Thanks a few days later I managed it with the elementalist and a sacrificial army. His expert beserk worked lots better and trimmed the odds to managable levels.

Waa, this is probably the most interesting topic on this forum. I enjoy too the home made maps, especially those story oriented. My favourite map still remains Sander's Folly, by timothy duncan (who also created The outpost of progress and Goldheart, wich are also good maps for those who like a good story). I noticed that many players tend to just click away the story, the messages,etc. I wonder why. It is a big difference between 5 minutes spent with the map generator and a couple of months of sweat and brain damage that mapmakers spend. Shame.

I guess the best way to handle Azure Dragon are
1).forcefield + ammo cart + plenty of spell points + decent shooters

2). forcefield + AD

3). forcefield + Ancient Behe + cloned Ancient Behe (my personal favorite......;P)

Is there a better way to fight against Azure Dragons than with the alltime high-Level killer mighty gorgons?

...I donīt think so....

Q: But what if there was 7 azure dragon stacks.
A: two-three stacks of Mighty Gorgons + expert air magic (not necessary) + counter attack (and...) + chain lightning.

Quite useful, but hard to get...

In normal maps these spells are banned...only townportal is given most of the time...sometimes some tombs are founded, but have to be given away to a seer....

Hi, commando!

Your map of VIM is really terrific! But I still have a problem. I reached the final battle in the middle of 9th month and just found that my troop was not strong enough for a easy win as mentioned by ironfist. even If I cast blind to farie dragon in the 1st round, the rest enemy troops could still destroy most of my forces. Would you please give me more suggestions about it?  A detail procedure is much appreciated .


BTW, my final troop includes 700 ADs, 300 AAs, 550 Chaos Hydra, 300 Titans, 75 Az, 500 ABs, 1500 MGs.

Right now I'm playing Reclaimation (or whatever the name is) with Conflux, and I once again realize the greatness of that map. It's huge.
But for download there is a cuople of nice storytelling maps. I don't remember anyone right now, but I'll be back on that one.

Now after many tries i did it finally.
But the main battle is against the main rampart hero.
In this battle, you need much luck to win, and many spellpoints to ressurect a big part of your lost army.
all other battles arenīt that hard

When the hints in this threat (one or two sides before) donīt help you enough, than feel free to ask exactly where your "dead end" comes along and i will try to help you, what I "learned" from "commando" and "ironfist".


just a quick note

You do not have to fight the rampart and the hell main heroes at all. With your movement advantage (plus TP) you can simply ignore them killing all their other heroes (the same holds for all the necros). Thus they are left with 1 hero each with which they can hold at most 1 town ...

is there a really good mapsite ANYWHERE?

excellent!

Hi all,

this excellent thread kept me busy for weeks now having to play through all those mentioned maps. I must admit I enjoyed the Pride series most as they are still managable.
Unfortunatly I still can't beat this damn Dragonmaster in Utb. Problem is I can't find neither the CH-powerup (will I get them or is this the event near one of the fortresses before the star axis? In that case I found it ;P) nor get the Orb of invulnerability which wiuld help me in the SoD version of Utb. As I understood, I will need DimDoor to get the Tome of Air and the Sea Captain's hat but I didn't find the spell yet. There's only the Dragonmaster , the Orange hero on the samll island with the Lion's shield and the green hereo in the upper left of the underground left. Besides that I captured all towns but no DimDoor in the last conflux.
But this would be strange as I think I need DimDoor to get the Orb of inhibition to solve the map and I also need it to get the two artifacts for the seer ?
I know this topic is quite old but maybe somebody can help me with this.
Oh and btw ofcourse I can't beat the Dragon master with my 5400 ABs, h&r is also no option as I fuc*ed up boosting my skills and can't rech lvl 90 on knowledge to get to the tavern.

!SPOILER!...!SPOILER!...!SPOILER!...!SPOILER!
I peaked at the map in the editor (evil me) and after the Dragonmaster there's only the grail left to take. So no DimDoor and hence no Orb :\


Thanks in advance for your feedback !

You'll still need to defeat 7*9999 dragons so keep your forces alive. Dragonmaster fight is NOT a hard one.

Hi there,

thanks for your kind words. I guess you've long since solved the problem but just for the sake of argument, the archangels are the second stack you should blind - the AI won't clone blinded stacks. Diminish enchanters with titans; when the azures come surging out, clone ancients and mighties and wipe them out. Disrupt faerie dragons before dealing the final blow.

Obviously this will not work in the new version of the map =)

You can learn ddoor and fly at the main conflux - not straight away, mind you - try powering up the mage guild =)

As per the seers, well... try and see! =)

The tavern was added for variation, so that players could try different tactics. You can bomb DM with other heroes or you can battle him straight out - as you please. 5400 ancients are more than enough.

Though I read in the posts here he was supposed to have various kinds of dragons ? Here he has normal Dungeon units (minotaurs,scorpicores,medusas, red and black dragons,6k each). oh well guess I'll have to try again

thanks for the quick help! and thanks for the excellent map !
