Is it true that Druid has 34HP, while its upgrade, Druid Elder has 33HP?

That's because he is Elder druid, he is much slower and not so healthy as his younger counterpart... and you're going offtopic here, its not creature's discussion, more like campaign discussions...

Finished this one finally.

Here's some thoughts (heroic).

Mission 1

Actually pretty good, even excellent mission I'd say. You must guard the border, meaning keeping on your side atleast 4 garrisons. My garrisons were attacked twice, first time garrison itself did the job. Second time (northest one) enemy pass through, but I was close with hero, and a nice ressurection scroll, so ended that well. Then inferno hero spawns, and heads towards your town. Had castle and nice number of hunters, so stayed alive. Needless to say, in whole campaign hunters are your backbone, keep them alive at all costs. Plus, there are close by two hunter dwellings, though second one was guarded by master hunters, so took that one a bit later. Findan has a fantastic speciality as well. Before combat actually start, all shooters fire one free shot, and always targeting lowest level in opposing army. Absolutelly great for later missions. Some tips for fighting...at start pick fights wisely, slow walkers preferably at the start, have all 7 slots filled, even cavaliers wont posse much threat when all they can hit is a single pixie, while you pound them with hunters and druids.

Mission 2

Small start area with all mines but sulphur one. I had to leave gold mine as it was guarded by horde of succubus mistresses. Others were demons, cerberus. At start go with Findan claiming those mines, and buy a boat and head with scout on sea. I didn't go underground as pit lords guarding entrance would be a bit tough. Anyway, explore a bit sea with scout, build town as much as you can (I had to trade a lot) and return with scout home. Now I've used a little trick. Both heroes knew Summon Boat spell, and we had a boat there. Seems that AI knew the spell as well...as saw one succubus hero with a bit big army summoning my boat and heading to sea. First I was pissed, but as that hero stopped on one island to kill some druids, I summoned the boat back. Hopped with Findan and all the army I could raise and head to their land. And immidiatelly after summoned boat with scout, and hopped in it. Succubus hero got stuck on that island. In their land I took fully built, and poorly defended inferno town. Silo there produces sulphur, so finally could've built treants. Anyway, turn after got attacked by another hero with some big army, and I would bet anything that it's scripted event, as haven't seen the hero before, and he was in part of map with...well, nothing there. But, with help of castle and mighty hunters, stayed alive. And kicking! Claimed all the mines there as well, and after some time it seems AI bought some boats of their own, as succubus hero summoned one, and headed for my sylvan town. Panicked at first, but as it turns out...hero was pretty bad, my scout succesfully killed the enemy. And that after it took that gold mine (and seemingly lost nothing vs horde of succubus mistresses? I smell foul play!). Anyway, there might be some other heroes coming close via water, but easily disengaged. Two more inferno castles are there, both long way via sea. With help of devils and pit lords, plus with regular sylvan army (beware of morale penalties - but it seems it affected only my inferno troops), wasn't that tough at the end. Oh yes, main objective is to gather 20 emerald dragons, two ways to do it. First, you'll be able to build dwelling in town after some event (think when you take first inferno town), or you can visit the obelisks, and dragons will appear in some places. And always join you.

Mission 3

I don't think I've ever played a worse heroes map. Have to defend main town against never ending waves of necro heroes. Who in first week come daily, later a bit rarer, but expect one each week. Those heroes have lousy stats, but are 20+ levels, and they don't waste much time on spells. Most of the times attacking your dragons, treants, unicorns. Also, each hero has a bigger army than previous one. And while you defend the town, you must get 10 green dragons, 30 silver unicorns, and 50 druid elders. Plus you must find two heroes that are in prisons in the land. And as for this being worst heroes map I've ever played, it's not just becuase of those necro waves, map is also pretty ugly, with lots of wasted space. Anyway, first time, I defended with Findan for literally months. No mines at all to build those dwelling that are needed, so only managed to trade and build in month 3, 4...don't know now. And just when I got those troops needed for objective (one that says that with them, town will be able to defend itself), and finally went with Findan to attack teal, ofcourse another necro heroes came. Bleh. Second time went well. First day, retook town, left all the troops in it but master hunters and unicorns, bought a hero (was Ossir), and went with Findan in boat. Findan went south east, to take the town that eye of the magi reveals. Ossir on the other hand leveled up quite fast. No wonder with that many enemy. Eventually he lost all emerald dragons, but at same time other troops (and green drags) increased in numbers. Anyway, Findan cleared area, took mines where that other town is...and when you feel ready break that teal garrison. Regular inferno army there 10 some spectrals, 15 or 20 wraiths, 30 or so archliches, and so on. Actually there are two garrisons on same road. Also, teal hero might come out as well. Findan with help from some troops from other Sylvan town managed to beat both garrisons, teal hero, and finally poorly defended necro town. Now just to get those two heroes (and those troops previously mentioned - they have to be in garrison in main town, as soon as you remove them from there, objecitive is active again). One hero is underground for which entrance is near necro town. Second is close to south-western corner guarded by some titans. Those heroes will be active in final scenario of campaign, so up to you if you want to level them up a bit. I did, just one, underground one...but as it turns, all I needed from her was  ability to cast Summon Creatures. So good knowledge would be plus. And logs as well.

