Test your Skills... Paralyzing Basilisk!
« on: July 22, 2015, 09:19:04 AM »
We get to discuss all about Stagger, a new condition, and one of my favorite creatures in Academy, the Paralyzing Basilisk! You can catch all of the amazing information >>HERE<<. Are you looking forward to more ways to Stagger your completion? Are you a fan of this new basilisk?

Neat.

So... what's a Razortusk?   8)

*edit* And out of curiosity, can you give us the full list of conditions that are present in Academy?  I've seen other cards that deal Weak tokens, and now we have Stagger.  That's probably enough that mess with weakening/reducing attacks, so I doubt we'll see Stun/Daze.  Also, given Academy is a quicker game, you wouldn't want too many conditions that can completely negate attacks or prevent creatures from activating, so I'd guess there probably aren't a lot of Incapacitation-type effects.  If you're going to invest in a Major creature, it would be "unfun" if your opponent had easy ways to neutralize them.

It's 1/2 of my go-to Beastmaster play. ;-)

Yeap, here is the full list of conditions in the Mage Wars Academy Core Set.

  • Stagger
  • Weak

We worked very hard to keep the number of keywords/conditions down. Obviously new expansions will add a few new ones. For instance when we add the Warlock, we'll be adding the Burn condition.

Great spoiler again. Also enjoyed the video very much that was posted on facebook. Hope some tech-freaks of the community will post pictures of the spoilers from there. Those look great as well, e.g. wychwood hound, stavoy king of the ..., joined strength.

One question remains.
Will there be a frost condition in academy?  ;)

There are only two conditions in Academy thus, no frost yet.

Now, I tend to bring up "Frost" spells a lot internally. I promise that we'll have them in a set as soon as I can. :)
