Guys, first of all I had a blast playing mage knight. Great solo experience!

I played with Goldyx and after a slow start and a couple of wounds from a summoner early on, I manage to take making potions as first skill that helped me a lot.
I conquered a couple of mage towers, a keep, a dungeon and a spawn.

After struggling with the first city, I had to conquer it in 2 assaults, I made an epic combo in the 3rd night that gave me an easy assault to the level 8 city.
I was able to draw 4 cards with motivation and tranquillity powered by a green mana token plus the +1 bonus of the keep I was in. With a lot of cards in hand I assaulted the city using the spell that saved my life, wings of night. With my 4 unspent moves (I used the old version since I have only the core game but I had 2 more move even for the new version so no cheating ) I made the 4 defenders unable to attack so I attacked them without taking damage. I threw away my Sword of Justice and doubled all my basic attacks dropping physical resistance from my enemies. Thanks to my 4 units and a couple of attack cards I defeated the 4 defenders without taking a single wounds, it was crazy and fun.
It took me 30 minutes to figure out the correct play but in the end it was worth it.
Final score 189 fame and scenario beaten!
Epic game and ultra fun, I love it.

Ciap

Congratulations! Nothing like a perfect assault on a city. And that 30 minutes is exactly why I have no desire to play this with anyone else. I like to take my time and work it all out.

I won on my second game. Mage Knight is actually not very difficult to beat, but difficult to master.

I've played three solo conquests and won all three... it's not that hard to win. It's much harder to win with a great score.
