 L. Lore 
+---------+

In a primal and violent time eons from now, nomadic humans roamed the earth in a
never ending struggle to survive. The beasts and creatures suffered mightily at
the cruel hand of man as the land was stripped clean by human scavengers and
natural resources were consumed with abandon. It was a time of hunger, disease,
and death for mankind as science and other knowledge remained untapped ancient
secrets. Humanity was fragmented into isolated tribes led by vicious and petty
war chiefs.

This was also a time of evolution and growth for the creatures of the world.
They developed an intelligence equal to that of humankind and formed communities
and packs in a new social order. Continuously subjected to humanity's cruelties
and deprivations, a deep-seated hatred of humanity was forever instilled within
them.

Life on our planet, now known as Newerth (New Earth), became a daily struggle
between man and beast for the basic natural resources that nurtured life for
them both. Ongoing skirmishes over food, precious metals and even simple
building blocks of stone escalated to the point that both sides became
threatened with extinction. Humanity's isolated tribes, at times united under
various war chiefs, remained so fragmented that their very existence was in
question. The beasts and creatures also failed to unite in a common cause and
continued to fight for their lives individually.

Out of this chaos arose a warrior of unmatched ability and leadership. His name
was Jaraziah Grimm, son of the legendary brutal warlord, Harrin Grimm. Following
the mysterious disappearance of his father, Jaraziah boldly reorganized the
remaining nomadic tribes under a single banner called the Legion of Man. He
created the Protocols of Grimm, laws which proclaimed man superior to the beasts
and creatures of the world. He excelled in his new role as a leader and human
commander. Under his banner and the Protocols of Grimm, he created a revolution
of thought as well as military power. Through his influence, the human clans
embraced common goals, such as the development of scientific knowledge and
rekindling the lost art of warfare to regain their rightful place of dominance
in Newerth.

During this time, the Legion of Man discovered ancient secrets of science and
war and quickly applied them to engineering weapons of warfare. Long forgotten
knowledge of chemistry, electricity and magnetism resurfaced and ushered in a
whole new understanding of science. Jaraziah's leadership, coupled with
scientific advances, began an era of unprecedented success for the Legion of Man
against the beast race. Victory followed victory as the Legion's influence was
expanded dramatically. The Legion of Man's future as the dominant power on
Newerth seemed assured.

Jaraziah's youngest sister, Ophelia, was a mere child during the renaissance of
the Legion of Man. Even at an early age, she was unlike any legionnaire. Ophelia
found peace in the outdoors amongst the untamed creatures of the wilderness. She
discovered that she had a special gift with animals, an ability to communicate
with even the most vicious of beasts. She was at first shocked at her special
talent but soon enough learned to use it. Flower buds opened at her touch; even
the most powerful beast was calmed by her presence and beasts would howl when
she waved goodbye to them.

Her gift was clearly supernatural and she successfully hid it from her brother
and the rest of the Legion of Man. However, she felt very strongly about the
open conflict between man and the beasts. Even as a young child, she openly
debated with Jaraziah time and again about her belief that beasts and man could
and should live together. Through tiring and seemingly endless confrontations,
brother and sister grew further and further apart. Eventually Ophelia was
ostracized from the Legion. She was secluded in her parents' home, hidden away
as an embarrassment to the Legion and Jaraziah, living as a prisoner.

Then one night, under a star-framed moon, a tiny beast creature wandered into
the middle of the settlement. Not knowing the risk it was taking, the young pup
was there to return a flower that had fallen from Ophelia's hair the day before
when she was in the forest. A Legionnaire spotted the young beast and an alarm
was raised. To her horror, the cowering, harmless creature was cornered and
brutally slaughtered. Ophelia, gripped with the true horror of what her life had
become, was unable to remove the memory of that night and the years of beast
bloodshed from her mind. Her hatred for what had become of her people and her
brother corrupted her soul. Like her father before her, she lost track of what
is good in humanity.

Nightmare and reality blurred; the days turned to nights until her torment
finally ended. In a waking dream, she determined that it was time for her to
escape from the Legion of Man. She spoke to the song birds outside her window
and with their help and with the help of nearby creatures; she did indeed escape
into the wilderness. She completely disappeared from the Legion of Man.

