The campaign seems pretty well made. An interesting challenge on Hard.

When buying expansion on Steam, base game appears in the library. It needs to be downloaded. The base game is actually the expansion.

OK, I am really confused by the word "Standalone".
It seems the SoD expansion can be played just fine as NON-Standalone, just patch from 1.8 version to 2.1, then buy a reg. code/serial number for SoD and unlock it.
So, maybe this should be mentioned in this thread.

Standalone means you don't need H6 to play SoD, but if you have H6, SoD will just overwrite it and work as a H6+SoD

Do you think a reg. code/serial number from Steam will work?


It would be great to avoid downloading the base game from Steam,  because that is estimated to take at least 12 hours for me (or I have to wait some Days (i.e. more than 12 hours) until I can borrow my brother's ultrafast internet onnection). Downloading patch 2.1. took 5 hours.

Work on what??? Do you mean trying to use a Steam CD key on the non-Steam version? Anyway, I don't know about Steam, my game is non-Steam.

Why didn't you download the 2.1 patch(es) via torrent?
It's much faster that way!
Of course, the Steam version can't be patched using the UBI patches.

I have a retail version non-Steam DVD-ROM, but bought the expansion by Steam. I think I will try it and see what happens, if it doesn't work I hope can I uninstall my game, install the steam-version and use the Steam CD key again.

I have actually tried celestialheavens' torrent but it didn't work, so it had to be the slow patch.

the last expansion as they stated.fun or not.no sylvan. no academy.
i like this  game way much to play with all those tactical disadvantages(resources,tiers,less factions) and the mistreatment from the company,the bugs,the trouble installing,not fixing a thing with the 2.2 gb patch and having to be always online for playing single player mode. this game was a test for patience (as someone else stated) and mine ran out.
maybe i'm being over-dramatic but i see no point in playing a game with no replay value (playing the same stuff all over again without implementing anything new) and from a company that actually takes me for an idiot (ok all companies do that but this one was more profound).
great forum and very helpful!i'm going to check what's in the heroes 3 section and then i'll unsubscribe until heroes 7 is out and ubisoft is not in charge thanx for all the help and replies! happy gaming everyone!


How i understand you! the patch 2.1 was for me the opportunity to replay heroes 6 without bug... but after a few hours of play new bugs have discouraged me to play more.
I think I'll wait a few months for everything to be fixed, at least if Ubi bother to fix all these new bugs.

Thanks Elvin.....does this mean that we can install patch 2.1 without having to reinstall the whole Heroes VI?

Yes. SoD will overwrite H6 but you will have access to everything.

This is good news! Does this apply right now, or are Ubi still working on it?

Works for me! I installed the 2.1 patch over 1.8, and it seems this added the SoD choice in the list of versions inside the game menus.
I have the non-Steam version of Heroes VI, and it seems I can play my purchased Original game, and unlock SoD when purchased. I have not purchased the two smaller DLCs or SoD yet. I just have one Campaign mission left to play - the Blood Epilogue.
I will most probably buy the DLCs and SoD once done.

Not sure how the Steam version of the game handles this.

wow, some of those abilities seem crazy. the scorpicore's paralyzing sting sounds like a death sentence, especially if you combine with the shadow watcher

lol yeah, it's an amazing ability considering that the Manticore has like the highest iniative in the game so you can just have him on Wait, go paralyze an enemy at the end of the turn and then fly back to safety

No spoilers please, better to make a dedicated storyline thread so that people know whether to open it or not.

I now have the Shades of Darkness and it's playable!

I just installed the patch 2.1 directly without reinstalling the game, and went to the Unlock Content section and wrote the CD key from Steam without downloading from them.

Now I realize it could've been done a few days ago but with all these alarm reports and complications I thought it was better to proceed slowly trying to learn how things work first. Thanks for your help!
