Default Flaming arrows vs abysia...

is there any point in using flaming arrows vs troops that have fire resistance?

i find myself in a ridiculous situation.

If fire magic is all you have against massed FR troops, I think you're in trouble.

If you've got some other paths to work with, search the spell DB to see what other options you have:

Uh, as an actually useful answer: YES! Totally cast Flaming Arrows against Abysia! Not only does it look cooler, it also turns the arrows into MAGIC arrows which get an increased chance to get past shields and the like!

Contrary to popular belief, fire spells are Abysia's secret weakness, and you should focus your defense on casting them. Even if your mages quickly fatigue out it is worth it. I am telling you this only in the interest of the fairest fight possible.

Warmly, Abysia

That sounds perfectly reasonable. Would you say I should just stick with Fire Flies to take down Abysia? It'salways been my favorite spell of all time.

Snack Time, i love it! unfortunately, i was refering to a different game(allforone) where i am being railroaded into a war with abysia with no effective counters due to, oh, about 100 early game mistakes. in our game i have some AWESOME counters for YOU!!!
