Tiger,

While I agree that WoD's are slow, I really think their biggest problem is that they are brain-dead. Their speed can always be overcome by adding Lunord and selectively casting winged feet....So that they can race into the jaws of death even faster......

you never learn do you mister mage, one has eaten your hat, one has tried to kill you, and they are the toughest creature in the game.

I agree with AnimeDragon, high level cultists shoud have a 4th spell enchant inteligent creature, and be able to enchant dragons, rock golems, enemy heros etc.

--Sighs--
Even though Dragons are disgustingly evil, they do look cool.
I agree. High level Cultists should be able to enchant any monster. He should have to be around a level 15-20 Cultist though.

Imagine an army of winged beasts that will swoop down upon your enemy and destroy them! What a glorious site it would be!

WoD's are not stupid, they are mentally challenged

And thats not all bad. In one of the epiq quests you have to get through a 4-5 Daemonwoods to get to the Boss-castle, which contains a nasty dude. Now, even a level 1 WoD will quite often go for a 400 gold award on a D-wood. With 4 WoD's you should have at lest 2 or 3 happily bashing away.
Most level 1 paladins are to smart for that
All you have to do is heal them, they will quickly level up, and have over 100 hp, so timed right you get a ok value even when healing for 400 gp.
And the best part is, when one D-wood goes down, theres a really good chance the WoD will move on to the next. A paladin has a much better chance of:
- Going to the blacksmith or marketplace
- Fleeing home
- Chase a ratman with a 100 gp reward on the other side of town
- Praying for the lost soul of the D-wood

Those are unlikely choices for a WoD with the adrenalin pumping - dedicated figthers, they are!

So, if you got the money, and really want the job done in a hurry :razz:

This is in singleplayer, in MP they are probably more or less useless.

And besides, WoD's are Lovers of Chickens (WoD LoC, say it loud with a bad german accent!)- sort of unfair competitions for the local roosters IMO

Paladins usually do go and fight the next beast near them, unless they need healing... Sometimes they even go attack another enemy if they are near death... quite annoying, I have to say.

I like paladins. Mainly because you get healers and monks. I like healers a lot, but its the only reason I go for paladins.

Cultists would be way too powerful if they could charm ANY monster such as dragons and Golems. The most powerful things they should be able to enchant would be minataurs. Then they'd be nasty enough without being too overpowering.

What do you mean Chris? I'm not exactly sure what you're talking about. But if you mean that healers should be given the ability to resurect dead heroes the way you have to use the resurrect soveign spell then I think that would make the healers way too powerful. I mean think about it. If a healer was accompanying a large force they'd be practically invincible because the healer would heal them constantly and then bring them back in the off chance that they'd die. It's not that I wouldn't like them to be doing that in some single player scenarios but.. it just would off set the balance of the game.
But if you read my Cultist stink and reek threads in this board you'll see some pretty good suggestings we've come up with to improve those zany little cultists. Personally I think another thing that would improve cultists would be if their charmed beasts attacked whatever they were attacking.

i had meant for the healer spell to offset the cultist spell. but maybe if a priestess could resurect a hero but it would lose a level?

Dr. DimWit:
I have experienced similar difficulties with Paladins. Many a time has it been when I could have won the game if the Paladin(s) had decided not to go back to the freakin' Warrior's Guild...

As for keeping WoDs alive, hotkey them, and always have the highest level WoD in the window in the bottom left corner of the screen. It helps a lot since you got to baby-sit them so much.

Tiger:
I agree with ya- Cultists should not be allowed to charm Rock Golems and Dragons. Makes them waaay too powerful.
