Yer bog-standard Serfs, their primary use is in collecting gold and lumber and. building things. If a fight occurs near them, move them all away to safety. immediately. Always try to keep your Peons behind other units. One of the more. useful things that Peons do is repair.
If one of your buildings is under attack. instruct a Peon to repair it while the attack is going on. As long as you keep it on. the other side of the building from the attacker, you’ll find that it’s perfectly safe.
indestructible. It’s also possible to use this facility to speed up your building by. sending Peons to repair a building under construction.
Be warned, though: this. will substantially add to the cost in both gold and lumber. Orc Grunts/Footmen. These characters are your basic foot soldiers, and you’ll need a few of these at the. start of each level.
As soon as you can though, you should stop producing them. and concentrate on some of the.
Trolls/Elven Archers. These are the missile units. In hand-to-hand combat they are quickly. overwhelmed. Always keep them behind Grunts or Ogres (Footmen and Knights. for the Elves) in battle. If you group them with these other units, keep a fairly.
even mix. When you move to engage the enemy, the Trolls or Archers will stop at. Both Trolls and Elves should be upgraded vigorously.
On later levels they. become the best defence against the heavy aerial threat posed by Dragons or. Gryphons. A couple of well-trained units can be very effective, especially if you. distract the aerial invader with some cannon fodder.
Get a Footman or Grunt and. run him around underneath the flying nasties. He’ll probably survive for quite a. while and your missile chuckers will benefit from the easy target practice.
Catapult/Ballista. More destructive than the Trolls or Archers, these are also missile-only units. They’re very slow, however, and in defence you should always keep them back. from any front-line areas, only bringing them forward when an enemy appears.
Their greatest use comes when attacking, because of their exceptional range. With.
reasonably careful positioning, you’ll be able to take out enemy towers without. any danger to the catapult. When attacking with these units, always keep some. foot soldiers nearby.
If the catapults come under attack, move this squad in to deal. Like the Death Knight, the Mage should be kept out of close fighting. The Mage. has great destructive capability with its Fireball spell - just be careful there are no. friendly units in the line of fire. The other great spell in the Mage’s armoury is.
Invisibility. Cast it on a Peasant and get him to walk calmly into your enemy’s lair.
and build a Guard Tower. Or cast it in on a Peasant in combination with Flame. The Death Knight is an awesome creature, but not really suited to hand-to-hand. combat. Try to keep them slightly away from the fighting and particularly any.
Paladins. Probably their greatest power is to animate the dead. With the judicious. use of a couple of Death Knights attached to any raiding party you can turn all the. enemies you defeat into skeleton soldiers at no financial cost. As the enemy gets. weaker, you get stronger.
The Troll Destroyer and Elven Destroyer are fast, manoeuvrable ships and still. The Submarines make a great addition to any naval group as well, but can also be.
used very effectively as raiders in groups of two or three, especially if combined. with an aerial spotter to watch out for any Towers or flying creatures that are. One final piece of advice. Towers are very effective against naval units, and.
you’ll nearly always lose ships when attacking them. But you can use a Transport. instead. Put three Footmen into the Transport and rush the enemy Tower.
Land. Towers are an extremely effective form of defence, particularly as they can be.
easily repaired when damaged. What’s not so obvious is that they can also be very. handy in an attack. Building a string of Towers behind enemy lines will certainly.
Although you can’t build walls yourself, you do have an option to create very. effective barriers by using Farms. Farms are not crucial buildings and are pretty.
cheap to produce. If you want to block off an area against repeated attacks, build.
a wall out of Farms and then place Towers just behind it. The enemy will come.
along and attack the Farms, leaving you in peace to pick them off. Then when the. There is a quite splendid array of cheats for Warcraft II. These are just some of.
the more useful. To use any of them, press the ‘enter’ key.
Then, when the. ‘Message:’ prompt comes up, type in any of the following. A word of caution. though: some of these cheats (particularly the production ones) give the enemy the.
same benefits. This is thankfully not true of the invincibility. Typing in the same. cheat code a second time will turn the cheat off.
