    6.  Revision History
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    1.                             Introduction
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Walter is a moderate difficulty campaign in KUF:Heroes, and should be played 
    before tackling the tougher campaigns of the Dark Legion.  For the best story 
    and learning curve, I recommend playing Ellen first, then Rupert, then either
    Leinhart or Walter.  Walter's campaign is shorter, but possibly slightly more
    difficult than Leinhart's
     
    Walter's campaign will answer quite a few questions left open in KUF: Crusaders,
    e.g. what happened to start the war?  Why did the Patriarch act as he did?  And
    why did the Patriarchal Guard rebel and awaken Encablossa?  We also find out 
    what REALLY happened to Rithrin (the Kaedes Dark Elf Archer Captain).  We also
    get to know Justino (the haughty Captain from Ellen's campaign) quite a bit
    better.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    2.                                Walter
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Walter is the captain of the Patriarchal Guard, and the highest ranking and most
    respected warrior in Ecclesia. He and the Patriarch both were blessed with 
    hearing the voice of "The Oracle" and are the only two parties (aside from 
    Regnier) with any knowledge of the Ancient Heart and its power.  Walter
    is a man of deep faith in God, and believes in doing God's will no matter what
    the cost.  He is the quintissential religious fanatic.
    
    For those that played KUF: Crusaders, Walter is the only playable character in
    Heroes that was not an adjutant officer in Crusaders.  He appeared briefly in 
    Kendal's campaign where he was introduced as Kendal's best friend and Thomas' 
    father.  His actions and the bizzare actions of the Patriarch drove most of the 
    events in Kendal's campaign, leading up to the awakening of Encablossa at 
    Nowart.
    
    With a few notable exceptions (the Altar of Destruction), Walter's missions are 
    not terribly difficult, and and all of his unit selection is identical to what 
    you probably played through with Rupert or Ellen.  As a melee fighter, Walter 
    is on the slow and powerful side.  He uses a large shield and mace, and wades 
    deliberately through combat, smashing aside whatever he comes up against.  
    
    His best moves are his defensive moves, either a retaliatory strike or a 
    riposte. Both are executed with B.  The retaliatory strike can be used against
    an enemy that has just hit Walter, and throws them back with a powerful shield
    thrust. The riposte requires better timing, and must be exectued just as an 
    enemy is beginning their attack.  It interrupts their attack with a very 
    powerful strike that also nets an SP bonus.  Practice it and use it often.
    
    Combos:	 X X X     Quick slash combo
    	 X X Y     Quick slashes + Spinning slash
    	 X X A     Quick slash + overhead smash
    	 A A       Double overhead smash
    	 A A Y     Double overhead smash + thrust
    	 A A -> Y  Double overhead smash + open swipe
    	 A + X     Shield bash
    	 Hold Y    Holy Flame
    	 B (right after being hit)	Retaliatory strike
    	 B (right before being hit)	Riposte
    
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    3.                           Adjutant Officers
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Walter's adjutants are Lance and Alan.  Neither one takes an active part in the
    story, unlike other Hero's adjutants.  Instead, Justino fills this role for 
    Walter, but unfortunately, he isn't available as an adjutant!  He only appears 
    as leader of an allied Spearmen troop in several missions.  
    
    Since Alan comes pre-loaded with Fire skill 12 and Kaleidoflamma, I would
    boost his fire skill to 25 (the max) as soon as possible.  He will be the source
    of most of the damage you deal in melee.  
    
    Swap out Lance as soon as possible for a mercenary mage with Holy skill and the
    Heal ability (you may need to equip your merc with a Staff or Booster to make 
    this available.)  Lance makes a fine Mortar or Ballista officer, IMHO.

    4.                            MISSION WALKTHROUGH
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    4.1                       Mission 1:  Greyhampton
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Overview:
    ---------
    Walter's campaign begins with a meeting with Rithrin, the Dark Elf Archer 
    Captain from KUF: Crusaders.  For those not in-the-know, Rithrin is part of a
    rebel faction of Dark Elves called Kaedes.  This faction wishes to over-throw
    the regime of Valedmar and establish a Dark Elf nation.  The purpose of the 
    meeting is to establish a secret cooperation between Ecclesia and the Kaedes.
    Of course, this would be blasphemous and scandalous were it to get out to the
    general public that Holer-than Thou Ecclesia was dealing with rebel Dark Elves.
    
    Enter the hapless Hironeiden scout...  When he is noticed by Walter and Justino
    fleeing back to the Hironeiden camp after spying on the illicit meeting, a 
    decision is made to exterminate the village of Greyhampton to ensure that the
    word doesn't spread.  Walter justifies this to his men as being for the greater
    good of humankind.  He tells them to kill everyone in the village, and to make
    it look like a Dark Legion attack.
    
    This board is fairly simple, and despite its obviously morbid overtones, it's 
    quite fun!  The idea is to burn two guard camps, then take down the walls of 
    Greyhampton, and finally to chase down and kill all of the hapless peasants that
    try to flee. 
    
