if u really want to get down enemy's walls quickly just click on mercenery
post and produce 6 or 7 assa ssins alongwith 1 or 2 arabaian bow men and
then click on both of them and then click attak here and attack any enemy
building not enemy towers u will see after some time assassins will raze
down the walls in seconds .it is quick than trebuchets and also quicker
than catapults.try it have fun!
Crossbowmen are useful for base and offensive measures. You should build up at least fifteen
Crossbowmen at the start. Buy them and place a tower near a stronghold or farm, depending on
the landscape. For offensive tactics, build up at least 75-100 Crossbowmen, 2 Balista or 8
Assassins and 2 Catapults. Take out enemy tower first, then move the Baslistas and Crossbowmen
in for the kill. Pick off enemy troops and use Assassins to take the gate house, or have a Siege
Tower so you can get on to the ramparts. Then, have your Crossbowmen shoot the Enemy Lord while
only suffering minimal casualties. Note: This does not work well in multi-player games against
human opponents without the support of a lot of Swordsmen. However, this is still a high risk
tactic in multi-player mode as the opposing lord may wipe out your Crossbowmen.
For base defense, when you have your production up and running, you need to have two to three
large Siege Towers full of Crossbowmen. This tactic works very well. To get crossbowmen recruits
up and running, build one or two dairy farms. Then build three Tanners to each farm and have
three or more armorers to build crossbows. Have eight or more peasants around the campfire.
You should have your keep enclosed by now. If you have a money source, you can buy Crossbowmen.
Have many iron mines or quarries for income. Also, you can have inns and raise taxes.
You should also have gardens for the people.
Lookout towers are very useful, as they give good missile unit defense. Build an army of 20 Archers
and select 5 of them. Set the game to slow speed and send the 5 archers to the tower. Quickly select
another 5 Archers and send them in before the others get there. Do the same for the other 10 to get
20 archers on a small tower.
Tower-mounted Mangonels can prove to be good siege weapons. In many maps, the keeps start in close
proximity to each other. Build your walls out as far as they can go. Place round towers and lookout
towers on the wall facing your opponent's castle. Fill them with Archers and Mangonels.
In many cases, you can hit the enemy's walls with the Mangonels from you own. Also, if you Archers
can reach their walls, you can clear his Archers from your own walls.
Mounted Knights are very useful for being a thorn in the enemy's side. Build 20 to 40 of them
(depending on the enemy; Rat will only need 20, but Saladin will need 40). Send them out to destroy
enemy farms and resources. Make a destructive sweep, then return to your castle. This is quite useful
for stalling enemy production.
Siege equipment on walls:
Use the following trick to get siege equipment on walls (not the mounted ones that are bought, but the
ones that you make). Build a Gatehouse connected to a wall and build stairs far away from this. Send
the equipment that you want through the gate from the outside to the inside. As soon as they are inside
the gate, shut it and they will appear on the wall heading for the stairs. Stop them where desired (but
not on towers as they will disappear), then you have a nice weapon on a wall.
Stone and market:
If you have a level where you are near a lot of stone, build two to four Quarries. Then, make the same
amount of Ox Tethers near them. Increase you stockpile to about six to nine. Keep working on getting stone.
You will still have to work on other things to protect yourself. After a few minutes (if you do not waste
any stone or use a little), you will have 500 or more stone. If you built a Market already, you can sell
your stone for about 100 to 350 gold each, only letting you have a choice to make low, average, or no
taxes at all.
Hold enemies captive inside their own castles:
Take a small building such as an Oxen Tether. Place one or two of them directly outside the gatehouse(s)
of your enemy's castle, but make sure their keep is enclosed first. Immediately put the Oxen Tethers to
sleep. The ground troops will walk to the gatehouse to destroy them, but cannot get through. They will
just walk back to their spot. Your enemy's buildings outside of the castle will spontaneously crumble
because the workers cannot get back inside. Also, the gatehouse(s) that you blocked may spontaneously
crumble after awhile. Soon there will be no food and the peasants will leave the castle. The small army
will be trapped inside their own walls awaiting your arrival. When your army is built up, you can move
over and wipe the whole castle off the map. Note: Make sure that there are no enemies outside of the
castle, or else they will probably destroy your Oxen Tethers.
During the beginning of the game, if you have good open space around you Granary on an oasis, you can
build three or four Apple Orchards, two or three Dairy Farms, two Hops Farms, then build only three
Wheat Farms ( around the Granary). Then, near the Granary where there is not an oasis space, build a
Mill and two Bakeries. This will keep constant food production; it will not run out even when you have
about a 90 population limit. Next, build one or two Breweries and one or two Inns. Also, build a Church.
This will get the population happy to about +4. Wait until you have 100 popularity then raise the taxes
to average taxes. Keep that at a constant rate and you can have a lot of gold flowing into your keep.
Unlimited population with no need to feed:
You can avoid the hassle of having to constantly provide food and worry about population limits by building
lots of Chapels. This increases your religion happiness to about 8+ if you have enough. You also need to
get a full +5 for Fear Factor. At this point you can stop feeding them and have a huge population.
You can get around 50 people to make bows and you can set the taxes to low and still make about 120 gold
When you first start, use all your stone to set up some defenses and build four to six Wood Cutters Huts.
Build a market as soon as possible, and buy about 150 Wood. Build nothing but Wheat Farms in your farming
area. If you have some resources nearby, such as Rocks or Pitch, use them to get some Gold. As soon as
you start to get some Wheat, build about four to six Mills and about twenty to thirty Bakeries.
Once you get enough food, set it to Double Rations, and if you have enough gold, build a couple Chapels,
Churches, or Cathedrals. If you have all three, you will get +3 points on Religion.
Buy some Hops and build some Breweries. Place about four Inns throughout your Castle.
About halfway through this process, you should set the Tax to -4. When you are done with this you can
set the Tax to -12 or even -20, depending on the map. Make sure to keep your defenses up.
With this setup you will soon have more than 2,000 Food even with double rations, over 20,000 gold,
and a very good a stockpile.
