 sorry, but i would say that this is unit size, not unit strength.

 Of course a lot of weak NPCs can be more dangerous than few strong ones. But they provide more xp as well.

 I would recommend to do your "difficulty guide" considering what troops do you normaly use.

I just had a conversation with someone about this guide and a very good point came up I should've pointed out originally. The MDQ is an average for all races and it does vary from race to race. Different races, different unit stats obviously. The formula is based on defensive stats only for the moment but if as they will no doubt start attacking in the future then I will revise the numbers accordingly as I need to.
Doesn't look good... doesn't look bad either!

Manannan,

Thanks so much for your guide! I've found it a tremendous help in knowing which NPCs I can attack and which I should avoid.

If I may submit my own small contribution: I've also found this reordering of the list according to difficulty a great help. And I present it here in the hope that it might benefit others as well:

In case that doesn't show up properly, here it is in graphical form:

(The uploader seems to have arbitrarily reduced the resolution.)

Thank you again! It's magnanimous of you to put your accumulated expertise at the service of others in the community.

Best regards,

R.

P.S. I hope you won't mind a question: I'm still rather vague on how you derived these numbers (which informs their meaning). Would you be willing to describe your process? R
