Heroes 2 & 3: Favorite Level 4 Spell

Some spells were omitted due to the poll option limit:
Fire Shield, Frenzy, Slayer, Sorrow, Water Walk.

Fire Shield is great as an innate ability of Efreet Sultans, but would I waste a precious turn of my hero to cast it? Nah, so out of the poll it goes.

Heroes 2 also had "Elemental Storm", a weaker armageddon, at level 4 and armageddon itself at level 5.

Berserk is my choice, although all other spells are awesome as well.

I once beat an army of 120 Wolves (or was it five stacks of 120 Wolves?) using maybe five skeletons and two zombies or so thanks largely to Berserk. It's one of the main reasons H2 spellcasters typically become far scarier than might heroes in the endgame.

Not that I didn't have a lot of fun back in the day using Solmyr's favorite spell, of course...

Berserk. Especially deadly against wandering creatures (in H2 anyway), who can't defend themselves against it.

I know that I am weird, but I like Prayer with expert Water magic. And when I have Loynis from Castle, it is even stronger.

I especially like Prayer with expert Water when I play with Necropolis (ironical, I know). That makes all those skeletons a lot more deadly!

Voted Town Portal. Berserk comes a close second. The ability to appear in the last minute in a keep that is facing attack is way to good to be overlooked.

Berserk is a very mysterious spell. The latest
researches made by AlexSpl revealed a lot of surprising things about.

Vote Clone. Berserk is extremely good, but clone can be as much of a winner. Clone those Archangels and start resurrecting...
