    This is a roadmap for unlocking both the "left with no choice" and "breaking eggs to make an omelette" quests.

    It all starts in your capital city with the "emissary to Argos" quest.(I can't remember for certain, but I believe around level 20 these open up) From there, quests should go in the following order (given in Argos):
    It burns us
    Cleaning out the filth
    Do something cool for me
    Egyptian alliance
    Get our houses back
    Dock rats
    Retake the islands
    Run the blockade

    At this point, "breaking eggs.." achievement quest will become acceptable in Argos.

    Unfortunately, left with no choice is still a few missions away. Do these quests:
    We killed these guys already
    Why does it have to be bandits
    Left with no choice

    I had wasted many hours leveling before realizing this was actually its own campaign. Hope a roadmap can help someone still.

    LonesquiffIf I bring a co-op friend in for the achv related quests will they get credit or do they have to do the chain as well?

    Das KuhnenI honestly don't know. Thanks to a crappy pc, I haven't even been able to try coop yet.

    ZemidekIm stuck in "The Egyptian Alliance" it just seems to be way to difficult I've tried wiping them out early, and building a tech 4 army but I just seem to get wiped out no matter what. Is there anything you think you can tell me that will make this easier for me?

    I got this when reached level 34 but was green for me, so i suppose you can get it around level 30. Its a quest in Argos, repeatable and doable in coop. Dont know if you start on the same map always, i tried it once and the islands were differently positioned, but the point is to not be in the middle because its harder that way(you'll get attacked from multiple ways). My tip is to load the mission until you start on the south island or north one, i did mine from the south position as seen on the map.

    (red dots-my fireships)
    red paint - enemy position

    My strategy was to rapidly build a port and then create several fireships 5-8, and position them around the island blocking the enemy from reaching you; this way you will destroy his transports way before they eject on your island. Doing this, will allow you to peacefully build/upgrade your army to the max (although there are kinda few resources on your island - building a marketplace will solve this in a way)

    Ofcourse you could start building fortresses to try defending yourself while building your army but the enemy will eventually overwhelm you, plus the map position its hard to defend because you dont know from each side will the enemy come, and the island resources are few, especially gold.

    Its a hard mission, this is the first one i encounter till my 34 level when the enemy built range siege weapons (im talking about normal missions, not siege ones), and if you dont be careful for they ballista(majority are elite) they will evaporate you :). Thats why, i think my strategy with the fireships its better but everyone is free to play it their way.

    x50 Spenceif you have a look on

    You can see what you need to do to unlock a particular quest. There are not many guides for this game unfortunately! True achievements and this wiki seem to be the best stuff on the net for this game!
