1. Loop 2 First Battle
You will have a shock if you are playing other than “easy” setting here as you start off with only 150 gold. Plant a spearman and start shooting, keep checking the gold amount and sell off spearman to upgrade to a hero, and the map will be a breeze now. For higher difficulty setting, you might have to come back much later after you have raised your morale significantly.
2. Loop 2 5th Battle
The Lu Bu is almost un-killable. An easy way to kill him is to have 2 max-out spear wielding heroes (such as Zhang Liao and Xiahou Dun), the stratagem that can cause 90% damage instantly, and a mage wearing the 7999 gold armor that can cause 10% damage per second.
