I completed an adventure but forgot to spend the talent points. After I completed another adventure, I should've been able to upgrade twice, but after upgrading once the game didn't let me level up a second time (even though there still was that plus sign next to the characters)
What are crossbows good for? Tried them once but it's just too slow...probably because I didn't get the hang of the reloading.
Other than that I love this game.
For anyone struggling, I got the bodking arrowhead and the longbow, along with spiral fletching and the composite arrow. To make aiming easier I took the weapons of the enemies (for non-archers) as reference point. As for the upgrades: I only bought mead when I had everything else maxed; I preferred archers over catapults but I don't know if that's a smart choice since the maxed catapult is pretty badass. I guess there is more than one way to win.
Anyway, this strategy worked for me: 624 kills on 758 shots and 79% accuracy
Fun game, even though I agree with it being too hard later on and that you should be able to edit your controls. One more thing: a map of some sorts would be nice because I never know if the next jump is a big one or not.
I just finished the game with "The Guard" or rather tried to finish it - beat the last opponent and got to the victory screen (where it says "Outstanding!...") but I couldn't continue because Firefox complained that some script was slowing it down (and it did, eventually had to close FF) - just take a good look at the plugin-container.exe in your task manager once you get to the screen
To anyone complaining that rushing is rewarded: I myself like to build everything up and then crush my enemies but this is just not difficult. Rushing is harder and that's why there is a reward for it.