    
    Unit selection:
    ---------------
    Walter Infantry - lvl. 20
    Cavalry - lvl. 18
    Archer - lvl. 18
    
    First, send out a scout to assess the enemy resistance at the guard camps. 
    Both are protected by  Infantry units and an Archer.  Draw the Infantry off
    with a Scout, and engage them out of the range of their Archers.  Once the 
    Infantry are dealt with, bust the Archers with the following tactic:
    
    *TIP:  Ranged Support Neutralization with Cavalry*
    * Ranged support units can be murderous if they're allowed to fire unchecked 
    * into a melee that your troops are fighting in.  For this reason, you'll always
    * want to deal with the enemy ranged support first, OR, neutralize them until 
    * they can be engaged in melee with your main melee troop(s).  Since ranged
    * support can neither fire nor use magic while they're in melee, you will want
    * to engage them as quickly as possible while taking the minimum amount of 
    * damage moving in.  Cavalry are ideal for this since they move so quickly,
    * though other Range resistant units can be used as well (such as Ghouls or
    * Elementals).  The advantage to using this tactic is one of speed, and also 
    * one of priority.  Oftentimes there are bigger fish to fry on the field, and
    * you'll want to deal with other threats with your Hero's troop without having
    * to get peppered by debilitating spells and missile fire.  Once you've 
    * engaged the ranged support with your main force, you can then move the 
    * Cavalry back out to do what they do best: charge around the field racking up
    * SP.
    
    Be careful with the Spearmen, and don't get near them with the Cavalry until 
    you've engaged the in melee.  They will OWN your Cavalry if you make the 
    mistake of using the Y command to send an all out attack.  Once Walter has
    engaged them in melee, you're perfectly safe to charge through the melee over
    and over again to rack up SP.  I guess they can't use their spears if they're 
    getting hit over the head with a mace...
    
    If you want to clear a battlefield fast, use Kaleidoflamma (available on the
    Black button on the controller).  This ability is broken, and comes standard
    with your Adjutant Officer Mage.  
    
    Top camp
    ----------------------------
    Battle:  2 Infantry lvl. 19
    	 1 Archer lvl. 18
    ----------------------------
    
    Bottom camp
    ----------------------------
    Battle:  1 Infantry lvl. 19
    	 1 Spearmen lvl. 17
    	 1 Archer lvl. 18
    ----------------------------
    
    After eliminating the guards, burn the camps using the Archer's Fire Arrow
    special ability (use the D-Pad -> to select it) to target the camp.  It's
    highlighted on your mini-map and also by a glowing green circle on the ground.
    If you got hurt, use Curatio.  Your Archers came equipped with Holy (as they 
    should).
    
    ----------------------------
    Battle:  2 Infantry lvl. 14
    ----------------------------
    You'll probably run into the Infantry patrols at some point.  These are 
    stationed in the vicinity of each of the camps, and may attack in support of 
    the other Infantry.
    
    Move Northeast to the walls of Grayhampton.  Don't use the Fire Arrows just yet.
    You'll be attacked from different directions by two waves of Peasant troop.
    From one side will be Infantry, from the other, Spearmen.  Send your Cavalry
    to tie up the Infantry with Archer support, and Walter to take on the Spearmen.
    If you use Kaleidoflamma, these Peasant units will die unbelievably quickly.
    Just to keep it simple, make sure you kill ALL the Peasant militia before 
    setting fire to the walls.
    
    -----------------------------------
    Battle:  3 Peasant Infantry lvl. 10
    	 3 Peasant Spearmen lvl. 10
    -----------------------------------
    -----------------------------------
    Battle:  3 Peasant Infantry lvl. 10
    	 3 Peasant Spearmen lvl. 10
    -----------------------------------
    
    Set fire to the walls in zones (East, West and Center)  Three adjacent markers
    define a zone.  When a whole zone is on fire, three Peasants and six
    Peasant militia will materialize.  Concentrate on killing the Peasants first,
    then take care of the militia second.  If any of the Peasants reach the marked
    areas at the Southwest corner, you will fail the mission automatically.  Don't
    set all the zones on fire at once.  Take them one by one, and this will be a 
    cakewalk.  Also, be sure to spread your units out along the wall to intercept
    all three peasants immediately.
    
    Eastern Zone
    -----------------------------------
    Battle:  3 Peasant Infantry lvl. 10
    	 3 Peasant Spearmen lvl. 10
    	 3 Peasant lvl. 3
    -----------------------------------
    
    Center Zone
    -----------------------------------
    Battle:  3 Peasant Infantry lvl. 10
    	 3 Peasant Spearmen lvl. 10
    	 3 Peasant lvl. 3
    -----------------------------------
    
    Western Zone
    -----------------------------------
    Battle:  3 Peasant Infantry lvl. 10
    	 3 Peasant Spearmen lvl. 10
    	 3 Peasant lvl. 3
    -----------------------------------
    
    If you had, or are having difficulty with this mission, you should play through
    Ellen and Rupert's missions first.  This mission is, and should be, quite easy
    if you take it nice and slow.
    
    I finished with 5962 EXP and 18722 Gold (and a heavy, gloomy frown).
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    4.2                      Base 1:  Advance Base
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Time to get drunk...
    
