@Carcity:You should go straight for the second castle after you've taken the ore and wood mine.Hire a second hero two often reinforce Arantir or if you see a weak enemy hero aproaching stay and defend the castle.Don't necesarily take the castle right now.There is a zombie which tells you to go underground.There you'll find vampires that will join you.There are also necro outposts from where you'll recruit vampires.Now that you have like 30 vampire princes or lords(can't remember)you should capture them without losses.Now you should be ready for those heroes if they attack again(Also capture the second town if you want but there are almost no creature dwellings so do as you wish).There are also a few more glitches to this map but I'm sure you'll figure them out.

Does the AI use "mark of the necromancer" i had quick combat a time and it defeated 100 untamed cyclops with the loss of 1 skeleton and two bone dragons. The army  ahd was 7 BD and 1 skeleton. Also last stand with arantir had been good, since you can make many raids with the Phoenix and Avatar. Then the enemy must hit you one extra time to kill as stack

Beating Mission 2:

The academy heroes are pretty tough but with good strategy they're beatable.
1: Make sure you have high level dark magic : puppet master and frenzy
2: Visit underground near second necro castle, vampires will join you there
3: Buy/equip good artifacts that give SP and KNOWLEDGE mostly
4: Have some skelleton warior upgrades, they will shield your troops from ranged damage.

The battle strategy:

Don't rush it, best thing to do here is defend and let him come for you. If you advance the powerfull ranged stacks will bring your troops down very fast. Deal with the ranged stacks with magic and your own ranged shooters (liches/skeleton archers).

First frenzy/puppet the gremlins, mages or genies to make sure one of the ranged stacks goes down. Then summon your avatar and rush him to fight the titans or another dangerous ranged stack. Keep defending with the rest of your troops and using frenzy/puppet while your ranged stacks shoot. If you start to have low mana mark of the necromancer is a good idea. After a while most of his ranged will be gone and he'll come for you to mellee with rakshas rani and golems, let them come and then engage them with what your avatar vampires and wights.

Good luck

You mean that town where you are specifically told not to attack because it is too strong? It is possible but don't try, it wasted more than half an hour of my life trying to kill the remaining cyclopses with 2 ghosts and my spell arsenal

Just check the objectives, the town is not meant to be taken except for those that really want the challenge.

infact the battle is easy with rigth spells.but yes,killing the cyclops gets booring.

I think you get staff of the netherworld on the second or possibly third.When I finished it I had all four artifacts to form Deaths Embrace.

Well you destroy the barrier by putting 4 necromancers(including Ornella) in those 4 weird shrines(if you can call them that).If no more heroes are available you should restart.My advice is to go around the map with only Ornella and Arantir,don't hire any other heroes untill no more inferno heroes are spawning and all red haven castles are captured(oh and take the assasins offer,trust me).Then the magical barrier above the garrison dissapears and you continue on to Flamschrein.Watch out for Orlando.he has a crazy ballista that can take out 16 Seraphs at once.

My advie is to get haven creatures since you have 4 haven castles,and there are some tier 7 units on the map like untamed or dragons,if you want some necro creatures like wraiths or specs harvest them but only one stack per week(you don't have enough dark energy.)

I had Seraphs(46),Champions(40),Crossbowmen(600+),Zealots(130+),Archliches(not sure),Imperial Griffins and Vampire princes.

I totally wished i saved my battle with that huge yellow town on mission 4. Those bloodeyed cyclops gave me a run but on my third run i figured out the perfect strategy.

step 1: eliminate all other units as quick as possible using any means necessary (something like puppet master and frenzy). dont be afraid to take your losses. also as a side note u can mark of the necromancer his earthblood daughter things.

step 2: once all the other units other than cyclops are eliminated have at least 2 unit groups and have them opposite side of the board (hopefully u have like wraiths or something they r very good against hero attacks). now the next part is up to you, you can arcane armor your wraiths or units getting attacked by hero. now use raise dead, blind and fire trap, and maneveur your units so that the cyclops cant ever hit them and if he gets close use blind. and keep laying loads of firetraps. (obvoiusly use mark of the necromancer on the cyclops for unlimited mana). thats it, took me an hour and half but was worth it for the experience and i flew through mission 5
