Food. 
Build up your navy to about six War Galleys, and sail Eastward until you find the Trojan Dock. Take it out, as well as any Villagers sent to repair it, making sure to sink any enemy War Galleys. Once it’s gone you’ll rule the seas, something you need to do to be able to invade. 
Build a Siege Workshop and a Temple, upgrade as far as possible in the Temple and build four or so Stone Throwers. Build a Light Transport and take some Villagers to the island Southeast of your Dock, first killing the Lions there with your fleet. Build a Storage Pit there and mine the Gold. Send a few more Villagers to the island North of your area and mine the Gold there as well. 
Keep your navy repaired, and keep patrolling the coast of Troy, killing anything that moves. One trick is to take out the Storage Pits, as well as the Villagers sent to repair them, it all adds up to resources that Troy will use up. You can also start taking out the various Towers along the coast, be sure to send your ships back for repair as they get damaged or you’ll need to replace them. 
Keep building Light Transports until you have about six of them, fill two with Swordsmen, one with Cavalry and two with Bowmen. Put three or four Stone Throwers on the last one, and find space for three Priests as well. In the meantime, move your fleet South along the Trojan coast, if you’re lucky you’ll find Hector and be able to kill him from the sea. 
Whether or not you find Hector, eliminate any units along the South coast, your naval fire can reach all the way to the map borders here and you want to clear the beaches for a landing. Once the area is clear, land with all your troops and start moving out to the North. Use the Stone Throwers to take out any buildings, Towers or Walls, and your Cavalry to take out enemy Catapults. Heal everything with your Priests and convert any enemy units you can. Use the Bowmen to keep the enemy mounted units at bay and the Swordsmen to take them out. Keep moving North and you’ll find the Treasure behind a walled area protected by Towers. Seize it for the win, unless you still need to hunt down Hector. 
If you need to find Hector, a good tactic is to use your own Hero to take out anything in the way and your Priests to heal him. Use your fleet to hit anything along the coast, and keep moving, laying waste to everything in sight. If you’re really lucky, your fleet will seize control of the Treasure from the sea, it’s in range if you take out any enemy units near it. Again, if you were able to kill Hector from the sea, you can win without ever making the landing.
