Titan's Lightning[edit]

I have seen a copy of the game where a computer player who got the Graal to their conflux could use Titan's Lightning Bolt without the equipment set (and did so liberally). Could it be that it was initially included, and this was corrected with a later patch? --Medinoc ( 07:04, 28 March 2014 (CET))

Hmm, interesting! I have not came across such behavior, which does not mean that it does not exist. However, I tested your theory with game version 4.0., and did not manage to duplicate your result. Perhaps the circumstances were not right, or the version has something to do with it. –Kapteeni Ruoska 08:30, 28 March 2014 (CET)
Well, is localization capable of affecting some game scripts/stats in Heroes III? (I know it's the case for some games like Sid Meier's Civilization II) because it was a French install. I have no Idea about the actual version number, though. --Medinoc 00:02, 2 April 2014 (CEST)
I guess anything is possible. There has been a claim, that in some version you could learn Fear (spell) from Pyramids; another test I did not manage to duplicate. And of course, the computer plays by different rules than humans, so trying to replicate the results is quita challenging. –Kapteeni Ruoska 06:14, 2 April 2014 (CEST)
I talked some friends into testing again on a French Heroes III install, with Armageddon's Blade and the unofficial HD patch. On this version, we could not reproduce the bug (at least not on human players). -- Medinoc 23:23, 26 August 2017 (CEST)
