I'm glad to see they are getting creative with the gargoyle. :/

I think it's bloody because too many people hit it out of disgust.

And what did you want - a head as an upgrade?

It'd be a start. Maybe it'd become smart enough to realize its defense value is fairly lack-luster.

"Still no head and big hands."

It seems they cant go far from the main model. If they should redone all three completely or add a new creature for hire instead of djinn, genie like the good old ones in H3 and H4.

Name Storm lord would better suit Warlord from fortress. If it must be storm then find something that is not "lord". We already have vampire lord, Warlord, Pit lord. It wouldn't surprise me if they just have added "arch" to all creatures:/

Maybe the whole point of TotE is to discourage modders as no mod can fix everything that Nival has done so far. But why??

I'm one of the few who prefer the original style of Heroes V Djinns (as in general) and gargoyles (again as in general), but Marble Gargoyle could use a bit of recoloring.

The abilities can now be found on the official english site too:

Should ease the understanding of the abilities a bit :)

There's call storm instead of call lightning. About the price, tier 7 costs in tote will be lowered.

I am not pleased with the Vizier - an Efreet would've been much better.

I like the new mage - very like a desert traveller. The Kachassadimuphasa is kinda cool....hum...just it. Titan got the flu (you might even see the viruses around him). The djinn, aw, dunno, it's like out of paint to finish properly colouring him. Gargoyles came from the sun. The other two are regular, nothing to add.
