    I finally beat lord of shadows without cheating in any way, all thanks to Thanok's bonus, it took me 5 hours and 50 minutes...I feel like I deserve some props here

    It took me 4 hours and 10 minutes, I was also using Thanok's bonus - due to Claire's one being unfavorable for me in this mission.

    At least you managed it, I on the hand use the Shadows to cheese the trebuchets then their bases.

    It's a difficult mission, wonder how long it takes Kasrkin to complete it

    My best so far in lord of shadows. Mostly used shadows to destroy orange and teal, although orange is very tough to deal with.
    Used thanok's bonus.

    I used Claire´s one. I even managed to beat it on normal without cheats before leadership bonus implementation.
    I took my time, so about 6 hours there. If you take it slow you can manage it. It is nor hard, just takes more than 1 try to blow up enemy bases.

    I beat it before but I used various cheats like using "whosyourdaddy" at times, and also using the perfect vision cheat to unmask the whole map to see when your enemy is about to attack as well the the position of structures and units within the base, with cheats it obviously took less time, however this was the first time I've done with without any cheat whatsoever, also I had trouble defending against enemy attacks at times, so that's why it took almost 6 hours

    I beat it on Hard. My tactic was to use the shadows first clear blue then the trebuchets.

    Yea, same here I got rid of blue first, then proceeded to get rid of the trebuchets while assisting my ally in dealing with orange, this whole thing is a process however; it takes awhile, and then you gonna destroy the teal undead base which can be a pain because it has 2 heroes; the fleshtearer and a crypt lord also takes a bit of time

    Idk how you manage to survive late game, like for about 4hour in the game. I had that situation too, but my resources start to deplete and it is hard to fought back.
    So what i did is rush the enemy base and build a lot of scout towers around the map to halt the offensive forces of the teal or orange and let the shadows do the work for me.
    My strategy for this map is shadows + arcane tower. op combo

    I was having trouble getting rid of orange and teal

    especially teal since they have 2 heroes; the fleshtearer and a crpt lord

    I hate Orange the most, that Ranger hero is obnoxious.

    Use Thanok´s attacks as distractions, kill shades in their base (they wont make new ones), then towers and you have a happy hour.
