Hi guys.
I really need help.
I've been underground, got all the cities , killed Nicolai once , Biara fled before I could get to her.
I got the phoenixes.
I don't know how to get in the western part of the map. I have no boat , and no portal goes there ...  The instant travel doesn't take me there.
Can you please help me and tell me how can I get in the western part of the surface map ?

Pretty sure you get there by underground. This may help.

Mission two is quite a pain in the ass on Heroic I've noticed. That Deleb is a nightmare after a month or so considering they've got three towns that seem to be fully built within a week, add to that her devastating ballista that kicks your Master Hunters' asses. Ressurection if sort of out of the queston too seeing as her familiars drain Findan's mana in an instant.

Managed to defeat her rather early now though, ending up occupying the town on the island in the middle. They've got two other strong heroes though, out of which Alastor is on the move now, not sure how to counter him.

Having her out of the equation makes thing considerably easier though, so I suggest takin her out as soon as you can. The method I used was to lure her to my town by only having my week 1 and 2 units, leaving the week 3 ones yet to be recruited. She saw her chance to get me early on and came for me, whereas I recruited everything I had and managed to get her down by feeding my druids' mana to Findan for resurrecting.

So far, I'm feeling OK (only on normal, I am seroius noob). Playing with TOE, so I have AAs instead of mustard hunters.
Findan's build:
Exp.Avenger - Deadeye
Attack - Tactics, Archery, Flaming (that's why I carry a Ballista)
Log - Stalker, Pathfinding, Deadmarch
Exp.Luck - Resist, SL (even if Resist is not too good, I took it rather than the even less useful Resourcefulness)
Light - Wrath, Blessings, Stormwind
Dark - Mind, Shrug, Seal
Without arties 19-17-18-19

Unfortunately, got Sandals of the Saint instead of the Cloak but with weakening dark perks, it's not a total loss at least.
I didn't take the bow, because of AAs.
Luckily, I have all good spells (Reg on dragons saved my ass many times in M3, and divine fragrance is also a good weapon with resu) except teleport and vampire touch (wouldn't help much in fact)
1 stack of spectrals is down, I'm going for the second one this day, Shield at Findan. (because of TOE, I am quite dedicated to get all of them and still finish the dragons)
Got 2. necrotown on 2.1.2
Confusingly, Nicolai is very passive, I haven't even seen him around, just Vladi around the northern stack.

To help the poor AI I think the campaign makes it clear that you cannot cross.

u sure..?? this sux..kills me to see those power-ups unvisited.. ok..so here's the main catch..i think there are 4 primary objectives and 1 secondary..
Hold the Borders - this is achieveable
Findan must survive - like..duh..
Destroy demon's army - another duh..
Regain border - Also achieveable..
If achieved they put a "cross" in the box..so..HOW DO U ACHIEVE THE "DO NOT CROSS BORDERS" OBJECTIVE so that they put the "cross" in the box too..and SOMEWAY SOMEHOW..Findan could then actually cross the border..?
is this possible..? help please..

Hey, did anyone have problems with the battles being much too bright on the last mission?  I tried changing the brightness on my computer, the screen resolution, It was so bad by the end of the game that I could hardly see the creatures on the battlefield!

Yuck! I even started the game over with a new campaign, and it was the same thing.

hi, and sorry if I'm going out of topic... but I've got a problem in the 5th mission of the sylvan campaign...
I've read that there should be an eternal night all over the mission.. but all I see is that most of the items all around the map are more brilliant, and I got a weird light in the battle field...
I'll try to post a screen shot once I'm home...
anyway, is that strange light the famous "eternal night" or did I got a problem with the game?


Same problem here. Even though it's supposed to be night the main map on "The Vampire Lord" isn't much darker than usual, but the combat screen is always ultra-bright to the point where it's washed out. I've tried adjusting everything, from the monitor to the game (brightness, contrast, gamma correction) but nothing works very well. The unfortunate compromise is switching to a darker setting during the battles (so I can actually see who's fighting who). and back to a brighter setting on the main map. A serious pain in the tuckus.

I am playing v1.6 of Heroes 5; not sure if this problem was supposed to have been addressed in a patch or anything (it sure doesn't seem like it was). Too bad, because playing this map is a serious chore.

Can someone can plz give me a tip or something because i think im stuck at the campaign when i have to rescue those two sylvan heroes , ive managed to rescuse the one from the underground but the other one is guarded by a legion of emerald dragons and i cannot beat them .
I tried to hire a hero from necropolis and use dark magic such as frenzy or puppet master but no mage guild could teach them that..
So as the days pass their growth is much more higher than my 3 castles summed : 2sylvan and 1 necro...
Help!

Hi NutzuCamataru.
You can use 2 vampires + last stand + raise dead. The idea is: you cast raise dead on your vampires enough times to bring their maximum hitpoints down to 1. Then they stand in the corner and keep waiting. Use a couple of ghosts to help you survive until that point.
Now you only need to find a way for the battle not to take forever. Don't forget about mark of the necromancer. CotN and decay can help you somewhat(some of the dragons will wait), but it may still take a while if there is a legion of dragons. You could try to make them hit eachother with firebreath. Blade barrier might be of some help if you are playing this campaign under TotE.

Thanks, i got the point , but sounds a little bit of insane solution but it still is one... to be precise there are 4k emerald dragons in 4 staks 1k in each one... i think ill try.. but in the end suppose ill defeat 3k dragons there will still remain about 1k do defeat without the help from the other dragons (breath atack) :-ss

Well, I don't recall those thousands of dragons either, though I don't think I have played this campaign on heroic. To the point: while decay doesn't work on emerald dragons, firewall does and another way to speed things up is to take more vampires plus divine vengeance into battle(only under TotE?). Vampirism, righteous might, valnerability, attack skill and attribute, luck and possibly deep freeze(if you have DV and many vampires you may want them to regenerate more forces between two dragon attacks) can help dragons gain frags faster. A good week(like week of might and magic) or (vampired or blocked, so that they can survive) high druids can also help you in this battle.

the campaign its in heroes 5 classic.. so i dont think i can get spells like divine vengeance or vampirism..and because of the dragons high initiative and speed after the 4 staks of dragons atack i am only left with 2 or 3 staks maximum.. which are totally useless against 4k dragons... get it?
In conclusion i think ill restart the campaign and atack them much earlyer.

Hi Nutzu Camataru, my advice is that after you capture the first sylvan town you might want to look at your losses because you want to keep as many units alive as possible. Then remain with Findan about a week or two to defend it after which you place Treants,Unicorns and Druids to defend it along with another hero. Then you go south and capture the 2nd town which didn't be that difficult if I remember. Some necro heroes may appear but they didn't attack me. From here you can reinforce your troops with the ones from the 2nd sylvan town and if you want go to the first one(Sirys Talla) I think it's called and get the same units but leave Unicorns,Treants and Druids. Now you should go south and have almost no problem with the necro armies and heroes down there. One hero is in the underground and another is somewhere to the west guarded by some creatures but I can't remember what, I think Pit lords or Wights
