Thant the Necromancer is a Necropolis hero. Thant starts with a spell book and the spell Animate Dead.


Thant's specialty increases the effect of Animate Dead as follows:

   Animated HP = (SP*50+30)*(1+[N/n]*0.03) - for Basic Earth Magic
   Animated HP = (SP*50+60)*(1+[N/n]*0.03) - for Advanced Earth Magic
   Animated HP = (SP*50+160)*(1+[N/n]*0.03) - for Expert Earth Magic

Where N is Thant's level and n is the creature level. Thus, the effect is stronger for lower-level creatures.

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

Thant is one of the most powerful Necropolis heroes. He starts with Animate Dead and, as a Necromancer, typically learns Earth Magic. His specialty in Animate Dead allows him to raise units more efficiently as well. Thanks to this, Thant tends to lose far less units in battle, which in combination with the Necromancy ability can let him raise a fearsome army faster than other heroes. Unfortunately, one of his valuable skill slots is wasted by the less valuable Mysticism skill. However, in HotA, thanks to buffed Mysticism, Thant is arguably the most fearsome hero in the entire game, being able to recover his mana quickly and cast Animate Dead again and again, marching through map without any losses and harvesting bodies of neutral creatures for his Army of Darkness.
