"Monsters with ranged attacks are allowed to attack in the first position."
Normal attack accuracy applies.
|Top 3 Rulesets||Bottom 3 Rulesets|
|Weak Magic - paired with additional armor, this ruleset allows your ranged attack monster to deal more damage for a longer period of time!||Broken arrows - Ranged attack monsters can not be used. Avoid using the summoner Fernheart which grants the close range ability.|
|Aim true - Melee and ranged attack monsters will always hit their target, even from the first position!||Up Close and Personal - Only melee attack monsters can be used|
|Equalizer - Take advantage of the opportunity to equalize the health of your ranged attack monsters. Adding a ranged monster with Scavenge, such as Iza the Fanged will bolster your chances of bringing a monster with high health to the end.||Fire & Regret - Ranged attack monsters take damage from any successful attacks. This ruleset is not ideal for ranged monsters.|
|Top 3 Abilities||Bottom 3 Abilities|
|Blast - Paired with Blast, close range continues to damage the target and adjacent monsters||Inspire - This ability adds +1 to melee attacks - not useful for monsters with ranged attacks
(unless they have both: see The Vigilator)
|True Strike - Never miss a target, even from first position!||Backfire - If your opponent uses a monster or summoner with backfire, beware the returned damage from missed attacks!|
|Stun - prevent your opponent from attacking in the next round, increasing the likelihood that you will defeat them!||Return Fire - If your opponent uses a monster or summoner with return fire, beware the returned damage from landed attacks!|
- Fernheart and Runemancer Flore make a great team, allowing her to use both ranged and magic attacks until the very end!
- When paired with the Scavenge ability, Close Range can create a formidable monster! Iza the Fanged can rack up quite a bit of health before proceeding to the first position!
Summoners with Close Range:
Fernheart is an Epic Earth summoner. With a mana cost of 4, he is very useful, particularly in the lower leagues. Your opponent may not expect to face a ranged attack monster in the first position! An added bonus of +1 health makes him formidable indeed.
