Default Fantasy Friday IV - Elven Melee Units


Happy Friday, everyone! This time around, I'm excited to share with you the first in a series of unit showcases. Today, we'll be looking into the three elven melee units - the Sentry, the Bladestorm, and the Grand Master.

Like all other elven units, the melee units will be able to use an assortment of special abilities, at the cost of fatigue points. In addition to abilities unique to certain units, all elven units will be able to use the following abilities:
Hide - making the unit invisible for up to thirty seconds - perfect for surprise attacks. While invisible, units have reduced movements and invisibility ceases as soon as the unit deals damage.
Oracle - makes the unit stationary, but drastically increases the unit's Line of Sight.
Magical Shield - magical resistance for a short amount of time.
Battle Dance - Initiative increased for a short amount of time.
Hasten - Speed increased for a short amount of time.
Every unit in Dawn of Fantasy can also gain experience and level up through fighting. With each level increase, the unit's health increases, and the unit is rewarded with a skill point, which the player can use to increase either the unit's attack rating, defense rating, stamina, damage, or the rate at which he heals (all units self-heal over time).

The Elven Sentry

Sweet swordwind, that's what I'm talkin' about.

I wonder how will abilities like whirlwind and tackles work on the battalion level. With tackle for example, does the the whole battalion charge, shield bash (or whatever) and knock down an entire battalion of enemies or does it somehow work more individually?

Some stats look a little weird but I'm assuming those are still wip. edit: Just noticed the tiny "note".

Maybe some abilities like Oracle should be reserved for ranger-like or spellcaster units.

What does initiative do exactly?

Looks awesome, will be interesting to see how stats between races compare. Like Jean, i think the stats re a little off-you make it sound as if Bladestorms should be better than Wardens, but they look about equal. Just my opinion though, I saw the note too The units look good though, I love the cloaks.

what i understood was the sentry is more defensive and the bladestorm is more offensive

though i think a battalion of sentry's might take out a battalion of bladestorm

the grandmaster is the best of both worlds and would destroy either of them

look at that armor and attack oooh wee!

Looks cool guys! I'm glad that you are making units so diverse with the abilities.

Does whirlwind hit all adjacent units,(or is it battalions?) or just enemies?

Wow love grand masters, their armor is just epic. Elves have just 3 melee units ? (<-joke) And i hope same will be made for humans as here and that you show paladin unit there =P (now i will go dream about it =)).
And just one question... why noeone uses spears (nor elves or humans as i seen), just those helberd like?

Halberds are basically spears, but with more versatility due to it having an axe head on it as well.
