The nomad is one of the second level creatures available in the Stronghold town in Heroes of Might and Magic IV.

Strategy Edit

Nomads are preferable to harpies because they have much higher hit points, damage, and movement. But harpies may be preferred over nomads because nomads' weekly growth is lower than harpies (6 and 8, respectively ), so it's easier to create a large army of harpies than nomads.

Harpies have better defense, but they also have lower hit points than nomads. Harpies also have "strike and return" and "no retaliation" abilities, which when combined are better than the nomads' "First Strike" ability.

Abilities Edit

First Strike allows this creature to strike an opponent in melee combat before it can retaliate.
