How to play...

From The Battle for Wesnoth Wiki

Learn how to play with and against every faction below. You will find general faction strategies as well as unit-by-unit analysis of how to play against each of the 7 "Default Era" factions (including "mirror" matches).


All strategies make the assumptions of a 1v1 game on a balanced map [any two player map aside from Cynsaun Battlefield] with default map settings on the latest version of Wesnoth (currently 1.15.x development branch). All guides was re-written in March 2021.




There is also a guide about Specialists like horseman, mages or skirmishers.


Legacy threads for each faction (these are many years out of date):

Drakes - Knalgans - Loyalists - Northerners - Rebels - Undead
