Let me start of with a confession. The first 6 hours or so I spent playing GOT I was slightly underwhelmed.
Part of this was tied to the fact that I was playing sporadically since I could only play when my sons were not around and it was in the early phase of the game.
Fortunately we bought a new TV and now I can play in my office whenever I like. Once I had free reign of the land and had upgraded my skills a bit, I was hooked and I have practically forgotten about playing Spider-Man.
I thought this would be a good place to share wisdom with those new to the game. For example I just realized what purpose the Fox Dens serve and have been fanatical about tracking them down.
I will say this, my best advice is to complete as many Mongolian strongholds as possible in order to increase your stance options. Also if you can study a general before killing him you can fill two slots instead of just one.
