Trample is an ability so fun to play that everyone have to try once. Basically, always the monster is succeeded in defeat other monster, he will be able to attack the next enemy in the line-up.
This ability become more powerful when it is combined with Piercing ability and Stampede ruleset. The Piercing ability allow the attack break in trough the shields and Stampede ruleset enable trample several times in a row.
To show this specific case I'll show you a fun battle using Desert Dragon!
Desert Dragon is certainly the right choice to show one of the situations to use Trample. At level 2, Desert Dragon is able to use Trample and Piercing, with a good damage.
The rule set
The strategy in this battle was to try to trample the entire line of enemies using piercing, hoping to find weak monsters to keep trampling.
Because this battle has a lot of mana, I decided to use melee monsters, using Demented Shark to amplify the damage done.
As my goal was to take advantage of the ruleset, I tried to spread the damage, using Sneak and Opportunity, aiming to reduce shields and lives, so that Desert Dragon is able to use its ability.

Tample in Action
The opponent used Shieldbearer as his tank. However as my monsters had a large amount of damage, they were able to eliminate it quickly. And with that, Desert Dragon began to eliminate one by one, using Trample and Piercing. This battle showed the potential of the Trample ability, using Desert Dragon as an example.
