Default Huh ? Horror Mark targetting ?

Im kinda puzzled here. Huge fortress battle, i got 200 size 2 guys and a mother of nature god.
Defender has a bunch of lizards and a half a douzen abyssian demonbreds. Breds are apparently scripted to 5x Horror Mark.
Now, i would except the Breds to randomly hand out horror marks. Instead, what happens is that for 5 rounds, all demonbreds horrormark the mother of nature ?
wtf ?

Most single target spells prefer to target the largest (size & hp) enemy.

Probably good strategy, in this case. Horror marking won't win the battle, unless you're also spamming horrors. A bunch of single horror marked troops aren't really a big deal. A single heavily marked god is probably permanently dead very shortly.

Just gotta love horror mark followed by Hell Power...



It's just so wrong...

There were no demonbreds, just lizard-shamans and some mercenaries.
Shaman's script: slave, horror mark x 4

Most spells with AoE 1 person tend to hit the largest creature (your pretender). And heavily horror-marked pretender is doomed to meet Doom-horrors.

I have a game where my God is constantly duelling Eater of Heroes.

Are you implying that your god usually wins these duels? Because that is impressive.

Largest size creatures are always targeted on the battlefield. If you want to help protect her from horrormarks then walk into battle with LOTS of size6 creatures... like elephants.

Apparently its no big deal. I cant see how many of those markings actually hit her, but after 3 turns i got not a single horror attack, which leads me to believe that despite 25 attacks only 1 or 2 got through ?

Every single one got through. It`s just that chance of attack is like 1% per mark.

Horror marks are not resisted by MR.