Ten years passed. The renaissance of the Legion continued unabated. However, new
and disturbing reports from the borderlands began to come in. They said that the
beasts of the world were reuniting against the humans. A new horde of creatures
was organizing under a mysterious and powerful leader. Some of the creatures
were similar to the ones that they had fought and killed before, yet new and
strange, and seemingly more intelligent and far more deadly than in the past.
This new Beast Race had learned the ways of human warfare and was making a
formidable new army.

Reports further came in that the beasts were developing their own form of
science that was unlike anything ever seen before, which human scholars could
only describe in the old tongue as magic. Now the Beast Horde had crossed the
human borders and was raiding and annihilating isolated settlements. There had
been sightings of a human woman, proclaimed as the Beast Queen, leading the new
army's successes.

A waning moon heralded change and Jaraziah realized that a new savage age is
dawning. It became clear under a blood red sky that the renaissance of the
Legion of Man had ended and the days of uncontested human domination of the
world were over.

 

The two armies are now in sight, the smell of battle is in the air, and the
drums of war begin a dance of death. Victory or extinction, glory or defeat,
the very hand of fate lies in the warrior grip of the SAVAGE.

 C. Commands 
+-------------+

All commands can be changed in-game using the options menu. What follows are
the default commands, to the best of my recollection.

F1 Vote yes on a vote.
F2 Vote no on a vote.
F3 Signify to the server that you are ready for play to begin.
F4 Showhide the current vote.

Mouse Turn left, right, look up, look down.

12345 Select item 1-5, respectively. Item 1 is your melee weapon, item 2 is
your ranged weapon, and items 3-5 are your extra items.

Mouse wheel (roll) cycle through items.

Mouse wheel (press) Zoom inout (Marksman’s Bow, Coil Rifle, and Lightning
only.)

Left mouse button Use selected item.

Right mouse button Use race’s special ability. For humans, this is the ability
to parry attacks, significantly reducing damage from them
and stunning the opponent. For beasts, this is the ability
to leap horizontally, though leaping consumes stamina. If
your stamina is insufficient, you cannot leap.

~ Bring up the game’s console. The console is used to execute more complicated
commands, but it doesn’t see much use in a regular game. If you bring it up
by accident, press ~ again to make it go away.

[Tab] Brings up the scoreboard. You must hold the button down to keep the
scoreboard up.

[Shift] Hold with any of the following movement keys to sprint in that
direction. Bare in mind that sprinting consumes stamina. If you have
no stamina, you cannot sprint.

[Alt] Hold to show your team’s current available arsenal. Unavailable
weaponsitemsunits are transparent, and ones currently under research
have a timer displayed over them.

[Space] Press to hop straight up. Hopping consumes stamina. Oddly enough, you
can hop even if you are out of stamina.

WASD Move forward, backwards, strafe left, strafe right, respectively. If you
hold both forward and backward at the same time, you will creep forward
slowly and silently.

X Bail out of siege weapons (Ballista and Catapult only.) You will appear as a
nomad with no ranged weapon when you bail out.

E Enter allied buildings. This will only work while you are standing next to
your command center (Stronghold for humans, Lair for beasts) or an outpost
(Garrison for humans, Sublair for beasts.)

C Toggle 1st3rd person view while holding a ranged weapon.

R Continuous attack. Hold this button down to simulate pressing the attack
button repeatedly REALLY FAST! Useful for buildingrepairing allied
buildings or attacking enemy buildings.

F Officer command. If you have been granted officer status, you can press F to
give nearby allies a context-sensitive command.

G Openclose the graphics window. This is the same as the graphics settings in
the options menu.

V Voice command. This brings up a list of basic phrases you can use to quickly
communicate with your team. The “Global” set contains basic phrases you can
use to quickly communicate with everyone on the server, friend or foe.

B Hold to disable the chat buffer, allowing you to see more previous chats.

T Global chat. Type a message to everyone on the server, friend or foe.
Y Team chat. Type a message your entire team can see, but the enemies cannot.
U Commander chat. Type a message that only your commander can see.

M Toggle the minimap.

L Go to the Loadout screen (only if you are unconscious.)

