HoMM 3 (Small tricks vs AI) Trick 19 - Berserk Focus Attack

HoMM 3 (Small tricks vs AI) Trick 19 - Berserk Focus Attack

One of the boss of map Xiedu/Blasphemy is Artest, he has 500 Black Dragons, 2000 Minotaurs, 2000 Minotaur Kings, 3000 Medusas and 3000 Medusa Queens. He also has the Second Sight Pendant which make him immune to Blind.

Normally we need to use Luoge with many mana points and many shooters to kill him using Force Field. In my case, Hughes has to finish this mission because Luoge is on the other way. But here is a huge problem - Hughes only have 6 Arch Angels, 3 Arch Devils and 3 Efreet Sultans (and he has no Force Field spell).

Many trick won't work in this case.
(1) Want to use Blind? Artest has Second Sight Pandent.
(2) Want to take advantage of terrain? Artest is a stand-still hero and no advantage on this terrain.
(3) Want to use Arch Devil to hit & run? Hughes only have 3 Arch Devils and Artest has tons of army.
(4) Want to use Implosion? Hughes only has 416 mana points when Artest has 520.
(5) Want to use Berserk? Artest has 500 Black Dragons. (no Black Orb here)

But Richard believe in this trick - maybe I cannot cast Berserk on Black Dragons, but I can use Berserk to kill them.

覧覧覧覧覧

Nice video Considering the enemy has blackies and ranged stacks, mass forgetfullness and berserk were to be expected. I did not know about the infinite berserk, would it have not worked with the second efreet stack alive? It did not seem necessary to get it killed. Also how come you did not lure the minos closer to the ballista for some full range shots? Actually, didn't the mino kings have bravery? How come no morale?

great fight indeed, but I don't understand some of the moves. For example, why did you have to cast hypnotize on the last 9 minotaurs when you could have just murdered them with the resurrected army.

Also, Elvin's question (why not bring them closer to the ballista so they can be killed easier) still stands

Not necessary because I have Golden Bow here, dude. This is the full damage, no long range penalty. Actually I should use Firewall to kill them quicker, not Disrupting Ray and Ballista shoot. The damage is pretty low because I don't have Expert Artillery.
