Thank you Elvin..

@Pim
I would have loved a Leprechaun faction. Too bad they capped the faction limit to 9. We could have a faction called Mound that includes Leprechauns, Gnomes, Kobolds and Halflings.

Brilliant idea, Steyn!!! (Even though this is not a free cities discussion thread). Anyway, about the bobcat, its upgrade could be called lynx. No idea how to translate it in languages that have only one name for it, though.

Perhaps an idea for a mod then.

Thread cleaned. I would like to ask everyone to be more civil with each other. We are all part of the forum and I'm sure we can do better than that Don't let past replies lead into comebacks, this is not helping anyone.

Loved the tigers in h4 too, by the way


Actually I seriously disliked them . I guess the reason was that I like "my" Sylvan to be more oriented on the European temperate region. The looks of the Sylvan town in Heroes3 had oriental aspects to it (consider just the Mage Tower alone already), but the way it was done in Heroes4 was a bit too much for me. The whole town screen looked more like an Asian temperate town and for some reason, the Elves felt out of place there for me.

Mind you, I don't have anything against a setting in an Asian temperate ambiance, because Sanctuary in Heroes6 was good all by itself (well, mostly).

With Sylvan being my fav faction, I hope their theme to be more like Heroes 3's Fortress, or at least more "deeper nature" orietned.
My dream line-up is :

Core : Sprite, White Tiger, Master Hunter ;
Elite : Griffins, Unicorns, Treants ;
Champion : Phoenix, Faerie Dragons .

All of the units in the OP looks too feminine.

I understand that the Sylvan is more nature, but I would put a human like creature to the Elite section....Not sure what it could be.

I think one of the four hero classes will be Druid, so I suggested a more H4 oriented Sylvan

Pegasus by itself is pretty "weak" creature, I only see them as mounts for some other units.

But when we are talking about that, how about Hippogiffs, especially now when Gryphons are out?

Great idea, although they might still be too similar.

Too similar to what, Gryphons? Well, Gryphons are in Haven anyway while Hypogriffs are something that should belong to the nature.

Well, definitely better than Pegasus or Deer in my opinion, and they can make it a mount if people don't want just them as units.

Agree on deer and pegasus. Still think some king of a big cat would be awesome, though.

Please no pixies! If we already got rid of gremlins and hobbits please give Sylvan smth more serious. I think 2 elven units in line up is enough. Core - Hunter. Elite - Druid. I'd like to see army representing nature's force than another "one-race" line up.

My silly ideas:

CORE:

Hunter - Shooter. Double strike is already a tradition .

Owlbear - Slow defensive unit.

Shapeshifter  - Quick offensive unit with ability to shapeshift into Great Deer (buffer) or Lynx (melee, offensive).

ELITE:

Druid - buffer.

Unicorn - fast and agile. Traditionaly can blind enemies.

Dryad - (this time) magical creature able to crowd control enemy units. Idea for this unit originated from slavian myths of "wiła" and "południca". In few simple words: It's a sexy tree-loving succubus .

CHAMPIONS:

Treant - Tank. Creates obstacles on a combat map.

Fearie Dragon - Fragile magical creature. High offensive values.

Yay for the lynx-shapeshifter! Also, owlbears would be awesome!
EDIT: just noticed your dryad suggestion. As I am from Ukraine, I think this pagan slavic-inspired creature would really be a neat addition to the Sylvan faction!

I voted for Fortress because i don't think we've seen enough of this faction yet, but if the elves win it will be great also, long time no see the elven faction. I would like the elves based on the celtic and african culture, they did it well on Heroes 5. Like everyone else i wish the elves to be less effeminated and more badass.
Sylvan army in heroes 7 should be, in my opinion:

Core: Fairy/Driad ; Blade Dancer ; White Tiger
Elite: Hunter/Sharpshooter ; Druid/High Druid ; Unicorn Rider
Champion: Treant/Ancient Treant ; Green Dragon/Fairy Dragon
