Tips and Tricks

Rurin Longbeard is a hero specialized in Tanking. He has a rather modest damage output, but a lot of armor and health, able to take on most enemies that come in his way, save for Saurian Brutes, Saurian Myrmidons and Saurian Blazefangs. While he can survive well on his own, it is wise to back him up with some high-damage towers and Barracks, since Rurin's low base damage won't allow him to kill anything quickly. Retreat him as you see a Saurian Brute, or a group of Saurian Blazefangs coming at him, since he will most likely die against these enemies and pose a problem with his 35 seconds of respawn time. Other than those, he can tank fairly well, even versus the powerful Saurian Savants, and weaken multiple enemies with Hammer Smash. Use him tactically to ease down the pressure on your choke point.

He moves at the same speed of Sha'tra, slightly faster than Alric. So, it is advised not to move him around much unless his health is extremely low.
