Answering the previous post:
From now on I just need 3 spells... and you know which ones .


The only spell i havent got is mark of the necromancer, the problem with  me is that i havent got enough mana too complete the whole battle, i use puppet master twice, on the rakashajas and the mages, that works fine (only sometimes the mages, before puppet master, fire trough thier own rakashajas), but i can kill that way alot of enemies, but in the end im too weak to fight 30 rakashajas and i have no mana left for fire trap or raise dead, those beasts kill me, and the titans, which are way too powerfull (it are f*cking ranged 7th level units!)

So perhaps, (yes i am a quiter!) can some one offer me a save game so i can continue with the dungeon. btw i never liked necro, the burning legion is so much cooler!

edit, i have expert summoning, but the only creature i can summon are 40 fire elementals? (or do you need a high level mage guild for the phoenix?)

Answering the previous post:
What made me win this lvl was my endless mana. Godric's mana pool is large but when he waste eveything you can beat it easly... follow the following strategy. I've won .

I want to give some tips for everyone that are playing the 5th lvl of the necro campaign.

It was already said here that you need to develop a little the haven city so later on the lvl you can convert all your army into undead one.

Extremly necessary and important spells to have in your heroe:

Puppet Master
Raise Dead
Mark of the Necromancer

To have an idea I've wiped out the Godric's army without a single dragon in my army (they arent that good anyway).

That three spells saved my day. The final battle with godric was extremly cool. Basicly I casted(2 or 3 times,when turns was ending) Puppet Master in the Rakshasa Raja stack (30+) and in the archmages (80+). Whatever you attack with Rakshasa Raja you wont get retaliation so the Puppet Master effect will not end . I attacked with the archmages the distant melee units, so no retaliation too.
I casted the Mark of the Necromancer in my Wraith stack (30 or so) and whatever was need I casted Raise Dead in that stack too.

So guess what: I had endless mana in the fight (cus of the Mark of the Necromancer) 2 powerfull puppets and a Raise Dead spell (costing 4 mana) to keep my army up.

When everything was down aexcept the Rakshasa Raja and archmages I ordered the Rakshasa Raja to kill the archmages (2 turns and the archs was dead).

At this point I only had 13 Wraiths and 1 Plague Zombie up (my arches was killed easy by the titans and I opted to raise the wraiths instead).

Basicly my strategy to kill the Rajas was t send them to the fire traps and kill them all with my heroe (turn over turn). For my luck when the Rajas was in the fire traps they defended all the time and didnt attacked at all (bug?).

So when I finally killed all the first Godric's army I only had 15 Wraiths, 1 Plague Zombie (lol, decoy) and 8 Lichs out of Death Clouds.

The strategy to kill the haven army was exactly the same.. Puppet Master, Mark of the Necromancer (which is permanent) and Rasie Dead (Wraiths).

So basicly I've wiped out the Godric's army with only a few Wraiths, 3 powerfull spells, and a extremly good brain (mine ).

Now I see that the necro faction could be so god damm powerfull with the right spells in your heroe. Remeber I had endless mana.

My final battle army was somehting like this:

30 Wraiths, 150 spectres, 260 Plague Zombies, 670 archers, 41 Vamp Lords and 30 Lichs (I didnt even upgraded the Lichs lol).

Artifacts:

Cuirass of the Dwarven King
Wings of the Angel
Ring of Caution
Ring of Lightning Protection
Cape of the Lions Mane

From now on I just need 3 spells... and you know which ones .


I completely agree. This method worked perfectly.

Mission 3

I see that most of the posters here have cleared the whole map, but I have encountered a problem.......there is one orange hero that have a massive army that I cant beat....have a 1000k skeleton, 100 vampire, 17 dragons, 200 zombies, 100 ghosts, 40 liches army (all upgraded), but he still beats me.....and now I see a green hero moving down to me, also with a huge army....I have played gerilja tactic for now, with my necro hero taking out one city and the human hero playing hide and seek with the orange hero.....taking and loosing the cities on the start island. But now the green dude comes and then it will be difficult....

I'm posting 2 more save files to download.
Guldan (or anyone that need it) you have 2 choices:

1. Download the save file of the 5th lvl of the necro campaign and fight with godric following the strategy I've posted. The army is ready you just need to go and fight with him.

2. Download the save file of the 1st lvl of the dungeon campaign. The save file is brand new. So you're in the day 1 of the week 1. You have 30 days (4 weeks) to prepare your army for a heroe challenge.

