Set 3: Dire
By Bruce R. Cordell and Rob Heinsoo
It Rocks: Its fast, has double-digit health, and inflicts god-awful
amounts of damage when it hits.
and Tactics: The Dire Boar is Drazens Horde new bruiser of choice,
unless youre planning to pull off fancy maneuvers. It wants to close
with the enemy as fast as possible. In fact, since its a Wild Troop,
the Dire Boar often has no choice. The only speed it knows is "full
Boar nearly always teams up with the Hobgoblin Adept, meaning that it
usually gets to benefit from the Adepts bulls strength
spell. Add up the numbers, and enemies want to destroy the Dire Boar
with ranged attacks. Killing it while it is in melee gives it one last
melee attack, ensuring that the Dire Boar rarely dies alone.
Who Hate to See It: Ranged attack armies are not fond of an enemy
that hits them so fast. But the fact is, hardly anyone is happy to see
the Dire Boar.
