Might and Magic X Legacy Level Up Guide
In Might and Magic X Legacy, the heroes in the party will have to level up in order to take on and slew bigger and nastier monsters. Otherwise they will have to remain in the town of Sporpigal-On-Sea and defeat giant spiders. To level up initially, the heroes will have to gain experience points from defeating the giant spiders, and especially the spider queen. Once the hero levels up, he will have some skill points to distribute into the various skill categories. The key is to distribute the skill points correctly and create an evenly balanced party with expertise from ranged combat to magic attacks to melee attacks so that the party can take on any monster and heal up after the battle.
This will guide the raiders with a description of the skills so that the party can level up most appropriately to create the most effective team of adventurers.
Might and Magic X Legacy Character Creation Guide
With the full version of might and magic X legacy, one can choose from a variety of races and classes within the world of Ashan to create the ultimate party. This brief character creation guide will allow one to visualize one's ultimate party as one gains experiences and becomes legends in Ashan. The races available are - human, elf, dwarf and orc.
The human classes are -
- Mercenary - the advanced class is the Windsword. The Windsword can do the Perfect Strike. Against an enemy with full health, the Windsword first strike cannot be blocked or evaded and is always a critical. The Windword's Dash allows the party to dash forward one tile.
- Crusader - the advanced class is the Paladin. The Paladin can Lay on Hands, where he or she can spend all his mana to restore the health of all party members. The Mandate of Heaven allows one to call upon Elrath to enchant all melee and ranged weapons and magical foci in the hands of each party member, thus adding light damage to the normal damage.
- Freemage - the advanced class is the Archmage. The freemage can Time Freeze, where the enemeis outside cannot be attacked or attack or move. This incredible tactical advantage allows the freemages within the time frozen sphere to buff up and heal up and begin battle anew.
The elf classes are -
- Bladedancer - the advanced class is the Blademaster. The Blademaster can Cleave, allowing one additional action if he defeated at least one enemy with a melee attack. The Bladedancer starts with the Earth class, so that means he or she can cast regeneration as this additional action. The blademaster can do the Carnage move, where he performs a full melee attack against every enemy around the party. "Death is swift, and the Blademaster is eternal" will be the motto of the ultimate blademaster.
- Ranger - the advanced class is the Warden. The warden can do a point blank shot, where he performs a ranged attack against all enemies in front of the party.
- Druid - the advanced class is the Druid Elder. The druid elder can clam all enemies in sight with Harmony. The druid elder can also Nurture, regenerating health of the character with the lowest health every turn.
The dwarf classes are -
- Defender - the advanced class is the Shield Guard. The Shield Guard uses a shield wall to block a few attacks.
- Scout - the advanced class is the Pathfinder. The range of the pathfinder's crossbow attacks is increased by 2. This is the Long Range skill. The Snaring Short can immobilize the target of his first strike until the end of the turn.
- Runepriest - the advanced lass is the Runelord. The Runelord can create the Searing Rune, which deals fire damage to everyone on the tile and around it. Fire is the power of the Rune Priest, and he or she can practice fire magic to the grandmaster level.
The orc classes are -
- Barbarian - the advanced class is the Warmonger. The warmonger can go into Bloodrage, where he will deal more damage the greater his health is below his maximum.
- Hunter - the advanced class is the Marauder. The maurauder can go create Crippling Trap, where he sets up a trap on the party's position, causing damage and decreased action to enemies. The Harpoon allows the marauder to throw a harpoon to enemy within a range of 4. If the strike is successful and not blocked, the target is dragged into the melee range of the party.
- Shaman - the advanced class is the Blood Caller. The Blood Caller uses Blood Magic to restore mana to health lost due to enemy attacks.
Might and Magic X Legacy - Example of a Party and How to Level Up early in the game
The easy party to create to cause overwhelming damage (and use up a lot of mana potions) early in the game may include the following -
- 2 human freemages
- 1 dwarf rune priest
- 1 fighter type character - in this case, an elven bladedancer
One human freemage will specialize in air magic, and the other in dark magic (to grandmaster level). Both should level up the fire magic category as early as possible to the expert tier. This will increase the freebie fire magic spell Firebolt at the start of the game, making enemies easy to defeat. One or both of the freemages should have the Earth magic and get the regeneration spell early on so that there is some healing within the party in the two main quests in the initial stages of the game.
For the human freemages, the important attributes are Magic and Spirit. Just keep adding points to these two attributes, and the power of the fire magic spells will be impressive and unstoppable.
The dwarf rune priest will specialize in fire magic and light magic. Once the dwarf rune priest has enough experience, level up the light magic to the expert level, and get the Heal spell from the Arcane library in Sorpigal-By-the-Sea. Level up the attributes of this character using the same principles as the human freemages.
The idea here is to create a spell damage intensive party so that enemies are defeated easily. This means the party can save on mana potions, health potions and rations.
The elven bladedancer is the hardest to level up, because one has to distribute points into every attribute that she has, including might, magic, perception, destiny, vitality and spirit. At the beginning, add points to might, destiny and vitality. The add points to spirit and raise the mana to 30. This is so that she can get the regeneration spell and use it. The elven bladedancer will be used as a healer initially in situations where her dual wield and sword skills are below average, and the magic users' fire spells are more effective than her melee attacks. Later on, the elven bladedancer will become a formidable warrior and magic user indeed.
Of course, one should create and tailor one's party to one's adventuring lifestyle. This is but one example.

Higher damage with spells like the firebolts are needed. Do not venture into the outside world without being at least level 2 or 3.
