Any way to speed up tactical battle animations?
How many enchants do cities and players get? How does this scale?
I am not sure of the exact amount, but it's something like 4 or 5. Right now you don't have to worry about scale. You can enchant cities, units and summon creatures as much as you like withouth any penalty to your essence.
-> They regen to a max of how many are left alive after the last battle, right?
-> if 2 out of your 8 die, then your squads max hp/att/def are permanently lowered, right?
They actually should heal to the original squad size, however there is currently a bug that causes any injured squad to permanently lose all units that died in battle after you load a savegame.
-> Is there any way to combine units into squads? i have stragglers left from veteran squads, they are pretty worthless as a single unit.
No. Units trained as singular units cannot be combined into squads because they didn't receive the squad training when they were build.
Medical kits, how do they work? Do they give regen to the unit or the stack? so in other words, can you make a medic or two for the army? or does it only apply to the unit who is made with it? i.e. your Knights will all need it, not just a designed Medic unit(?)
Only the unit that is made with it.
There's a building that says it inc[reases mana regen by +2, does this apply to units stationed in the city? to units in the kingdom influence? or globally?
Caravans: how do they work?
If i have 2 cities, A and B, if A sends to B, is it redundant to send B's to A?
Yes, it won't work.
is there a gain at all? should you try and chain them circularly (min needed:3), i.e. A to B to C to A ?
Do caravans only give bonus to gildar? so you should mainly use them for high guildar towns?
The main purpose of caravans is to give bonus to food production. Try to connect high food cities with low food cities. There are also benefits to gildar and production, but they are not well documented.
Assassin: does the bonus damage apply to spells or just meelee?
No idea, never tried.
Royalty: ive found 2 heroes that have this +Prestige bonus, but i cannot see the bonus on my city (in the City details window). I cannot see this bonus in the details when the hero is outside the city, or inside. How does this work?
It should increase the prestige of the cities. Maybe it is only on the 0.x level and therefore does not show up in the resource tab. Maybe it is bugged, I don't know, sorry.
Jesus the monsters got hard: after the newest patch, i made a new game with challenging settings cuz the AI was trash. now the wildlife is out of hand. does the wildlife respond to my researching that one section of Adventure tree? Or is it because i researched Squads? somehow it got hard as hell, and the forests are showing creatures 10x more powerful than the factions have. What scales these other than the initial difficulty setting?
Nothing to do with squads, only with your Adventure tree research and the Adventure research of the other factions. The more you and them are advancing in the Adventure tree, the more powerful and numerous creatures will appear.
