Vyliria, a closer look.

19th April 2017 by Frank West0

The last Queen of the Woods may have dying flesh and a visage that inspires terror, but that doesn’t stop her from being a powerful ruler for her people. Older than some cities, the Elvish Grey Queen was once the Green Lady who sang to the trees in the sacred groves until they were all cut to the ground and burned by Vesh. Vyliria of the family of Ellion can feel the doom of her people approaching, but she is resolute, and as terrible as a storm. She will not let the world forget the glory of the elves so quickly.

Vyliria’s skills provide several passive upgrades that can make her much more powerful without introducing new actions, yet skills such as Tree Blessing require strong positional play.

Would you prefer to free a trapped worker from a creature, or would you like to move during another players turn?

Are you going to take Tree Blessing and try to keep near the forests, or perhaps explore tiles without moving onto them?

Which of Vyliria’s skills will you choose?
