Sounds like a text error to me.
The Heroes' Forge will produce Orcs every 24 hours, and will give a strength boost to all Heavy Melee Units in Battle
So also enemy Heavy Melee Units?
It's the same exact wording as the bonus on the Needles of the Tempest, just applied to different units.I don't have much faith in seemingly innocuous text errors. The Rally Point text error, for example, has become anything but innocuous.
I would buy Magic Workshops and replace all mine immediately, if they'd accept Spells. Please pass this along - there are lots of live world users who still rely on the declinable quests (in order to help minimize the number of Workshops required)....and it's getting tiresome enough that a Magic Workshop in combination with Spells would be very appealing. MWshop without Spells still yields less than using the Quest...Not sure if this is intended or not, so i will have to check this first.
