Medallions of vengeance are now on the 'attack' line and can be used to cause a massive area of effect fire damage effect. not sure if its meant to be like that but it definitely seems broken. am i wrong? Its a construction zero item that has a five gem construction cost and it works even without the user dying now? or twice if the user does die?

Is there a way to run only a part of CBM? I am a relatively noob player (coming back to the game after a couple years off). I want to correct the balance of the pretenders but leave the spells and units vanilla as I have a terrible time figuring out what spells and units are good without referring to the manual and with CBM it's all different.

Anyway I seem to recall the ability to download or use only the pretender part of CBM, but that was a number of patches and versions ago.

Thanks!

It is indeed meant to be like that. Do you have interesting tales of someone winning a game with it?

Could you give some actual details? What nation are you? Who is using them against you? With what commanders?

Yea I assume its harder to actually make decoys for it. If someone has fire resistant army + 2-3 commanders wielding it attacking from the back. 16 AP on a AOE-8 seems to be quite a lot. (a possible suggestion tune it down to 8AP(as much as flaming weapons iirc) instead of 16) this way its not gonna be an army killed just a chaff killer.

A demonbred with one of these (available third turn???) can destroy almost any PD or initial expansion party. It is VERY hard to counter and VERY cheap. The problem i have especially is that it can be crafted without any research for only 5 gems. Its a great item but it should not be available so early or for so cheap.

isnt it a suicide mission for the 270 gold cap-only demonbred?

And how useful is it if you're not Abysia? Judging any single thing from a single point of view in Dominions is very wrong.

Spending 5 gems to (possibly) get a double explosion is not that great mind you, I'd go as far as saying it's a waist.

What would you say about LA Agartha Flame corpse constructs than? Those cost only 1 gem.

If the medallion is finally getting some use after being overlooked since it was introduced into the game than I say great.

actually its 260 gold, but the EA version is only 60.

now i have run some test, with the ma demonbred. without bless - according to my tests - and only equipped with a medallion he loses to 21 (independent) light infantry+heavy infantry nearly always. i didnt use any spells, but we are talking about early game, arent we? and he doesnt have much buffs to use with F2B2H2.

if i research a little to get to constr 2 and fire plate and helmet, then he becomes a little more succesful, about half the time he beats the 21 heavy inf+light inf. how are u (or ur opponent) doing ur thing?
