Succubus (Warlords Battlecry)
|Developer(s)|| Strategic Studies Group|
Succubi in the Warlords Battlecry game series are a type of Army, or unit, which can be summoned by the Daemon faction. They are an average flying unit with the ability to turn enemies into Souls when they are killed. The Daemon Titan unit in the game is Balora, who appears to be a giant Succubus.
The Succubus is an Army (unit) in Warlords Battlecry II and Warlords Battlecry III. The Daemon faction can summon them from the Pit and any Hero with access to Summoning Magic can summon one with Soulharvest. When Succubi slay an enemy unit they leave behind a soul that any Daemon spellcaster unit can consume to get more mana for spellcasting. Souls are very useful to a variety of Daemon units. They can be used to restore the mana of spellcasters (including the Daemon hero) and can be used to increase the XP of a Reaper by 20 for each Soul the Reaper takes. This is the primary use of the Succubus. Otherwise, they are quite weak compared to their cost. Succubi should always be used on accessible weak units. Against stronger anti air units, Succubi may get smashed down. Nonetheless, being flying units, this makes it easy for Succubi to traverse the map.
Balora is the Daemon race's Titan unit. She appears to be a huge Succubus which has excellent combat and damage. She is one of the few flying Titans and can strike multiple units at once with her swords. Balora's Flying ability makes her more fearsome than most other Titans, as most units cannot hit her. Once Balora has been produced, there is little that can make a successful counter to her other than excessive numbers of anti-flying units and upgraded towers. Her only mild weakness is her low hits compared to many other melee Titans. Some Lore indocates that she created the Daemons. If this was the case, then she likely based the Succubi on herself. However, it is not clear if this lore is official.
