Who is you favorite HoMM3 hero

It is easy to in this moment of question to go to the one you always play as, because you are a professional, or maybe you always play one town so s/he is what you've got.

I want you to look closer, or maybe look from a little further out. What makes them special to you. I play Jeddite whenever I can. I love the dungeon, and both the creatures, and the heroes here are my favorite. When I make my decision I take all of this into account. Even down to the array of buildings in the Dungeon are a reason I turn here.

But there are many other things I consider. In fact...

I prefer Alamar over Jeddite. There are several reasons for this:
1. Alamar has cooler, more, and frankly, any lore.
2. I like his pic better, IRL he reminds me of myself, whereas Jeddite looks just like my father. (A great guy, but I'm me)
3. There are several things I would rather have over scholar, but as a main hero it isn't too bad as long as I still get the elements.

With all of this in mind... Who is your favorite hero, and why?

I might sound boring, but my favorite will always be Christian, he's the guy who introduced me to the whole series.

Also, I like his smug face and the buffed ballista. He also has his very own campaign in AB, and it's a very fun one.

Well, here's the thing...

My favorite hero because he's the strongest (he has brought me the most victories in PvP matches in early 2000s) is Tazar.

But since Tazar is such a strong hero in late game (level 60+ in month 12 of the game when I used to fight my hotseat friend) my other favorite heroes are....

- Mephala... I absolutely love her pretty face, and the fact that her specialty is armor - probably my favorite secondary skill in the game... well, it's a no brainer that she's there at the top of my list.

- Kyrre... used to be my favorite hero before finding out he's a she. My world crumbled at the revelation that Kyrre is a woman, so I have stopped liking him her so much (not because he is female, but because I have believed him to be a male for 2 decades, so I got him ingrained so deeply into my psyche that I have a hard time believing that she's a woman. I feel betrayed lol

- Monere... I pretty much like everything about this guy (I hope no one comes to tell me that this is a woman, too cause I'm gonna have a mental breakdown, so please refrain from ruining my dreams). I like his avatar, specialty, and secondary skills (both starting SS, as well as what he's being offered upon leveling up)

- Alkin... I feel sorry for this guy because he's always in the shadow of Tazar. Had Tazar not been such a beast of a hero Alkin would have easily won the title of "best Fortress hero" in my opinion. That mad cows are too strong by themselves, and under Alkin they're even stronger than that. Equip recanter's cloak and watch the enemy panic LOL. Well, as long as the enemy is not Necro, that is, because phuck necro! That pu55y 9ay-a55 cheap 5hit town. JUST PHUCK IT!

- Fafner + Neela... both are equally strong, or equally 5hit... depending on whether you're OK with their secondary skills. The only time I have rage quit a Heroes game against a landlocked AI and immediately deleted the save has been when I have played Fafner and my first 5 skills have been scholar, resistance, scouting, eagle eye and for the 6th skill I had to choose between ballistics or navigation. I didn't even choose anything at that point, I was so pissed off that I had ALT+F4'ed and went straight to the save and deleted it.

But otherwise, and especially since I am only playing WoG and thus can get rid of all of these 5hitty skills, both Fafner and Neela are viable options for me since I like the Tower... well, I like the NQs and the Titans, and that's enough reason for me to play that town

- Tamika... the only reason I like Tamika is because I absolutely love the Dread Knights. I am a famous hater of Necropolis and never play them... unless I feel the urge to watch the death blow trigger. And when that happens, I lose all rational though and I get over my hatred towards necropolis and just pick tamika so I can watch the death blow trigger and have an orgasm... a brain orgasm, that is. Don't think of something else, you nasties

Based on all these explanations Tazar is still on the top of the list for me for 3 main reasons, all in once:

- strongest hero in the game;
- his specialty is my favorite secondary skill;
- Fortress is my favorite town in the entire history of HoMM... wnot much more favorite than Rampart, but still some 5-10% more favorite than the lumberjacks

Then, after Tazar come (in THIS order)...

