Heroes of Might and Magic III – What exactly is “Morale” and “Luck”?

11 12

Morale and Luck are two things that play quite major roles in Combat.

 

 

Morale:

Morale is how high (or, in some cases, low) your army’s spirits are. If it is high, then they will perform well in battle. Sometimes creatures with High Morale will be granted two actions instead of one in battle. But, there is a downside, as there is to most things. If your army has Low Morale, they will be punished by freezeing in panic in battle sometimes. This means that they cannot do anything in that Round. Morale can be altered in some ways, which will now be explained.

 

Things That Alter Morale: Morale can be altered (affected) in the following ways.

 

1. Artifacts: Certain Artifacts can alter Morale (and Luck, for that matter) bonuses. Things like the Pendant of Negativity eliminate Morale and Luck bonuses for both you and your opponent. But other Artifacts are cursed and eliminate Morale and Luck for you only. The only way to get rid of these is to give them to another (allied) Hero.

 

2. Visiting Negative Towns: Visiting Towns that are the opposite of your Hero’s default Town will decrease Morale and Luck. For example, let’s say your Hero is Edric, a Knight. You go and conquer a Necropolis with a Morale of two, which is quite good. You foolishly send him
into the newly owned Necropolis, and his Morale is lowered by half if he has a Luck of 0 or less. But if your Luck is above 0, then it will only be lowered to 1.

 

3. Other: There are other ways to increase/decrease your Morale, but too many to list. Some include visiting Temples twice (negative/bad) or going to a Rally Flag (positive/good).

 

 

Luck:

Luck is how lucky you and your Creatures are (umm….duh). If you have a good amount of Luck, your troops will too. Lucky creatures will do double damage in battle sometimes, whereas unlucky creatures will sometimes do half damage. Doing half damage sucks, so
try not to get this. Here are some ways to alter Luck.

 

1. Artifacts: Certain Artifacts can alter Luck (and Morale, for that matter) bonuses. Things like the Pendant of Negativity eliminate Morale and Luck bonuses for both you and your opponent. But other Artifacts are cursed and eliminate Morale and Luck for you
only. The only way to get rid of these is to give them to another (allied) Hero.

 

2. Visiting Negative Towns: Visiting Towns that are the opposite of your Hero’s default Town will decrease Morale and Luck. For example, let’s say your Hero is Edric, a Knight. You go and conquer a Necropolis, with a Luck of two, which is quite good. You foolishly send him

3. Other: There are other ways to increase/decrease your Luck, but there are too many to list. Some include visiting Temples twice (negative/bad) or going to a Swan Pond (positive/good).
