III. BEST UNITS BY LEVEL AND TYPE
IV. PROPS & SLOPS



I. POWER RATING AND GOLD EFFICIENCY ALGORITHMS: In order to best determine just exactly how good each unit and town is, I devised some arbitrary formulae and ability values in order to cold-heartedly calculate the exact pecking order. Many numbers were pulled randomly out of the Arbitr-O-Matic (TM) and in retrospect look wildly inaccurate; but once you devise your algorithm and are halfway through it, human laziness takes a certain precedence over righteous indignation or the search for the absolute truth. Fox Mulder I ain't. Basically, I used two numbers to determine the value of each unit. The first criterion, the Power Rating, is fairly self-explanatory. Basically, by adding up all the little things that make up each extraordinary beast in a totally arbitrary manner, that tells you how powerful that unit is. Obviously, a higher Power Rating indicates a more powerful creature. The second criterion, Gold Efficiency, is also very obvious; it's basically the cost efficiency of the creature in question. While some units are incredibly powerful, they are simply just not cost efficient. This may be the most important consideration for the resource-deprived hero. In terms of rating the various towns, I just added up the Power Ratings of all the units available in the town (in both regular and upgraded flavors) to get the town's Power Rating and took an average of the critters' Cost Efficiencies to get the same value for the town itself. A few factors are outside the scope of these particular algorithms, such as the costless creation of Skeletons through the handy-dandy Necromancy skill; but you can evaluate the worth of such determinants yourself when choosing between two roughly equivalent town types like the Fortress and the Necropolis. The rankings (based on the relative values of the other towns) seem to bear out popular opinion, such as the Castle Town being the most powerful and the Inferno Town being one of the worst, if not the absolute worst. Also, judging by the values of creatures of the same order and how they fit into the Thieves' Guild hierarchy of "Best Creature," I think I hit fairly close to the mark in most cases. Anyways, enough boring preamble, here's some equally boring mathematical stuff: Power Rating = (Avg. Dam. + Shots/3 + Attack + Defense + Health + Basic + Speed + Special) Gold Efficiency = Power Rating/(Gold(*)/2) (*): Non-gold resources count as 50 gold each Basic Ability Worth: Movement (Ground/Flying/Teleport): 0/5/7 Ranged Attack: 3 Special Ability Worth: No Retaliation: 5 Extra Attack/Double Damage/Additional Counterstrikes: 5 Ranged Hand-to-Hand Penalty: -5 Jousting: 5 Resurrection (Demonic/Rebirth/Undead/Angelic): 10/10/15/50 Hatred: 0 Petrify/Paralyze/Blind: 7 Death Stare/Aging: 9 Breath Weapon/Thunderstrike: 5 Poison/Disease/Curse/Ensnare/Dispel: 3 Drain Magic: 3 Area Attack (Fireblast/Death Cloud/Melee): 3/7/5 Fire Shield: 5 Morale/Luck Bonus/Intimidation (Single/All): 3/5 Regeneration: 3 Magic Resistance (+20/+40/Aura): 3/5/7 Spell Resistance (.5/.25): 3/6 Spell Immunity (Single/Few/Multiple): 3/5/7 Spell Vulnerability (Single/Few): -3/-5 Magic Conduit/Damper: 5 Spell Casting (Single/Multiple/Affect All): 3/5/9 Ballistics Skill (Basic/Advanced): 5/7 Big Gnashy Teeth (-40/-80): 5/10 Ranged Penetration: 3 II. TOWN UNITS I'll cut through all the suspense and just list the best and worst towns in terms of Power Rating and Cost Efficiency. The best towns are the Castle and Conflux and the worst are Inferno/Conflux and Dungeon, respectively in terms of Power Rating and Cost Efficiency. You can figure out all the grimy specific details by perusing the rest of this document. {{{---((--$ CASTLE UNITS $--))---}}} Total Power: 1620 Power Ranking: 1st Average Efficiency: .456 Efficiency

BEST UNITS BY LEVEL AND TYPE What do some of these results mean? Quite frankly, not a whole lot. Really, who gives a crap that the Lizardman is the best unupgraded Ranged unit in terms of Cost Efficiency? Unless such scraps of knowledge fulfill some obscure urge of yours to acquire pointless tidbits and factoids, I'd heartily recommend skipping over the rest and just reading whatever pertains to your real interests, such as best upgraded units per level. LEVEL 1 (Regular): LEVEL 1 (Upgraded): Power Rating: Pikeman Power Rating: Centaur Captain Cost Efficiency: Pixie Cost Efficiency: Sprite LEVEL 2 (Regular): LEVEL 2 (Upgraded): Power Rating: Air Elemental Best by Power Rating: Storm Elemental Cost Efficiency: Dwarf Best by Cost Efficiency: Battle Dwarf LEVEL 3 (Regular): LEVEL 3 (Upgraded): Power Rating: Griffin Power Rating: Ice Elemental Cost Efficiency: Stone Golem Cost Efficiency: Iron Golem LEVEL 4 (Regular): LEVEL 4 (Upgraded): Power Rating: Basilisk Power Rating: Vampire Lord Cost Efficiency: Pegasi Cost Efficiency: Silver Pegasi LEVEL 5 (Regular): LEVEL 5 (Upgraded): Power Rating: Gorgon Power Rating: Mighty Gorgon Cost Efficiency: Dendroid Guard Cost Efficiency: Dendroid Soldier LEVEL 6 (Regular): LEVEL 6 (Upgraded): Power Rating: Black Knight Power Rating: Dread Knight Cost Efficiency: Psychic Elemental Cost Efficiency: Magic Elemental LEVEL 7 (Regular): LEVEL 7 (Upgraded): Power Rating: Angel Power Rating: Archangel Cost Efficiency: Firebird Cost Efficiency: Phoenix GROUNDED (Regular): GROUNDED (Upgraded): Power Rating: Hydra Power Rating: Ancient Behemoth Cost Efficiency: Gremlin Cost Efficiency: Hobgoblin FLYING (Regular): FLYING (Upgraded): Power Rating: Angel Power Rating: Archangel Cost Efficiency: Pixie Cost Efficiency: Sprite RANGED (Regular): RANGED (Upgraded): Power Rating: Cyclops Power Rating: Titan Cost Efficiency: Lizardman Cost Efficiency: Master Gremlin IV.
