Titantic Pride

Hmm... just wondering, any hints for getting out of the dungeon alive?

I can capture the rampart and am doing reasonably survivable above-ground, but the game just baffles me too much

Titanic Pride is a quite interesting map.  It's not DEEPLY story based, but it's got the basics.  However, it's no joke.  The expert player will most likely take it apart, but not quickly.

The new player shouldn't bother.  


that map is infact part of a trillogy wich includes Angellic Pride and Devilish Pride. all together they are preety nifty to play.have someone played"the longest journey"?That's preety cool. i also played recently a cool map called "world war". you guys must try theese two.

The solution is, that you allways CLONE your Archangels, next round you ressurect a unit with this 220 Clones (I think they ressurected about 70 titans!!), next round you cast a frostring near this clone, so that he is gone. Next round you cast this clone again, and this cloned AAs can ressurect AGAIN! So that is 18(?) points for clone and 7 points for frostring makes 25 points for ressurect 70 titans. If you cast two times ressurection, it will bring you about 26 titans back with a cost of 28 spellpoints. You see the difference?
So i lost every unit except the AncientBehemots (some of them too, because of retaliation..) on the first few rounds of the battle and with the tactic above, i needed only about 850 spellpoints to win this battle without any lost!


Something that can be useful to improve this tactic (specially in UtB): using fire wall spell cost less SP than frost ring (of course only at similar expertise, if you are expert water and novice fire cold ring is better ), unfortunately the 2 rounds duration is not enough to use it 2 times.

The use of the wyverns specialty can be very helpfull here to resurrect big numbers of creatures. You must use your wyverns very agressively so that they are the most damaged targets or else use 2 stacks of them (one for retaliation absorption and resurrection trick and one big stack). The trick is to cast berserk on the little stack of wyverns so they attack nearest creature (without killing it) until the poison effect takes place. Let pass 3 rounds, then repeat if necessary for a better HP ratio if 7/10 is not enough. You can reduce Hp to half original value, thus doubling the effectiveness of ressurection (spell or archangel specialty).

For resurrecting wyverns themselves if the stack has been destroyed or severely damaged, just resurrect a few of them by simple spell then clone them and berserk the clones (yes they can be berserked ).

The same thing can be done with ghost dragons but more difficult to put in place since the stacks berserked should be the ones you want to resurrect and must not kill the ghosts dragons before they retaliate. The advantage is that they immediately provide a 2/1 HP ratio.

Something I didn't test is the combination of wyvern monarchs and ghost dragons, should be interesting to see if you can reduce Hp to 1/4 of original value. I'll check this at home later...

Also, for a medium difficulty map (imo) with a serious surprise - try the old "THUNK" for Heroes 2.  I had stacks of 50 titans, etc and faced off with thunk when he had less than 12 of each.  He wiped me out.


There is a trick to beat him easily. In my game I used some heroes with 5 stacks of 1 gargoyle each. The idea is to make Thunk kill his own troops with the cyclops 2hex attack .
The lack of magic is the strenght but also the big weakness of Thunk. I don't remember exactly the coordinates where you have to put the gargoyles but the idea is to move only a few first round so the troops that attack them place themselves in a position where they can be hit by cyclopses in 2nd round. Ex: move 1 stack of gargoyle in a position where the cyclops kill them but have to move to a certain square. The second stack of gargoyles is set in a square where the ogre lords kill them but are at a 2 square distance from the cyclopses. Next round attack the cyclopses that kill the ogres or big part of them. repeat as necessary. You can kill all troops that way (except cyclopses of course).

Once you beat the 5 dungeon heros, get resurrect from the town behind them and get back to your initial inferno town. Capture the mines around + give the badge of courage before 1.4.7 then garrison your hero waiting the other Commando to unlock white border gate. With the other hero just follow the path, defeat fortress, stronghold, take boat, monolith 2 ways (2 ends), then look for hidden paths.

Just a short advice, a new campaign for SOD is out and can be found at Celestial Site. The name is "Master of Sighishoara" and it is a very well made campaign. If you enjoy slaying minotaurs, warlocks, mock on black dragons and lose your way in swamp, this campaign is for you!

I like the map Ad Hominen. Very old H3 map. It's French. Very little story. Nice design. Played it many many times. I also like Battle of Glory. Bridges to War. I could go on and on.

hey there,

I've recently started playing heroes again. And I've been looking for a map I played some years back. It was an SP XL map where u start with any castle you please on an island with all random monsters around(lvl 1-7) with about 5 random (maybe a few more or less) creaturebuildings. It was a very well made map. Your closed in on the island at first. Therse a flagtent u must visit to get off and theres a huge maze like underground with lots of monsters/artifacts and teleports.
I thought the title was something like 'impossible island' but I can't be certain of that. I've looked at all the sites I could find and map packs I've downloaded but haven't been able to find it. If any1 recognizes this description could u please reply...
