necromancy

Hi,
I'm reading about some of you guys getting huge amounts of skellies in week 3... (800+). I dunno, but on impossible, how does one do that? Have I missed something? When you fight at the beginning of a game, you only have basic necro and also you only fight lots or packs... it just doesn't add up.
Please explain,
Thanks

Well, I've never had that many, but there are ways to get big amounts. I would think the best way to get skellies would be to get Diplomacy (if possible), get wild monsters to join, then chain them back to town to be transformed. Also, if you build a Nec Amp right away, your basic percentage gets up to 20%. And fighting wild monsters can put you up the levels needed for Adv and Exp Necromancy.

There again comes the "chaining" as an important part of the game. When u play with necropolis, your starting hero adn at least 1 of the 2 tavern heroes have the necromancy skill. When u r lucky, u find a 3rd Necro-Hero in tavern. So u have 3 heroes who can gather skellies after a fight. So fight with one of them, chain his army to the next (directly or via another scout), fight with him some battles and chain the troops to the 3rd. Build the Amplifier as soon as possible, and when u get level ups, try to get expert necromancy as soon as possible. Also try to avoid fights against bigger stacks of level1 and level 2 units until u have expert necromancy + amplifier, which means 40% Necro skill.
The 2 best heroes for Necropolis are Isra and Galthran in my eyes.

If u want to know more about the necromancy-skill, read here: How does the necromancy skill work exactly?

No, i didnīt forget her, but the 2 other heroes are "might" heroes and Vidomina is a "magic" hero, thatīs why i prefer the 2 other ones..

Enough to say that necro is banned on most random templates for a reason

With a excesive "necro work" you can have maybe 500 - 1000 skellies in two weeks...

you need to convert all creatures dwellings into skellies, and fight with all creatures in the map, sure use a necro hero, and if you get diplomacy with this guy LOL,

The size is not that important...what u need is a rich template and the monsters set on "strong", so even your wood and ore mine are guarded...more enemies..more skellies..

I find the ToH maps to be possible to do this, but on a random map... I dunno. What I meant by a large map was one where you are not cramped up on the other guy like a recent medium map I played. If the land of the other guy is just beside you, it's hard to get alot of skellies!

sounds like crap to me, you can do this to the computer, not to a real player, not even to a n00b like me