[PgDn] Toggle auto-attack. Pressing this once is the same as holding down the
R button. This can be useful if you must build a structure while
simultaneously typing to your team.

spectate name If you are on the spectator team, you can use this command to
spectate anyone you want. If you’re waiting to respawn, you
can use this command to spectate anyone on your team, though
it won’t work on opponents.

callvote vote Calls a vote on the server. Common votes are nextmap (loads
the next map in rotation,) concede (admit defeat,) impeach
(impeach your team’s commander,) restartmatch (starts the
current match over again with the current teams and
commanders,) mute name (force name to be silent for the
rest of the match,) and kick name (remove name from the
server and ban him from it for five minutes.) UNcommon votes
are elect name (impeach your team’s commander and make
name the new commander,) draw (declare the game to be a
draw,) shuffle (shuffle players between teams) and world
world (load the world named world.)

kill commit suicide and lose all your money. It takes 5 seconds for this
command to work. Use this command ONLY if you get stuck and cannot move.

msg name message type a message that only name can read. If name has
a space in it, it seems that only typing the first word
in his name will do.

ignore name you will not see any messages or voice commands from name for
the rest of the match.

unignore name if you have used ignore on name, this will reverse it.

disconnect disconnect from the current server. There’s also a button to do
this.

quit shut down Savage. But you know you want to keep playing!

slap name plays a sound effect and displays a warning for name to fight
right. Only a commander can use this command.

+------------------+
 G. General Hints 
+------------------+

When you first start playing the game, you may want to begin by spectating a
game or two, so you can see how players behave during a game. Look for people
with more kills than deaths or about an equal killdeath ratio.

When you join a team, you start from the loadout menu, where you may purchase
weapons, items, and units. Always pick at least one weapon, even if it is free
(see the weapons section so that you may make an informed decision.) Once you
have made your selection, press the SPAWN button to spawn at one of your team’s
spawnpoints. If a number appears instead, it is the amount of time in seconds
you must wait before you can spawn. There is also a COMMAND button, but do not
press it until you know how to command. Savage players generally have little
patience for people who have no idea how to command.

Being a commander is NOT covered in this FAQ.

You can build allied structures under construction by hitting them with melee
attacks (structures under construction are transparent and colorless.)

You can haul up resources from redstone mines and gold mines by hitting them
with melee attacks. Once you are carrying the maximum of any type of resource,
the game will tell you to move to the nearest dropoff point to give them to the
team.

While you CAN mine gold, it is far faster to kill NPCs to obtain gold. For more
information, please read the NPCs section.

Once you have spawned, try to follow people that look like they know what
they’re doing and do what they do.

If the commander selects you, a glowing green circle will appear around your
feet. He may then give you a command, which is accompanied with a visible
waypoint (it looks like a bright glowing pillar of light.) It is usually a very
good idea to carry out any commands your commander gives you.

On rare occasions, the commander will select you only so he can buff you. If he
does, make good use of the buff.

You can also send a request to the commander using special keyboard shortcuts to
instantly obtain such a buff, if the team has enough energy for it. I advise
you not to do so, however, with the single exception if the buff is going to
make a significant impact on getting your team the upper-hand in battle (i.e.
destroying an enemy’s forward outpost before it can be fully constructed.)

If you see a flag standing somewhere on the ground, it is a spawn flag. If it
does not currently belong to your team, strike it with a melee attack to steal
it, and your allies will be able to use it as a spawnpoint. If it DOES
currently belong to your team, drop a few land minesfire wards around it to
help protect it from being stolen by the other team.

Outposts are built to control resource pools and choke points, and to help
stage assaults against the enemy team. Help to build and protect your team’s
outposts and destroy enemy outposts; they are pivotal to the game’s strategy.

Most aspects of gathering resources, building the tech tree, etc., are managed
by the commander via workers. If workers are killed, it effectively cuts off
the team’s supply line. This is more crippling in the beginning of the game.
Therefore, try, if you can, to take out your enemy’s workers early in the game,
but make sure your team’s own workers don’t befall a similar fate!

Don’t call too many votes. People’s patience wears thin the more votes are
called. If you call a vote and it doesn’t pass, don’t call it again; it failed
for a reason. If you abuse votes too much, the next one could be a kick vote
called on you!

Generally speaking, instead of calling impeach votes on a bad commander, call
elect votes and name a player you know to be a good commander. Naturally,
you’ll have to play the game for a while before you learn who’s good at
commanding and who isn’t, but the very worst that could happen is your elect
vote could fail. If someone attempts to elect you to be the new commander and
you don’t want to, you don’t have to. You can single-handedly veto an elect
vote called for you!

