Chup1n, you can always return from Feedom Islands back to Darion - Where is Greewort, Arlania, Marschan Swamps with many quests and dungeons which will help you to get to higher level and get better items very easily. I strongly advise that.

BTW- What Undead units you can hire is totally RANDOM - once vamps, then zombies, then ghosts... it depends all on luck
But you can't hire necromancers nor Dark Knights in Marshan swamps, maybe in Taron Mines (very rarely) in Elven Lands (in underground - always) in Demonia (very often and very bride variety of undead) and in the last location... no matter what it is called - you will know when you are there (don't want to spoil the game totally for ya)

1. The first possible place to find Black Knights is the seaside tavern where you pick up the quest to retrieve a dragon fang. Once you finish his quest, there is one random level 4 creatures available for hire. The number of hirelings is rather limited though and since it is random, there is no guarantee you will definitely find Black Knights.

2. On Freedom Island, there is a vendor called Moon Ghost. It sells random undead units. Never find anything beyond level 3 though, not even Vampire.

3. In Arden Peaks, the Dwarven Necromancer sells undead units. The best I find is Ancient Vampires.

4. In Demonis, the black tower on the upper floating platform sells undead units. The only fixed unit is Necromancer. 10 out of 10 times they are available for sale. The other slots are random.

5. All Haunted ships sell undead units. Nothing impressive for those in Darion/Freedom Islands.

6. Killed the Furious Paladin by destroying all 12 Statues in Marshan Swamp. He will then sell undead units instead of human one. Nothing impressive though most of the time.

Hello everybody.

I'm reading quite a while and just registered to make my first post in this forum.

So, I like to play story-like. At the moment I play as a mage, relying heavily on my spells and totally different troops. Next, I think I will try a Paladin with elven-only army. Then, I really like to play as a warrior with only undeads. With Rina (?) and Dark Commander I think it can be quiet a good force.

So, I really appreciated the post by Gatts. I learned a lot of interesting new tactics. All I need now I more time to play King's Bounty, because my better half often keeps me from loosing myself in it.

I believe I have posted all I know about Undead tactics options... but here is small recap:

1.) Take Rina - let her in zombie form
2.) watch carefully for all artefacts that boosts undead - keep them, use them
3.) Try to sneak into Demonis ASAP - there are mostly the best undead units for purchase
4.) when already in demonis and you can't decide whom to take:
a) ancient vampires (bats) -> if you are lucky to get these, consider them as total MUST... you can even stack them in your backup slots (to not have to return to get them if you don't get sacrifice)
b) Dragons - great for hit'n'run tactics + can effectively collect battle chests (not fearing to be easily killed)
c) Any other vampires (if you can't get vampires (bats) take normal ones - you cans till transform them in battle)
d and e are optional -> you can go for skel archers if you don't mind losing some (if you don't go for 0-loss policy), necromancers (deal less damage, and can damage your own units, unless you don't mod them to "friendly fire 0" or my good old undead commander -> boosts morale
Keep in mind that one of your units may be green dragon later on, so prepare one of your units to be kicked out, early heads-up email in their mailbox will do
5.) Do not count too much on vampire steal life ability -> many units do not have "blood", have "no retaliation" ability, and your vamps can hit only once per round (do not have "furious" ability of demon or griffin...) also their damage is not as huge as the damage they can take They are nice tanks, but still deserve some planning of you, dear general
6.) early on use ghosts, but watch out, especially on higher game diff. for over-running the max leadership cap, nasty nasty
7.) do not hesitate to take zombies in your army - they can take a lot of hits and deliver huge amount of damage as well, and have axes -> some artefacts work for them just better
9.) There is dwarven artefact that says "+30% damage from cold weapons" and it works for vampires as well could be handy information
10.) If you feel sad that Rina has no weapon slots - download my MOD... you will find it in MOD section... somewhere
11.) watch out when fighting enemy undeads, prepare strategy more carefully or replace your units for the undead fights (dragons can do + ents, plants... dragons deliver huge fire damage - bad for deadies, ents and plants do not have blood - enemy ghosts/vamps won't ressurect/replenish )

I'm doing an undead-only challenge right now. It was tough at the start, but now I have ancient vamps, bone dragons, necromancers, cursed ghosts, and skele archers. Combined with dark commander this setup really tears up most enemies.

I pretty much use sacrifice to build up/replenish my skeleton archer stacks.

This means either

1. Carrying a huge stack of disposable units in your reserve.
2. Lucking out and finding hypnotize.
3. Using troops with hypnotize effects (eg. demonesses and dryads).
4. Have a single high hp unit (giant, dragon) and use level 1 sacrifice to gain troops without losses.

I tend to go with 3 and 4 but YMMV.

I can't say enough good things about skeleton archers + isharra's whip + poison dagger (if you can find it). Throw dragon arrows on them and watch the slaughter. They are the primary reason I rush to tolerance (the other undead troops are not that great on harder difficulties.)
