Remember "Mire" from HoMM 4? Now imagine if you could deny your opponent the ability to teleport, or use ships with a spell. Slow down the enemy hero, etc. These elements have been scattered all over the series, but they could be turned into something that is so much more. Amen. Scuttle B...

I went for the Treants. They saved me in 'Days of Fire' and in the Sylvan campaign. Paladins and Champions undoubtedly kick ass too, though I don't use Lay Hands that often... Thanes are pretty good too (I vaguely recall a link somewhere here to a video where they've got the Rune of Battle Rage on t...

Have the computer towns in the scenario 'Days of Fire' been altered? I played earlier and instead of finding fairly strong Dungeon and Sylvan armies found that I was able to beat them quite handily.

Poison Master is Lethos' unique skill. You can't get it unless he is your hero.

I think the point he's trying to make is that Warlock's Luck is no longer available just to the Warlock hero. The Warlock hero is the only one that doesn't have any skills unique to them anymore, seeing as Erratic Mana is available to everyone else too. I recall I similar thread saying how Runemages...

In H5 you've only got the original set of upgrades. You'll find in Hammers of Fate that they came up with a set of alternate upgrades for the Haven units. It's not until Tribes of the East that you'll get to use the (slightly altered) Haven alternates, and the ones for the other towns too. So it dep...

Sorry, I realise now that what I wrote and meant aren't quite the same thing. What I was trying to get across was that I like to have all of the units available to field, not that I always put all of them in the fight. There's nothing worse than realising that what you really need is the stack that ...

Haven Strategy

Definitely aim to get Triple Flaming Ballista. It can kill a fair chunk of units once Vittorio get above Lvl. 10 (1 devil per shot at Lvl.15). Once managed to get the Ring of Machine Affinity and the Dragon Talon Crown so it was truly devastating (the Ring is much rarer than the Crown). I tend to pu...

What if they gave the Witchdoctor some form of Cleansing? Most people go for the Trappers because their current special isn't as useful. Surely this would at least make people think about getting them. Oh, and the Orcs need more Shouts... maybe even one with a 50% chance of dispelling enemy spells (...

'Diplomat' scenario?

Whilst looking through the fan manual to see if there were any other erroneous tooltips (see the Fortress Creature choices thread) I saw that Godric is also the main hero in a scenario called Diplomat but I can't find it. I've looked on H5, HOF and TotE. All three versions are using the newest patch.

I thought Ingvar's special only applies to Defenders (or whatever the ungraded unit is called), so neither Shield nor Mountain Guards benefit from him. Did they change this in TotE?

The Fortress alternates are varied. Some of them are better than the originals. whilst some are not. I still stick to Shieldguards, though having read what's been said before I can see why some people would go for the Mountain Guards. The Shield Wall ability is very useful for defending shooters. If...

I quite often start with Ylthin (or however you spell it). Light Magic is one of the main Sylvan schools, and I find that Unicorns are very useful (especially considering how easy it is to get Luck/Soldier's Luck). It'd be good if she started with Divine Strength instead of one Unicorn though, given...
