The Provoker is a promoted unit from the Shieldbanger. His passive is Return the Favor. He has a base movement range of 3-tiles.

Ability: MaliceEdit


The Provoker curses and spits at his enemy, forcing that character to move to attack him and perform a normal attack on his or her next turn. With his high armor, the Provoker often takes little or no damage from the assault.

While Malice can be a difficult ability to learn, it's devastating in the right circumstances. Negate a strong enemy for a turn, pull an enemy forward on the board or lock a character in place to set them up for future damage.

Note: The effect of Malice clears on the affected unit's turn, not the Provoker's, potentially allowing multiple instances of the effect at the same time.

Rank 1:  target adjacent enemies

Rank 2:  target at a range of 2

Rank 3:  target at a range of 3

Passive: Return the FavorEdit

A character who attacks a shieldbanger loses 1 point of armor for each strike he makes.

Return the Favor triggers every time the Shieldbanger takes damage from an adjacent enemy, which can make it devastating to hit him with attacks that strike multiple times.
