please keep in mind that those arts only are sketches and final concept arts might be different in term of style and posing (yes the Apprentice is on the carpet :)). Official concept arts will be available soon. Those "t-poses" as we call them are used by our team to apprehend in game 3D modelling of the creatures.
So the Djinn will probably look as shown before. Such a shame... I already thought I will like them :P
Btw, could you tell us if the un-upgrade model for Rakshasa is similiar to the Rakshasa Rani from H5, or there´s not that big difference between the basic and upgraded one ?
Oh, no... No carpets please! This pose is awesome, I was so glad when I saw it, and I'm dissapointed now...
I hope you guys keep the flying carpet, such a great idea :)
Don't change anything! The way they are now is already great! And yes, Disciple on the magic carpet!
Female Djinn as Hero - OK
Female Djinn as Unit - FEMINIST PROGANDA ATTACK! EMPOWERING WOMEN! RUN!
STOP USING DOUBLE STANDARDS STUPID IDIOTS!
AND DEAL WITH IT!
it is because they change the gender of a male legend to justify it for some resound. and that is really stupid.
LoL. Feminist Propaganda is not the same thing as empowering women.
Feminism has been more of like female supremacy than looking out for women to me.
And no, I don't go by the word definition. Action speaks louder than words.
But anyway, I won't mind the female Djinns now. Devs gave us awesome Apprentice, Rakshasas and Titans. These guys are more than enough to make up for the Djinns.
How is female Djinns "empowering" wonen they are slaves to male Wizards, who have to do every thing they say.
Feminism has not even got a big hold in the developer's own country. I don't see how it is the influence at work behind putting some female units in...
It's not the devs, it's Ubisoft.
And you think male players do not like seeing female units? oO They are catering to their key demographic. I like male units, as well, especially good looking ones like the elven ones, but in the end they're there to die at your command, anyway. Not exactly empowering stuff.
Nagas, Pixies, Pegasus Riders, Medusa, Harpies in Heroes 3 were all part of a feminist agenda too, apparently. xDDD
And don't forget that Gelu kind of looked like a woman too :P
Ubisoft pls make the vampires look less like soldiers and more like Aristocrats of the night!
I found a cool looking lich as well!
I kinda agrees with you, but just the vampires has some amor...
If it will look better, i can roll with him having a cloak instead of his armor. To look more like a rich snob! :)
I would also like to see vampires with fancier weapons, rapiers maybe?
Agree! Best lich ever!
@Chiasa, they guy does have a rapier i think.
lich - such is needed, very best !
vampire - looks bad
I think rapiers' blades are more narrow, but can't be sure.
Still when I said 'fancier' I meant in comparison to the big ass swords they had in previous games. :)
not bad but I would prefer to see necro in more darker style less colorfull more scary...
somtehing like this for lich maybe..
Yup i like the dark look of that lich! Necro in H3 was nice, with its dark theme!
The vampire looks really nice, wow. I really like the sword, the mouth covered in blood, almost everything! just change the head a little bit and we have perfect one <3
denisa016 : I don't like your vampire pic, I think Vampires should look like Murnau's Nosferatu (à la H3)
I have to admit, i really hope for this kind of lich, it's perfect.
Devs, could you please moderate the comment sections and remove hateful or inappropriate posts? Its not okay for gay/bi/trans ppl or, woman for that matter, to have to put up with all the hate in here. We are all fans. There are probably children Reading/posting here as well. You have an responsibility.
Agreed! But I think they might be on a holiday now for they only update the website occasionally.. I'm sure they'll make the site better when they're back ^^;.
Ahh hell NO
first of the game is 12+, and i think must 12 year old as hear or seen why worse thing then what is sad here.
And secondly censer sheep is never the answer to any thing. if someone is spewing bull shit then just put them in there place with better comment or IGNORE THEM, for crying out loud.
There has never come anything good out of censoring people, if they say stupid shit, that just makes them look stupid.
Censoring is something religious, feminist and other forms of cults use.
The only things that should be ban is
*Personally hate full massages (bulling)
*harmful links (virus or porn)
This is a place for ideas, so any form of ideas should be allowed, no matter how stubid they are.
Dude, who insulted gay/bi/trans ppl?? Nobody!
Nobody? A lot of people did.
Evidently the process of becoming a disciple involves growing a beard.
And a fancy one, too ;D
Maybe I should get a beard, maybe I can't grow a beard (of oblivious reasons) , maybe I already has a beard...
No matter what, beards are epic!
