Do we know if the Naga faction has been confirmed as the 5th faction yet?

Call me crazy, but I just think it a little odd that past HOMM installments had two (2) elf factions, but this one does not have one yet. I am totally cool with whatever the developers decide to do on this, but I was just wondering how certain we are that the 5th faction is the Naga?

No, the 5th faction hasn't been "officially" confirmed as of yet. As for the lack of an elvish faction, keep in mind that Heroes 6 is a step BACKWARDS. It's a prequel to H5. I don't know this for certain, it's just my gut feeling, but I think we'll end up seeing the Dwarves, Dungeon, Academy & Sylvan all included in the expansion packs basically bringing the game up to where H5 begins.

I think like chuckles. The old factions from H5 will be seen probably in the expansions, as they probably will get us closer to H5 time http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

BTW, I hated that HoMMV had 2 elven factions... really hated it.

Well, concerning those 2 elvish factions, the h5 histories speak of the war between them that split the elves into 2 factions. That's what I'm expecting one of the expansion packs to be...the elvish wars.

Hello Everyone,
For all of you who still have doubtshttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
For the past month I am 99.9% sure that the 5th faction will be Naga. How do I know that? Pretty simple really.

About month ago Heroes VI website was updated with creatures descriptions. I've read them all. And what struck me was that Naga was mentioned there many times.

Just look at the creatures descriptions. They look something like that:

...something about creature...some IMPORTANT quotes (like some Demon said something about this creature)... some other stuff about creature...

So summarizing there are just to many Naga quotes about other creatures.

To ease the job for those who still have doubts these are all units that have some Naga quotes. Quite a few I would say!
Stronghold: Jaguar Warrior, Cyclops
Necropolis: Ghoul, Lamasu, Fate Spinner

If you are still not convinced then read all the other creatures descriptions. All those quotes are related to factions that are already in the game, i.e. : some Demon said this about this creature, some Necromancer said this, some stronghold Shaman said this, some Pristess said this...

I hope I didn't spoil a surprise for you guys with doubtshttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I know this might be considered double posting and spamming, but since one of the people on the forum asked:
THere is a site http://www.giantbomb.com/might...-heroes-vi/61-32374/
Which lists the five factions of the game as confirmed. While it doen't expressly tell the faction is called Sanctuary, or that it's people are Nagas, it does give the exact creatures. If you look them up, you are going to find that they are indeed Nagas.
But can the site really be trusted?
Hope this helps, and tell me if anything is wrong.

Well, I'm certainly not going to spill the beans as to what the 5th faction is. It's such a well kept secret. Tomorrow, however, is another day. *wink, wink*

I guess NOW we can confirm. :O) It was unfortunate that someone leaked the pictures early. There was still some tweeking going on when that happened and the names still weren't nailed down yet either. But regardless....the town is stunning, yes? *grin*

I don't know. We didn't see any town screen yet. ;P

If by Town you mean the overall faction in general, then yes, it's nothing less than stunning. My only complain is that I would have liked the units to be more colorful but I don't mind it so much since it definitely doesn't make them look dull and other than that, I like all of the designs. Especially Irina's art and the bits and pieces of the Naga architecture we got through the video and other various screenshots. The Oriental style blends in so well with that faction.

If they got Oriental in, then it'd be nice to have Arabic faction with Genies, Camels, Elephants and suicide bombers. :P
