Marignon Edition

Dominions is a fantasy turn-based strategy game created by two dudes. One of them is a teacher.

The game combines a simple presentation with an extremely wide array of strategic options, including over 2800 units, 800 spells and 300 magic items. Turns are resolved simultaneously, with players planning battles rather than directly controlling them.

It has simplistic graphics but is easily moddable and extremely deep.

Basically, it's an autist’s wet dream of a strategy game.

how useful is EA caelum rushing conjuration and going for the national summons + elemental royalty + tarrasque and go full meme mode using them as SCs?
Also which one is caelum's late game strategy other than thunder spam?

other than that, are tarrasque as good as they seem or are they just a noob trap? 25 nature gems for a SC chassis seems pretty good
>>
>>121410246
EA Caelum can actually do really well for a long time without their summons
>>
>>121410246
Tarrasques are big meat shields, nothing more. They're hard to tug around because of MM1 and can be tricky to place for most armies due to their poison aura. There's better ways to spend nature gems, in short.

>>121410493
Oh, thanks anon. you avoided me some time and disappointment.

Also speaking of that, I usually find myself not being able to use all of my gems other than forging vine shields and other magic items. Is there a thumb rule for which ones are the best ways to spend them?
>>
>>121410635
They are expensive and have limited use but I wouldn't really call them a trap.

There's a place for one or two 200 hp units in any army. I'd rather get leviathans at half the price half a game earlier though.

>>poison cloud so mages can't buff it without poison res
Eh, if you are at conj 9 you can probably spare an extra 3 gems to give your mage a ring or just cast an army wide buff.
>>
>>121410908
You can just use vine ogres for evo catchers if you really cared. Tree Lords and Ivy Kings seems a much better use of gems in comparison.
>>
>>121411092
Harder to hit one-two units than a whole stack of them, especially under precision debuffs.
It's pretty neat to see a large stack of shit missing 90% of the shots trying to hit two units on the side of the map.
>>
>>121411369
Vine Ogres have so much health it doesn't really matter though and you can get 16 of them for the price of 1 tarrasque

There's pretty much nothing in conj that caelum actually wants. You want fog warriors, wrathful skies, phantasmal army, storm, tstrike, in roughly reverse that order. You go conj largely to pick up exciting mages to cap thrones with for stealth birdman thronecap victory. Living Air isn't bad. Better than phantasmal army when you need a big pile of bullshit to slow enemies down with.

Honestly, I don't know. I have one running for 10-something turns in one of my games, and I have absolutely no idea how effective it is. I mean, it kills 80 and wounds 160 guys per turn, but those may as well be longdeads or militia.

Now, maybe if you combine it with Foul Air...

I've never been impressed with the spell.

Even Perpetual Storm with a non-air nation seems like a better idea.

>>121419615
If you're just trying to shake up a full global roster, it's probably better than Dispel, and if you stumble upon being able to cast it, hey, why not

I mean, it's probably worth two golems
>>
>>121414610
Dakinis cost slaves, fly, have life drain, and can use all the air buffs they want.
Most importantly they cost slaves, which are a lot cheaper than gems.

Wrath of God takes S pearls

M8, Foul Air works for the whole map, and even against the player who cast it.

It's basically single wound ("wound" is some % of hitpoints, as far as I remember) = unit diseased.

here's a question: does fires from afar do more damage to units with fire weaknesses?

Alright.

Yes.It also deals less / no damage to units with fire resistance.
>>
>>121421040
So Djesse also hasn't put in his turn yet on your game, alright.

Some guy posted about someone being late with their turn.

Some other guy said it was actually about some other person.

Then the first guy came back and was like 'no, it's not'

Then the second guy was like 'lol no it was i'm right don'tlookatme'

And the first guy kept arguing, and the second guy kept trying to act like he was right

Compared to 'ANIME WAIFUS' and edgy memelording, it's vastly better. Actually dominions related, not too serious, funny.

I've been personally trying to find some good pictures to make some 'the elves are coming' memes. Like 'fuck, hide, the elves are coming' because that happens a lot in this game. Scary blood-mad glamour assholes all through your shit while you try desperately to get them off you.

Godspeed.
I like the idea of having succint troop overviews in the strategy section, since the idea is that it'll explain what certain troops do a little better. I'd also recommend taking a look at that "How each nation changes through the ages" picture that keeps floating around here so you can make any fluff edits.

