I was thinking about creating this thread for a long time, since there was a serious misunderstanding between people who know how good is The Lunginator and those who refuse to admit it. I will try to briefly explain why the latter people are unable to evaluate it properly. From the first sight, The Lunginator is just a good weapon. There are weapons with better damage, and there are weapons with better tech. There are three Lunging Bashes, two Unnerving Strike and one Mighty Hack. Nothing to write home about, right? We have all six attacks with just 41 damage total. That's quite good for , but, again, nothing spectacular here. What makes this weapon Tier 1? Two things. The Lunginator provides right the tech your warrior needs. This is hard to notice from the first sight, but that's true. Lunging Bashes provide extra movement when you need it and they bash your opponent away, which allows you to stay at range 2 if you wish, or grab the victory area, or just push the opposing char on his own Volcano. Unnerving Strike is a great anti-block card that allows you to avoid wasting the low-damage attacks on luring out the possible blocks. So we have a bunch of really good attacks with the really good tech here, and the cost allows you to equip all three Lunginators to get an extremely stable, versatile and powerful warrior. The Lunginator is the best weapon for Crusher. Almost all attacks are crushing here (except for the Mighty Hack that deals enough damage without Crusher), so you are getting +2 damage on virtually all your attacks for 3 turns. Mass Frenzy provides the same +2 damage to all your chars, but only for 2 turns, you have to spend a turn casting it, and it isn't replaced immediately like Crusher. Nobody prevents you from running both pumps, getting +4 damage without any negative effects, and you can add Blind Rage to the mix. God of Lungination (Dwarf Warrior) The Lunginator The Lunginator The Lunginator Focused Crushing Raging Battler Captain Cedric's Helm Xander's Mail Hexagon Shield + add your favorite boots to taste. There are many great options, including Leomunk's Kickin' Boots, Quellic's Boots and many others. If you like more movement, add the movement boots here. This character is the ultimate killing machine. He deals much more damage on average than any warrior you've encountered at high ELO rating level, and he has enough tech to chase his target and avoid its blocks. Moreover, he has a lot of bashing/pushing away cards to defeat the range 1 warriors. Add your usual Mass Frenzy priest, and you're ready to win. Can The Lunginator be replaced? Yes, but the alternatives are worse and generally cost more tokens. So if you ever encounter this wonderful weapon at your Randimar's, buy it immediately. If you skip it, you're going to regret about that later.
