The Doomux is a highly mobile unit with high health, attack, and defence. It is exclusive to the Cymanti tribe and replaces the Knight. The Doomux is stronger than the Knight overall; however, Cymanti cannot build roads, so the movement of the Doomux may be more limited than that of the Knight.

Strengths and Weaknesses[]

Strengths:

  • Stronger against stronger unit swarms. The explode splash damage will deal damage to all adjacent enemies, which is considerably more effective when taking on Giants or Swordsmen compared to Knights.
  • Tanking damage. Compared to Knights, which are relatively fragile and can have their killing potential greatly reduced by just taking a bit of damage, the Doomux remains a threat until it dies. Its higher stats and explode skill allow it to deal a lot of pure damage, weaken enemy positions, or spead fungi even after taking a few hits.
  • Attacking through rough terrain. The ability to cross Forests and Mountains without stopping or the need for Roads means that you can strike unpredictably through areas your opponent cannot cross effectively.
  • Mass production in the late game.
  • Hindering enemy movement. You can hinder a enemy units movement towards your cities or army via using a single Doomux and exploding it near the enemy units, poisoning them. It will deal damage to enemy units over time and force the enemy player to recover their troops to stop the poison.

Weaknesses:

  • Weaker against cheap unit swarms. The lack of Persist means that even though you can still deal good damage against cheaper swarms of Warriors and Riders, they will never be able to clear as many units as a Knight could in that scenario.
  • Clearing Catapults. Again due to lack of Persist, Cymanti does not have the capability to clear large Catapult chains as Knights can.
