Imperials is a Tier 1 (Tokenslot Orb Frost) Icon UnitUnit of the Frost faction. This common card was released with the Twilight Edition and has no affinity variants, nor a promo version.
In Skylords Reborn this card is available to all players as a starter card.

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

Imperials offer an unparalleled ability to tank damage in T1, but come with an expensive price.

Lore

Legend

“How much time can you buy us?“ the Mayor asked Captain Gaeron, nervously fiddling with his golden necklace. The heavy ornament felt more like a chain ever since his town had fallen under siege. Gaerod knew the answer but did the math anyway: the number of gates; the thickness of the walls; the strength of the remaining Imperials. “We can buy 10 or 21 hours.” The Mayor was confused. “Can’t you be more precise?”

“It depends on how you would like us to pay,” Captain Gaeron replied. “10 hours if we pay with shields - 21 hours if we pay with blood.”

Notes & Strategies

Although they are expensive to summon, Imperials are a powerful asset in the Frost arsenal. Their life points are the highest of any T1 S squad, and this should not be forgotten as they can tank a large amount of damage.

Imperials are also effective at killing Medium creatures, however they are most powerful when defending; where their resilience can pair with their spears.

Campaign PvE

Imperials are solid in PvE. Their sufficient stats paired with their abilities make them a great all-rounder for early Frost gameplay.

On maps where defending is a key aspect, Imperials truly shine as they are not required to move very much; making them a strong wall of spears on the battlefield. However, they do not lose much effectiveness in offensive situations either.

Maps with alot of archers or flying creatures can prove troublesome for the Imperials, as they lack methods to properly engage them short of going defensive.

Random PvE

Imperials, like the Northguards Card Icon Northguards; are a standard and reliable choice for rPvE in the lower levels. They are potent and can clear early camps when supported by Master Archers Card Icon Master Archers and other Frost units.

However, they lose their effectiveness quickly as the camps become more difficult, and do not see significant gameplay beyond the first few camps. And are not used at all in rPvE 10.
