View Full Version : How do you micro with Swordwrath?

I heard of microing with an Archidon, but not with a melee character...

So, how do you do it?

Meh not a lot. :P

If it's about to die, garrison it and make sure to keep an eye on it so you can take it back out.

Yeah, not much.

Place them behind your speartons, who will tank damage from the enemy.
Use rage at optimal times to inflict a bunch of damage.
Use them as cannon fodder for giants/castle archers in late game.
Keep them away from castle archers in early game. That splash damage is evil.

Micro for Swordwrath and other melee units(my opinion)
Get the low health melee unit behind the others to prevent being killed.
Garrison while very low in health.
Always keep in mind to spacebar and select a unit to attack.
Estimate how much damage will they give and how much health enough to let them back to garrison while you are attacking their miners.

Against some units swordwrath can dodge attacks lol

01-26-2013, 08:23 PM
Wait really? Can they dodge archer attacks?

01-26-2013, 08:39 PM
Oops sorry, I meant melee attacks :/

Very true. Archidons are hawk-eye that can't miss. And Archidon is Fr0st's favourite.

*wink* check out the thread about archidon massing (forgot which thread it was)

how odd, archidons and swordwrath are my newest strategy.

i finally made a strategy (I DID NOT CHEAT BY LOOKING UP THINGS FROM YOUTUBE OR LOOK AT PEOPLES POSTS) that does not include a single giant (excluding ghost giant).

also ive noticed something with archidon, it sometimes misses the albowtross and i end up losing 5 archidons when i really should of only lost 1, so i guess this is either a glitch or the archidon is nowhere near hawk-eye

i destroyed a couple people using the archidon and swordwrath tactic but it seems to fail against magikill masters and shadowrath masters

Swordwraths ROCK :D
just make sure to keep them alive
they can deal huge damage on RAGE

indeed never underestimate a swordwrath with rage

01-27-2013, 01:10 AM
way to beat 40 swords and 20 archers:80 swords lol!

01-27-2013, 07:06 AM
^have my 40 swords at base while I kite the sh*t outa you

Spawns Magikill
Casts Explosion - All Swordwraith die
Casts Electric Wall - All Archidons die

01-27-2013, 12:22 PM
I think you got it the other way around^

01-27-2013, 12:26 PM
no, use poison spray.
They're all dead, even if all of your units are XD
But it would be better if magikill's poison were stronger....

01-27-2013, 01:04 PM
They should increase poisons damage against giants...

01-28-2013, 04:45 AM
Poison is fine right now on giants, because once you've weakened them, if they try to garrison they'll die on the way there. Hopefully sooner in case they make a Meric with cure.
