The "Laser" beam is fine, I mean what did you want instead? that she shoots a ball of web from her behind?

And like Elvin says, she has two forms. So my bet is that she will have a melee attack in her "human form".

Actually, yes, I think that would have been both much more sensible and aestethic.

I think the in-game models of creatures are even better than their artworks, except for Glories, whose hair seem really bad in-game. In this Necro video again I'm surprised to see all the creatures look better than their artworks.

And I loved both the transformation and the green laser of the Weaver. Skeleton's death is perfect. I can only complain about Lamasu's attack, which is very simple. Like, if you put an actual lion there, it would also attack in the same way. The animation lacks the charisma of the unit itself. So with Succubus, I only have 2 dislikes for animations. All the others are great.

Oh joy, that's Nature's Luck just for Demons.

Yeah about that the Mark targets 1 creature, Natures Luck was effective on all Sylvan units against any target. Big difference. Hell no my Demons are not going to be OP... not that that's going to prevent them from overruning the other pathetic races of Ashan.

FOR THE GLORY OF SHEOGH!!

I think it's intended to basically be a Inferno version of necromancy.
Say your 100 Cerberi gate 40 Cerberi and neither suffers any losses, and say you keep... 20% of the gated units.
Then after the battle you'll have 108 Cerberi.

It only mentions "up to the original size of stack" so you would only have a max of 100 Cerberi after combat, not 108.

I think I would much prefer the spider to melee with it's 8 huge legs walking along looking scary, and the human form to be the laser beam shooter.....

Well, think about Titans in H5. With that huge body you would first thing they are melee and gonna tremple other units but they are shooters. But like every shooter they also have their melee attack. And that melee attack is the first predicted tremple thing So maybe Weaver's melee is also something like you imagine?

I also think,that the fate weaver is a shooter and that she has a unique melee animation,including her spider limbs(after all,all shooter units had this in H5).
I like especially the animation of the skeleton and I think,the transformation of the weaver looks ok,since it should be fast.

I wonder if the fate weaver's transformation takes a full turn......

Still think the "human form" should be the shooter and the "spider form" to be an all-out-attacking-all-nearby-enemy-stacks kind of vibe.....cos it has 8 legs....and spiders are freaky! A shooting titan is one thing, but a shooting spider is like a melee master hunter! Still it does look cool....

I don't know, maybe it is a "conditional" range attack, not a pure one. I used a lot in my fan-faction entry: Here

Sorry for the bad Adv. but Yeah, I hope it is just another conditional range attack or some spell.

It being fast is the most important thing for me. I hated in H5 when you had full speed on creature movement, yet the spell-casting-animation for the wizards took as long as three other creatures to act. I hope we won't have that kind of thing in H6.

this just come to my mind for a while. The all corny cheesy "Asha uses all" and "Griffin eternal!" are actually remind me of something. It maybe either Nival or Ubi effort to create memorable quote like the ones in Blizzard "En taro Adun!" by Protoss (which means "In honor of Adun!" CMIIW). But well the effort is failed miserably because either the bad voice act or it is simply corny.

PS: I have a lot in mind lately so please excuse my weird comments.

I wouldn't go to Blizzard for originality.
Besides, it seems way hammier than that.
I think GRIFFIN ETERNAL is their version of FOR THE EMPEROR / BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD, or it may very well just be their take on war cries in general.

@Avirosb: I am not talking about originality, I am talking about how Blizzard successfully "popularize" their in-game quote and make them memorable to their fans. Something like "En taro Adun!" that feels epic and not cheesy or even the simple "ZUG ZUG!" (I remembered how those Blizzard Fanboy yelling "En Taro Blizzard!" at the announcement of SC2). What I am trying to say, the previous Heroes V team might have the similar idea, to create a memorable quotes out of their game with "GRIFFIN ETERNAL!" or "Asha uses all!" but well it didn't turn out well, I presume.

I don't think I've ever heard those Blizzard phrases before nor do I think they are popular outside of Blizzard games.
