    Kael, could you make that when you cast bloom on a tile you automatically destroy all improvments in it ? Its a little boring having to pillage every single improvment from a big empire you just conquered...

    Pillage it before you conquer it, you'll get some cash :)

    It would also improve Fellowship AI behaviour once you teach the AI to use bloom forest.

    Nah, In the game im playing I conquered the whole empire with Kythra Kyriel, Baron Duin Halfmoon and Losha Valas, all turned to vamps. It would take too long to pillage it all. At least the Baron´s and Kythra´s 5 movement made it easy to pillage it all. (After I conquered).

    ...Just the three heroes alone, with no support? And you didn't get dogpiled and beaten?

    ...Playing on Chieftain, then?

    Actually it was prince or monarch... each hero had a couple of Priest of Leaves for medic support and disease-cleansing... I also caugh then off-guard because I bribed a friend to declare war on then... So all their armies were occupied when I invaded... And after Losha was born the werewolfs created by the baron were used as food to replenish the heroes...

    And remenber the Baron is str 11, Losha was 10 (heroic str I and II) and Kythra was 9 (heroic I - II), were the best defenders were some mutated Octopi priests with 7 str... And my heroes had all Combat 5, the Baron had City Raider III too, I think Losha had it too, but don´t know...

    I agree with this. I hated haveing to tow along a cavalry unit simply to pillage my own stuff in order to plant a forest. Bloom auto-pillage (maybe with 0% gold, so you couldnt use it against your enemies) would be really nice.

    Bloom is restricted to your own country anyway(?) not sure now, but spring certainly is.

    Would be nice if there was a way to automate priests so that they bloom the empire without micro managing. Annoying when you run a big empire to micromanage this.

    ya, though i think it would work better (balance wise as well) if there were some spell workers that make those type of spells take a little while (like theyre building improvements) but could be automated.

    same for vitalize and spring too, maybe some others

    Im for whatever works, but too much micromanaging is unfun. I miss the way call to power 2 handled imrpovements.
