Good guide! I don't remember if there was already a Lanka guide around or not, but I do remember some conversation points from other posts that you could add.

1. Kala-Mukha warriors have helmets while Palankasha's do not. In some cases this makes them the better choice to recruit.

2. Yoginis are statistically your best research per gold unit, but they are not sacred so mass producing them as researchers is more expensive long term.

The guide is otherwise pretty comprehensive. The only thing I can think of that isn't in there is a sample pretender design for new players to try out Lanka for the first time. Thanks for the hard work.

-Flyers carrying blood slaves are the best way to bring blood slaves into battles. Just make sure your flyers appear next to your blood mages.
Do you mean Blood slaves are shared between all your mages on the battlefield ?

Not quite, blood slaves are shared, but only with nearby mages. Not sure what the range is, but I'd guess somewhere between 1-3 squares away. It's pretty short.

Huh. Good info, I'm not sure that I've ever noticed that this was the case.

Yes, putting blood slaves next to blood mages, even if they come from a non-mage character, means that the blood mage will use them.

I'll add the info about the helmets and the Yogini. I don't think either are truly important details, but for completeness's sake they should be tossed in.

Glad everyone liked the guide. I spend a good chunk of two days of vacation, and I was worried no one was going to read it.

As for the builds, I find that several builds work well with Lanka and their individual effectiveness depends heavily on play style and game parameters, so even a sample build would be misleading.

Very interesting read.
Do you intend to fix the incomplete sentences? (like "For people concerned that Berserking ")
And if you do, please highlight the "fix" in some way, so I'll just reread the missing part

Yeah, honestly your guide is pretty comprehensive. The only reason I made any suggestions is because without them there's really not much reason to post.

Hey...nice guide...uh....cya!

Thanks for writing this guide, K. I had been looking for one on Lanka, and this one is very helpful indeed!
