Warlord is one of the 18 different Retorts available for customizing and empowering Wizards in Master of Magic. All of the Warlord Wizard's troops (including Heroes but not Fantastic Units) receive a +1 Experience Level bonus upon being recruited. Normal Units may now reach the Experience Level of Ultra Elite. At Wizard-creation, this Retort costs two picks.

Description Edit

Warlord is one of the more powerful Retorts in Master of Magic. Any Wizard possessing this Retort receives two special abilities that will positively affect him for the duration of the game.

The first ability is an immediate bonus of Icon Experience Level.png +1 Experience Level given automatically to any Normal Unit or Hero created by this Wizard. Therefore, Normal Units will be at least at a level of "Regular" (level 2, one silver pip) when created - as opposed to the standard "Recruit" level units. Heroes will also receive the +1 Experience Level bonus upon being recruited for the first time (but not on subsequent recruiting).

The second ability is an increase to the maximum allowed Experience Level for all Normal Units. These units may now reach the level of "Ultra Elite" (level 5, one gold pip), which is one level higher than the standard limit for such units. This allows them to become more powerful than any similar unit owned by a non-Warlord Wizard. This is otherwise only attainable by casting the Crusade spell.

Warlords who cast the Crusade spell will enjoy the bonuses from both the spell and the Retort. Their units will have Icon Experience Level.png +2 Experience Levels over the standard, and can reach the rank of "Champion" (Experience Level 6, two gold pips).

A Warlord has the benefit of powerful Normal Units, and thus can often rely on producing large armies from his cities - making this a good choice for Wizards who plan to focus on high production and fewer Summoning Spells. Warlords maintain a powerful advantage in straightforward combat throughout the game, and their heroes require less time and combat Experience to become effective.

When creating a new Wizard, the Warlord Retort consumes two picks. This reduces magical potential to some degree. This Retort has no prerequisites.

Tables Edit

The (non-Hero) Ultra-Elite and Champion ranks confer the following attribute bonuses to every Icon Figure.png Figure in the unit.

Level Icon Level Name Attacks To Hit Defense Resist Hits
Experience 4 Ultra-Elite Icon ToHit.png +10% Icon Defense.png +1 Icon Resist.png +1
Experience 5 Champion Icon Melee Normal.png Icon Thrown.png Icon Breath.png Icon Ranged Bow.png Icon Ranged Boulder.png Icon Ranged Magic.png +1 Icon ToHit.png +10% Icon Resist.png +1 Icon Hits.png +1

Units with lots of figures and low base scores, such as Bowmen, Spearmen, and Slingers, will achieve a drastic boost in performance. The increases Icon ToHit.png To Hit ensure that even inherently-tough units with low figure-counts, like Dragon Turtles and Minotaurs, become a lot more dangerous.
