Loynis the Cleric
Basic infromation:
Loynis Class: Cleric

Specialty: Prayer
Specialty Prayer Casts prayer with increased effect, based on hero level compared to the level of the target unit.
Starting secondary skill(s):

Starting troops:

Archer Archer 4–7 3/4
Griffin Griffin 2–3 1/4
Starting spell:
Prayer Prayer
Loynis the Cleric is a hero from Castle town. By default, Loynis starts with a spell book and knows the Prayer spell. His specialty adds to Prayer's normal speed, attack and defense bonuses:
  • +3 to creatures on level 1–2
  • +2 to creatures on level 3–4
  • +1 to creatures on level 5–6, and
  • no additional bonus for creatures on level 7.

Although the description of the specialty states, "based on hero level compared to the level of the target unit", Loynis' level has no effect on the specialty.


Comments & debate[edit]

Prayer as a specialty would be most excellent, but Loynis' learning skill - which some consider less useful than any other skill - makes him a better choice for a secondary hero.
