Tips
Pixies are the weakest 1st level unit statistically, but they rely on 'strength in numbers' to win battles. Get the Pixie/Sprite horde building right away to get the full value out of these cheap, but plentiful, units.
'No Retaliation' and a significant Speed increase make Sprites much more valuable than Pixies. They won't last long in the heat of battle, so keep them outside and have them jump in for a good attack when the oppurtunity arises.

Tips
Air Elementals, compared to other level 2 units, have high Attack, high Defense, and just about high everything, including Cost. A wide Damage range and good Speed makes them valuable on the field early on in most adventures. Use the Air Elemental to tank instead of Pixies early on in a game before you get the upgrade.
As if Air Elementals were not strong enough, Storm Elementals unleash high damage from long range. They also tend to unleash high prices for your treasury, though, but having a shooter that can take it and dish it is well worth it.

Tips
Water Elementals pose yet another threat from the Conflux with very high Defense and exceptional Damage. Water Elementals are also able to take a good amount of damage before perishing, so, as with the Air Elementals, use them to tank in the time period before you get the upgrade.
The Ice Elemental's ability to shoot enemies from a distance adds extra cost onto the Water Elemental's initial costly price. Other than that, this upgrade does little stat-wise. Don't bother defending them too heavily; they can stand on their own in a rough spot most of the time.

Tips
Upgrade Value = Important
Tips
Fire Elementals are similar to Swordsmen in almost every aspect, but they are slightly faster and deal less Damage. Fire Elementals have less Defense than most other level 4 units, so be careful how you use them in big battles.
Energy Elementals are a good bit faster and stronger than Fire Elementals, but their defensive capabilties remain the same. One bonus is that Energy Elementals can fly, making it easier to traverse the battlefield. Use them the same way as you would Fire Elementals, because they are still prone to being defeated easily occasionally when fighting stronger foes.

Tips
Upgrade Value = Important
Tips
Earth Elementals have less-than desirable stats, but they dedicate themselves to their defensive skills. They have average Defense and good Health, but because of their low Damage I suggest they stay far back and shield ranged allies like the Storm or Ice Elementals instead of arriving at the battle too late.
An all-around increase in stats qualifies the Magma Elemental for effective melee. The best increase is in their Damage, which is essential in warding off attackers. With this upgrade, the choice is yours for whether you want them to defend allies or rush into your enemies, making them very versatile units.

Tips
Upgrade Value = Optional but Useful
Tips
Psychic Elementals have poor Health and low Defense, but their immunity to Mind spells is very useful. These guys can hit every unit around them at once, so use those Teleport and Counterstrike spells to maximize their unlimited potential. Be careful, you may need to Teleport them out of danger too, because they still cannot match other level 6 units such as the Cavalier or Black Knight.
Magic Elementals are immune to all forms of magic and magical effects, so that means the Teleport spell won't be helping you any more. Besides that inconvienience, better Health, Speed, and Damage grant the Magic Elemental a much stronger presence on the battlefield. Use their farther movement to get in a few free shots before enemies start to approach your ranged allies.

Immune to all Fire School spells - Flying - Rebirth: A fraction of the total number of Phoenixes will be resurrected when the stack is destroyed once per battle; exact formula is 20% chance per Phoenix of reviving one Phoenix; ex. 1 Phoenix grants a 20% chance to have 1 Phoenix revived, 4 Phoenixes grants an 80% chance to have one Phoenix revived, 5 Phoenixes automatically revives one Phoenix, 7 Phoenixes automatically brings one back to life with a 40% chance of reviving a 2nd - Breath Attack

Tips
The magnificent Firebird has rather weak stats for a level 7, but it still does good Damage to most enemies. All Firebirds are immune to fire spells and effects, which protects them from some of the strongest spells in the game! Aside from those facts, Firebirds, on their own, are faster than almost any other creature. The Speed and far movement make them good for destroying enemy ranged units with ease.
Phoenixes are THE fastest unit in Heroes 3. A good improvement to a few stats make Phoenixes much better than Firebirds for dealing with opposing units. Phoenixes can revive some of themselves when a stack dies with their special Rebirth ability, and they are still great at eliminating enemy ranged attackers or weaker melee units like its predecessor.

1 per week
Tips
The Sacred Phoenix is still the fastest unit in Heroes III, but some handy new feats separate itself from its regular cousin. Sacred Phoenixes have relatively low stats, but good Damage and low Cost. A Fire Shield protects the Sacred Phoenix by damaging attackers, and Immunity to Fire protects it from enemy Fire Shields. Sacred Phoenixes always perform better against level 7 and 8 units because of their Slayer skill, so this combination of abilities calls for a different strategy when using the Sacred Phoenix. Regular Phoenixes require a good bit of caution because of their lower stats; they cannot get too deep in the fray or they will be ground to ashes in seconds. Sacred Phoenixes, however, can hold off enemies better and deal more damage overall, so they invite a more relaxed play experience. If you happen to lose a stack of them, don't despair, their 'Improved Rebirth' ability brings more back to life than regular Phoenixes. (Note that the Sacred Phoenix is only available in the Wake of Gods add-on to Heroes III)
