Re: Might & Magic: Heroes VI - Haven - Fair is Foul and Foul is Fair

I don't know if it works on the harder difficulties, but you can get rid of the haven opponent a lot more quickly if you simply skip the forts and head straight for the towns. Once you've got their towns, you can take your time capturing the forts.

Re: Might & Magic: Heroes VI - Haven - Something is Rotten

After going through the campaigns again, the key to the map is that you can upgrade your troops while the Stronghold enemies cannot. Upgraded creature dwellings give you enhanced growth and tougher troops. If you use at least two stacks of Sentinels (for the stacking defensive buff to your adjacent ...

Re: Might & Magic: Heroes VI - Dungeon - The Call of Malassa

I restarted the map, and it appears that I just had *really* bad luck with the random monster stacks. Going much better.

Re: Might & Magic: Heroes VI - Dungeon - The Call of Malassa

Just barely got this campaign working (I had the "black screen" issue previously), made a beeline for the black dragons, and so far as I can tell, you're not beating them quickly enough to stop the reinforcements from obliterating you. As it was, I was only two days ahead of Sylsai, who co...

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

Reading this reminds me of my gaming, I'm just gonna take a minute to rant again. Sanctuary has no flyers! When in the history of Heroes did we get a faction with no flyers? The only unit that can hit inside the enemy base is the Kappa, and that's only using their ridiculous toad leap. A bit late, ...

Re: MMX: Legacy Info

Honestly, MMX makes so much more sense with Seahaven available early that I wouldn't be surprised if blocking off the bridge were an executive idea rather than a designer idea.

In addition to the above, to make the bridge passable from the start of a new game, go into StreamingAssets/Maps/theworld.xml and look for: <Slot Height="6.13505" Terrain="BLOCKED" TerrainSound="NONE" MapArea="ASHEN_HILLS"> <Position> <X>106</X> <Y>67</Y> </Po...

Re: MMX: Legacy Info

Ubisoft has shut down the MMX server. As the game checks whether you're signed on to the server in order to progress past act 1, this poses some difficulty in playing the game.

Re: Might & Magic: Heroes VI - Stronghold - The Barbarous Seven

I have to wonder at the thought process on the part of the mapmaker: "You know what would be fun? A map where we'll spawn three heroes at once who can go around terrain barriers to hit in two days what takes the player four days to get to." "No, that's not fun enough. Make sure that e...

Unfortunately, 5) Frenzy no longer works to stun a stack for two turns. Has anybody beat the last boss fight recently?

Re: Might & Magic: Heroes VI - Sanctuary - The Blood-Dimmed Tide

In my most recent playthrough, landing on the Necromancer island in the top left corner and triggering the conversation there seems to have stopped the invasions through the whirlpool. The next time I play through, perhaps I'll test it, if I remember. :)

Re: Can't play

If they weren't cloudsaved, you may be out of luck. On the other hand, between the might/magic choice and the blood/tears choice, the campaigns are eminently replayable (I recently started over, myself, and for much the same reason . . . I didn't copy over my saves when I got a new computer). Are yo...

Re: MM7 - WORST team compo?

Far more than 25%. The time you spend not having to heal/raise anybody allows you to go full offense, meaning they're dead even sooner.

Re: Is Armor Worth It? Interesting Numbers

Speaker For The Dead isn't a MM6 Monster. Keep in mind, I'm talking about MM6. Okay; I did some testing, and here's an oddity: It looks like anything with a *ranged* non-physical auto-attack ignores Armor Class entirely. *Druid* enemies will hit you at 100% no matter your armor class. However, go fi...

Re: Is Armor Worth It? Interesting Numbers

In the late game, everything hits with 99% accuracy anyway, so unless you can stack Power or Immunities or relevant resistances, you're back to "less helpful than it could be" Unless Grayface was lying, this is false. Nor has it been my experience. but i mm auto attacks from monster are f...

Re: [MM6] Is There Any Data On Stuns From Weapon Skills?

That's a question, too . . . is the stun effect of weapons just a copy of the Earth Spell, or is it its own effect?

[MM6] Is There Any Data On Stuns From Weapon Skills?

I'm assuming the chance to stun is equal to the skill rank, and that stunning an opponent keeps them from acting for a short time. Those are both vast assumptions, though. Even if they're accurate, how long does the stun last? Is it affected by anything? Are there enemies that are immune to it? Main...

Re: Is Armor Worth It? Interesting Numbers

Armsmaster is without a doubt the way to go and makes dual-wield a no-brainer. However, as I mentioned, I was talking about MM6 in my last post, wherein Armsmaster doesn't exist. Without Armsmaster, swords aren't getting any bonus damage whatsoever, nor are daggers(other than a tripling of the *dagg...
