Giant Roc Died a Hero!

in Splinterlands5 months ago

Every week, @splinterlands posts a challenge for players to post about their battle, using a specific card or splinter. This week’s challenge, is to use Giant Roc!


Armor is prohibited 🚫🛡and the slowest monsters attack first 🐌

Here is my battle:

So, here was the team I put together:

Since, Giant Roc is a Fire Monster, I began by choosing my 🔥 summoner. I picked, Malric Inferno- a powerful Fire Summoner which boosts the attack of each friendly melee monster.

Malric is a unique curiosity in the already diverse Burning Lands. He is a spectre of fire with powerful attacks of his own, but he is also extraordinarily brilliant. Malric has graduated from every Ferexia school, including the prestigious Summun Infuria. He is especially skilled in boosting the attack power of his monsters.

Since, Malric is my team summoner, I like to focus on melee monsters, to get the boost!

My Monster Lineup

In my tank position, I picked Living Lava. I usually don't pick this card because it is so slow, but in this situation, Living Lava is "fast!" I like the shield ability which reduces damage from Melee and Ranged attacks.

Giant Roc followed. The stats are decent and it's the star of the show! It's reach ability allowed it to attack from this position and the flying ability helped evade attacks!

I then chose, Caladuum for his awesome stats. The car is generally slow but the rule set say differently! The void ability reduces damage from Magic attacks. Caladuum was a no-brainer...

Kobold Miner was chosen to be in the fourth position. This card has OK stats, but I like him for it’s sneak ability! Monsters with the sneak ability target the last Monster on the enemy Team instead of the first Monster.

Parasitic Growth was fifth. His low mana and awesome stats, made him the perfect choice! This card has the opportunity ability! Monsters with the Opportunity ability may attack from any position and will target the enemy Monster with the lowest health.

Cyclops, anchored the team. I chose this card mainly for the decent range attack and slow speed. I was hoping this card would quickly inflict some nice damage on the enemy. The shield ability Reduced damage from Melee and Ranged attacks.

My battle went 4 rounds, and I was left with only 2 monsters. It was close! I was very happy with the team I assembled, and was very pleased with my victory ✌🏽

Nice line up of monsters.

The Giant Roc was the very first Splinterland card that I owned.
