The shadows of destruction begin to loom on the horizon once a human mage uncovers a dark and powerful secret dating back to the remote past of the Elven race.

However, the Elves cannot allow this forbidden knowledge to fall into the hands of others and thus imperil the world. For the first time in countless years, this ancient race must venture forth and interfere with events transpiring in the lands of man. With the renegade mage in their sights, the sorceress Gilwen and ranger-lord Seagate set off together, unaware that beliefs and friendships alike will soon be tested...

Elven Legacy reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
"Elven Legacy" lap strategy with Fantasy Bonds and RPG Mechanics. "Elven Legacy" is the Sequel to "Fantasy Wars." Anyone who knows "Fantasy Wars" knows "Elven Legacy." There were only small but meaningful Improvements to the Predecessor. This Time, the Game 1 Campaign (Elves) includes over 10 Missions. At 3 Points in the Campaign, you decide between 2 different Levels as the next Mission. Each individual Mission has a set Time limit (Gold, Silver, Bronze) on each of the 3 Levels of difficulty. If the Bronze Time Limit is also over, you have to repeat the Mission. In Addition, in 5 Missions you have the Option (if they are made to gold) to play a Bonus mission at a time. In addition to the Campaign, you can also play 9 Individual Missions. (In the bonus and Individual Missions you also play the People, Orcs and dwarfs unfortunately only 2 new Cards and 7 taken from Predecessors). In total, you have 50 Hours of play for your Money. The Elves have the best Eminities Compared to the other Peoples. They have the strongest Long-distance Fighters, offensive, and Defensive units as well as Air Units. Since you improve them between missions through Experience and Battles to Level 5, a Level 5 Elves unit usually doesn't stand in the Way of much. Very fun! The Main Heroes can also be lelent again up to a maximum Level 10 and then, for example, Have the strongest Spells of the Game. The RPG bond of Leveling Works wonderfully again and you have again a Lot of meaningful Improvements for your Units. The AI as an Opponent is really good again. It again specifically attacks weak or battered Units, leaves too strong its own Units alone and sometimes does your Life not light-very well! My Criticisms of the Predecessor have also been improved: 1. The cutscenes/Intro/Outro are no longer as ugly as in the Previous one. And the In-game Graphics have never been and are quite pretty again this time, especially when you zoom in on the EIntleties. So overall a nice Presentation, despite a certain Age. 2. The unfair Degree Of Difficulty in some Parts of the Predecessor Was balanced in "ELven Legacy." The Game is still quite happy, but you can create any Mission of the Campaign in the gold time limit. This can no longer be possible in some Bonus missions (since they are heavier again), but it does not matter, since you always get the same Reward with Gold/Silber/Bronze time limit. Unfortunately, the handbook, which was taken over almost 1:1, and the 7 single-player Missions from its Predecessor, taken over is somewhat loveless. To the DLC (in Order of release): 1st Elven Legacy Ranger-Campaign With 12 new Missions, 3 new Heroes and the now playable Human Faction. Too light, you get too much Money and free Units. The Main Heroes are also too stark-> no Challenge. Conclusion: Pretty and heavy Lap Strategy that corrects the Mistakes of the Predecessor and lasts for a long time for little Money. For Fans of the Genre absolutely recommended, Newbies should definitely start on "easy." Tip: In the Forum is a Link to a Patch that puts the Game (Surface, Subtitles, Tooltips) in German.
