Build Order Reference

32+2 Drush - FC

A drush can be used to buy time to perform a fast Castle, though you usually want to have a good map. Your ecomomy is quite stretched when you reach Castle, so you usually have to delay either bow saw and bodkin arrow.

The scenario for this build requires walling, and not building enough walls before you click Feudal will reduce your grade. If your map is especially good, its possible you might need to double wall in places to get the highest grade.
