Having discovered a powerful Tear of Asha during the Crusades of the Autumn Wind, Daimyo Oshiro of the Nagas thought he could harness the power of the Tear to stage a coup against the Eternal Empress. He failed, and he and his clan were sentenced to death. Oshiro made a deal with a Kirin, to transport his people to safety, at the cost of his own life. But Oshiro cheated the Kirin: using the Tear of Asha he created an unbreakable barrier, preventing the Kirin from claiming his prize. After 25 years of waiting, the Kirin has become a mad, spiteful creature, and will attack anyone approaching Oshiro's sanctuary.OffBck

Tactic[edit | edit source]

He does not make sense before the fight to make a huge army, because a limited army with particular combination appears (216 shades; 225 chakram dancers; 210 shadow watchers; 74 scorpicores; 84 faceless; 100 minotaur guards; 38 black dragons). There are 4 columns on the battlefield, behind these totally avoidable the effect of the "Great Tsunami" ability. Let the stack that was the target of the "Riptide" ability, move away from its place simply. Important, that let them not be the melee creatures each other too close, avoiding the effect of the "Frenzy Hailstorm Aura" ability so.

Useful abilities:

  • Evasive Maneuvers; Resilience; Stand Your Ground, Mass (to reduces damage)
  • Arachne in Level 4; Regeneration, Mass (to heals creatures)
  • Shroud of Malassa (trigger Shadow Pact)
  • Soul Mark (increase damage)
  • Reinforcements (increase number of target stack)
