Hi, I'm posting another balance adjustments. This time isn't as extensive as the first time due the first time there were more things to do.

I am probably giving a 3rd part before May ends. Some units while their modifications ended being misscalculately stronger or weaker if they're analysed by other angles (for example, all summoner's scrolls had a small damage nerf mostly because of the lightfood warriors of sky kingdom and kharos [hidden faces and white warriors respectively]) thing that wasn't being considered at all ... also there is the complete analysis about that case in the .txt I've sent.

Era of Magic 2.2 (aka "portraits" release) is now available!

As the name suggests it, this particular release contains many portraits of various units. Some of them look cool, some others need improvements (believe me or not, all of them were made this week).

ForestDragon commentary on IPS suggestions:
Code: Select all
- 15% blade resistance for Master of Air, instead of 10%
-I fixed Mage of Water/Master of Water having 30% defense on reef terrain.
-increased the exp increase for Drone's AMLAs, made the defense module give +2 hp, added a +8 hp upgrade followed by the normal one, which has been reduced from +5 hp to +4 hp
-Carpet Master melee is 7-1, and has firststrike
-I didn't nerf Jinn's melee, considering the strength are his advancements' melees
-I decided not to nerf Novice Summoner's ranged, since as you seen, IPS seems to prefer units being fit for every situation. In my opinion, having units which are good at countering specific units is a good thing. besides, novice summoner can kill Hidden Face in 2 attacks during day even with the nerfed damage, and the unit needs to be at least decent against non-agile units too.
-Grand Summoner's scroll is 19-1, instead of 18-1, Summoner's scroll is 16-1 instead of 15-1, and Heavy Summoner's scroll is 22-1 instead of 20-1 (21 x 1.2 x 1.25 = 32 or 31, which means just barely failing to kill a full hp hidden face or white warrior. Still a noticable nerf, though)
-Made Earth Elemental line have 30% sand defense, just like flat.
-I didn't increase Troll Sorcerer's exp requirement, but increased cost to 19
-Summoning Air/Earth elementals now costs as much as summoning normal ones, considering their nerfs

Here I selected a few portraits included in the 2.2 release:

@inferno - Those are very well done portraits! I love the middle one and the wyvryn is also awesome! :D I am continually impressed at the quality and volume you create! Even though these are not 'traditional' wesnoth style portraits they are really good. 8)


I saw this portrait by darkbearslab and thought immediately of Era of Magic ^_^ It might not fit but i thought to mention it to you, because it is a very nice portrait and might work for one of your sprites! (maybe the golden mage if it had brown hair and normal skin ;) )
