Talking Warlock:Master of the Arcane...and brave



Hi, all,

After my fail with CIV 5, i started new game
Warlock:Master of the Arcane.

I am great mage Empress and have 11 towns now.
My big problem is the opponent Great Fire Elemental with about 49 HP till my best unit is Flying Galleus with 20 HP only.
Maybe if i meet this opp with 6 Flying Galleus i will win. Have to try.

All good gamers are kindly invited to chat and discuss this game.

TY

There is "creature spam" here. Try to attack him with many cheap units. Also cheap summonings and spells can be the key to victory - they will die, of course, but they will significantly harm elemental. And harmed units are much less efficient.

OK.
I attacked this Elemental with many cheap units (3 skeleton archers, 2 warriors and four Flying galleous) and at last i won. But this is Victoria pirrica.
But more and more Elementals appeared.

I have 24 towns but i feel that game will beat me if the situation is not changed rapidly.
Suddenly my Gold harvest reduced significantly. From 4345 to 1668!

..and very bad news again!!! Rats!
After increasing of my town number the PC becomes real turtle...

Today i will speak with my PC master for MB and RAM change...

What about your super-units and spells? Any advanced unit, like hero or champion, lich or golem, can handle this poor elementals with ease. Especially after enough buffs putted on them.

Ah, never heard of these champs!

I am with skeletons and my best unit (will try after a while) is some blue ghosts.

Today i visited my PC master and we managed all about modern PC - better video card - mine is Nvidia Geforce 210 - 750 MB, fast CPU, min. 4 GB RAM with option to 8 GB RAM.
I told him
- amigo, i will run The withcher 2 on ready PC.
If the game is OK i will accept the PC; if not - return..

Well, i will stop my gaming for a while.
Because today i started upgrade of my PC.
I am writing from my 2-nd PC right now.

Video card
old
Nvidia Geforce 210 750 MB
new
Nvidia GT 240 1 GB DDR3

RAM
old
1.5 GB
new
2 x 1 GB =2 GB DDR 2 800Transcend - My target is 2 x 4 GB = 8 GB

CPU
old
AMD Sempron 2500+ 1.41 GHz
new
AMD Athlon X2 245 box

MB
old
Asrock KBNF4G Sata2
new
Asus M4A78-AM

HDD
150 GB - No change

My old poor machine has 2.7 coeff. only.

Yes, this is a small step ahead, but i will not stop till The witcher 2 runs without problem.
Very soon i will buy new large RAM volume. To reach 4 GB.
The de fragmentation and RAM are the best ways to speed up my PC.

I think, you do something wrong with processor. My Core2Duo E7200 looks better by perfomance, and I bought it cheap three years ago. I think, you can hit perfomance wall quite fast. Try to reconsider, please? Quick search shows that even AMD Phenom II X4 that compared in price with this X2, well, seems 3 times better in tests.

Also, your new video seems... somewhat outdated for me. Can you get any GTX card? Anyone seems much better than GT. And if you cannot - at least get 4xx instead 2xx - it must be very cheap now, but they are still better than that.

Vo,vo.

Spacibo!

Hy, i am very new in these configurations, CPU and etc.
Any good advice is welcome.

Y'know i started gaming relatively soon and playing old RPG was satisfied with my PC.
But with new games the situation changes and i have to know more about this stuff.
Sadly, i am very lazy mughik (peasant) and ....

Do You feel that with increasing your towns number and units the PC speed decreased? I feel this bad effect.

..and a small light of the tunnel end:
My race owns Minotaurs (HP 45) against 40HP of Elementals..Maybe this will be my secret weapon for victory?
I think You know Master of Magic? Da?
Pls. can You tell me is it possible that my final enemy is in other world?
And is it possible as in MoM the opp to close the portals to other world with spell?

Not at all. But my processor, as I said, even better than your "new" one. You definitely need more!

1. Do you aware of captured cities? Every one "different" from you will give you full spectrum of buildings/units of this race.

2. Do you aware of "all buildings" button? It's under your choices in city view. Shows you all possible buildings in that town. Good for planning.

Of course.

No, and no. First one wasn't impossible at all before patch 1.3 (now opponents can utilize other worlds - but it not seeded here. It would be murder). Second... well, it's would be non-usable, if it was here. "Secondary" worlds are all tiny, so closing it effectively means choking to death all units trapped there.

Pls, what is going up, dear Smiling Spectre?

Being great mage Espress i eliminated 3 great mages. The remaining mage is neutral.
No moving beings except few water creatures.
No problem to kill all of them.
But no victory still?
I entered the other world and was surprised to see 6-7 Fire elementals around.
What is my fail?
Spocibo..
