Like two other heroes Kyrre and Gunnar who specialize in Logistics, Dessa can travel on the Adventure Map further than any normal hero. In fact, the Logistics specialty is so powerful, that it is typically banned in multiplayer games and tournaments. As a Battle Mage, Dessa is offered a good balance between pure strength and magical prowess, and if Logistics specialty is not banned, Dessa is definitely one of the most powerful heroes in Heroes of Might and Magic III.
