Can you beat Avlora’s army without burning the town in Triangle Strategy?

It's difficult but not impossible.

Since you chose to be the loyal friend until the end, the game will now force you into one of the most difficult battles in the game—General Avlora’s three-wave army. Before the battle, Benedict informs you that the town that surrounds Castle Wolffort has a secret: oils can be released into its canals, allowing you to burn sections of the town.

This will make the battle against Avlora easier, but is it possible to not to light anything on fire? It is possible, but it's difficult and you can only do it with the right people. In fact, you absolutely must not set anything on fire if you want to unlock the game's true ending.

How to beat Avlora's army

The best way to defeat Avlora is to play the waiting game and barrage her (and the rest of the Aesfrosti army) with arrows and spells from the top level. Never leave it for your protection and the height advantage. If you have Piccoletta the Acrobat, her Decoy skill can also be used to lure enemies on the second level together, allowing mages to deal damage to a group of enemy units.

If you've already recruited Jens the Artisan by this point, you can also build ladders to increase mobility for the team. But most importantly: Jens' Spring Trap skill can be used to set traps along the staircases. If an enemy unit steps on them, they get flung back. This buys you time and prevents enemies from climbing the steps all at once.

If Benedict already knows Now...! at this point (which moves a unit's turn immediately after his), he can be used to bump Jens up to continuously set traps. This setup is best used with Julio the Advisor's Moment of Truth skill, which can give an ally unit one TP.

Hughette can also learn Shadowstitching Arrow by this point, which can immobilize units for two turns if you're lucky. Use them on melee units to stall their advancement.

  1. I found that the hunter’s steel trap does a sizeable chunk of damage, somewhere to the tune of 70 hp each time Avlora triggers it. I found this out on my third attempt and haven’t retried to see if he can be the lynchpin I need but it might help someone do enough damage to her.

    1. Hey Benedict, this is a pretty good strategy! I wasn’t able to play around with Jens since I got him after this fight but I’ll be definitely be adding this to the guide as well 🙂 Thanks!

  2. It’s both possible and simple to beat Avlora without burning the town. If you have recruited the junior blacksmith. Simply build a ladder on the house behind you, have all of your ranged units climb up and pick the enemy off 1 by 1. If you have the juggling girl to drop decoys on the ground to group opponents it’ll go even quicker.

    1. Hey Joe, this is a very good strategy! I got Jens way after this stage so I wasn’t able to try that. I’ve actually amended the article and will add this strategy to it 🙂

  3. Ok so it is possible to beat her. I turtles up on high ground and rained arrows and spells from above on everyone and as soon as she got up she took down two people before the rest beat her into submission. Seeing as I haven’t done it the other way I don’t know if you get any special rewards besides a bit of dialogue about saving the town.

    1. Wow, that’s amazing! I think they were moving too quickly for me to have done this in my first run, but I’ll try this in my next playthrough! I’m amending the article to reflect this – and add your suggestion – thank you!
