Very Lucky and Strong Early Rush

I was playing around, generated a random map (2 player) to use.  I was random and was Infero with Marbus.  I found a treasure chest near by and leveled up immediately.  1st choice was Mark of the Damned!  I rushed nearest neighbor (was a neutral Necro town) and slaughted them.  Leveled up once or twice more and got vitality and evasion.

Here is where my strategy came in (was all just luck because of how the cards fell):

For creeping, I had a LOT of plague zombies, imps, and horned overseers.  With vitality, evasion, etc., I maximized Mark of the Damned!  Enemies kept hitting the tough zombies and overseers and getting smashed by the hero.

Around level 6 or 7 I received hellfire.  This combination of special abilities along with the tough, high unit count, allowed me to EASILY dominate the map.

Vitality is one of THE best abilities you can get because hit points work against EVERYTHING.  Other special abilities, like etherealness, does not work against spells.  Added hit points will always work.

Anyway, just thought I'd throw this out here (others have done this I'm sure) as a VERY effective strategy.  I just happened to stumble across it by luck, but it is quite possible to do this fairly often with an Inferno hero like Marbus.

Yes, Mark of the Damned can do wonders and Vitality is an excellent ability, i agree (maybe not that good for Dungeon but...)

you played random map, but what about a custom that was created by a computer, that would be harder

Vitality is the best for tier 1s. Evasion is not as good, but can reduce your loss during creeping against shooters.

I often wonder how people are able to dig through tons of threads just because they want to reply to someone who posted years ago

Commenting on his necromantic behaviour hasn't stopped him before, unfortunately
