The battle dwarf is an upgrade of the dwarf, the second-tier creature of the Rampart faction in Heroes of Might and Magic III. It can be recruited from the upgraded dwarf cottage.

Because of their slowness, dwarves are perhaps best used to defend ranged attackers. Dwarves and battle dwarves have, respectively, a 20% and 40% resistance to magic which gives them a chance to ignore the effects of hostile spell attacks.OffBck

It has slightly better attack and speed than the dwarf, but the greatest improvement is the magic resistance, with 40% resistance, compared to 20%. When facing powerful spellcasters, this upgrade is extremely useful.
