When I was playing HoMM3, there was a mission to capture the Erathian capital. Unfortunately, it was guarded by this general with uber stats, with lots of big anti-magic garrisons and so forth guarding it. My only bet was to get into the city while he was out, b/c occasionally he'd sally forth about a day's distance for no reason, then come hustling back the next day. Even if that isn't the objective of the game, it's crippling to an enemy to hold their key city for a couple days. Try maneuvering behind this elf guy, taking his city, buying up all the leftover troops, then bolting. Just use a minor hero with a secondary army. See how that works out for ya.

It's really hard because he has about 2 other heroes patrolling the area. But I'm talking about Heroic.

Heroic? I hope you'll forgive me, but I'm not sure what that is. You see, I've ONLY played 3. And a little of 4, but was slightly frustrated by it. So I'm really not keen on the jargon that gets thrown around here. But with leiutenants running around, yeah, that can be a pain.

Heroic = highest difficulty http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif.
Try to take the upper castle as soon as possible. This can be done by avoiding the pheonixes and taking a short cut through the mages. I suggest you also take demons as bonus. Thing is it depends what skills you took so far and logistics should be the main one.

There's another thread on exactly the same mission further down the page. Check them out to see if they have more helpful ideas than I do.
