he was my tank for a long while, until my alliance shifted to Purple. I often still flanked with him, though.

and in addition to his tanky stats, he hits decently hard - he made a nice combo with my Kiril / C-Magni / Lepus. very few heroes could survive that, and those that did were whammied with reduced attack and defense :slight_smile:
