User comments & debate[edit]

Slow is one of the best spells in the game, even though it is only level 1. Especially useful early in the game it can allow one's units to have first option at attacking. Ranged attackers such as Marksmen and Grand Elves can easily clear out slow, yet powerful guardians like Dendroids or Golems with this spell in effect.
