Question Blood stones and MR

Hi everybody, I am curious to know couple things I can't work out on my own:

- do Blood Stones (B3E2) still exist in latest CBM? Looks like I am unable to manifacture them.

- Is it possible to use multiple spells to increase an army's MR, like Antimagic and Army of Lead?

All help appreciated!

I believe Blood Stones are CNST 8 in CBM. Key word Believe.

Mattyburn7 is correct - bloodstones are now unique items.

No, they do not stack.

That's the one reason that I dislike cbm.

Gem gens are unique...

And they are the best things in this game...

I was playing Helheim in a vanilla game and had 100 bloodstones...

That rocked...

Pun intended...

Oddly enough, the one reason that I enjoy CBM more than vanilla is the lack of Gem Gens. Worst part of the game. If I want to spend my days keeping track of who is producing what kind of gem and what not, I'd probably have studied accounting.
Gem Gens are probably the worst design aspect of Dominions 3.

I look at it as a engineering project...

Making toys for end game conflicts...

There's a lot of love for clams and blood stones...

At least in my crowd...

... and illustrates perfectly how one man's ceiling is another man's floor.


Ideally, if Gem Gens could be made optional...

Best wishes,

If anyone wants CBM without the gem gens removed it would take less than five minutes to make such a version, *including* looking up the documentation. It's only a text file, you can open it in notepad.

However, personally I think removing gem gens is one of the best things CBM has done (it was quantum_mechani, not me). A very brave decision given the number of people who'd become attached to their gem gen strategies, but one that I think greatly improves the enjoyability of the game.
