Why would you lock yourself into one? Only thing that matters is that your current opponent is hindered more than you.

FirePaladin that is a good point and it makes sense.
It's just sometimes you want to resurrect them, when they get shot at in siege or Death Stared or shot by Accurate Shot etc., but on the other hand you expose yourself to Implosion, Berserk, Blind etc.

I know. I sometimes use it when sieging towns with small armies, where the enemy usually doesn't know implosion or other such spells, so I can resurrect my dragons after being shot by arrow towers. But still, I rarely do this anyway.

However, since you mentioned Death Stare, I do equip the orb when I have dragons and I face Fortress on relatively small maps since they probably won't know spells stronger than level 3, and resurrecting several dragons wrecked by Mighty Gorgons is usually more important than not getting them slowed by Slow.

I would have happily voted if there was an option for "I use the orb sometimes." Now, whatever I vote, it's not exactly what I do.

Im more afraid of double edge sword than my opponent is ...

I believe strength in dragon lies in their abilities, that's why removing immunity to spells is not a best idea in my opinion.

Overall it depends i guess - As someone said Orb has great value in strategy against neutral armies, but playing online it's not worth to sacrifice immunity to armagedon or even implosion, slow, and others spells to opportunity to cast prayer or haste on your dragons

Resistance or Interference skill has no meaning for me

I agree. Only that Resistance and Interference can be extremely annoying. And Interference can also almost zero your Power skill with all those relatively common Interference artifacts.

FirePaladin Sorry guess I forgot to put a sometimes/it depends option, I guess it should always be there for any poll.
Since that option is not there, I guess it's better not to vote.

Orb is nice. Especially for Gold Dragons as they dont protection against Implosion. Black is solid as has full magic protection.

One more: I also use it when I have absolutely clear advantage over the enemy, but he also has an army that will probably kill several dragons, so I can resurrect them at the end. This is usually against strong secondary heroes, main heroes with little armies, etc. which is not too rare against AI if you play aggresive and capture the enemy's towns and mines soon.
Shackles of War or good Blind strategy are also totally recommended for this kind of stuff.
