Oh I had remembered !

"Raise Skeletons" are also useless, when you get "Raise ghosts.

By the way, Are "First strike" and "Snake strike" do the same ?

Raise Skeletons is perfect maneuver. You cast spell and attack with skeletons a strong stack of creatures. Skeletons get killed but your strong creature can attack the same stack and will not get retaliation.
Try cats strike (attack) whatever the right name. Did you aver see what damage can 3.5K orcs can do with this spell on them? 35 angels get wiped out. BTW 20 getting down after the first strike.

I allways confused with "Martyr"

It's confusing to cast "Martyr":
When you whant to cast this spell it is said: "Cast Martyr on friendly creature", then I ALLWAYS cast on wrong creature or hero.

It is good, that you can cancel casting

casting quicksand

I agree that casting quicksand is tricky. But you may want to try this:

-Select the quicksand spell from your spellbook
-Click with your cursor (that now looks like a spellbook)  on the place where you want the quicksand to cast. A wheelbarrow will appear now.
-Drag the wheelbarrow carefully from your starting place to where you want the quicksand to end. When you have used up 24(?) feet of quicksand, the wheelbarrow will automatically disappear and the spell is cast.
-When it happens that you keep dragging, but the spell isn't cast, you probably dragged your cursor over a place where a patch of quicksand cannot be placed. And if there was a place, it may not have been big enough. In these cases, don't keep dragging but cancel your spell and select it again from your spellbook. Usually that gives a better result than waiting for the computer to cast it.

With this tips and some practice, you should be able to cast quicksand with fairly good accuracy. One last tip though: if you have summon water elemental, cast that one instead and let the water elemental cast quicksand. The spell is extremely useful and, if well used, reduces the movement of even the fastest grunts to 1. Succes!

Sparks is like a magical melee attack that cannot be retaliated against. It doesn't do much damage (2/3 of magic arrow) but it works with a hit and run strategy. Let your hero wait, enemy stack moves within the movement radius of the hero, hero cast sparks on enemy stack doing a magic attack and in the next round immediately runs back. After that, the cycle starts over from the beginning.

When should sparks be used instead of magic arrow? Beats me...

how to cast sparks

you cast the spell (select it) and then attack the unit you want to attack. the advantages are that you won't get a retaliation and that it has the same effect as the breath attack (meaning you can hit several units when formed in a line), you do however have to walk to melee range, making the caster vulnerable to attacks. a melee fighter could take the blow, but then his normal melee attacks are stronger. a sorcerer could just as well cast a different spell which is stronger and safer.

the only circumstance in which i may use it, is early in the game when i already cast bloodlust and don't have magic arrow.

soooo, pretty useless...
