Re: The Book of Air Elemental

This is an aside and not relevant to anything, so ignore me. I play armies often on cool-looking factor, and Air Elemental just looks dumb. I was actually pretty upset when one time I had to usr to fill my point total.

But! It's a game! Relax! I tell myself.

rolls one less defense die against figures who like him.

Re: The Book of Air Elemental

One of my brothers picks his figures based on "coolness factor". He loses more games that way . . .


I have a question on Swirling Vortex that I didn't see asked/answered in the thread.

SWIRLING VORTEX
When an opponent’s small or medium figure moves into a space within 2 clear sight spaces of an Air Elemental you control, that figure must end its move there. Figures can never move through any figure affected by Swirling Vortex.


It says figures can never move through any figure affected by Swirling Vortex. Does this count for ALL figures, or only ones which would affected by Swirling Vortex?

For example let's say you have a Grut stopped by Swirling Vortex. A second Grut of yours cannot pass over him because it too would have to stop. But what about a figure like Krug? He is not affected by Swirling Vortex and so wouldn't have to stop because of it.

Can large and huge (non-flying) figures pass over/through small and medium figures affected by Swirling Vortex?

Re: The Book of Air Elemental

Do what the card says, not what it doesn't. Figures can never move through any figure affected by Swirling Vortex. Period.

Re: The Book of Air Elemental

I have a question. The special ability of swirling vortex it stops you from moving the first time you encounter it. But let's say I have a figure at 2 spaces for the air elemental if I use it this turn can I move it or is the figure stuck until you destroy de air elemental?

The figure can move again on it's next turn, or during it's next movement if it has a special power that would let it move out of turn or something.

Example:
I have a Granite Guardian move to a space that is two spaces away from your Air Elemental. After taking the attack phase of my turn, I then use "Gain High Ground" to move my Granite Guardian another space, this time to make him adjacent to the Air Elemental.

Hope this helps and welcome to the site!

Horrible that they do not have the clause "Figures with flying are not affected by swirling vortex."

I don't get it. Why wouldn't they be affected too?

Re: The Book of Air Elemental

That seems...odd. I always assumed that they were specifically for messing with flyers. Considering they reduce their defense. Plus it just made sense that a strong air vortex would mess with something flying.

Read the FAQ.
I’d like to know the source of those answers in the OP...cause I don’t agree. I stand by the General rule of “do what the card says and not what it doesn’t say”. I think it’s pretty clear that any small or medium figure must stop within 2 spaces. Period.
