Default Re: With enough arrows, even Death may die...

I started with the Warlock, which is a ton of fun.

You can summon elementals of 4 types, bind them (if a single, larger one spawns) or let them fight for you, summon giants or elemental lords. You can also summon elemental beings which give you a chance of summoning a champion that can use items. Your apprentice can do the same but is less efficient (takes more gems).

Binding earth elementals (emeralds) give you more hp (though it's more of a damage shield, as it doesn't heal), and you can keep adding them. Fire (rubies) give you a fire attack, which, like earth, is scalable. Water (emeralds) give you a healing ability and diamonds let you fly.

Cool thing about this class is that the elemental lords you can summon in a creature that is actually more efficient at summoning elementals than you are They can also lead and change the season. Earth can change it to spring, fire to summer, emeralds to autumn and diamonds to winter.

Anyone else try the Warlock? I couldn't figure out if there is any benefit in binding multiple water or air elementals . Also, for some strange reason, sometimes when I summon in an elemental lord, it's just a "critter" that can't lead, summon or change the season. Is this a bug or is there some kind of criteria?

No benefit from binding multiple airs or water. As for critters instead of lords I don't recall that in particular but it isn't a bug, just a bit of randomness.

Ah I just figured out that there is a cap on the number of leaders you can have. The cap itself could be dynamic, depending on some unknown factors.

When I demoted one of my leaders and summoned one the elemental lord became a leader as normal.

Well in that case you are correct. I didn't quite understand that what you were getting was a non commander version of the lord. There is a cap on the number of leaders as well as the number of units. The game is old and was originally developed on much much slower computers, so there are a few of those limits like that in the game.

Ahhh, interesting. I was wondering why my Efreet was a non-commander -- a very, very powerful one, but not a leader.

I have stomped around as a Necromancer, but it does take finding at least a graveyard before somebody else is ready to stomp you, and pref. getting a Flesh Heap.
How did you manage to get the flesh heap?

I even raised dead at a place where the necro was "overwhelmed by the level of dead" and only got beasts of disorders.

Does it have to be cast on a particular type of square?

Think it's quite random. I've seen it from a Graveyard animation, but not dependably.
