Post tutorial RSS The Army of the Dead

The Army of the Dead is the Undead Legion of Lord Bane, the Omen of Death. They do not want to destroy the world, just to kill every living creature, as with every living creature that dies their numbers increase.

The Army of the Dead is a very unusual faction. They can not train units from buildings, but instead they have to equip skeletons with equipment.
The thing you should know when playing is that your Undead units get certain benefits. Being dead, your units have immunity to poison, disease, fear and terror. The undead do not regenerate health during day, but they regenerate double the health during nighttime. However, since they are undead, healing magic does not affect them at all.
Equipping your units might use up all your metal and crystal, but always fill your stone and gold mines first to be able to advance quickly and expand your base.
Your early anti air unit is the Wraith, which can gain some nifty vampirism bonuses as well.
Disturbed by Neutrals
Your most important melee units are the Slayer Knights. These units can be increased to deal a lot of damage. First you have Dark Mithril, which gives them a Damage and Armor bonus, then there are the upgrades from the Cage, which can double their damage and triple it against forces of good.
Doom Knights also benefit from these upgrades so don't avoid training them.
Doomknight Attack
The Lich is another valuable unit for your faction. They gain powerful fire attacks and can raise skeletons from corpses. This might not seem important, but raised skeletons can be also equipped with powerful armor.
Liche Finish
When playing this faction you have a lot of counter strategies as well. Skeletons are resistant to missile and take little damage from most towers.
Against heroes with a lot of Intelligence you may want to create Shadows. These ghosts can steal the experience from enemy units and use it themselves.
