    So HOMM1 features 4 classes to choose from:

    – Knight
    – Barbarian
    – Sorceress
    – Warlock

    The top 2 are the “fighter” kind, the other are the “magic” kind, although any class can use & train any skill.

    Personally I like to play with the warlock best, because the dragons are just so great to have, haha.

    Is it me, or is the starting class actually random? Is there a relation with the color you choose? It’s not entirely clear how it works to me.

    I’m talking about a “standard game”, which is the mode I normally play. In campaign mode you can choose your class of course.

    I think it is, yes. I like the Knight. Stop insulting me. Anyway, surely the best class is whoever is strongest in the early game, e.g. (probably) not the warlock?

    infact the barbarian is probably the best starting class since he ignores terrain movement penalties

    Yeah, the Barbarian is pretty ace. Those trolls are great as well.

    It’s definitely true that the Warlock is hard in the early game. I’m getting quite a beating in the campaign because of this now 🙁

    In the second game, the special structure in the Warlock castle actually produces an extra 500 gold a day, just to balance out the cost of the troops. In Heroes 1, better find a gold mine, or a gold-producing artifact, or conquer another castle. 🙂

    It’s interesting you say that because I’m on level 4 of the campaign now, playing as Knights, and I’ve run into a difficulty wall where I had to admit defeat and start the level again – I spread myself too thinly with units that get torn through like paper, and I’ve been pining for access to the more powerful units of the Warlock class! Does the increased cost of the Warlock’s army make it impractical to build it up in the early game?

    Yeah, that’s exactly it, David. It’s really expensive to get all the warlock buildings + units when you don’t have tons of gold at first.
