  3. Re: Temples don't show up on the battle map!

    I haven't besieged Alexandria yet, but I've been told by Rhaymo that it actually looks like an Eastern large city on the battle map. Indeed, I hope someone in the near future addresses this issue....

    Lol. I've seen a bear eat a pumpkin in one video. So yes, they are omnivores, to their convenience and benefit, since meat isn't always easy to come by in the wild.
