Unusual or overlooked spell strategy...

This topic is about the ways to use spells creatively.  I know alot of you have great combos.

I love the frenzy/ harpy hag combo, this can be the most annoyingly devastating spell/creature combo that is easy to play.

Probably this is sometimes overlooked or forgotten, but you can dispell the tower castle mines with expert dispell.

a toh captain did this to me once...

i thought i had his main hero beat bcuz i cast beserk on a very powerful creature stack (i forgot what it was) and it was going to massacre his other good creature stack, which wouldve won it for me.  then he cast clone on the beserked stack, so the beserked stack attacked its own clone...

A friend told me that if I have a powerful Implosion and someone attacks my castle with a mighty army, but consisting only of walkers, I must cast Implosion on the Catapult and voila! They won't be able to pass through the castle walls...
But my friend missed something - the Catapult is immune to Implosion! So you have to use a Lightning Bolt but that means that you must have a great spellcaster - otherwise you won't destroy the Catapult at once.

You can blind a catapult?

Dispel mines on the tower siege?

Is this for Sod or does it affect Roe and AB?

Anti-Magic

I played a ToH game versus Shane (wonderful person, btw) last season and learned a new trick the hard way.  As I remember, he had an Inferno.  After he had cast his spell in the first round, I cast Blind on his ArchDevils.  I thought this would give me the upper hand.  His next spell was expert Anti-Magic, and he used it on his ArchDevils.  No more Blind, no more magic against them at all.  I had never seen this before, so although I got my butt royally beaten, I learned something new and useful.  Time well spent!

Another favorite of mine is using Dragonflies on Magic Plains.  Just can't beat the mass effect they have

No...unfortunately, if you have certain spells like meteor shower, slow, or implosion then there is very little reason to use most of the other spells unless you are simply messing around.

WHAT A **** ?

I've had a match yesterday in RoE on a single player map in a Internet Caffe...One of the kids asked me "Why don't you cast two spells per round?" and I reply "Well that's not possible"; and he said "Let me show you..."; Watch this:
1. During the battle at the beginning of your round (when you want to cast a spell) press "C" key and keep it down while with the cursor you click on your hero to activate the magic book;
2. Your magic book opens and you cast a spell; now the interesting part...
3. After your spell has been casted your magic book appears opend and you can cast the second spell in the same round...

How can that be?
Please can somebody give me an answer ?
Had someone incounter this ?

Mikael...

Were you using version 1.0 or 1.4?  There have been a fair amount of bugs and other stuff that have been moderated to ensure a fairer play.  I assume since you were in a cafe that it was 1.0, but I'd still like to know...

Gimmickless...

I am not sure which exactly version it was but I am sure it was an earlier one...Anyway I asked in IM lots of members and some said that the trick still works in their version of HOMM 3 icluding AB and SoD.What I was upset about it is that in that I Caffe those guys were using it on a large scale...Is not a fair thing, you know, 2 spells/round...

2 spells a round

This bug was fixed with the 1.4 version of heroes, It was used by a lot of cheating players with the 1.3 version of ROE and I think it was used in AB for version 2.1 (current 2.2  and 1.4 versions do not support it) and I think it never worked for SOD

hmmm perhaps you'll ready know this one ... I just encountered it yesterday when fighting of a few legions a Azure Dragons in the Eternal Love Campaign.

First I sqwasssssed a few legions a Crystal and Rust Dragons with blind and ressurect. With 2.000 spellpoints who's counting....!

Azure Dragons are immune to blind ,,, grrr... So after clone my MG a dozen times I cloned my AA too. ANd to my surprise every clone of the AA could resurrect (since I had about 250 AA). This realy saved my a** since the kept on attacking the clone I dind't loose a single creature in those battles!

Is this a bug or just a nice glitch?

sorry, maybe I'm stupid.. but wouldn't a simple cure / dispel have done the trick as well?

misc.

exp water magic and clone with Archangels is very powerful, I dont think it's a bug in any way tho.

I had an interesting experience where my opponent had the black orb and bezerked my gold dragons , I thoought I was going to be very smart so next turn I cast Exp. Cure That daym black orb is strange tho, and my poor gold dragons were still bezerked
