We are also adding whole new classes of magic items that will cast spells for you, as well as potions and scrolls to help your hero. Of course we will have some new rare item sets for the collectors out there.

Will there be more Dragons in Warlords Battlecry III?

Yes - we have 6 different types of Dragons now (actually 7 if you count the little Faerie Dragon!)

Dragons will all have different colors and attack with different breath weapons - but not every race can build every dragon type!
