New Troop: Bone Naga

<http://gemsofwar.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/blog_bonenaga.png" rel=“attachment wp-att-10822”>

Many centuries ago, a special Naga child was hatched. She was half snake, half humanoid, like her mother, but she had the most wondrous set of wings. It was widely believed, though never confirmed, that the father was Undine, God of the Sea.

Her mother named her Euryali, and as she grew, it soon became apparent that she had an aptitude for magic far beyond most of her people. Sadly (though this is a story for another time), Euryali was feared by the Naga Queens, and was exiled from her home. She travelled deep into the Mists, into the places even the Naga fear to slither, and there she learned many secrets including the dark powers of necromancy.

When Euryali returned, it was with a host of Undead Naga at her back. A fierce battle raged for many years, and although Euryali was defeated, her body was never found. The Bone Naga however, still persist deep within the swamps, and are just another reason the Naga still refuse to travel into the Heart of the Mists to this very day.

Would it be too high if it was simply put to 100 and not another RNG festival for no reason?

Respectfully, no he won’t.

Thanks for posting @Sirrian Undead Naga troop looks fun. Any chance the Bonus multiplier is 5x or 6x? :smiley:

Why the nerf for Courage? Was Courage that overpowered in the current meta-game?

I agree, justice is more a problem

Great idea, same spell type as Mercy, only that she transform yellow to purple. :laughing:

Wouldn’t a Bone Mercy transform purples to skulls and poison the weakest enemy?

That would’ve been an awesome trait. And looking forward to finding out the boost ratio, hopefully it’s decent. Looks fun.

@Saltypatra

Sirrian does such a creative job with the back story of these troops its a shame it can’t be incorporated into the game somewhere for players to read considering maybe only 1% of the players use this forum.

Some sort of in-game encyclopaedia?
