Hammer of the Gods

This is extremely hard, infact this is one of the hardest achievements I will have unlocked. I have repeated missions over and over just to get this done. You must be fast and skillful, and when you are not timed, you must take your time patience is necessary.

I am going to give some hints and strategies on how to go through the game.

First off, this game is like a Strategy RPG, which means your units will rank up, your hero's will get stronger on how good they do. The main thing to do is to set yourself up every battle. If you do really bad and you KNOW you can do better, RESTART THE MISSION. If you do not, you will get weaker and weaker unable to go any further as you will have no men or army to use when it is required.

Tactics
What kind of units should you use? Have a good group of units for each mission. Always have some ranged units to sit back and attack while you have good defense units. If you can use a shield up ability take advantage of it. While playing I would always taunt the enemy and separate them, try using a heros spell, or send your archers to hit them once, when they start running at you run behind your defense and just pelt them with arrows from behind. Now it is very annoying because there will always be ranged units attacking you from many directions, the key is to immediately get a group of mounted guys, with your hero grouped up together with them. to group up use RT, right on D pad, B, and click on the hero with the army selected. The key is to make this mounted hero a Tank, give him all increase max hp items, all skill items. The key is to also increase this heros health, defense, and anything that will make this hero a monster. If you do it right this group will take down groups just by running through them. I had it to where I had a group of mounted Dark Elves and just ran back and fourth through 3 groups of men and they will all be slaughtered. One of the biggest tips I found which will make the game much easier and faster, make sure to put your men on Run, instead of Walk. If you do this you will move faster and you can use tactics easier as speed is a big help. To use run have all units selected(push in left analog stick), RT, left on D pad, and Y. They will all be put in run mode.

Hero's

Your hero's are your biggest baddest weapon, they must be used to their limit, do not have them sit back and hide, the good news is if they are at least near the battle they will gain xp, but will probably do better if they are taking out enemies. The key is to make 1 hero in every storeyline and make them a tank. If you have a tank you can destroy armies with just the hero. This will also be very useful to dueling. If you always have a amazing hero you will win every duel. If you have a magic user try to keep them in the army but not always at the front lines. Try to make their magic their strength don't increase useless stuff like increase damage, unless it is with spells. Use their spells as much as possible, as your magic will regenerate free, but be careful all hero's in the battle use the same mana pool.

Items you find

Sell all useless items that you will never use, I sold everything but stat boosters, needed weapons, and healing potions. Make sure to keep anything that will be active just by staying in your bag like banners. Try to get all items in the map if you can, they do not go into your inventory after the battle, the game says the gold on the ground will instantly go into your inventory but I think its just talking about "Invisible gold" which you gain at the end of each battle. Pick up everything you can.

After each battle
Healing your units is the #1 importance, make sure after each battle to heal all your units as they will be your key to winning. Your Hero's never need healing as they automatically get full health before each battle. Try to get a upgrade or so after every battle, also keeping your units alive during every game is extremely important. If you have any weak units have them run back from the army and battles, keeping them alive is far too important. Push in the right analog stick to use all units on the screen, do not push in the left analog stick, as that will call all units.( basic command settings )

This is insane, im stuck

You can always back out of the game and reload as you will get everything back from when you finished your last battle. Try buying different things or changing your hero's skills if you have any skill points sitting there. Use all your gold you can before battle, spending gold will increase the chance of losing less gold every time. Use every skill point at least before every battle, saving gold or skill points in this game will only make it harder rather than help you in the future, you will lose more gold because your men will get more hurt or you hero's will be weaker so they won't be able to kill. If I ever got stuck on a mission, I would take a day's break and think about a new strategy on how to do the mission, sometimes moving your men in different directions can make big changes.

Cannons, Artillery, are slaughtering me
These are a big pain, but good news is there is a super easy way to take care of these, sometimes it will require a group of mounted guys, or just your mounted hero. If you ever see cannons take your Hero and run to them, keep your army out of the cannon's range. Use your hero or Hero w/ mounted group, to run to the cannon's if you see any army just run through them, if you do this they will just walk straight through them. Make sure they are running and not walking, or you will die, to run use RT, left on D pad, Y, then they will be in run mode. If they start walking it is either a spell or you are out of stamina. If you see towers, I would recommend capturing them instead of attacking them, they can be much more useful this way. The assassin in the Dark Elves has a invisibly ability just run invisible towards the tower, and cap it that way. Don't always just charge the towers unless it has an army around it. If anything attract the battle away from the tower, and cap it afterward.

If you felt like your campaign is completely screwed, just restart from beginning and use different tactics. Every mission and campaign has its own tactics, but the Hero's are your most important and useful weapon, but at the same time they can be your downfall, don't worry about losing a mission, just do it again and don't make the same mistake. If anyone has any questions or help on tactics just ask me and I will gladly give advice.
