Gremlins and Master Gremlins are level 1 creatures of Tower town. They are recruited from Workshop.

"Gremlins are indentured to menial labor around a Tower. While they are not great warriors by any standard, they are numerous and willing. Gremlins attack with their attached balls and chains. Master gremlins - those who have proven their loyalty - are cut from their balls and chains and able to hurl them in a ranged attack." RoE manual

Tactics and info[edit]

The information found in this section is subjective. Remember that each and every situation in H3 is different and may call for different strategies and tactics.

Master Gremlins are the cornerstone of the Tower faction, being the unit which is used to clear the map in the early game and the only level 1 shooter. Basically, since gargoyles have relatively low stats and golems are too slow, the master gremlins are the best candidate for dealing the most of the damage in early battles. They should be surrounded and protected by golems and gargoyles, letting the gremlins do full damage with their ranged attack. However, be aware that they have only 8 shots, but that's enough for early game. Later in the game, they may need to be be replaced by magi, with superior stats.