Mission 4

Nothing much to say about this one. No town, just wondering about killing and getting joiners. Visiting stat boosters as well. Final AI heroes were no threat to me at the end. Can find those quest arties, can help ofcourse, but sadly, they do not transfer to final scenario as objective made me think. Guess I just misunderstood it.

Mission 5

Wow! First impression - beautiful! We have night in Heroes 5, and looks stunning. I was just staring at my small area for some 10-15 minutes, admiring the scenery. Anyway...Findan found not much resistance in his start area when having combined army from three heroes. Left just 45 Raksahasahsadadasdjahfa Rajas alone. Anyway, I think it was week 2 when I broke through the garrisons, got abandoned mines and went through two way portal. There visited quest hut, and soon after got attacked by necro hero. Carrying 550 skeleton archers, ouch. Plus hero casts like crazy project image spell (not sure of exact name now), and that, you guessed right, on skellies. Reloaded, and got some more hunters, druids, actually all the army I could get, and got attacked again (maybe it was week 3 now). Findans speciallity kicked in, killed some 100 skellies, had luck with initiative, and as soon as it was AI's turn...he fled! Guess this happens quite often. Could've hurt me more, but instead opted for this crazy option. Oh well. A bit about objective. You have to kill Nicolai, now Vampire Lord, and Nicolai is that silly looking (on adventure map) chap you'll hear lots of times as he instant travels. But as you kill him, he immidiatelly respawns back...and now you have to bring back the dawn. That supposedly help in this task of killing him. And how to do that...well, attack some spectral dragons that are revealed when visiting eye of the magi, and you'll see. Anyway, after that first necro hero, took his town which is in same area, cleared that area as well, got all mines, but left those 900 wights alone. After some time went through another two way portal, this time you exit in underground, there are two necro towns here, plus three great artifacts behind some garrisons. One town is in center of the map, other in south-west corner. There I've seen some crazy numbers of skeletons on one hero, something that poster above me spoke about. Just 5,000 skellies this time. Well, I had enough troops, that Findan's speciallity killed around 600-700 of them I think. And again, hero fled when got it's turn. Had atleast still some 2,000-3,000 skelies when did that. Also, there's a golden bow (again, not sure of H5 name for it) right next to road when you go down from 2-way portal. Helps a ton. Now, you can explore the underground, getting those two necro towns (I got first southwest one, then 5,000 skels hero came close), and beating those spectral dragons. There's another portal in north east corner that leads directly into the heart of necromancers, but I think you are safe in underground, as not once I saw AI coming - save for those that were already there. Get as many troops as you can, I had everything but sprites, and go through that north east portal. Oh, look, another hero with legions of skellies. But now, 10,000+! This time battle went some time before AI fled. Lost all emerald dragons (35+), and war dancers and some unicorns. And that after couple of reloads. Atleast AI knows how to shield those skellies. Each stack of master hunters, druid elders killed some 500+ skeletons, and I shot only them. Rest of AI army possed no such threat. Also, that hero always casted first Banshee Howl. If it'd casted phantom image first (which is instant it seems) I'd be dead. Also, I attacked at start with emerald dragons, and their breath attack killed not only necro dragons, but some 400-500 skellies as well. Unicorns killed vampires (I had tactics), My archers shot skellies, treant waited, war dancers went towards necro troops, and now was skellies turn.They killed dragons, guess for no range penalty. I ressurected some dragons, to have them as a decoy, shot some more skellies, lost all dancers and after some time AI fled. Phew. Hardest part of the game is now over. I took the town there, beat spectral dragons, visited some power boosters, and there first meeting with little funny vampire lord. And attacks me. Better in stats than other heroes, with bigger army, but with just 2,000 some skeletons. Likes to cast implo on my druids, and even with his spell power, it kills around 30 of them. While I ress them 27 back. Nice trade off. Better than phantom image. Anyway, with him casting implo, you have just to worry about his shooters first, as others wont reach you in one turn. After beating him, he respawned back with same or bigger army, but with just 200 some skellies. He decided to ignore me this time. Well, ok. I'll do the same. Headed for other necro town a bit south west of that in center, got it, got spectral dragons that were close (by the way, biggest stack of them I've encountered was around 150, easily dispatched - guess previous poster waited a bit too long), went through another portal, another town there, another hero, but again with 'just' 2,000 some skelies. Beat dragons that were close there, and here comes the dawn! Grew tired and went for final encounter with Nicolai which stayed in his recaptured necro town in center of map.

Also, one question for others that played this map. I've found only three optional objective artifacts, all three underground...but can't find the fourth anywhere, dwarven cuirass. Anyone knows where it might be?

