Spin the Skill Wheel

Postby Angelspit » May 8 2006, 2:22

<a href="http://www.celestialheavens.com/520"><img src="http://www.celestialheavens.com/images/news/skillwheel.jpg"></a>If there's an area where Heroes of Might and Magic V is quite different from the previous games of the series, it's the highly dynamic skill system that should allow a lot of customization with your heroes. But with certain abilities having requirements coming from another skill, it's quite easy to get confused and waste your time on unnecessary advancement. A simple table isn't enough to explain how it works. Fortunately, <b>Aurelain</b>, who created the Heroes IV spellbook hosted on Celestial Heavens, is back with yet another pretty utility. The Flash-based <a href="http://www.celestialheavens.com/520"><b>Skill Wheel</b></a> not only provides the icons and the descriptions of each skill and ability, but shows what are its specific requirements.

Please be patient as the page will take a moment to open with a dial-up connection. Flash 6 is required, but chances are that your browser already supports it. All the data is based on information from the beta test and the demo, and is likely to be different in the retail version. The Wheel will be updated shortly after the game becomes available.

This is very cool! I just hope and pray the actual game manual is this thorough.

I really like that Herald of Death ability for Necro. That sounds awesome.

This skill system looks a bit...irrational...all these pre-requisites...is going to take A LOT of time to memorize that stuff...

Wondeful work! It'll be very helpful...

There is a mistake: Tear of Asha vision and Spoils of War icons in Wizards wheel are inversly placed...

I think the earlier posters have used up all the imaginable words of praise :)

One problem, though: the really long descriptions can't be displayed in full, such as Mark of the Damned. A scroll bar may be needed.

Thank you for the appreciation :)

Any mishaps, as the one dragonn pointed out, will be fixed in the next revision. At 200+ skills, I'm pretty sure I faulted on some :).

About the wheel: an interesting thing to notice is that the Demon Lord is the only class that requires 5 skill families to achieve absolute skill. So, you get one that is implicit to the Demon Lord, plus the 5 needed... and you have no more empty slots.
