I'll have to give Heroes II a try then. I wasn't sure between Heroes II and Heroes V which to try next. The lack of balance with Heroes IV sounds unappealing.

Heroes 2 vs Heroes 3 - differences? Heroes 2 or 5 next best?

I couldn't find a thread on this, and I imagine it is something that the large majority of regular members up here know the answer to. As stated in another thread, I have recently begun playing Heroes 3 and enjoyed it so far. While I will surely keep playing HoMM 3 for a while here, I was looking to...

Hmm, looks like Castle takes this. If Conflux is included, do people tend to think they are the best? I found Necropolis and Ramparts to be more impressive than the Castle, maybe it was just those games. I honestly thought Tower or Ramparts would be 2nd on this poll when I saw the thread. I was unde...

I thought the Minotaurs were supposed to be really boss and damaging, surprised they have so few votes. They look cool too.

I've seen the most success with Crag Hack and Shiva. Then I discovered Crag Hack has been around since the first HoMM and he's basically a boss in the lore, so now I like him even more. So him and Shiva are the two I roll if I can get her to spawn at the tavern. Plus Shiva gives those Thunderbirds a...

More than that - your strategy will differ GREATLY on the map size, difficulty and the map itself you are playing. While you play you should always ask yourself a question - "is this action profitable for me?" (build a capitol or not. Attack the mobs or not. Hire a hero or not) I am quick...

Do the heroes regenerate in the tavern? I haven't even thought to check for that until now, like if they change every week or so. I would think the 350 gold with a hero is such a small amount, you would want the bonus. No? The magic I really haven't looked deeply into at all. All I've read is Earth ...

What generally must be avoided at all costs is the temptation to buy cool high-level creature structures and then run out of money to buy them all. I think that is one of the biggest mistakes I have been making so far, as well as trying furiously to secure a 2nd castle and wasting troops. Rush to g...

Heroes 3 - New to series, looking for beginner tips

Thank gog.com for introducing me to many of these games I skipped over to play FPS games back in the late 90's and early 2000's, I've started with HoMM 3 and gotten friends to play it with me. Few questions I have so far, since beginner Youtube guides are pretty nonexistant and I want to be better t...
