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

Character Bio (from back of box): Erevan channels raw arcane power into mighty spells that scorch the battlefield. Like any good wizard, he puts monsters in their place. Anything that stands in his way is blasted to bits.

Q. FEY STEP: SUBJECT TO ELEVATION?

Re: The Book of Erevan Sunshadow

I believe this man will be more effective against squad units, who normally have lower defense than heros. But regarding his Fey Step ability. it says any empty space within 5 spaces of his current location does height elevation matter? for example, could I fey step to the top of a castle, which i believe is 10 height spaces, in one turn?

Re: The Book of Erevan Sunshadow

This guy is pretty bad. How often are you really going to be able to reliably roll all skulls?
And for 80 points? This guy is darn near undraftable.

Re: The Book of Erevan Sunshadow

This guys is too frail to do much. All of the heros in the set seem to be really frail. They need more beefy guys like Tandros. Giving Erevan 1 or 2 extra defense would help.

Re: The Book of Erevan Sunshadow

It does suck that he is not an Elven Wizard for Ullar, because he can't pick up Ulginesh's bonding, the only reason I would consider taking him. He also can't get the defense bonus fron Kyntel Gwyn nor the last-ditch resort from Acholarch. I think that he will be played with the scenario, but other then that, he will sit in the box with Kumiko unless I decide to play just for fun game.

Re: The Book of Erevan Sunshadow

I hope this guy plays better than how he does on paper. But, the playtesters wouldn't have made an almost useless figure. But Fire Blast seems like it could have potential.

Re: The Book of Erevan Sunshadow

Its really unfortunate. He looks really cool and his powers are interesting. But his stats suck.

Re: The Book of Erevan Sunshadow

Read dok's post in the other thread about this guy. You never should attack with less then 4 dice. He states that the other ones will actually hurt your odds.

Re: The Book of Erevan Sunshadow

Man, this is one guy that I'm really let down by(at least on paper). His stats/specials seem really weak to not have any bonding/synergy going on. If he were an elf wizard it would at least make him more playable with Uglinesh. Unless im totally surprised by how he actually plays (or by a future release making him more viable), he doesn't seem like much use of his points. But having said that, I'm still stoked to get him and the rest of the new set in the mail haha.

Re: The Book of Erevan Sunshadow

As promised, here are the tables of average wounds/kills that Erevan's special inflicts. Each entry in this table averages 50,000 trials and is rounded to the nearest 100th.

In both cases, defense is on top, and Erevan's dice choice on the side.

Average Damage (multi-life heroes)
Code:
      0     1     2     3     4     5     6     7     8     9
2   1.33  1.00  0.74  0.55  0.40  0.29  0.21  0.15  0.10  0.07
3   1.73  1.39  1.10  0.86  0.66  0.51  0.39  0.29  0.22  0.16
4   2.13  1.79  1.51  1.23  0.99  0.78  0.63  0.50  0.39  0.30
Average 1-life figure kills
Code:
      0     1     2     3     4     5     6     7     8     9
2   1.00  0.77  0.59  0.45  0.33  0.24  0.17  0.13  0.09  0.06
3   1.00  0.86  0.71  0.58  0.47  0.37  0.28  0.21  0.17  0.13
4   1.00  0.91  0.81  0.70  0.59  0.49  0.41  0.33  0.27  0.21
Moral of the story - roll 4 dice.
