Issus set is awesome for archmage fireballing Azzie had pulled a good one with refined mana + sky daughters, that's an instant powerful chain lightning for you.

Swift mind + divine guidance is nice but I prefer to aim for empathy/retribution first, it pays off more on average. No doubt a good thing to have vs shooters though. Swift mind I often pick later, it's a shame not to pick since you need logistics anyway.

something else -
what if u go fo seraphs vs sylvan, and put ur conscript/brute stack near the xbows/marksmen ? imo the sylvans cristal dragons will have a pretty good chance to hit the not-so-usefull lvl 1s and to boost the div vengeance dmg quite good ? in this case their own luck will be turned against them

also if the placement is like that:

MX
XC

where M = marksmen, C= conscript, X = random unit/squire/nothing

then, if any "normal dragon" (that hits directly the tile behind) wants to kill some marksmens/xbows must hit the peasents also, which means a sweet vengeance

and the formula is kinda weird -> 300 peasents x1 frag > 10 lvl 7s x7 frags, it means that killing one lvl 1 stack gives 4 times more dmg to divine vengeance than killing a lvl 7 stack

p.s
the m-x-c example is for the top left corner

Hard to tell when you are dealing with prismatic breath. I'd count more on their favoured kills in case it hits multiple targets to boost my frags, of course if you keep them in close formation you leave yourself open to imbued rain of arrows ownage.

and how about delaying/skipping the light magic when u play on small maps ? it may be reasonable to pick power of speed + expert defence and expert luck over spending 6 lvl ups in light magic, if the final battle is coming at lvl 15, besides that way u save 4 town lvls and tons of resources from magic guilds.Mass haste + div guidance should be enough

Umm why would you consider picking light on small maps in the first place?

I was just trying some stuffs while modding, and noticed you can heal mechanical / elemental units with lay hands (note : they were alive creatures before I modded them, so maybe that's the reason)
someone else noticed it? a combo paladin / magma dragon could be pretty tough.

when modding, I know that I had to change the ability of an unit from elemental to mechanical, because I didn't want it to be affected by morale.

it seems that undead, elemental and mechanical are immune to the same spells. undead and mechanical aren't affected by morale, undead are very receptive to raise dead while mechanicals and I think elementals are immune to it. mechanical units can be repaired, they get good morale from artificial glory and +2 speed from march of the machines (only golems also get +2 initiative)
I suppose undead also gives malus to the morale of your army.

Mind spell immunity yes but elemental units are affected by morale while the others are not.

Doesn't work. Squires shield allies works against Ballista shots but it doesn't work against shots hitting your ballista. Just hotseat and test stuff like that against yourself. Really easy and takes like 1 minute.

I was wondering. I am currently playing the campaign (But I am a perfectionist to a certain extent). Would Flaming Arrows/War Machines be a good choice for the Homicidal Queen, Isabel? I started a new playthrough with the first game (with TotE mechanics).

So far, I have:

Light Magic
Attack
*Whatever is her primary skill*

Training is explained in detail in the manual, it's in some folder of your game directory. Images can be posted by encasing the image location between .

Trainning

The way i see it, training is one of the best racial abilities.(sorry if i am talking about the right thing) Since there's so many advanced players here i wanna ask that in a heroic large map should we train anything or just train peasants into marksmen. I went crazy yesterday and used the cheat add 100000 money and trained 600 paladins:|.
