SoD unfairly hard? Please.. Mind you there will be times where you have to guard yourself from opponents coming from various directions but that's nothing you can't solve with a bit of strategy.

I've noticed some changes in units, spells and abilities in SoD:
- anathema lasts 4 turns
- griffins have 90 HP
- you can no longer choose tha ability "shield to the bloodless" +10/+10 def to vamps, which is good b/c it was clearly OP

Hey ppl! So the xpack is out.. It's looking nice imo, but idk if i'll get it right now, cos I'm with very little time for playing.
But.. anyone know if there is any news, possibilities or rumors of a new xpack? =S or they'll stop here?


Well, judging by the hype and popularity on various online shops (top 10 sales lists etc), at least in my country the sales were good. But don't know if it was enough to satisfy Ubi...

Tell you what: wait at least until E3, because there could be some announcements there, either a next expansion or Heroes 7


thx, I'll keep an eye out!

Huh? Are you talking about the campaign? Because the campaign on hard is very easy!

Wish they had campaign maps like the last one from H5 tribes where you have to get Talonguard back.....jeez like, that WAS difficult.

Patch 2.1 release- feedback thread on the official forum has 100 pages, in 1 month lol.

Just curious, there hasn't been any news on a new patch, right?

where to buy?

I've now played through all of the HOMM6 campaigns and single player maps, including downloads from web sites.  Maybe ready to get SoD and the other additions.  I read that there is a combined version on Steam.  BUT, I like having the disks for games in hand -- so where can I buy these expansion items in DVD form, not download?

I've been reading bits and pieces about this new release - people do complain about bugs and stuff in reviews. Is it buggy then, does the game crash or anything? Have there been fix-patches released?

I'm considering buying SoD (Shadow of death xDDDDDD) Shades of Darkness, but is it worth it or is the game incomplete?

Yeah, people tend to do that A LOT, but if you read the bugs topic, there's almost nothing other than a few video drivers issues that can be easily solved.

Also, most complaints you'll read about SoD are linked to its catastrophic launch.

The game in itself is stable, the story is much better than the original and you get a new faction. If you find it at an interesting price, it can be a worthy purchase ... though I still think that the add-on (and both DLCs) are way overpriced.

i'm sry but i cannot agree to that. The game is still ridiculously bugged, but i have to acknowledge that they fixed a lot. The reason why i don't report bugs any longer is b/c i don't believe in another major patch.

Anyway, almost every day when i play i encounter bugs. Most of them are  older ones (some of them even from the very beginning) but there is so many issues with the new faction: Dungeon.

(btw. i play only duels, so my observations refer to battles exclusively)

I'll have to pass on that I'm afraid. The H6 map editor is a pain in the @ss and I have no motivation to play anymore.

I don't like necroing an old thread, although this one is not that old and can be a suitable one for my question.

I'd like to buy a Might&Magic game from UbiShop, because it allows to play next round of Heroes 7's Beta. I was thinking about buying something from Heroes 6. Last time I played it was long ago, when its beta was on. I didn't play it much due to some circumstances in private life, but I enjoyed it.

I was thinking what is better? Let's say like this: Shadows of Darkness is over 2x cheaper than basic Heroes 6. Will it be hard to master new features (real new and scrapped-resources ones) in SoD when I didn't play basic Heroes 6?

I'd like also to ask about the story. Will I be able to have fun by starting from Shadows of Darkness, or is playing earlier campaigns from basic Heroes 6 and its "adventure packs" compulsory?

Thanks for your help. I have time to Sunday to make my decission.

Shades only has a dungeon and a necro campaign so if you want the original campaigns you'll also need the original H6. But it's no worth it imo. Just get shades that has all races playable. The story of the original is unrelated to the campaigns in shades so that won't detract from your experience. Adventure packs are rather short standalone stories but enjoyable so I'd get them if I got a bargain.

Thank you for your response, Elvin. It's been a while since I asked my question, but I didn't have time to answer. I was able to read it in time, though.

Eventually I resigned from buying this game in time and get access to the Heroes 7's Beta (second round). I wouldn't have time to try out that beta anyway.

About buying Shadows of Darkness, I read some oppinions about it (including your post; I considered it as one of the highest quality ones) and they ensured me that I should wait for a release containing Heroes 6 (basic version)+adventure packs+Shadows of Darkness standalone.

I like enjoying the story and even if SoD's story is not related to Heroes 6 (basic), I'd like to see basic campaigns first and try out castles. I am awared that the differences between factions are small which gives you a feel as if you played the same faction with different look (that people said, personally I dunno how it looks like in reality).

Same goes with bugs or bad optimalization - I read some negative oppinions about these important technical elements in the Shadows of Darkness.

So, considering all pros and cons, I will wait for a pack with fine price and then buy it and experience everything myself.

MMH7's R.M.G is really welcome
posted January 25, 2016 02:12 AM

To add more to this, somewhat revived thread...

is that the standalone expansion has been literally redone by another developing company called: Virtuos.

How do I know all of this? Simple, I just bought it via the Uplay's Ubishop for a mere 15$ + taxes of the respected countries(Canadian ones when it came for me).

Yes, it is highly recommended to buy the DLC packs in order to enable the scenario like maps that acted as campaigns maps in those expansion DLC at the time of their releases(4 to 5 years ago as of now-2016).

It comes fully patched to version 2.1 upon installation and, first launch of it, also. The Conflux online news and chat functions are, still, fully functional, as this very moment.

Did not know that when it comes to create your favorite hero, you had a huge, free, 30 points to use for rendering that chosen hero of yours, into a full fledge champion hero(must use them wisely through the five classes of secondary skills that this game has to offer).

Has to go to the main folder of Ubisoft's directory of your own HDD to get and send the launching Icon of the game onto the Desktop window of your current in-use O.S., though.

Now, as I am posting this, get to wonder if Mods are already done for this really well done standalone expansion release.
