Overview

DescriptionEdit

The Grinder is a force of nature and one of the first sons of the element earth. With the power of the mountains and the relentlessness of the sheer rock it grinds the fortresses and houses of the humans, until only finely ground dust remains. Almost invulnerable, this walking millstone is a mighty ally in the foremost array of battle.
With the power of a XL unit, the Grinder is a proverbial tower of 4 orbs strength amidst the battle. Due to the Adamant ability of Stonekin, Grinder is quite difficult to kill, even after attracting multiple enemies. But due to it being half nature, it is also capable of healing. In the heat of the battle it can use its abilities to heal itself automatically. To do this, it relies on the strength of nearby allies - if more allies are close by, the stronger its regenerative abilities become.

People get the Promo Grinder to heal other Grinders (You can get 4 grinders with promo, which costs as much as buying 4x normal grinders, but already comes with max upgrades). This is relatively cheap for this giant power and health.
