Circle Heavy Warbeast

Warpwolves are humans that have been transformed into savage beasts well suited for battle. The druids of the Circle Orboros use the vicious feral warpwolves to strike their enemies hard and fast, unleashing them to sow death and discord with tooth and claw. Contrastingly, the white-furred purebloods cut swathes through the enemies of Orboros with measured ferocity and bone-shattering howls. Retaining some portion of their human intellects, the sword-wielding stalkers are stealthy killers that prowl behind enemy lines and strike without warning.

Analysis of Warpwolf Stalker[edit]

Warpwolf Stalker in a nutshell[edit]

The Warpwolf Stalker is a powerful and flexible warbeast and considered iconic to the Circle. The combination of its sword and Warp Strength let it hit hard. The combination of its long sword and Berserk let it thresh infantry. And its speed and Pathfinder lets it reach the enemy to kill them. It's very simple, very effective, and should possibly be any Circle player's first purchase after the battle box.

Combos & Synergies[edit]

Drawbacks and Downsides[edit]

  • As heavies go, it's squishy.
  • As with the other Warpwolves, it's high defense can be overcome with any sort of knockdown mechanic.

Tricks and Tactics[edit]

Other[edit]

Changes from Mk II[edit]

In Mk2 it was the best Circle heavy by a long margin. Lightning Strike is now self only. The rest of the heavies got buffed, so it's now probably the best of the Warp Wolves but each one has a role to play.
