Few Interesting FAQs about HoMM3

Hmmm here's a few facts I know that may be of some use to some on the new HC n00bs :

1. Did you know...Any heroes with the armour secondary skill take double damage from any type of castle's towers during a seige?

2. Did you know...Badge of courage prevents all mind spells?

3. Did you know...Dragons cant be petrified by Medusas and Basilisks, or blinded by Unicorns, but that they can be paralyzed by Scorpicores and aged by Ghost Dragons?

4.Did you know...Black Dragons and Gold Dragons can only be targeted by 1 level 1-4 spell...thats Dispel?

5. Did you know...Gold Dragons can be target by the Sacrifice part of sacrifice, but not by the Resurrect part?

6. Did you know...Champions dont get their 5% damage bonus per hex they moved vs Pikemen and halberdiers?

7. Did you know...Gargoyles cant be resurrected because they are "not living", but strangly they can get morale, unlike Golems?

8. Did you know...Legion artifacts only gives one bonus per hero, but if you split it into two heroes (visiting + garrison) you can have bonuses for both?

9. Did you know...cloned Archangels can resurrect allies too?

10. Did you know...cloned creatures get affected by artifacts?

11. Did you know...Serpent / Dragon Flies dispel anti-magic?

12. Did you know...All Dragons and Hydras become Bone Dragons in the Skeleton Transformer?

13. Did you know...Dispel doesn't target the creature? It targets the spell on the creature

Well that's about what I got...some of these maybe wrong but not to my knowledge.... Enjoy

No way, man.

Why would anyone want to turn a good dragon into a crappy ol' Bone Dragon anyhow?

More interesting stuff!

Have you ever had the problem that you were fighting against green or red dragons, which were parted in 3 or more stacks, that youīre sad about the circumstance you donīt have time to resurrect your lost armies because you couldnīt blind or hypnotize the dragons?

Here is the solution:

First of all you have to be expert in fire magic, second you must be able to spell "berserk".

Now you have to cast berserk on the dragons.
If there are no more than 2 stacks of dragons left on the battlefield and there are more than 2 hexfields between these dragons, the dragons will not attack each other, but will stay and raise their defensive skill. The "berserk"-spell will not be lost after that, so you can resurrect your lost armies and after that take the dragons to a BBQ.

Hope i could help a little bit

Ok, let's say you own a powerful necro only army and a free slot. A group of let's say... 5 red dragons joins you. Compared to your 30 boners, they are useless and could die after some heavier battles if you don't protect them. Turning them to boners makes them less vulnerable because they are part of the whomper stack.

We, the Necromancers, cannot expect everyone to understand the power of the skeleton transformer. As you put it, 35 Ghost Dragons are much better than 30 Ghost and 5 Red ones.

Alas, don't be greedy! Last week I managed to have 52,000 skeletons on XL map, month 12. With a number of different towns and expert town portal I created an unbeatable army in one single day. Sadly, I didn't know the game wasn't able to count such huge stacks so I got -12,000 or so skeletons whenever I tried to upgrade or split them.

*sniff*

I remember this time when I was playing with my friend. We both started with necro, a non-guarded Cloak of the Undead King + 3 4lvl artifacts (they're called major if my memory serves me well). I got the heavenly helm (don't remember the others), while he got the seacaptain's hat (again, can't remeber the others). I remember choosing Isra for main. Got expert necromancy first day . I was clearing the map with lotsa liches while he still struggled to get expert necro lol.I had two stacks of 400 liches each when he surrendered. And I didn't even bother to buy/build anything in my town lol. Never won with him ever since (well, except the time when we did a main-fight-only with same troops, my Tazar vs. his Hack).

Not transforming other dragons, but the hydra, which I dislike for no reason...


I don't know about that.  A stack of Hydras can attack several hexes at once.  If you have enough of them they can be useful.

Did you know .... that Troglodytes are immune to Blind?
