Trivia questions

1) Browsing through one of many H3 galleries, I found a concept art for a skull in a green cloud. Was this supposed to be one of the creatures for the infamous Forge town or what?

2) I came across a picture on the net displaying the standard H3 dialogue box, saying: " (blah blah)... Fear( disabled)." What would that be - a spell?!

3) Has anyone installed Warcraft 2 Mod for H3? What was it like?

Fear

The spell "Fear" is the speciality of the AZUR-Dragon.
If in a battle against Azurdragons "fear" happens on your army (i donīt no the percentage exactly), a foggy skull comes over your unit and this round is lost for that unit!

But this spell is disabled for heroes, even if they have all tomes or the grail in the conflux town.
(the same like you couldnīt spell "acid breath"--- the speciality of the RUST-dragon)

Hope i could help

1) I know what fear is. However, that wasn't the ability of Azure Dragons... It was as if fear was an enabled spell, and then disabled. The picture showed an eye. Again, I've never seen such dialogue box in the game.

2)No, there was a different Power Lich concept artwork. This was just a skull with horns and no body at all. I'm sure it was never used, but what was it supposed to be?

Haha... yep, I know about that Fear spell.
It is NOT the Azure's special. The developers wanted to make a spell, but then they decided not to include it. So they disabled it, but left it in the resources. I suppose you got that message from a Pyramid, where getting this spell is not disabled, coz it's 4th level. I've tried to enable that spell through cracking the resources, and I did it, but spell doesn't work (when I click its picture during the battle, it just returns me to the battlefield without performing any action.
Another interesting thingie like that is the Market of Time, I suppose more people know about it. If you want to see what it is, get RoE 1.0 from somewhere and play "Warmongers" map.
For that artwork... Don't know what it is, perhaps THAT is the real animation of Fera spell?
And about the mod... I tried to install it, but the game was very very angry, it started to cry about some missing/corrupted resources and so on and so forth. So I had to reinstall SoD. But I've seen the screenshots, looks like some artwork was replaced with pics from Warcraft II. Plus new hero portraits. Plus a map which is perhaps somehow connected with WC2 storyline.

Odvin, you are kinda wrong. Azure, Rust Crystal and Faerie (not sure about the last one) Dragons are fearful. It means that when there's a, let's say, azure in battle, there's a chance that some of the opponent's creatures will freeze of fear. Kinda similar to low morale effect, only different animation.

AAARGH!

How do you edit or delete posts on this forum? I'm afraid I've just misplaced another post.

Anyway, back on topic: Lord Woock, I think he explained very well, thank you. And you must be a HoMM veteran to state that Crystal and Rust Dragons are fearsome.

Well, actually, no. I'm not a veteran. I've read that in the "A trivia game of our own" thread.

The question was:

What do the eight level creatures (Azure, Crystal, Rust and Faerie) have in common?

The answer was "the special ability: fear".

Actually, odvin is totally right about fear- its meant to be a spell for the hero but it was eventually taken off. When a hero has ALL spells (via cheats etc.) and uses scholar skill to trade spells with another hero, it will go

"blah blah blah blah blah blah taught blah blah blah fear (disabled) to blah blah blah."

The icon for fear is a wide open eye.

Hope you understand what i mean.

Lord Woock, I'm not quite sure that there are any creatures in SoD except Azure that have the fear special. In fact, I'm quite sure that there are not. Maybe it was just a mistake in the trivia. Or maybe it is just my mistake, but I've never seen anyone to "freeze from the pure fear" in presence of Rust/Crystal/Faerie.

Oh and one more wrong thing about the trivia:
Faerie is level 8.
Rust, Crystal and Azure are all level 10.

@Kuma:
Now you call yourself a mod after that?? A mod is supposed to help newbies... at least redirect them to the faq...

@Lich_King:
Well, in that case he should have also mentioned the bottle (or how that glass is called in English )... anyway, it would be best to see the artwork itself posted here, or at least the link. Then it would be much easier to judge.
Btw, it can also be something from the beta of homm3, I've seen some screens of homm3 beta and it some things vary much from what we actually see in the release.

Kuma, the problem was I didn't log in with the same capitalization of my nickname so the "edit post" didn't show up then. Rarely have I came across such a problem on other forums; that's why I was confused.

However, thanks to your enlightening explanation, everything is clear to me now. Again, thank you very much..."mod".

Sorry everybody, I can't remember the link but if I ever find it again I'll share the pics here.
