Notes & Strategies

Snapjaws are a valuable support unit that can make a fight much easier for you if used correctly. The affinity dictates how you approach the nature of the support, and neither affinity is objectively better than the other as they both contribute equally to making a fight easier.

It is recommended to keep Snapjaws out of harms way, as they are horrible in direct combat without other creatures to benefit from their Dilution.

Campaign PvE

Snapjaws are very helpful in Campaigns, where their Dilution effect can render many tough enemy forces easier to deal with. They are particularly useful at helping defeat Bosses in the later stages of a game, and as such serve uses throughout all eras.

Random PvE

Snapjaws can be helpful initially, but are not likely to see use outside of the first few camps. This is because they are slow, and the only way they can contribute is to be summoned once the train of creatures is advancing far from wells and monuments.

They can be helpful when fighting Bosses, particularly the Infused version as it effectively speeds up the process of killing the boss.