But generally, talk about the nations strengths, its weaknesses, and give an explanation for all relevant mechanics and/or special abilities. A Pan page should probably include at least a link to the awe and seduction pages, as well as mention the fact that your dominion summons bitches.

I use the EA Niefelheim page, for whatever its worth.
>>

http://dom4.wikia.com/wiki/Agartha_(Early_Ages)

EA Agartha mostly done. Need to add a sentence or two explaining the scrying you can do with earth mages, as well as actually test out what BREAK THE SEAL really does. As well, we need to link to some of the many guides for it.

Am trying to leave the strategy overview as just an explanation of the various mechanics of the nation, with the numerous guides actually giving some opinion. The wiki page will bring up that Agarthans have Cold Blood, and ideally the guide will mention that a pretender should go heat 3.

Lemme know if you find anything wrong with it.
>>
>>121448570
Maybe make a reference to their magic access in the strategic overview (Deep earth, shallow death/water/fire). Might also be worth mentioning that they have efficient national summons.

Honestly, this is a solid entry though. Great job.
>>
>>121448570
>The wiki page will bring up that Agarthans have Cold Blood, and ideally the guide will mention that a pretender should go heat 3.
The wiki should mention that taking heat scales can mitigate the downsides of cold blood and thus can be considered an advisable scale. That's well within the realm of the sufficiently objective.
>>
>>121448570
>as well as actually test out what BREAK THE SEAL really does

You get over a hundred Umbrals, (Or penumbrals, whichever the little guys are), darkness persists for a few turns, and the 3 god vessels appear in random places and then halfassedly wander towards capitals, though they don't necessarily choose the capital they're closest to

killing a God Vessel unleashes a Legion of Gods

It's an attack, defense, and AP penalty. I'd have to double check, but I think it's either 4 or 6.
>>
>>121449048
it's -3

BUT underwater is also dark so I believe you're right in that the net penalty to attack and defense for your average dude is -4 in shallow ocean and -6 in deep
>>
>>121449048
Just checked, it's -3 attack and defense. It's hard to tell what the AP penalty is, since some of my units are showing base 11 reduced to 4, some are showing base 11 reduced to 5, and the base 6 soulless are reduced to 3. I think it's -6 capped at a minimum AP of 3, and that the ones reduced to 4 are being slowed by armor.

1. Is there anything I can summon to claim thrones? The map is pretty big and my pretender and prophet can't be everywhere.

2. The map is huge and I need to spread my dominion around. If my priests are weak and I have basically no dominion far from my home provinces is Enchanted Forests a good thing to cast?

>2. The map is huge and I need to spread my dominion around. If my priests are weak and I have basically no dominion far from my home provinces is Enchanted Forests a good thing to cast?

build lot of temples even in your most protect, inland provinces. hae an astral2 earth 2 mage craft lot of stone idols and one of them to each scout , moving them in provinces of enemy dominion bordering your dominion.
if you are a nation that is able to blood sacrifice you should do it massively. if not the best you can do is to have level 2/ priests preach in low dominion provinces. if stealthy they can preach in enemy provinces. preaching is not that powerful unless you have holy 3 priests, because it has very little chance to succeed in high friendly or enemy dominion, it's just an option to acelerate the work of your temples.
>>
>>121459071
Enchanted Forests will give you a massive increase to dominion spread, but it's likely to piss off other players. Unless you're confident you can take on the world or you're playing against AI, don't cast it.

>>121459139
Hey, that's a really neat idea, I forgot about those.

>>121459820
>preaching is not that powerful unless you have holy 3 priests, because it has very little chance to succeed in high friendly or enemy dominion
Friendly dominion doesn't affect success chance, preachers just can't increase dominion above a certain level.

200 mages casting life4life or leech.

Oh or drain life but thats way harder to cast and more difficult to amass 200 mages capable of casting that. Also range compared to life4life.

I want to try and actually win with EA R'lyeh in a multiplayer game. Do you think this can be done? My reasoning is that since the national troops are really awful the only way to salvage the nation is to focus on summoning with a dedicated rainbow. The fighting portion of the army will have to be mostly summons. Thus the pretender should be an oldschool rainbow capable of casting a lot of different spells.

>>
>>121473826
>>121474207
also staff of storms.
Air globals are also cool.

