Tips and Tricks

  • Arivan is easily susceptible to ranged attackers if not placed right. Even with three stone shields, he can fall quickly to a group of Twilight Harassers and even Gnoll Blighters.
  • Arivan works best hiding behind a barracks and barraging the enemy with spells.
  • Gnoll Burners cannot set him on fire so long as he has stones protecting him, so use him as a block to prevent your units from catching fire while Stone Circle's and their upgrades do area damage to the amassed groups.


  • I bend all elements!
  • Elemental fury!
  • By the ancient powers!
  • Shazam!
  • (death) Arr!


  • "Shazam!" is a line said by the DC Comics hero Captain Marvel/Shazam that allows him to transform to or from his superhero form and it usually involves lightning.
  • "I bend all elements!" is a reference to the "Avatar: The Last Airbender" series, where many of the characters bend (manipulate) the four classic elements and the titular Avatar is able to bend all of the elements.
  • According to the developers, Eridan and Arivan are brothers, and sons of a sorceress and a druid. Arivan followed the family tradition of being a wizard, but Eridan became a ranger, becoming a bit of a black sheep in the process. As a result, the brothers do not get along well.
