Undead vs Night Elf

Post by Ricirich91 » Thu May 09, 2013 6:59 pm

Welcome, this is a quick guide to win as Undead versus Night Elf (based on 1v1 / 2v2)

Why?
It's not hard to understand that Night Elves are extremely dangerous versus Undeads, due to Assassins, Rangers (Amazon), and Silver Glades.

Which Legendary?
- Forget Lich, one miserable royal assassin is enough to own him.
- Decay? It will fail due to glades, but let's see why we are going to win thanks to this City of Decay.

Why City of Decay?
- We are not going to build it for the damage over time that deals, Silver Glades will infact overcounter its damage easily.
- Silver Glades heal the area around a RANDOM ally: this means we will make waste many Glades on enemies that are almost fully healed (glades wasting in overhealing).
- Vs City of Decay, a clever Night Elf player will never cage hunteressess because they will feed you, or will make seriously waste Silver Glades.
- The goal is the following: he can't cage, he can't have low health cheap units, he can't have many units (because will spam glades)... you do what? Spam Death Pits.

So City of Decay + Death Pits?
- Yes, it's probably the UNIQUE case that decay + pits are a good combination.
- Remember to combine Decay with Pudges and (maybe) Wyrms in late game, so let's switch to the units part.

The previous part is refeering to special buildings, let's now see about the units:

Why Plague Bearers (pudge)?
- They affect nearby enemies with an almost everlasting disease that deals damage over time plus a single target damaging poison.
- His dots (plague + poison) stack with City of Decay's dot, so you will deal huge damage over time in the battlefield.
- Night Elves have no normal damaging units.
- If druids entagle him, it's good, he will lose aggro so many enemies will run around him, being so affected by his plague.
- You have no pierce damage against those light Night Elves, you need pudge's chaos damage.
- Spam him!

Why Wyrms
- They are not a must, but it is your only unit able to counter Faerie Drakes.
- Splash + chilling attack combine well with Decay, pudge's plague and poison.
- They have lots of health.
- CONS: Rangers will annoy them
- CONS: Amazon will extremely annoy them.
- they might be your key to victory if you care of them, by healing them with scroll and pimping their damage.

Additional units
- Not a bad idea having some Flesh Golems, with medium armor (no normal dmg incoming) and able to demolish they're magic towers in few hits.
- Not suggested Skull Pile, Avatar may get feeded from them, as well as owned by Rangers/Amazon.
