So in short, have the enemy forces wasting arrows on the physical barrier provided by the dwagon bodies before decrypting them, thus saving their HP.
Why not make a flying barricade? They should be able to bubble gum glue dwagon corpses (dead-precrypted or alive). They could also scavenge the dwagon armor and build a little bunker for Wanda.
I'm pretty sure Erfworld mechanics don't allow dead things to fly, or float in the air at least. Also I kinda doubt that Erfworld mechanics allow corpses of any sort to give a defensive bonus (i.e., act as a barricade). That'd just be cheesy.
If magic, battle crap or breath weapons can hit the archers that should be high on the list of options. Decrypted archers could then use the arrows on the still living archers.
Stuff like this weirds me out. See, either Wanda can counter-attack, or she can't. If she can counter-attack, then she should be able to do damage and kill units, inflicting terrible losses with those dragons. I realize she doesn't have a lot of ranged attacks, but aren't dwagon breath weapons ranged? It seems like most should be. And if Wanda can attack regular like, then she sure as heck can use those pliers. I can't think of a good reason why not.
I guess we'll find out. I'm sure a pile of corpses in Jetstone might be destroyed by a quick thinking warlord (Tramennis) to prevent decryption. It will be interesting to see what mechanics Rob shows us during the actual fight. I bet Wanda could decrypt across the zone, as long as she's being attacked, but that Jetstone will be alert to that idea and take some action to prevent it. Thus, it'll be necessary to decrypt dwagons as the fall in order to decrypt at all. If you wait until the dwgons fall, Jetstone will just destroy the corpse on the ground.
The dead decrypted flyers will not fall on Jetstone troops, but arrows that miss will.
I really doubt both of these. GK fliers will surely hit the ground, just like Stanley's mount in the pass to Faq. (Admittedly that was foolamancy, but no one thought it strange what happened.) And I'd really really doubt that any attack in Erfworld can hurt the attacker just because it was pointed "up." That sort of mechanic just never happens in any sort of TBS game.
it?" Dan, I'm not a Republic serial
villain. Do you seriously think I'd explain my master-stroke
if there remained the slightest chance of you affecting its outcome?
I did it thirty-five minutes ago.
