Default Arcane Domination

Hey, what's the proportion of converting magic resistance 9 units with this spell? Does it affect longdead and other undead? How effective is the spell?

Arcane domination only affects units tagged as 'magical creature'. They get +4 to MR IIRC, meaning maybe 25% of units with MR 9 will be affected. If you use several +pen items the number affected will go up.

I can't think of any undead it affects offhand. Master Enslave won't affect mindless undead (including Soulless/Longdead) either. For them you need Control the Dead.

If the undead is tartarians or other high-hp undead, not so well.

If it's legions of chaff, purgatory is great.

According to the manual, all undead creatures in your dominion are attacked. It isn't clear whether they all take damage or if they have a chance of avoiding it. Any way, I assume it'd kill huge amounts of normal longdeads in few turns' time, perhaps even something like 50%. This is just a guess, though.

From what I see it's all chaff. I have a billion priests anyway but I'm looking for a quick and devastating fix.

f you have an Air/Astral commander salted away somewhere (even a heavily boosted Crystal Amazon might work), add Wrath of God to the mix.
