For scouting, theft, and assassination it is best that you do any of this without your army (for obvious reasons). You should put your army on hold in a place that has good cover but is close to the castle at the same time (in a cave system or behind a mountain is ideal). Assassination is not usually of the player holding the castle but of the player's troops. If you can lure a few troops away from the main group then kill them that will mean you have a few less to deal with. It is best that you do this when the player has left the castle to mine or when he is asleep. With thieving it is best to strike at night or when he is away as well. Leading a diversion in any form such as an attack or a big explosion will work better because he will take his troops that are in the castle with him. The units in the castle would attack you on sight and interrupt your activities of pilfering.

Another tip is to find and make cover. This way you can hide your troops so they can't be attacked by enemy archers, axe-throwers, or crossbowmen. Making another fort is preferable, but try not to make it too big. I advise to send waves of troops in, finding and exploiting any weakness. This is also called probing (see section above). Another good way is to lure the opponents troops out so you can pick them off. Set guards in and around your camp so they can't launch a counter-attack. Lastly, it is highly recommended to have the 'Summon' [[Horn of Command|command horn]] and the 'Halt/Ready' command horn in your hotbar, so you can command your troops more efficiently.
