The voice acting is decent enough, but I hate that bird.
I actually rather like Slava (minus the name, think I'll just call him Slave from now on); his in-game model reminds me of Bruce Campbell in a chinny chin chin-esque way.

I hope they've fixed the lackluster sound effects in the demo, I think the ghosts and succubi share the same "death noise".

Liked it too. Since I'm a slowpoke and like to take my time, finishing demo took me around 5-6 hours and I really enjoyed it. As for the voice acting, Slava annoys the crap out of me but luckily Kraal is pretty decent, a bit to "civilized" sometimes, but I like his attitude

Excluding neutral spells we can see spell schools leading towards blood or tears (especially light magic towards tears):

Light magic -> 82% tears
Earth magic -> 70% tears
Water magic -> 56% tears

Dark magic -> 67% blood
Fire magic -> 64% blood
Air magic -> 57% blood

Prime -> mostly neutral spells

Yes I am hoping that the schools will be equalized a bit as soon as new spells are added. PS I love Slava and Kraal's voice actor Add to it that nostalgic tune and it all falls into place.

Kraals voice actor was horrible. How much cliché can you throw into the concept of an Orc that doesn't speak very well? Boring. But Sveltana's actor did an outstanding job.

I love most of the voices, especially Irina and Anton (from the trailer), but I particularly hate the Nagas which feel like listening to a text-to-speech software

Some dialogs are a bit over the top (like the Orc jokes which are just ridiculous) or quite insipid (like the ending of Irina's campaign map), but generally, it's pleasant to listen/read and the story feels like it could be very interesting.

I think the chance for that is relatively nonexistent. But one can have hopes for the future eh?

Not sure if many spells will get added in future, maybe two or three....

Just on this whole blood and tears thing with spells, would it be worthwhile going for light magic if you go for haven magic hero and blood route? I think yes cos my understanding is that the light magic spells will still cast efficiently, but just not as efficient as tears route...(since most light spells are tears)

Your main issue would be about gaining enough blood points to reach the blood classes. You can gain up to 5 rep points per combat (in x1 settings) and you'll gain points from the spells you'll cast the first. If you cast Retribution Aura in turn 1, then Celestial Armor in turn 2 and Healing in turn 3, that would already make 3 tears points (or rather 3 wasted blood points).

Yes, but can blood magic hero benefit, with his high hero level, the effect of the tear spells?

That's hardly a dilemma anyway, Haven are predisposed to the Tear path. Like the majority of the factions/hero classes. Most of the Blood classes are considerably inferior to their Tear counterparts in terms of efficiency and you are hardly motivated to follow the Blood path. Rejoice and leave the neutrals flee at will.

How does one increase reputation points:

1. Fighting a battle (blood) or letting them flee (tears)
2. By the use of active spells/warcries for each reputation during combat?
3. Campaign - story driven

Are there any other ways to increase points? Maybe point 2 above is also not correct.....

It seems that the tears path will take longer, as it will be a while before neutrals flee from you (when you have a big army)...

@Zenofex -> Is tears really better than blood?

I see a lot of complaints about high level spell damage being low.
Imo tier 3 spell masteries should be added +% spell damage, to the + 3 magic damage they already give.
This way magic heroes would be more distinct from might heroes, while magic damage creatures won't become overpowered.

Adventure building? you mean Skills/Abilities building (Paragon)?

But choosing attack skill won't increase the blood points immediately, only when you "use" it in battle?

I mean adventure map buildings:

There is a building where you should choose attack or defense. As I know this choice gives you either blood or tear points.
