So what do u you think is the best damage spell in the game?

Personally i have always favored chain lightning, i know that imploslosion has show to do more more damage to one stack, but later in the game when you heroe's power rateing goes up, chain lighning is the best spell in the game! or so i think

Well... Implosion and Chain Lightning, good when starting in combat, while implosion is really effective in eliminating huge stacks of creatures. But nothing compares to Armagedon with Armagedon's Blade!

I have to vote for meteor shower. This spell will discourage your opponent from ganging on your units, so they will have to suffere retaliations, or a huge spell damage.

Implosion.
Chain is just for 1st round(s) without the anti-chain pendant, and if opponent has that your chain is worthless. There is no pendant against implo.. ist precice.. and if you have 20 spellpower it does at least 1500 damage without eath magic mastery. Meteor only does stupid 600 damage with 20 spellpower.

Gimme implo, you get chain. Lets rock =)

hehe bjorn,

if I hit 2, 3 or even 4 units with one shower the damage will be more than implosion lol. You will think twice before ganging up on my troops. If I have one unit that I want to protect from implosion (AD is a prime example) I will cast antimagic on it . Also, one resisted implosion may mean game over for you. Finnaly implosion is not exactly cheap you know

Chain Lighting OR Meteor Shower.  Love them both, especially with Solmyr or Deemer.

Implosion -
good stuff: Sky high dmg to one stack, can often kill a whole stack.
Bad stuff: Only strikes one unit.

Chain Light -
Good stuff: Strikes 4+ units and gives a high dmg.
Bad stuff: Pendant of negativity, Can(should) only be used before opponents troops gets to close since it can strike own units.

Meteor Shower -
Good stuff: Hits a certain area which can be filled with enemy units if they are for example protecting shooters.
Bad Stuff: Hits a certain area which sometimes only mean that one unit can be striked.

Conclusion: Magic arrow rocks

By the time you have enough spellpower for those spells to matter alot, you often have enough spellpoints to last an entire fight of implosion.

And you need to hit 3 units to hurt them as much as 1 implosion, and that is rare. Also, if you cast antimagic on your archdevils I will implode your sultans =D

I still chose implosion. =P

I pick... *drumroll*... MAGIC ARROW!
Actually, if I have some negativity going on, chain lightning just r0x0rz.  But in normal circumstances, I think Meteor shower beats out Implosion, because you don't have as much overkill and there's more spread.  Of course, cram them all in one spell book and I'm happy.

Well me personaly i think that chain lightning is the most powerfull spell when you have about 20 spell power.
other spells like implosion and armmageddon are good also ,but they also have thier week points e.g. implosion affects one creature stack where as armmageddon affects all creatures including allied creatures. where as chain lightning inflicts massive damage on 5 enemy creatures.

Yeah i can see how some would think meteor shower would be a great spell, i know the cons of implosion, but just think of the mana you save from casting chain over implosion that you might need to counter the other player in battle, for example when your army is substancially weaker than  his but you magic is higher, would you want to destroy one stack or four a couple of time and take out more creatures doing so....... and yes one the days magic arrow will become the ultimate damage spell!

This subject (as all the others) depends on the situation:

If I want to eliminate his strongest units - Implosion rocks the world.
If I want to kill some weaker units, that are in a couple of stacks - Chain Lightning at the beginning, then Shower.

Well, of course Implosion is great but you still need to find it somewhere. This may be no problem in mid-game and later but take Solmyr/Deemer and you receive CL/MS instantly. They take a lot of mana yes, but with Deemer it is not a problem (Mana Vortex in his town) and as for Solmyr... try to learn Intelligence and Mysticism and get as much Knowledge as you can... By the way Solmyr is my second favourite hero..

Armageddon with Efreet Sultans or Phoenixes. What good is Implosion or Chain Lightning if someone casts expert armageddon on your troops?
