RenegadePost"Bring it on!!"

The Renegade Post is a special barracks tower that appears in Shrine of Elynie, the last level of Kingdom Rush: Origins. It trains three Twilight elf warriors that have defected to the player's side.

Description

Believing that the price for Malicia and Mactans' victory is too high or too evil for them, these twilight elves changed sides at the last minute and offer their services to you, showing that not all non-heroic twilight elves are incorrigible. They hold the line with ability damage and ranged attacks like Forest Keepers, but share the Bladesingers' armor and advantage in numbers.

The Renegade Post is never targeted by the Spider Goddess' tower destruction ability.

Strategy

  • The Renegades are average warriors capable of stalling weak to medium tier enemies and dealing a fair amount of damage, but on their own, they quickly fall to the enemies' overwhelming force. They are useful to help defend choke points and support other units and towers. Getting Life Stealer Strike III for them should be a priority as it instantly cures poison attacks and allows them to survive much longer, compensating their extremely low heal rate–5 HP per second.
  • Renegades can deal True Damage with Blade Mail. Being on the front line, the reflected damage can be significant.
  • Although the Renegades have ranged capability, which is further improved by Double Daggers, their ranged damage is not noteworthy, proving ineffective at killing enemies.