Yes, grow a beard! Your avatar would indeed look epic with one;DD
And that explains Sar-Elam's gender ambiguity: female apprentices also have to grow a beard in order to become disciples :P
Even Kaspar has had enough of your gender arguments!
Cheers to that!
Sadly, he has not recovered from his "state".
way too rushed. Would have preferred a more detailed article later
I love the Djinn
Your efreet very large, it is necessary to make a champion )))
I love the Efreet !
Russians would already send long ago your troll Jeremiah )
Russians would already send long ago your troll Jere
I love the Djinn , I too )
@Necro : "Your efreet very large, it is necessary to make a champion"
I don't know why Djinn gets all the hate, it's looks fine to me. H5 Djinns had a bit goofy appearence, and this one has cool design people! Alos good to hear that Apprentices/Disciples will work more or less as their previous itereations counterparts.
my biggest concern is that they change Sar-Elam's gender just to support their female Djinns.
Seriously? They changed one character's gender to justify female Djinns?
They change nothing, they say that nobody knows...
which is a change from him being a male.
and you need to this into context, right now there is a huge "war" between gamers and femi-nazis.
so some people feels like this is UBI take a stands with the Femi-Nazis. so if that was not going on the problem would probably not be this big. of course there will always be some one complying about everything.
it is just really bad timing
Techniccally speaing Djinns(?) don't have specific gender and can choose their appearence. It concludes that Sar-Elam wasn't "He" nor "She", but "It", deal with it. And I really don't give a damn about what "Gamers" thinks about "Femi-Nazis" (BTW ridiculous term by itself) and vice-versa.
Just now I have noticed...
UBI, please, CUT OFF DJINN THOSE LEGS , MIST WITHOUT THEM IS WAY COOLER!!!
sorry fo capslock but I do not see any purpose for those legs, woithout legs she would look like she is levitating, with legs like she would have some gastric problems
I all previous video, we didn't see legs... so it won't be really important.
but there was too little time to see anything in detal so who knows, I judge this art as it is
I think this is just for the modelization. Just to check at what height they should levitate.
If not this is a disaster...
Not even funny, all time i look here we got people complaining about female units.
Get over it, they are not planing to change this because some people want their personal preferences, it's as the same for line-ups...
So like it or not but don't be surprise there is no change.
Yeah, lets just begin discussing some of the awesome features they could add to the game...
I know what I don't want them to add: Conflux and crap drm :)
@chiasa there won't be conflux anymore. You'll need to activate the game once via internet at start and that should be it.
I understand that. That's why I'm sharing my opinions about the Druids before they go in the design phase.
We don't wait until the final design, they can't change that anymore.
Oh, great, thanks for info :D
hmmm and didn't they said in the twitch live they are possibility to implement the random skills to an optional way something like this right ?
My guess is for skirmishes and multiplayer we could play either way with random or not... i guess.
And i don't see lots of people asking for it here? :p
Would be great if random skills were back :3
I loved H5 skill wheel, H6 was soo boring in comparison, it's good that they consider it.
Btw, I think discussion about skills took place in Armies and troops article, here be troll wars :)
@Kain they said if we keep shouting about random they MIGHT implement it as optional, but not holding my breath... Never even got to hear the reasoning behind non-random aside "we talked about it and decided to go with non-random"(not the real exact words)
I think unlimited skills would be nice for long skirmich or mplayer games. Usually after level 30 you cannot gain new skills.
rambosurina : Yep that's pretty much what they said, so we'll see if they saw us about that. :D
For the 100 time, nobody is complaining about female units! Were simply saying some units look bad, wtf? U cant read!
I have an idea. How about we vote the genders of the Sylvan units? Make one badass male Druid then a female unit then we vote.
Why are you so concerned about the gender of the Druid, Jeremiah? I'm honestly curious. I've seen a lot of posts where you bring this up.
Because I like male units and Druids are my favorite units that's why.
Now, the Apprentice/Disciples might take that spot but Druids were my favorite in H5.
ok, I can a bit understand why a male and not female should be in place of justicar (wearing armour and slashing enemies with a sword all the time require a very well built persons)
But druid? come on, users of magic do not have to have more muscels or be bulkier...
at least wait for a model or concept art
I've understood by now that you like male units, and that's fine :) (though, I must admit I don't understand the reasoning behind it) .
But couldn't a druid have a badass design and cool abilities, yet also be female? Not trying to troll you or anything, I just want to understand where you're coming from.
a bulky Druid would be awesome. Why Druids can't be bulky? They can't spend an hour running through the forests of Irollan and benchpressing stones to keep their health up?
