I don't remember the H1 music. But honestly, they're all good in their own way to me. This is all very rough and approximate.

Okay, on my second playthrough, I defeated all three enemies. BUT. After I defeat Toghrul, I play as Azkaal, who plays (alone!) against Xana with an immense army, massively stacked in her favor. A battle I have no realistic chance of winning. When he is defeated, the mission fails, too. Is there som...

What is with this misconception, anyway?

There is a tactics phase. The hero just needs to learn the tactics skill to unlock it. Just like in their precious III.

Speaking of Sanctuary map 2. After I complete the quest to defeat the red hero and get the southwest town under my control, the northeastern gates don't open, even though the tooltip indicates they're supposed to open when this quest is complete.

Is this working as intended?

Haven 1, I think. Probably doesn't matter, though, since they don't intersect except for that one cutscene in Haven 1.

Noticed a bug in the second Stronghold mission. In the first one, I gave Sandor the Tears specialization. In the second, when I approach the first orc town, after the cutscene I see a message box: "Sandor is already following the path of Dragon Tears. Path of Dragon Blood quest failed." An...

For me, the main problem isn't the AI's aggressiveness - if anything, it turtles too much in its towns, and the way it cheats with population growth means it's impossible to assault directly, so first I need to find ways to make the AI split its army and lure its hero into a position where it won't ...

Yeah, you'd think they'd try to diversify their demographics instead of aiming exclusively at drooling pubescent boys. :/

I think griffins fit thematically. Plus they were moved to the knight town in Heroes III, which is absolutely perfect and can do no wrong, right? Right?!! </sarcasm> Mages have an Arabic influence, so no, I don't think griffins fit them. Griffins are best known for being a heraldic symbol in medieva...

Regeneration and Heal are both available at level 1, in Earth and Light magic respectively. They greatly help at avoiding losses.

What's with all the Nival hate? If anything, compared to VI, the reception of V here on CH was warm in comparison.

Inferno 1: Am I missing something obvious? (Spoilers)

After sucessfully playing through the tutorial and the first missions of Stronghold, Sanctuary and Haven on Normal, I've decided to give this mission a shot. I've added maniacs and hell hounds, built all available upgrades in two of the easily obtainable towns, and quickly captured the Legions of Pa...

Corlagon, regarding the order you posted, I suspect Haven 1 takes place before Inferno 1 after all, not after. Since in it Kiril is still in the Empire alongside Anton.

If we're thinking of the same thing, once you finish a campaign you unlock the possibility to replay it with a custom hero (it only needs to be the same gender as the original character). Didn't require finishing the campaign to me. At least, I was able to start Irina's campaign with a different he...

I don't understand the general ire this community has for HoMMV though. I felt that it was as close to HoMMIII greatness as any of the others. I think it's the residual bitterness from the rough and unpolished state in which V was originally released, and it took several patches and two expansions ...

Chronological order of missions? (spoilers)

I must admit, I was very confused by the campaigns in the beta, back when the prologue and the Sanctuary campaign were the only ones available. I think it's really weird storytelling with the narration scattered over five campaigns like that, and I'd like to play the missions in chronological order....

I have found no such thread for Heroes VI. Perhaps we should start one?

Here is one I noticed: on my computer, the cursor flickers when moving. This may be a regression, because I noticed no such thing in the beta. I played the beta on a different computer, though.
