Recently I had quick battle - Orcs (me) vs Chaos. My Lord was Orc Warboss on the Wyvern. My opponent had Exalted Hero on the Manticore. Exalted hero had all his abilities and no items. My warboss had all abilities and potions of healing and foolhardiness. That was the only air units.
When I saw his hero - I thought "Easy win for me". To my surprise, armor-piercing warboss with potions lost to exalted hero. And exalted hero isn't even armor-piercing. I tested afterwards 1 on 1 with this units. And yeah, exalted hero emerges victorious in this situation. The only stats which is better on exalted hero is +10 attack and +10 armor.
I don't think that +10 attack is that much of a deal. Especially when exalted hero don't have much armor-piercing. So - what am I missing here? Some hidden stats? Or +10 attack is really important here?