Guess some bugs for both of you. I personally haven't encountered such errors, but there have been many reports about it...

All I can recommend is to start over. It sucks I know...

I don't know how to end first mission of Ranger's. I just waited for so long a time, but the enemy just didn't come. sometimes one hero attacked my garrison and then I took it back. But I don't know how long I have to wait before I complete this mission....... What should I do??

Hope someone can give me some tips.ĦĦI just want to finish it soon.

Thx!

It's a bug, try loading up an earlier save. The Inferno faction is supposed to show up a day before the cutscene that shows Findan and the Inferno creatures.

There's an objective where you have to garrison the capitol with like 50 druids, 30 silver unicorns, and 10 emerald dragons. They have to stay garrisoned in the castle in order for the objective to remain complete.

some thoughts on campaign

"i get the one for army"
was a bug. i found the heroes but.. no objective completed. restarted and finished fast. by the way. i can see no reason for building up those two heroes, even if you have them on the last map. there is no need for them to fight. only logistics and pathfinding will be useful cose they will bring you army. You must use avenger on skeletons archers - as soon as posible. do not go underground without, you will lose more-, for the rest is animportand as AI does not have many. All four dwarven artefacts are underground, protected by some garnisons, four of them. Maybe ai got one and that is why one of you was unable to find it. Pay attention to the "golden bow" it is directly south from the first underground portal,over the second one, about half a map, a little bit out of sight-pay attention, it makes your life alot easier.
by the way, in the fourth scenario, beat those dragons - I did it without losing anything (keep 1 alive and use resurection on the troups)and get the bow. you will not lose another troup untill the end of the map.

best campaign except for mages wich it is not finished yet so i do not know. this is great as it is my favourite faction. A little overpowerd, as usual.

it's a bug, just restart the mission, in about 4 weeks the demon biara should attack you, if you beat her you win.

Spoilers:

You have to 'bring the dawn', then you can fight him, and he'll be dead for sure. And how to bring the dawn...get those spectral dragons that are revealed after visiting eye of the magi.

Your borders will be attacked by necro hero (1st in 2nd week) with necro troops. As i remember 1 hero spawns in each week. In 4-5 week Biara should spawn and you will see short scene about demons attacking you and you will get ticked Hold Borders objective. (according to question i was attacked 3 times at borders ;D)

but if necro heroes doesn't spawn you can restart your mission ... and again ... till succeed (i had to restart it 2 times until i got unbugged map XD )



Really ? Lol . I was so mad that i deleted all my saving files (3 times restart and still that damn problem ) cause i thought i would have played again from the beginning . Thanks for ur answer , now i think i dont have to play that long journey again . Would u plz send me ur saving file at that time ? Now i dont have any , how sad . My mail : nhmgtvt@gmail.com

Im having some major problems with the last mission (5)

I have captured all the cities, found the tear of asha, killed all the spectral dragons so the dawn could come, and finished the seer quest to get the 5 phoenix.

Still nicolais army is so insane that i will never be able to kill it, he has a legion of spectral dragons (20k) and i do not know how he got them, one turn he had like 40 the next he got 20k, the rest of his army has a normal number of creatures. I didnt know what would happen when the dawn would come and i kinda hoped his army would get smaller thats why i kept on playing, but know I see it didnt.

The ai doesnt get defeated allthough i hold all the cities, so am I supposed to restart this annoying map that I used alot of hours on already? :/

I am stuck at the 2nd mission. The enemies always outnumbers me. At first I tried to build up a large army after I captured the first Inferno castle. But then the two other castles both have about double the units I have. Secondly I tried to conquer them as fast as possible, but I cannot even land on the shore of the middle sile because a horde level 6 academy creatures are too strong for me with my army. So I went to the third castle in the left bottom corner. But already now the enemy has outnumbered me and I have no chance to win this fights. What is my mistake?

To answer two questions that popped up here:
- The Hunt of Magi that reveals all dragons you have to kill is in the South corner of your starting location
- All 4 dwarf artifacts are underground

Using Talanar and Diares in final mission

Some of you have mentioned not using these 2 heroes, who carry over into the 5th mission, very much, and I was wondering why.

Both Talanar and Diares had Nature's Luck as a starting ability for me. They didn't have the prerequisite skills or abilities that would allow my main hero to get it, which gives them even more of a leg up: Diares, in particular, has neither Defense nor Luck, so this frees up her skill slots to learn all kinds of Magic Skills (Light, for e.g.). Coupled with her Sorcery skills (including Mana Regeneration and Counterspell), this makes her pretty strong. Talanar also had lots of free slots.

I was kinda excited when I saw they both had Nature's Luck, and I got to play around with it. It effectively doubles all combat damage (excluding spells and your own hero's attack), which is awesome. At the same time, I was a little pissed off that my own hero, Findan, could never get this, because he starts with Tactics and this messes up his Defense prerequisite.

Do Talanar and Diares always start with Nature's Luck, or was this a fluke?
