Cheap Troll Hero Rush (ROTWK)

By Catabre.

The most effective way to supplement your rush as an evil nation if you are playing BFME2+RotWK is to make a troll hero with no powers. It sounds stupid, but as you can see the Positives far outweigh the negatives.

Advantages:

  • He can easily win games for you by destroying an opponet's military quickly and cheaply.
  • Opponent never sees it coming. (usually)
  • Great for creeping.
  • Hard to kill.
  • Summons quickly the first time.
  • He has area attack and high base attack so he'll level up quickly. Hits level 10 after a few minutes of fighting.
  • If your hero does die you can repurchase him at your fortress for under 500 resources.
  • Decent heal rate, so if he gets severely wounded you can pull him back and he will quickly recuperate.
  • Disadvantages:

  • Vulnerable to a lot of archers if he can't reach and kill them.
  • Not very strong against buildings.
  • Low Heal Rate.
  • No powers.
  • Ready to get started? Well there are three types of trolls. The best option is the Hill Troll. This is why:

    The Great Troll with health filled out and then the rest of the points put into armorr has 12 Armor, 13 Power, 13 Health, 2 Heal Rate and 7 Vision.

    The Snow Troll with health Filled out and then the rest of the points put into armor has 14 Armor, 10 Power, 13 Health, 4 Heal Rate and 5 Vision.

    The Hill Troll with health filled out and then the rest of the points put into armor has 15 Armor, 13 Power, 15 Health, 2 Heal Rate and 5 Vision.

    As you can gather from the data, the Hill Troll is best suited for our purposes.

    Steps for Creating:

  • First fill up his Health bar with your points.
  • Put the rest of your points on his Armor.
  • Trolls have high base power so you don't have to worry about him not killing units.
  • Give him no powers.*
  • *If you don't mind raising the cost from 500 to 600 you can make your troll even more effective by purchasing Untamed Alliegance. I only recommend using Untamed Alliegance on on maps with Fire Drake and Troll lairs, however.
