Blood or Tears path?

Postby Avonu » Oct 26 2011, 9:35

I wonder which path you fallowed for each of five Griffins? And why?

IIRC there is no way to stay neutral because choosing your destiny is mandatory quest in second map of campaign.


I fallowed mainly Tears path for story reasons, so advanced classes abilities didn't have any influence on my choises.


1. Anastasya - Tears - because she is young, naive and undead don't want reveange. ;)
2. Kiril - Tears. I don't know why,maybe because of Xana. ;)
3. Sandor - Tears - I don't like slavers at all, so there was no other choise for me.
4. Irina - Blood - well, after being forced to marriage Gerhart it was logical choise for her. ;)
5. Anton - didn't play him yet but probably Blood path. He seems to me be perfect blood hero - honour and faith above all others and no brain at all. :P

To be honest in case of Sandor and Kiril I would prefer to stay Neutral.

In each case I decided based on what abilities I would get as I leveled it up. And I didn't use the default hero in any of the campaigns. Off the top of my head, I think I went blood once (stronghold) and tears all the other times.

That's out of doing necro and inferno campaigns twice and the others once.

I'm a pacifist goodie-two-shoes, so I chose Tears for everyone. I would actually argue that Tears suits Irina more than Blood - she strikes me as diplomatic and open-minded. Anton and Kiril seem more fitting for Blood.

My play style has always been more suited to tears, plus the fact that I didn't have to worry about letting enemies flee (and thereby avoiding less-than-exciting battles) or accepting new troops via diplomacy, both of which give you tears points.

That said, I like the OP and the early responses, because it agrees with my intuition, which was to choose the path that I felt was most appropriate in a role-playing setting. I'm already looking forward to going back and playing "against type" but I do feel that this is a step (albeit a small one) towards more dynamic role playing that has always been latent in the campaign arcs.

I am for whatever are the finest skills in the tree. Why should I carry some freakin' abilities I don't use? As from what I saw from the demo there are some really nice Tears and some really nice Blood ones. To hell with the story. :P

Sandor is blood, cuz he's an orc leader and likes to f*ck **** up.
The rest is tears because it's generally easier to avoid fights

Haven't played all the campaigns yet, but the tears seems less annoying. But I think I'll let the skills decide in the future.

Can't vote. Where is the "I'm an opportunist and will take whatever skills seem best at the time?" option?

So far have taken blood for Anastasya and Anton, tears for Irina; mostly because I want to be able to play the alternative ending in the final campaign, but I actually ended up liking both of the skills/spells the sanctuary magic hero gets by choosing tears (Serenity and Tsunami I think they're called).

Playing Inferno at the moment, and gravitating towards blood again. :devil: Haven't played stronghold yet.

As you have 5 heroes you will end with choosing one of path anyway (ex. 3 blood and 2 tears heroes = blood path most the way). No matter if from story or skills reasons.

I am curious if people choose these path because of story or only because of skills. Or they just don't care and are choosing path because they got enough blood/tears first.

For Irina Tears. For many others Blood. Depends strictly on what can be assumed as the best choice.. :P

Tears for every hero. It's not as bad in Heroes as it is in other games, but I generally can't play the 'evil' path without feeling like a complete d*ck. The only way to make that work is imagening your character is Samuel L. Jackson from Pulp Fiction. The 'good' route tends to be annoyingly butthurt about some stuff but is at least the more decent choice overall.

Why do we have to? I understand your core motivation, but there's really nothing inherently bad or morally depraved about it, not to mention nothing wrong at all as long as it doesn't violate the forum rules. Taking the stance of absolute denial towards it is just plain prudishness.
Make you strong places to dwell and practice the evil of your arts. Build great monuments to stand through the ages and remind your followers of the task with which you have been charged. Use these halls of iniquity to perpetrate your schemes against the infestation that has taken the fields and lakes of this land from you, their rightful masters. Never forget the hatred that must finally overcome and consume mankind. Dwell in your dungeons and brood. - Sheltem the Dark

Aside from what Xel said; sure, if you can supply me with a word that has the same meaning that people don't mind being used. I pick the words I use carefully and completely aside from what your stance is towards said 'imageboards', some words just convey a meaning better than others.

I go for Blood because frankly I can't see giving up all those experience points by letting fights go.

The poll is incomplete... how about you add the "I DONT CARE" path?
