Active Ability | Soul Bond[edit | edit source]

The Warped Stoneguard singles out an enemy anywhere on the battlefield and binds itself to the target for a round,
dealing damage to willpower equivalent to the stat's difference between the Scourge and the target. (9 Willpower.png Scourge targets 5 Willpower.png Hero; hero has 1 Willpower.png left.)
During bondage, all Strength.png damage the Scourge takes will hurt the target instead, ignoring armor.

Passive Ability | Depraved[edit | edit source]

The Warped Dredge explodes upon death and disappears. The explosion causes one Willpower.png damage to all adjacent enemies and leaves a surface of burned purple ashes equal to the unit's size, that does 1 Willpower.png damage to any unit walking over it.


Tips & Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Soul Bond can severely damage the Willpower of your Heroes, especially in low Morale situations, restricting them from using abilities or performing exerted actions.
  • The damage-transfer of Soul Bond can easily kill your Heroes, so make sure you only do Break attacks on the Warped Stoneguard when it has bonded a target.
