Notes & Strategies
Shadow Insects are very easy to spam, and with their Soul Shock skill can quickly put out a great deal of damage. However, they struggle in a direct fight thanks to a low health count.
Shadow Insects should be protected by tanks that can absorb damage for them while they tear enemy ranks up from a distance with a Soul Shock barrage. Alternatively, running these bugs as a rapid-moving raid squadron can be a capable tactic since their attack strength is still considerable.
Soul Shock is the only way for them to deal with airborne threats, so try to leave some gathered soul energy if you have airborne forces en-route.
Shadow Insects are a solid and versatile addition to any PvE deck. While they lack the uniquity of their peers, they can be readily spammed and are capable of carrying a player through T3 in standard difficulty.
On higher difficulties, it would be wise to invest in more specialized cards for your map.
Shadow Insects do not see much application into rPvE, as T3 tends to have a limited selection of cards run by the players.
Shadow Insect, while lacking the specialist applications of many other cards remains a versatile option in Player vs Player.
- Costs only 100 Power.
Shadow Insect is rather cheap for a T3 creature, and can be spammed with relative impunity.
- Soul Shock offers easily-obtained ranged firepower, and airborne counter.
Shadow Insect normally has no ability to deal with flyers, something that Soul Shock counteracts. Furthermore, it is rather easy to cast thanks to the high hitpoints of many T3 creatures which can be gathered.
- Shadow Insects are fragile for a T3 unit
Because the Shadow Insect has low hitpoints compared to other T3 units, it can be rapidly killed by most opponents in direct combat.
- Shadow Insect tends to deal less damage than other creatures of its tier
Shadow Insects don't put out the same amount of damage as more dedicated cards for PvP, but is counterbalanced by its cost being cheap.
