How to play this mod?

Just play a normal Heroes 3 game but it is recommended to decide early on which class your hero should reach. If you play the standard 8 secondary skill game, you need 35 points to reach Master Class and 57 points for Grandmaster, but you can always check.

Each Master skill gives 2 class points! Master and Grandmaster skills can only be learned if you are M/GM in that class. To do this check your class points often and calculate how many points you get from secondary skills to reach a certain class. Check your progression/class points after every hero level up. Please check the Readme about AI difficulty before game start. It is not recommended to play on highest difficulty.

    Pls fix it that Caster classes get Dimensions Door, Fly and Waterwalk. Banned it many times in WoG(Era3) but every Game the enemys have it. And if i active that Option from Class-Mod that AI can’t use Dimensions Door only fly for less lags it doesn’t work. They still use Dimensions Door.

  2. Perry

    I tested the option to ban DD several times with scrolls, books and Mage Guild, it worked every time. Also, the mod does not give free spells to caster class and it does not interfere with banned spells in any way.

    If you want post me your mod list and your save game here with Dropmefiles and I will take a look.
