Fair enough, I was assuming the Purple was signifying the undead (since things like Skeleton and Zombie use it) and the magic needed to raise them. Brown I’ve always associated with the earth, though I can see how some undead could use it (since they are raised from the dead who are buried in the earth.
Blue I see more as Shield and Armour themed (look at the knights, and especially the most recent Winter Knight (though granted he has blue for other reasons as well))
Yeah, a Daemon slayer could be purple (most rogue-types in game are purple) or green for stealth, or both (like Tyri). We also have a yellow/green archer and a yellow/purple one, so yellow could also fit.
Oh I agree that the base theme for it is water. This shows up in almost all of Glacial Peaks troops, and in troops like Sea Troll. I just see it more often used by Knights (since people still like fielding all knight teams <_<) and I’ve been toying with Winter Knight a bit lately, which might be skewing my perception a bit.
Yeah, actually that reminds me of a noteworthy point I realised last night. Status effects are most useful when you have troops that actually act upon them, and not just apply them. Until Glacial Peaks Frozen was seen as a minor annoyance, but nothing that bad beyond that. But with Glacial Peaks and traits like Shatter and Yeti’s spell it’s starting to become something people are paying attention to. I believe that Disease needs more things using it other than Venbarak using it to bring it into more prominence as a status effect.
All the other effects have spells or traits that act upon them (Other than I think Silence, but it’s a little different since it already blocks the use of a troops spell), on top of their actual effects.
Currently trying to build something interesting from Glacial Peaks (Without legendaries, since I don’t have them) that uses Frozen as more than just a blocking effect.
My main point is we should remember that status effects are a thing, and could work quite nicely in a legendary troop’s arsenal. (Though a lot of the legendaries do that already…), especially if it acts on the status effect rather than applies it.
