Check out these Top Ten Tips from Ron Dulin, author of the official strategy guide to Majesty 2!

1. Build Guardhouses near buildings that generate a good deal of tax revenue, especially buildings situated far from your Royal Palace. This gives your Tax Collectors a place to drop off your gold quickly
2. Occasionally your heroes won’t have enough gold on hand to purchase better equipment. If so, and you want them to have the best armor and weapons available, place an Explore Flag with a high reward in an easily-accessible area.
3. There are no level requirements on equipment or items for heroes. As long as they can afford to buy it, they can use it.
4. On maps with lots of undead enemies, upgrade your Clerics Guild and research Holy Attack as early as possible.
5. Place Defense Flags on low-level heroes to keep them protected until they have gained some levels. This trick is especially useful with Mages, who can't take much damage until they reach Level 5.
6. There is safety in numbers. Try to build a Level 2 Inn and research party formation as quickly as possible. When selecting a party leader, remember that the leader decides which flags a party is interested in. A party led by a Ranger or Elf will eagerly set out for Explore Flags, while a party led by a Warrior will be more prone to seek out Defense Flags or Attack Flags.
7. You can resurrect heroes from the graveyard in your town or by using the Resurrect spell, researched at the Temple to Agrela. Using the spell has a fixed cost, and resurrects your heroes with all of
their items and some of their gold. The cost of resurrecting a hero from the graveyard is based on the hero's level, and they come back to life with all of their equipment but no gold.
8. In single-player and multiplayer missions where the goal is to destroy an enemy building, make sure you have a large number of Dwarves with the Destruction ability.
9. The expert class of weapons, researched at the Level 3 Blacksmith, gives significant attack bonuses to all hero classes, but three classes benefit the most: Blademasters, Mages, and Archers of Helia.
10. Heroes hired at Temples do not have to buy new abilities; they learn their abilities automatically as they gain experience. For this reason, it is always best to promote a hero when you can afford it.
Promoted heroes retain their level, and automatically learn all relevant abilities for their new class, though they lose all of their items.