Anyway, me wanting male Druids is the exact same reason why mediczero wants female Vampires. I want to. Why do I have to be criticized and not him?
Be patient, the (probably) female druid has a chance to be way more badass than everything we have seen before. Simply wait...
mediczero, do you think male Vampires are more badass than female Vampires?
JeremiahEmo I believe that females can be as badass as males...
ya know those women who look up beauty magazines and appreciate women's bodies? Now, have you seen guys who look up bodybuilding magazines and idolize fellow men's bodies? Now these girls, would they appreciate guys in beauty magazines? No. Aside from lust, would guys appreciate girls in bodybuilding magazines? No.
That's the same thing with me and Druids.
bulky druid can be awesome but as dwarf or as human, elves aare more sublime, more fragile. And studyng the lore and spells mean that they do not have enough time to be as bulky as war dancers
You think females are badass than males period.
I'm not criticizing you, just trying to understand. If you feel I'm somehow criticizing you, I'm sorry. See, for me, the gender of the creature is irrelevant. As long as I like how the creature looks, and its movement and the stuff it can do, I don't care what gender or sex it is. So I guess it's just hard for me to wrap my head around a concept where you like a creature more or less based on its gender. That's all.
I said as badass, not more badass...
It's good that you understand. By the way, I was explaining myself in my last post in reply to you.
So if Vampire males are more badass in design, would you accept them over Vampire females?
Yup, I'm not crying over the gender of the creature if it fits with it's origin. I'll be happy no matter what gender the vampires has, but I want to see what they can do with a famale vampire...
You know Jeremiah, not everyone's as close minded as you that there's only one right and acceptable creature design...
who ever said the druid will be female?why are we debating this? the fact that they gave a random artwork for the druid does not mean he will be a lady. as it does not mean that the troglodyte will look all pixelted as shown. relax dear!
ya know close-minded is defined as people unaccepting of other people's opinions. You are unaccepting of mine so that makes you close-minded as well.
You are actually. You've just had multiple posts of demanding several creatures to be females.
I am just say that I think some units could be cool if they was female. It is only really a problem for me if they make a creature like the dryad or snow maiden male (of the single reason, that they are creatures that only can be female)
This article seems rushed... Many pics missing and also, just a sentence or two for creatures? Really?
Really you only now notised that they rush thier articles? Look at the votings, that says enough.
To all people concerned about gender theme:
This is Might and Magic: Heroes. earlier known as Heores of Might and Magic.
Please do not confuse it with 'Right and Classic: Males' or 'Males of right and classic'
Women (both as units and heroes) were always present in this series
Well said! I'm only concerned because I believe that some creatures could be cool in a female version (because I liek female creatures)
with the same logic, I can also say this is Heroes of Might and Magic not "Females of More and More"
Also Druids are more badass in male because me like male creatures.
Here we go again
Okay, heroes V druids was badass, but can't you please wait to complaining about the druid till we see the oficial design?
You don't understand. If we get to the official design of female Druids that means we're going to miss out potential male Druids regardless. They will never redo what they already made and understandably because making a design takes time.
Better play safe with my favorite creature. Well, I like Druids better male anyway because I like male units.
Would you could accept it, if the druid looked like this? http://paizo.com/image/content/PathfinderRPG/PZO1121-ElfDruid.jpg
mediczero, try going to youporn. It will better suit your needs.
why u guys provoking him again and again?
you can see one miserable guy crying for some sick type of attention and backing up his view with "you are wrong, iam right" arguments only
just stop please; I know people will still try to discuss with Jeramiah, but for you guys as often forum visitors (from what I see so far) it's low you should already notice that he is only goal is to mess around. you fall to his goals too easily
I finds his hopeless arguments entertaining...
i wonder if newcomer to forum finds it entertaining
especially when trying to find some discussion and instead they encounter endless fight against Jeremiah and his spawns
and... woah! enlightment!
put Jeremiah into game as a boss! endlessly selfressurecting with bigger army each time similar to vampire Nikolai in 5 and the knight Whateverhisnamewasifhehadone in 6
tough fight for sure but there would be counterplay for it as he wouldn't have any female units, only 5/7units probably!
I want inferno, I want a sanctuary, I want a phoenix, I want good game !
