My civs are all currently Lvl 24/25. I can beat this quest fairly easily on my Celts and Greeks, but then on my Egyptians I can't even come close, and then on my Persians I've gotten close a couple of times but can't squeeze out a win. So far I've tried this quest about a dozen times, and I can only win it on my Celts and Greeks. Question 1: How are Vemundr's abilities calculated? Is he an exaggerated version of the "Spearman" for he civ you're playing, is his ability to do damage related in any way to the civ you're playing at the time, or is he supposed to be the same for every civ? Question 2: If his abilities are not related to the civ you're playing, why is this quest so much more difficult on come civs than others? Question 3: Do the tactics of the AI change based on which civ you're playing?
