At the start of a scenario you are required to build a stockpile with no cost.
After you build the required granary you can delete the stockpile for gold, then build another one for free. Repeat this for quick money. You can use this trick to get your buildings up early.
Just use the trick, set up a market, and just buy raw materials needed to purchase buildings and units. Note: Materials in the stockpile disappear if you delete the building. Take advantage of pausing the game.
Defenses and units will be waiting long before the enemy has a chance to blink.
When you are Arthur and are playing on the dragon island, put a siege camp in your castle and make two Enchanted Orbs. Put them on the bridge and have them attack the end of the bridge. Any enemy running across the bridge will get killed. Be careful because this also kill your units. If needed, have it to stop then run your army across.
The quick way to is firstly, you must have wood coming in quickly and your rationing must be put to double. You need your taxes at high or higher.
Then put lots of weapon makers (e.g. blacksmith, poleturner...). With a lot of wood and gold you can get weapon fast without buying them and losing a lot of gold.
First you have to battle your way through Saxon Warlords to reach Sir Bedievere Once you get him back to your castle you must protect your castle because Saxon Warlords have hired Pictish Boat Warriors to assult your castle. They will come from the sea While you're doing this you are waiting for Merlin to return from Ireland then you must with the aid of Sir Bedievere and Merlin you must destroy the Saxon stronghold around the Stone Circle.
WHen that is done you must build Camelot while under attack from Saxons Its actually easy but you must complete it before Lady Guenivere arrives.
After you place your stockpile and your granary just delete the stockpile and you get gold then put another down for free Just keep doing that You will evuentually need to put raw materials in the stockpile but thats how you get gold quickly. Once you have lots of gold you can have your defenses up before your enemy has time to blink.