It is considered very bad manners to try calling a nextmap, world, or
restartmatch vote just before the enemy team wins. It is also considered
cowardly to call a concede vote minutes before the enemy team wins. Nextmap and
world votes are called at the ends of matches or before a match starts on a map
people hate. Restartmatch votes are called near the beginning of a match if the
team has to impeach their commander. Concede votes are, IMO, best called when
it’s obvious that your team is losing, but it will take a long time for them to
lose (though the jury is still out on concede votes.)

If an enemy kills you, don’t whine about it. Nobody likes a whiner. Don’t get
mad; get even.

Savage is a very hard game with a high learning curve. It isn’t especially
friendly to newbies, as bloodthirsty veterans tend to actively seek them out to
kill them repeatedly. Don’t let this deter you from playing the game. For
every dirty trick a vet can play on you, there’s an even dirtier counter.
Learn them and prove your resourcefulness, cunning, and skill!

It is crucial that you learn how meleeing works. Humans rely on defense,
ranged attacks, and countering to conquer their foes, whereas beasts rely on
speed and trickery to confound their opponents. In melee fighting, a human
generally attempts to block incoming attacks, then counterattack, with the
occasional extra attack where they see an opening. Beasts generally attempt to
either leap past their human enemies and attack the side or back where humans
AREN’T blocking or they attempt to feign attacks to throw off their enemy’s
timing on blocks. Any attack style the beast uses can be read and countered by
a good human player with fast reflexes.

Powermining The commander places an outpost that is practically touching a
redstone mine. Once built, all allied players in the area turn and
face the redstone mine and attack it while simultaneously pushing
up against their outpost. This is absolutely the fastest way for a
team to obtain redstone, and is a very common strategy. Such
outposts are almost always placed outside the base; base redstone
mines are USUALLY close enough to the command center that it’s not
necessary in the base.

Back Door A handful of maps have multiple entrances to the bases. One or more
main entrances are easily accessible from the center of the map (or
more commonly used,) whereas the other entrance(s) isare
less direct and out of the way, or rarely used. The latter is known
as a back door. Many successful ambushes on an enemy’s base start
from the back door, so both commanders and players must be attentive
and occasionally check their back door to prevent such an ambush.

Forwards Quite simply an outpost built in an aggressively forward location.

Rushes One of the more common strategies is to surprise the enemy team with a
forward outpost and assault their base with some manner of powerful
weapon. Early in a match, the Horde sometimes will use what is known as
a “sac rush,” which consists of a sublair built near the Legion’s base,
and all beast players spawn, use the Sacrifice item, and blast away
various structures in the Legion’s base. By the time Legion players
react, the damage is already staggering. By a similar token, the Legion
will occasionally launch a “siege rush.” It works similar to the
Horde’s sac rush, except Legion players spawn as either ballista or
catapults and normally concentrate all fire on the Lair. There is also
such a strategy as a demo rush, though it is almost never seen anymore.

Frosting towers As its name implies, this strategy consists of attacking Guard
Towers with Frost Bolts. Frost Bolt has remarkably high
building penetration, allowing it to cause large amounts of
damage to a Guard Tower. A single player can mess up a Guard
Tower; two or more both frosting a tower can take it down
easily enough.

Turtling up The Shield Tower is integral to the common Legion strategy of
turtling up. The Legion’s commander builds a Shield Tower
surrounded by several Guard Towers. The Guard towers prevent any
intruders from approaching the Shield Tower and obscure it from
attacks by Summoners. This makes it hard (although not impossible)
to destroy the Legion’s base. All empires fall – you just have to
know where to push.

MiningWarding flag After a Spawn Flag has been claimed, it is a good idea to
drop LandminesFire Wards around the flag to make it that
much harder for the enemy team to steal. Although helpful,
remember that this is merely a deterrent; if your enemy is
determined enough, she will either clear away your
mineswards or make a death run for the flag.

Minesweeping Quite simply clearing away the enemy’s Land Mines or Fire Wards.
The Legion has two methods of doing this either they will walk up
to (not on top of) a ward and start blocking until the explosion
ricochets off their block, or they will throw a disruptor at the
ward, causing it to erupt prematurely. The Horde also has two
methods of doing this either they will walk up to (not on top of)
a mine, then quickly leap backwards to dodge the explosion, or
they will activate Storm Shield and walk on top of all the mines
(mines cause no damage to anyone protected by Storm Shield.) A
third, uncommon method for minesweeping can only be performed if
someone has died near a mineward. The healer rezzes his ally on
top of it. Since both the raised player and healer are
temporarily invincible while the rez animation is playing, the
explosive detonates, causing damage to no one.

