Stealing from the Rich
Stealing from the Rich Img.png
A very concerned landlord has written a letter to you. One of his previously loyal master archers has turned rogue, living in the forest and stealing gold from rich merchants and nobles. With it, he bribes simple peasants into rioting. You have to stop this at once!

Description

Excellent XP & Rewards but fairly high losses. Watch out for hidden Wolf packs in the forests (many can be avoided but some need dealing with). Also Watchtowers pose zero threat to 200 Cavalry but take many minutes to defeat.

There is an approximate 3% chance that among the rewards for completion will be the White Castle premium item that gives a non upgradable +50 to Population Limit.

Guide

Refer to the Combat page for more information.
Generally, the lowest quantity/cost troop combination is listed but higher cost/value troops can be substituted to boost the odds toward losing 1-2 less troops. So use of elite soldiers, longbowman and crossbowman is at your discretion but most likely will not change the outcome very much depending for any particular battle. Likewise, more troops than listed can be sent if capacity of the general permits but in most cases will not affect the outcome.

Sector 2 Attack from same position through this sector into the one to the North.
*Note To save time one can ignore the wolves and directly attack the leader camp with the stated army (below).
The general will be intercepted but will not change the outcome of victory of either camps.

Sector
4 / 5

Move below wolves and use this position to clear both sector 4 and 5.

Note: If you attack camp 2 first, you can reposition yourself to the most western position, and avoid the wolves, which saves 7 Recruits.

Sector 6 Move to East of sector, note wolf packs, and attack down the avenue to the watchtowers with 200C without losses or the need to retreat.
*Note you can avoid the wolfpack if you clear the last pair of towers by attacking the final Leader and getting distracted, but for the sake of 9R it's hardly worth it.

Sector 3 For some reason doing the previous sector first allows you to place your garrison higher up in this Sector, even before you finished it.
