Faction Personality and Quiz

Postby lightningkmf » Jul 16 2011, 20:40

Hello I am new to the Might and Magic series but have been enjoying the beta play thus far. I was wondering if anyone would be interested in describing the personality and play style of each faction or if you could possibly think up a quiz that one could take to see what a good faction for that person may be?

I am also curious about the leveling up of heroes. Does each faction have a certain spell school they are better at? Such as Sanctuary being the best at water.

Thanks in advance

It certainly doesn't seem so...

Yea I did find that a bit odd.

I have played as the necropolis and Sanctuary thus far. It seems like Necropolis has a WAY stronger faction passive. Is that true or am I doing something wrong?

Here's my Quiz:

Do you like to smash things with a club while wearing wacky masks? If so, Stronghold fits you like a glove.

Do you like to build armies that are virtually indistinguishable from one another and you don't suffer from terrible red colorblindness. Well, Inferno is for you.

Do you like to use units that are named things in which they have no resemblance to whatsoever? Look no further than Necropolis.

Do you enjoy reading manga on the beach and wonder what it would be like to pee in a Kappa's head? If that's something you've thought about, think about choosing Sanctuary.

Do you like hearing the phrase, "Griffin Eternal?" If you do, choose Haven.

Maybe Sanctuary magic heroes will specialize in water magic? ;|

Do I need to make another quiz? Fine, answer these questions and I'll tell you the best faction for you.

1. What's your favorite color?

2. Which of these would you most like as a pet: Bird, Snake, Dog, Tarantula, Ferret?

3. You go for a casual walk in the forest and a bear suddenly jumps out from a cave. Do you:

A: Make a run for it.
B: Attempt to put the bear in a bear hug.
C: Call your friends up on your iphone for help.
D: Play dead
E: Give the bear your picnic basket

4. Which would be your favorite thing to eat: Chicken, Cheese, Tofu, Water Melon, Bell Peppers

Questions Stolen from Ogre Battle:

5. What do you look for most in a mate:

A: Tenderness
B: Physical Beauty
C: Purity
D: Wisdom
E: Strength

6. You discover a traitor amongst your ranks. What do you do?

A: Banish the traitor
B: Give the traitor 100 lashes
C: Execute the traitor
D: Pardon the traitor
E: Lock up the traitor

7. If you could save only one person from the flames of battle, who would you choose:

A: Your decrepit mother
B: Your lover
C: Your child
D: Your best friend
E: Your pet

I still think the first quiz should have been sufficient... Anyway, just answer honestly.

But any hero who has access to the water magic school can do that and there's no bonus for being from Sanctuary...

of course not, having units immune to fire sure is useful when you pack a lot of fire spells

I meant that a Sanc. hero's specialty would be like a specific water spell having increased damage/effect per level up, like H3 style. Although, with the new level up system, I doubt they would start with the spell, which means this idea probably doesn't exist.

Oh, they do have some water spell specialities, but as you can custom build a hero it's not Sanctuary only...

Fire is associated with AoE, while water isn't... so it's less useful really...

A bear in forest? You are lucky if you encounter them in mountain in National Park.
But to answer your question: I will call Elmyra Duff.

I don't know - water melon maybe? Depends of how I would feel in that moment.

Sanctuary magic IS water and maybe air too. After all, one of their unique building has four day bonus to water or air magic. Not to mention that Irina Dynasty Weapon is water magic based staff.

make a run for it.
in a rp sense. I would have sent someone ahead to check for the bear. I would always want to be a few steps ahead of my opponents.
4. Which would be your favorite thing to eat: Chicken, Cheese, Tofu, Water Melon, Bell Peppers


chicken.... though really steak
Questions Stolen from Ogre Battle:

D: Wisdom
E: Strength

out of that list tenderness but I would say similar interests with a fun easy going personality.

A: Banish the traitor
B: Give the traitor 100 lashes
C: Execute the traitor

in a rpish game I would save whoever was the most beneficial to my character and he could use the most.
