View Full Version : Question about Items (Surpressing, Morale)

I am about 6th level and loving the game.

As a Mage, I rely heavily on my Fireball and the Magic Pole Axe spell. I was going to go necromancer, but I am not able to recruit many necromantic troops and with archers, priests and archmages I am able to do a lot of damage while I wait for the rage to unleash "Evil shoals". All in all, I'd say combat is really a treat. (Although I could see how the AI could be tweaked to know if I have AOE spells to TRY to scatter some times).

In any case, here are my questions about items:

I have a magic pair of shoes that give me bonuses against robbers and poison. The morale of this item became very low and now I can "Surpress" it.

1. Why would I Want to supress the item? it does not upgrade and I think it's giving me the same bonus.

2. Items some times have a race, such as Human or Elves. Does this mean I should KILL that race mostly? I wasn't sure if that meant that a morale bonuses is given to that race if you have this item equipped or I Should seek them out and destroy them.

I enjoy the "RP" aspect of the game, so because I am doing good things, I do kind of want Druids and, Priests Archmages and that sort of thing. I notice the background color of the units is the same (All blue for one, Green for Druid and brown for Dwarf, so I tend to think of units as part of the same family if they share the color and therefore try to keep that type together).

3. Do you get a morale bonus for having synergy of units present (all from the same color family)? I would think so, but so far all I've managed is to accidentally get my bowman a positive morale (not sure how I did). Even though I had gaurds, priests and archmage with blue background also.

4. Should I not equip an item like those shoes that give a bonus to robbers if I don't have any robbers in my army, is that why it's morale got so low?

5. This really has nothing to do with items, but does the game give you a different physical form based on the races you use at a certain point/over time? In the main screen there is a section of high scores and there are dwarven, demon and elven heroes and the stats seem to correlate to a family of unit types they used.

1) When item morale reach 0, you don't receive any effect from the item.

2) Its the race that is favorable to the item. For detailed info on what increase/decrease the morale of a particular item, right click the item and read the info on it. It will describe what the item like and don't like in abstract form.

3) There is a icon on the top right on the unit info that will tell you what race the unit is from. If you fill up all with the same race, they get +1 morale except for humans and neutrals i think.

4) See 2)

5) Nope it will always be the same.
