Griffin

Griffins were created in the Mythic Age from the spontaneous magical fusion of lions and eagles. At that time the surface of Ashan was irrigated by dragon-veins, remnants of the Dragon Gods' wars, and animals that drank of these untamed rivers of dragon blood and magic were permanently altered by it. It is said that an act of compassion by an eagle who rescued a lion being carried away by the current of a dragon-vein gave rise to this formidable species.

Tactics:Edit

Griffins, a classic in the Heroes series for a long time, are a relatively weak Elite unit statistically, but they have decent hit points and a knack for avoiding combat except for when the situation is suited to keeping them alive. Their Diving Attack takes them out of combat to avoid damage, can hit anywhere on the battlefield, and has no retaliation. In addition, Griffins have shed their drawback of previous installments and can no longer miss with their attack because a unit vacated the area; they now target a stack when they take off rather than a space. But like all Might abilities, Diving Attack can only be used once every three turns, so they will need to stay relatively protected when they are not in the air. The Unlimited Retaliation ability can make it tempting to bring them directly into the fray since they can dish out massive amounts of damage the more they are attacked, but be cautious with this tactic even with the tougher Imperial Griffins, as they are not plentiful, take damage quickly and easily, and are not easily resurrectable via your Sisters because of their high hit points. The Imperial Griffins' Diving Assault ability is both tactical and surprisingly effective, hitting every stack in line with the target when they come down.
