The Strategy and Tactics submod for Edain 4.4.1 focuses on competitive balance, with a few core principles.
Give all factions a fighting chance at all stages of gameplay.
Expand hero usefulness to not be limited to roles.
Fix all bugs.
Give everything at least some small competitive use, even if only niche.
We are also adding a large amount to all gameplay aspects. Units, buildings, abilities and spellbook powers have been widely changed, and many new ones have been added to create the most entertaining and balanced experience possible.

You can also discuss the mod with us and other fans on this thread or by joining this Discord group, which serves as a hub for Elite KryPtiks YouTube subscribers and Patrons, as well as everything to do with SaT and Edain in general.

Hello everyone, today we will be looking at a new dwarven hero for the Iron Hills. Please note that some things might chance once we reach beta.
In the current version of Edain the Iron hills is the only faction that does not have a scout hero and we felt that their early game really suffers from that, so we have created our own unique hero for the faction. Gamil is an all new scout hero for the Iron Hills Dwarves.
Unlike other Edain heroes, Gamil does not gain new abilities by simply levelling up. Instead he can purchase new abilities for a reasonable price. However, when Gamil reaches level 10 by simply gaining experience in battle all abilities will be automatically unlocked. Thus the player has the choice to invest in a scout hero with full capabilities, or instead invest in more units to support their hero and let him get the abilities unlocked for free.
Also please note that the required upgrades mentioned don’t actually give Gamil said upgrade. For example, if it says “Requires Forged Blades upgrade” that doesn’t that once Gamil has purchased this upgrade he will gain also gain the Forged Blades bonus, it will just unlock the ability mentioned.
He gains 1% discount towards his upgrades every time he defeats an enemy. After defeating 50 enemy units, this discount increases to 2%. So after defeating 75 enemies, the upgrade will be free. When all upgrades have been purchased, he loots the bodies of his enemies, contributing resources to the Iron Hills directly.
Allowing the upgrades to be discounted gives the player the option to still actively use Gamil to fight his enemies, instead of simply farming for experience to get him to his maximum potential for free.
The temporary invulnerability allows Gamil to quickly leave the battlefield if he is about to be killed, whilst the personal buff and single target ability allow for more crowd control and strength in battle.
Gamil’s Squadron is one battalion consisting of 10 basic Iron Hills guardians accompanied by 5 basic Iron Hills pike men. It’s a temporary summon that offers for some quick reinforcements to either reinforce your army in battle or allows for a distraction whilst retreating.
Once Gamil reaches level 10, his Squadron gets improved to the elite units of the Iron hills. 10 Slaughterers accompanied by 5 units of Dain’s Veterans (Iron Hills’ new elite pikemen).
As you can see Gamil is a very strong warrior compared to other scout heroes of Edain. Based around the concept of a new recruit eager to prove himself, Gamil truly becomes a force to be reckoned with once he has shown his qualities. We think his addition to the Iron hills improves their overall early gameplay and we hope to hear some feedback on our new hero.
With kind regards,
The SaT team
