Notes & Strategies

Fire Stalker is one of the most versatile units, but depends heavily upon the strategic use of Inner Fire to make the most of this card.

Running these units in swarms is the most effective method to inflict large swathes of damage.

Campaign PvE

Fire Stalkers are excellent for general gameplay, capable of dispatching mid-game foes with relative ease. Their capacity for siege allows them to function rather independantly from other units here.

Random PvE

Fire Stalkers can be useful for clearing towers and nuking spawn buildings up to the T3 monument, and thanks to their ability to switch combat styles, they can also get right into the thick of the fight.


Fire Stalkers are an excellent mid-game siege unit for players who do not own or have not upgraded Firedancer Card Icon.png Firedancer. Despite this card being overshadowed almost completely by such a card, they still retain value to a number of decks. Particularly Fire/Nature thanks to the aid of healing and CC.


  • Can switch between sieging and skirmishing at will.

Thanks to Fire Stalker Inner Fire Ability Icon.png Inner Fire, the Fire Stalker can choose when to move quickly and strike in melee, and when to slow down and bombard the enemy at range. This offers a great deal of control to the user.

  • Fire Stalkers generous orb requirements allow it to be used with other factions easily.

Thanks to its orb lineup, Fire Stalkers can be paired with cards that can ease its weaknesses, and compliment it in battle.


  • Fire Stalkers put out below average DP20 when sieging.

Due to Fire Stalkers slow rate of fire with Fire Stalker Card Icon.png Unstable Ember. It's capacity to inflict damage is rather low compared to other cards.

  • Firedancer Card Icon.png Firedancer is often regarded as being better in most attributes.

While Fire Stalkers are certainly versatile and effective, they are generally overshadowed by the Firedancer Card Icon.png Firedancer. Who's immense siege power grants her unparalleled mid-game offense, even despite her slower movement.
