Griffins are the fastest troops of the Empire that bears their name. They excel in skirmish attacks, flying into enemy ranks. Though weak when forced into melee, they will always defend themselves to their last breath.OffBck

The Griffin is the fourth-level creature of the Haven faction in Heroes of Might and Magic V.

Creatures with the head, wings and claws of the eagle and the body of a lion, are an integral part of the armies of the Griffin Empire. Medium strength melee troops, able to fly, griffins are not susceptible to being Blinded and have the ability of "Unlimited Retalitation".

Due to the erratic nature of their damage (5-10 damage), A hero with Divine Strength (ideally at expert level) is a HUGE help. Griffins are not capable of travelling across large distances like some of the faster creatures are, but their high initiative (15) allows them to strike more quickly than those creatures.
