Notes & Strategies

Tempest is very cheap for a T4 card, and is capable of putting out respectable damage despite being lower than other cards. Tempest is most powerful on the defense due to how slow it advances in part of Frozen Wrath.

As such, treat Tempests how you would a Tower, if a tower could get up and move on demand. Place them in locations in need of defense or those that cover a contested choke point.

The Tempest excels at felling airborne targets, and makes for an excellent anti-air unit.

Campaign PvE

Tempest is not well-versed in maps that demand alot of movement. Maps such as King of the Giants and The Treasure Fleet offer few if any opportunities to maximize the usefulness of Tempest.

Maps that depend on defense, such as Defending Hope and Guns of Lyr, provide the perfect environment through which Tempest can shine as it can root and stay put for most of its lifetime.

Random PvE

Because the end-game is essentially a conga line of XL creatures and constant movement, Tempest is naturally; a poor choice. Even when defending at T4, the creatures that would attack from a late-game camp will easily shred through a Tempest, and spamming them is a waste of power.
