Keep in mind the names of the creatures and abilities are likely to change before the release...

I cant help it but I still dont like those Rasta/Ant like treants..
But it true that the AU look much norden like.
A Stupid Question.. DO you think that it will be posible to descide eache unit idividualy or will we have to chose it global for the town (Somu units old and some new or all new or old)

P.S these coments are OMG LOL_Jame

Rainbow dragon, hehe creative and radical but sure sticking with color names like blue, yellow or precious stone names like emerald, well sapphire or cyan dragon would be better. But I dont care actually I think its good enough, rainbow..hmm I think my little sisters will find it fasinating. And white unicorn, and the other names, nicely thought out.

Oh and Im abit sick and tired of non constructive critism..f example why are rainbow dragon gay? The really good thing gotta be we dont have to split up to more different dragons with each color, this gotta bi all in one color dragon. Thought about that huh? Doubt so!

Why were the previous upg, golden/yellowish?

Ok Anger Treant and Rainbow breath...sound weird. But I got used to such names so why bother folks? Treant of Anger or Avenging Treant would be nicer...piant breath for the RB dragon lol ;p
Mhm yeah the new dragon...it should be called sapphire dragon or something after a closer look. The new upgrades looks GREAT! Anyway. And the stats looks balanced, best of all!! So it wont be like we always go for these new ones ;D The druid and the treant looks beautiful, finally a treant that looks mystical and arcane, hiden in deep dark woods, wise and behave like an oracle...I like it..

@ To Caradoc: Dude its a wolf head ;)
Shame he couldnt turn into a werewolf as special ability :/

Indeed and that sux big time. You know some children never learn. But thats how the world is.

But back to buisiness. Some of the upgrades are even better upgrades, but some are balanced alternatives and a few are a combo of these two.

How can something be better and equal (balanced) at a time?

I agree that Rainbow Dragon is a sissy name for a very deadly creature, but maybe they pictured the Sylvans as nature-loving ecology freaks mixed with a bit of New Age filosophy. In such a concept a rainbow would fit perfectly. And it would also proof that nature-lovers are not per definition peaceful and friendly ;).

They were always supposed to be alternate UPGRADES. Since when does a upgrade look different than the original unit ?

Chromatic Dragon sounds better. Or, instead of calling it a dragon, just for some variety, how about Chromatic Wyrm? Or maybe just BFL (the L stands for lizard; you can figure out the rest).

Yeah, but to be fair these look different from the original unit as well. Just not that different from the original upgrade.

I personally love the new look and am more excited than before when I thought they were just going to add abilities and barely touch the model.
