first maybe?

Gruz is interesting, but I think there are better options for the long game strategy. If he boosted off of bleed stacks or curse, I think it would be better. Heck, a chance to auto kill based on bleed stacks could be cool. I like the look and idea, but I think it could use a better execution.

That’s a sad 3rd trait

I think it would have been awesome if it just completely refilled anytime anyone died.

Bye-bye, spider-spam and JoE…

I can’t believe this is still a thing. When has it EVER been 3 weeks? NEVER! It’s always 4 weeks.

Spent around 250 Event Keys to pull a Gruz. There goes my stash :pensive:.

I’m drawing a blank on what JoE could mean.

We really need a thread or page that dedicates to GoW abbreviations (even the game title is abbreviated!) :sweat_smile:

7 Magnuses
4 Psions
1 Possessed King

All before pulling a single Gruz.

A glorious taste of the future to come. :tired_face:

We all burning thru keys and the legendary is (imo) designed to be a weak troop.

150 event keys for 1 copy here. Anyone got him in their first 50 or so?

I got 1 in both 50-key shots at TPK I took, so I now have 2 Gruz’s I didn’t really want XD.

And I also got a Psion and a Magnus.

Not bad. :ok_hand:

You think so?

My hopes that they would buff Gruz, a cool-looking troop (well, except for that inflated scythe), before release are dashed. (I was hoping for at least splash damage, or inflicting the curse+bleed on all enemies,.) With that third trait, it seems intended to be a turn-ender, particularly on skull-looping teams.

But a spell that has no board control, real damage, or enemy debuffs doesn’t seem to have any spot in the meta. Aimable curse is interesting, but won’t help you against the powerful stealthy troops out there dominating the game. Gruz sadly seems like a lesser version of Sledgepaw in many respects.
