Seriously? Are vision-impaired species equipped with their engineers' googles?

Then, what about Stun Grenade/Bomb (to feel less anachronistic)?

I'm personnally against giving Night Vision to all the Scouts (and scouts) but I'm seriously outvoted. :( Hopefully players in the extended groups discussing balance will reject that but my hopes are low.
Maybe for the name change for Flash Bomb but we'd need more people supporting that. Maybe open a thread on the Steam forum? (though I doubt many will respond)

I think it will be good idea to move Exalted's resurgence to elite rank. I know it's a little fragile unit with only 55 HP but it's very universal because of flying and can do a lot of damage. But resurgence from the start makes mistakes painless you simply don't loose units at all.

Succubs can be nerfed a little. Their main functions are casting curse and seducing so a pair of them can gather a small army in several combats. But they're very close in melee damage to dedicated melee units they have elemental resistances. They don't have direct damage increasing features like chivalry's charge but flying gives them a lot of mobility and curse significally reduces enemy's Def and Res.

Shadow Stalkers. They're Mary Sue among all units. They move over any surface they move through the walls, they have 60% Phys resist which gives them more effective HP against Phys. attacks than any T4 unit has. And 2 of 5 elemental attack do no damage to them. They're are not affected by stun. And they have 21 damage in 2 channels combined more than any T3 unit. In fact they're not T3 but T3.5 unit and they're the best choice in most of situations (may be exceptions like a lot of flame tanks but usually when Stalkers can't do a lot of damage the enemy can't do a lot of damage to them too). Stalkers are vulnerable to Exsorcism and have no racial happines bonuses but these are not so big disadvantages comparing to brutal power they have.

Of course Shadow Stalkers are expensive 200 gold and 40 mana. BUT The price usually important not in how it big or small but how many turns it'l take to build the unit. After that it will consume a lot of gold for upkeep. And it's not so hard to reach 120 prod points and produce Stalkers in 2 turns especially if there's Magma Forge, Flowrock Quarry and etc. But it's hard to reach 170 prod points and produce racial T3 units in 1 turn. So in terms of production speed they're practically equal to other T3 units. And they're acessible from the same 100 gold 100 mana T2 class structure while buildable in cities T4 units require additional 200 gold 300 mana structure.

Since Rogue has no T4 units Stalkers must compete with other classes' T4 units but I think it's Res should be nerfed from 11 to 10 which means -2 Res in defence mode. And the price increased beyond 256 resources so the cities without additional prod structure in their domain couldn't spam them in 2 turns like any other T3 unit.

What looks very strange for me is very expensive racial T3 building which should make T3 units no so fast accessible as it was in AoW2 but class T2 structure which give T3 class units cost only 200 resources. Where's logic? And don't forget then in generated-maps RMG alwayes gives to the player T1 class buildng in the starting settlement which makes acces to class T3-units much easier.

Racial government. There're lot of strange things like a discount for making items in Dwarf cities. Seriously? Item forge doesn't cost it's price. Or additional ability for archers in Elven RG4M. Any archer becomes to weak by then.

But Tigran RG4E Temples give 200 happines and +1 Rank to new units. The key word is racial why this thing affects machines, elementals, non-racial monsters (Why Sphinx is not monster (s)he's not even humanoid but OK). The same about Draconians RG4E.

I don't kow if someone uses Item Forge in PBEM. Even in SP, I'd better have a bonus to crossbowmen, like an additional ranged attack (why not the short range powerful shot a mod gives them?).

About sphinges, I believe that they can be seen as the mystic rulers lesser Tigrans follow. Tigrans, as well as Draconians, were not all humanoids back to AoW2. It' s only the 3D skelettons that forced devs to use humanoid (or equine) models.

I use my own small mod with Item Forge price as 75g 75m only +5 science bonus and build only healing items. Otherwise better build a couple of additional units .

Beholder is not humanoid just like snakes and etc I guess there're standart animation libraries for any creature type.
