General[ | ]

Hurlers are ranged-attack units of the Dredge army and are encountered in the second part of The Banner Saga. They are a variant of the Slingers class, but come with an improved passive ability.

Passive Ability: Distraught[ | ]

When attacked, the Hurler moves three tile away from the attacker, similarly to Slingers' Back Off. Additionally, all Hurler base-class units that are within 5 tiles from the attacker, retaliate immediately, doing 1 Strength or 1 Armor damage.

Active Ability: Barb Stones[ | ]

The Barb Hurler throws black eggs in two unoccupied tiles, within a 2-5 tile range. If the eggs are not destroyed, they hatch one Skulker each, at the start of Barb Hurler's next turn. The eggs have Strength equal to that of the Skulker's and zero Armor.

Note: Barb Stones can be used to 'farm' Renown. Let the Barb Hurler throw eggs and kill the hatched Skulkers for two extra points of Renown.
