Don't forget about the Dwarves - they have 3 Fire-immune units (one of Rune Priest upgrades, one of Thane upgrades and their Dragons), 3 units that don't lose armor to Master of Fire even though taking damage from Fire spells, rune of Elemental Immunity that gives Fire immunity 50% of the time plus...

My list would have to be, in order of best to least: 1. Puppet Master (kill your enemy with your enemy.. No retaliation.. Cast it on an treant and the enemy's other creature can't escape, effectively taking out two enemy creatures with one spell - then cast Frenzy on the creature stuck with the trea...

Some Questions

Hi all :) Got some questions here.. 1. Shield of Crystal Ice grants 50% fire protection. If I got it right, that means your creature has a 50% chance to fully resist fire magic every time, right? Fire Resistance perk from Light Magic give 50% fire resistance. If you have both of these, does that mea...

Could someone post a list of abilities that benefit from Soldier's Luck? I usually can never think of any of those abilities everytime I get the skill offered to me, and thus never take it :/

So, to recap.. Needed - 2 vampires - Raise Dead - Small army to take the heat (quite literally, if it's dragons you're facing) - Last Stand Useful - Mass Slow (normal Slow is too dangerous, Haste won't help) - (Mass) Endurance (so your army will last long enough) - Sorcery (so you can Raise Dead fas...

Counterspell does not work with sorcery, on the other hand an opponent with sorcery and armageddon will cast before you can counterspell again ;) Not to mention that caster units can end counterspell too. Ah, I didn't know that. Still, I've tested with a full sorcery/Destruction hero against one wi...

Most of us see that Slow seems to work out better than Haste, but I bet most of you never sit down to figure out why. The reason is, Slow is numerically superior. The progression for Slow is 25%/30%/35%/40%. For Haste, it's 10%/20%/30%/40%. Numerically, 25% slow is equivalent to 33% haste. Similarl...

After carefully reading alot of threads in which this so-called "blizzardboy" preaches his hatred of 30 year old Russians, I stumbled upon an epiphany (sp?): the guy's simply hilarious :D Anyway, where's the "I dunno, it'll probably be a solid game, though it won't really stand out&qu...

I think there's only 4 strategies to beat Armageddon and Magnetic Golems if you are evenly matched.. From best to least: 1. If you're Dungeon, make an army of only Black Dragons. Armageddon will then only be useful in resurrecting the Magnetic Golems, but they don't stand a chance against Dragons. 2...

I think all these creatures can be useful in their own right. Conscript/Brute, I don't know about, because I'd rather never upgrade that dwelling until the very end, making money off the peasants. But I suppose the unupgraded creature can be factored in as well. Familiar/Vermin, well I think the Fam...
