Male and female Barbarian, ranged

The Barbarian is the hero of the Stronghold faction in Heroes of Might and Magic IV. Unlike the other factions, the Stronghold doesn't have a Magic hero.


Barbarians start out with basic Combat, Melee, and Magic Resistance, and they're the only hero to start out with three skills, rather than two.

The Barbarian is most likely to learn Combat, and fairly likely to learn Scouting. Barbarians cannot learn any magic skills when leveling up unless some basic training in those skills is already known.
