Splinterlands share your battle 👁️ Opportunity insight
Nice ability, controversial.. Extremely useful and lethal in most occasions, a waste of mana or also dangerous in others.
In general this is a really appreciated ability and this reflects on card cost: quite high.
Opportunity is an ability of certain MELEE monsters to have as a target the lowest-health enemy monster. It is an amazing way to finish some nearly to die opponent:
- Kill rear monsters not reachable by snipers and sneakers (usually healing guys)
- Kill rear monster who has been weakened by some kind of reflect (magic or return fire)
- Finish tanks close to die (before they can be healed)
It's a very effective and flexible ability which adds a lot of more possible tactics and variability to the game.
At today there are 8 cards with this ability and we can separate them in 3 groups:
With screeching vulture (my favorite) being a flying scavenger (see uage here)
Here some tips about usage of this amazing cards:
Caution in playing with opportunity if you think you'll play against the following monsters:
Enchanted defender is the second more armored card in the game (behind only the 10 armor of diamond dragon) and having only 1 health he probably will be opportunity target. Really dangerous that thorns!
Exploding Dwarf is the enemy number one. Infact, when hitten by opportunity he will retaliate with a 50% probability: 6 PIERCING MELEE + BLAST + TRAMPLE. Really, really dangerous!
This can happen:
At the same time opportunity is really effective (but high Miss! chance) against:
The Match ⚔️🛡️
I wrote a lot about the ability. The match is a simple example of pairing it with other functional monsters:
I played a strong card as a tank, then put puppets for enemy opportunity and then placed my spy ready to attack retaliated sneakers.
The tactic was a success: Spy + Cerberus worked perfectly together and SPEED drove me to victory!
Thanks for reading, cheers!
