Special Attacks never recieve any bonuses to their attack value or range. However other effects may still come into play.

Specifically, Attack Value is the number in the box next to the word "Attack".

Re: The Book of Othkurik the Black Dragon

Here's a handy trick I use if I'm ever wondering whether or not a special attack can be modified. I just say these words aloud:

Special Attacks can never be modified in any way

and the problem goes away!

Re: The Book of Othkurik the Black Dragon

What about using Othkurik with Mika the shadow assassin and some Greenscales for bonding. You could drop a shadow from Mika and then get some more use from it with Othkurik's lurking attack. Sounds powerful to me. I'll play test this today.

That's a sound strategy. Its especially effective in a map with lots of shadows already because both of those characters thrive on that. But the ability to place shadow tiles makes it more flexible. With the right placement you could attack anywhere on the map with a boosted Othkuirk.

Re: The Book of Othkurik the Black Dragon

I was thinking the same a few days ago and came up with:
Othkurik 140
Raelin 220
GSW x3 400
Mika 510

Tons of options for Mika here-she can drop a tile to perch Raelin to protect the swarming GSW, throw one down for Othkurik to ambush some chumps, or use them herself to get around. Othkurik has a decent special attack for rats, a Mika-then-Oth/GSW ambush combo can lay down 2 attacks of 7 and 3 attacks of 3 in two turns to take down bad boys like Krug or Q9 (Damage of those attacks on 7 defense is 3.65-one more attack from Oth or Mika would kill him; this is average)

What I find difficult with Othkurik is that his initial ambush really needs to be effective, otherwise he's SOL-an attack of four is average for a hero and he won't last long with defense 3.

Screen with Greenscales or have Mika go out first and lay shadow on his destination.

Re: The Book of Othkurik the Black Dragon

Screening with Greenscales doesn't work-Othkurik has to engage the figure to maximize lurking ambush. Dropping a tile with Mika might be a good idea though-she just absorbs attacks with 5 defense and whatever life she has while Othkurik Acid Sprays the figure, pouncing once Mika goes down and the hero is weakened.

Just played a game against Mika and Othkurik and allowed that exact tactic happen twice. I definitely should have been more on my game, but if there is a decent screen in place, or even just a melee traffic jam, there is a limited amount you can do to prevent it.

7-Attacks suck.