Air isn't one of the gem types there aren't many uses for.
>>
>>121480991
Trols and krakens are actually pretty weak. Amber and Shark tribe is scary though
>>
>>121489191
which ones are the less usable gems? water?
>>
>>121489528
Fire. Water isn't that great unless you have construction or thaumaturgy.
>>
>>121489528
Fire and Astral.
Fire can boost RP and summon some really shitty shit.
Astral can do things super late game or be converted into useful gems, it has a handful of good summons, but it requires high level mages and/or crosspaths to be truly useful.
>>
>>121489528
>>121490048
fire and water is right.
And it's not that they aren't useful, it's that they have limited uses.
Waters can make good things, but the list is short. Water bottles, brands and boosters is about it. With Vengeful waters being the other main use.
Fire has lanterns, fire in a jar. Fire helm are crappy boosters, but they are boosters. If you have things to cross the fire list the uses expand a lot in terms of construction though.
>>
What does /domg/ see as the most useful gem type, the one that they can literally never have enough of?
Death for me, even on a low to no death nation I always crave more Death gems, there are just so many good uses.
>>
>>121490518

Earth and nature are way better in big quantities.
>>
>>121490298
conversions, boosters, antimagic amulets, and such means pearls are pretty useful.
Even without high level casters I never find I have too many of them.

>>
>>121490565
nature? which ones are the best ways to spend nature gems? i tend to spend them randomly with "summon animals" and shit like that
>>
>>121490518
>>121490565
earth, nature and death are probably top, though I'd put earth as the leader there.

Death becomes some you want a lot more of the more death you have access to, if you've only got death 1 with a little 2 you mainly want death gems to get more death power to start doing the death things. At higher death you can do so much.

Nature makes a few very good, useful and spamable items at just N2, and has couple of summons that are quite useful, but if you don't have thugs, need supply or the crosspaths it gives it's usefulness decreases.

Earth has a lot of different uses, I can't think of a nation that can use earth that doesn't want to be using all the earth gems it can get it's hands on.

Thistle maces to turn all your nature mages better.
Boots and amulets to give reinigorate to your mages.
Vine shields for all of your thugs.
Bags of wine to solve all of your supply problems.
Troll tribe can get you into earth or death if you haven't already gotten there.

The sleeper is a great commander.
If you can do it, lamia queens unlock more paths.
>>
>>121491504
Pack of Wolves gives stealthy patrollers.
>>
>>121491504
Faerie Court is good, Lamias are probably the best troop and the good globals are: gift of health, enchanted forests, wild hunt, gift of natures bounty.

They need to be overcast though, which is the only time saving gems is reasonable.
>>
>>121491282
on this note. Air is funny in that at low air there isn't much use outside of quills, bows and winged boots.

But once you get a Air 4 you can consume air gems faster than you can earn them if the game isn't over. Boosters are things you want, trade winds, useful summons, staff of the storm, wind ride.

Gentlemen, I present you with the greatest clusterfuck to grace us since Flatus.

http://www.llamaserver.net/gameinfo.cgi?game=LotusClusterfuck

Twelve players, twenty five provinces. Max gold, max resources, max supplies. Very easy researching. Big armies, strong SC pretenders and NO SCALES predicted.

Don't bother aiming for late game. Don't bother aiming for mid game. Early is the name of the game.

P.S.: No underwater nations allowed.

I still can't contact Amuys after a week a few weeks? How long has it been? after the incident, so we need a replacement for him.

All players have good positions, and nobody staled even once (except Amuys when he died). Mictlan has a global in place, and is going strong.

I know earth gives protection and death gives fear but what else?
>>
>>121496416
>>121496416

it's on the goddamn manual.
anyway you should check out low level alteration/enchantment buffs.
>>
>>121496416
Golems tend to be popular since they can't be targeted by cascades, duel, or the blood damage spells, have 0 encumbrance, and come with fire and poison res. They can teleport in and cast astral shield and ethereal on themselves. The downside is shatter does a number on them and they have shit combat stats.
>>
>>121496416
Fire gives pheonix pyre, air gives mistform and cloud trapeze for mobility, nature gives personal regeneration. But really, an actual SC needs something that can kill an army, which limits you to stuff like soul vortex, firestorm, soul drain, and so on. Of course, a lot of these are hard to cast and knock the caster out, so getting a SC that works and won't die to any number of mages is pretty damn hard.
>>
>>121496416
Now that you know all about SCs, come join SC pretender clusterfuck central!
>>
>inb4 5 stales this turn

>>
>>121497143
Yeah, caster SCs are more focused on using spells like firestorm or elemental spam to kill enough to cause a rout or completely destroy an army.
Melee SCs tend to focus on being tanky enough to outlast the enemy and slowly destroy the enemy through attrition or turn limit

It depends. If you're playing a spooky nation, then you're better off with lanterns, because you need death gems for mages, summons, and shit.
>>
>>121499725
If you have const6 and shit research but gems/mages for effectively using other paths/non-gem spells, yes.
>>
>>121491173

Nature has amazingly good and useful globals, excellent summons (lamias, faerie courts, troll tribes can carry the game alone), potent battle spells (howl, relief, swarm) and very easy to get gem gen.

