These huge white bears were brought by the dwarves from the far-off north, and specially trained for battle. Their ferocious teeth, powerful claws and vile-smelling breath strike terror into all those who cross their paths.OffBck

The whitebear rider is the alternate upgrade of the bear rider, the third-tier unit of the Fortress faction in the Tribes of the East expansion to Heroes of Might and Magic V.

The whitebear rider has higher attack and lower defense than the blackbear rider, and lacks the Armoured ability. The Paw Strike is replaced by the Bear Roar, which not only drives enemies away, but also increases the whitebear rider's morale and hit points.
