Life magic got some love! Heal spells heal more, regeneration is now easily worth its mana cost. That's awesome, thank you - dedicated healers sound like a strong strategy now. 

Nerfing healing items makes a lot of sense with this.

ah great, the long awaited patch that finally makes the heroes "legendary" the tweaks to random treasure chest loot, item rarity and removed level prereqs for armor will probably resolve most of the issues with the slightly underpowered champion paths (melee specs in general). plus, i like the buffs to healing magic. sounds great. healer is my favorite mage spec and this will make them even better

Hmm, had not anticipated this path, but my initial response is very positive.  I had not run a healer in..well, forever, even in FE, due to their becoming weak sauce as the game progressed.  Yes, I just used items to heal.  Nice change, as I would much rather build a hero to heal rather than buy items.

Also, the removal of armor minimum levels, while shocking at first, makes sense. 

In fact, it seems that the way to raise heroes effectiveness is being done by itemization; easier access, fewer restrictions and the nerfing of its competitors, consumables.

Now healers just need a turn undead or damage undead spell at Life 3, and move shrink to death magic.

With the reduction in healing power for items, will any of the purchase costs be reduced as well? Purchase price for items has always seemed a bit on the high side and lowering these will make it even more that way.

Yeah, I'd love to see heal spells damage the undead, too.

Liking the balance changes. Will we see some balance changes to the horse/warg problem, too?

 

ALSO, NEW WAR BOAR MOUNTS!?

 and move shrink to death magic.

I don't think death needs any more help.

Agree. Or give us new ways to lower prices. Could there be a civics tech, like "military subsidy kickbacks" that encourages the merchants to sell items to hero for cheap, in exchange for political favor? Functionally, it'd just be an item cost discount. That'd help heroes overall. 

OR let champions "upgrade" their gear just like regular troops, make it cost the resources (and some gold) instead of forcing heroes to buy everything with only gold, at high prices.

"Haggling" as a general level up trait would be spectacular.

Mercenary cost?  Cost for maintanance for units like the Knights of Asok and border towns?  Please fix, easily just make them free.

What if Life Magic had a spell that gave all allied units the "Enmity" trait for one battle? A way for life magic to get offensive against its opposite - death magic, represented by the fallen. 

Not opposed to life magic having a damage undead spell, but life magic by nature is about support and buffing, not direct damage.

I've really found purchase price of everything to be very high. About the only thing that's been balanced is the cost of horses and wargs now.

I'm not at my game at the moment, but I thought shop cost was 4x or 5x value (correct me if I'm wrong). Has there been any consideration in decreasing that amount by 1 multiplier?

Mass Bless to reduce the damage from Despair or Horrific Wail and/or provide some protection from demons and undead?  

 

Also Mass Haste, Mass Slow, etc.

Those changes sure make heroes more hero. Better chances of epic stuff to wear and more damage in general.

I would love to see some of these spells hit the high magic tiers.

 

Also, I'm really finding that the turf in LH is quite bland. Very much missing the ground cover.

Regeneration should probably have an increased cost, and be a spell that wears off after one turn.  It will be OP late game/for rushing.

Or maybe it should be a higher level life spell.  

 

 UI suggestion: on cities that are cursed, put a black outside or cloud around the city, some sort of graphical cue.

Because there is no drawback for using them, and you get so many of them that it's a no-brainer decision not to use them.

 

I still don't know why they lack increased upkeep costs.  Is there some sort of hardcoded issue that keeps the team from trying this?

Quoting Alstein,

I thought upkeep cost were set by labor costs? That means the increased labor costs of mounted troops inherently have higher upkeep costs? I could be wrong but I thought that's how upkeep was calculated.

There are a series of bugs that I have temporary fixes for that should be looked at.

http://forums.elementalgame.com/443729/page/1/#3351353 (A series of goodie-huts are refering to not made tiles (I'm assuming they are still being designed))

On a seperate note when you upgrade to the treasure vault you get an increase in gildar at the city only when producing wealth. While it's predicessor produces the bonus to gildar no matter whether you are producing wealth or not. I would sugget the Tax Office be changed to a 25% bonus when producing wealth and not always.
