Re: raise dead

Even when you aren't the undead, i find it ridiculous that when you use raise dead on a stack, and the enemy kills off people in the stack, the people in the stack that are killed are the "raise dead" ones and not the "living" ones. This is only logical.The dead ones are used as meat shields by the...

@RK
if any argument against is met by your "this is not even close to an argument", then the discussion's closed indeed.

huh? well, that's spot on. plenty of units are good-looking, and a couple suck. what's wrong with saying this? i don't get it.

You yourself just admitted that you both have nothing to contribute and wouldn't contribute anyways i'm sorry, no offence, but i think you need to learn to read, or to learn English, or both.

it's not "that guy", there have been a couple of other fellows who agreed with me. as far as the "shut up if you can't do better"-argument goes... well, i can't design a car, but if you come here and present your car design, and it sucks, my own competence in the matter is highly irrelevant.

yes and yes. EDIT: i disagree with Kalah. If you do reach your goal of Imbue Arrow + Imbue Ballista, and that you combine it with Desrtuctive Magic + Fire Mastery + Ice/Lightning Mastery, then it becomes deadly. You can reduce the armour of virtually every unit in the field, and then, every time you...

It's not a "necro guide", you can't say "it's a necro guide" when all it has is "use vladimir and use raise dead". please. You haven't read many net guides, have you?! of course i have. some good, many not worth much. does that mean that "not worth much" should be the standard we're looking after? =)

Let a = your initiative Let b = enemy initiative Haste: (1.0 + 0.4)a/b = 1.4a/b Slow: a/(1.0 - 0.4)b = a/.6b = 1.67a/b i got that, i can do math =P my question is: why do you think that a/b is more representative than b/a ? (keeping a and b as you defined them of course). On topic: Technically, his...

If you take an arbitrary statistic called speed ratio = (your speed)/(enemy speed), decreasing the denominator is always better than increasing the numerator by the same proportion why not the opposite stat?

hmmmm... It really seems people have a hard time not mixing up "strategy", "munchkinism" (sorry GC), etc... Strategy guides are about how to use the strengths of your side, how to adapt to various situations using those strengths, etc. It's not about doing the same old thing with the same old hero a...

the ability gives them increased defense when using the Defend (and possibly Wait, according to the description at some sites, but i find this weird and haven't tested it) command. It is not a selected ability. If you have problems with creatures abilities, you should check the Modsmith section of t...

Given the tremendously high initiative of the Inferno units, and the fact that Light is never resisted, it appears clear that Light is much better.
Now, is it worth it to specialize in a school whose spells you're not sure to get... i don't know =)

yeah, that would be massive, except that in my experience it doesn't work... however, i've just remembered that i did my calculations with Archers. Would it be possible that it only works in melee?
