Is there a way to max out blood before the end of the second scenario? So far, my best attempts have left me at missing 100 points.

I didn't reach it. But if you mean to have it for the quest that asks you to reach it, you can rest easy. The quest transfers over to the next mission, where you can complete it anyway.

Hey, I'm on the third map and I'm getting raped when I'm underground trying to kill the demons. Every round I get hit by some meteorite thingy that does like 350 dmg to all my stacks. Since it takes like a week to get to the enemy castle that's alot of troops. I can't see anything about it in the log or anywhere else. This is really frustrating, can someone explain whats happening?

oh and i guess its a bug but when a stack dies from it, it doesnt disappear, it just says there are 0 of them

You can pretty much almost always max out if you spam enough spells of blood/tears. But that's veeeery tiresome, inefficient and often mana-costly.

Hmm when i played my Necro 1 campaign i struggle with the Mass reqruitment quest that requires you go go and find 5 Mass graves and resurect undead. now i have visited all four but wile visiting the one in the bottom left of the map i ran out of movement points after visiting it but before the popup that actually raised the dead. so now i have visited the massgrave and raised the undead and eventho all 5 mass graves are now unaccessable my quest counter only shows 4/5 loading game is not an option since right after i had to chase the npc off my land for about 3 weeks. dous anyone know how to fix this? Or am i just doing something stupidly wrong?

-ps Life drain is awesomee

There's an adventure building somewhere in the middle of the southern part of the tunnels, near the place where you have the three-way split. That building - I forgot its name - gives you the Meteor Storm ability for your next combat, at every turn in that combat.

I ran into that one as well ... rather painful. I was glad I had that structure in my towns with which I could re-recruit the fallen units.

Funny.. when I got into a battle with an enemy hero with this buff, he casted it like 10 times in row in the first round... I thought he will continue to cast it until I die

The thing that does around 350 damage every round is one of the demon unique buildings, it does so every turn non stop ( its not the hero ).

Anyways, how many maps are there with anastasia?

Just a little handy tip I found while messing around with the Necro 3rd campaign.

=============
spoilers (duh)
=============

Edit: this is referring to the castle where you get the vampires when you initiated the orcs to attack.

1. After defeating the orcs you can turn the quest in with any character. I believe if it is turned in by a secondary hero you will not get the castle (not for sure tho). I do know that if an enemy comes, they can seize the castle then you can take it right back. Basically you can have 4 castles and I think 4-5 garrisons from the main island.

============
end spoilers
============

(More a general concept to starting with necro)
2. This point was discussed in the Necro strategy section as well, but I think it deserves to be reiterated. An awesome starting strategy for creeping involves 3 equal stacks of ghosts and a stack of skeletons.

X - skeles
O - ghost stack (equal numbers, i.e. 3-3-3 instead of 9)

---
X O
O O

This strategy requires tactician, but it is well worth the point in general.

The goal here is that the ghosts will spam Defend while the skeletons range down the enemies. Because the ghosts haven't officially moved they retain their 50% reduced damage buff as well as +defense from hitting Defend. They are amazing shields. Near the end of combat just use the ghosts to heal each other up. They will probably be ok from their reduced damage and the occasional necro res spell.

I had the same problem when I arrived to inferno castle  because of this meteorite defensive building. I had killed 3 "high" rated heroes on the way to the castle and there were two more waiting for me at the castle. Finally I decided to skip it and go north. On enemy's turn one hero went south and the other left the castle and fought me. After killing him I took the castle. It was much easier since there was no hero and not a lot of creatures, I took the castle in 4 rounds but of course 355 damage x 4 times that hurts. On next turn the other hero who went south rushed to the castle and tried to take it. I managed somehow surviving with only 10 lichs and 20 ghouls thanks to life drain , a must in the necro campaign.

Yeah i guessed it was something like that, so frustrating when it doesn't even show anywhere and when I check my troops and half of them are dead

Sooo I encountered a strange bug during this campaign. I beat Kiril in Anastasia's mind and then she talks with herself BUT nothing more happens...
I go to Jorgen to proceed - I can't! What do?

Check the quest details. It could be that you need to do something else yet, before Jorgen can move you further.

SPOILERS!

I was almost ready to level up, just before I talked to Mother Namtaru. So I saved, just in case, and talked to her. This sends me to the dream journey.

Will I be able to come back for the free level up later? Or should I man up, load the game, and just deal with the fact that my free level is pretty much wasted?

Also, does anyone know what the level cap is in the campaigns? Is it universal pattern in all the campaigns? Like Anastasia's first map was level 10.

I like to pick things that increase experience, but I capped out pretty early in Anastasia's first map. All my experience after that was wasted.  So I would have been better off choosing gold sometimes, or maybe a different ability. I could have at least used artifacts that did things other than increase my experience.

Pretty much no experience is wasted before you've completed like... almost all campaign maps.

- Because you still gain dynasty experience
- Because you still gain dynasty weapons experience.


Unless you play offline, in which case: Yeah, gold.

I have the incredibly small electronic manual. I will check out the fan manual (hoping it is more detailed). I like to know the fomulas used in the game. If you can't tell, I one of those number cruncher geeks (despite the surly beard on my avatar) who like to understand how everything interacts so I can exploit it.

I still haven't fully figured out the rate of dynasty experience and dynasty weapon experience. Are these things affected by items and skills that increase your character's experience? I thought the character's experience gain seemed to coincide with, yet remain independent from the dynasty/weapon experience. I would like to know what causes these other two to increase and at what rate.

Also, as a side note, I seem to gain dynasty experience at a far greater rate playing campaign than when playing hot-seat with my wife. even though we both play using my dynasty heroes. Once, I even had a 4 player hot-seat going, but the gain is much slower than campaign. (And yes, I am aware that you are not completing campaign objectives in hot-seat games. The hot-seat games are still played with me online.)

You have larger armies (or more importantly: FACE larger armies) both neutrals and others, actual missions and boss fights in campaigns.

Oh and you don't get dynasty experience for quick combats, just fyi.

I'm begging someone to tell me where are the four Shantiri Discs in the last map. So far I have found only 3 and I think that without the four that gives more army it's impossible to kill Uriel - boss fights suck! So please - can someone tell me where they are?
