Notes & Strategies

Stone Shards are very cheap to summon and are effective at tanking damage thanks to Adamant skin. They combo well with other Stonekin, like Aggressor Card Icon.png Aggressor and Crystal Fiend Card Icon.png Crystal Fiend.

Stone Shards have the potential to achieve an ATK power of 1320 / 1380 / 1500 / 1620 if they are engaging Medium creatures which match their Fury Counter. As such, try to summon them when faced with certain enemy types.

Infused is most effective against:

Blessed is most effective against:

Campaign PvE

Stone Shards are a straightforward choice for PVE maps. They tend to be strongest where large amounts of Beasts, Demons, and Undead are found.

Thanks to their low cost and Adamant Skin, they can tank for your siege creatures rather well.

Random PvE

Stone Shards are slow, and thusly have no place in the late game. They can however aid in the push to T4 as tanks.

Waiting to summon T2 creatures is not always necessary however, so these units will see varied application.
