YES. I'm sososososososososoososososoossoossoso happy that the spring spirit was replaced and made a water elemental. It seriously needed to leave the naga faction. The earth elemental looks cool, and the boss battle looks absolutely epic. although I think it makes the field look rather small when a monster covers up like a quarter of the squares.

Erwan is easy to understand and pretty comfortable. Doesn't reveal anything groundbreaking but provides a nice background on how H6 came to be, choice of developer and so on.

Namtaru is an interesting boss. It looks like when she attacks some monsters surrounding her will suffer too.

Also she gets more than 15000 of damage (Enough to kill over 666 cerberus) and she is still fine.

260 Excruciator dealt 6060 damage points to Mother Namtaru;
321 Breeders dealt 1395;
270 Juggernaut dealt 3026.

Breeders are week in terms of melee attack.

A three-headed cerberus will be the boss of inferno, at least one of the, the worm being the second.

I just got a vision, just like I got that vision of the Kappa.

I hope you're wrong because I really want to see a ÜBER DEVIL as a boss.
Hmm but the worm one sounds interesting, I assume you're thinking about the one from that artwork with Sandor.

Yes, he is... I have meant Julien Pirou, but in the heat of translation, I have somehow swapped their names... my fault. Hope, he doesn't get angry at me

Can be the new interview found somewhere else? I don't have the fastest Internet connection and I am getting tired from the slow word-by-word loading :-/

I like the look of "Inferno land" in Heroes 6.
In Heroes 5 it was the worst possible terrain, so boring, just a lot of smoke and fire.

What I love most about all the new reveals, is that the whining factor on this board has been reduced to almost nothing! Thought I'd never see the day!
Now let's get that Naga reveal! ..on march 1st maybe?

Well, if they reveal a water elemental identical to the river spirit, even I will join the whiners.

But I think common sense will have its way, and nothing of the sort is stored of us.

Tears vs Blood is probably more about the flavour of the spells/abilities/actions then the direct effect of that spell/ability/action.

Example of where spells or abilities are likely to benefit from one system yet at a deeper level seem to be it's opposite.

A: Slow, is a debuff that reduces a creature's ability to cause harm, which is defensive in effect, it helps your creatures survive, yet it seems more likely to be a blood spell because it's in flavour assaulting a creature with dark magic causing it to slow down.

B: Similarly Purge is likely to be a Tears spell despite often being used to remove debuffs like slow, weakness or curse, in effect you are allowing your creature to cause more harm and damage, seems like a blood thing right? but it's probably a Tears spell because it's flavour is that you remove "unnatural" or "dark" magic from a target.

What I'm trying to say is: Whilst Blood might have more affinity for destruction, Tear related spells/abilities/actions can also have offensive effects and some Blood spells/abilities/actions could probably also be used defensively.

MrDragon may be on to something.


I just read the gamestar.de preview and they kinda confirmed MrDragon's theory



After Duke Gerhart's troops assaulted the friendly Orcs who were living in the Griffin Duchy, Slava prepared his army to help his Orcs friends. On his way, he meets an orc with an exclamation mark above his head (people playing MMORPGs know that this means a quest NPC )

The Orc is angry about Gerhart's attack on his people, but in the last attack, he and his troops managed to capture Gerhart's nephew. Slava must rescue the youngster as he can't afford his already bad relations with Gerhart to become even worse. Slava has 2 choices :

- The path of blood : Slava can slaughter the Orcs and free Gerhart's nephew
- The path of tears : The Orc agrees to free Gerhart's nephew if Slava frees the Orc colony from Gerhart's troops.

This kind of choice happens through the whole game.

The one who lets his enemies flee, the one who keeps healing his troops or using defensive spells and abilities on his troops, will be following the path of tears. On the other hand, the one who will be aggressive in every action he does will be following the path of blood. These choices aren't one-way only, it will be possible to combine your actions at any moment.

Yeah I have a really good feeling about the campaign this time around! It seems like a lot of thought and effort has been put into it, bosses and the blood/tears system will be fresh and interesting!
What I really like is how clean and slick the games interface feels, from battlefield to skill trees, it looks brilliant!

What a fantastic past 24 hours we have had on H6 news!

SKILL TREE SYSTEM:

Might The 5 new skills (paragon, realm, tactics, war cries and warfare) seem very cool. Love the tick box when you have an ability within the skills...

Magic It seems that Slava Griffin might have access to 5 schools (3 schools fire, earth and light are active). But cannot get access to the last 2 schools maybe because of being Haven Might hero (thinking Prime and Dark).

Unique Ability Fantastic that they are automatic (ie. don't have to spend ability points to unlock them) to a hero's level ups.

Chamber of Judgement is a town dwelling to obtain blood or tear abilities.

FACTION UNIQUE ABILITIES (on battlefield - from videos):

Necromancy (raise dead) Bar fills up when friendly AND enemy stacks take damage

Guardian angel (damage immunity) Bar fills up ONLY when friendly stacks take damage

Gating Bar is full at beginning for each stack, meaning stacks can gate straight away

SPELLS / OTHER

Town portal - is at basic level....hmmmm....maybe at expert level you can choose which town to teleport to...

Stand your ground - is a spell now

Battle screen Bottom right buttons have changed to look similar to the new adventure map buttons now. Good -> More space!

Sounds good! I was wondering how that gauge is going to be like and worried that it might be over-complicated. But it sounds now it's simple enough. What about the Blood Rage though? I guess the bar will be filling up when you deal damage to enemy units.

There's more to guardian angel and gating. Also gating didn't start with full bar.
