Description

This adventure map is the most ideal adventure to get exotic wood and granite, with a chance of getting Motherly Love, an adventure that also gives high amount of exotic wood and granite as rewards.

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.
