With the Dark Elves[]

When playing as the Dark Elves, the Impaler is going to be your only enemy "mover," that is, the only unit on your team with the ability to move enemies. A good way to employ this ability of hers is to draw troublesome heroes like the Council's Ninja, or the Dwarves's Annihilator closer so to be in range of the Priestess for debuffing, and the Wraith for consumption.


Against the Dark Elves[]

When playing against the Impaler, you can attack from a range or in melee, but be mindful of the fact that she deals the same amount of damage ranged or not, and the she can pull you in range of her comrades. Taking out a buffed Impaler is no easy feat, so eliminating an Impaler or Void Monk early on in the game should be your main priority so as not to be pulled around while she's healing herself and the Wraith eating all your heroes.


Like all units, the Impaler's idle pose is different in health, this is an impaler at Full Health, >50% health and ≤50%
