Ranger mage guilds never get dark magic spells? Are there other mage guilds which have similar limitations? Every town is, as you probably know, associated with two spell schools. This means that for every level in the guild, there'll be at least one spell from those schools. Sylvan is Destructive ...

yeah it says european collector so i guess that means i use the european version then. is there a patch for that one? No, they decided only the american fans are worth helping with a patch. We're out of luck. Well, that's funny, cuz Americans are the ones who got the aptly-named "Limited Edition".....

Playing Hotseat on Heroic, with 2 or 3 people... I've had ai which just sat in it's base area on Warlords, never getting as far as it's garrison or mines.

Zoltan's skills may be bad but I would have been very glad for his special to block Ressurection and Raise dead on ANY of the campains on heroic difficulty. I just wish Zoltan got Scholar instead of Arcane Intuition to be honest. (getting Arcane means Zoltan can't ever get Banshee Howl, he misses ou...

There is a bug where Dynamic battle gets turned on, I've had it several times. In campains and scenarios. I think it's a keybind bug with the spacebar, becuase I'll use it to defend and then for no reason one time the timer will start for a turn, and it'll stay on until I use spacebar to defend agai...

The only problem with Imbue arrow is that one of the other two skills (deadeye or rain of arrows) should be a prerequisite as its a useless skill priar to getting one of those as well.

How bloody hard would it be to put it in? That's why I voted the last one. Guess we should be glad the creatures don't all have the same skin. I mean it wouldn't really affect gameplay, would it.

Dismiss all of Isabel's army at the start except for 1 creature. Godric can't take her last creature, leave her in the haven town for the whole game and ignore her.

First of all, the inability to resurrect the unicorns comes from a bug where corpses get removed if someone stands on them. (they reappear but are no longer targetable when the spot is cleared). It's not an ai cheat, and can be used to stop them resurrecting too. Nur has a speciality where she gets ...

There's a great deal of cost associated with putting out a patch. It's much more cost effective to have one large patch than two or more smaller patches.
