Tips

  • Stonewalling offers substantial protection as the temporary armor will be shredded first and then regained in future turns.
  • Stonewalling is often used with Vigilance on Warriors as entering guardian does not prevent stonewalling.
  • Be wary of using hills legs, the speed reduction is substantial and can become quite problematic especially if the hero also reaches old age.