Earth opens up instantly summoned armies (hidden in X), awesome buffs and battle spells (RoS, EQ) and decent globals.

And both have great forging too.
>>
>>121493916
I managed to get a message back from him on steam saying that he hasn't been feeling well. He was also posted in the thread yesterday and the day before.

>>
>>121498562
You craft a skullstaff and black book of secrets (artifacts).
You give skullstaff to D2, summon mound fiend.
Give both to D3 mound fiend, now you've got D5.
Now you can summon a lich.
Lich with skullstaff and black book of secrets is capable of crafting skull face.

Well, congratulations, you've got D7 and that's pretty much all the death ever, including tartarian factory (possibly more than one).

Without artifact you are limited to D4 on skullstaffed mound fiends.
>>
>>121503970
You can always cast twiceborn though. It has a chance to give +1d.

>>121504148
I'm not really sure if undead can be twiceborned, but I don't find twice born reliable enough in general.
>>
>>121504414
Undead can't be twiceborned. But it's a good way to get into death without researching Construction 8.
>>
>>121504801
>But it's a good way to get into death
He's got D2 as base, he's not going to go higher than D4 with twiceborn without construction 8. (so, same as mound fiend)
You need a base D3 mage to twiceborn to get over the D5 hurdle and then artifacts anyway for maximum death like tarts.

Fomoria, if you want our war to be over, pull your troops back this turn and I will do the same.

Then we'll talk about new borders.

Next time, if you really want to avoid war it is perhaps a good idea to abstain from invading provinces that belong to me without comment and ignoring any in-game messages until I'm elbow deep in your anus.

Question about Thug/SC's for LA Ragha.

Are any of their commanders/summons well suited for thugging (like the Griffon Rider), or should I just stick with Banes/Sleepers?

Secondly, are spentas worth decking out as SC's? Their stats seem *okay* (Awe 5, Invul 20 seems good), although I am not sure what items would go particularly well on them. I know that "it depends", but I am wanting to know if I am trying to polish a turd here and should use my gems elsewhere This is strictly endgame of course, not a core strategy just wondering if it is an option if the game gets to that point.

Thirdly, what do I spend my Fire Gems on? I always feel like I have a bunch sitting there doing nothing. Should I just use them to summon Flame Spirits more aggresively?

They're a pretty small and insular community, but they do care about playing (if that makes sense). Less likely to stale than most.
>The dominions IRC plays blitzes
Not really. One guy tries constantly to get games going, but the /domg/ steam group is honestly the best place to find blitzes that I know of. For the most part, everyone there is just from Desura, so it's not really a distinct community.
>But desura/dom3mods are your best bet
This, honestly. Desura's still the most active, in spite of its impending demise.

Rough luck. I lost my gold investment for one of those happenings too.
>>
>>121635904
it's funny because everybody hates me for that throne, but i ironically got memed on the hardest.

by the way if Stale Agartha is here, you should scout harder and attack independents with less units. You are overkilling guys with your 80+ army with like 10 great olms or whatever they are called, that lowers your expanding speed.
>>
>>121637620
Reminder: every cave lets Agartha recruit Olms. Olms are murder rape in large numbers.

>>121633995
I'm at war with dual bless Niefelhiem, and they've both got massive armies staring at each other and have been for 10 turns.
>>
>>121638101
Literally that

Is there any strategy to fight them other than endless horde or high as fuck magic resist?
>>
>>121637620
I know, I need to get more commanders out so I can divide some of those stacks. But I need big ones like that to have the critical mass necessary to take throne provinces easily.

>>121638101
Only if there's a temple, though. And Agartha's only priests need a lab and a fort as well as a temple, and each olm is 50g. And olms are only really rapey at substantially more gold investment than the enemy has. And caves have shit gold income. Managing the Agarthan economy is very frustrating.
>>
>>121638295
Mindless units(with mindless commanders), or simply guerilla warfare.
>>
>>121638295
they prioritize high HP units, so if you can get stuff like ogre chaff, they'll eat all the mindblasts while your real units kill stuff.

