"Ghosts are restless spirits of the dead, forever bound to the Necromancer who has enslaved them. Their bodies are incorporeal, which make them difficult to hit." — In-game description
Ghosts are an undead unit associated with Necropolises, serving as a third-tier unit in the video game Heroes of Might and Magic V. Becoming recruitable after building their creature dwelling, the Ruined Tower, they can later be upgraded into Spectres or if the player has access to the Tribes of the East expansion set, alternatively they can be upgraded into Poltergeists.
The ghost is the third-tier creature of the Necropolis in Heroes of Might and Magic V. It upgrades into the spectre, though in the Tribes of the East expansion it may alternatively upgrade into the poltergeist.
As with earlier incarnations, they have Undead status, which causes their morale to always be neutral, and in this game makes them unaffected by Poison-, Blind-, or Mind-related magical spells. They have also been made Incorporeal, which makes any non-magical attack made against them only have a 50% chance of actually inflicting damage. They still remain flyers, and can therefore move to any free tile on the battle screen during their turn, regardless of any obstacles along the path.
Unlike previous incarnations, Ghosts are no longer able to be located in Shipwrecks.
