Okay I find that this is a great game and I love to see how it started for vandal heart.... but one thing I feel is this is too simple. I mean, the only two battles I had difficulties is the first one where you need to protect the king and another one where a tried to take all the treasures in the map.

Same thing with gold, each time shops have new items, I have more then enough money to buy al the best stuff.

So, all I wanted to know is if I'm the only one thinking that?

I'm now at the last battle ( I think) and now it's fucking hard! I tried 3 times and never get near winning....... Is that normal ?

I found most of the fights fairly easy, but they were fun and I still had to work at it.

The king throne room escort was a real pain as he was determined to sprint to the exit. I finally made it through as he got snared and it slowed him down.

I had to try the final fight twice. I got through it by gathering many minions and spamming heal

Wow okay... finally finished the game!!

Okay anyone, the final battle isn't that hard, just pay attention to the minions health to now their 'class' (use in this battle) and everything will be perfect!

Can you actually snare the king?

What about the minions health? Is there a specific class to focus on from the beginning to get rid of them?

The best minions are the spellcasters as they can cast Divine Power and Healing Rain which will really help as you want to be attacking with the main character as he does the most damage.

You want to ensure you convert the spellcasters rather than let your minions kill them if possible. If you can convert all the minions then it's a lot easier as you can send the fighters in to attack while you keep healing them with the spellcasters.

Also focus on one avatar at a time, then convert all the new minions, then take out the next avatar.

Exactly like Loopstahblue (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/member.php?u=201054) said. If you take care to kill yourself all the minions and play vary careful until you destroyed the first Avatar, than you can find the figth easy.

After destroying the first Avatar I had like 4 spellcaster and 3 brawler. Killed the second avatar and got 5 or 6 spell caster and 5 brawler and the figth was soo easy!

Avatar? Minion? Convert?

Alright, you've lost me here.

I'm actually at the Castle Courtyard where I have to escort the King.
I don't see any minions, but I do see Golden Mages.

I assume that 'convert' means making an enemy to an ally?
I am not sure how to "convert" anything. I don't see such a thing amongst the Magic Skills.

It would help if you actually played that far, first. Why do all the guide makers never play the game...

Because of the time we put in the writing of it, and by testing different options/approaches so we can write a guide that is accurate and containing the correct information, in order to deliver quality...

The minions they are talking about are at the final battle, not the king fight. And no you can not snare the king yourself; however, the golden mages snared him pretty frequently for me.

The king escort mission was kinda difficult at first, but yes I definitely agree that it's way too easy. I found myself starting to grind abilities, just to find out that it didn't even matter in the end. End battle was kinda hard I guess.

Did anyone else find that just equipping everyone with bows to make the game even easier than it already is? I started doing this around act III, and I quickly found that every mission after that was literally a pushover.

So this is all Single Player right? No Cooperative, online fun? It doesn't say in the marketplace for me so I assume it's single player anyways...

Yeah, it's single player and so far I haven't found the game to be too difficult at all. I am only just onto the Second Act now and it's been very rare to have any of my party members fall in battle.

You definitely want to give everyone the best bow you have available. And it makes it easier because you have many more opportunities for team attacks. However the damage is much less than melee weapons. I found useful situations for both ranged and melee. And if you get really good at strategy with melee, you can win maps much faster. With heavy hitting enemies its best to stay away and shoot arrows, but enemy archers are much more effectively taken down with melee from characters with mobility buff.

But overall, you are correct. Bows are much easier to use in this game and are good enough to use exclusively if you like.
