Wulfstan's Defiance - The Border Zone

Yes, like the screenshots (and sardonic comments) and btw Elvin's avatar is pretty cool too. Playing on Hard this mission is pretty easy, and the main point is to make sure you don't win too soon (so long as you keep those 300 shieldguards separate it won't trigger) before you reach the level cap.

Hammers of Fate → Freyda's Dilemma → Negotiation

Ah, I see, went bvack to an earlier save - if one clicks on the objective one gets more details. Still learning! Many thanks again...

Hammers of Fate → Freyda's Dilemma → Negotiation

Yes, went back armed with your helpful advice and took exactly what you said, sailing through the rest of the scenario without difficulty. I think I had 10 paladins before i threw up my hands and tried a single squire. I did check the objectives and didn't see the exact numbers - it just said someth...

Hammers of Fate → Freyda's Dilemma → Negotiation

Yes, I'm puzzled by how he knew the exact army number. I reduced my army steadily as they kept saying I had too many, till I had a single squire. They then let me in, but of course I couldn't fight later.

Yes, excellent as usual, Maltz, but agree with Corribus on the minor points -it's taking all the peasant huts that makes the druids "come out of the forest" and fight like, er, men. And the eastern road gives a route to Caldwell that isn't blocked by archangels or dragons. A clue is right a tthe sta...

The Mage → Zehir`s Hope

Many thanks for all the walkthroughs, guys - I'd have given up at a couple of points without them. Unlike UselessZombie I enjoyed the plot, though not the ham voices (Zehir is especially annoying). There's always been a balance in HOMM between those of us who want more or less serious characters and...

The Triumvirate

Oh, one other point: the cutscene where Findan explains what needs to be done to defeat Markal confused me - I thought we had to find the things referred to on the map before tackling Markal's final hold-out. Thanks to the walkthrough for clarifying it!

The Triumvirate

Another very helpful walkthrough. Note that oce Godric is released he can go and do something else (like explore the underworld) and the garrison will still surrender to Zehir instead, though you'll get a Godric cut-scene. However, be careful with Godric if he doesn't have significant forces - I sen...

I found the horned demons at the first dwelling impossible to recruit - they showed up ready to be clicked on, but greyed out. (1.5, normal difficulty)

Er...it's such a long time ago that I don't recall this. I presumably downloaded it when I downloaded the patch...how is it accessed?

Thanks for the help!

Can't download patch 1.4

I have the European (manual gives prices for support calls in £s and a Surrey, UK edition for returns) limited edition and was able last year to download the first 3 patches and play the campaign up to the Vampire Lord - my current version appears as 1.3. I then got sidetracked by real life and have...

The Ranger - The Emerald Ones

Like Orfinn I found this one tricky even on Easy! I tried following the guide on Hard but the central town was heavily defended by the time I got there no matter how much I hurried. On Easy, I hurried and still met a superior force in the underworld on my way to the central town. So instead I took i...

The Ranger → The Refugees

BUG: There is a blue keymaster's tent near the Hill fort which thinks it's a blue gate - when you beat its guardians and try to get the key, it gives you the 'you need the key for this' message. If it worked properly one could get at the real blue gate near 6, which appears to protect a cartographer...

In some ways, Nival reminds me a bit of Paradox Entertainment. For those not familiar, Paradox is the developer behind the Europa Universalis/Hearts of Iron/Victoria/Crusader Kings family of games. They start with a fantastic basic game design--borrowed from their own Europa Universalis for Paradox...

On Heroic, wasn't too awful, though I'm grateful to the walkthrough for explaining that we need to get BOTH heroes through to the border - an event to that effect, or at least a clarification in the objectives, would be nice. I parked Shadya in the Sanctuary in the middle of the map and left her to ...

Brilliantly thorough walkthrough - thanks! I found the level fairly easy on Hard with the enhanced meteor and implosion spells, though at one point i was running low on troops - be careful not to actually run out and lose!
