In Skylords Reborn this card is available to all players as a starter card.

Notes & Strategies

Sunstriders pair strongly with Thugs Card Icon.png Thugs and Scavenger Card Icon.png Scavenger.

Basic Info

Sunstriders can be found on Battlegrounds in the fire preset. They are powerful archers with the unique ability to disable your towers and other buildings at range with Suppressive Fire. The threat they pose to you in combat is relatively minor but they are still an archer worth considering a threat.

Abilities

Bow Attack
Card Icon Autocast.png Autocast: Every 2,5 seconds, unit fires arrows at enemies that deal 11 damage.
Suppression Fire
Card Icon Autocast.png Autocast: Every 20 seconds, unit can disable enemy building's attacks and special abilities for 15 seconds.

Tips & Strategies

While their performance as an archer is not quite as grand as some other factions, their ability to suppress towers allows them to counter the tower pull strategy that can ease the initial push. Engaging solely with units, preferably small ones is the way to go.

Trivia

Non-Player Sunstriders share the same stats as upgraded Sunstriders Card Icon.png Sunstriders.
