Guide: Weather-Powers in BFME

IPB Image


Hello BFME1 players, I am HungryTroll, and today I will tell you about the weather in BFME. I shall be talking about abilities like Mordor Darkness, Isengard Rain, and Fol Cloudbreak. Many players ask questions like how do these abilities stack up, Cloudbreak is counter Rain/Darkness or not, and etc.

Let us first consider these abilities:


1. IPB Image Darkness - unique ability of Mordor, this power gives + 33% damage, and + 50% armor to all allied forces (except for siege weapons).
Cost - 6 power points. Time of action - 3 min. Recovery time - 5 min.

2. IPB Image Rain - unique ability of Isengard, this power cancels all enemys Leaderships Bonus.
Cost - 6 power points. Time of action - 3 min. Recovery time - 5 min.

3. IPB Image CloudBreak - ability of Fol (forces of light) armies - Rohan and Gondor. This reduces enemy's armor by 50%, movement speed of units by 30%, and stuns first level enemy troops.

Cost - 7 power points. Time of action - 35 seconds. Recovery time - 6 min 15 seconds.



The table below depicts how each ability interacts with each other:

IPB Image does not cancel IPB Image - both abilities interact, both opponents play with increased leaderships.
IPB Image does not cancel IPB Image - if after switching on Rain the Darkness is turned on, there will be no effects other than a loss of ability.
IPB Image does not cancel IPB Image - the player who turns on the CloudBreak gets his bonuses, and the other - his own.

IPB Image____cancels/////IPB Image - Rain cancels Darkness, because this is the Leader's Bonus, if Darkness first turns on, subsequent activation of Rain will annul it.
IPB Image does not cancel IPB Image - both rain effects work, without affecting each other.
IPB Image does not cancel IPB Image - powers interact, one player loses his Leadership Bonuses, while the other slows down, gets stunned and loses armor.

IPB Image does not cancel IPB Image - Cloudbreak does not annuls Darkness, this is the wrong opinion of the beginners.
IPB Image does not cancel IPB Image - Cloudbreak does not annuls Rain. The player who turned on the rain, just is under the Cloudbreak effect.
IPB Image does not cancel IPB Image - both Cloudbreak's just work. Both players slow down, stunned and lose armor.


Pro-Tip

  1. Few people know, but the terrible effect of Rain can be undone. In fact, this is a bug that is even in version 1.06. This is possible when in the game enemy (or his ally) lay down their land and if your troops at the time of the Rain are passing through the enemy land and come out from it, the Leadership Bonuses will return and remain with your troops even if the Rain is active.

  2. Rain does not cancel the leadership of the troops who exit the buildings after the Rain is switched on.

  3. Rain does not cancel the leadership of the troops who resurrected at the well (fountain) after turn on the Rain.

  4. Rain does not cancel the leadership of the troops who have resurrected themselves (lvl 2 battalion or more).

  5. Troops, whom lured Saruman and whom returned back, can also receive leadership bonuses even if the rain is working.
