the world "Lilims" wouldn't occur. the word comes from hebrew and was originally "Lilit" and the plural would either be "Lilot"-femenine or "Lilim"-masculine.

So, you would just say, "I have twenty Lilim."

Umm... Probably an insider can confirm it... Is the Jaguar Warrior an Orc? Elvin? Cepheus? Anyone?

I'm pretty sure it's an Orc... I would like Ogres to look more like they should, if they ever appear.


Although there are Ogres in Ashan (Ogre Club, Ogre Shield...) I'm 90% sure it's an Orc simply because it's not called an Ogre. Something we agreed upon was to call "secondary" races like Vampire, Genie, Lich, etc... by their racial name.

Maybe "Panther/Jaguar" Orcs are Behemoths in disguise, or they just lost their hair

Quote:
Or merely random choice.

But still, the official artworks and site talk a lot about mages, so it's hard to not think that the 6th faction will be academy.
However there's no information about elves... that's sad.


Also, I hope that ingame the upgrades description won't be something like "X is the upgrade of Y"

Yeah, Erwan seems really cool.

I'm liking it a lot.  And if they play the way Erwan describes them, they'll be a hard faction to top.

I'd like to see a similar video describing the other three factions we officially know about, though.  That video was very informative, and I'd like to see more.

EDIT:  Also, definitely seeing some heroes without horses moving around the map there.  Players rejoice.

That was great and interesting! I hope they make more of those videos later on with the other factions.

The cyclops ingame looked awsome as the rest of the creatures. Really like the graphics and the environment of it all.

Check the News topic.

Nothing too surprising about the Orcs, like Elvin said, they seem pretty much like the H5 ones with the Wyvern replaced by Harpy. Pretty dissapointing, the Jaguar guy simply from my perspective, I hate the "small Orc/big Orc" thing, and we already have the Cyclops, which fills the role as big, lumbering hard-hitter. I should have really liked the Couatl instead.

Oh well. So the Orcs live in the Islands to the south as well? Or just some of them? That would mean a whole lot-a-nothing in the north-western plains (which would later become their home). Or maybe this is changing during the storyline?

They are different tribes i guess. On a map from H5 there were orc camps on three different places, and the timeline speaks of the orcs going in three directions.

Perhaps the Naga will drive them off from the Pao islands at some point during the campaign?

Orcish rebellion in the Seven Cities, which spreads to Haven. Rejecting their masters and the Dragon Gods, the Orcs declare themselves free. In the Falcon Empire, Crusades are declared against the Orcs – attempts to subjugate them and convert them back to dragon worship. The fighting is brutal, and the Orcs are relentlessly driven back. Eventually, the unrepentant survivors flee wherever they can, including the deserts of the south, the steppes of the north-east and the Barrier Islands of the east, A great storm sinks the Haven fleet that was prepared to follow the Orcs to their island refuge. The Falcon Emperor declares this a sign from the Dragons, and formally ends the Orcish Crusades.

Oh my God! There were so many things to spot on this video! Besides the in-game models of the Stronghold, there was also the Maniac and Tormentor among others, who both look totally amazing! I suppose now this should stop all those complaining about them looking like ghouls.

I really loved the animations, especially on the Mauler and Harpy!

But there's one thing that I really did not like: Why is there a Hero Orc walking on foot on the adventure map? This simply will not do. Insiders, please confirm this to be a work in progress and they're going to have mounds in game.

Sweet Jesus, that Cyclops is an absolute monster! Talk about battlefield presence!

Glad to see they're doing stuff like this, they should have been all along. The only thing that worries me is that the plot description they gave sounds exactly like "everyone vs Demons" again; I'm chalking that up to them not wanting to spoil anything.

There was almost nothing in this video, gameplay-wise. Although it was nice to see the animated models of some creatures, I hoped for some real game mechanics. Already! Mostly disappointing.
Anyway, at least we know that the Orcs will have Blood Rage. That's the only new information actually/.

Just seen the Stronghold reveal Vid.
As many of you know, I prefer Stronghold, it is my favorite faction. Orcs are my favoraite fantasy race of all times. And seeing this video makes me even more anxious to bash some skulls with the Orcs.

But to get serious the next time I see another comment similar to I would link that video to sum up your existence I will penalize. Take it easy sweety, there is no need for hostilities and negativity.


Awww and I was gonna link to a Statler and Waldorf vid sometime in the near future in a: "Regard their comments as my comments" style.

Hmmmmm, I like the video, sure the Cyclops is mighty (he looks little bit dumb on the battlefield standing like a statue under the weight of his coral-looking arm and doing bang with his other arm wihtout moving another muscle of his body).

What I fail to understand who is the ultimate villain of the story? The orcs are "good" because they fight to be free (thus it is strange why it is given so much empahasis on a band of ex-criminals that want freedom only because some guys have done DNA experiments on them but anyway), the necros are "good" too because they want to be left alone to learn about death and decay (The Academy is made to look bad, because they are the "oppresors" of both races - but in the times of CNN this is just ) Haven is righteous at least in this part of the sequel. Nagas are neutral forces lean to preserve order on the Ashas world. SO again the conflict will be between all vs. demons.

I feel nostalgia for the heroes 4 aligements which were the best part of the sequel and could define the actions of the factions so good. Now again we will have shadow intentions mixed for all nations and in fact it doesnt matter who for what fights, it is just killing and action in the end.  I hate when people are twisting the polarities in the fantasy world.

The Archangel Michael is the big bad evil. He wants to destroy the Griffin familly.

From what they said about Sandor, the way we'll play will have an influence on the end ("Will Sandor be a conqueror or a savior ? this is all up to the player")