- Monere;
- Tamika;
- Mephala;
- Kyrre;
- Neela;
- Fafner;
- Alkin

And that's about it. I don't really main any other heroes except for these... unless we are allowed to play hidden heroes like kilgor or xeron. If that's allowed then I do pick Xeron (cause I the like Archdevils) and Mutare Drake quite often, but only for fun. Most of the time I do stick to the usual 7 mentioned above (I know that I've mentioned 8 of them, but since I never play Alkin it means that only 7 are actually playable by me despite of the fact that I have 8 favorites)

@monere

Dang dude. Mostly same at me. I wanted to reply in this thread as well, but looks like I don't really need anymore.

(except for Fortress part, Fortress is like 2nd-3rd, with Tower as favorite)

Don't forget Bron. He's decent for an early push.

And Tamika could be replaced, with Thant or Vidomina.

hehe, I'm glad we share the favorite heroes. Although, I have to admit I am having a hard time finding people to actually like monere. At least on this forum I've not heard many of them voting for this hero. And likewise for Mephala. Do you really mean you like both these heroes?!?

Cause if you do... then yes, it's a miracle indeed

Bron... well, he's not bad indeed ('cause he starts with reptiles), but he doesn't suit my style of play (clear out the map for 12 months, clear out all of the utopias, level up all of the 19 secondary skills for my main hero, and then, at the end of month 12 I attack the landlocked AI... to which I lose most of the time lol)

Were I not be playing this game like a pussy I admit that Bron would have been an amazing main / starting hero, but otherwise I have left him out of my list for the reason I explained above.

Also, you say that Tower is your favorite town, which is cool cause I like Tower, too and I play it quite often. However, being your favorite and being good at it are 2 different things, so - and I hope you are being honest - what is your usual win/lose ratio in PvP when you play Tower? And which hero do you usually main?

Only Monere is an exception, didn't bother mentioning that.

Oh, I'm also pro at Tower (Master Gremlins + gargoyle stacks strategy); I can get Nagas or even Giants, if possible, on week 1. I main Neela on larger maps, and Aine/Solmyr on smaller (but I might still go with Neela). I also get Archery whenever I can with Tower, if I have the needed skills already. I never played PvP tho, my only PvP experience is the current 2v2v2v2 with 6 human players on Harrowk's Discord.

Also, since Tower is better only on larger maps, and people want a smaller map in 1v1 PvP....

hehe, no problem. I like being unpopular and the less people there are who like monere the more I like him xD

Regarding tower... sometimes I get giants in week 1, as well, and that despite of the fact that I play on impossible difficulty, thus starting with zero money and zero resources. Given how expensive Tower is giants are, ironically, their cheapest creature to get.

And yeah, I do remember the aine/solmyr picks. Everyone seems to main these on small maps. Personally, I don't like them, so even on small maps I pick whatever I want (which is always Fafner or Neela). Also, I don't know the map you've mentioned cause I only play randomly generated maps which I edit to suit my style of play.

Anyway, how did you do in that PvP game? Had you played on impossible I think you may have been among the first 3 players to lose given how expensive tower is and in PvP games this really is a big handicap

I didn't use Tower, for now. I took Necro with Vidomina, to get a hang of it.

That's one more reason to why I love Tower; you get more tier 7 than most towns.

Well, it's just that I prefer to get a magic hero on Conflux, but Monere is a dang awesome might one tho.

I usually play the cursed template (original template pack), on the highest difficulties.

But I sometimes pick maps as well.

Edit: True. However, I started playing HoMM3 right around when the first modern King's Bounty, King's Bounty the Legend was released (so ~2008), so at me it's not decades at plural form. Also, yes she's the most normal-looking hero from Necro, and her specialty is OP on large maps. Plus I barely play Necro as well.

