Shadow Champions are deadly, fire wielding balrogs.
They are the sons of Godieth. Their power infuses fear even in the bravest of soldiers.
Shadow Champions are large, difficult to kill enemies with lots of HP, heavy armor, and a powerful area attack. Upon dying, they vanish in a whoosh of flames, poisoning nearby units. Anything killed by this poison is turned into a Shadowspawn. Contrary to their in-game description, they do not regenerate health over time. In addition, like Twilight Golems, they are immune to any form of instakill aside from Regson's Vindicator spell and Wrath of Elynie.
High Elven Mages are the main way to go with damage support from sentinels and singling out from Timelapse
