On Large maps, I find I never go back to my starting town after about the end of Week 3. It just doesn't seem worth it. I think the town portal spell made H3 completely imbalanced, and if it could take you to any town in H5, then reaching level 20 significantly before your opponent would basically ...

It should. As I recall, that fixed it.

Re: Maahir's Gambit

I'm kinda new to this game, so if this question has been asked before, please bear with me. Anyway, I'm playing Maahir's Gambit, and I've found the first artifact. 3 or 4 turns later, the game says my Hero has given up hope and I lose. What's up? What am I doing wrong? What version are you playing?...

Strangely, I don't use any, which is really unusual for me. Even back in HII I used to tweak the resources to make the game more challenging, and I was a huge WoG fan. I think the reason I've avoided mods in HV is because of the endless updates/patches I have been afraid a mod would mess something u...

Sort of a bug or at the least a poorly designed map: Final map of the ToE campaign. For some reason, Gotai (an ally controlled by the AI), surfaces and roams around. Unfortunately, then he decides to try to go underground. Every time he does, because of this map's rules, he is teleported back to the...

Re: Me too!

I'm having the same problem. I'm ready to take the final, unpronouncable city. Its guarded by a medium size army w/ a hero who promptly runs away at the start of combat. I then move onto the city itself to start combat with the city guard and nothing happens. The combat icon is shown but no combat ...

Hmm. If you've waited this long, you might want to consider waiting for them to sell them as a bundle. FWIW, I agree with Wulfstan but not the others. HIV was an unplayable deviant from the series. It was rushed and led to the end of 3DO. Never before or since have I been so disappointed in a game. ...

ok, after several earlier saves failed, I went to a save rather far back and then everything worked. Bizarre though.

Gamecrash bug

I started a topic on this but putting it here as well. In the ToE orc campaign, mission 5 "Hunting the Hunter." The main objective is to take the final Wizard castle, "Shabibya" (sp?). I have cleared everything. When I try to attack this castle, I get an hourglass for about a second, but it won't le...

Game crashing bug ToE Hunting the hunter (minor spoilers)

The main objective is to take the final Wizard castle, "Shabibya" (sp?). I have cleared everything. When I try to attack this castle, I get an hourglass for about a second, but it won't let me attack. I guess there is supposed to be a cutscene. If I leave Gotai on the doorstep of the castle at the e...

Get teal to attack you in town. Destroy catapult and watch him retreat. That happened to me as well in week 5, just a turn or two after I broke the garrison and had brown join me. Also had that other hero work as "main", atleast for that part of the map - beginning. As his war machines, and soon af...

I flagged some yellow mines, and I don't think that it will end the mission if you can take down the castle. When I did that map, I ignored yellow and ended up finishing the mission pretty quickly with much of the map unexplored. I wondered if that kept me from getting some combo artifacts that wou...

Pre-ToE, normal = instant retreat and hard = never retreat. Toe, normal = never retreat and hard = instant retreat. Is that about right? @LarkinVB, which resources, 105555 for both? Not exactly. In the retreats I've seen (hard, ToE campaign) they usually come after several rounds of combat. Never k...

Huh, I guess the campaign AI is different from the scenario AI. In my expirience (even in HoMM 1-4) the AI will CONSTANTLY retreat, unless they have a vastly supirior force than you do (in fact it gets quite annoying after a while, thank goodness for the shackles of war). You're kidding. Have you b...

ok, clear me up. I'm fine with holding down shift to split troops...only inconvenient when I'm giving a bottle to the baby. But how else do you copy and paste other than right clicking the mouse?

ToE AI

So what differences have people observed? So far, on the plus side, I've noticed that the AI will retreat...usually after I raise a big stack or summon elementals. On the minus side, it seems to turtle its forces rather than charge even when it has the numbers. Once last night, it had a large stack ...

Re: ToE Necro Campaign - Sorrow and Vampirism

I've progressed to mission 2, but haven't seemed to be able to find Sorrow (lv 1) and Vampirism (Lv 5) two spells in my Necro Towns. Can you throw an Expert Mass Sorrow? That will be wicked. :D Any idea? Thanks. I got both of them (as well as regeneration and arcane crystal) from mage guilds of the...

You mean Curse of the Netherworld. And towards the end of the campaign, it is one of your best spells. I think the only battle I didn't really use it in was the final battle with Orlando. I was more focused on hindering his legions. oh yeah, curse, sorry. The effect is so bright as soon as I click ...
