Mint Announcement — Tankers

The Grumpy Giants

The 8th mint installment is arriving, and this time we are showcasing a defensive class like no other: Tankers!
While many dragon classes are excellent defensive units, none embody the role as well as the Tanker class dragons do. This is reflected in their appearance, attitude and abilities. With an air of annoyed superiority, they revel in taking damage, their battle hardened scales merely tickled by normal hits. Indeed, there is a brooding annoyance about them if ignored by their enemies. Some Dragoneers have noted that they only seem happy while under attack. Extremely protective of their allies, they are master buffers, supplying a variety of buffs to their allies and increasing their efficacy.

Much of their uniqueness is embodied in their Prime Stats: Hit Points and Armor. In fact, they are the only dragon class that does not have any of the “offensive” stats (Elemental Power, Physical Power, Spellcasting) as a Prime Stat. While on the whole this tends to make Tankers inefficient damage dealers and debuffers, experienced Dragoneers are not fooled by their seemingly benevolent nature.

Although their damage is primarily elemental and incidental, clever Dragoneers place their Tanker units in a way so they can accumulate Block in peace. When the frustration of inactivity overcomes the unit, it bears down on a target with a terrible strike fuelled by their unused Block, their only form of physical damage. Gentle giants they are not; grumpy giants a more apt description.

PROTECTION SKILL SET
(SHARED WITH GUARDIANS)

Shield — Buff
When this unit is next struck, prevent all damage from the strike.

Victimize — Debuff

- Does not affect Aftershock damage.

Behemoth — Buff
- After this unit is struck it gains Block.
- Block gained is based on the unit’s Armor.

Benevolence — Effect

Raise Morale — Effect
- Increase the duration of all buffs on a target by 1.

Defensive Stance — Buff
- Significantly increases the unit’s Armor.

Battle Hardened Scales — Buff
- Target does not lose its Block at the start of its turn.
A quick word about Armor and Block:
- The Armor stat is used to generate Block.
-- E.g.: Gain Block equal to 50% of Armor.
- Block negates incoming damage.
- Block is temporary, removed from units when they start their turn.

Bear Down — Effect
- Bear Down deals damage based on the unit’s current Block.
- Doing so consumes the Block.
Left alone for too long, Tankers will convert all their Block into a massive physical hit.
