View Full Version : Majesty Gold Edition... I must be doing it wrong...
09-23-2010, 09:16 PM
Maybe it's because I played Majesty 2 first and am used to a slightly different game, but I'm finding the original Majesty impossibly hard. I can't even complete the _tutorial_. You know you suck (badly) when you can't win the introduction mission.
Anyway, I got the original because most places I read said that Majesty 2 comes off as a pale imitation of the original. Fair enough. Majesty Gold Edition was only $9.99 on Steam, I decided to try it.
I get the basic idea of the first mission, "The Bell, The Book and The Candle" (Or something like that.) You find the three places, destroy them, you get your items back and you win. I can't get my Heroes anywhere near them. I build Rogues, Rangers and Gnomes as fast as they die and no one can get near it. I researched Weapons & Armor up to level 3, researched potions for the Trading Post, researched everything I could in the marketplace. No one can get near any of the three "hiding spots", which I put large rewards on to encourage my Heroes. I have graveyards full of dead Heroes (4 or 5 graveyards total, I think.) and EVERYONE KEEPS DYING. I was probably at this map for over an hour before I finally gave up.
Can someone please tell me what the hell I'm doing wrong? I'm about ready to delete the game and pretend I never bought it, to be completely honest. Majesty 2 may be a worse game, but at least I can do well in that.

Dont build rangers rogues or gnomes as first.Always build Warriors guild first because they are tough and are quite powerfull.After that make marketplace and blacksmith.You need to resarch healing potion as soon as possible in marketplace.2 Warriors guild is enough for the whole map imo.After that you can make rogue or others.
Btw Gnomes suck at fighting they are builders dont count them as fighters.So you can actually make a gnome hovel before warriors guild to make it build faster.
Majesty 1 is a hell lot better than M2 sadly.

I remember having to use cheats on Majesty 1 ages and ages ago.
Don't use gnomes for fighting, rangers are alright but they're better when supporting warriors, indeed.
Conserve your gold, built watchtowers with arrows if enemies are advancing too much, take out lairs, and build a marketplace with healing potions. All this might help your heros stay alive.

For most scenarios, the hardest part will be holding out against the initial assault by the enemy. As others have mentioned before, research healing potions from the marketplace ASAP. Keep your initial buildings as close to your castle as possible, as they will be easier to defend. Build a watchtower or two at key defensive points and upgrade them with arrows in case enemies start attacking your settlement. Gnomes are only good for quick building, not combat (I personally hold out for dwarves, they are effective close combat units and their ballista towers are second to none). Rangers are notoriously weak as well at low levels, and I only create them when I've consolidated my defenses and wish to explore the map.
I have found that Warriors coupled with Rogues can be a deadly combination. Warriors are excellent at tanking enemies and deal reasonable damage. Moreover, upgrading the Rogue's Guild allows you to poison weapons, making Rogues effective for inflicting DoT attacks. Their predilection to loot gravestones will contribute a modest amount to your overall economy as well (they will also loot your own houses however, so try to keep them busy fighting enemies).
Once you've gotten a decent defense and your heroes have leveled up a bit, start tackling lairs one by one starting with the ones closest to your settlement. After a while you won't have to worry about your heroes once they've leveled up enough. Once they've reached level 5 or so, you don't have to babysit them so much. By the time they're level 10 and upgraded with decent gear, they can take on just about anything by themselves with the exception of boss monsters or huge raids.
Hope this helps!
EDIT: I just replayed the level, and I forgot that it won't let you build Warriors or upgrade Rogue weapons. Allow me to revise my previous statement:
Start off by building a marketplace and researching healing potions ASAP. DO NOT recruit Gnomes, as you won't be able to hire Dwarves later on. Next start recruiting Rogues while upgrading their gear via the blacksmith (note that they have to visit the blacksmith and purchase upgraded gear themselves before they benefit from it). Build a Ranger's Guild next and start recruiting them to augment the Rogues. You'll probably end up losing a few, just replace them when you do. While you're doing this, build one or two extra guardhouses and upgrade them with arrows. From there, concentrate on upgrading your blacksmith until the Dwarves decide to lend a hand (building a statue helps too). Build one of their settlements with a ballista or two to augment your guardhouse defense. Be sure to recruit some Dwarves, as they are easily swayed by bounties. From then on, just place attack bounty flags on the lairs and you should be golden.
