Confused Storm demons

Hi,

storm demons have thunder fist and lightning as their weapons. How do they work? Are these melee or ranged attacks?

In other words, should I give my demon legions attack or fire orders? And what is their effectiveness?

All help appreciated!

Default Re: Storm demons

One is ranged (lightning), the other is melee. Hold and attack wouldn't be a bad command.

You could also try getting a staff of storms or Tempest for your commander, to tap into their storm bonus. And remember that they can fly during storms.

Don't I have to give them fire orders to unleash their lightnings?

Units with a ranged attack will use the attack when told to hold. After they are done holding, they will close to melee (and since storm demons are fliers, that's instantaneous).

One odd and fun thing about storm demons is that their ranged lightning attack works underwater which in effect makes them artillery without compare down there.

This is one of the things many mods change.
