Dark lord
Death & Nobility
Type Advanced class
Effect Sorrow ( -10 Morale every strike)

The Dark Lord is an advanced class in Heroes of Might and Magic IV. It requires a specialization in Nobility and Death Magic. When the Dark Lord attacks, the Sorrow spell is cast on their target.


The Dark Lord is most likely to learn Nobility and Death Magic and fairly likely to learn the Tactics, Combat and Chaos magic skills. Dark Lords can not learn Life Magic or Nature Magic when leveling up unless some basic training in those skills is already known.

Comments Edit

While the Sorrow spell can be annoying for the opponent, it only costs three mana, and casting it won't leave the hero open for retaliation. This ability is usually only useful if the hero also has several levels in the Combat skill.
