Heroes 8 ultimate ideas thread

This is a thread for anyone's/everyone's HoMM8 idea/vision or custom lineups.
Here are a few links to existing HoMM8 ideas:
Rimgrabber's vision for HoMM8 part 1
Rimgrabber's vision for HoMM8 part 2
lizardwizard's vision/ideas for HoMM8
ArdentWyrm's HoMM8 idea
Damacon_Ace's HoMM8 idea
PS: I didn't include Kogwin's HoMM8 idea because whenever I click on its link, it appears to be a broken link.
I also have a new incomplete HoMM8 vision here, please do not edit it.

When you open the 'share' menu, there's a section that says 'anyone with this link'. Go there and select view, comment or edit. Then copy and paste the link.

Anyone here?, I do not want another dead thread.

Isometric view is a must for me.

And no corny story with the likes of Queen Isabel.

Well we had three games without isometric view, so I'm not sure it's critical. An isometric grid on a square map though, that was a damned terrible decision. Above all, the grid must map the orientation of the map.

the way it works is when you get a skill and you level up you have a chance to be able to select a sub-skill, which advances depending on the advancement of the skill that it's associated with, but to answer your question you can have all three sub-skills of a skill on your hero.

Okay, one issue with your proposal, Healing is always going to be a weak skill because the First Aid Tents is so weak (in H3 it has 75 hp and no defence, and in H5 it climbs slightly to 100 hp, vs the ballista, which is H3 has 10 defence, and 250 hp, and in H5 5 defence and 250 hp). The only way you can make the skill half-way decent is by including a factor independent of the tent.

nah, I'll just leave it weak, there needs to be some weak skills.
By the way, not too long ago an "anonymous dinosaur" was reading my doc, do you think that might be you?

A shield on the FATent (if it's akin to the Arcane Armour spell of Heroes 5) would certainly help.

OK, will do now, and provide war machine stats.
Actually, I changed my mind, instead the healing tent can resurrect at expert level.

Okay, some feedback.

Some nitpicks

1. What is the valkyrie? Is it just a flying rider?
2. What's the source of the salamander? And why is the salamander distinct from the fire elemental, when historically the texts about elementals identified the two?
3. Is the illithid just a caster unit like the mage and such?
4. Why is an untamed cyclops better than a regular cyclops?

General question

How do the armies fight? In other words, what about the fighting style of (say) the stronghold other than the unit names tells the players "these are barbarians"?
