Best Neutral Creature...

What creature from the neutrals do you fancy?

I believe that the rogues are the by far the most useful neutral creature.  (*gasp* what about Azure dragons?)  I would rather have a group of rogues with me than any other neutral.  Sure the big dragons are sexy, but really how often can you really get them and they are a little overpriced.  I know all you necromancers just love the peasants.  But have you ever used the rogues?  Their special kicks butt!  They tell you exactly how many creatures you are facing and weather or not they will flee, attack, or join you.  Talk about tactical advantage, these guys give you that extra kick that every general needs - reliable intelligence.

MY OPINION

Yep , Rouges are very cool but ,if u have visions(not so hard to get), their special abillity is kind of useless.
Neutral creatures that I like much are Enchanters(they look cool and cast a mass spell, pretty useful) and Faerie Dragons ( if u get them they can really distrupt the enemy plans).

The other dragons are very good also but u get them more seldom than Faerie Dragons (much more seldom)

Hard choice...

Enchanters are good.
Sharpshooter are good.
Dragons are evil.

Very hard to choice. But I still see my friend facing 5 azure dragons and getting his rear end kicked. So I go for Azures...if you face them in battle I mean...

But as for myself I would take rogues. All those neutrals cost too much and are hard to get in numbers but it doesn't mean nothing when considering rogues which specialty is very important if don't have the spell...

Most useful neutral: Rogue (ya, best scout troop nominee, though speed is a bit slow for a scout)

My fav: fairy dragon (just too cute to kill )

Sharpshooter(lv4?) and enchanter(lv5?)
are deadly shooters and will be top creatures if they are put into the pool of their level.

Nomad: average, but can be great in sand terrain.

Halfling and peasant: great...............for necromancy.

Sharpshooters are my fav. neutral creatures. The only problem I have with them (as all neutral creatures), is that the creatures growth is way too slow, unless you have 2 or 3 creature dwellings from the same species...
But on the other hand, this makes it more interesting, huh?

I must say Sharpshooters rock, and I have had lots of fun with them in custom maps and things . I also like Enchanters a lot as well with their beneficial spell casting and things.

I personally hope there will be. Trolls are pretty good creatures, and if they were to appear in H4, they will be a neutral, since the Stronghold castlelineup (like all the castles) has been decided.
Trolls are a vital part of the Heroes series, just like Crag Hack and Sandro are.

We have seen artworks of trolls in the homm4 previews, so they will be there...

And for my favourite neutral creature... ...right now it has to be sharpshooters!

Sharpshooter.  They're simply awesome shooters.  They make Gelu the best hero in the game.  They're simply amazing.

I vote for Sharpshooters, they are really great shooters and the proof is the first gelu mission in the Armaggedons Blade campaign.

Halfings!

Firstly, they are just cool, and secondly- they are free! halfing holes I love, some other units free also, but no other ranged.

Hmm...I see...

Direct quote from Ichon...

Bit off topic yes.

But I think the thing how much you value neutrals is what kind of map you are playing. In some maps you cannot get really even decent amount of neutral creatures which leads to that example I happen to like rogues more just because their specialty work how many there are of them. I think if we would put those creatures into towns and use them more we would find different units to be better than we do now. Maybe it's the same with other creatures. I mean we start using some units more than others and start thinking that they are better than those that we don't use so much or not find they be so appealing.
People are using so different kind of tactics and ways to play the game that it is hard to say really which is best unit. I think that is what is best with HoMM. Different ways to play the game. But I wait even more to HoMMIV have creatures that we cannot agree on each level which is "best" as we seem to do in some. But instead we would find all useful and also tempting to say they all are best cannot pick one. At least for me this isn't the case in some levels. Vampire Lords with their specialty clearly can be picked from those other fourth level units also same goes to fifth level units and mighty Gorgons.
But it's pity if we find that units like Vampires are taken from the game just because their specialty is really special not any rip off.

The AB Neutral dragons are the best,but hard to come by.I must say that the Sharpshooter is not better than the Enchanter.Of course,if you have them,they'll both need protection.They're both deadly,but the Enchanter combines the Might of the range attack with the Magic of Mass Spellcasting.Also,I like those blue robes they wear.

Very hard to choose, seeing as Enchanters can give your entire army just about any Blessing / Curse your enemies. Sharpshooters become useless with a Golden Bow (I think that's the no range penalty one, haven't played in some time) except for their awesome offensive power.

I'd go with dragons, ALWAYS!, but yoiu guys know I'm a sucker for scaly things that breathe scorching flames. I know, it's sick, but I love 'em. Azures, teh pwn. Really. That's an experienced player talking here! That's what I tell myself, at least...

In short, Azures, if you have the cizash. Enchanters otherwise.
