AI cheats too much

How is it that AI's creatures can use once-per-combat abilities an unlimited number of times? I was fighting fire elementals. They have the Nova ability, which is clearly described as something that can be activated once per combat, and which is what I observe when I have them in my army. But when I...

Re: Trial by Fire Campaign Walkthrough (last game version)

It looks like the google doc has been deleted. A quick question if anyone knows the answer. In Mission 2 and 3, are you able to recruit additional heroes from towns?

Re: Stuck on Necromancer - Thoughts and intentions

Hi, I just finished this map scenario and would like to share how I managed to Clear it out. I managed to lure Johari to the oasis, then I teleported to town ad then ran straight for the mission objective, which is to capture a town. No fight With Johari. :) Smart. But I like beating the crap out o...

Might & Magic: Heroes VI - Sanctuary - The Fury and the Mire

Maltz needs to quit thinking about this game like it's Heroes V. There's no tier-1, tier-2, ..., or tier-7. That's totally misleading, because it would imply that, for example, "tier-3" has a higher power rating than "tier-2", which is not always the case. There are just Core, Elite, and Champion. B...

Might & Magic: Heroes VI - Haven - Tempt not a Desperate Man

I am pretty sure your choice of Valeska or Lord Kilburn doesn't depend on whether you're a might hero or a magic hero. It depends on whether you follow the blood path or the tear path, respectively. I played a Paladin and got Lord Kilburn. But this brings up an interesting question: if I had not cho...

Has anyone encountered a weird bug with boarding ships in Haven Campagne map 3? Randomly, for some reason, my hero just can't board a ship after landing (yes, he has plenty of movement points left). When I hover the ship, it just shows a small red ship icon instead of the normal anchor icon. He woul...

Favorite "idle" animation

You know how each creature would perform some silly act if you take too long to perform an action on its turn? For example, griffins would pull a worm from the ground; sentries would do a dance, etc. My favorite, so far (I haven't played all factions), would have to be the centaurs. They pull out a ...

I can consistently repro this. I tried to fight a hit-n-run battle between my harpies and some slow melee creatures (like maulers), so in Tactic mode, I removed all troops except the harpies stack. The game would hang when the harpies "wait" on the first turn, every time. If I add more tro...

You're right. It doesn't make sense though, because they are still "vulnerable to air". Creatures shouldn't be vulnerable to the element that they wield.

Coral and Pearl Priestesses now shoot lightning bolts and do air damage. Didn't they do water damage before?

I'm nearly sure order of your own creatures with the same initiative is determined by battlefield position: top to bottom, left to right. I was coming to that conclusion as well. That's why Ell1e thinks it never changes, because succubi, as shooters, probably don't move during a battle, whereas my ...

It definitely doesn't change during battle, if Succubus acts before Succubus 2 in the first turn, they'll act first during all following turns, unless something changes their ini. That's absolutely not true. It changes constantly for me. Playing Haven, I usually split sentries into one big stack fo...

You can try to improve your chance of being offered Logistic. When you are presented a choice between two new skills, pick the one that is most likely to be offered. For example, for a wizard, Enlightment and Summoning have 15% of being offered. If you get these two skills out of the way, among the ...

100% no retaliation is one thing, but if the Vampire Lords aren't hitting for a lot in the first place they aren't going to regen a lot either. You make it sound like Vampire Princes do more damage than Vampire Lords. I use Vampire Lords, to simplify things. No Retal works on all creatures, but not...

Why do you think it's a bug? The spell's description specifically says that it affects non-undead. Gargoyles certainly fit the criteria.

I have stopped playing necro because, for me, it's by far the easiest race to play. If I have to judge how powerful a race, that would be my basic criteria. As Banedon pointed out, ore can be a bit of a problem. But since it's so easy for the main hero to attack neutrals aggressively, right from the...
