RTS genre iconRTT genre iconSimulation genre iconFantasy style iconyear 2009 icon
This is a statistic info for the Elf hero from Majesty 2 PC video game. Elves are the most mobile and curious units, thus they play an important role in the gameplay.

1. The blue slider above the avatar show the mana reserve. Elves use mana to cast some spells obtained from their home building, like Haste and some lovely arrow shots, like Entangling.

2. The green bar under the avatar is the elf health. It is not much, but elves tend to run from the battle and save themselve when things get messy.
3. Orange bar on the top is the hero experience and general level.

4. Left column shows equipped items and potions. This is the level 3 bow and level 3 medium armor, researched in the Forge. Then we have the healing potion and mana potion, which the unit use as needed in battle. Potions are obtained from the Magic Shop(bazaar)

5. Elf Statistics.
     5.1. First column:
  • Strength(the white fist) is the fighter statistic, it is not needed for elves, because it affects melee   damage.
  • Agility(the white aim) is the main Elf statistic. When hireing elves, watch that statistic, if it is les than 18, drop that elf and train another.
  • Intelligence(the white book) is somewhat important for an elf, because he have some spells to cast. It is good to be over 10, but having 20 Agility this particular elf on the screenshot is excellent one.
  • Stamina(the white bag caring) is important for hero running speed. For elves it have a maximum value of 12.
    5.2. Second column:
  • Ranged Damage(white arrow) - the amount of damage the elf do on hit with arrow.
  • Magic Damage(white lightning) - the amount of damage the elf do on hit with magic attacks.
  • Movement Speed(white run) - the move speed of the elf  maximum of 6
   5.3.Third column:
  •    They are the melee defense, ranged defense and magic defense of the unit.

Majesty 2 - Best Heroes Party Screensot

Majesty 2 - Best Heroes Party Description

RTS genre iconRTT genre iconSimulation genre iconFantasy style iconyear 2009 icon
When we have good amount of heroes on Majesty 2 PC video game we may search to create the most powerful and durable group. In that case we put the high level heroes. Variables are plenty, we can put only fighters or rangers, but a diverse group is a good idea. This suggestion is based on one tank fighter and 3 ranged heroes, one of them mandatory healer.
  • Fighter: There are 4 types of fighters, the basic Warrior, the Blademaster(third in group on screenshot), Paladins and the Dwarf. The Warriors are week, they need to be placed in the casual basic groups. The dwarfs are slow, they a perfect for defense not being in a group. Paladins are somewhat pretentious and best go alone or in group of 2 with some support. The blademaster seems the best choice, he also have some lovely special abilities.
  • Rangers: Some units have ranged weapons, like Hunters, Elves(first in group on screen), Bestmasters(second in group on screen). Ranged units are the support and DPS of the group. 
  • Mages: Spellcasters are the Mage, the Ice Mage and Sister of Crypta, Mages seems very good damage dealer, but they are very week. If we place a mage in a group, we have to ensure he is full supplied with potions and abilities, or he will perish very often, and resurrecting them cost a lot.
  • Healers: The most important heroes are the healers: the Clerics and the Priestess(forth in the screenshot). They will heal the party having enough mana and engage enemies with magical ranged attack 
  • Rogues: They are cool for scouting and harassing enemies.

Majesty 2 - Basic Group Assemble Screensot

Majesty 2 - Basic Group Assemble Description
Majesty 2 PC Game - More explanation screenshots
RTS genre iconRTT genre iconSimulation genre iconFantasy style iconyear 2009 icon
In Majesty 2: The Fantasy Kingdom Sim PC video game, we can assemble a group of up to 4 heroes. When in groups, they are more versatile than being alone on the battlefield. A basic group consist of one fighter, one ranger and one healer. Though the best basic group(in the screenshot) consist of one Elf, one Hunter and one Cleric. The Elves are very eager to make exploration quests, so they need to be first and lead the rest.

Making groups of 3 heroes, instead of 4 is a good idea, for them being more mobile. This way heroes cover more ground. When some of the group need to resupply potions and abilities, all the group will wait for him, so being 3, will wait less.

To assemble a group, click the Tavern building to open it. From there click the heroes who are in the Tavern to make the group. While the Tavern is opened, every free hero will rush to have a tasty, inspiring cold beer.

TBS genre iconTBT genre iconRPG genre iconFantasy style iconyear 2009 icon
In King's Bounty: Armored Princess PC video game we play with a female hero. Also there are certain artifacts that contain another dimensional castle to fight and upgrade the artifact to another level. Beside, sometimes these artifacts may go red, meaning their inhabitants are rebelling. In this case the artifact will not give its bonuses and we need to fight the rebelling creatures to content them.

Fighting these artifacts for upgrade is tough. We need a lot of mana to destroy the goblin towers, which have a lot of structure health points, with the most powerful spells, while the army is handling  the rival units. Mana can be obtained from the natural mana regeneration of the hero, or from the mana balls, that are carefully planned on the battlefield for a later use.

Here is a combat screenshot from Crossworlds expansion of KB. Every unit have its value, but some are more valuable. For example, it is very profitable to have Marauders in the party. They are not strong, but they have the ability to search fallen foes and allies and retrieve some gold from them. And high level bodies give quite a lot of precious gold. Ghost are cool too, they replenish their life when hurting enemies, making them a very durable party members. Well, they can not drain the life from mechanical units, like these robots on the screen, but things are never perfect.

TBS genre iconFantasy style iconyear 2003 icon
Age of Wonders 2 is truly one of the greatest games ever. It is a fantasy turn based strategy game with a lovely isometric graphic. Its variety oh heroes and races to develop and explore makes it quite interesting.

And here is Shira - a Tigran race hero. She has natural Bard skill that gives +200 morale to her party. This allow to include units from different alignment. If the morale of a unit is very low, it may desert and turn hostile. Actually some times it is good tactic for making extra XP. We produce one super duper strong army from opposite alignment(if we have the castle). We put it in a squad with our units and when it desert, we fight it and get the XP. Also here om the screen we can see a Tigran castle, a tower and a node.

UFO: Afterlight - Gathling Gun Ambush

UFO Afterlight - Gathling Gun Ambush Description
UFO Afterlight PC Game - More explanation screenshots
RTT genre iconRTS genre iconFuturistic style iconyear 2007 icon
It was a calm night on Mars, when one of the installation structures appeared to be attacked by the Rticulans. In UFO Afterlight PC video game, the Reticulans are not the strongest enemy, and they will even become allies at some point. Because the team was familiar with the terrain, they put on Gatling guns and positioned at the end of the forming tunnel on thе low ground. Gatling guns are the soul reapers for Reticulans, because they are physically week and come in many numbers, a spray of bullets from five soldiers is just a slaughter. During night, the team can't actually see them, but being psychically active, Reticulans are easily detected by Psi detection. Night vision helps too.

And Rita, always free minded and disobedient, she is standing over the highground with the shotgun observing the battle. Although her role seems lazy, she is guarding that one entrance from above (seen on the minimap)

  • Good weapons to fight the aliens in UFO Afterlight:
  • Reticulans - Gathling Guns, Snipers, Shotguns;
  • Beastmen - Shotguns, Plasma, Warp weapons;
  • Beastmen Pets - Shotguns, Gathliing Guns;
  • Martians - Saw Blades, Warp weapons;
  • Ghosts - Plasma weapons, Warp Guns.
