Notes & Strategies

Morklay Traps are very powerful, and their explosion blast can decimate whole armies. Alternatively, they can be used as an upgraded Fire Bomb.

Morklay Traps are most effective in choke points, where enemies are forced to take one route.

Campaign PvE

Morklay Traps fulfill roles similar to the Fire Bomb, but their Explosion Blast allows them to crush approaching armies in a wave of destruction.

They can be used for many maps, but the most obvious is Encounters with Twilight. When defending at the screaming stone they can obliterate a hefty chunk of the attacking army.

Random PvE

Morklay Traps do not typically see use, as they come into play after the early game and do not compliment the fast paced gameplay.


Morklays are deceptively powerful in Player vs Player. When used appropriately, they can actually lock down a spawning zone.


  • Explosion Blast is extremely powerful

Explosion Blast deals an incredible amount of damage. So much so that most T2 creatures are killed or severely wounded by it.

  • Area denial

Like the Fire Bomb, Morklay Traps serve as area denial. But on a much larger scale due to their long ranged blast.

  • Dirt cheap

Morklay Traps only cost 50 power. So they can be easily built.


  • Incapable of attacking normally

Like the Fire Bomb, the Morklay Trap can only attack by being destroyed or using its skill.

  • Countered by Airborne Units

Because it cannot damage airborne targets, the Morklay Trap is extremely vulnerable to any flyer. Particularly Skyfire Drake Card Icon.png Skyfire Drake, Windhunter Card Icon.png Windhunter, War Eagle Card Icon.png War Eagle, and Shadow Phoenix Card Icon.png Shadow Phoenix.

  • Explosion Blast costs power

Morklay may cost 50 power, but to fully use it you will be spending 120-130 power.

  • Can be outranged by 50m siege units

Morklays skill is just short of being able to reach the dedicated siege units.

    • Damage was increasing on upgrade 3 without being displayed on upgrade cards. The increase in damage was moved to the base version, thus affects all upgrades now and eliminating the need to be displayed.
      • Changed the damage from 690 / 730 / 800 / 880 (2100 / 2300 / 2400 / 2640 in total) to 770 / 810 / 880 / 880 (2340 / 2540 / 2640 / 2640 in total).
