Now is the time of the beast!

New Troop: Warg

While Kerberos may guard the Abyssal Gates, the Wargs are his servants, sent out to gather the Souls that feed their master.
Beware, because now Kerberos can summon Wargs too!

New Troop: Wayfinder

The most subtle and sly of the Wargare scouts are known as the Wayfinders.
In battle, they will harass the enemy from behind with hit and run tactics.
They are also excellent trackers, silent and stealthy; few creatures ever escape them.

New Legendary Troop: Forest Guardian

The Forest Guardian is an ancient ancestral spirit, inhabiting Maugrim Woods.
Ancient tales of the Wargare refer to the guardian as the companion of Wulfgarok, the First Wargare, progenitor of his race. It is said that together they tamed the woods, slaying the ancient Black Dragon Elemaugrim who had ruled the woods for many centuries.
It is also said that if anyone invades the woods, the Forest Guardian will rally the beasts and the Wargare, and perhaps even its ancient master Wulfgarok, to its side, to defend their homeland.

The Forest Guardian will be available only in Event Chests this week, and will be added to Gem, Glory, Guild, and VIP chests in 4 weeks’ time.

Changes to Cockatrice and Kerberos?
#2

Looks really cool! I’ll definitely want to try out Mini-Groot… ;3


#3

Troops refunds, yay! I wonder what is Wargs boost ratio, looks interesting.


#4

Kerberos :kissing_closed_eyes:


#5

Last minute change is always possible, but looks like it will be [3:1] .


#6

srsly? oO I was hoping to see less of those lucky punch mechanics.


#7

Kerberos says nom nom nom!


#8

Just curious wayfinder is amira brother?


#9

I believe he was fighting alongside Sonic the Hedgehog some years ago.


#10

Wayfinder is another female fox.


#11

Sister then :slight_smile:


#12

Anyway, Wayfinder is the troop that i liked most, not only because of the obvious use against Manticore, but she is reliable in more cases too and the theme is very cool. Hunters wearing down bigger and stronger preys to safely slay them.

Also it leaves me wondering if all Wargare Foxes will more than likely have this theme: Some sort of training to be able to slay enemies based on their mana color. Any confirmation on this @Sirrian ? Just for the sake of curiosity about the lore behind the troops. :slight_smile:


#13

That is a lot of changes. O_O


#14

Yeah, I didn’t bother reading them. Figured I’d lazily wait for your video explanation instead. :smiley:


#15
  1. I don’t like the cartoon artwork on Wayfinder one bit
  2. I really like the troop rework in general, great job!
  3. Kerberos Devour up to 50% I just don’t know about that buff, it seems a bit over the top.

#16

Seems changes are already live too


#17

Is the Forest Guardians 3rd Trait right? Just asking as the developer’s seemed to get away from the 50% mana with past mythics and it works on the troop itself…plus a lot of mana generators are beasts.


#18

I thought the same thing. I assumed it was just because I have seen so many anthro foxes though, but Wayfair’s art is really far off in style.


#19

That would be funny if 2 of them could empower an all beast team. xD


#20

2 mythics confirmed Wulfgarok and Black Dragon Elmaugrim
