I don't see why a Stronghold hero can't go on a tears path for example

 Quest Destroy enslavers or ignore them because your mission at hand has priority and let them enslave a creature for the first you get blood for second get tear, after the fight the slavers ask for mercy you destroy them you get blood you hear them out and discover they ware forced into it you get tears, they then ask you to help them remove the cause that forced them to practice slavery get tear or ignore them because you mission is far more important blood ... etc.

  This missions can be used for almost any race and fits for all type of heroes, so again don't see why the stronghold can't develop a tears type hero,  all this being deduced from the Q&A.

I think the necromancers architects should be richly rewarded for their awesome work!
Seriously the Necropolis all buildings looks stunning.(It's nice to see that they at least haven taken that from Dark Messiah, as opposed to the horrible style in H5)

And yeah the reputation system sounds awesome.
Can wait to get myself a Tear Barbarian, after all being defensive with Stronghold in H5 was amazing, I imagine it to be the same in H6.

This Blood or Tears choice sounds so fun! now I really want to play.
Dragon Tears, Dragon Blood. It's cool, but the crystals are Dragon Blood.
Maybe in Heroes 7, they'll introduce Dragon Sweat.

Never had any aspiration for Hungarian

Which is kinda ironic because it is closest foreign country to where i live (like 80km air line). I don't know a single word of it. (well unless you count the stew names which are picked from Hungarian even here)

Btw, necromancer advanced classes are Embalmer and Reaper.

At the German site pcgames.de is a preview about MMH6. If you like I can see if I'm able to translate it into proper English

So here is a little Summary:
they played the prologe, which is also the tutorial. This prologe consists of 2 parts and is about the conflict between Duke Slava and his rival(neighbour?) Gerhart. Gehart is hunting the Orcs which are living at this country.
Cutscenes are used, showing for example the banishment(? sry, my english isn't too good) of the Orcs. The graphics seems to be pretty good, but the Voice-Over and the Lipsync are still lacking.
They say the Adventure-Map is already really good, causing this "HOMM-Addiction", improved by the new RPG-elements. The AreaOfControl-Feature is making especially the Multiplayergames more dynamik.
They confirm, that every the creatures are going into a "pool", so all creatures can be recruited in every town or fort. So caravans are not longer needed. But they fear that with the convertion of towns there will be too many creatures at a time to recruit (BlackHole seems to be still working on balancing).
As an example for the reputation system is a quest mentioned, where an orc keeps a child as hostage now you can simply kill the orc or rescue a besieged orc-lair.
The Bossfight against Mother Namtaru is played with Demons. Namtaru is summoning ghosts to heal herself. Also here the balancing isn't completed yet and the battle was won too easy.
About the Magic system is said, there are 7 schools (4 Elemental, light, darknes, primordial). These are Divided into 3 Tiers. Tier 1 is available for every Hero. Tier 2 is unlocked at level 20, tier 2 at level 30. Level 30 is the Toplevel.

In regards to these skill trees, do they definitely change based on your faction, or does every faction have the same pool to choose from? I'm not talking about the Hero Ability Tree that appears to be faction-specific, I'm refering to the Might Tree and the Magic Tree.

oh, sorry. yeah thats my mistake
"tier 2 is unlocked at level 10, tier 3 at level 20".

also one thing i just saw: they say as a "rightous" (maybe tear) knight (heaven-might) you will be able to gain the ability "guardian angel" and "martyr", the second gains a bonus when friendly creatures died, might be similar to the creature ability "enraged" form HOMM V.

The best resolution from the screenshot with the waterelemental/river spirit/ whatever:

I think the left one is a river spirit ( it's very similar to the artworks) and the right maybe a snow maiden (it's more white while the other one is more bluish. also it looks like it's wearing that asian thing/kimono or how it is called, it has the characteristic sleeves).

The big thing could be an earth elemental.

There are two advanced classes for each basic class, right? But there are 2 abilities linked to the class, according do the chamber of judgment picture.
So that means that even after you achieve the blood or tear threshold for obtaining an advanced class, you still can get more in order to unlock another skill within that advanced class, sort of Knight -> Paladin with Martyr -> Paladin with "I'll burn your head" skill?
