It doesn't do anything to AI.
Also it has nothing to do with Monsters fleeing, see diplomacy internals.

I think I saw AI using Disguise, however, don't quote me on that as I may be completely wrong. Also Disguise only suppossedly lasts 1 turn and AI tends to go after human players, not before.

However, dumbly enpugh this no-effect spell is BANNED from many H3 tournaments. Why? Seems russians do not like it and think it is overpowered. So much for deception strategy.

I have this question in HoMM3 Tactics for some time, without any answer, maybe someone knows it:
bloodsucker said:
Is there a way to hide from View Air? Maybe with Disguise or something. I saw this guy moving, can't had flee with TP cause I took his last town and yet, I can't locate him with View Air.


It was too long ago to remember the details but I'm pretty sure I saw the guy moving, used expert View Air and couldn't find it anywhere. RoseCavalier already proved AI heroes don't TP to other players towns and I had taken all of his. As far as I remember I was able to find him that day using Expert Scouting or Scouting specialist...

To summarize, then... does Disguise make your hero's army seem bigger or smaller to the enemy hero?

Seriously, though: does Disguise make your army appear bigger (to scare enemies off) or smaller (to lure unsuspecting enemies into a trap)?

Also, can AI use Disguise, or is the spell disabled for computer-controlled heroes?

The disguise makes your army appear bigger, as anyone that has ever used can attest to.

Actually the quantities of creatures stays the same. Just that all stacks are replaced by your strongest creature in the army.

So if you had 200 gnolls, 10 basilisks and 3 hydras,
The enemy would see 200 hydras, 10 hydras and 3 hydras.

Thus the usefulness would seem limited.
Yet, it is perfect for obscuring army composition in multiplayer sometimes (if it is not banned and you play before the opponent)

The AI only plays after you on single player, so even if they used Disguise, I think you would never see it (unless it could last more than a turn...)

Thanks for clarifying that.  

I guess I'll never have any use for Disguise, then, as I only play against the computer.
