Minion Bog Trog Solo

While rarely the actual leaders of their tribes, mist speakers are the spiritual advisors and counselors to the chieftains who command the bog trogs. These cunning viziers are adept at deception and misdirection. Mist speakers communicate with the spirits of the swamp, who direct them in all things and give them insight beyond the understanding of their tribal brothers. In battle, mist speakers support the tribe by wielding powerful magic that calls upon the forces of the bog trogs’ swampy homes.

Thoughts on Bog Trog Mist Speaker[edit]

Bog Trog Mist Speaker in a nutshell[edit]

The Bog Trog Mist Speaker is a support model through and through, with a useful if situational offensive spell, Guidance, which can make your shooting about a thousand times more effective or do nothing at all, and a small cloud that also gives the Mist Speaker stealth. Veteran Leader is probably their most common use in league play - but the Mist Speaker is useful in tournaments to just about any major Hordes faction thanks to the Wraith Engine imposing a magical weapon gear check in addition to the rest of the Ghost Fleet shenanigans.

Combos & Synergies[edit]

Drawbacks & Downsides[edit]
