Re: Order of the day: up to the alliance

I think that one hero, alone, no matter how strong, should not be able to take out 100 hydra by himself (and yes, I did this, although it may only have been 80 - there were 4 stacks of between 20 and 30 each; 100 is the average) Wait till you get Poison spell - L2 Necromancers rule the game :-) The...

Re: Order of the day (Order map 1)

But it wastes one of your turns in combat, potions don't. Divine Intervention is more useful imo. Still a better-spent resource than five level upgrades wasted on Resurrection, whose only purpose is to recover one half of creatures that died because you didn't invest those same five level ups into ...

I bet that there are still many of those who don't know that they can change the names of heroes in taverns :)

I never said that. I said a dismissed hero doesn't count, a hero in sanctuary doesn't count and possibly hero in a mine doesn't count.

Re: No update yet...

However, this does pose the question: which hero is considered strongest in H4? Highest level? highest stats? most skills? most advanced class? Depends on who does the considering, the map, the purpose of the hero etc. The game only considers level. However, should I dismiss extra heroes (if possib...

Re: The true blade

2. What is to be done to get the heroes to the maximum level allowed? Use the available enhancers wisely (I don't quite recall if there are any Trees of Knowledge in the first scenario, but if they are, don't use them before you are at level (18-number of trees)). I've never found one in the first ...

Good idea about skipping the Chaos town and heading straight for the barbarian town. I guess I hadn't thought of doing that because I expected that town to be too strong for my starting army. The same trick applies to the Winds of War Barbarian campaign. (and no access to lvl 3 troops in the first ...

You did? However did you conquer the first town? My sad little array of pirates and rogues, as well as two weakling heroes, was quickly trodden down into the dirt by a strong defense of minotaurs, orcs and rogues. That's quite easy! Just skip the neutral town and go directly for the opponent's Barb...

In the semi-highest i sometimes get through, sometimes not, in the highest difficulty level never. Although of course it would be possible to wait some time to accumulate enough moncs and c...

Nightmares won't cast Terror on Proetho because Proetho has GM Resistance, and even if he doesn't, he is hidden behind the Efreeti so the Nightmares don't have a line-of-sight on him. Huh? Where do you get efreeti from? (You could block line of sight with a few of the recruitable creatures on the m...

Well, i think, it would be possible to beat those stacks. But you need much potion of immortality and luck. Not really. You just need a good tactics. For example, you can simply keep shooting them while Proetho keeps them neutralized with a Song of Peace. The effreeti attack and kill Lysander. Lysa...

I started several campaigns but never get interested enough to continue. On the other hand custom maps are ideal choice. These got me :D The campaigns (all supplied maps, in fact) are pretty poor from gameplay point of view, but the campaigns in the basic game have excellent storylines. I just love...

Re: The true blade

There is no potion of imortality in that scenario, Yes, there is. Keep restarting the scenario until the Blacksmith gives you a PoI instead of a less useful potion... and i got there several stacks of water elementals of which each of them killed a hero right away in the first strike, each of them ...

Over time those stacks grow. Does such a grown stack give more XP? Yes, of course, At a given difficulty, each creature gives you a fixed amount of experience points. If a stack grows, so does the experience gained. Which is why My Brother's Keeper is so much more difficult on Advanced difficulty t...

Re: The true blade

1. For what purpose is the purple keymaster tent found behind the quest quard which lets only Lysander and Proetho together pass? To force the player to play the scenario in a given order - first defeat the Venom Spawn, then release Proetho, then continue with other quests. 2. What is to be done to...

And I seriously can't understand how you can like the HIV graphics better then those of Heroes II, III or V. It's completely mindboggling. Could it be that I have different preferences than you do? Am I a sicko or what? Since you like heroes in combat I suppose you're a fan of the M&M series an...

The graphics was ugly and the first thing I thought of when I saw it was 'plastic toy'. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I liked H4 graphics more than any other Heroes'. The animations was laughably bad which worsened the combat. Couldn't care less, really. I grew up on games where "animation"...

AFAIK Halberd of the Swiftwatch and Hideous Mask each grant you the bonus an Amulet of Fear gives, so AoF seems a waste of a slot to me.