------------------------------------------
NECRO LVL (5th - last battle):SAVE FILE - 5TH LEVEL
------------------------------------------

------------------------------------------
DUNGEON LVL (brand new):SAVE FILE - 1ST LEVEL
------------------------------------------

Have fun.

Please help

Im stuck on lvl 3 of necro campaign and I cant seem to get it right.
The major problem I find on these campaigns is starting off, Speed seems to be the key to winning but when I charge across and land on the mainland on the right I capture ziyad and I can turn it into a necropolis but 4 turns later orange comes down and flattens me, What am I doing wrong??. Also if I hide in the sanctuary I find that a week later green will come down on a boat and attack my haven town newpost which I cannot defend either cuz they are too strong. I find it difficult to get enough resources to build up the towns I get wood,ore,crystal,mercury but sulfer and gems? and gold shortages.

It could be that on lvl2 i didnt lvl up my hero enough or correctly? as I used a hero that I bought to win that map. Mykal is lvl14, orange hero is lvl21/22 i think.

For the love of god why do they make it so difficult

i found out that the key to win this campaign is the markal ability to recruit free undead armies. Find any stack of neutral undead and collect them as much as u can, then u can hold of any attack until u have ur own undead to be bought at ur town.

this cannot be done at last mission, coz small map = less neutral creature. The strongest i can recruit is 10 @ 13 wraiths between Newpost  
and lorekeep.

i have gone back and done lvl2 again (Once you have completed a level it is a lot easier when you play it again ). I now can try lvl 3 again but this time my character is lvl20 so maybe that will make a difference.

How do you guys start lvl3? I assume you pick the netherworld spell as your starting choice and how long before you get on a boat? do you stay on your island for 1week then go and take ziyad with mykal?

Tnx for all the help, i finished the level, there were a few things futher generations must keep in mind in the necro level 5,

Those 3 spells:

raise undead
mark of the necromances
puppeteer master

are a MUST!!!

Futher you need some mana and knowlegde (is this correct?). to make your spells cheap in mana and last long.

( my story: I had no mark of the wizard, to low mana, and spells costed too much! My army was good enough, but those spells just are the best!Yo0u cant finish the level without them)

Again tnx for the help!

success here as well. finally finished mission3. after the fight with orange`after taking zylad the mission was very easy.

main problem
------------
basically hero wasnt strong enough as i didnt use him enough on mission2 hero needs to be lvl20 so you have plenty of mana.

how i finally scraped past the battle.
--------------------------------------
spent about 3-4turns on island then went accross and captured zylad then fight orange dude that comes down to attack (making sure i had collected the bone dragons,vampires and had about 100 ghosts which were also very useful in the battle and of course  accumulate as many skeleton archers as you can before the battle) all you have to do then is use raise dead spell when anything gets killed.

To chaos-X, i think the first save (and the 2nd save have that both, they are for thre campaign. Thier extension is .sav, and if you do not know where to put em (i wont tell where i put em, it will be different!) then try to search on .sav, just with windows searching, you will get all the save games from you comp, including Homm 5, just look at the map and follow the order!

When you are having trouble in the 5th level i suggest you take the first save, it is now rather easy to complete the mission and you can the continue with dungeon, with me it worked fine!

I know where to put the saves.The deal is that these are in-game saves.There are in-game saves and a campaign save that has the missions unlocked.If i use a campaign.sav then i would have the required mission unlocked, instead of using someones in-game save i would be playing from the start.

Can't you just put em there, then load it, walk around, then quit and go to the campaign selection screen,it should be unlocked, or just do restart mission?

Perhaps i just do not undertsand what you say, my English isn't too good, so i do not understand everything.

okay let me explain it easily.there are 2 types of saves.the campaign.sav and save.sav.Using the save.sav i can't unlock the missions even if i exit the mission or restart it.However if i use campaign.sav i would have mission 4 unlocked.Simply to say campaign.sav unlocks the missions where as save.sav is simply in-game save.So i ask anyone who ever finished campaign 3 mission 3 simply please give the campaign.sav that is located in the My Documents\My Games\Heroes of Might and Magic V\Profiles\you profile\Saves instead of a save.sav.

Youre welcome, it will probably have the first and second of the dungeon campaign as well, but i think it is much more fun just to play all the levels.
