Strategy[]

  • Starting with Eataine and Tyrion is a convenient way to learn Total War or just enjoy a easy initial period, as Tyrion starts at the mouth of Ulthuan with an isolated Dark Elf faction right next door (the intended first target). With a free Eagle Claw Bolt Thrower and a Phoenix in his stack, Tyrion can roll over early opposition, while the flat upkeep reductions to spearmen, archers, and Silver Helms make building an army quite easy in the early and mid-game, particularly with a mage (Lore of Life) in the army to maintain their HP and the Martial Prowess bonus. Late-game Tyrion can be an absolute beast, as he gets a flat -1 turn modifier for elite unit recruitment factionwide.
  • Diplomatically, Tyrion is on an even better footing, since he is close to other High Elf factions and can reliably deal and trade with them, leading to confederations in due time.
  • Of course, there are drawbacks: Tyrion is really nothing to phone home about in terms of personal prowess, at least not until you dump points into his personal combat prowess and the Bloodline of Aenarion and make him into a good duelist capable of taking on melee-focused lords from other factions (Kroq-Gar, Queek Headtaker, and Malekith).
