Very exciting, but pity the designers didn't guarantee you could access the main quest....
I've spend about a dozen of hours to clearn almost all map, but still I couldn't find this black-gate they said... oboviously, this place occupied by the other plays, and I don't like to kill they all just to search such a place. So, in the last, without the mainquest support, I feel like I just kill- kill-kill for nothing, what a miserable feeling....

heheheh.. was under yer nose all the time. Is on EVERY map, is one way of winning the game.

Multi stage, two gates, each sends you 'round current map to sub-quests, then head back. Read quests carefully, they tell you exactly.

4 ways to win any FE game.

Yes, I noticed it, but I have to say there is almost no story in this game...

Its a sandbox game. Story mode (scenario) can be created by players(modders) example: http://forums.elementalgame.com/440136

There is a back story, play through the scenario if you are interested in it.
BTW, the Black gate is on EVERY map. The gate itself cannot be occupied by other player. You might have to walk through their territory to get there however, just sign a non-aggession pact with them and you can get in, or if you don't like them, fight your way into it.

Look for a wildland with a nothing but a big mountain in it surrounded by statues.

What you talkin about?

Every single character-to-critter-to-(big uglies) has thier own story and background.

Quit watching you fingers type and go read'em. LOL

Sometimes some transformation of peak to plains using Lower Earth is required to access it.

...this is just silly. It is NEVER REQUIRED to reach it. There is a gate!

I think he means if you don't want to sign a pact or violate territory.

That said, reaching the gate by that means alone when opponents have zones of control around it doesn't really help as the side quests for the Black Gate will be in their territory.

bah.. rough'em up a bit or use other tactics.

To get access; fresh trades sometimes helps, the easiest is if THEY are on your property they won't kick YOU off THEIRS. ..so you trap/surround one on yer property and yer good to go.

..on a side note, troops with he Sneek ability don't get booted, after all they are sneekin!

An Outpost or two wedged in the right places can give access or close enough for a dash.

Lotsa ways to be creative.

Great fun..

That said, if you can take on the black gate without taking catashrophic losses, you can conquer the nation that is preventing you access. That dragon warlord is pretty powerful. Unless you have mana blast with a reserve into 5 digits, you either need dragons or lots of ice mages. Even with 100% fire resistance from Cloak of Nature, you're still going to get whacked by the physical damage it can lay down.

Bah. Like the elementals you just need heroes to take him. Get rings and cloaks and his fire won't do much damage.

What I was reffering to above was getting access in general, to anything, and tricks there in.

Dunno what you guys are on about.. I got the init' yanked on all my troops. They had two moves before the Champ got to move ..and well, he never did. He just died.

Great fun..

Well, you need a hero to get in, but you don't need a hero to take him. 3 companies of ice mages with meatshields should be able to take him. The vulnerable to cold makes a huge difference.