 N. NPCs 
+---------+

N1. Chiprel

Appearance small, black rodent.
Behavior slow, stupid, and weak.
Gold pitiful.
Drops 1
The only reason to attack a chiprel at all is for a small chunk of experience if
they’re on your way.

N2. Oschore

Appearance 2 foot tall yellow bird.
Behavior normal speed, slightly aggressive, pursues directly.
Gold modest.
Drops 1
Oschores are normally seen in groups of 3 or 4. Two quick melee attacks
(sometimes less) will take one down. The gold they drop isn’t great, but it
adds up.

N3. Monkit

Appearance monkey carrying a spear.
Behavior normal speed, slightly aggressive, pursues in darting fashion, uses
ranged weapon.
Gold good.
Drops 1
Monkits are normally seen in groups of 3 or 4. Two quick melee attacks will
take them down.

N4. Bearloth

Appearance 6-foot tall blue ape.
Behavior normal speed, slightly aggressive, pursues in darting fashion,
powerful.
Gold good.
Drops 4
Bearloths tend to only respawn a set number of times before they return. That
being said, players rarely attack them.

N5. Mudent

Appearance 2-foot tall bearded…thing.
Behavior slow speed, slightly aggressive, pursues directly, powerful.
Gold good.
Drops 4
Mudents are excellent sources of gold, but due to their power, it is not worth
it to attack one ill-equipped. Use a ranged weapon or Carnivorous to fight one.

N6. Gerkat

Appearance brown-grey feline.
Behavior fast speed, highly aggressive, pursues directly.
Gold good.
Drops 1
Gerkats are dangerous NPCs. If you see one, keep a good distance away from it
if you can. If one chases you, there’s little you can do but turn and fight.
You can easily kill one, but it hurts a lot. Without the right equipment and
unit, 3 will have no trouble taking you down, and they do assist each other.

N7. Kongor

Appearance 10-foot tall gorilla.
Behavior fast speed, highly aggressive, pursues directly, uses ranged weapon.
Gold good.
Drops 4
The above stats are misleading; kongors are easy to kill. Just stand right
underneath one’s legs and melee it until it dies. For all their power and
aggression, they miss with their ranged weapon almost every time. They have an
insane amount of HP, though; it takes too long to kill one.

+---------------------------+
 H. Legion of Man (Humans) 
+---------------------------+

HS. Human Structures
--------------------

HS1. Stronghold

The command center of the Legion of Man. It serves as the teams first
spawnpoint and resource dropoff. If the Stronghold is destroyed, the Legion
loses the match. Strongholds can be upgraded twice (for 750 and 1500 redstone),
can create workers, and research Savages and Legionnaires. The first upgrade
requires the presence of an Arsenal, and the second requires a Siege Workshop
and a Research Center.

HS2. Garrison

An outpost structure. Like the Stronghold, it is a spawnpoint, resource
dropoff, and it can create workers. Unlike the Stronghold, the game doesn’t end
if the Garrison is destroyed. 

HS3. Guard Tower

This basic defensive structure automatically fires arrows at any passing
intruders. It can only be built within a proximity of the Stronghold or a
Garrison.

HS4. Shield Tower

Prerequisite Stronghold 2 and Magnetic Factorium
An advanced defensive structure. Instead of attacking intruders, it armors
nearby buildings (except for other shield towers.) If you attack a human’s
building and it barely causes any damage, look around for a Shield Tower and
attack it first. Shield Towers are an upgrade from Guard Towers.

HS5. Shock Tower

Prerequisite Stronghold 2 and Electric Factorium
An advanced defensive structure. It blocks enemy projectiles within the area of
effect. It is useful on the following weapons Chaos Bolt, Frost Bolts, Ember,
Blaze, Fireball, Hunter’s Bow, Crossbow, Pulse Cannon, Incinerator, Mortar, and
Launcher. All other forms of attack penetrate this power. The Shock Tower also
fires electrical blasts at nearby intruders and anything that uses a melee
attack on a Shock Tower takes damage. Shock Towers are an upgrade from Guard
Towers.

