This card has been changed already, compared to its original appearance in BattleForge.

An expensive archer for such an early placement, but one that is made so very worth it. The windweavers ability to attack multiple foes simultaneously cannot be ignored.

Notes & Strategies

Windweavers are very powerful. But are also expensive and still suffer from the traits that limit archers effectiveness.

Even despite having the third highest hitpoints of the First-Era squad archers, they remain a fairly fragile target, and will die quickly if used poorly. Combining them with the Shaman Card Icon Shaman is a time-tested combination that is difficult to fail with, and has become a staple in most if not all games where Nature T1 is played, due to the incredible survivability offered.

Aside from the shaman, windweavers also see strong synergy with the Dryad Card Icon Dryad's support auras, particularly the blessed affinity. Additionally, they can back up Swiftclaw Card Icon Swiftclaw and Spearmen Card Icon Spearmen to cover for their weaknesses when in play.

Campaign PvE

Windweavers are incredibly solid in PvE. Their high damage and multishot make for a deadly combination that can work on their own or be paired with many other creatures to reach success. Large quantities of Windweavers can singlehandedly take down even extra-large creatures in some maps.

Even on higher difficulties, Windweavers effectiveness is still enough to warrant taking them. However, one must be wary of opponents with the ability to disable ranged attacks like the dreaded Twilight Whisperer Entity Icon Twilight Whisperer.

Random PvE

Windweavers are so good for rPvE that there is little reason not to use them. Even against unfavorable matchups like the Lost Souls, they are one of the best picks for Nature T1. While mileage may vary due to the randomness, they can generally clear their way to T4 with shaman and spell support. This can leave a lot of room for more spells in your deck when playing rPvE 9.
