t.t never saw the greek cities grow that much in a campaign
How do I get the gold armor pictured above? This was the reason I thought some people were 'artificially' increasing the bonuses to their units, because as far as I am aware, the highest you can get is silver weapons and armor.
King Agamemnon of Mycenae, autoresolving will usually increase experience faster. Fighting the battles leads to very few units rising in experience (to gold at least.)

My AAR for VGRII-AQUILAE
That army is the result of loads of battles, including a lot of auto resolved battles which speed up the gaining experience process.
Golden armor can be obtained in Hellenistic and Roman cultures. With the greek ones you build a pantheon to hephaestus and with the romans, as already said, you build a pantheon to Vulcan, although i don't think that i didn't need to build pantheon level to get it in 2.5.
Ok here is my Spartan Empire. I control all of Greece parts of Thrace/Dacia and Sicily. I am at war with the Romans and the Dacians. I have just taken the Dacian capital which I hope cuts their strength down to a level to which my barbarian armies can handle. This is because all Spartans are going to be needed in the war against Rome.
p.s. I am going to be writing an AAR on this campaign and the spartan people's continuing struggle.

And here you have a successful attempt at the Capua campaign in Hard/Hard.
Spoiler Alert, click show to read:
With the fall of Caralis, the last roman refuge, the roman republic is no more! The Capua campaign is a pretty easy one. The hardest part is the very beginning of it, dealing with all those roman armies and all.
After that it's just blitzing through the peninsula.
Also you need to edit these messages and all! I refuse to be identified as a true roman! Capua is more of a subjugated city state ruled by the roman iron fist than a welcoming ally!
In another note, no wonder there's so many roman players in this forum. It's damn easy to beat stuff even with a republican army. I've taken all of these cities with just the army you see and 90% of the battles were auto resolves, which i can afford to do 2 or 3 in a row!
