The Book of Shurrak

The Book of Shurrak

Warriors of Eberron – Collection D2 – Heroes of Khorvaire


If you cannot see the Army Card graphic, check the HeroScapers Gallery or Hasbro's Unit Page for stats and special powers, plus "character biography" and other non-game unit info.

Character Bio (adapted from home page): Like Jotun before him, Shurrak has the unique ability to make your opponents think twice about whatever strategy they had in their head.

_________________________________________________________________
-Rulings and Clarifications-
Sweeping Sword Special Attack: Who is affected?
Q: Which figures are affected by Shurrak’s Sweeping Sword Special Attack?
A: Besides the figure chosen for the attack, only figures that are adjacent to both Shurrak and that chosen figure are also affected and have to roll defense dice. Figures that are adjacent to only Shurrak or only the chosen figure are not affected.

Knockback 14: Clear path
Q: If I roll successfully for Knockback 14, does there have to be a clear path to the space I want to put the defending figure?
A: Shurrak only has to be able to see the figure (within 3 clear sight spaces) to place it there. Other figures or obstacles do not prevent placement, but remember that the chosen space cannot be a higher level than the defending figure's original space.
_________________________________________________________________
-Combinations and Synergies-

Synergy Benefits Received
ORNAK : Red Flag of Fury
As a Unique Hero that follows Utgar, Shurrak may benefit from Ornak’s RED FLAG OF FURY activation synergy.

Synergy Benefits Offered
Fire Elemental: Searing Intensity:
Because of his LAVA RESISTANT power, Shurrak is one of the few figures not affected by the Fire Elemental’s SEARING INTENSITY.
Terrain Benefits Received
-MOLTEN LAVA and LAVA FIELD: Lava Resistant –Cannot take damage and does not have to stop movement.

Re: The Book of Shurrak

I think Shurracks knockback 14 is one of the most versitatle abilities in the game and I predict stories of captain america dying of extreme height damage because of it.

Re: The Book of Shurrak

As everyone is constantly having to remind me, Ornak's Red Flag of Fury Aura can be added to "Synergy Benefits Received." It seems it is just specific enough to make the cut.

Re: The Book of Shurrak

Yeah, this incarnation of Knockback is great. If you have another heavy hitter or a good squad nearby just knock your victim adjacent or within range for another potential attack. And on a lava map, Surrak should be able to sizzle at least one hero per match.

Re: The Book of Shurrak

1. Buy a few thousand dollars worth of 'scape.

2. Build Dr. Weirdscaper's Tactical mobile fortress

3. Put Shurrak on top.

4. Have him push someone off the edge.

5. Laugh.


OR....


1. army = Shurrak, x3 ice elementals.

2. Build epic ice map.

3. Put ice elementals in a circle (on ice).

4. Push someone into the circle.

5. x3 Ice Spikes. No escape.

Tournament record 3-0

Re: The Book of Shurrak

ProTip - When attacking with Shurrak, back that bad boy up in reverse! He doesn't need Line of Sight to hit adjacent figures, so by facing him the opposite direction, you can hit an adjacent figure and fling them into spaces *behind* Shurrak (and into engagement with your own troops)!

Re: The Book of Shurrak

People talk about knocking other figures off of cliffs, but do people really build hills that high on their maps? On most maps I play and on BOV maps the highest points are usually maybe like 4 hexes high or so and not like 15 spaces high...

Knocking a figure into lava is much more viable and I can imagine it being somewhat common if the conditions are right (as in, Shurrak on a map with Molten Lava around). Not to mention it is easier to see a figure that has fallen into lava as opposed to one that has fallen off a cliff.

Re: The Book of Shurrak

Played with Shurrak a number of times using his sweeping sword wrong, depending on your inflection it can sound like it effects everyone adjacent to shurrak and adjacent to the target, got kinda scary lol. He is great for lava maps, but here's a question...Can you chuck thrown figures next to Nakita Agents and have Engagement Strike go off? And if there's a Nakita agent already adjacent to the figure can the figure be moved 0 spaces and activate Engagement Strike?

I would think yes for the first
and no to the second because your in theory still engaged.

Yes to Engagement strike/Ice Spikes.
No, because they are already engaged.

If you are just looking to get into Scape, I have plenty of terrain to get you started!

Re: The Book of Shurrak

Perhaps he would be a great anti-rat screen? Seeing as ratpodges were quite popular this year at Gencon as well as Q9 I'm thinking Shurrak wouldn't be too bad a choice.