HS6. Mortar Tower

Prerequisite Stronghold 2 and Chemical Factorium
An advanced defensive structure. It lobs powerful explosives at any passing
intruders. Mortar Towers are an upgrade from Guard Towers.

HS7. Arsenal

A technology building. It is required to research any ranged weapons for the
Legion of Man, and must be present and operational for the team to be able to
purchase archery weapons (Crossbow and Marksman’s Bow.) Many human commanders
also use this building to block paths that enemies might otherwise take.

HS8. Research Center

Prerequisite Arsenal
A technology building. It is required to research any items for the Legion of
man, and must be present and operational for the team to be able to purchase
basic items (Medpack and Ammo Box.) Many human commanders also use this
building to block paths that enemies might otherwise take.

HS9. Magnetic Factorium

Prerequisite Arsenal
A technology building. It must be present and operational to allow the Arsenal
and Research Center to research magnetic weapons and items, and for teammates to
be able to purchase said weaponsitems once researched. It also raises the
team’s maximum magnetic power by 100.

HS10. Electric Factorium

Prerequisite Arsenal
A technology building. It must be present and operational to allow the Arsenal
and Research Center to research electric weapons and items, and for teammates to
be able to purchase said weaponsitems once researched. It also raises the
team’s maximum electric power by 100.

HS11. Chemical Factorium

Prerequisite Arsenal
A technology building. It must be present and operational to allow the Arsenal
and Research Center to research chemical weapons and items, and for teammates to
be able to purchase said weaponsitems once researched. It also raises the
team’s maximum chemical power by 100.

HS12. Monastery

Prerequisite Arsenal
A technology building. It is required to research the Chaplain, Ressurect, and
Potion, and must be present and operational for teammates to be able to purchase
Chaplains.

HS13. Siege Workshop

Prerequisite Arsenal and Stronghold 2.
A technology building. It is required to research Ballista and Catapults, and
must be present and operational for teammates to be able to purchase said units.
Many human commanders also use this building to block paths that enemies might
otherwise take.

in the Legion. Small size makes Chaplains slightly hard to hit.
Ability to heal allied siege units has some use.
Weaknesses Melee attack range and power are pitiful, even more so than the
Nomad’s. Both the Chaplain and the person he raises are vulnerable
to attacks after the Resurrect animation finishes, and most human
players will relocate instead of dying anyway.
Specialties Item 2 is a healing beam. So long as it is on your ally, he
recovers HP. Item 3 is Resurrect. Use this to raise an
unconscious ally (works only on allies displaying a red cross over
their bodies.) Item 4 is Potion. Throw this to accelerate the HP
regeneration for all allies in the area of effect.

and dealing major damage to enemy siege units.
Weaknesses No melee attack. Awkward movement. Tricky firing controls.
Limited firing radius. Limited ammunition. Huge delay between
attacks. Large size. Vulnerable to all fire and chemical weapons
and pulse cannon. Low splash-damage radius makes attacking infantry
nearly a pointless endeavor. Completely helpless against beasts
protected by Storm Shield.

+-------------------------+
 B. Beast Horde (Beasts) 
+-------------------------+

BS. Beast Structures
--------------------
BS1. Lair

The command center of the Beast Horde. It serves as the teams first spawnpoint
and resource dropoff. If the Lair is destroyed, the Horde loses the match.
Lairs can be upgraded twice (for 750 and 1500 redstone), can create workers,
and research Stalkers and Predators. The first upgrade requires the presence of
a Nexus, and the second requires a Charm Shrine and an Arcana.

BS2. Sublair

An outpost structure. Like the Lair, it is a spawnpoint, resource dropoff, and
it can create workers. Unlike the Lair, the game doesn’t end if the Sublair is
destroyed. 

BS3. Spire

This basic defensive structure automatically fires energy bolts at any passing
intruders. It can only be built within a proximity of the Lair or a Sublair.

BS4. Healing Spire

Prerequisites Entropy Shrine, Lair 2
An advanced defensive structure. Automatically repairs nearby buildings, and
fires Chaos Bolts at any passing intruders. Healing Spires are an upgrade from
Spires.

