Just curious how the hell can a warlock obtain Resistance ability from Defence tier. The prerequisites seem to occupy all three ability slots. Does it mean that a warlock won't ever learn Counterspell?

@Lexa: As mentioned in a previous post, I am aware of the Resistance issue, and I classified it as a H5 bug. See: https://www.celestialheavens.com/1148307297

Can anyone test it?

Hmmm ... why a downloadable version is an exe file ????? and xls ???? You know people use somthing beside windows and exe and xls are WINDOWS formats ...

What are about to do Mac or GNU/Linux users ? Plese think about users of other OS when putting content on a web page

So my suggestion is to put either an pdf or Opendocument format () and especially to do something with this exe .... swf would be nice as downloadable version as I do not think that you are going to exacutable for other Operating systems


thank you !

Scorch: The skills seem to pop up differently - At least in different maps. Tried with a leveling trainer to get a "perfect way" to howl but it changed when maps changed.

The only tip I can give you is to try to "lock" trees since you only get 4 skills choices of the ones available to you at any time. Lowering the number of available skills really helps.
Say you start off with logistics. Dont pick advanced logistics until you have gotten pathfinding.(Unless you HAVE to - to avoid picking wrong skill tree)
If something goes wrong and you end up with only navigation/scouting you can always pick one of the other skills. (Basic attack or whatever)
This usually works but sometimes backfires tho and only gives you 2 choices from one tree even tho you have another one open. (If so - usually happens in the late 20s)

Ive just made some printable copies of the wheel in JPG format, after adding on skill titles to all the abilities. It doesn't look great, but it isn't bad- and now I can use the printable pages while playing. When I get home tonight, I'll upload them to my webspace, and post an image here so you can decide if you'd like them.

Added:
Here is a fragment of one of the images (I wanted a picture small enough to not be cumbersome:

As you see, I have placed the skill names by each picture. When printed out (even in greyscale) it is quite legible.
I have 6 seperate images- one for each hero type. The Wizard wheel was the first one I made, and so is of slightly lower quality than the others, but is still quite usable. A ZIP containing all of them is about 800k.

We can host them at CH - just e-mail me the zip file and I'll upload it.

Great work btw, I was just thinking about making such for myself - now I can spend my time playing instead :)

I just sent you the file. There are 6 jpgs in there- one for each class (which is which should be obvious from the file names)

Witnessed at least one skill i dont see on the wheel, so ill mention it here. I think it was called iron maiden, it seems likely to be an Inferno skill based on ballista and fire skills cause it made his ballista bolts have fireball like radius and damage every shot.

@Azith
That is Deleb's special.

Iron Maiden
Ballista's shots under hero's command achieves fireball effect. Spell power of this fireball increases by +1 for every four hero's level.
