King’s Bounty 2: How to Pass Tyrant’s Challenge
The Tyrant trial is a classic gambit, won in 4 moves.
First move: Dragon is waiting. To the right above in the thick of the enemies, so that each of the units can reach it to attack, put the gargoyle on the defensive immediately. Opponents are all over it and kill it. Next 2 casts of fire downpour into the formed a neat group of enemies. Then a dragon flies in place of the gargoyle and deals a massive poison AOE. All die, leaving 3 units of one warrior each.
Second turn: Fly in spite of the control zone out of range of the enemy and heal.
After two turns the remaining units will die from burning and poisoning. In general, there’s a logic to any combat trials – they’re analogous to ‘chess problems’, nothing more, they don’t require luck or procs. It’s just a calculation, you just have to find the logic of the battle and follow it.
