|Effect: Allows Rampart, Tower, Fortress, Stronghold and Castle creatures to be mixed without a morale penalty, for the player (all the creatures of good and neutral alignments in HotA) . Casts expert Prayer at the start of combat.|
Component effect: +21 to all primary skills.
|Requires to combine:|
|Armor of Wonder|

|You trip over the Angelic Alliance, dust it off, and stick it in your pack.|
In addition to the regular bonuses (a total of +21 to all primary skills), the Angelic Alliance allows the player army to include creatures from towns of good and neutral alignment while retaining the +1 morale bonus, as if they were all from one faction. In the original game , Conflux units cannot be included as they prevent the morale bonus. In Horn of the Abyss both Conflux and Cove units can be included in the army while retaining the morale bonus. Note that neutral creatures do not count as neutrally aligned for any purpose. While the artifact is equipped, the before mentioned factions, which have the morale bonus, are considered to be one faction. Adding evil units, neutral creatures, or Conflux units (the latter not in Horn of the Abyss ) prevents the morale bonus, but units from good and neutral alignment towns are still considered to be the same faction. For example, having units from Castle, Tower, and Inferno gives no morale bonus or penalty as if the hero had units of just two factions.
At the beginning of each combat (when a creature stack first becomes active), the Angelic Alliance will cast Expert Prayer for 10 rounds. Angelic Alliance gives the highest boosts to primary skills out of any combination artifact in the game, handily outclassing even Power of the Dragon Father despite filling fewer artifact slots (6, as opposed to 9 for Power of the Dragon Father).
Requires the following artifacts to create:
- Armor of Wonder
- Celestial Necklace of Bliss
- Helm of Heavenly Enlightenment
- Lion's Shield of Courage
- Sandals of the Saint
- Sword of Judgement
The mixed alignment morale penalty removal effect now affects both Conflux and Cove units. As both of these factions are neutral, the Horn of the Abyss developers decided to add them to the list of towns affected by and included in the alliance.