    Operations:  Justino tells Walter that he's been appointed Captain of the 
    Patriarchal Guards.  He also says that Thomas is being looked after by Kendal.
    Overnight, a soldier named Jefferson hangs himself out of grief.  Walter decides
    to doubletime to Eccelsia to distract them.
    
    Barracks:  Time to level up the troops!  There are several areas you can focus
    on, and don't be afraid to experiment since you can always reset a troop to 
    recoup all the EXP you spent by using the X button from the troop selection
    screen.  You should be far more careful about your equipment purchases.  Early
    on, EXP boosting equipment is the best.  Late on, HP and SP boosting items are
    the best.  Armor is always the most expensive, so be sure that any elemental 
    resistances you purchase are going to be worth your while.  Try to bolster your
    strengths since you won't be able to effectively compensate for weaknesses 
    anyway.  Strategically, it's much more advantageous to walk a troop of Knights
    into a hail of arrows to take nearly NO damage than it is to fly a troop of 
    Storm Riders into those same arrows to take average damage.  The things you 
    MUST do include: Change Jobs for Walter's troop to Knights, Marion's troop to 
    Longbowmen, Kelsey's troop to Heavy Cavalry.  Marion and Kelsey will both need
    two points of Melee skill each, but these are points well spent.  Next,
    determine who will be going with Walter into the next mission and spend all your
    points on them.  I strongly suggest either Cavalry or Mortars
    
    * TIP: Troop Min-Maxing*
    * This trick works really well if you are facing a tough mission where a small
    * number of units are allowed to participate (as in the Altar of Destruction).
    * Use the X button from the troop selection screen to strip all your units of
    * their Skill points for EXP.  Then spend this EXP on only the units you will
    * choose to take into the next mission.
    
    Pub:  Some of the soldiers offer their dark philosophies.  Pub chatter is a 
    good plot development area if you care about the finer points of the KUF 
    universe.  If you don't, skip to the Hire Mercenaries area.  Don't worry about
    the skills the mercenary comes loaded with since you'll be able to reset them
    and build them back however you like.  Instead, look for the right combination
    of available skills to build the troop type you want.  Here and now, I strongly
    recommend hiring a Mage (Rian or Gagamel) to swap in to Walter's troop to 
    replace Lance.  Load him with Holy, and equip him with a staff or booster to
    be able to cast Heal while in melee.  This ability, coupled with Kaleidoflamma
    will be the bread-and-butter of melee combat while controlling Walter's troop.
    It's also handy to have an extra unit to cast Curatio in case you don't want to
    bring Longbows into a mission.
    
    Main Gate:  The Main Gate will take you to Ecclesia.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    4.3                       Base 2:  Ecclesia
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Operations:  The Patriarch meets with Walter to congratulate him.  He also says
    that Hironeiden has invaded Hexter, and that Kendal would be leading a Crusade
    to retake the Holy Ground.  Justino seems upset that he can't join the crusade,
    but instead has to accompany Walter and the Patriarch to chase around the will
    of the Oracle.
    
    Barrack:  You can do everything here you could do at the Advance Base.  If you
    anticipate having trouble at the Altar of Destruction, I would suggest using the
    Troop Min-Maxing tip above to max out Walter and one other troop.
    
    Pub:  This is a mirror of the encounter in KUF: Crusaders where Kendal and 
    Walter meet up.  Walter also meets up with his son Thomas and asks that Kendal
    take him on the Crusade to get some trigger time in. 
    
    Main Gate:  If you leave Ecclesia, you won't be able to get back, so make sure
    you REALLY want to leave.  Once you do leave, you'll be sent to the Altar of 
    Destruction (possibly the most frustrating mission in the entire game).
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    4.4                        Base 3: Advance Base
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Wait a minute!  Aren't you supposed to go to the Altar of Destruction?  Well,
    yes.  But you don't have to quite yet if you don't want to.  It's far better
    to back out of the Altar of Destruction, I think, and tackle some Unknown 
    mission first to build EXP.  This way, you'll have an easier time tackling all
    those lvl. 23 Flame Wraiths, and be able to purchase some heavier troops to 
    stomp on the endless stream of Dark Legion for max EXP.  Hit the Start button
    to exit to World Map, then back out to the Advance Base. He he...

    Unit selection:
    ---------------
    Walter Infantry - locked
    3 Free 
    1 Support
    
    Overview:
    ---------
    Although you don't have to complete the Unknown missions, they're fun and not 
    too difficult since they're search and destroy missions.  Use them to build gold
    and EXP for the more difficult story-line missions.
    
    Walkthrough:
    ------------
    This board is a desert with no trees and a bright sun in the West.  Work your
    way to the Western edge of the board ASAP to avoid being blinded.  Hunt down 
    each enemy one (or two or three) at a time after Scouting their position.  All
    of the enemies here are fairly easy and low level.  I ran into the following, 
    and you can expect something similar (there's a degree of variability in the
    troop types on Unknown missions).  The unique challenges here are the Elemental
    and the Dirigible.  Don't stand under Dirigibles or you'll be really massively
    hurt in a hurry.  Longbows kill Dirigibles VERY quickly, however, so make sure
    to focus on the Dirigible first while keeping the Longbows out of melee.  
    Elementals are all universally strong versus melee and ranged attacks.  They
    have unique vulnerabilities, and are generally best addressed with either
    Cavalry, seige weapons, and/or the Hero.  The Hero is the most effective way
    to kill an Elemental quickly (similar to Scorpions). Check the Troop Guide at
    the end of this FAQ for strengths and weaknesses of the Elementals.

