Landsknecht, your mission description contains a few shortcomings.

Quote:
... before visiting the Tree of Knowledge (near Lorekeep, make sure you have at lease 2,000 gold before you visit)


The Tree of Knowledge can offer you a levelup for either 2000 gold, 10 gems or for free. This is chosen randomly for each Tree, when the mission starts, and remains the same for that Tree throughout the game.

Quote:
...
- IF he just captured that city he will automatically visit there. bring him out of that city JUST ONE PACE IS ENOUGH. and then re-visit the same city.


Actually, he will be just outside and learn all spells in the Mage Guild that he doesn't already know. This was changed (though I don't know in which patch), since there are quite a few missions where the mission ends on capturing a city - making it impossible for the Hero to learn the spells stored inside it before the mission ends. After his victory, the Hero still needs to move 1 position to actually enter the city (and in the visiting slot of the city).

Small bug here: when Markal visits a city and curses it, he does so from the visiting slot. After the Academy town has transformed, however, the visiting slot is empty, even though Markal does show up in that spot on the adventure map. When you then hire a Hero in that town, it will appear in the exact same spot as Markal.

Quote:
... EVERY CITY HAS THE MAXIMUM MAGE GUILD LEVEL! POSSIBLE!


The original Academy Towns can only build up to level 2 Mage Guilds. You don't have to curse them at the very moment you capture them; you can first build out the Mage Guilds, learn the spells you don't yet know, and THEN curse them.

Quote:
plus King Cyris is tough!!!!).


Actually, depending on how well you play, defeating the stack of Titans that appears behind you to block your way as you are almost at King Cyrus, is also quite good possible. But then again, I like to play the way you described: visit every stat booster, learn all spells possible and maximize my Heroes' levels. And I play conservative; any troops that die along the way won't fight for me in battles that follow, after all.

Quote:
Populations of Bone Dragons should grow large enough by now, you can have about 60+ bone dragons "collected" in total (not purchased from any cities), and once you done with that . go straight to the portal where cyrus got in. DON'T upgrade those dragons!!!!!!!! (and DON'T BUY ADDITIONAL BONE DRAGONS THROUGH!)


They fixed this in a patch some time ago. Last time I did this mission, I had 5 Bone Dragons join along the way, which I upgraded to Spectrals. Then I bought 16 Spectrals from one of my towns, so it totalled 21. That completed the objective right away.

So from the sounds of it, you are using an older version of the game.

Ending Cinematic?

Hey everyone,

I completed the necro campaign, but I didn't get the cinematic of Markal raising Nicolai...

Did I not do well enough? I only got a 'pit fiend' rank (a serious step down from the 'Black Dragon' rank I achieved for Inferno and Haven)? Or is it a glitch.

I've got 1.6.

Strange.. Check the dialogue replays from the options, you can probably watch it there.

So I decided to test my mad HoMM skillz on heroic, and I'm on C3M2, the "legendary" map where Orange attempts to attack you with a strong army as you build a Haven castle. But that was not the hard part for me.

The hard part for me is trying to beat the map, the final siege. So Markal is my strongest ,but he's expert in dark magic and he has six light magic spells but only three dark magic spells (weakness, mass vulnerability, sorrow). I don't have war machines, and the computer just shoots my catapult, leaving my 60+ death knights on the other side of the wall to be bombarded by Academy ranged. So basically, I am screwed, because there's like, 20 titans, 400 gremlins, and 100 battle magi who are having their way with me. It does not help that they have like, 4 morale, either. It's too bad that sorrow has to be cast individually and that it does not stack.

I built up the Haven mage guild up to lv 4 (because that's all Godrick could learn anyway). He's got mass haste, but that's still useless if I can't get over the wall. The AI likes to cast weakness on my crossbowmen (the ones that can shoot across the map without penalty), rendering them pretty weak too.

/rant

Edit:

NEVERMIND

I just remembered that the Haven castle has Confusion in it. Godrick can't learn confusion, so that's why it didn't pass over to Markal even though he has Scholar. Problem solved...hopefully. I'll update in about 30 minutes, since that's about how long it takes to go back to the Haven castle from the Necro one and back over the water and learning the spells and fighting the battle. Too bad Titans are not affected by mass confusion.

Edit 2: Got Puppet Master. GG. How silly of me to not upgrade the Haven Mage guild. I forgot that Haven's secondary spell tree was dark....

Edit 3: Nope, still got my butt kicked. Puppeted the Rashashkas, and it says that it's supposed to last three turns, but only lasts one, and their turns are so rare, I only get a chance to hit once. besides, the 25 titans hit too hard and too often with their 4 morale and 1 luck (luck triggered every time even though it's rated at 1. WTF???)

So, back to square one.

I'm beaten with the problem at the end of necro campaign mission 3 with the 20 dragons.

I tried everything I found in this thread but I cannot follow that wizard.

So the game is broken for me.

Can somebody give me a savefile where this mission is completed or where all campaigns are free?

How do I convert a city?

Markal has the staff of the necropolis, and I'm trying to convert the town he got it from. I've made him enter it, nothing happened. Checked buildig options, checked his spells, no button which I can press.

It just says "he can convert towns using the staff" but not which button to press!"

I can't go on without this, someone help please.


EDIT: Nevermind, got the message now. It cost 10k gold, AND it ruined all the buildings? How can I defend myself now without even a wall?

Just go into the town view with Markal in town and then come out and it asks do you want to curse the town.

Problem/bug with mission 1: The Temptation

I can't complete the first mission because of what appears to be a bug.  After a while the orange enemies stop moving, which means the path is blocked and I can't complete the mission. I installed the patches and that didn't fix it.  Anyone know of a solution to this problem?

The be-all-end-all solution to bugs in homm5 is to replay the mission from scratch (yes its annoying and takes long in some cases), patches may help in some but there's just too many bugs in this game.

You might just get lucky and get less bugs in some cases.

Problem seems to be fixed.  Haven't finished the mission yet but the orange enemies are still moving around.  The patches possibly fixed it.  When I installed the first 5 patches I didn't restart my computer before playing but I installed 1.06 last night and waited until now to play (turned computer off overnight).  Hopefully I can finish the mission.

The orange heroes only freeze if you load the game, as far as I know.

This is more of an answer for will of asha campaign. I'm at the last mission. Will I use Arantir and Ornella in later missions? Cause I'd kinda prefer not needing to go around and take all stat-bosting objects. It is a very big map after all.

Yes you will, will help you if you have a strong Ornella. But you can win anyway.

Well, since he's in the last mission and assuming he means later campaigns, I guess neither of them will be much use later.

What I meant with the last mission is the one where you have to capture flammschrein. I will probably win without the stat boosts, but heroes often revisit in later campaigns and are used again.

But I think Elvin got it already. Thanks
