Armoured princess is actually really easy since you can juke a lot of the mobs to get maps which then in turn let's you go to higher level areas to juke more mobs to get high level spells/money/gear/armies. You can even do a few turn in only quests that will give you multiple levels since they reward a flat amount of exp.
I've only gotten to about the third island in Warriors of the North. It just got a little stale for me. The new barbarian types are kinda meh.
The online version is a social facebook only "game". It's terrible.
