Heroes 3 AI quirks and tricks

As some of you may know, I am currently playing through Heroes of Might and Magic 3 on the Impossible difficulty. At a few points in the game, abusing the AI proved a valuable asset. During my playthrough, I have observed some quirks in the AI. Among them are: -Capturing mines seems to cause the AI ...

Re: H3 Mechanics Questions

The Heroes 3 Wiki says that the Thieves' Guild building for the Cove in HotA opens 2 additional tiers of information in the Guild, so it gives more information than in Standard HoMM3. What are those 2 tiers of info? Also, in the standard game, one of the pieces of information that a Thieves' Guild c...

Running H3 Multiplayer

I have the Complete Edition of Heroes of Might and Magic III without HotA installed. I want to be able to play multiplayer with H3 Complete. Note, however, that I DO NOT want to play multiplayer with the changes that HotA implemented; I just want to play standard H3. Is there a way to play multiplay...

Re: Unholy Alliance → Harvest

I think you just got really, really lucky. I am currently playing Unholy Alliance and have just finished Gelu's first scenario and am currently playing through Final Peace. The skills that I got as Gelu in Unholy Alliance were not the same as those for Gelu in Elixir of Life (I even loaded a save an...

Re: H3 Mechanics Questions

Thanks for your reply. I've got two more questions. Can Faerie Dragons and any units that have Magic Mirror deflect AOE spells that affect them, but are not directly targeted at them? For example, if I were to cast Frost Ring, Inferno, or Fireball near a unit with Magic Mirror (But not directly over...

Re: Playing SoD on hardest difficulty

I've managed to beat Hack and Slash without having to restart. Turns out that the enemy hero would only try to teleport-rush me when I got within a certain distance of one of his towns, so, through trial and error, I found the right spot to stand in without provoking him. I then ended my turn and ru...

H3 Mechanics Questions

I've got some questions regarding game and unit mechanics. So I've read about a strategy on the H3 wiki called "Wraight bombing". Basically, a secondary hero with 7 stacks of wraiths rushes an enemy hero in order to drain said hero of his/her mana. 7 stacks drains it faster than 1 stack, r...

Re: Playing SoD on hardest difficulty

"In the second mission you could have captured all the castles and killed all the heroes except the death knight in the underworld. Then you would have unlimited time to learn every spell and visit every power-up." No, I couldn't have killed every hero except Marzeth. The enemy's main hero...

Re: Playing SoD on hardest difficulty

Alright, status update: I've beaten Mission 3 of Crag's campaign. However, I could only level up Crag Hack to level 18 because, despite the fact that I had expert logistics and advanced pathfinder for most of the mission, the enemy main hero could still outpace me and I had to rush to avoid getting ...

Re: Playing SoD on hardest difficulty

Soooo I've beaten Yog's, Gem's, and Gelu's campaign. The "Strike hard, strike fast" strategy worked wonders. "Nothing carries over between campaigns, everything carries over between scenarios within a single campaign. In "Unholy Alliance" you 'll get a 25 level Yog with tota...

Re: Playing SoD on hardest difficulty

Hmm, what about the Primary Skills like Attack, Defense, Spell power, and Knowledge? Are these randomized as well or do they carry over? Also, does the hero's spell book carry over or would I have to re-learn all of the spells in the next campaign?

Playing SoD on hardest difficulty

I've decided to try to beat HoMM3: Shadow of Death on the maximum possible difficulty. I'm currently playing the Birth of a Barbarian campaign as Yog. I've beaten the first mission, but am having trouble with the second. My problem is that, by the time I amass a decent army, the enemy amasses an unb...

Language Compatibility

I have seen lots of mods and custom maps for Heroes 3 on here that I would like to try out some day. However, these mods and maps are in English, while my version of HoMM3 is in Russian. Are maps/mods written in a language different from the base version compatible? If I tried to run, say, HotA with...

We all need some memes in our lives, so post your HoMM-related memes (Or just funny, HoMM-related pictures in general) here. I'll start off with some Russian memes that I found, translations courtesy of myself: Refractory golem: https://u.kanobu.ru/editor/images/71/8fec0e92-1c9a-44fd-b879-e5b3c98178...

Mighty Moos, how do they work?

As we all know, Mighty Gorgons of the Fortress have a special ability called "Death Stare" which, when triggered, can kill a certain amount of units in an enemy stack. The H3 Wiki says that "Every gorgon in the stack has 10% chance to cause death stare", and that the total number...
