Enchanters are level 6 neutral creatures recruited from the Enchanter's Hollow.

See the Comparison of Level 6 Creatures (HotA).

"Specially trained by the dragon slayer Dracon, Enchanters are an elite fighting force. Recruited from the ranks of Monks, Zealots, Magi, and Arch Magi, these magical warriors are also capable of casting a beneficial mass spell once every three rounds, up to six castings." AB manual

Spells[edit]

Enchanters automatically cast following spells:

Spell Lvl School
Haste small.png Haste 1 Air
Bless small.png Bless 1 Water
Stone Skin small.png Stone Skin 1 Earth
Cure small.png Cure 1 Water
Bloodlust small.png Bloodlust 1 Fire
Slow small.png Slow 1 Earth
Weakness small.png Weakness 2 Water
Air Shield small.png Air Shield 3 Air

The spells are cast at the expert level every three rounds, lasting for three rounds.

Air Shield is only cast if there are enemy ranged creatures present which are able to shoot (i.e. not out of shots, not blinded, etc).

Cure will be cast if only there is a stack with a non-full health. Bug: the spell relevance is calculated based on stats of the first stack only (fixed in Horn of the AbyssHorn of the Abyss.

Despite the fact most of their spells are lvl 1, Enchanters can not cast on Cursed ground magical terrain.

Appearance[edit]

Enchanters were added in Armageddon's Blade so there are no Enchanters or Enchanter's Hollows in Restoration of Erathia.

Heroes with a specialty[edit]

Tactics and info[edit]

The information found in this section is subjective. Remember that each and every situation in H3 is different and may call for different strategies and tactics.

Toughness[edit]

The Enchanter's health and defense values are the lowest for a level 6 troop, 30 health and 12 defense, sharing the same defense as the Efreet, Cyclops and Diamond Golem. However, they are ranged attackers.

Offense[edit]

They have an under-average fixed damage value, but an over-average attack stat. They have the most shots in the game, 32, and also a no melee penalty.

Efficiency and cost[edit]

The Enchanters are relatively cheap units, for their total growth of 2, and also a good addition to an army, but not due to their stats.

Tactics[edit]

The tactics of using them are very simple: keep them alive, so they can cast mass spells on either your troops or the enemy's. Keep in mind, their low health makes them very vulnerable to any kind of damage, so they're very easy to get rid of, and should be defeated before they manage to use their casting ability if they are on the enemy's side.

Multiple stacks of Enchanters still only cast mass effect spells once every 3 turns.

Facing Enchanters[edit]

If you cast Hypnotize on enemy Enchanters, they will instead cast mass spells on you!

Skill bonuses[edit]

Since they are usually only a support unit, the Enchanters don't necessarily need any hero skill to enhance them.
