Tips and Tricks
Cronan is a moderately durable melee fighter specialized in dealing with numerous very weak enemies. He deals a noticeable amount of damage and has decent health, although lacking in armor. His abilities center him around stalling multiple enemies at once(but weaker than Alric at the job), but do not depend on him to deal a lot of damage, so he is best put near choke points where he could keep enemies stalled and towers help him do the killing.
Strengths and Weaknesses
- Cronan can handle groups of enemies quite well, thanks to his two boar companions and the stun effect from Stampede, he can hinder enemy progress.
- Cronan is not a super tank like Alric or Grawl, but he can stll stand against certain large foes for a while, thanks to his decent health bar and Regeneration. Enemies like Immortals, Executioners, Gorillons will take a while to make a dent on him. However, you should watch when his health gets low, he should be retreated and healed before he can fight again.
- On the Steam version of the game, Deep Lash is a powerful ability that can cripple even Myrmidons, bringing them to almost no heath. Dealing True Damage, this ability is equal to, if not better than Alric's Flurry. It is advised to upgrade this attack first. However, the ability is much weaker in PC and you should upgrade other stats first.
- The Falcon is powerful when attacking melee enemies with no physical armor.
- Cronan is vulnerable to burst damage, such as from multiple ranged attackers or powerful enemies like Bloodshells, Saurian Nightscales, Saurian Myrmidons, Saurian Brutes and also Giant Scorpions. His Regeneration counters a portion of the the damage, the lack of armor may cause him to be bursted down quickly before Regeneration can make much of an effect.
- Much of Cronan's power comes from Stampede. Since rhinos cannot enter water, Rising Tide stages should not be played with Cronan. If used on a short path on these stages, Stampede is very weak.
- Cronan cannot handle flyers. Make sure you have Mages and Archers to do that job. If you see Poukai Riders coming, you should make Cronan back away quickly or else he will quickly die to the axes thrown by the rider.
- Cronan does not do much damage due to his weak melee attack. If you are looking for a damage dealer use Alric or Dante. His falcon somewhat compensate this, but it is extremely fragile. This is not accurate on the Steam version of the game, where Deep Lash was considerably buffed.
- Cronin is weak against poisonous enemies like the Giant Scorpion and the Savage Hunter.
- Master... Beastmaster!
- Big guy coming through!
- Danger is my trade!
- The hunt is on!
- (upon death) I'll be back!
- Though he appears to carry a small wooden shield, he has no amor at al.
- Presumably named after Robert E. Howard's Conan the Cimmerian as they do share a similar appearance. Cronan's accent is very similar to that of Arnold Schwarzenegger, who plays the character in the 1982 film adaptation. The name Conan itself is Gaelic in origin and means 'little wolf'.
- "The hunt is on!" - The name of an event that occurs between two characters in League of Legends.
- "Master. Beastmaster" - The catch phrase of 'Bond. James Bond."
- "Danger is my trade!" - A line spoken by the character Kalidor in the 1985 film Red Sonja. Kalidor is played by Arnold Schwarzenegger.
- "I'll be back - A further Schwarzenegger reference, spoken by the titular character in the 1984 film The Terminator.
