Griffins and Royal Griffins are the level 3 creatures of Castle. They can be recruited from Griffin Towers.

"Griffins roost in special towers built for them on the castle grounds. Standard griffins are able to counterstrike against two attackers per turn. Royal griffins can counterstrike an unlimited number of attackers." RoE manual

Heroes with a specialty[edit]

  • Edric Edric the Knight has griffins as a specialty, which increases the attack and defense skills of any griffins for each level attained after 3rd level, and gives them a speed bonus of 1.

Tactics and info[edit]

The information found in this section is subjective. Remember that each and every situation in H3 is different and may call for different strategies and tactics.

Griffins are fast flying units with relatively high health, an interesting special ability, and quite a good growth rate if you build the Griffin Bastion. However, they have rather low damage. Royal griffins make decent siege attacker due to their unlimited retaliations, which allows them to fly over the walls and give hits in the counter attacks.