    Walter Infantry - locked
    1 Free (Cavalry Strongly recommended)
    
    
    Overview:
    ---------
    Welcome to possibly the most difficult and frustrating mission in the entire
    game.  Difficult because you'll face an unlimited number of well mixed enemies.
    Frustrating because the object is not to crush your enemies, but rather to 
    slink around the battlefield and merely survive.  Oh, and you have to escort
    a braindead moron through a hot battlefield.
    
    You'll start out in the Southwest corner of the map with Justino (Spearmen) as 
    backup.  The battle itself is being fought in the center of the board.  An 
    unlimited supply of Dark Legion units will be pouring in from the North.  They
    have the sun at their back, and they are relentless and aggressive.  The 
    Hironeiden fighters issue from the Northeast corner, and they do not re-spawn 
    as quickly as the Dark Legion.  As time goes on, they will be outnumbered and 
    outfought, pushed more and more into the Northeast corner until (probably) they
    are finally eliminated.  You can choose to help out Hironeiden, and if you do, 
    they can more than hold their own while you rack up EXP.
    
    The goal is to find Rithrin in the Nortwest quadrant and escort him through the
    hot zone down to the Southwest corner where the Ancient Heart is located.  Of 
    course, the Ancient Heart is guarded by 5 very aggressive Flame Wraiths who 
    cast Meteor seemingly at will.
    
    Walkthrough:
    ------------
    I strongly recommend Cavalry, though this mission is also possible with Mortars,
    Longbows, or pretty much any other unit.  Cavalry is the best choice because 
    you will be able to rack up HUGE amounts of SP, which means you'll be able to 
    cast spells to clear the battlefield instead of getting into melee.  If you
    want big EXP and big Gold, go with Cavalry.

    Getting to Rithrin
    ------------------
    You'll begin in the Southwest, and will have to move East and then North to 
    get to Rithrin.  Since you'll be walking right through the thick of the battle,
    you will be best served by aiding Hironeiden for a few minutes to push back and
    thin out the Dark Legion forces.  Since you only need Walter to rendezvous with
    Rithrin, leave your other unit in the center behind the Hironeiden lines to 
    support the Hironeiden troops and collect SP.  If you're using Cavalry, send 
    them on a tour of the battlefield.  You'll quickly max out your SP and be able 
    to cast Meteor repeatedly to eliminate most of the Dark Elf Archers that are
    standing in your way.  If you don't take these Archers out from a distance, you
    might find yourself pinned down under heavy fire from three or four Archer
    troops.  Once these Archers are eliminated or thinned out enough to walk by, 
    you'll be able to walk Walter around the point and up to Rithrin.  Meet with 
    Rithrin and he'll make some snide comments.  Make sure he finishes his spiel 
    before you walk away.
    
    Escorting Rithrin
    -----------------
    Make sure Rithrin is following you at all times.  Not only is he dumb as a herd
    of cattle, but he's twice as slow.  If you get too far ahead, he'll simply stop
    and proceed to get clobbered.  Try to keep the path ahead clear, and move
    deliberately.  Skirt the edges of the battle and try to stay clear of the 
    clumps of Dark Elf Archers.  Cavalry and a few Meteors will clear these out
    easily.  The Swamp Mammoth should have appeared by now, and will be parked in 
    the middle of the field.  Stay away from his feet, and he probably will not 
    fire on your troop.  If you possibly can, get Rithrin and Walter well behind the
    Hironeiden line before turning to take on the Flame Wraiths.
    
    Flame Wraiths
    -------------
    Another reason to bring Cavalry...  Flame Wraiths are weak against Cavalry and
    their Meteors are less effective against a fast moving target.  You can keep 
    Walter and Rithrin clear of danger while you wear down the Wraiths and simply 
    pull back for healing when you need it.  You can also use the SP you'll gain 
    from the Cavalry charges here to cast Meteor into the thick of the battle for 
    more kills, and more gold.  If you brought Longbows, they'll be nearly useless
    against Flame Wraiths, so you'll be best off using a Scout to lure each Wraith
    troop out one by one.  Melee them and make sure you have healing support.  If 
    you brought Mortars, Catapults, or Ballistae, the same strategy applies, but 
    of course you won't have the healing support.  This is a much more difficult
    scenario, and all the more important to lure them out one at a time.  If you
    brought any other unit types, you're just foolish.  Sappers or Pyrotechs might
    be useful, but they're way too vulnerable to attack in my opinion, and on this
    board, there aren't many places to hide nor are there many quiet spots to lay 
    traps.
    
    After the Flame Wraiths are eliminated, lead Rithrin down to the marked area.
    After he has lead you to the Ancient Heart, the Godfather ERR, Patriarch appears
    and strikes Rithrin down!  It was a setup all along...
    
