How I Played "Armor Up" Rule | SPLINTERLANDS
Hello everyone, this time I am gonna show you one of my recent battle showing you how I play with Armor Up Rule and gonna try to explain why I picked the splinter element and the monsters I've used.
In case you haven't encountered this rule set yet (Or like me when I started playing and just ignored the rules), Armor Up Rule will give all monsters +2 Armor.
Essentially almost giving them plus +2 damage they can absorb. Almost since magic damage ignore armor.
Above are the complete ruleset for the battle I will show. Base on those, I've chosen to use Fire splinter because I would like to use 1 monster in particular "Flamesmith".
Why choosing "Flamesmith" is the route I picked?
Its skill is a big help for the ruleset. Its basic skill is "Shatter" have a great counter for the ruleset given.
And on Level 6, it will have another skill which have great supporting ability for team and great synergy for the ruleset
SUMMONER = MALRIC INFERNO ~ I chose this card because this is the only high level summoner for fire splinter I have 😅
1 = LORD ARIANTHUS ~ Using him because of its skill set which have a great counter to magic damage which ignores armor
2 = GIANT ROC ~ Deals decent damage and have good synergy with the summoner
3 = FLAME MONKEY ~ Another monster with repair. Good synergy with the ruleset and the monster Flamesmith
4 = SERPENTINE SPY ~ Great damage source with skill opportunity to quickly kill of low level monsters
5 = FLAMESMITH ~ I consider it the MVP of this battle, since the opponent have a monster with the skill "Protect", it gave Flamesmith the upperhand since it will just destroy any armor in excess of its damage
6 = ETTIN SPEARMAN ~ Deals a great amount of damage and coincidentally it has lower speed compared to Flamesmith and attacking after the flamesmith destroyed the armor of enemy frontline.
~Not even a single monster died in my team and the enemy team only have oneshot worth of hp left. It is not even a one sided battle from the start since most of our monsters have almost max level for the current GOLD League. He even have 2 Legendary monsters while most of my monsters are only common ones.
Using max level monsters is not a guaranteed way to winning. The best way is to make use of what you have. Knowledge and experience should be one of the things you use.
