Might and Magic Wiki

The Overlord is the Might hero class of the Dungeon faction in Heroes of Might and Magic III. Its Magic counterpart is the Warlock.

Overlords build dungeon lairs to protect their gains acquired through conquest. Ruling through intimidation, they tend to be warriors who know the value of magic. They often wear armor designed to enhance the ferocity of their appearance.OffBck

When leveling up, overlords are most likely to gain attack (40%) or defense (35%), and less likely to learn spellpower (15%) or knowledge (10%) for the first ten levels. After level ten, it's 30% each for attack and defense, and 20% each for spellpower and knowledge.

  • While in the final game, female overlords (Mutare, Lorelei, and Synca) look like female Warlocks in battle, the beta screenshots show them in a helmet with horns and metal bikinis (example 1, example 2 example 3).
