Metathron, I see your point.

Forget what I said about Heroes then, you're right they shouldn't be part of the Creature evolution.

I guess it simply means that H3 will be out of the druid poll.

Monks on the other hand are merely religious devotees of the Haven faction, they're the servants of "Good". (not to mention they only benefit from life magic)

That's a nice story. :D

Seriously though, I fully agree with you in general, just not in this particular case. In both cases we have mid-tier shooters who look (and act) pretty much identical. What the developers did is merely take the HoMM II druid, put it in the knight's army and smack a different name on it, because as you say, a monk makes more sense in the context of a knight's castle. That's why it's the same unit in my mind, incomparably more similar than the HoMM I & II druid vs their HoMM V counterpart.

Anyhoo, I voted for the HoMM IV monk. The HoMM III, monks, look great, but I prefer to see a face since we're talking about "just" a monk, and not a mysterious practitioner of nature magic. ;)

H5 Zealot, their color contrast and white is intriguing. Looks fanatic. Love having them in army, hate fighting against them, though as hammered iron.

voted for H3 upg. cuz they are the only good ones. the non. upg. monk for H3 just doesn't look magical. H4 one looks too evil and for H5, since when did monks start buying themselves a mace and hitting ppl with it they are just not monk'ish. :proud:

A humble monk from Heroes3 will do for me.
his counterparts in H4 looks almost no different to Erathian versions

For me... clergymen of the Church of Elrath looks a littlebit too luxurious and too outlandish for me. he calls for an orbital strike instead of using Goku style power :D

H3 Zealots.

The H5 Inquisitors look like Paladins for me.

H3 Zealots for me. There's something classic about those blue robes he wears. Stlylish outfit all the way! I prefer these guys over their drunken brothers from Heroes IV any time.

Don't worry if things are going badly today. They will be much worse tomorrow.

Voted HIII zealots, as well as the efreets, it's a closed vote between HIII&HIV ones. Heroes V are carppy in comparation, imo