    Using Cavalry, I finished this mission with max EXP of 14000 (7000 for each 
    troop) and a whopping 94667 Gold!  Had to blow through a lot of SP for that one,
    and I could have stuck around to rack up more.  With Longbows and Mortars, I
    finished with substantially less EXP and Gold, and with a lot more trouble.

    Operations:  The Patriarch tells Walter that he wants to hang on to the Ancient
    Heart a while longer to "study" it.
    
    Barrack:  Level up your troops.  By now, you should have enough EXP to purchase
    a troop of Bomber Wings.  You'll be able to use Support troops for the rest of
    the Walter's campaign, so you should invest in one.  Storm Riders are a second
    best choice given their profound vulnerability to Archers.  They make great 
    scouts, but can't deal or take enough damage to stand up to an enemy in a 
    straight fight.  Bomber Wings, on the other hand, are able to deal a great
    amount of damage if they have a high enough Gunpowder skill.
    
    Pub:  Justino thinks the Patriarch has lost it.  So does Walter, he just won't
    admit it as yet.  The Ancient Heart is corrupting his judgement.

    Overview:
    ---------
    The Dark Legion has finally caught up to Walter and the Patriarch.  The goal of
    this mission is to first protect, then destroy the Patriarch.  Sensing a turning
    point?  After a while, even Walter can no longer rationalize the Patriarch's 
    behavior.
    
    The intro to the mission says to prepare for enemy cavalry.  You will see a 
    cavalry unit, but it's nothing to get too excited about, and certainly not 
    enough to justify wasting a slot on Spearmen.  Longbows, Mortars, and a Bomber
    Wing can more than take care of the one Orc Rider you'll see.
    
    Walkthrough:
    ------------
    -------------------------------------
    Battle:  2 Orc Heavy Infantry lvl. 26
    	 2 Orc Infantry lvl. 24
    	 1 Orc Axemen lvl. 25
             2 Ghoul lvl. 25
    	 2 Dark Elf Archer lvl. 26
             1 Dirigible lvl. 25
    	 1 Orc Rider lvl. 25
    --------------------------------------
    You'll start out right in the thick of things, and probably have to scramble
    to get your ranged units out of melee.  The Patriarch is fighting to the West
    and may need help later on in the battle, so keep an eye on his life bar.  If
    he dies, you fail.  Take on the closest infantry units first, then move out to
    assist the Patriarchal Guard units fighting in melees to the North and West.
    
    A troop of Orc Riders will show up and try to kill the Patriarch.  They may 
    also ignore the Patriarch and try to take on your units.  Target them above all
    other units because they can cause substantial damage if not killed quickly. If
    you didn't bring Spearmen (hopefully you didn't), use your ranged units and 
    Bomber Wing to target them.
    
    This battle is a little chaotic, but not overwhelming.  You should finish with
    full health.  Keep moving West, then Northeast to engage the following lone 
    patrol troops:
    
    -------------------------------------
    Battle:  2 Orc Infantry lvl. 25
             1 Ghoul lvl. 25
    	 1 Dark Elf Archer lvl. 26
    	 1 Orc Rider lvl. 25
    --------------------------------------
    
    No problem so far.  When you get to the large field to the North, be careful.  
    A fairly large Dark Legion force will materialize out of nowhere as soon as 
    Walter passes a certain point near the North center region of the map.  You 
    will be surrounded, so be prepared by keeping your units close together and 
    be ready to scramble the ranged units to safety.
    ---------------------------------------------
    Battle:  3 Orc Heavy Infantry lvl. 26
    	 1 Orc Infantry lvl. 24
    	 1 Orc Axemen lvl. 25
             1 Ghoul lvl. 25
    	 1 Dark Elf Archer lvl. 26
             1 Dirigible lvl. 25
    	 1 Regnier Orc Heavy Infantry lvl. 33
    ---------------------------------------------
    You'll be attacked from the North, East and West simultaneously.  Once again, 
    engage the closest units first, then move to help the Patriarch's men.  About
    halfway through the fight, Regnier will appear from the South and engage the
    Patriarch's unit (unless you stand in his way, in which case he'll engage 
    whoever he comes up against).  Try to avoid Regnier until you've taken out all
    the Dark Legion troops scattered around the battlefield.  Make sure the 
    Patriarch doesn't die, however, or you will fail the mission.  Give him healing
    if he needs it, but let him get depleted at least a little bit.  It will make
    your life easier in the long run.  
    
    Once you join the battle between the Patriarch and Regnier, you will trigger a 
    cutscene in which the Patriarch commands Regnier to retreat by invoking the 
    power of the Ancient Heart.  After Regnier retreats, the Patriarch reveals his
    plan to use power of the Ancient Heart to conquer and unite all of Bersia.  At
    this point, Walter challenges him, and is excommunicated on the spot.  Walter
    commands his men to take the Ancient Heart from the Patriarch, and battle
    begins.  You'll find yourself suddenly and mysteriously teleported right to the
    front gates of Ecclesia.  Not a very tactically sound position, if you ask me.
    
