Not to be confused with Crystal Critters (Gunboat), a temporary Gunboat Ability.
Crystal Critters
"Releases a cluster of crystal critters that heal wounded troops and disappear after a short duration."

Summary

  • Crystal Critters is a Hero Ability that can be used by Dr. Kavan during attacks.
  • It spawns a group of green critters that heal troops.
  • These critters last for a short duration and in that timespan can be destroyed by defenses. However they have much more health than regular Critters.
  • Unlike Dr. Kavan, their healing does not give troops Galvanizing Presence; it will not help reduce incoming damage.
  • The ability's cost starts at 8 energy, which increases by 7 for every subsequent use.

Offensive Strategy

  • Use Crystal Critters when your troops need some extra healing. The Critters will rapidly heal troops during their limited lifespan.
  • A good tactic to exploit Crystal Critters' high durability when you must flare troops rearward and away from defenses is to activate Crystal Critters first since they will end up between your troops and defenses and shield them from field to assist in flanking.
