It sounds very strange that warlords ring and ring of protection should only give +20% IF the hero has tactics..? I do believe it stacks upon offense/defense giving additional +20% or if none of those skills, just +20%. Atleast that's what I recall people have determined earlier I did few test (fir...

The Barbarian Throwing Club should be higher, because stun is very useful. I'd probably also put the regular Crossbow above the Longbow, because it gives the Long Range ability (not complete range penalty removal, but nearly so). I'd also put the Nomad Blackbow below the Bow of the Elf King, becaus...

I think Centaurs Spear might Be better than Snipers Crossbow, as the spear removes all melee penalty for troops, and the crossbow gives No ranged penalty to the hero (if I remember correct) Sniper's Crossbow remove all range penalty (H4) for heroes and creatures and all ranged and obstacle penalty ...

For ranged weapon, some are good if there is ranged creature, but totaly useless if there is no ranged creatures in the troop. For that reason, I think we should look at 2 things: 1- Is there any ranged creature in the troop (If total number of Titan or Monk or Cyclopes or ...... > 0, then set vRang...

This thread is about ideas to tweak the AI / make things more difficult / interesting. I agree. Regarding your idea of giving different set according to difficulty, I think it's a good idea, but we will need to remove those set when the heroes are defeat, and give them back if they go out of prison...

Regarding artifact (iLiVeInAbOx05 suggestion) and all other way to change the difficulty, I got few good ideas. There is a lot of different thing we can do for difficulty. Let's finish the artifact priority discussion for AI first, then we could talk about difficulty. I'm a little bit busy right now...

Hi guys, I did some test with Neckalce of Charm, Statesman's Medal and Ankh of Life and I did found something interresting: If the hero has Neckalce of Charm or Statesman's Medal equip before combat, you can get creature even if you put an other neckalce on an encounter script. it Means that charm/D...

Yeap, you're missing the fact that Mind shield makes friendly troops immune to all mind spells, not all hostile mind spells, thus it makes blesses (= entirety of Life Magic) completely useless. I did some test (with 90% of all spell), and the only spell that I can't cast on my troop was: 1- Bloodlu...

Yet, for another counterexample, if you get positive morale, are slower than the enemy, and next turn you don't get positive morale, the enemy moves twice on you. Also, shooting early usually means with worse accuracy than after the enemies have already moved. ...but if the computer is slower on tu...

Hi guys! The list for Boots look OK. For helmet: Mind shield(all mind spell, including blind) is better than Helm of seeing (only blind spell), (or maybe I'm missing something....) For set item (Tiger helm) I really think we should look if the set is complete. Tiger set is really good. Imagine the h...

The hero will have 1 - (1-0.5)*(1-0.7) = 0.85, or 85% Magic Resistance.


You are right. I thought it was additive, but no..... it's multiplicative.... so the only way to get 100% MR is invulnerable cloak or Grandmaster magic resistance....

I had no time for luck/moral test last night..... Regarding combat of computer vs neutral, I think it's better to remove a % of creatures from the neutral instead of giving creatures to the computer and then remove some creatures. Regarding the artifact list: After you remove all artifact from the h...

Is the script placed on the neutral or the computer? I did some test with both, test on neutral and computer and nothing works... I will try with att/def, but I want to do some more test first with luck/moral because sometime, the computer fight without heroes in his troop. Regarding the artifact s...

2) Decreasing of luck and morale doesn't affect a quick combat, so I still prefer giving creatures at time of battle. I did some test about decreasing/increasing luck and moral. In one of my map, I use these kind of script, but I change the owner of the neutral for red player (me), so I control the...
