I tried out my Dryad-steal challenge. It was tougher than I thought. By the time the Rogues could afford Shapeshift Tinctures, there are plenty of other things on the map to distract them from stealing.

I did it!

Found a way with a high chance of success.

I think I'll put this challenge in Heroic Achievements.

Wow, I've been away for a while and this post just took off. The large ratman in both regular and expansion will slash at your marketplace and you will lose a significant amount of cash (up to quarter of what's there or so). Their first two swipes reduce the amount in your market, after that they only do damage. It may vary, but I'm certain I've seen this. Trolls do not steal that I'm aware of and I'm not sure about the ratman champions, archers or preistiss etc.

Hey Tiger, I'm pretty sure I saw a wizard shapeshift and attack a minotaur before. Don't see why though; magic would have been much more effective.

Ratmen stealing is a boost to your low-level heroes economic wellbeing, a little hero comes up kills the ratman and suddenly has teh entire days income of the marketplace to spend, htey just run back in and spend it getting some nice rings and things whilest inside.

ratmen are not a boost! if the hero does spend it another ratman comes and steals again. or a troll mercilessly sacks your tax collector. then your palace guard kills it and not being a hero, doesn't take the money. POOF no money. Great economic boost that is!

I sometimes like Ratman stealing from my Marketplace. I put a 100 gold reward on him and a hero or two will likely get rich.

Somehow, I prefer heroes earning gold by getting the Ratmen, rather than me just giving it to them with reward flags.

Krypta/Fervus give you more non heroes so that perfectly reasonable strategy doesn't really work for me. Another reason to embrace Dauros. I prefer Solarii. I shall look into Adepts. Do they actually balance out against the Solarii?

Depends on the situation, but over-all... No.

My comment was based on their ability to kill rats and ratmen before they reach your marketplace, usually.
I like the adepts better when I go Dauros because the Solarii aren't really better than Paladins, so its duplication, while the Adepts are good at protecting my town from the myriad pests.

I think it goes a something like this:
Meelee hero = transforms into a minitaur
Ranged hero = transforms into a dryad
Magic usin hero = transforms into a medusa
And cultists of course transform into Hellbears
