Might be worth spending a few dollars, you get a ton of content for such a low price.

After playing on and off for the past few months, I've finally managed to complete the SoD campaign. Some missions were really frustrating, but overall it was pretty fun.

I think that's the only campaign I never obtained. Do you play custom maps? I enjoyed the Pride maps (Angelic, Devilish and Titanic Pride).

(Meanwhile I really wanted to find a specific map set, just to find out they were Heroes 2 maps... really brutal and story-rich maps made by Corribus.)

I played a few, not those you mentioned though. My favourite one is All for One, just because it's the map I played as a kid. I've also played a few Island maps, since the random map generator is terrible at making them.

Ah, this is a stock map, there are really good ones, I loved Titan's Winter, for example. For a good old quick multiplayer game Manifest Destiny is the best! :D
The map I mentioned is user-made. They are pretty much challenging, sometimes even sadistic. :D You can find a lot at Celestial Heavens.

I would like to learn more about the in-depth strategies in Heroes III. Here is one thing I learned through in-game experimentation.

Few = 1-4
Several = 5-9
Pack = 10-19
Lots = 20-49
Horde = 50-99
Throng = 100-249
Swarm = 250-499
Zounds = 500-999
Legion = 1000-4000 (4000 is MAX)
And we keep driving into the night

What do you need help with? Map exploring? Battle? Building?

What's your favourite faction?

Btw, you can find pretty much anything regarding general mechanic explanations here: http://heroes.thelazy.net/wiki/

I am mostly interested in troop sizes required to take down another troop. For example, can I calculate how many Gargoyles I need to take down 76 Elite Griffins?

Gargoyles are pretty meh, so probably like a thousand :silly:

Can't really help with that. It's very situational and you get to learn it with experience. You also need less and less troops the better you learn to play.
