Active Ability: Battering Ram[ | ]

The Strongarm smashes into an enemy or ally, knocking them back up to 4 spaces, and pushing them through anyone in the way. Battering Ram does armor damage based on rank and adds 1 more armor damage to the target for each unit they pass through.

The ability can be used on both friend or foe, making it versatile in many situations by changing a unit's position on the board. Ramming a Shieldbanger does not trigger the Return the Favor.

Rank 1: knock back and do 1 armor damage

Rank 2: knock back and do 3 armor damage

Rank 3: knock back and do 5 armor damage

Lore[ | ]

A talented but arrogant young warrior was often heard mocking fellow Varl who would "hide behind a plank". An elderly giant one day challenged him to a duel. Laughing, the warrior accepted. in his first eager rush he was smashed by the veteran's shield so hard that he flew into the air and bounced off a tree, his ribs shattered and skull cracked. As the elder walked past, he was overheard to say "You only had one weapon".