Ну как-то так ... больше нечего сказать )
Me too Mirash, me too :)
Well my hopes are high for this game. All they has to do know is givin us a neutral phoenix, the sanctuary and revivng the old fortress (now called citadel)
I think we will be getting phoenixes as neutral units but it seems we have to wait DLCs for other factions :/
Sadly, even as neutral Phoenix won't be fiery. ;/
The phoenix has to be fiery it is normal . Very much to be pleasant a phoenix !
А гномов не хочешь? Я и за ними буду скучать...
During the Sylvan line-up vote, Marzhin said on HC: ,,And sorry but the upgraded Phoenix will definitely be a "Moonix". Probably more silvery than blue compared to the H6 one, but the lore is pretty specific on that topic. " So we will never see fiery Phoenix in Ashan (again). :(
Forgive and I want gnomes. but inferno I love more .
Прости и конечно гномов , просто демонов больше люблю )
наконец вижу русск язык - а то я с англ не дружу -в школе учила франсе ) запуталась с переводчиками этими -такую чушь переводят -просто умора ))
It is a pity that took away fire from the Phoenix (
Жаль что феникс не огненный стал (
Гномы на карте была та еще имба помню в гер 5. Еще буду скучать по кирину - отличный боец и красавчек
From the Phoenix description :
The Phoenix is one of the most powerful spirits of Light. It embodies the primal life-force, indomitable, and ever-reborn. A young Phoenix is recognizable to its silvery feathers that scholars interpret as a sign that the Phoenix channels some of its Primordial powers from Asha herself. However, as it grows older and more powerful, the sacred bird loses its silver feathers and grows a golden and blazing plumage.
Yeah, I know that, but golden Phoenix is still not the same. :/
GOLDEN AND BLAZING plumage lol :))
GOLDEN AND BLAZING plumage - rare crow KAR KAR )))))))))))))
Mirash-, J'ai aussi étudié le français à l'école))
Что, фениксы не будут огнистыми,
Горящими и золотистыми?
Другими их делать пора?
Цвета лунного серебра?
Что сделать хотите вы с ними?
А и ладно, пусть будут любыми,
Оранжевыми или белыми,
Пурпурными или серыми,
Ужасными или прекрасными,
Уязвимыми или опасными,
Какими бы не оказались,
Главное, чтоб возрождались!
The phoenix without fire is a chicken ))
@Galaad - I imagined him like this: http://h3maparchives.celestialheavens.com/wog/picsall/sacred_phoenix.jpg ;P
Феникс -возрождение в огне Phoenix - revival on fire !!!
@Mirash - Well, the best Phoenix in the series is for me the H2 Phoenix and hit didn't have much fire on it, it was just ,,pulsing".
The H4 phoenix had a lot fire on him, but he looked like a burning chicken.
Phoenix grill )))
Black_Weaver стихи красивые ... но огонька б фениксам не помешало )
Tombe la neige - le phénix se refroidit )
Mirash-, с этим не поспоришь, но мы уже ничего не изменим, голосование за цвет феникса не сделают...
Black_Weaver даж если и сделали б -я все голосования в пролете ))
только против гномов выиграла -но там изначально было нечестно все построено - гномы уступают эльфам в популярности сильно . И мне даж жаль их (
Are apprentices/disciples going to have a spellbook like mages from H5?
Btw. i am trying to say that if they will be able to cast spells or just have ranged attack? I'm not talking about a spellbook as an accessory :)
That would be a shame if they didn't, what would be the point of having wizards in army if they couldn't cast spells? :)
I'm hoping Djinns will get some spell casting as well
Exactkl! But i fear that we are not going to see these units casting spells :/ Maybe they can put their spells as special abilities that we can use in battles but i would like to see these units as spellcasters.
It is the Wizard faction. So I expect both Djinns and Disciples to be casters.
Also not only Academy units but chaplains in Haven or druids in Sylvan should be all spellcasters.
Hear, hear !
+++ I also wish spellbook for units will return, but from what the devs said so far, it seems they will have just abilities and not spells. My guess is the Mage will have standart piercing attack and alternatevi attack - activated ability - fireball and Djinn will cast random spells while attacking. But let´s hope I´m wrong ! Opening the spellbook and choosing which spell to play at the right time really adds more depth to the game !
I would also like to see a spellbook, but as I understood they wanted to go with h6 line of using activated abilities on the side.
yes. It's located in the trunk of their flying carpet.
I've wondered about this too. I'm sure it wouldn't be very difficult for them to pull off, depending on how the battle interface is. I imagined them being kind of like the units with multiple abilities in H6, different cooldowns for different spells, and probably not using mana.
