Cause dragons are not that original anyways, black dragons, red dragons, pink dragons with blue stripes... it's good that they didn't go with that dragon spam thingy
The faceless on the other hand are kinda new and original and they look awesome. I hope the other Dungeon units would be on par with them, any rumors on what creatures can we expect to see in the roster?


according to some images from the compenduum (or however it's spelled)
we might see
dark minotaurs,
something that looks like the old good beholder(here's hoping),
a witch like one in heroes 5,
a black manticore
and i really hope for a hydra to come
so if they follow the compenduum stuff we will wait and see they will add the poison shooters or the dark raiders. i think the last unit will be human like to give a stronger "dark elf" feeling. still happy to see that manticores, evil eyes and minotaurs might be implemented. back to basics

Well, this is good news to me. What I don't understand is the "standalone" deal. Does this mean you cannot just buy it as an expansion? If that is the case, are they somehow magically reworking the code?

I should also point out that I've learned from experience and won't be buying until I see either very good reviews or a significant price drop. Ideally they should work to release a "good" expansion that can be built upon and not a rushed one.

Good luck on getting any info on that. I'm still waiting to find out who is even making this expansion.

I mean seriously, I get NDAs and all on stuff that has to do with game content, but what is the big deal with people knowing who is making this? Did Limbic all of a sudden learn how to make an expansion? Is this leftover from Black Hole and just polished by Limbic? Is there a new company in place now moving forward?

I'd swap minotaur with witch, and but otherwise that looks reasonable. I'm not so sure faceless would actually be a unit, but we'll see.

Well, since dragons seem to have a theme of being Bosses rather than Champion units in Heroes VI, I'm guessing it'll be more or less like this:

Core:
Assassin
Shadow Lurker (Beholder)
Cave Lizard (Raptor thing)

Elite:
Minotaur
Manticore
Witch

Champion:
Faceless

I hope faceless is a unit, they look great. And naturally they will be level 7 if they are a unit, as they are as strong as Angels.

You really think Dragons will not be included as champion?

You silly, silly people

They'll never pass up an opportunity to give reintroduce Black Dragons to the series.

@Doomforge

I guarantee you the Faceless will be the Champion Unit. The Black Dragon was already introduced as a boss in vanilla (Final campaign level with Blood reputation). It is highly improbable that they will come back as weaker Champion Units.

They hinted that BD would be in Dungeon. They'll probably pull a "Celestial/Seraphin" to include them and make them Black Dragons in all but name

A lineup that I am expecting:

Core:
Assassin
Some kind of lizard rider/ the witches (Either could fit a core or elite level)
Minotaur

Elite:
(Lesser) Faceless
Hydra
Some kind of lizard rider/ the witches (Either could fit a core or elite level)

Champion:
Black Dragon

Because they have more than hinted that the Black Dragon will be part of the lineup somewhere... and if we are getting really technical than the boss creature is actually the Child of Malassa, not the Black Dragon. Much as the Mother Namataru is a bigger version of the Fate Spinner, the Child of Malassa could be a bigger Black Dragon.

They're probably going to do something like that so the fans don't lynch them.

@ he fas will lynch them, no mather what they wll do.

I posted my vision some time ago in the general discussion and I as some others am not sure if th Champion will be a Black dragon

Core
Minotaur
Shadow lurker
Assasin /or Blood sister

Elite
Maticore
Faceless / or hydra
Matriarch

Champion
Black dragon / Faceless

Just a note, based on the art and facts we know.
Ubilikes to make things cheap, and we have a Faceless and Black dragon model from the original game. The apriel's fool forge joke gave as a hint that Minotaurs are beeing considered, and in the lore-book published some time ago, we could see Maticoras and Shadow lurkers. So that woud lead us to the conclusion that these would be the 5 basic creatures of the faction.

Now lets ask out selves, since ubi has these "One-or-two female per faction" and "3/4 new creatures per faction" policies, whych of the older units would not survive this policy.

There were 4 Dark elf units in this faction, now if we take the art theory, there is room only for 2 more. And there is no garantie that those units will be Dark-elves. Also the Art theory introduces 3 "new" creatures into the faction, but no females. This meaning that the other units should be female and can be based on old units.

Well, Faceless just seem like a more logical Champion Unit, to parallel Haven's Celestials.

However, I certainly hope you all are right about Black Dragons. I'd really like to see Dragons return as a playable unit.