    You'll have a few moments to flee.  Go as far South and East as possible to get
    away from the Ecclesian units issuing from the Northwest corner.  You can stand
    and fight, but it's advantageous to string out the Ecclesian units and get out
    of range of their Mortars.  Be prepared to scramble, though.  Use a spread
    formation to run faster and avoid damage from Lightning that will be cast at 
    you from behind.  Watch Walter's heatlh especially since he's vulnerable to 
    Lightning.
    ---------------------------------------------
    Battle:  2 Knight lvl. 27
    	 2 Paladin lvl. 28
    	 1 Longbow lvl. 27
             1 Spearmen lvl. 28
    	 1 Mortar lvl. 28
    	 1 Patriarch Heavy Infantry lvl. 30
    ---------------------------------------------
    The Knights and Paladins will most likely be damaged, so take them out
    first (once you're out of Mortar range of course).  The Longbows, Spearmen,
    and Mortars are fresh, and very dangerous.  Take the Longbows on if you're 
    still out of Mortar range, otherwise, split your forces and make sure you
    melee with both to stop the bleeding.  The Patriarch will avoid combat, so 
    don't worry about him until the very end.  And it goes without saying that you
    need to keep your Cavalry out of range of these high level Spearmen.  Expect 
    to get seriously hurt during this fight and maybe even lose a unit.  It's 
    tough to get ambushed like this and have to scramble all of your ranged 
    support units out of melee while getting bombarded by Mortar fire.  Luckily, 
    this is one of the few cheap shots KUF: Heroes will take at you.
    
    Once all of the above enemies are eliminated, your mission will be a success.
    I finished with 13000 EXP and 31680 Gold.  Expect less EXP if you lost a troop.

    Justino supports and believes in Walter.
    
    Barrack:  Level up the soldiers!  You have two more Unknown missions, then
    another Brimstone mission vs. Dark Legion and Ecclesian units.  With this
    kind of variety of opposition, you have to go with a well balanced force.  I
    suggest you max out the following unit selection: Walter - Heavy Infantry,
    Heavy Cavalry, Longbows, Mortars, Bomber Wing.  If you're tempted to go with
    an Elemental unit, I would go with either a Flame Wraith or Ice Maiden unit
    due to the fact that their resistances are more in line with the damage types
    you'll face in Walter's missions.  See Section 5. of this guide for tips on 
    Elemental units.
    
    Pub:  The soldiers have some things to say as usual.  You can hire a Merc if

    Hey!  An Ambush!  For them, maybe.  These guys won't know what hit them.  This 
    is probably Walter's most fun mission.  You'll see quite a few enemies, but
    you'll also have a number of fairly strong allies.  Because you enter the level
    well behind the front lines, and with a full view of the battlefield, you'll 
    have plenty of time to swoop in on all the melees in progress and lay a little 
    bit of smack down.  You'll see two Heavy Cavalry troops, but they shouldn't give
    you a lot of trouble, even if you aren't using Spearmen.  A strong support troop
    can chase them down and keep them running while you fire away with ranged 
    troops.
    
    Walkthrough:
    ------------
    You'll have some allies in this mission holding lines to the North.  These
    will be the main battle areas, but before you can jump in, you will need to mop
    up some flankers coming in from the Southeast.  There are little areas of 
    combat scattered all around the map in the following places.  Periodic 
    reinforcements will issue from locations around the map perimeter, but nothing
    too shocking.  Cavalry will enter the field around halfway through, and near
    the end, a Ballista will appear.  Nothing here should give you overly much 
    trouble if you keep all your troops together and pick your battles one by one.

    	 1 Knight lvl. 33
    ----------------------------------
    Take care of these units first, since they're the closest.  They're also the 
    enemy's heaviest concentration of ranged support.  The Cavalry and Knights are
    reinforcements that will come in toward the mid and late phases of the battle.

    position.  Take them out after eliminating the ranged support troops in the
    Southeast.

    This is a small cluster of melee units.  Since they don't have ranged support,
    you can send your Bomber Wing over to wreak havoc.

    	 1 Ballista lvl. 34
    ----------------------------------
    Only a few enemy troops occupy the center, and these will likely move to support
    the other areas of combat.  The Mortars stationed here should be dealt with
    as soon as possible.

    	 1 Heavy Cavalry lvl. 34
    ----------------------------------
    This is the main theater of combat operations.  Toward the end, you will almost
    certainly end up here.  There are a lot of enemies, but you have a lot of help
    also.  Be opportunistic and don't get surrounded.

    Overview:
    ---------
    Nowart already?  This is Walter's final mission, and it's a fairly tough and
    frustrating one.  Did I mention how much I HATE Wyverns?  They're absolutely
    without a doubt my least favorite unit to face because they just seem to do
    a broken amount of damage to the Hero's troop.  This board is chock full of 
    Wyverns, and you'll be forced to stay in the woods to avoid them.  The mission
    also has an escort element (you have to rescue Justino in the beginning), and
    it lacks a decisive show of force (you're forced to slink around the edges of
    combat at the end).  All around irritating...  Here's another irritation: this
    is the first and only opportunity Walter has to field two support units.  And
    yet, there are so many Wyverns and Archers in the mix that your support units
    will spend all of their time running and hiding instead of fighting.  They will
    become such a liability and distraction that they aren't even worth bringing 
    (unless you just want disposable scouts).  
    
