Triangular Strategy: Chapter 8, Part 2
This is the chapter of Triangle Strategy you get if you decide not to accept Silvio Telliore’s proposal in the previous part. By rejecting him, you will soon discover Silvio’s true colors and will be forced to defend Castle Wolffort against a band of Glenbrook soldiers, including a very tough and renowned adversary.
As always with this game, there are decisions to be made, a battle to be fought, and items to be collected. To make sure you don’t miss a thing, we’ve got the perfect chapter guide!

Gustadolph sends Avlora to confront Landroi, the lord of one of the High Houses of Glenbrook.

Main Story: Castle Wolffort
Telliore’s intentions are revealed and his army knocks on the gates of Castle Wolffort. Among his soldiers is Rufus “Herosbane” – a name to flee very quickly to be sure.
Exploration Event: Wolffort Streets
With tensions rising and an army on the way, we have a new map to explore. Here we are at the gates of Wolffort, filled with barricades ready for the army’s invasion. As usual, there are things to pick up and conversations to have.
Elements, notes and information
|Invigorating Spice x3||To the right of the gate.|
|Ranged Ice Stone||Examine the tree to the left of Erador.|
|Iron x3||Examine the tree down the slope from Roland.|
|500 pieces||Examine the tree to the right of Hughette.|
|1,100 pieces||To the left of the gate.|
|A letter from Kin||On the ground between Erador and Hughette.|
|Conversation on Conviction: Benedict|
|Their fear is understandable. Even so, I imagine they will back down if they find themselves fighting a losing battle.||Utility|
|Telliore’s domain is closer to Aesfrost than ours. It goes without saying that their fear would also be greater.||Freedom|
|House Telliore’s hands are still clean, unlike ours. It makes me wonder if Lord Silvio is the greatest ruler between us…||Morality|
|Sentencing Conversation: Wolffort Soldier|
|We may need all the help we can get, but asking Hyzante for help could result in a war like the one thirty years ago…||Morality|
|The alliance has been broken and House Telliore has turned against us. It almost seems foolish to rely on the goodwill of others now…||Freedom|
|We share a common enemy with Hyzante. To that end, I presume the Holy State is waiting to see if we would make a formidable ally.||Utility|
Once you are done with your exploration, all you have to do is wait for Telliore to act. Get ready for a fight!
Side Story: Falkes Streets
Landroi hears of both Telliore’s betrayal and the advancing army led by Avlora. It’s not a very good day for Lord Landroi.
Battle Event: Streets of Wolffort
Silvio declares that our noble convictions will not change reality, but he is completely wrong. It’s time to push back his forces and reduce his betrayal to its proper measure. Of course, Silvio himself is too cowardly to fight, but Rufus is a worthy opponent.

As you can imagine, having the height advantage means your archers will have a fantastic time here. This is a great opportunity for some Kudos farmers if you have the patience!
|Wolffort Streets Battle Strategy|
As you start this battle with a fantastic height advantageit doesn’t really mean much to your melee lined up units.
To hasten their journeys up the winding stone staircase, Deploy Jens if you have it. Its ability to build ladders wherever you want will come in very handy. Equip it with a Vanguard Scarf to get a head start on this strategy.
Be aware that if you try to build a second ladder, the first ladder will disappear. Don’t let your units get stuck!
If you have recruited Narve, his Icy Breath spell can be put to good use. It will place patches of ice that slow your enemies’ progress and deal a ton of damage to various enemies that are visibly weak to the ice element.
Likewise, beware of the Battlemages of Glenbrook. They will use Scorch to destroy the wooden barricades instantly and created dangerous patches of fire. If you can use wind attacks to your advantage, that could be their advantage.
Your primary targets in the early rounds of this fight will likely be Battlemages, Healer, and Bowmen. It’s much easier to control the movements of physical attackers, so deal with ranged attackers as soon as possible.
The Healer is especially important to kill. You don’t want him healing Rufus when you’ve nearly finished off the brute.
Rufus is a pretty tough client to deal with and provides much of the difficulty in this battle. He has a very high physical damage output and can even use Bolster to give himself extra TP while increasing his physical attributes.. His Armor Break attack is his meanest tool, as it easily deals over 70 damage to even your bulkiest units. Approach it with care and caution, and heal your units whenever necessary.
He has a pretty glaring weakness to magic damage.so Frederica, Narve, and any other magic damage dealers you might have will come in handy in defeating him.
A great way to destroy Rufus is to immobilize him with Hughette’s Shadowstitching Arrow attack. It won’t always stick, but if it does, you’ve secured yourself plenty of leeway to take on other units without fearing its power.
Once you take him down, the battle is over.
With the battle over, Silvio flees with Rufus in pursuit. This ends the second part of chapter eight, Parting Ways. But that’s not the end of the chapter.
Chapter 8, Part 3 – Shadow and Light
With the spoils of the last battle, now would be a good time to promote one of your favorite units with the Medal of Bravery. Additionally, you can upgrade one of your archers’ weapons with spider silk. We recommend Hughette, as she is a main character and has incredible versatility through flight.
