Pretty much anything can be crafted. The thing is, if you do manage to defeat these invading stacks, the attacking faction usually doesn't keep much of anything back to defend their territory. I like to specialize, maximize, level it up, and overpower. I guess this is meant to talk a little more about racial and faction traits that I haven't mentioned yet. I always build Conclave in my internal territory and Fortress near the border.
Traveling from one end of a city to another takes no move. You will receive a short description of the task in the quest section of your Empire tree, but it's better if you remember some of the information from the briefing - it may come in handy. Such a behavior is a pain in the neck, especially when you have to move army from point A to point B and you are asked to leave the territory. Spell mastery: chance that a spell cast by the unit is not resisted. Attack is stackable with a similar calculation, so is Defense armor rating , so is Initiative Defense, sadly, isn't multiplied by the number of soldiers it's a property of the unit. So it's very possible for you to summon Delin, spending 500 mana, and have him not queuing up in the initiative queue in time to act, only perhaps contributing to swarming action.
Defensive+Krax blood increases the effectiveness of militia a lot. Not an issue, the Henchmen have most of the benefits of a Hero without the main penalty of the divided Experience. You can also upgrade your outposts by sending more pioneers to them. If you have a Fortress city where you train your units, imagine you place Aura of Might, Aura of Vitality, and Aura of Fire. Trolls are also 'monster' units much like Ogres, also available to Empire factions only. Blink- Teleport to any location on the battlefield. The race: Krax blood, empire, enchanters, defensive, light plate, lucky, master scouts, vulnerable to magic The sovereign: General, Death, Water, brilliant, wealthy, hardy, clumsy, rusty sword.
What form that military might may take is up to you. This situation may perhaps call for an early-game military rush, and that can indeed also make for a good solid start in its own way. Hergon Sow- A smaller version of the pushy male of her species. However, monsters at least that I've see so far anyway only move 1 tile per turn regardless of their movement points, and you can safely count on that. With enough mana and magical knowledge, great feats of sorcery are possible A city can become ashes in moments A city was once here Take the battle to the enemy Perhaps you will be successful in avoiding war.
Gold is a metal, and you mine it. Hergons have high movement and every time they attack a unit they knock it back a tile, messing with defense lines and attempts to control the battlefield. Rather than try to find common characteristics, I will try to describe how quests can differ from each other. They have few other uses, which is why their numbers are usually lower compared to the number of towns and conclaves. In general though, you want a tile with high Food, Material, and Essence.
This is also why units in leather armor and with swords or other weapons , Roman Legginnaire-style, remain very competitive throughout most of the game, because they'll have high initiative. For example, a conclave's Alchemy Lab improvement gives +1 Mana +1 per Essence, +1 Research +1 per Essence, and +1 Material per Essence; a Temple of Essence, which you can only build one per faction, provides -10% Unrest and +1 Mana per Essence in the city where it's built. Instead of spoiling it for you, I will say a few words about quests in general. These two numbers are the same, and are called the 'moves' of an unit. Even better, the diverse lot of 10 Sovereigns up by two since Fallen Enchantress spread out among multiple factions each has widely varying and strategically significant racial abilities that reward repeat playthroughs and experimentation. Research is a measure of the ease with which you master new technologies.
Saving a few seasons of healing across the entire Army really adds up over the course of the game. Again, if you're not focusing on unit military design, or if you have some kind of penalty to your units, your melee heroes can still remain an important piece in your army puzzle. I did not design the game, my advice was no more followed in the Beta than anyone else, and it is not even clear that I am a good player, not without multyplayer. On lesser maps rules are different. Sovereigns and Champions remain at the heart of the action as you scour the world for resources to build your empire, and the relatively small band of trainable combat units you can bring with them grants Legendary Heroes' so-called armies an air more akin to a Tolkien fellowship — perfect for this theme. I always make my capital a town, so I can sustain positive income in early and possibly in mid and late stage of the game.
For some reason I don't use these tools much. When I'm given a choice for a new hero, I tend to pick one that has a spell school that I don't have yet, unless I feel like having some of the unique melee and fighting skills some heroes have, for example. Henchemen from the Altar faction do add party experience if you pick the commander tree for them. Any unit, even a pioneer! If you like having lots of money to support a large military and maintain a large territory you're going to give your best city locations to Towns; if you need mana and magic more than anything else, your best locations will have Conclaves in them. I suppose there are ways to compensate for this penalty, such as planning for, and focusing on your research efforts, but you'll always be dependant upon your terrain quality. Remember you won't have 40 cities in a average game, you'll be restricted to just a few, at least in your early and mid game. We understand there can be differences in opinions and that's okay.
Otherwise, not only do you have to be careful about leaving your units military ones, scouts, pioneers, everything next to monsters when their turn ends, but most importantly, you're more or less constrained as where you can build cities, if settling spots are near monster lairs. If your unit's rating is 5, you'll strike with 6; if it's 12, you'll attack with 15. Still, this is strictly a very narrow, early-game bonus, and it affects the sovereign only. Some harvasteable resources increase +1 Grain Wild Grain or +1 Material Clay in the city, and they stack if there's more than one. He will give you things in exchange for using your powers to fuel the doomday counter. For example, ogre and troll recruitable camps a resource on which you have to build a camp to have these units in your armies are only available to Empire factions, while Knights of Asok are only available to Kingdom factions. By this stage, your cities are mostly all in a contiguous and solid-looking territory block, eliminating for the most part Unrest from not being in 'touch' with your capital.
