necromancer scenario 1

For some reason I cannot get the orange heroes to actually move, which means that I cannot get across the river. Is there something I need to do in the game to get them moving? Or is this just some known bug?

thanks

Hi. I need help with Campaign 3 The Necromancer: Mission 3 - The Invasion for Heroes 5.

I read through most of this thread, but didn't find an answer. What a mess. I can't finish MIssion 3, so I can't go on to the other Missions and Campaigns.

The bottom line is: How do I find Cyrus to defeat him and complete the mission?

I have completed all the other Primary and Secondary Objectives. I got the first 2 artifacts and then when trying to capture the 3rd, Cyrus runs away, etc. I had a problem with the 20 Bone Dragons, but then resolved it. I bought all the dragons from the Necropolis towns that I had converted. Here's a caution to others, though. I upgraded to Spectral Dragons and when I had over 20 of them, nothing happened. It has to be BONE Dragons. So then at the end of each week, I bought Bone Dragons and when I had 20, it showed Objective Completed and showed a New Objective, to find and kill Cyrus to complete the mission.

The problem is that I can't find Cyrus and I have searched everywhere. I gave up and downloaded the Mod here that says it will make the Campaign complete, so that you can play any mission within it. It created a file called "campaign.sav" and I put it in my Profile/Saved folder. But when I ran the game, it crashed. Fortunately, I saved my original "campaign.sav," which the Mod should have suggested you do.

Anyway, that didn't work, so now I'm back to square one. If anyone could please tell me how to find Cyrus and complete Mission 3 of the Necromancer Campaign, so I can move on, I would really appreciate it.

Thanks.

P.S. After posting this, I figured out how to complete Mission 3. In the upper right of the map, there are two portals. The one on the left, you could always go through. The one on the right, you can't go through until after you get the 20 Bone Dragons. You have to go through the one on the right and then you win the mission and go to a cut scene. You don't actually have to fight Cyrus.

Now I have a problem with Campaign 3: Mission 5. I read the walkthrough and it says that after you get the daughter from the prison and head back to the Necropolis, Angels attack you and after you defeat them, they give Markal, the Angel Wings, so he can fly. The problem is that NEVER happened with me. I have the daughter in Markal's inventory, but went back to Lorekeep and absolutely nothing happened. It didn't acknowledge that I brought the daughter back to begin negotiations. I wasn't attacked by Angels and received no Angel Wings.

This is very frustrating. I like the game a lot, but the Campaign is very buggy. None of the other Heroes games suffered from this problem and I played them all. I have all the patches and my game version is 1.60.

Did anyone else have this problem and can you tell me how to fix it?

Thanks.

P.S. See newer message from me, for how I completed it.

yes a lot of us had that problem, you must not have actually read the thread

The best and possibly only way to get around these bugs in homm5 is to restart a mission/scenario, or reload further back, perhaps try to change your actions (changing the variables will help get around the bug).

I had version 1.0 (or whatever the starting version without updates is), I had a few bugs along the way but got around them and finished the game using the above strategy...

Hi, bigshot.

Well, I read some of the thread to see how it was supposed to work. Didn't read all 19 pages, though.

I wound up completing Campaign 3: Mission 5. I restarted the Mission and got the daughter right away. This time, she appeared as another hero, which is what I expected. The first time, she appeared in Markal's inventory, of all things. The second time, the Angels attacked, I got the wings, and the rest was a piece of cake.

Now, I start Campaign 4.

Bug help

Bug problem.I recently reinstalled the game and patched it to 1.6 while using my old 1.0 saves.I'm currently replaying the campaigns and when I started necro campaign chapter 2 I realized that Godric had the old crappy skillset from my old save. Markal's was readjusted according to my recent chapter 1 replay.I even redid Fall of the King to no avail. I checked chapter 3 of the necro campaign, Isabel has her new skillset but Godric's simply doesn't change. Does anyone have any idea what is causing this and is there any solution?
Thank you in advance!

Doesn't anybody have a clue about this?From what I've read I understand that starting a new profile and replaying the campaigns should do the trick but I don't want to do it all over again.Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

you could try replaying one or two missions but that's about it. Just not easy fix for these bugs...

First of all thanks for the reply man. I already replayed several missions before posting on the forum and even found another guy with the same problem on some other site. He hasn't been replied for 2 years so I can assume that the only real solution is to replay the campaigns from the start on a new profile after patching.
Haven campaign here I come...again...

first of all, what is the difficulty of your games?

Anyway i play the campaigns at hard. I passed all necro missions with ONLY vampire princes. i used regular army only for orlando and until then it was growing in my towns. so raise and recruit many vampires. uses spells that protect them and make them play better and you will win without any difficulty

That's the original H5 walkthrough mate, no Orlando there. No idea how you could have trouble, you get way too many undead joiners. Maybe you should scout a bit to get more of them?

An interesting note I like to share from replaying necro campaign

Map 5 (Lord of Heresh or smt) could be very easy if you prepare Markal good enough. I defeat Godric in day 4 (or 5) with the following strategy :

-Give him Destructive magic skill, Scorcery, Summon magic (and Dark magic if you want to).

-There are 2 ways to learn destructive magic : you can up the mage guilds of academy towns in Map 3 with libraries. Or I've found a more interesting way : there is Havez, an wizard in map 3 with Acarne Omniscience, right after you defeat him (he is one with big army, you have to fight him anyway), hire him from your tavern. Train another 20+ level Necro hero with destructive magic, summon, dark and scholar, it's actually very easy, just give him all necro army and artifact, which are plenty in map 3, and fight those gates, answer the Sphinx correctly for 15 or 20k exp. Then transfer all magic from Havez to him then to Markal. This way Markal even learns Town Portal, a spell that he is supposed to not have. If you miss Havez, there is Isabel who also has Town Portal.

-In map 5, just go straight to haven town, when Markal is near enough, use town portal, pass the four swords beast stack. Angels won't defect you if you garisson them in town in day 1. Day 2 you can carry them just fine. Take Angels in town, take Freyda, take the Wraith, kill the Rashka smt stack, raise some more Wraiths, kill the angels and go for Godric. I kill his academy army with Meteor, Chain lightning and Lightning, just defend with Wraith. I give Godric everything I can before, so he is very strong, resurrect like crazy but eventually Markal is superior, destructive magic wise.

And there is no second Haven army if you fight him in week 1. Suprised ! From day 1 week 2 he will have 10 angels, some paladins, some priests, 130 swordmen as reinforcement.

I play version 1.6

P.s : map 3, the monolith of Cyrus doesn't have the right icon, but it works just fine. All you have to do is double click on it.
