We recommend choosing a difficulty based on your experience with strategy RPGs such as Symphony of War: The Nephilim Saga. Even those who have never played should be fine on Captain difficulty, as it allows you to experience the story but still be moderately challenged. Alternatively, Cadet is a great way to learn the genre if you have never played one before.

Those who consider themselves pros in the genre and looking for a challenge should try Warlord. This difficulty will put your skills to the test and offer the hardest challenge in Symphony of War: The Nephilim Saga. That being said, don't be afraid to turn the difficulty if you are struggling.
