I'm probably the biggest academy fan on the planet and I want them to be as close to h5 as possible. But awesome work man these are interesting ideas, I only dislike changing the name mage to scholar and the phoenix unit is a bas *** summoning spell, no need to make it a unit. But super interesting my man (y). Also manticore isn't indo persian or arabian mythology to my knowledge, wasn't it a greek monster?

It appear also in Greek mythology but it was first in Persian that it appeared anyway academy rule and good point if it's a summon it doesn't need to be a unit but boy do i love phoenix. I remember has a kid my grandma used to told me old legend about phoenix ahhhh memories. I'll think of something else more fun for me

of course u can't post idea to don't wanna be stealing all the fun http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

in my opinion warewolves are more suited to sylvan units as creatures of the forest.
i really like your thoughts castiel_gabriel.
i might do something similar to yours with sylvan

It depends on how they would be displayed,if they are common warewolves and are brutal bloodthristy then by all means they dont fit Sylvan,but if they would be displayed as guardians of natures balance it may work.

Maybe not the academy we've been used to (holed up in a tower guarded by magical constructs), but the wizards of MMH6 seem much different. Many creatures are the result of their "experimental beast-men". They seem very into breeding beastial warriors, and as such I think werewolves would be a perfect fit... not to mention a nod to a fantasy staple strangely missing while so many others are present. (i.e. dragons, unicorns, vampires, griffins, & minotaurs)

I like the dragon-slayer-titan idea, cas. Good job! I think that his sword should be of flames combined with lighting...and sparkle a little...or at least look like some electricity is coming out of it...

You read my mind i see him shooting from left hand and having a lightning intangible sword in right hand just thinking about how this unit could look http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

I'm thinking more of keeping a sword in the left hand and throwing/shooting lightnings from the right one(one or two shots)...IMO...

I also think,that the titan needs a lightning sword,it just looks more awesome,than just kicking their enemies...

updated the academy faction it is way better now but still think it's op i think i should rearrange the lineup and gave it new direction still missing lot of work I'm starting to see why it is hard to create a good academy faction so much choice and it has to live to it's expectation maybe it's better like this that they release it last maybe like this it'll be better

I would like the Academy to be either Indian or Persian, because there is plenty of room for a faction to be made out of each. If it goes Persian: bringing out Rocs, Manticores, Genies, and Phoenixes is very doable. If it goes Indian: Vanara, Rakshasa, Asura, Garuda, and Yaksha are equally doable.

A faction only needs 7 units, which means it only needs 4 or 5 monsters and 2 or 3 units drawn from 1 or 2 fantasy units to be complete. The Academy in particular already has Gremlins and Human Magi, so their basic humanoid units are done. They only need a small pile of monstrous units - so it pointlessly greedy to grab signature beasts from multiple different cultures. You could get better coverage by having those be in a different faction.

Or to put it another way: I want the Manticore and the Roc back. Realistically, if any faction has only one or the other, there probably won't be another Persian influenced faction to use the remaining one. If on the other hand, both appear in the Persian influenced faction, we're good. And the same goes for Rakshasa and Garuda. There's probably going to be at most one Indian faction.
