Ooh, that explains it. See I thought that creature was just worthless, but it's a bug apparently. Lol.

Antagarich is to the north of Enroth and probably relatively close by. You still haven't played the Might and Magic games, I presume? In MM8 King Roland and Queen Catherine arrive in Jadame, on route from Antagarich to Enroth. Jadame has to be at least somewhat in between the two for that to make s...

Maybe I can articulate my words a bit better. 1. I don't mind 3D. But it also isn't a must for me, especially not in a strategy game. Do people complain that a unit in Risk is just a piece of plastic? I don't. -- As long as being in 3D doesn't hurt a game too much, then it's an improvement. Otherwis...

To be honest, I still think the art in Heroes 3 is the best in the series (although Heroes 2 beats it in some accounts - the Phoenix, Crusader and Dragons look great in HoMM2). Plus the 3D in the newer games just gets in the way of gameplay. And I'm 24 years old. That may make me a "sort of&quo...

Shadow Comb - 1 Puppet Master per battle, useful for heroes who can't cast dark magic. Against the toughest optional battles this is the best shot - but PM frequently crashes the game. ;| I agree with this one. I played a game against my brother and attacked him in his town. His army had so many su...

I think it's easier to just read them as Blood=Offensive and Tears=Defensive. For example, any damaging spells or skills, as well as offensive/proactive manouvers such as the Rush ability are associated with Blood reputation. Using these skills as well as generally being aggressive in adventure map ...

Looking at it from a non-gameplay point of view, I can definately see how an army without a tactically inclined commander would be disorganised in every battle. Imagine an Orc army for instance, who just walk up to an enemy without any for-thought and just start attacking. Or when you get ambushed o...

Ha-ha. Expect the guys that exploited this to be banned from Ubi servers now. :P That would just be dumb. The way I see it, the Dynasty stuff is mostly meant for singleplayer (the campaign in particular). Using it in multiplayer could give someone an unfair advantage, and it's just not how a Heroes...

Go to "My Dynasty" in the main menu, then select the second tab. You can make your heroes there, and all the skills you select from them will be what they use in duel mode.

As far as I'm aware, you can't setup your own armies though.

I don't know what you guys are talking about with starting over to beat the last battle, but every time there's just one castle left for the opponent in the campaigns I found I could simply wait a few weeks to get a bigger army before attacking him. When you have like 5+ castles and he has only one,...

I can't connect right now either. I can play, but I can't access my saved games, campaign progress, custom heroes, dynasty rewards, etc. etc. So basically, yeah you can play but you're still better off waiting for it to come back up.......

If we are only talking about late game OP stuff only, then I'd take an archer with lvl 60 bow and hire a fallen wizard. But there are no items that add to your Bow skill, and armsmaster doesn't effect bow weapons, so you have to spend a lot more skill points to get the bow to a point where it can d...

Would you guys say it might be a good idea to cast rush/life drain on Ghouls the first turn and move them into the enemy ranks? Their damage reduction and increased damage against living targets seems to make them the unit of choice for an early assault. Then move in your lamasu's and vampires when ...

I get most of my games through Steam nowadays, or by buying a game on Xbox marketplace. Rarely do I still go to a store (I did for HoMM6 obviously). On one hand, it's convenient. On the other, it's kind of a shame. I miss the ritual of going to a store with my friends to pick up a new game and read ...

Well, gameplay-wise the most notable thing about Stronghold in HoMM 3 (aside from Arma-Dragon tactics) was that you didn't need to protect your shooters. The Medusa was always too dangerous to take out in melee, the Eyes had plenty of hit-points and no melee penalty, and the harpies were well.. harp...

When I played my solo Ranger (albeit with leveling), I simply ran past everything in the Lincoln. All the instant-death effects in that place were just too much for me to take the enemies head-on.
