I saw it on Russian and both of it were Healing ability, not "Combat Healing". I don't remember how was named the item which gives it. Seems like - Feathered Serpent Warbonnet. I hope Phirpo can clarify and report it on AoW forum.

Hi! Please give more details about the double Healing issue. Was it both "Healing" or was one "Combat Healing"? What options did you use in the Item Arcane Forge? And please report it here so that we can fix it:

yeah, i was surprised to see the double healing ability. but it wasnt really necessary anymore, i hardly took damage from independents. 

well i didnt count the number of tier4s i had, but yes i had more than 1 stack of tier3/4 around each hero. 

well, normaly player dont atttack before turn 20. and i saw enough of the map to be alarmed early in advance. after turn 22 even an early attack would have been very difficult to be succesful, because my army grew very powerful from there one. and i had the "great life stealing" too from turn 22. terms of luck, it could hardly have been more unfair. not a cool game.

Win against "ANYONE" - maybe or maybe not <smiletext0> I agree that I'm too slow player. But there are amazing strong players on the battlefield who usually start attacking an opponent’s domain very early. So anyone like Gabthegab didn't give you the time to rise <smiletext1>

You forgot to mention that you have more than 1 stack of T4 units  Most of your T3/T4 resurrected units were with MCI <smiletext6> And all of them haven't +25% to their upkeep as mind-controlled units  Also I again faced with the problem when your Theo hero could use Healing ability as his own upgrade and from the item that he had  So he could use it twice per battle)) We already discussed that problem while have been defining balance rules for the mod. But I forgot the reason why it still available - either the most of players voted against balancing that thing, or simply it is not possible to fix by modding. Anyway it's not so bad thing for the army with T2/T3 units, but for T4 starting from 17-th turn - it's one drop into barrel of guaranteed win 

And yes, I would like to see how it could be with v.1.26 of balance mod <smiletext1>

yes, Skuns is absolutely right, I would have won this game against ANYONE and it is a pity that we did not play with the new beta mod yet. I got so strong to a point where I was so confident of winning that the game lost all its thrill and fun. But i will give an account of how lucky I was in this game, in chronological order:

- I got a theo-hero
- I got the boots with shock protection
- in turn 17 I got true resurrect from a tower (While loosing an orc priest by bad luck) !!! 
- in turn 21 I cleared a heart structure nearby, while attempting to get my first tier3 through true resurrect, but the cadaver was unfortunately covered. But the nearby heart structure allowed me to gain a 100 CP soon. 
- in turn 22 I cleared another tower, gaining my first king shock serpent
- I got the shield that offers "defender" too, either in that second tower or shortly afterwards ! Ridiculous boni for my Wl-leader
- With the "filth" from a monkey and inflict spirit breaking from the "watcher", I got many conversions of tier3 and even fairies. I d say, I was lucky here too.
- I managed to level up two shock serpents too which i befriended with my AD-hero.
- Furthermore, my theo-hero had "bringer of goodwil" as a trait form the start, and my AD-hero had an item that offered the same. I found "spire loyalty" very late in the spell book, but when I got it, the units in my theo- and AD-stacks only paid 25% upkeep !!
- Finally, shortly before I took Skuns cities, I got my first summon too, the spirit elemental.

...soon I had three very powerful armies, made of tier4s and 3s at gold or champion medal. My wl-group was totally floating/flying and I crushed through Skuns base in ~3 turns with it. 

When I got true resurrect I knew I only need to make sure, that a) i have 100cp asap, and b) a quick expansion of cities to gain the supporting gold income. When Skuns finally arrived through the UG, it was far too late. I had 11 cities + some vassals and a house army of mercenary-monster-hunters, berserkers and mounted archers, strengthened by meditate, martial arts, and thoroughbred mounts, some tier1s and some spirit elementals. "advanced logistics" ensured that i could gather my troops very quickly and that my ad-hero arrived back in time to destroy his main force (with only 1/4 of mine!)

Thanks for the game. I had no chances against such shameless use of unfixed True Ressurect <smiletext0> I had got that spell only once earlier but haven't chances to use it in such harsh snowball mode  
Here is the score

no problem. yeah if you are online in the evening, it is likely that we can take more than one turn <smiletext0>

Hi phirpo. Thanks that you play your turns fast <smiletext0> 

I'll be on vacation from 2 to 5 of November. So I can't play that period of time. Sorry.
