|“||Bring it on!||”|
Description[edit | edit source]
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 the player, 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.
Abilities[edit | edit source]
Life Stealer Strike[edit | edit source]
Attack that deals physical damage, healing the Renegade for half that amount. (Cooldown: 6 seconds)
Double Daggers[edit | edit source]
Renegades throw 2 daggers instead of 1 on every ranged attack. Costs 225 Gold.
Blade Mail[edit | edit source]
Renegades reflect a percentage of all damage they're dealt to the enemy they are facing.
Range[edit | edit source]
Strategy[edit | edit source]
- The Renegades are average warriors capable of stalling weak to medium tier enemies and dealing a fair amount of damage, but they quickly fall to the enemies' overwhelming force when on their own. 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.
- As with Bladesingers, supporting Renegades with Forest Keepers is a good idea, as they can provide healing, a way to deal with grouped enemies and, last but not least, a good amount true damage.
- 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.
