Tips and TricksEdit

Jigou fills the role of a tank tanking against big foes and sometimes dealing with them on his own. And Jigou can also fit in the role of a crowd controller, stunning and freezing large groups of smaller enemies.

Strengths Edit

  • Jigou has the claim to fame of being unrivaled for sheer HP - at level 10, he has more base health than any other hero in the series, beating Malik Hammerfury´s previous record of 720. Grawl, however, beats both of them at 900 HP with his Hard Rock upgrade.
  • At level 10, Jigou heals 6 hp per 0.2 seconds. Jigou can also use his Glacial form to gain invincibility for 9 seconds while regenerating his HP.
  • Frozen breath and Earth slam are great crowd controlling abilities. Earth slam not only stuns enemies for 5 seconds, but it also does 220 damage when maxed out. Frozen breath has a larger AoE but does no damage. Both abilities affect both ground and flying enemies.
  • Ice ball will help against the majority of ranged enemies, thanks to its long range and high physical damage.

Weaknesses Edit

  • Jigou is the slowest hero in Kingdom Rush: Vengeance, meaning he is not able to support multiple choke points.
  • Even though Jigou attacks strongly he also attacks slow, lowering his overall dps against enemies.

Additional tips Edit

  • Use Jigou at your choke points so your towers are able to take out enemies while they’re frozen or stunned.
  • Using Jigou in a lane where your towers are weaker will help against a majority of enemies.
  • Jigou can tank fairly well against bosses like Bolgur and Gerald Lightseeker thanks to his glacial form and passive regeneration.
  • Using magic towers as support for Jigou will help cover both weaknesses: Magic resistant enemies and enemies with armor. While Jigou's Ice ball will deal with the magic resistance, the magic towers will take care of the enemies with high levels of armor
