7th level "Return of the Favor" of Aztec Campaign is UN-BEA-TA-BLE.
Seriously, I have played many games considered difficult, but it's the first time I try so hard, so many times and I can't complete a level. After the catapults start coming, it's impossible to do anything. Yeah, I can use the hypnotize-thing but, it costs 200 mana for a catapult which requires many sacrifices and let's the Vikings go deeper in my base. The farest I've made it is until Viking's first tower, but that was without the catapults. Any ideas? I'm seriously starting to think it's a bug or something. I've also set the speed to slow, but I didn't see any difference.

i went back and beat it on normal again to make sure of how that mission runs, yeah its rough when they start but if you get yer gold miners to 10(cap) and spam jags and poison darters, then get yer upgrades to the boulder it will destroy them pretty quickly but the towers will stop it but the tower dies in the process, its worth the 350 mana to use but takes a bit to reset i just sacrafice a bunch of poison darters and skeles for the mana and maybe a jag or 2 see if that helps ya, if not then idk what to tell ya XD, oh and toss a giant or 2 out there they help a bit.

I always have my gold miners to 10, but I don't really feel it's enough. I'll try spamming poison darters to have the advantage of range. I used the boulder the second time (out of the 5 I've played it) but I didn't felt it made a huge difference. I'll do it again trying to follow your tips. I hope I can beat it finally. I guess I'll let you know :D

boulder makes this fight easy, just keep sending the boulder (if you need mana just sacrifice your giants)

only get the darters and the giants or you will run out of gold

it should take about 3-4 boulders since there's 3 towers, once you take them out it should be easy from there since the next boulder will kill the enemy workers

What exactly do you mean by "get". You mean making or sacrificing?
Also, it's not that easy to use the boulder. What I do is wait for my units to reach the least possible life and then sarcifice them but it's not easy to keep up. Still, I'll only be able to use the boudler 2 or 3 times.

get = spawn , recruit ,

you don't get the same mana if you sacrifice your units with low life, a giant with full hp should give about 200mana i can't remember but its more than enough.

Oh, god seriously? That's what I've been doing wrong! I keep waiting for units to be almost dead before sacrificing them. Had I know, I wouldn't stick to this strategy. Anyway, know I guess it is going to be a lot easier.

well i said the jags cause when they get close to the catapults they cant hit the jags and they can kill stuff pretty quick, yeah i dont wait till their almost dead to sacraficem since its 40 gold per darter and 50 per jag and if you killem early you can send a necro and get plenty of skeles to sacrafice aswell, but yeah the boulder is the best route for this mission just gotta try avoiding yer troops the best ya can, and with the 10 miners i rarely have gold issues since you can afford to sit a few secs and let it build.

Here's the strategy I used (for future references):
I started by spawning as many darters I could. I threw a few jags every about 6 darters and a giant every 10. Then, I spawned a second giant who I used as sacrifice to get more mana. After the catapults started coming, I defended as much as I can to let them gather about 3-5, for the boulder to smash them at once. So the first time I used the boulder, I smashed 4 catapults and the first tower. I did the same with the second tower and the next wave of catapults and I won in no-time. And all that thanks to the pice of information that only healthy troops give you the right amount of mana!
I'm currently playing the chinese campaign :D

Wut? Really? I'm on the 6th level and I have beat them without a defeat so far at normal speed. Can't be sure about what's coming, but until now it was pretty easy. I also love the spells and the units more than aztec's.

guess its person to person but i had a rough time with that campaign in the later parts.
