    We won't get them. They are elite versions of elites and would be way too OP.

    Won't happen. You can still train them in every chapter untill 5 though.

    In every chapter we get overseers we also get to train elites

    Is it just me or is there really no choice and everyone autoallies with golden guard?

    I know, right?

    Shar added some parts to the cinematic that he gave us as spoiler! We ended up allying with the Golden Guard without a choice!

    Played it. And oh boy impale me on a pike and sacrifice me for a blood shield.

    I'm sort of disappointed how we didn't get a choice to pick our ally. I think the dwarves really screwed up. The didn't learn the sacred 3 rules of Arkain war
    1. Never EVER put yourself in a 5 vs 2 situation. Even 6 vs 2 since Gardon has the black dragons. They did just that
    2. Always be on the same side with the guy who has war aura as his ult
    3. Never ally with the people that caused the civil war in the first place.
    They never learn.
    Also you shouldn't never underestimate your enemy and appearances can be deceiving, but Kobold and Rats. They were strong, but them being ancient enemies of the dwarves was kind of underwhelming. I guess we can expect a spin-off campaign in the future about their rivalry?
    Also final thing i didn't like was that Progaderas didn't drop an item. We will do without one, but it would have been nice.
    Anyway chapter was good. I will look forward to seizing that cannon and killing those midgets in chapter 11. Also killing van Durce too.

    Guess that the dwarves were really...short-sighted.:)

    Maybe what these creatures lack in technology and strenghth, they compensate in numbers and birth rates?

    A pity... One of the few competent rulers chose the wrong allies and will be killed.

    I also noticed that we have Chosen of Hammerfall as our preplaced riflemen, is that intentional?

    We are controlling the Dwarven King, so it makes sense the best of the best are with him on this fight...

    Alright. Time for a report. My main issue with this mission was about skillsets. Like Braelon has that barrier or whatever spell, right? And Zarin's fellow mage-hero has that spell too. And runepriests possess barkskin, which is basically just a singletarget barrier. And both runepriests and that hero got healing rune. I mean there is a logic behind high runepriest possessing same spells as minor ones, but gameplay wise all of that stuff doest not stack, which kinda renders runepriests... I dont want to say useless,coz they are not, but maybe less effecient. The barrier thing tho is frustrating. That is the only thing that caught my attention. Also was pretty obvious dwarves would choose golden guard over IronFist. No bugs so far. Looking forward to replay other chapters.

    I smell a plot twist. Gardon is meant to lose the final battle. That would be a Westerosian twist.

    Form e neutral perspective, dwarfs did right thing. Gardon literally enslaved elf race. I would have done the same if I were dwarvan king. Van druce is an asshole but he looks like competent asshole. We just see the entire plot from gardon's perspective and we are playing with Gardon's for long enough. Otherwise I don't think van druce himself is any different from Gardon. It's hard to understand who is the real demon here. LOA is Wc3's game of thrones.

    I think our portrait of van Durce is highly based on Gardon's perspective of events. Come to think of it, it was the emperor who ordered him to commit treason. If Gardon is willing to sacrifice everything for victory, would he sacrifice his pride and fight alongside van Durce, considering he's not acting on emperor's behalf anymore? I doubt that very much. But both of them pursue the same goal now, which is destroy demons obviously. At this point Zarin's words make sense. Humans cannot unite even at the brink of extinction.
