    There is choice after you liberate one of elf villages.
    Do you go by land or swim straight to it?

    I’d take the land route wherever possible.

    Isabella has lots of ships, it’s a hassle to kill them all.

    I meant on beginning of game that is starting mission and instantly rushing towards elf village, that will trigger side choice “event” (choosing loyalists or torchbearers).
    It took me 5 turns to get to it trough sea and like 10 – 30 turns trough land, because I was exploring stuff.

    Land. You’ll be able to grow your army there with conversion and a quest.

    Should be faster than that tho….10 turns should be more than you need to explore everything and pick everything up.

    I used heroes army only. They all have flying mounts.
    With scouting skill of Sundren now they have 40 movement points.
    This team is good at air raids and blitzkrieg 😉
    In mean time I got nice Kraken and bone dragon (t4 unit) summon spell.
    I even reached to orc settlement.

    Now I’m at choice point on 9th turn.

    In the early stages, I think I stuck to land. However, the AI generally likes to put a lot of stacks defending the cities closest to you at the expense of defenses elsewhere, so later on in the scenario, sending a flying stack or two into her rear areas is a good way of knocking her down a peg or two.
