[Spoilers] Datamined second DLC info

Currently, the Data12.orc file contains some info about the next DLC, which was either not taken care of, or simply left as a sort of teasing. Whatever the case, here's what is found so far.


This file hints at the possible boss creature.


This is the new Dynasty weapon, which you may remember from Heroes V

Mamaich, the creator of the orc2zip tool, has managed to find the name for the DLC in one of the flash menu files, it's "Dance Macabre". Unfortunately I can't open any of those, but here's the screenshot with the editor giving out a spoiler:


And here are the texts for the heroes and creatures we have so far. Thanks goes to Shukfir for taking them out. If you want localisation files to check the texts by yourself, tell me here and I'll put them on some filehosting.

Dragonwraith
Even lesser Dragons remain powerful magical creatures, and terrifying foes. It’s no surprise, then, that from the very first days of the Spider Cult, the Necromancers have tried to find a way to resurrect fallen Dragons as their Undead servants. Asha uses all, after all, even her own children! Unfortunately, their efforts remained unsuccessful for decades, until Belketh, the founder and Great Archon of the Cult, understood the reason for their collective failure. Dragons exist both in the material and spirit worlds, he realized, so to raise such a creature from the dead a Necromancer must first locate and dominate the Dragon’s spirit form. The ghostly Dragonwraith is the result of Belketh’s experiments and the pride of his armies.

Lucretia
First child of a minor Count of the Bull Duchy, the beautiful and ambitious Lucretia dela Segadora gained both influence and power at the Duke's court. The nature of her relationship with the Duke was the topic of much speculation and gossip and irked many, including the Duke's heir, Ovidio. True or not, these rumours proved her undoing: when the old Duke was killed, she was one of the prime suspects and Ovidio was quick to remove her from the court. Lucretia was stripped of her rank as Countess in favour of her younger brother Giovanni, leaving the young woman embittered but powerless. This is when a mysterious Necromancer named Sandro made her an offer she couldn't refuse.

Giovanni
Giovanni dela Segadora both admired and harboured a venomous jealousy towards his sister, Lucretia, because she was first-born and he was not. Believing himself to be more competent than his sister in all domains, he used the death of the old Duke of Bull and the rise of his heir Ovidio as an opportunity to destroy Lucretia's reputation and title, in effect causing her exile from the court. In the wake of Lucretia's fall from grace, Giovanni was not above seducing Ovidio to obtain what he wanted most: power.

Ovidio
First son of the Duke of Bull, Ovidio may not have been the best fit to become the next ruler of the Duchy but his birthright assured he would be. While his brothers Eduardo and Fernando had become priests of Elrath, Ovidio was far from a paragon of virtue. Irritable, lazy, and determined to taste all the flavours life has to offer, Ovidio is seen as depraved by many citizens of the Duchy, while the nobles are too busy participating to his wild orgies to pass judgment.

Merikh
Merikh was once a Mageblade. After a long and dutiful service in the Wizard armies, Merikh became a law enforcer during peace time, tracking criminals and delivering justice. At first, Merikh took pride in his work, but as he grew older his enthusiam started to wane, eventually replaced by a deep depression. There were so many unresolved crimes, so many criminals at large, and so little time... This is how he was seduced by the Spider Cult and its gift of immortality. Unfortunately, becoming Undead also destroyed his regards for life, turning him into a merciless executioner. Merikh quickly rose among the ranks of the Necromancers, soon becoming Belketh's personal agent.

Corak
Corak is not known as "the Mysterious" for nothing: little is known about his past. He has travelled among the stars, through countless worlds, meeting their denizens and charting their lands. In truth, Corak is a Guardian, an advanced being created by the Ancients to oversee their Great Experiment. Corak's journey has one secret purpose: to track down the rogue Guardian Sheltem.

Cool. Seems to have a more serious theme than the Pirates DLC.

I just hope that we won't will get these for 5 years and then a real expansion.

Yes, about the heroes, I was in the map editor and I did find Corak and lord XEEN, though they have no portrait ^^, do you think it's possible to give them one ?

edit: I also find Sandro as a blood necromancer (I mean one on the way of blood ^^)

edit2: and Sheltem as a magic inferno hero (I don't recall the name :S)

(FYI, Corak is a monk and lord XEEN a death knight ^^)

This DLC spoilers are good news and bad news at the same. Good because the content seems interesting. Bad news is, that this "game expansion" philosophy shows that Ubi want's to milk us the way most other big game companies do these days, by giving small things which should be free, and are quite costly instead. Chances for a full-fledged expansion are going further away, and the game really needs at least two more races...

I'm eagerly awaiting news about an expansion pack, yet what I'm getting are some small fill-ups.

it sounds like the new DLC will contain Bone Dragons, like in previous HoMM games, but as a boss creature.

i remember the quote "Limbic can not produce full scale content" therefore i fear, this bone dragon, will be just like the thunderbird, a mere re-coloration. maybe a skinless Kirin or so.

i think they are going to release a campaign DLC for each faction. chances are high this DLC again will have only 2 maps. but i don't know, maybe they learn from the former mistakes, eventhough i know it's Ubisoft we are talking about...

i hope there will be at least 2 proper expansions though, with 2 factions each. and not in 2-3 years, but relatively soon.

Ohhh.. Limbic.. You do not know this communit well do you. We love to digg in source files.

Looks like a nice return of some heroes from Heroes V and another Legacy map, this time placed into the land of Xeen. Following this rule, the third DLC will bring Enroth and forth Axeoth

Funny how they just do not understand that the only way how to keep secrets from us is not to put them into the game, if they are not used.

I will wait till one of the Insiders gives an aproval to spread the info, and then post it to my local website

Relax MeanMan.

And you said 2 expansions with two factions each expansion, and historically that's equal to two expansions in one (in all expansions of HoM&M you got at most one faction)

are you some sort of idiot? do you want to provoke me? shut the f*ck up, what are you even talking about? two expansions for the price of one? what? don't put words in my mouth you stupid kid.

if there really should be two expansions with two faction each, i of course expect a higher price for them. nothing to discuss about.

i thought this would be clear actually.

I wouldn't call this any kind of NDA, since it's found by ourselves in the data of the game.

Well sure, but spreading info about that data to a 3rd party may infringe it, regardless if it is present on everyone's game. I thought I should notify you regardless, especially since one of the members was concerned as to why caution is needed.

This Brings up the following topic In my mind

Did anyone else noticed that there are two new Slots fro Bosses in the Bestiary? I just noticed this today and Wanted to ask.

On of them is the T-bird. But the other one.

Until this excalivation of data I thought that it might by the Faceless from the Prisonr battle in Necro Map 1. But now it could be even the spot for the Dragon Wright