Massed archers are good vs Agartha in general as well (especially if you can cast the buffs for them, of course) and olms don't help fight against that, since they're 5 times as expensive as the archers and can only tag 1 at a time

>>121638691
You only need 1 priest to build temples. Just have him roam around and build them. Also you should have prioritized getting above ground and building forts in you higher income provinces since that gives them a bonus on top of the admin bonus.
>>

Managing Agarthan logistics is even more frustrating than Agarthan economy.

That sounds nice and all but then things like this happen. Sounds very possible if you play your cards right, but marauders are a fucking pain to deal with without guns. It;s my first time playing through and I really got sucked in after a few hours of playing it despite parts of the game being barely functional.
>>
>>121653160
You can't trust bats either, they just get stuck in your hair all day and scream at nothing.
>>
>>121658092
the hardest sequence is the one where the hunchback and his firebombers hole up near the abottoir. Haven't gotten up to it in the HD remake yet but it's the most tempting place to use a gun in the scalpel only playthrough. Marauders can be beaten, but they are much more efficient to shoot; however you can typically avoid most such enemies. Looters especially, after the ones you have to encounter doing quests, only show up in locked districts.

Thoughts? My pretender is primarily there for late game Astral presence, being a forge slut (Air, Earth, and Astral are a pretty potent forging combination), and having painless access to my Yazad/Spenta half of my national summons. The last one is significant, since it is otherwise a huge pain in the ass since natively you would have to rely on getting a 40 gem summon with a 1/4th chance for S3.

Alternatives: I could replace Astral with Nature (Love and War) which will, essentially, give my nation very strong access to every path (Nature has some great summons), but my Astral presence will be significantly weaker.

Thoughts? (I have also tried W9Ex and N9Ex bless for a sacred strategy, which works pretty well).
>>
>>121663512

Didn't mean double thoughts. Only one thoughts is necessary.
>>
>>121663512
One of the cool things about Ragha is that your national mages can get your evil summons, unlike Caelum which needs the pretender for that. The fact that you don't need to go fire/death on your pretender to get them (and they really are some great mage summons) is pretty liberating.

Since you're going Heat Ragha, I'd go with the water bless that you mentioned. Zhayeden are amazing murder machines. The good Yazad/Spenta are fine, but costly in pearls, so there's no need to devote your pretender to getting them.
>>
>>121650428
It's just one little thug, did it really get your feathers that In a twist?
>>
>>121664175
F9 heat ragha seems way better in my testing and theorycrafting. F9 gives you magic weapons ap damage and causes your four attacks to create an even wider gap between the griffins attack and the opponents defence if that is an issue, elves for example or even high end thugs.
>>
>>121670675
Oh and F9 means you can levy your infinite F gems to cast globals or alchemy spells.

>>121670675
They get 3 attacks, not 4. Also, W9 both increases their damage output and defense.
>>
>>121673319

if MapmakingIsHard ever starts then ill write one for it when it finishes
>>
>>121673450
I forgot lances stop after the first hit.
their defence is pretty negligible even with the added 4 from W bless, it only takes it to 15 +4 shield parry.

You can also go without a major bless and opt for scales and minor instead. Ragha can expand pretty well with elephants and still have decent Zhaeydan
>>
>>121676960
mono bless or X9E4 costs almost nothing on their wide variety of chassis, there's little point in not going for a bless as hotragha

Am I the only one who outright refuses to play a nation which needs to field mages in numbers? If you only need a few mages to cast big buffs then when the lategame comes around you can protect them from turn 1 EQs/RoSs by forging a few armor suits. If you rely on communions you're fucked.
>>
>>121677293
I love mages. I just can't get enough. I always want more of them. In every place, in every era, I need more mages.
>>
>>121677293
Jotunheim/Niefelheim can do very tanky communions. Skratti werewolf slaves also bring their own regeneration, which stacks with the personal regen cast by a Gygja.
>>
>>121677389
Sure, but most mages should be stay at home mages. The angels in the lab supporting the alpha mages wearing Armor of Knights and casting Fog Warriors.

Any nation with good troops and casters with at least 2 in a path can do this. You can climb up to the requisite 4-6 with some boosters/gems.
