Heroes 3 Did you know nr. 40 – Poisonous Aging multiplicative effect
Ghost Dragons effect of Aging has a multiplicative effect with Wyvern Monarchs Poisonous ability. This means, that the creature stacks health could potentially be quartered. In the video 02:58, the resulting health of the Archangel is only 63 HP.
Ghost Dragons have Aging special ability, which has 20% probability to occur after they have attacked target creature stack and before the stack has a chance to retaliate. It causes maximum health of every creature in the target stack to be halved. The effect lasts for 3 combat rounds, and can only be removed with the Cure or Dispel spell. Additionally, non-living creatures are immune to aging.
Poisonous is a special ability of Wyvern Monarchs. It may occur after they have attacked or retaliated target creature stack. The chance of poisoning the target is 30%. Poison and its effects can only be removed with the Cure spell.
When poisoned, the target stack’s maximum health is decreased by 10% for every combat round for three rounds. The reduction is always calculated from the creature stack’s statistical maximum health. The effect is cumulative, which means that after three rounds the poisoned creature has lost 30% of its maximum health. After three rounds, the creature is no longer poisoned, but the maximum health remains decreased. The same troop can be poisoned again, but the maximum health will decrease only up to 50%. The reduction of maximum health does not kill the creatures, but it makes them more vulnerable.