    Because of all the Wyverns and Storm Riders, Longbows will reign supreme in 
    this mission.  You would think Ballistae would be good also, but they are a 
    little too slow considering all the running you'll be doing in this mission.
    They risk being caught out in the open and forcing you into rescuing them.
    
    Walkthrough:
    ------------
    You'll start in the Southeast behind an advancing line of allies.  Your allies
    will quickly engage the following enemies

    Battle:  4 Orc Infantry lvl. 32
             3 Scorpion lvl. 35
    	 1 Dark Elf Archer lvl. 37
    	 2 Wyvern lvl. 37
    ----------------------------------
    Ignore this battle for now and head straight North and West around the outer 
    edge of the map.  You'll get a chance to mop up later, but you have to save 
    Justino first.  Justino is in the Northwest corner, and he will die if you 
    don't come for him immediately.
    
    
    Northwest (Justino's battle)

             1 Scorpion lvl. 35
    	 4 Dark Elf Archer lvl. 37
    	 2 Wyvern lvl. 37
    ----------------------------------
    Once you get close to Justino, he'll be considered rescued and you can slow your
    roll.  Take out all the units in the area, then proceed South to eliminate the 
    remainder of the Dark Legion forces.  You should finish this section with very
    little damage taken.  Be sure to stay under the trees if there are still Wyverns
    about.  When all of the Dark Legion vanguard are defeated, Walter will rally
    the troops back at the mouth of the cave and give a rousing speech.  Get ready
    for some chaos...
    
    The following unit types will flood the field from all directions, fighting you
    and each other.

    If you try to stand and fight, you'll quickly be overwhelmed and die.  Instead,
    you must retreat to the edge of the map and hide like a complete wuss, 
    preferably under the trees where the big bad Wyverns and Storm Riders can't 
    get to you.  The point is to get the Dark Legion and Ecclesian units to fight
    each other.  If you can do this, and then wait for a little while, Kendal will
    finally appear to end your misery.  When you get the message that Kendal has 
    appeared, head Southwest and engage his unit in combat.  That's all you have to
    do to trigger the cutscene that ends the level.  This cutscene is essentially
    the same as the one in KUF: Crusaders that portrays the awakening of 
    Encablossa.  Come on Phantagram!  Recycled FMV?  Please...  What's the point of
    making a sequel? Oh, yeah, to make money with a minimum of overhead.  
    But I digress.
    
    Watch through the credits and save your game.  You'll then be able to replay 
    Walter's missions at a higher level and stomp some fools!  Of course, the only
    missions that were tough were the ones with endlessly respawning enemies. 
    (Missions 2 and 5).  All in all, Walter's campaign is not nearly as fun as the
    others, but hey.  Walter's just not a fun dude.
    
    You will also have unlocked Cirith's campaign (if you hadn't already).  I would
    recommend playing Leinhart next after Walter's campaign.  Leinhart's missions
    are actually quite fun and not too frustrating (with the possible exception of 
    his first mission).

    5.1  Infantry |                 
    --------------'   
    Infantry are the basic unit of the Human Alliance.  All other units start out
    as Infantry, but they shouldn't STAY Infantry.  The ONLY reason to use basic 
    Infantry in combat is because the game forces you to (like in your first 
    mission). Infantry are resistant to arrow attack if you place them in closed 
    formation, though you shouldn't ever be using Infantry on a board where there 
    are Archers.

    --------------------'   
    Heavy Infantry are more heavily armed and armored fighting men.  They are not
    quite as strong as Knights, but have the advantage of slightly greater speed and
    less vulnerability to lightning.  They can also can equip shields, where Knights
    cannot.  Heavy Infantry in closed formation are resistant to arrow attacks, 
    though they will move very slowly.  All in all, the defensive and mobility 
    advantages of Heavy Infantry don't outweigh the decreased offensive ability.  
    Since the Hero's troop will mow through enemies with magic skills, the best 
    defense for the Hero's troop is a strong offense.

    ---------------'   
    Spearmen are essentially Infantry that are specialized to kill Cavalry.  They 
    have great resistance to Frontal damage (from charging Cavalry) and their
    spears are deadly to oncoming Cavalry.  Spearmen in melee are identical to 
    regular Infantry, and are not able to deal Frontal damage to charging Cavalry
    (though they are still resistant to the damage).  Spearmen should only be used 
    in battles where you expect to see enemy Cavalry.  There are two such 
    missions in Walter's campaign (the Brimstone missions), though you don't NEED
    Spearmen even in these missions.  The grand total number of Cavalry units you'll
    see in Walter's campaign?  Three.  Leave the Spearmen at home and take someone
    more useful.

    Knights are the strongest human infantry unit, and Walter should upgrade his 
    troop to Knights after the first mission.  The achilles heel of Knights is their
    weakness to Lightning.  You'll probably get hit with Lightning a few times, most
    notably in the first Brimstone mission.  Knights share the ability of Heavy and 
    regular Infantry to resist arrow attacks when using a closed formation.

