Starting strategy[edit | edit source]
Starting straight into hunters can be hard since their first class bonus is rather weak, instead you can start with a mix with another class. For example:
- Druids into Hunters: You can get many level 2 Druids early game with the Druids(2) bonus. Later add hunters that combo with Elf. The Druids can stay as front liners for the rest of the game, as you can easily get many level 3 Druids with the Druids(4) bonus without compromising your hunters.
- Warriors into Hunters: You can get 2 Orcs/Warriors and another Warrior for the Orcs(2)-Warrior(3) bonuses early. Later add hunters that combo with Orc. The Warriors can stay as front liners for the rest of the game, but you may want to replace them late game as they fall off without the Warrior(6) or Warrior(9) bonuses.
Combination strategy[edit | edit source]
Common combinations with hunters include:
Best Defence is Offence[edit | edit source]
6 Hunters have a unique playstyle: you don't care for life steal .. armor and sustain!
Shoot first, ask questions later.
4 high dps ranged heroes can easily kill any front line caster and break enemy formation.
In some situation it is viable to focus just on damage synergies: Hunter / Beast / Undead and fully ignore defence: Orc/Warrior/Goblin/Mech/Warlock/
