Country's Strategy

Leonia, like Caerleon, is a magic-based country, though they rely less on offensive magic and more on support and recovery magic. While their healing ability and the mountains that surround their territory make them a powerful defensive country, it can be difficult - but by no means impossible - to conquer the continent with them.

When using Leonia, you should initially focus on attacking Iscalio, whose knights will be easy prey for your white elemental knights and give them a chance to gain some levels. Attack Norgard only when their castles are lightly guarded, because their powerful knights can give Leonia a hard time. You may also want to convert some of your healers to Mages and Enchantresses in order to gain an offensive edge. With successful training, Leonia may even surpass Caerleon's magic ability and will almost never have to worry about running out of MP in battle. Conversely, you should try to eliminate Leonia swiftly when fighting them - if you don't, knights like Lyonesse and Kiloph will become very powerful, and Leonia's abundance of healing magic will make for some long and difficult battles.

Alternatively, Hadrian can be defended rather easily with only a couple tough creatures and a bit of ranged support. This allows Leonia to focus the majority of its power up north against Norgard, which should face difficulties defending against Leonia due to the large number of territories Norgard must defend.
