Re: What do you find to be the worst unit in the default era

In wesnoth the worst unit is a matter of circumstance. Adepts are horrible against ulfs, and bats should never lead a charge against mages. Just keep in mind what is good against what, and you should never have a worst unit.

Re: Is a red mage worth it early in HttT?

Magical means that units with this trait will ALWAYS have a 70% chance to hit a unit.
This extra hit chance means the Level one clases of mages is better than the level one for shamans. Mages have a better survival chance than shamans, and a better chance to level up. :eng:

Re: Is a red mage worth it early in HttT?

The reason that we would want mages instead of shamans is for their health and early magical attacks. Shamans have lower health than mages, and no magical attacks. Mages have magical attacks, giving them a bonus for ranged attacks. Since in the short term of a battle, for mor damage output means mor...

Re: Assains or warriors

In wesnoth, your main objective is to kill the enemy leader, so is it better to kill him with one stealthy unit or a whole horde of powerful units.The stealthy unit can avoid enemy units, and the warriors can just cut, slash, and crush their way to the king, although by then the king would have gott...

Assains or warriors

Which is better? :hmm: Assains which use sneak to kill their enimies, often using ambush, nightstalk, or concealment to hide nearby. They have weapons specalized to kill fast and in one turn. Often chaotic, the assassin is often used to asssinate enemy leaders while your leader is a safe distance aw...

Re: Is a red mage worth it early in HttT?

The red mage is probably the most versatatle mage in the whole game. He is equally effective against undead as he is against humans. Considering that during most of the campaign, you fight humans rather than undead, the redmage is the better choice. As for the arch/silver mage choice, i would think ...

Re: You think a faction is overpowered? Come here!

Frankly I think that the regenative ability of the troll, combined with it's high mele attack and resistances, is really a bit overkill. On mountains it is Possibly the hardest unit to kill, and that's just for one. Considering that the dwarves when recruiting have no magical attacks, trolls vs dwar...
