Hi all. I forgot Heroes 5 and modding for a long long time. Played many different games , even Heroes 6, but couldn't find THE ONE. Best game for me is the one which involves you 100% and if you become bored with it, you can start mod it, or try other peoples' mods and start all over again and again. One such game is HoMM5, what's why I'm here again.
Now about the project. This one is big enough, and it's full name would be: Heroes of might and magic 5: World of Warcraft edition. I'm not and will not be trying to advertise WoW , we already know what it is, it's just that I was addicted to it for a long long time, but not anymore. I just want to join two of my favorite games in to one. Some may like it , some may not, but I'm doing it for myself and will upload it here if someone wants to try it.
I spent about three weeks in thinking, writing, discussing, testing things and finally I began my work. Where will be changes everywhere: abilities, spells, creatures, heroes, towns , interface and gameplay. You will be able to start playing H5 again and enjoy like you tried it first time (at least I hope so and I'm heading to it).
I know I didn't finish many of my mods and ideas, BUT I was never so interested, inspired and excited in doing something when I'm now, so I'm sure I'll finish it sooner or later. I might be old-school modder and ofcourse not so good as others but I still remember many things.

In this first post I will write my progress in percentages so everyone could know when to expect first test release. And in some other post I will introduce you with all new things done. So...

P.S.: I'm working alone, so it will take a lot of time, but if some "Creatures' textures editor"/"Creatures switcher" would join me, that would be nice

I forgot to explain the abilities, so here it goes:
TERROR - it's an alternative to Priest's Psychic Scream and Warlock's Howl of Terror. Since I couldnt make it active ability I lowered the chance for it to trigger.
VENGEANCE - it is what it's called, passive ability of all tanks, but with alternative effect.
MASTERY - well, it is mastery of Arms Warrior, Combat Rogue and Marksmenship Hunter in WoW.
STUN - I couldnt make any active stun for rogue, so I made it passive with lower chance.
RESISTANCE AURA - it is what it says it is, used by Paladins.
FRENZY - it's Balance Druid's passive skill called "Owlkin Frenzy", have similar effect. Here's what it looks like in game:


Now two more abilities:



ENHANCED BLADES: it is a mix of Paladin's skill "Seal of Truth" and Shaman's "Flametoungh Weapon", with a little bit different effect.
ICY TOUCH: it is what it says- Death Knights "Icy Touch", but with no additional effects. Here's how it looks ingame:



It uses Icebolt visuals and sounds for now.

Frenzy- YES and it doesn't increase spellpower. It's useful mostly for retaliations only, atleast for now.
Icy Touch- well YES.

you are sure death coil deals earth damage? there are hardly any creature abilities which deal elemental damage (call lightning, presence of the storm, lava breath, explosion, searing aura, fire shield and magma shield I think), and that one sounds a bit like flamestrike which doesn't deal elemental damage.

@Fauch
Death Coil deals shadow damage in WoW, but we dont have so many magic schools in H5, so i chosen Earth. Yes, I used flamestrike, but just change it to deal Earth damage. Needs testing ofcourse.



NOW AGAIN, MORE NEWS:

try it on emerald dragons and golems, I don't think damage will be reduced by magic defense or negated by immunity to earth.

seems you are right. But I used another ability now for death coil, so now it's ok. It deosn't deal earth damage but it also ignores defense.

Now as always some news. Nothing special , but still...







EDIT:
Some more news. Nothing special again.

Looks good. What are the factions going to be like? I.e. Necropolis is going to be Forsaken or Scourge, Haven Lordaeron or Stormwind, and are you going to include Sanctuary mod and make them fully with WoW Nagas?

For version 1.0 faction will be the same as we have now in HoMM5, but if mod is successful I might make different factions, based on WoW for version 2.0. No Nagas for my mod for now.

Sorry for a long delay, but you know...job, home, wife...they take time and strengh. But still, I have some news as always.:

I like this project. I'm doing my own too. Anyway for death coil should deal dark damage instead of earth.
