Bless Bless
Starting movement points:

Adela the Cleric is a Castle hero. Adela starts with a spell book and the spell Bless.


Adela does not appear in the story text of any campaign levels.


The following Heroes Chronicles campaign happens long before the Restoration Wars, so this appearance should not be considered canonical.

Revolt of the Beastmasters
The First Law as an enemy.


Adela's specialization increases the damage of a creature under bless for 3% per each Adela's level in ratio with creature level by following formulas:

If Attack of blessed creature is more than Defense of attacked creature for Advanced/Expert School of Water Magic:

final_damage = (max_creature_damage + 1) * (1 + 0.05 * (Attack - Defense) + 0.03 * Adela_lvl / creature_lvl)

If Attack of blessed creature is less than Defense of attacked creature for Advanced/Expert School of Water Magic:

final_damage = (max_creature_damage + 1) * (1 - 0.025 * (Defense - Attack)) * (1 + 0.03 * Adela_lvl / creature_lvl)

Subtract the unit from the first parentheses for each of the formulas for None / Basic School of Water Magic.

If you want to take into account more circumstances like a Luck or an Offense and etc. which affect final damage read the article Damage.

Some may find the information in this section subjective or irrelevant.

Combined with diplomacy and wisdom starting skills, Adela's bless spell specialty makes her a solid hero for any town (perhaps except necropolis).

The extra damage from Bless is in the same damage formula multiplier (I3) as the bonuses for specialization in Offense and Archery, so they're directly comparable. Compared to the Offense specialty (with Expert skill), Adela will affect first level creatures twice as much, second level the same, and all others less. She will also benefit ranged attackers; on the other hand, Bless has to be cast in every battle and might be dispelled. Compared to Orrin (with Expert Archery), Adela's bonus is 20% better for Master Gremlins and Halflings, and inferior otherwise.
