Skylords Reborn

Necrofury is a Tier 4 (Tokenslot Orb Neutral.pngTokenslot Orb Neutral.pngTokenslot Orb Neutral.pngTokenslot Orb Shadow.png) Icon Unit.pngUnit of the Shadow faction. This uncommon card was released with the Twilight Edition and has no affinity variants, nor a promo version.

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

A powerful endgame shadow behemoth that can unleash tremendously powerful siege attacks at great distances, but must sacrifice life points to achieve this.



Whatever sympathy is found for the queen of abominations quickly diminishes within its reach. It is hated by its enemies for delivering sudden death across forests and mountains, sparing the victims nothing but its awful stench. But it is accursed by its allies, too, for slaying the enemy before they can get their share - and for its awful stench. Naturally, its notion to seize its comrades and, ignoring their unavailing cries, separate their bodies from every spark of life within, spitting the worthless remains to the ground while it enwraps the unfortunate ones’ spirits and hurls them deep into hostile territory, just to explode in a blast of soul-tearing pain that haunts them through the afterlife, does not help its popularity.

Notes & Strategies

Necrofury is slow and cumbersome. But its orb requirements are forgiving and versatile, in exchange for the high power it gives.

One must definitely plan ahead with the Necrofury, as its strength can only show when its siege capabilities are fully utilized.

Campaign PvE

Necrofury is a strong PVE card that is strongest on the defensive, where Bone Shards can annihilate small waves of attackers. However, it can be utilized for a slow crawling offensive to annihilate dangerous defensive units gradually.

Use of the Necrofury is often terrain dependant. Use at your discretion.

Random PvE

Necrofury is a powerful unit for sniping dangerous defenses in camps, but its main weakness is just that its too slow. You usually won't get much use from the necrofury.


The 4th era is usually not seen in PvP. As such, the necrofury likely won't be seen there.
