The Grail is an item similar to an artifact in the sense that heroes can carry it and exchange it between them in the same way as artifacts. In fact, the Grail is sometimes unofficially referred as the ultimate artifact. The Grail is typically hidden somewhere in the ground of Adventure Map, and finding it requires digging it with a hero. Recovering the Grail artifact and taking it to any town enables player to build town specific Grail Building listed below:

The primary bonuses of Grail Building for all towns is extra 5000 gold generation per day and 50% additional creature growth per week. Additionally, every town has its own unique bonuses which are presented in their own pages.

Finding the Grail

In order to recover the Grail, a hero must dig it out of the ground. Only one Grail may be hidden in the Adventure Map. However, it is also possible for a mapmaker to set a hero or several heroes to carry the Grail in their backpack. When the Grail is buried into the ground, clues to its location can be found at obelisks. Every obelisk heroes visit reveals a part of the Puzzle Map, which shows the location of the Grail marked with X. Typically the X becomes visible when when the entire Puzzle Map is revealed, but occasionally it will be showed before the last oblesiks is visited. However, it is often possible to guess roughly the area where the Grail might lie, and systematically start digging it. In fact, the AI at hard difficulty levels start digging the Garil even if only third of the Puzzle Map is completed.

Grail Buildings

When the Grail is taken to a town and the visiting hero with the Grail "visits" the Town Hall, a town specific Grail Building will be build. Noteworthy fact is, that the town can build the Grail Building even if the player has already built in that town, but after the Grail Building is built the player can not built in the town that turn.

Castle's Colossus

Castle's Colossus looks like a huge statue of an soldier holding a sword and a shield. It increases owners all heroes' morale by +2. Although the documentation states that it increases all allied heroes morale, this appear appears to be wrong.

Rampart's Spirit Guardian

Tower's Skyship

Inferno's Deity of Fire

Necropolis' Soul Prison

Dungeon's Guardian of Earth

Stronghold's Warlords' Monument

Fortress' Carnivorous Plant

Conflux's Aurora Borealis

Discussion

  • If the hero carrying the Grail Retreats, Surrenders or is defeated in battle, the Grail is lost forever.
  • If the map has no obelisks, it is completly impossible to find the grail (even if every single block on the map is dug on). Also, using "nwcoracle", a cheat that reveals the puzzle map, will have no effect and the puzzle will not show anything.
