The wraith is the upgrade of the wight, the third-tier creature of the Necropolis faction in Heroes of Might and Magic III. It can be recruited from the upgraded tomb of souls.

Wights and wraiths are life destroying spirits damaging their opponents by draining life. The first wight or wraith in each troop regenerates all lost damage at the beginning of each combat round. While wraiths appear on the battlefield, two spell points per turn are drained from an enemy spellcaster’s spell pool.OffBck

It has slightly higher speed than the wight, but the main advantage of the wraith is that every round, it drains two spell points from enemy heroes. When facing enemy spellcasters, this upgrade can be very useful.


  • Charna is a specialist in wraiths, and gives them +1 to Attack and Defense per hero level after third level. These creatures also get +1 to Speed.
  • The icons of the wight and the wraith were switched in one of the patches. In the HD-edition of Heroes III, the creatures still have the old icons.
