got a question about purchasing armies, do your buy them like you do dragons? when your armie is dead is it dead? or when you buy the extra army, does that 1 extra slot stay on your account so you can have 10 armies always or once that one army you purchased is dead, its dead, gone and in order to have that 10th army again, you have to purchase another one?

Armies is a one time purchase they`ll never disappear again.

What`s you opinion on the 150 influence price by the way? too low, too high?

study hard my friend as overhealing is still there :D

I personally think its too high... but i dont know what everyone else thinks, as having more armies is a nice feature, damn nice, but as the same price as a royal dragon, which is far more effective.. I think it should be lowered.. I dont know what would be a good number though, 50? 75?

Dropkick - so to confirm you can still overheal the units using healers or wells or both?

Well in a way you can turn that army into full 60 units army that`s more powerful than a Royal Dragon...but yeah looks like we might have went a bit too far with the price.

I can confirm that overhealing happens.

I attacked a stronghold (Sir Lenthth's neverending quests) healing a group of knights with my basic hero. Off course I healed them also with the knighta ability to self heal. The battle continued and the knights didnt loose health anymore. Instead the health increased even after the time for healing expired.

I would have added the log1.txt to the post but I didnt find the feature to attach a file. It is hidden very good.
Best regards

Yust had the same fight again. this time no healing from hero. The units were healed from a nearby well during battle. bur without healing influence from hero no overhealing happened. Hero is the guilty one!
