Masters of Magic → The Isle of Pyre

Champion difficulty: You won't be able to take out most of the neutral stacks without horrible losses - don't bother. Use single berzerker stacks to take the chest/campfire, pick up the crossbow and handbook (don't forget to give it to Bohb), recruit all the units you can and take everything south t...

They are supposed to be homages to the previous games, those names are only mentioned in passing, the characters have no relevance to the story. In canonical terms, we can suppose that there were powerful men called Sandro and Crag Hack in Ashan's past, but these people are not the same as those fro...

Half-Dead → Eater of Children

Contrary to the walkthrough, it's quite a simple matter to take out the first orange town with minimal losses, and is almost certainly a necessity when play Expert or higher as the neutral stacks of Berzerkers and Vampires will be too large for you to take on with just your starting forces. Split of...

Elwin and Shaera → Together

I finished this map on expert just by running straight to Harke's town with Elwin alone and solo'ing him before the end of the second week. It was actually my first playthrough and I somewhat wandered down there, with a little extra preparation (say, some fodder units and Gramin to distract damage f...

Eh, I don't see any reason why we should consider the creature "on its own", it's not like you can ever control a creature as such. What unit is "best" should be based on its overall usefulness/effectiveness in a game situation........ and that is always with an accompanying hero...

To be honest Raeleg your ideas remind me too much of the Dungeon faction. The Fortress has always been a collection of different beast folk rather than a unified force. If they were to make one it should fit in to the Heroes V style of of more race-orientated towns, i.e. less random assortment of s...

The purple hero is intended to run in (hopefully) like a lamb to the slaughter as soon as it possibly can after spawning. If you're experiencing something different then yes it is some kind of script bug, but not a serious one by the sounds of it.

Why is everyone posting their favourite town in the 'town you least like to play' thread? :|

Anyway, it has to be dungeon. Dark elves? lame. Taking out stacks with deep hydras? lame. Raping 1000000000000 neutral zombies with 10 blood furies? lame.

The Necromancer → The Invasion

If you really cant convert the towns (bring Markal with staff equipped to town, enter town/exit town with 10,000 gold), and you've already taken all the neutral bone dragon stacks (From my recollection there's three: Two stacks on the shore south of the closest mage town, one in the inferno area in ...

I'm pretty sure your hero has to be a certain level to cast town portal (in the 20s?)

As for the second one, if you have the mana, the only reason the spell would be grayed would be if the spell cannot have an effect so :|
