After all is said and done, really doubt playing with Ossir needs any strategy. :-)

On the offchance that you are correct, then I understand your concern.  In that case, I would put sprites and bladedancers infront of your ranged units and then move the unicorns into position.



Very, very bad idea vs. Dungeon.  If you put bladedancers or sprites in front like that, the dragons will come up, slam them in front and get a free breath attack on the druids or hunters because their attack spans two squares.  This tactic can work in some cases, but it's not good in others.  Putting the druids on one side and the hunters on another side is usually much better.

Heaven doesn`t have offensive spells (and dark magic spells) so unicorn in front of range units is a mistake. (can be beaten by palladins then archangel can fly there)


Haven can have both destructive and dark magic.

Short question regarding Favoured enemies in Dual:

What decides which enemy units are favorites?

Is this always only for the hero and not for creatures?

I'm almost sure it's randomal.
The computer pick up randomal creatures from those you are going to fight with in each battle.

I have just tested it myself in Hot seat, and it's poor you don't get a list over favoured enemies.

Does anyone ever pick the Swarm Queen lass? Seems like the worst speciality ever.

Well Dirael can be really useful IF: (however not in the duel mode.)

1. you have ultimate avanger. (so you can have 4 favoured enemy)
2. Have imbue arrow and arrow rain
3. have expert summoning magic
4. imbue ballista

Why? Use the bee swarm spell to imbue your arrows than use Arrow Rain. This will not only deal damage, but it will make 4(!!!) enemy to delay. It may sound as a small advantage, but it is really helpful. And with the ballista you can make 5 enemy to delay. In a long battle, some of your troops will be able to act twice, because of this spell...

If you ask me, the Bee swarm spell is the best for the imbue Arrow skill, because Rangers dont have much splellpower, but the delay effect is rather useful.

But as said before: this is not Dirael in the Duel mode.

I somewhat had to correct my impression of Wasp Swarm, but the damage part doesn't really matter much since the spell deals pathetic damage compared to most other offensive spells (even other Summoning spells), and the difference in ATB delay is rather small, too. I suppose your idea would be a good reason to take her, but her duel form doesn't support her speciality in any such way and Imbue Ballista is hard to get. Avenger is somewhat better now as the favorite enemy is now all 3 forms rather than just one, but the pratical issue of "go back to your town to prepare for the enemy hero" remains.
