Native terrain is a creature's "home" terrain type. It gives creatures fighting in their native terrain +1 attack, +1 defense and +1 speed and ability to see Quicksands and Land Mines. Additionally, a hero moving on a terrain that causes movement penalty with only creatures native to that terrain will not suffer movement penalty. Heroes with any creatures native to another terrain will suffer movement penalty. Nomads and their native Sand terrain work differently in terms of movement penalty to other terrains - just one unit in an army is enough to completely remove the penalty.

* Though neutrals do not get terrain bonuses on any land, neutral zones (with neutral dwellings and neutral units in Pandora's Boxes) are always generated on dirt.

Sieges are always fought on town's native terrain (e.g. inferno town sieges are fought on lava). Even magical terrain will be not visible at the battlefield, although its effect will be applied.
