Thanks to this being, no menace should create fear in You. His strength and abilities stand up to Your opponents power with ease. I won’t hide the fact that he’s created mainly for battle since when he participates in building the cities, You can’t count on him too much.
The main objective Your creature should have while being good is helping in city duties. Thanks to his abilities (roles) as a builder, gatherer, or entertainer, You’ll be able to make a friendly pet. Choosing a certain role makes him do only that ability, that’s why once You pick a role, You should place him in a certain area. For example, once You place a couple of foundations and You want Your creature to help the peasants build, choose the builder role and tie him to one of the nearby buildings (a border will show up around him, in which he’ll complete the chosen duty).
You can also let him do what he wants to do by choosing the ‘free will’ role. By observing him and by properly reacting to what he’s doing (and he really has a wide array of actions), punish him or reward him. By doing this, You allow or forbid him from doing certain activities. This is how You create his character.
The most useful role that I advise to expand (by buying the next level in the tools bar, in the tribute section) is gathering. Thanks to this You increase the growth of Your stock, which later on You can easily use for building purposes (if Your creature builds, it takes a long time and it’s not as effective). Also, You can make him bring raw materials from areas where Your influence line doesn’t reach.
If You wish for his personality to become evil (in a moral sense), use the soldier role to the maximum. His strength is so huge, that in some missions he defeats enemy armies by himself. Your priority should be using Your tribute to level up this role, since its extremely important.
His strenght can also be increased by buying him miracles. The miracles destroy big armies with ease. The most useful is probably the fire miracle, thanks to which Your creature can kill from longer distances (eluding damage) archers, which dont even react to him. He can also throw the fire miracle over enemy walls to kill troops stationed there and to damage buildings. The heal miracle is also extremely useful. He uses it once his hit points are low and also on Your units.
The creature is ideal for a defensive wall, ofcourse not to the letter. If Your city is placed in an area where only one road leads to it, You should place Your creature there (by tying him down with the soldier leash) and he’ll eliminate all foes coming by.
Black and White 2 Video Game
genre: Real-Time Strategy
developer: Lionhead Studios
publisher: Electronic Arts
platform: PC CD/DVD
rated: T - Teen
Will you be an evil or benevolent deity? That's the choice players must make upon returning to a warring land in Black & White 2. Like its wildly successful predecessor, Black & White, the sequel is all about moral choices.
The land, however, has transformed itself. The inhabitants of this breathtaking 3D world have lost their innocence. They're technically savvy and they believe in one god. They are also looking for converts from other tribes.
As players enter this warring world will they make tribes coexist peacefully, encouraging villages and towns to grow into metropolises, or prompt them to inflict their will upon others by creating and commanding large armies that seek to dominate and conquer?
Creatures in the game have grown too. They can learn strategies, master new abilities and skills, lead armies into battle and be a player's ultimate unit.
The world is more highly developed now with new weapons and technology. Every choice a player makes will have an impact. Each action and inaction prompts obvious changes to buildings, flora and/or fauna all morphing to reflect the player's personality.
Black & White 2 includes other new elements, such as improved graphics and Miracle effects such as rivers of fire and earthquakes that yield mass destruction. The game also includes weather systems that impact gameplay; players will see the impact of a drought that scorches the arid plains of Egypt or the effect of a heavy snowfall on the Norse Mountains. Players can also tap new resources and disciples by creating ties with the Japanese or dueling the Aztecs. Players will also have the ability to construct new buildings including armories and a harbor, and explore new islands each with their own culture and climate.
- Ability to wage war or secure peace New Epic Miracles including Earthquake, which rips the world apart, and volcanoes, which rise out of the ground creating rivers of lava.
- The game environment changes based on the player's personality.
- Multiple trainable creatures including the Ape, Cow, & Lion; and the five tribes Of Aztec, Greek, Egyptian, Japanese and Norse.
- Weapons and technology that players can create including archers, swordsmen, siege weapons and walls which the player can paint down in any design they wish. Controllable armies
- Ability to create settlements that as well as including housing, crops, and impressive buildings, also includes structures based on your alignment, like fountains and beautiful gardens if you're Good, or stocks and guillotines if you are Evil.
- Multiple tools with which players can teach creatures new tricks, including: sticks, whips, feathers or tools the player creates.
- Weather systems such as: rain, snow, mists and fog.
- Journey through 10 lands homing each of the 5 tribes.

Always choose a lion. He has never failed on me before, and he kicks ass when it comes to dishing out pain. Cows are only good in attack when they get REALLY big and REALLY evil. The wolf looks cool evil, but he dies WAY too often. The ape is O.K, but he isn't good at any specific thing (like being good, evil, a warrior, a kind creature. Even in BOTG, the turtle can do nearly no damage, and the lion is like a weak version of the lion, although he looks 10 times cooler. Overall, I would say that the lion is the best, easiest to play, and the most powerful creature of the lot.

Thanks for the guide. Gate420 if you choose the Monkey / Ape you should start with it if you start with the Lion (to the best of my knowlege) you will have the Lion till the end.this post has been modified by its author [2011-05-14 16:50:52]

I am wondering if there is a problem with my game or not.
I choose the monkey but so far the creature I have has been the lion so I am wondering when I am supposed to have the creature I choose or do you have the lion for the first few training levels or what.
So if anyone can tell me what should happen I would appreciate it.

I picked the lion and the wolf, the cow and ape didn't really appeal to me.
My lion 100% good
My Wolfie 100% evilage
Great Walkthrough by way.
omfghellwtf 14/01/2009 22:56
actually ive found out the true stats of the creatures:
lion=tank and strongest soldier,at both alighnments this stat type wont change severely
wolf=fastest and medium soldier,dishes out quick and moderate damage a good all rounder
cow=not much of a fighter even when evil, as it doesnt rival the strengh of a loin,wolf, or tiger at max muscle, more of a social suave and uber disciple
ape=the mage out of the 6, not phsically strong and low defence, it makes up for using the miracles most often and increases effectiveness if using a wonder
tiger=sadly, just a retextured lion same stats
armor plated turtle=has unrivalled defence of 600% more of that against an ape,230% against a cow,180% against a wolf, and 20% against a tiger or lion,high defence but feeble atk power
in other cases there is no winner, all are purely good at one thing, but weak at others and as for the good evil part, make your creature nice to your villagers, defeat enemy units, make a impressive town via big army= you win in every way

the_oldest_lion 03/01/2009 09:54
i used the code which makes your creature inemortal i am notsure if it is right he can't die and he is 179 years old
every 1 second he becomes 1 year he is older one year but now when i start new game i can't play because the influence ring isn't in my town
it is at the other part of the island and i can't continue because it stacks.
i will try to delete them all(the saves) and start again

Great guide thanks loads.
Oh and you doesn't need a capital..
Kanu 19/04/2007 22:07
corlano, I had the same problem and I upgraded to a nVidia GeForce 6200 and have solved the problem. I dont think that the card you have has the correct shader for the game.

bandit 16/03/2007 19:51

Obnixe 27/02/2007 03:18
I'm a little disappointed about the maximum size of the creatures. It seems like they're portrayed much larger according to the B&W2 pictures and screen shots! Oh well maybe in B&W3?
-Take care all

Peachy ---> You can also unlock the Tiger, but he is just as lazy as the cow. You constantly have to use the leash on him.
To unlock Tiger, download trainer program, run program, thats it.
To make your gorilla look like gorilla and avoid the hairless boney arms. You have to feed him, alot! He gets fatter and starts to look more like a gorilla. And he makes crazy noises.
