A lot of people said that the campaigns are hard. my question is:
Even on easy? (I find that hard to believe)

First, I though the Computers were annoying in the demo.

Now, I'm happy the Computers "flee" when they truly should of won the battle.

The CPU was Lvl 17 Knight. I killed 1 Catapult, 8 Archangels, 8 Champions, 230 something Crossbowman, about 5-10 Inquisitor/Conscript with 2 Tamed Cyclops, about 50 Witch-Doctors split in 2 and 26 Sky Daughters split in 2.  

Man, its the best defensive-ranged attack I have ever done. My Cyclops were throwing the Witch-Doctors at them and my Sky Daughters constantly used Chain Lighting, with the help of "Sacrifice Goblin".

And the CPU was so dumb enough to kept its Archangels in Defense Mode after I killed the Champions and Crossbowmans.

I didn't notice any bug with Vorpal sword.

They have changed the way they display things like the storm lord hit and vorpal sword by displaying the regular attack as -x and the ability as -x, two seperate numbers.  Perhaps that confused you?

I'm investigating a bug myself I'd appreciate feedback.

The garden of the wee folk description says it gives gold or gems.

It never gave gems until 3.0.  Now it only gives gems.  Confirm?


oh is it,sorry my mistake.but there text bug in emerald's acid breath text,luckily,attack doesnt work same as priscmatic breath

It's harder than before, but if you could beat HoF on normal, you can definitely beat TotE on easy. I played through it all on hard, and only encountered a few frustrating moments and some final battles where I had to wait a week or two to gather a sufficient army.
On that note, the campaign finale fights are pretty challenging in a good way, as you can adapt to the enemy with memory mentors.

custom heroes are only possible through modding, and I don't know to which degree it is possible to create new specials that way.

Custom duel heroes is another matter entirely. You can pick one of the existing normal heroes and customize the army, skills and artifacts for him to be used in duels.

When a stack of Goblins (any of the three flavors) is hit in melee, while being cornered at the same time (having nowhere to run), they will retaliate the enemy instead. So, might want to corner the little buggers if they're in your army .

Most disappointing...

I fail to see why homm remains behind on this matter


How much more customization would you need? If it comes to graphics, as Nirual said, it can only be done thru modding (for example in LotA where they brought back Emilia Nighthaven and Solmyr). If it's about skills, apart from heroes' unique skill (even that can also be modded like in LotA - Solmyr's chainlightning for example), now we have Memory Mentor. It is somewhat late I say, I wish it had been there since the beginning so I can remove Findan's Tactics to get Nature's Luck. Other than that I don't see where we could go further in this.

Maybe an idea to learn to mod is interesting for you, that way you can use your own photo to create a customized hero like you wish

It gives either 5 Gems, or 500 Gold. I've seen both happen in my TotE games, so I'm happy they finally tackled that bug.

I don't think that a human player would go for your goblins first

the centaurs aint that bad. They are weak and dont gain much bloodrage.. And you actully forget the real killers. Warmongers, when they hit bloodrage 2! They are killing machines: Unlimited realitation ... They are lovely And I found a lvl 3 bloodrage goblin Witch doctor very good too.. Hexin and no enemy realitation. They are good

Still adding facts unknown by others.

Did anyone notice that HoMM5: Tribes of the East is, in an unfortunate fact, a completely redone HoMM5 game upto version 3.0? I surely did.

TotE is now, not an expansion at all. Instead of making a silly package called HoMM5:Complete, the devs decided to redo everything from the original unpatched version of 1.0 having all of the H.o.F. expansion features with Dark Elves + Dwarves then, add the Orc faction, all the 2nd upgrade alternative creatures for all factions and, then the storyline and the all new 5 Campaigns. As a surprise to us all, players, the devs also added to the RMG a big + to it: Tiny, Huge and, Impossible sizes of maps.

Not just a stand-alone, a complete redo of all three versions of HoMM5 and, all fixed up to version 3.0. As mentioned in the Readme, the known issues(bugs) are, now, being worked upon for the final patch of this awesome newest release.

Canada release: October 18th also. I picked it up at around 20:50:30 on Friday night(next day/19th) at FutureShop(Best-Buy's divisioned stores).

I, then, uninstalled both Original and H.o.F. Loaded up the T.o.t.E. game and, voilą, everything is there as promised it would be.

PLEASE NOTE: You will not have to input your new DVD/CD Key for T.o.t.E. if you had the Original and H.o.F. prior to installing this latest version of this same type of game. It will, instead, borrow and use one or both of the Keys already registered within your PCs Registry. Only the Clean Install of this HoMM5 v.3.0 game will be asking the person doing the installation for its DVD/CD Key(in the plastic case/box, bottom left corner of the booklet). The game should have come as a single DVD disk. Recommended specs are needed for the randomly generated maps at the size of Huge and Impossible(possibly for some extra-large with underground edited maps).

Enjoy HoMM5:T.o.t.E. to its fullest everyone.

Not exactly unknown but you are pretty much correct. One of these days I should get to finishing the campaign, it's been a good time so far

More seriously I'm having a great time.  There's plenty of new stuff to enjoy in ToE.  I even am able to mod with help from the modding forum.  So all in all
