Armadillos and Bellwether Armadillos are level 3 creatures of Factory. They are recruited from the Ranch.

When affected by Haste, their walking animation changes to them curling into a ball and rolling across the battlefield.

Heroes with a specialty[edit]

  • Celestine Celestine the Artificer has Armadillos as a specialty, which increases the attack and defense skills of any Armadillos or Bellwether Armadillos for each level attained after 3rd level, and gives them a speed bonus of 1.

Some may find the information in this section subjective or irrelevant.

Armadillos are slow and have no abilities but serve as a living shield and backup for shooters. Due to absence of useful abilities and relatively bad characteristics among level 3 creatures (Armadillos are worse than Griffins with analogical characteristics) and Factory creatures separately, they may be used as an "extra" creature before the introduction of both Factory level 7 creatures at mid-late game. Otherwise, they have to be used like "reserve" units in Factory garrisons.

While both Armadillos and Bellwether Armadillos have very poor attack skill (even below average of all level 2 units), their high defence skill and above average HP make them somewhat durable. Celestine's specialty improves on their paltry speed, but doesn't provide much of a boost to their meek attack skill. Since their defence skill is high, Frenzy (especially Wrathmont's) should have a drastic effect on both Armadillos' offensive output at the cost of their durability.
