'''Morale''' represents [[troop stack]]'s willingness to fight. High morale can allow creatures to receive an extra attack during [[combat]] round, while low morale can cause them to freeze and lose the turn. Good morale is received after the troop stack has acted, which means that the creatures will have a chance to act again immediately. Bad morale happens at the very beginning of creature stack's turn, and causes them to "freeze in panic".
  
Each hero has an army consisting of [[troop]]s, and the army has a morale rating which acts as a bonus to the individual morale of its troops. Troops in an army with positive morale have a chance for a second action during their action phase. Troops with negative morale have a chance of freezing each round. The morale rating for an army is normally zero.
+
The morale value of a creature stack can vary from -3 to +3. The game manual erroneously states the probability of receiving good or bad morale is equal at 1/24 (4.17 %) times morale value. As shown in the table on the right, it is more probable to receive bad morale than good morale. The troop stack's morale value is mainly determined by army's morale rating, which acts as a bonus to the individual morale of its troops. Thus the creature stack's morale can differ from hero's army's morale. Army's morale can be affected in various ways, which are listed below.
  
Various creatures, spells, secondary skills, town buildings, adventure sites, and artifacts can temporarily (or even permanently) affect morale.
+
Golems, undead and elementals are unaffected by morale, meaning that their morale rating is always zero.
  
Undead  creatures and elementals  have  a  morale of zero, independent  of their  army’s  morale rating.

The chance of getting a morale is equal to '''1/24 * morale value'''. Note that this can be a negative as well, in which case the unit has bad morale, which causes your units to freeze and skip the turn.  A hero's units have double the chance of freezing with bad morale than having a second attack with the same level of good morale. Not correctly documented in the manual. Also, morale modifiers are capped at +3 and -3.

Base morale is what you get from having an army composed of units from certain towns. You get lower base morale the more towns you have units from in your army ([[Neutral]] counts as a town)- You start off at +1, and get -1 for each new alignment you add.(So if you have creatures from 3 town types, you have -1 as base morale). Bonuses for having [[Archangel]]s and/or [[Undead]] are not counted here.

'''Miscellaneous:'''

Morale represents troop stack's willingness to fight. High morale can allow creatures to receive an extra attack during combat round, while low morale can cause them to freeze and lose the turn. Good morale is received after the troop stack has acted, which means that the creatures will have a chance to act again immediately. Bad morale happens at the very beginning of creature stack's turn, and causes them to "freeze in panic".

The morale value of a creature stack can vary from -3 to +3. The game manual erroneously states the probability of receiving good or bad morale is equal at 1/24 (4.17 %) times morale value. As shown in the table on the right, it is more probable to receive bad morale than good morale. The troop stack's morale value is mainly determined by army's morale rating, which acts as a bonus to the individual morale of its troops. Thus the creature stack's morale can differ from hero's army's morale. Army's morale can be affected in various ways, which are listed below.

Golems, undead and elementals are unaffected by morale, meaning that their morale rating is always zero.
