Age of Empires DE Babylon Holy Man

How do you beat this scenario? I watched the solution for the AoE, but that does not work. As soon as I convert a yellow worker, the rest mob and kill my priest. That leaves me with one worker and does not give me enough time to get an economy and military up and running before yellow and then red start attackiing.

That is one of the best scenarios of all campaigns. It’s difficult but not impossible.
It is advisable to go first for Yellow as they are less aggressive, convert their villagers and get rid of them as soon as possible while defending the river with towers and boats. The Red do not build a dock, and we can take advantage of this, capturing the gold mines of the south.


Thanks for the comment, but I already said that as soon as I convert a yellow worker, all the remaining workers rush to attack the priest. I go to the yellow side right away, not the red.

No other suggestions or comments?

@AmberLlama43721 If you search YouTube for some walk-through tutorials it may be helpful.

Not gonna lie, I had a lot of trouble on this level. I ended up converting a villager and then just running away leaving the priest behind. Probably not the best strategy, but you can build a town center and get going with just 1 villager :stuck_out_tongue:

I’ve checked the walk-throughs and tried with just the villager, but without converting more of the yellow villagers, you can’t catch up before red comes storming in. I don’t understand why they made the yellow villagers so aggressive. They follow the priest until they kill him.

I tried this on hardest(28529) and I managed to convert villagers from yellow just fine without aggroing them all.

Are you perhaps too close to them? I was converting from the max range of my priest without being in vision for any other yellow villagers or buildings while doing so. Didn’t pull aggro to my priest even after six converts.

If you still can’t convert in peace, try a different difficulty setting, maybe the the specific difficulty you play at is somehow bugged.

PS. Using buildings as walls is pretty great, so just house/TC/granary/pit/racks walls your base and you can convert from the safety of your home when red comes barreling in.

In my opinion this mission is too unbalanced.
The AI attacks you way too early, the red team already has Chariots when you are still researching the wheel, even on the easiest difficulty.
As you said, it’s almost impossible to convert more than 1 or 2 villagers, because the yellow team attacks your priest with all villagers and you can’t escape.
I have about 10 hours in this mission and I still didn’t figure out how to beat it.
I’m playing AoE for the first time, but I already have experience with other RTS games, and I finished the first 2 campaigns on Normal difficulty without big trouble, but the difficulty spike here is insane!

Well. One tip from me.

Spoiler alert

You also could use some stone to wall off the red player in order to make it a little bit easier for yourself.