    5.5  Cavalry |                 
    -------------'   
    Cavalry are mounted horsemen with lances.  They are able to fight effectively 
    in melee, but are most effective when charging through units that are already 
    engaged in melee.  This allows them to inflict Frontal damage instead of Melee
    damage in addition to racking up large amounts of SP.  Because of their speed,
    Cavalry are effective at quickly charging and engaging ranged and magic using
    support units, disrupting these units abilities to use magic and ranged spells.
    Waypoints should be used when charging cavalry through battle.  Set a waypoint
    on the enemy, one past the enemy, one on the enemy, one past the enemy, one on
    the enemy, etc... for as many passes as you wish to execute.  You can also 
    route cavalry from enemy troop to enemy troop to make "rounds" of a 
    battlefield, racking up SP while harrying the enemy.

    that they are tougher (more HP), more resistant to ranged attacks, and more

    every one of Walter's missions.  Get their Riding skill to at least 10, and 
    their Frontal to at least 15.

    -----------------'   
    Storm Riders are trained giant eagles that have been trained and equipped for
    combat.  They are one of two aerial support units available to the Human 
    Alliance.  Storm Riders have the advantage of being fast (the fastest unit in 
    the game), and able to attack air and ground units.  They have the disadvantage
    of being very fragile.  They cannot stand against any other unit able to hit 
    them, and will very quickly be eliminated by any type of magic.  They also 
    cannot attack ground units that are in a forest.  This combination of strengths
    and weaknesses makes Storm Riders great scouts and raiders, but very poor front
    line combatants.  Very often, you will find yourself running critically injured
    Storm Riders out of range of the Archers that they got too close to for a few 
    seconds.  In Walter's campaign, you won't see a single mission that doesn't have
    numerous enemy Archers, making Storm Riders the next best thing to useless.

    Archers are bowmen that can also fight in melee.  They are able to use Fire
    Arrows to set forests on fire, and Direct Shot to fire a focused volley at 
    short range for great damage.  Archers are able to attack both air and ground 
    targets, and are especially strong against air units.  Archers get an advantage
    when firing at an enemy from higher ground, or with the sun at their back.  The
    main advantage of Archers is that you can give their officer the Holy skill so 
    they can cast Curatio.  Archers/Longbows are the only ranged units that have 
    two skill slots available for an additional magic skill.  You could give them 
    any magic skill, but being able to cast Curatio with ranged units that 
    generally stay out of melee is a huge advantage.

    Mortars are small field artillery, but they do HUGE damage.  Mortars are quite 
    possibly the best unit available to the Human Alliance.  They can't stand alone,
    but used properly, they are overwhelmingly powerful.  Their main advantage is 
    that they have very long range, and inflict splash damage.  Catapults and 
    Ballistae also have long range, but fire and move slower, and don't inflict 
    splash damage.  Mortar fire also knocks down units that are hit, disrupting 
    opposing missilers and slowing the pace of damage dealing in melee.  The main
    disadvantage of Mortars is that they can't hit aerial units.  In order to make
    your Mortars more effective, upgrade the Gunpowder skill to at least 15.

    5.11  Sapper |                 
    -------------'   
    Sappers are combat engineers that set and remove traps on the battlefield.
    Sappers can be very effective when used properly, but because of their poor 
    melee skill, most of the time you will want to bring a more powerful combat 
    unit whose damage dealing doesn't rely on the enemy moving toward YOUR forces.
    After all, Mortars, Ballistae, and Catapults can inflict similar damage, and do
    so at no SP cost against a stationary enemy from a greater range than the 
    enemy's line of sight.  If traps were stronger, I would use Sappers more, but
    really they're too much trouble to manage in the heat of battle for the low
    amount of damage they do.

    The Earth Golem is a poor choice for Walter's campaign because it is vulnerable
    to the Explosions, Frontal, and Lightning, all of which you'll see during the
    course of Walter's campaign.

    5.17  Ice Maiden |                 
    -----------------'   
    Ice Maidens are feminine shaped ice spirits that are very difficult to kill 
    conventional attacks.  They have the ability to cast a potent Blizzard.  Ice 
    Maidens are a good choice for Walter's campaign since their vulnerability
    to Fire isn't likely to be exposed by any of the enemies faced during his
    missions.  Their resistance to ranged attacks makes them good Archer killers.

    --------------------'   
    The Thunder Rhino is a large thunder spirit animal with a strong Thunderstorm
    attack.  The Thunder Rhino is vulnerable to Explosion and Frontal attacks, 
    both of which you'll see in Walter's more difficult missions.  Unfortunately,
    you'll find them dying just when you need them most.  If you must have an 
    Elemental, stick with the Ice Maiden or Flame Wraith.

    5.19  Flame Wraith |                 
    -------------------'   
    Flame Wraiths are a cadre of sword weilding Fire spirits with a powerful meteor
    spell.  They have better resistances than the other elementals, but aren't as 
    resistant to melee attacks, and are very susceptible to Ice magic.  They are 
    another good choice for Walter's campaign since you won't see much (if any)
    Ice magic.
