Poll Question:
Nagas or Genies

What will you choose, Nags or Genies?

I think that Naga is mutch beter than the weak genie. The genie ran out of speel points in the early middle game, wen the can always atack. The only good thing with the genie is it's "cerate illusion spell" (and somethimes the "song of peace" speel) but otherwise it's a bad unit. Nags are wery stron, and they have the unlimited rellation Spa; so I think they are the better chooise for the LvL. 3 acardemy unit.

I have to disagree.
Genies are in my opinion far superior.
Their spellcasting ability is the reason.
If you separate them into several stacks of 1 and one stack of the rest, you can keep casting Song of Peace on their strong units while accumulating your own army of strong units. ie Vampires.
This makes for a powerful strategy which will eliminate most wild stacks, and many newbie players.

OMG, learn to type man!

BTW, pre-equi Genies are so much better it's not even funny. In equilibris, it's a fair choice.

Genies are masters when the time comes to take another castle and its strongly guarded. They get no penalty shooting at enemy archers with ice bolts what makes it piece of cake taking them out and doing a fair hand to hand battle .

Depends on your other chosen units, if you pick mages instead of golems you could rather chose naga`s but other ways genies to balance some.. Though I mostly have mages and genies cause I love there magic.

Genies v. Nagas

Personally, I have to side with the majority and say that genies are my unit of choice.  Nagas are pretty cool, but their slow speed and inability to shoot or fly is no match for the genie's raw versatility.  Even if you're dealing with foes that are resistant or immune to magic, the genies still has options, thanks to Mirth and Create Illusion.  Compared to the genie, who can do so many different things, the slow, plodding, one-trick pony naga never seemed like a good choice.  Now, granted, from an aesthetic perspective, I prefer spellcasters and ranged attackers in general, but, unlike the Mage/Golem question, where the Mage has all the staying power of tissue paper and the Golem has 75% Magic Resistance, there's really nothing the Naga has to bring it up to the same level as the Genie.  The Naga is a very good unit (No Retaliation is nothing to sneeze at), but it has the misfortunte to be placed next to a unit that is in my opinion a tad overpowered for a level 3.  If the Genie had fewer hit points or couldn't fly or something, maybe....

Well, Nagas with their nice speed and their 3-handed attack specialty are very good hero-killers.

genies are so much more versatile.  They have strong magic and can amake a huge impact on the battlefield.. I rarely choose this castle, but if I play random and get it - I always choose the genies, I know how deadly they are when up against them.  I agree, song of peace can win the battle alone.

Without specification whether official game genies and nagas or Equilibris genies and nagas are compared this discussion leads to nowhere. I do not understand from many post, which game version people are actually talking about.

In official game genies are simply overpowered. With Equilibris add-on, nagas are very good too.
