Dust to Dust, low mr, low attack, low defense, nature (not native), enhancement (off-school).

Not to say that they aren't an excellent investment on a per gem basis.

It was a rhetorical question. However, its stats, in aggregate are better than any other agarthan unit. Don't understand the enhancement comment. Construction, conjuration and alteration are target schools for agartha.

It's gift of reason that's in enhancement.

They're certainly among the best units, and weapons, available to Agartha, but they aren't universally effective; I once saw a small horde of them destroyed by a couple of living cloud spells (under storm, though.)

With darkness and anything to boost their protection there's very few things that can stand up to them.

No it's not. GoR is in Thaumaturgy.


Good catch about the Troglords lack of headslot Chris, not that it makes any real difference.

It would be interesting to see how this strategy would pan out with CBM 1.7. Big Agartha boost and new earth booster, but nerfed forge lord and no hammers for spamming mentors. My guess is that under those circumstances there are better pretender options.

CBM 1.7 nukes agartha even farther into hell. PD 20 does not make up for the lack of forging which was EA agarthas only sane play.

I must be going insane, or was I this way when I started? I don't know.

(Or it's because of the symmetry with Gift of Health.)

Also, it's not 'enhancement', it's Enchantment.

No wonder these male enchantment products I keep mail ordering aren't working then

Damn Nigerians with their dodgy spelling, and ad-mail promises of seeing noticeable enchantment within just 2 weeks

And that's the last time I ask LaShawn Merritt for advice I can tell you.

Temporary insanity clause; but still, thank you.

No fuss Redeyes, everyone knew what you were all talking about. Just saw it getting copy/pasted all over the place and the little pedant inside of me cracked

And Calahan, the latest Nigerian attempt on my bank balance was from a woman with some sort of untrackable confection for a name, Xanthra Dreeples or something similarly stupid. Actually, that's not it at all but I can't remember it, which is WAI of course. I swear they actually use a random name generator and go with that. Such naive optimism! She was fleeing an irate prince and seeking a better life for her and her young child, with only her wits, resourcefulness, and multi-million dollar riches keeping the wolves from her door.

I was enchanted by the chutzpah and all the cute English errors, but not enough to send any money alas.
