Favourite Heroes IV Spell Animation

Has anyone got a spell animation that they like?

I love Steal all Spells as the spells are transfered the caster and then randomly selected to the unit and each displaying an animation of the spell

Also Blind[/] which shows a person being blindfolded as it heads spins round.

Anymore?

Displacement is kind of fun ...with the giant hand casually flicking the target along.

Cowardice is amusing.

Sanctuary is kind of nice, as is the ravening rat the Plague brings up.

However, I really think the combat animation for Town Gate should be changed to another giant hand making a different gesture, if ya know what I mean.

ROFL!

That would be very amusing and it would go with kind of humour that is in Heroes IV.

I very like Curse and Magic Arrow...

Magic Arrow: a fiery (what I saw) blast...
Curse: a doll stabbed with a blade and wenting into blue fire... a REAL curse

The spell animations in HOMM4 aren't my favourite. It usually just appears above the head of the target. I liked it better in HOMM3 when the spell actually appeared on the target.

Heroes 4 spell animation work a whole lot better than Heroes 3.

Some of the spell animation were good but others were a bit sloppy eg

Slow when cast looked good on some cretaures where it was cast at their feet but others had the spell up from there legs.

With Heroes 4 spells cast above the head it means that the spells animation is effective without the sloppyness of the effect

I'm a big fan of heroes series... But quite frankly, Age of Wonders 2 spell animations can't be beat!!!

They are all really crisp, excellent effects. And the overworld spells are even cooler.

I have played the demo version of age of Wonders II and yes the spell animation is good because it has a serious look about.

Heroes IV spells looks very good but dont have a serious look about them.  

But i will still take heroes IV over Age of Wonders.

I like Hand of the Death and Armageddon. I also think that the spells should be better looking, not just those small objects appearing over a stack.

Armaggeddon spell is not one of my favourites.  It is good but at still cant compare to the Heroes II Version of it.

That spell on there was awesome.

Yes cowardice can be frighting especially if you are playing the might alignments and have tons of beserkers that you cant control.

I love Steal all Spells


I can't find a steal all spells in my book, what magic school is it in?

Or did you mean steal all enchantments?

The first would steal spells in the spell book (offensive as well as buffing spells).  Steal enhancements sounds like it grabs the buff spells that have been applied.

Does it teach you the spells?  Or just apply them?

sorry it might be steal all enchantments.

And it only works on the battlefield that it all.  It steals the oppoents spells and randomly casts them on your army.  It is very impressive when cast.

On thinking about it, I suspect that the ability to learn the spells in the opponents spell book could easily become unbalancing to the game.   I have seen it in some games though -- where you learn a spell by observing the other side casting it.
