Re: Blood SCs

I assume the reason is that blood casters don't have much else to do.
In other paths, even if you have gems, there are likely to be a bunch of other spells you can cast that don't use any. Almost...

Re: immortal gods

This just sparked a thought that I don't have time to test at the moment:
Immortality works like healing.
Afflictions on units with old age don't heal normally.

Do old immortals heal?

Re: Battle script substitution?

I haven't tested it recently but I'm about 95% sure Sermon of Courage and Fanaticism only work once per unit and will thus not be cast once everyone within range has been affected. They give a static...

Re: communion mechanics

Let scouts carry the slaves. Keep them hidden and out of the fights.
It's best for gems too. It means they don't get killed off by a luck shot.

Re: is there a guide for machaka with current cbm?

The Black Hunters are usually considered not worth much of a bless. Once the rider has died, the Spider's MR is too low to invest much in.

Re: Conquest of Elysium 3 dev log

That may be true, but people do regularly make unwise decisions based on how the suggestions are presented. They shouldn't, but they do.

If you want your suggestions to have the best chance, wrap...

Re: Dispel

OTOH, using Dispel lets you choose which global to replace. Maybe you already have one or two globals up and don't want to risk losing them. Or you suspect one global to be up with minimal extra gems.

Re: Paralyze vs Stellar Cascades

I'm not saying that's not possible, but I don't recall it and I've never seen it.
For a long time it wasn't understood exactly why self-blessing sometimes didn't work.
I remember the suggestions...

Re: Paralyze vs Stellar Cascades

Nope. I did extensive testing on this at one point. You can see it clearly in the debug log if you really want to get into it.

In a little more detail: When the AI casts a spell, any spell, it...

Re: Man: A Bless nation in CBM 1.92?

I'm about 95% sure Magic Duel always targets the strongest astral mage. Highest path, not biggest or most hp.

Re: Paralyze vs Stellar Cascades

That's not a matter of Precision, but of how the AI picks targets and how the AoE spread works.
In short, instead of picking the sacred thug to target, it tries targeting several random units and...

Re: Making Hard Choices

Spectres, golems, hidden in sand. Pretty sure that's it (aside from tarts of course). I'm still hoping for CBM to add some more options for breaking into astral.

Edit: Lol. Lots of responses to...

Re: Huh ? Horror Mark targetting ?

Most single target spells prefer to target the largest (size & hp) enemy.

Probably good strategy, in this case. Horror marking won't win the battle, unless you're also spamming horrors. A bunch of...

Re: EA Ermor healing and healing mechanics

Empowering the unit with nature to become young should have worked though. As long as you had enough nature to get below old.

I have done that and seen it work.

Actually, I'm not sure I've...

Re: Some beginner gameplay and strategies questions

It likely has nothing to do with what the army from A did.

Occasionally 2 armies crossing will block each other instead of fighting on one of their territories. They will also sometimes swap...

Re: Blesses and ranged weapons

No, doesn't work. Flaming arrows only comes through the spell.

The fire bless only works on melee weapons.

Re: Blesses and ranged weapons

They do fire more often, but they also move forward. I've not quite figured out the pattern behind it.

It's really only worth it when the sacred archers are also melee capable. Which probably...

Re: Positional Awareness

Yes.
There does seem to be little advantage in doing friendly movement first. Moves of more than one province can pass through what will become contested territory

Re: Original source of Doom Horrors?

The inspiration is definitely Earthdawn. I believe it's been mentioned by the devs at some point.

Bogus & crew might be an Earthdawn party. They'd fit the rules there better than most other games.

Re: Doubtless dumb question...

The higher a mage's magic skills, the more research points he or she will have.

Re: Positional Awareness

Just to be clear, in this situation the AI is only being lucky in choosing to attack C, not in moving first.

Movement is resolved first.
If he attacks from B->C and you attack from A->B, both...

Re: Scales for the Jomon in CBM 1.92

I haven't tested this, but I believe Teaching Sign is the same effect as PotS, which would mean it won't stack.

Easy enough to test if you want to be sure.

Re: Fatigue is not very realistic!?

But the reach of a weapon is the same, regardless of whether it's scaled for a titan or a goblin.
That implies they don't scale.

Re: tactical issue

At this stage, the cure for glamour is arrows, slings, any kind of range weapon. They ignore and break glamour. Or any AoE magic.

I'm not sure about ethereal Vanheim. They don't have ethereal...
