Best First Level Creature...

What is your favorite 1st level creature?

I am very partial to the master gremlins.  I like a first level shooter that is easy to get and grows very rapidly.  Have good numbers of MGs early in game can really give you that economic boost that can start your game out right.  Late game you usually have huge numbers of this unit and they are somewhat ignored by your opponant, so they give great support for higher level units.

skeletons/gnols/goblins/centaurs/upgraded gremlins are my fav.

Imps, Trogs and Faeires are not so strong, or maybe i don't know how to use them well.

centaurs are the strongest 1st lev unit and their speed is enough to kill shooters at the beginning of the game.

Imps.  Just look at the cost.

No, seriously, I say the best is Centaur.  Sure, Pikemen have 25% more HP, but they're shooter fodder with their pthetic speed rating.  Centaur Captains can reach the enemy with only one round of half-damage fire if you use "wait," and then suddenly your opponent has no shooters.

Marvellous: Centaur/Centaur captain.......

Good: Pikemen/Hal, Sexy sprites , MG

Average: Skele, Gnoll, Goblin, Trog

Sucks: Gremlin, imp

And IMO, Centaur, MG and sprites are the only three lv1 stacks u can use to clear lightly guarded early mines without heavy casulties. Centaur against any low level stacks. MG and sprites against slow walkers.

Skele and imp are only good in hordes from necromancy and week of imps(Inferno grail). But since grail is usually not allowed in many games especially multiplayer games, so.....

imps just sucks......
and familiar also sucks..........................
your spell pts as well

Choice between...

Fairies, Skeletons, Centaurs and Master Gremlins.

Fairies have no retaliation attack and are fast. I have find them many times useful than many other first level creatures.
You get skeletons pretty much and I think they play larger role than any other first level creature for their town.
Centaurs are fast and furious. Very useful in the early game and sometimes even in the late game.
Master Gremlins are only shooting first level unit and they can really change the game. However when opponent gets his flyers to move before Master Gremlins they end up death.

I would pick Skeletons as I like Necropolis and the fact that you can use them later as big bunch like they would be high level unit.

Halflings.... they may not be that strong BUT they havegood morale and gain attention from towers... (pretty handy when you have titans in the army...)

edit: since Hobbits are out of league, I go for the MGs too

Halflings are neutral so not a pick.
I'll go with Old_timer once more and let those Master Gremlins (again a shooter is my favorite) take the fame!

Here I go

The Centaur Capstan is (in my opinion) the best first level creature. Also Halibardiers are not bad in fact they got better stats then Centaur Capstan but their speed is a drawback.
I consider Sprites very good too. You usually get them in high numbers in the beggining and this creature has the biggest production per week in the whole game. They are fast , fly and no enemy retaliation. In some battles they are even better  than Centaur Capstans or Halibardiers.

The best - Centaur Captain! (fast and tough)
Great - Halberdier (tough but vulnerable to range troops)
Worthwhile - Master Gremlin (too easy to wipe out, but cheap), Sprite (very, very annoying in the thousands, but can you keep them alive?), Skeleton Warrior (average to good all-around, but it's the quantity that makes them insane), Hobgoblin (fast, but not very tough), Gnoll Marauder (like Skeleton Warriors but not as many)
Bad - Infernal Troglodyte (only redeeming quality is that you can have 150 on day 1 if you start with Shakti and buy another hero), Gremlin without upgrade (weak as all get-out)
The worst - Familiar (think Hobgoblin but much, much worse)

Centaur Captains!

I would definately have to agree with the majortiy on this this one and say Centaur Captains are the best level 1 Creatures in the game. Followed 2nd by Halbadiers as they are pretty good as well!

I think sprites are the best, they have a great growth rate and that non-retaliation special is great.

Big problem with Sprites - a hero with 1 spell power and no magic skills kills 6 (7 if one is already damaged) with Magic Arrow. That's why they're not the best. That same Magic Arrow takes down two Centaurs - a loss of 4-6 damage instead of 6-18.

Even that way killing 7 sprites in 50 is the same has killing 2 centaurs in 24.

I think Centaur Captains are the best level 1, except pikemen beat normal centaurs, since they only have 8 hp.
