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

The Primeval Watcher fulfills a supportive role by paralyzing its foes. Additionally, its unique chain-damage attack allows it to be effective against multiple foes.

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


The little trees had been perfectly silent throughout the entire story; one might have thought they were sleeping. But now, after the old oak’s grand finale, their little branches fluttered excitedly in the wind. “Tell it again!” they howled. A little maple even loosened her roots from the earth, jumped up and down and exclaimed “Look at me! I’ll be a Primeval Watcher, too!” “Why, little wood, would you want to be a spirit?” the old oak asked. “I would never need roots again! I’d traverse ice and fire, looking after the whole Forest!” the ecstatic maple replied. The oak tapped her crown with one of his branches. “My big sequoia,” he said gravely, “in time you will learn that giving up your roots is nothing to look forward to.”

Notes & Strategies

Primeval Watcher, while not overwhelmingly strong in its attack capability, is very strong in its supportive attribute with Primeval Watcher Stasis Field Ability Icon.png Stasis Field.

Keeping the Watcher out of a direct confrontation is very wise as its primary attack dpesnt inflict alot of damage to singular targets.

Campaign PvE

Primeval Watchers are incredibly useful at shutting down enemy creatures with very high attack capability. Additionally, it can paralyze crowds which can be very helpful.

Random PvE

Primeval Watchers have a rather poor attack power, and their ability, while powerful; tends to be unnecessary due to the immense power of the XL train.

Spells will typically outperform this unit utterly.
