Good changes many of those here. Would have liked to see increased speed of Ghosts now they increased HP as well.

Also, remember, many of these things can be very easily modded. If you want something done - change marksman damage, change skeleton archer damage or HP, change necromancy ability, possibly even change (or remove) Klaus' special - ask around if anybody would care to make a small mod for you. Of course, there's always the online issue.

That all sounds good to me, but do they really need to nerf Phantom Forces, it really wasn't that great except against stupid AI and making it crappy only really succeeds in making academy more horrible.

- abilty "master of wrath" raises spell power by 4 for casting Curse of the Netherworld
- abilty "master of pain" raises spell power by 4 for casting Word of Light

I would assume those are reversed.

What I'm wondering is, did they fix what they broke with 1.2? Specifically how BFs would sometimes not return after striking and how the ATB bar is back to how it used to be.

Actually the blood fury not returning is not a bug.
It's a tactical manouver, just like forcing a shooter to do a melee attack.
And it's done the same way, hold down ctrl, and your fury will not come back after hit.

They are. The translation was messed up, the original German version has them in correct order. There are some other changes as well (unmentioned in the initial post):

The map editor comes with a short manual (excerpt from the full manual) accessible through the start menu, or directly in the folder where Heroes V is installed in a separate directory.

It seems the game no longer crashes when the game is saved while not enough diskspace is left on the harddisk.

A number of bugs related to Ghost mode were fixed, which would result in the game locking up.

"Land of the Outcast" has no unreachable objects anymore.
"Rise to Power" has no unreachable monsters anymore.

A Ghost can no longer see the exact number in an enemy creature stack, when the Hero in the army has the skill "Silent Stalker" (note: the German original is a bit sketchy; the way they put it currently it says that a Ghost cannot see any creature numbers in enemy stacks when an enemy Hero has this ability ... I assume it only applies to the army that the enemy Hero has, though).

Shalassas Ship will now function properly on Bridges and on certain beaches.

A Hero who uses the Angel's Wings can now continue his path with a single mouse click.

When a Hero moves through a Portal or a Whirlpool, his path will now be properly updated.

The German text of the creature transfer specifically mentions the spell "Summon Creatures". Using that spell will spend 75% of the Hero's movement points; when not enough points are available, the spell is not usable during that turn.

The Hero specialty "Cavalry Commander" (I think this is Klaus?) no longer applies its bonus for each square travelled, but rather to the total damage, which therefore results in overall lower damage.

The Hero specialty "Iron Maiden" raises the effective spellpower of the Fireball spell every 5 Hero levels by 1.

The "Swift Striker" ability now raises creature's initiative by 0.5% per Hero Level at the start of combat.

The "Reanimation" ability (Vladimir) now raises the effective spell level of the Raise Dead spell by 1 for every 5 Hero levels.

Spell effects are now processed together with animations.

When a Hero moves, the camera will now follow him, instead of remaining fixed on his starting spot.

Knights no longer disappear when they retaliate against Obsidian Gargoyles. (I'm not all too sure on this translation).

In the city overview, building textures will no longer disappear when a Town Hall or City Hall is built.

When changing into Ghost mode, the camera will follow the Ghost from then on.

Battle on Bridges is played out on the proper terrain now at all times.

After a battle against an enemy Hero, the information on captured Artifacts is blended in (?? I guess they mean they will give a screen with all captured Artifacts??).

A few tooltips in the Duel Lobby room have been changed.

In the Duel interface a Hero's portrait is no longer obscured by his or her level information.

Combat information with regards to the First Aid Tent has been corrected.

Combat information with regards to expected damage is now correctly displayed.

A number of informational texts in Ghost mode have been corrected.

In a city without a Hero, the extended tooltips for creatures are now visible as well.

In combat the game will now also show Tooltips for Wall sections and Towers, indicating remaining hitpoints.

In Hot-Seat mode, information from the other player is no longer shown.

Creatures belonging to Allied Heroes can no longer be dismissed.

Switching between the Heroes in the Tavern screen and in the information screen now works properly.

Allies can now see the map parts revealed by the Mage Towers and Observatories.

Several text corrections were implemented as well.

The patch text concludes with "and there is more ...", without going in further detail.

Yep that's a tactical movement. And only with this function you can kill 50 Hydras with 20 Blood Furies

BTW even without knowing how much have they nerfed Meteor Shower I think that's is a bad change. Destruptive Magic only had few spells that were worth learning.

Also does anybody know if Warlocks Luck rolls on Meteor Shower? Or just one-unit spells?

Yes, I agree that nerfing meteor shower is a really stupid move. Instead of doing that, why don't they improve the damage of implosion? The weakest school of magic just got even weaker. But most importantly, not removing puppet master when the unit is damaged is a ridicious move. Even if you can only cast puppet master on one unit it is ridiciously overpowering unless your opponent has light magic. I guess light magic and dark magic just got a lot more dominating over summoning and destruction magic. I must say that I am very unhappy with the proposed changes.

Maruice > Thanx for the excellent overview!

As for the comment on Phantom Forces - well they should nerf it! There's an entire topic here focusing on the problems with the spell, and I have to agree, having you opponent cloning his mages and then cloning the clone of the mages and the clone the clone of the clone of the mages, and have them have new spell points each time is pretty far fetched.

As for the Puppet Master thing, you can always discuss (with good justice I'd say) if the spell is overpowered or not - but at least, according to the spell description, it should not be disrupted on attack, and thus it's a bug they should fix.

And as for the nerfing of Meteor Shower, I don't feel any need for it either. I agree that Destructive Magic isn't a very attractive choice as it is, and the high level spells simply aren't as important in late game as they should be.

All in all, however, I think they did an excellent job with most of the fixes in this patch.
