Nice work SepSpring....

From the screenshots, it looks like:

- The faceless has three casting abilities (one with cooldown)
- The racial guage, once reached level II changes into two "invisible" shapes

An ability that he shares with glories.

Did they just change the backstory of the dark elves? Demons burned down that special tree and the future dark elves were blamed and forced into exile and turned to Malassa right?

No, that's just you remembering it wrong. Check the Heroes 5 timeline. The Dark Elves turned to Shadow worship during the War of Bitter Ashes. They went underground after the tree-affair and settled in Ygg-Chall after the War under the Mountains.

Thanks, I read the dark elf story and am glad that it remains the same because I liked that story.

@DD: Additionally, we now know that Scorpicores deal might damage. Also, take a second look at the gauge - I think it's a picture of first one, then two Dark Elf troops(Assassins maybe?)

I have seen the screenshots and the Dungeon town model looks just AMAZING! I know, this sounds like a crazy teen girl, but to me it is the best town model in game.
And when I put the purple colour aside, also the units look just awesome. Although I would prefer hydra instead of manticore, I am so excited about them... yeah, the dragon could be bigger, but still... the dark elves look really great

Is it me, or do we actually see how a "potential" Sylvan city would look if a 2nd expansion would happen (in the story trailer)?

Quting Xerox: "The Minotaur is huge"

I like the winter scenery with all those ice crystals. Is there a new underground passage entry in a form of a dragon skull I see? Or is this only a decoration...

The racial ability icon got me an idea. Maybe we will get an ability to make unit clones? Not to confuse an enemy, but maybe Shadow Clones that do like 1/4 damage of the original and die on attack? There's no clone spell in Heroes 6...

I wonder how many neutrals we will get, the game description on the official site says that we will get 7 new faction units, so how is the wikis 20 new units relevant to this (of course this could be utter bs)

I must say that after today I'm really hyped about the expansion

Cheesy trailer and I don't expect the story to be any better. I'm curious to read the first reviews (written by people who actually played HoMM games), but I'll probably wait for a 50% off or something.

I am not sure if cloning would fit in with Dungeon as a racial....

Maybe 2 troops can be made invisible?

@Elvin- the abiliy of the Glory is called Speed of Light, so is the ability of the Faceless called Speed of Dark?

Not clones.

Shadow Clones

It connects with their "shadowy" nature. They would use dark magic to create shadowy clones of themselves, kinda like elementals... it fits quite well imo. Similar to gating, but instant (like summoning elementals), so you wouldn't have to wait for the creature to appear in the next turn.