Duuude, Vidomina has been my main hero for decades... despite of the fact that I rarely play Necro. The few times I'd choose Necro I'd go with Vidomina cause she had the most human-looking face of all those abominations from Necropolis. Only after I have started liking the Dread Knights I have changed my main to Tamika, but prior to that I have always picked Vidomina. We do seem to like the same heroes. Not that any of us cares too much, but it's like it is

So, just to disappoint...
1. Corkes or Gundula (HotA or not)
2. Dessa
3. Kyrre (while I share Monere's disappoint, always saw her as an hippy)
4. Vido (I love her face and her specialty, she's the only necro hero I really like)
5. Aine (not as main but I have a special place reserved for her in my heart and in my army)
6. Alamar(again not for main but Resurrection and Scholar...)
* Fourth place goes to Miriam if I'm playing HotA.

Then I like Dracon and Gelu for reasons... They make for my favorite faction, what I call Power Castle.

Most hated hero and faction: Tazar and Fortress.

You know, it is kinda funny and very coincidental that you all are talking about liking Tower, and Vidomina on Necro.

IIRC, Vidomina's bio said that she had been a alchemist, with tower faction, until they found out she was more interested with reanimation, instead of animation.

I like Drakon because I was fascinated by the Gnolls as a kid and there was also a custom map with the story of Tatalian rebellion against humans where you had a hero called "Drakon III". For some reason I thought it was cool that there are more generations of Drakon.

Then there would be Vokial because similarly as a kid I liked Vampires.

Monere was in a great custom map called Faces of Death.

And then there are others that I liked just for their portraits, like Kalt and Xyron.

understandable. Tazar is a hero for pussies (ie ME)

However, I can't understand why you dislike Fortress. Is such a unique town across all of the HoMM installments that you can't possibly downright "hate" it. Ok, hydras are probably not that unique cause I've seen them in several different versions of HoMM, but all other creatures are really unique, and with cool abilities. Actually, if I'm not wrong it's the only town with 4 tiers of creatures out of 7 to have buff/debuff specials, which is really cool in my opinion. Tiers 3-6 all cast some sort of spell on enemy (powerful spells, too, for that matter) which makes for a very interesting and atypical gameplay for a "barbarian" town.

I don't care about lore, I just like her cause she's good looking for an undead

Life is full of disappointments, my friend... I found that out when I tried playing Heroes 5.

But we are going off topic.

I don't like online multiplayer/pvp that much so who cares if I used Kalt against the AI?

It's all part of a secret network, dude, managed by some Necromancer cults and Gavin Magnus....

(This ain't for real, btw, just something I came up with, since someone might take it as MM lore )

The reason I hate Tazar is mainly cause he is ugly and I like to see pretty smiley faces when I look to my heroes list.
Fortress isn't a bad town to start with and dragonflies and cows are quite useful but for me that's it. Pretty much prefer Castle, Cove or Tower. I also don't mind to play Rampart or Stronghold, but that is because I feel the heroes pool compensates for the less useful troops (hope the magnificent Grand Elves, coming day 2 of week 1 can forgive me but them and treasury are the only good things in that town).

if you're talking stats then Rampart is not a bad town. I think it's the 2nd fastest town after Conflux, it's also the most magic resistant town, and centaurs, trees, elves, dragons and even unicorns are at the top of their respective tier's rankings. I hope you won't mind me for saying, but I think you are wrong if you consider Rampart a weak town stats-wise.

If you're talking purely from a personal preference point of view, however... I can understand that. We all have our preferences

Also, I'm glad you like Towero. That town is in the league of the most underrated (or maybe underplayed?) towns in H3, along with Fortress and Inferno.

As for Tazar being ugly... well, he's a beastmaster, so it's natural that he looks like one xD

Dwarves and trees aren't bad units to remain in town but if you keep them in main, there goes your speed. I find unicorns overpriced but I guess they are ok to give some sturdiness to your army. Like it happens with Cove, it's a good town to start with but as soon as I have Castles and Towers all those troops are going to lesser heroes...
