Strategy[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.
  • With two slow creature types, dwarves and dendroids, rampart armies may be best suited to defensive tactics. Most of these creatures, however, have enemy hampering abilities that can be used to turn the tide against many opponents—especially those dependent on magical attacks.
  • Silver Pegasi are among the fastest creatures in the game, which often offers chance to act first in combat. However, they are quite fragile and should be used with caution.
  • Gold Dragons' spell immunity is a double edged sword, their skills cannot be enhanced but nor can they be diminished. Useful in tactical manoeuvre called Dragogeddon.
  • Dwarves and Dendroids are tough and useful in shielding Elves (or other shooters).
  • The Grand Elf is a nice shooter, but often blinded (or damaged through spells) by the AI. Thus, protecting this ranged attacker with Double attack by anti magic spells like Anti-Magic (4th or 5th level spells only, up to spell immunity) or Magic Mirror (20% to 40% chance of reflecting spells back to the enemy and then target a random stack) can be useful.
  • It is beneficial to build and upgrade Homestead prior to all the other dwellings.
  • At sieges when the wall is breached, it is possible to use Dendroids to bind enemies in the moats.

Pros[edit]

  • Centaurs and Centaur Captains are among the best 1st level creatures.
  • Several Treasuries can become extremely powerful in longer games as every treasury's 10% bonus is cumulative.
  • Grand Elves are fast ranged units that can be acquired early in the game and, what is even more important, shoot twice.
  • Several units with high speed rating can form a very potent force in the late game.
  • Rampart produces the most hit points per week of all towns.
  • Many anti-magic abilities of creatures. This includes Dwarves' resistance, ability of Pegasi to increase cost of a spell casted by the enemy hero, Unicorns' aura of resistance, and finally Green and Gold Dragons' immunity to the majority of spells (Gold Dragons can be part of Dragogeddon).

Cons[edit]