BS5. Wind Spire

An advanced defensive structure. Literally blows away enemy projectiles. It is
useful on the following weapons Chaos Bolt, Frost Bolts, Ember, Blaze,
Fireball, Hunter’s Bow, Crossbow, Pulse Cannon, Incinerator, Mortar, and
Launcher. All other forms of attack penetrate this power. It also fires Frost
Bolts at any passing intruders. Wind Spires are an upgrade from Spires.

BS6. Flame Spire

Prerequisites Fire Shrine, Lair 2
An advanced defensive structure. Shoots fireballs at any passing intruders.
Flame Spires are an upgrade from Spires.

BS7. Nexus

A technology building. It is required to research and permit the purchase of
melee enchantments for the Beast Horde.

BS8. Arcana

Prerequisites Nexus
A technology building. It is required to research any items for the Beast
Horde, and must be present and operational for the team to be able to purchase
basic items (Frenzy and Mana Crystal.) Placed in front of a Sublair,
occasionally Ballista players will mistake the Arcana for a Sublair and attack
the Arcana instead!

BS9. Entropy Shrine

Prerequisites Nexus
A technology building. It is required to research and permit the purchase of
Entropy weapons. It must also be present and operational to allow the Arcana
to research Entropy items, and for teammates to be able to purchase said items
once researched. It also raises the team’s maximum Entropy by 300.

BS10. Strata Shrine

Prerequisites Nexus
A technology building. It is required to research and permit the purchase of
Strata weapons. It must also be present and operational to allow the Arcana to
research Strata items, and for teammates to be able to purchase said items once
researched. It also raises the team’s maximum Strata by 100.

BS11. Fire Shrine

Prerequisites Nexus
A technology building. It is required to research and permit the purchase of
Fire weapons. It must also be present and operational to allow the Arcana to
research Fire items, and for teammates to be able to purchase said items once
researched. It also raises the team’s maximum Fire by 100.

A technology building. It is required to research the Shaman, Shield, and
Revive, and must be present and operational for teammates to be able to
purchase Shaman.

BU. Beast Units
---------------

BU1. Scavenger

Cost Free
Prerequisite None
HP 250
Power Low
Speed Fast

Small size makes the scavenger slightly hard to hit.
Weaknesses Melee attack range and power are pitiful. Scavengers are very
frail.

Prerequisite Lair 2
HP 450
Power Moderate
Speed Moderate
Strengths Versatile. No glaring weaknesses.
Weaknesses No outstanding strengths.

BU3. Predator

Speed Moderate
Strengths Powerful and long-ranged melee attacks appear to hit further than the
claw reaches. Hardy infantry. Low delay between first and second
strike.
Weaknesses Large size makes the Predator easy to spot and somewhat easy to hit.
Slow melee attacks make for below-par building speed.

BU4. Shaman

Cost 1500
Prerequisite Sanctuary
HP 250
Power Moderate
Speed Fast
Strengths Melee attack enjoys 100% penetration on any unit. Small size and
leap makes Shaman considerably hard to hit. Ability to heal and
revive allied units is useful. Ability to shield allied units and
buildings is indispensable.
Weaknesses A complete lack of any ranged weapons or melee enchantments renders
Shaman vulnerable without other allied units to cover them.
Specialties Item 2 is a healing beam. Fire it at an allied
playerworkerbuilding to restore a chunk of hisherits HP,
though the ability leaves a lot to be desired for buildings. Item
3 is Revive. Use this to raise an unconscious ally (works only on
allies displaying a red cross over their bodies.) Item 4 is
Shield. So long as it is touching an allied
playerworkerbuilding, hesheit enjoys the effect of amplified
armor, making Shaman remarkably useful for guarding buildings
against siege attacks and helping to push Behemoths safely into the
enemy base.

BU5. Summoner

Cost 4500
Prerequisite Charm Shrine
HP 500
Power Very high
Speed Slow
Strengths Ranged attack is capable of instantly one-shotting any
unshieldednon-blocking infantry and tearing enemy siege units apart.

structures and major building damage on the enemy base for extended
periods of time with their unlimited mana. Small size allows them
limited ability to hide in holes, corners, and behind obstacles.

recharge time. Vulnerable to all fire and chemical weapons and
Pulse Cannon.

BU6. Behemoth

Cost 7000

HP 5000
Power Extreme
Speed Moderate
Strengths Capable of laying waste to all enemy buildings with alarming speed.

Completely helpless unless able to close distance between himself
and his enemy.
