    What makes the AI of the enemy come online in the secret chapter? When my 2 allies are attacking on either side of me, there's no hero or units that spawn to defend themselves (themselves being the Dominion)

    There is a timer & a "emergency" activation if a.building gets destroyed.
    Used to have an area trigger instead but that created situations that made your allies get overrun.

    Does Xiingraal appear at all? I saw someone say it shows up in chapter 5 if you spared her, but the only thing I got was spider reinforcements in chapter 6

    I think that comes from the auto-close for 3 months old threads. Anyway, any estimates for a BETA for the last book?

    I also tried playing the book, but still having hellish time with even Normal difficulty :p

    Now...Imagine if he made workers take up production space...That would be true hell.
    The only good time you have in arkain is when you find a way to cheese the map...Thats totally the best feeling ever...Then you find out Shar patched it on the last update :| and you know you are in for a rougher time the next time you feel like re-playing the books again.

    I will be honest with you, the Second Undead Book has done nothing but annoy me so far.
    I had to delete several maps due to enormous unfixable bugs & design flaws and even the
    few that remain are not in the best state (as in, bugs, gameplay issues, etc) which is one of
    the reasons why I have put WC3 modding temporarily on hold.
    During its prodution, the game also suddenly ceased to function for a period of time (I have been
    able to fix that one pretty fast however).
    Right now, the Second Undead Book is REALLY not my favorite campaign to work on.
    Therefore, I am currently unable to give you any estimates, I am afraid.

    For the sake of Arkain dont do that...We dont need workers asking for better conditions while we are getting ganked by hordes of demons...In 3 diffrent sides.

    Nah, I won't do that.
    Towers may cost food at some point though if I feel extra evil...

    They want rights,they wanna feel like equals?

    Sure...SEND em to the front lines i am pretty sure that Doom Guard will give him the rights he needs.


    Nothing to worry about Arkain has endured for such a long time...This are minor setbacks...You just wait till Shar gets his motivation back up...Once upon a time he was pumping a new update each week...He's a machine...

    I wish I'd be done with it by now as well, trust me. X)
    I mean, you COULD currently send mass peasants/peons/acolytes against everything but...
    Well, you can see yourself how effective that is in the wonderful world of Arkain. Go ahead, I'll wait.

    Currently on standby.

    I know you'd love to see the death toll of keyboards and mouses to rise but due to outbreak i am lacking funds and space to set up my supply routs so i'd rather not try this new method of playing Arkain...Sure would love to make a YT series named "Can i beat LoA with only peasants/peons/acolytes.

    Jokes aside,just dont touch the Drake limit count ;-; ...You can cheese so many bases with them in the orc book!

    But then again...Going mass Drakes(to me at least) seems like the least painful way to deal with the massive AI hords Shar throws at us...Its a tad bit slow but then again.
