"This Native Islander is ready to help our cause against the Blackguard. She protects other troops with crystal shields for a short period of time."

Summary

  • The Protector is a Prototype Troop that has no means of offense, but temporarily casts a crystal shield to a nearby troop.
    • Shield hitpoints drop over time, but it can dismiss any excess damage from a single hit.
    • This effect does not stack. Having multiple Protectors will not increase the Shields' overall durability.
  • The Protector is unlocked for players who have an Armory level of 13 or above and starts 1 level below the Armory level. It can be upgraded using Proto Tokens gained from events.
  • Shield Hitpoints deplete over time.

Visual Appearances

  • The Protector uses the exact model of a female Native.

Offensive Strategy

  • Due to the high capacity for what this unit does, Protectors tend to work better with other large units, namely Tanks and Grenadiers, as they are able to provide comprehensive protection, especially against defenses they are vulnerable against, such as Cannons.
  • Protector's Shield are ineffective against defenses that deal continuous damage such as the Flamethrower since the low damage per hit means that the Crystal Shields only serve as extra hitpoints; they negate little damage.

Defensive Strategy

Trivia

  • You can have a maximum of 40 Protectors in a complete set of fully upgraded Landing Crafts.
    • Note: Having this many Protectors is highly discouraged as it will outright eliminate most if not all of your offensive capabilities.
