Re: Playing as Kali

I've now successfully completed the Sharee game. Paladin and wraiths did the bulk of the work, with hydras appearing at the end. After that I finally had some luck with Horus and started on an island of my own. Early on I could hardly have been more pathetic, but my power level went nuts late game w...

Re: Playing as Kali

I started my second game as Sharee and believe I'm on the path to victory. I found myself a sizable continent opposed only by Ariel. After a bit of sparring I sent a fulls stack of hell hounds at her fortress, which was guarded by four units of swordsmen and single pack of hell hounds. The swordsmen...

Re: Playing as Kali

I finally finished my games as Freya and Ariel. The one as Freya, which I described some earlier, was totally wild. Never before have I seen so many powerful late-game effects. I used heavily buffed great wyrms as my main force and lost a few. (Stupid Jafar and his banish spell.) Merlin actually sta...

Re: Playing as Kali

For the record, AI wizards definitely send settlers through towers in my games. Now that I think about it, I've seen dark elf cities in Arcanus and barbarians in Myrror. Both right by towers.

Re: Playing as Kali

As an update, I've now won with Kali, Tauron, Tlaloc, and Rjak. I have games under Freya and Sss'ra in winning positions. Sadly, I saved over the Jafar game by mistake. Tlaloc provided surprisingly easy. I dominated on my first attempt by trading for wraiths with Rjak. Wraiths just crush everything....

Re: Playing as Kali

Unfortunately, I've already saved over the game. I'll keep an eye out for this sort of thing in the future, though.

Re: Playing as Kali

I'm not certain Jafar built the city on Myrror he returned to with settlers. It could have been a neutral city he conquered. I see enemy wizards expand across planes all the time, though I haven't paid careful attention to see how. I'll keep an eye on that. Empty islands/continents do tend to get ig...

Re: Playing as Kali

I just completed an epic game as Tauron. It was my first attempt. I received a lucky starting position on an island of my own, which I quickly conquered with hell hounds. I researched chimeras and felt confident about my odds against the two wizards on Arcanus. I stomped Jafar rather easily, but cou...

Re: AI spell use

I see giant strength and blur all the time. I'm pretty sure I've seen spell lock too.

Re: Playing as Kali

I think I've finally managed it with Jafar. I got a flying warship and banished Merlin but couldn't defend my fortress from Lo Pan. While I was casting the spell of return the warship continued to take cities until I foolishly went after a behemoth lair. I wasn't expecting giant spiders! Luckily, I ...

Re: No books

I tried no books plus trolls again and had similar success to what I remembered. The two troll units you start with can conquer many neutral cities by themselves.

Re: Playing as Kali

Yeah, I'm having a blast so far. My first attempt with Sss'ra ended with success. I haven't technically won yet, but I can tell it's a done deal. After an early blitz against neutral cities with heroic draconian bowmen, I had to battle with Freya for control of Myrror. Vast stacks of hell hounds did...

Playing as Kali

Lately I've been trying to win on impossible with the default wizards. (Large landmass, normal magic.) I chose Kali first because she has a late game trump card: She can create items of flying, magic immunity, and wraithform. Enemy wizard can't do much to heroes so equipped. In my first attempt I ma...

Re: Which game concepts in MoM are broken?

But one of the best spells in the game, confusion, is a resistance-based spell. With mind storm and/or black prayer, lots of resistance-based spells become awesome.

Re: To all impossible mode players

Another fun strategy that I've had success with is the hell hound swarm. The key picks are 4 chaos, channeler, conjurer, and chaos mastery. Beyond that you can play around a little. If you find an enemy wizard early enough, a full stack of dogs tends to do the trick. Sometimes you run into much more...
