|There are just some things in life that
are so important, everybody should have them. A place
to live, food to eat, and clothes to wear. This is how
I feel about Warrax. Everybody should have him in their
army each and every game. And judging by the number of
messages I have received regarding Warrax, I would say
most other MoM players feel this way too!
What is it about Warrax that made me grant him
4 & 1/2 stars? What is it that makes me grin from ear to
ear each time I manage to summon him? Is it the fact
that he has Armor Piercing on both his magical and melee
attacks? Could it be the fact that his magical ranged
attacks are backed by Arcane Power and do an amazing
amount of damage? Is it his Constitution which grants
him more hit points? Or is it the fact that he has
enough spell skill to take out an entire army all
Well, thats a start. However, what really makes Warrax
such an amazing hero is the three random picks
he gets to add to his already impressive list of attributes.
And he gets to pick them from any category! Wow!
If he is already this tough, what should you be looking for?
Super Arcane Power
Since it only takes 1 pick, pray to get Super Arcane Power.
Due to his Armor Piercing skill, Warrax has the potential
to have the most devastating magical ranged attacks of
any hero in Master of Magic©. Yes, even more than
Aerie The Illusionist since a
lot of monsters have immunity to her illusionary attacks.
If you manage to get Warrax with the Blade Master skill,
you must have done something right in a past life.
Once again, Warrax has the potential to be the strongest
magical attack fighter in the game, but it will require
Blade Master to ensure it. You need to make sure his
Armor Piercing attacks are accurate and inflict
Those are the two highest priorities on my list of random picks.
The following would be secondary:
Warrax will be one of those heroes who mixes it up with the
bad boys, therefore he will need a little more defense.
I wouldn't say that increasing his defense is as important
as increasing his magical attack strength and accuracy,
but it would be highly beneficial. Keep in mind that unlike
most other magical attack heroes, Warrax is capable
of wearing armor. Therefore, you can also create a +8
defense plate mail for him to wear.
Since Warrax's Armor Piercing attacks apply to both his magical
ranged attacks and his melee attacks, why not take
advantage of this? With might, he would have enough melee
attack strength that you could give him a +6 attack staff (which
only increases his ranged attacks), and still be able to
kill units in melee combat! What a bad-ass!
As a final note, Warrax is definitely an offensive fighter.
In fact, he is so offensive that I often use him as a solo
fighter to take out entire armies and cities! Rarely
do enemy units every get close enough to him to make
him defensive, so I wouldn't worry too much about that.
He's not good enough to take out a Sky Drake, but he is
powerful enough to damage them a little bit with his
magical ranged attacks. Sky Drakes are immune to magic and
Warrax can still hurt them! Wow! So be sure to give
Warrax some company before entering a node filled with
