RC8b will yet add another revolutionary modification to TOE. For the first time real magic heroes will be available for stronghold! In this new version the skillsystem can finally be considered complete since Stronghold will now really have 3 classes instead of 3 small variations of one class. The hero roster is a bit different from other factions, Stronghold will have 12 might heroes and 8 magic heroes, so might remains the dominant path.
The 2 new classes will be Shamans and Witches. Shamans will be focused on 'good' magic and witches on 'bad' magic. There will be 4 Shamans & 4 Witches and they are all female. Vice versa all might heroes will be male (Chieftains). To be honest this wasn't done to mimic H3 fortress, but because technical limitations do not allow the new magic classes to use melee animations and only the female model was suitable for a ranged attack.
Shamans & Witches play entirely without bloodrage & warcries so the gameplay is very different and creatures under their command have no urgency to move. They learn new spells from one selected school by leveling up. Spells from other schools can only be obtained from the adventure map or skills or enemy towns. They gain extra defense bonuses from the Hall of Trial upgrades to make up for not having bloodrage. The pile of skulls will boost their knowledge instead of rage.
Stronghold might is also improved, Chieftains will actually offer more variation in gameplay then before because now you can not only choose between shouting or learning as starting skill but also choose to start with only bloodrage. Only a small selection of heroes start with those skills and this will be marked in the custom game menu.
