This card has been changed already, compared to its original appearance in BattleForge.

The Grimvine is a highly versatile, and powerful creature of Nature. Boasting mighty ATK power against structures and able to root opponents within its proximity.



With the sun’s tear came a forest of fire. It grew swiftly and spread over fields and mountains. The brave resistance of our eldest ancestors met the unappeasable thirst of the flames. Though the first generation of trees was consumed, it was not to be the end of us. For in the divine soil of the Primeval Forest’s ashes was buried a seed. It grew to become the Grimvine. Defeater of endless winters and planter of countless forests; no older Tree fends off the sky. Even though the Grimvine is only as strong as a single branch of the very first Trees, each of its own branches is stronger than any Tree that grows today.

Notes & Strategies

Grimvines have both a very flexible orb requirement and highly versatile applications. As a result, the grimvine can operate both on its own and with other creatures very well, and fit into a wide assortment of decks.

Campaign PvE

Grimvines are a solid choice for many scenarios. Their immense power against buildings is very helpful on certain maps where buildings are very frequent in the late game.

However, grimvines do not have any counter damage bonuses, so they struggle against opposing creatures that can counter them.

Random PvE

Grimvines are an iconic unit in RPvE gameplay for nature because of their versatility. They are effective at crushing spawn buildings quickly and serve to provide reliable ground presence.

They combo very well with the Giant Wyrm Card Icon.png Giant Wyrm in this regard, though they combo well with most end-game units.


Grimvines are not used in PvP, as they are a T4 unit.


One of several units with the Siege ability, making it deal significant bonus damage against structures.
