Story[edit]

In All Hands on Board!, Solmyr appears as Gavin Magnus' messenger. He demands that Bidley surrender the Horn of the Abyss, but also informs him that he knows he will not. Solmyr then heads the Tower's forces in their failed attempt to recover the Horn from Bidley.

Some may find the information in this section subjective or irrelevant.

Solmyr is a very potent hero depending on the size of the map. He has access to Chain Lightning, a level 4 spell, which speeds up early exploration and eases mid game fights, the reason why he is considered to be one of the best heroes available and also one of the best Tower hero, along Neela (he does need to recharge his Spell Points often in early game after using Chain Lightning, though). Especially in small and medium size maps this can give the needed advantage to achieve victory. At higher levels, his Chain Lightning may become as powerful as Implosion in terms of pure damage output over the first two targets. However, in large and extra large maps, one of his starting skills, Sorcery, is considered somewhat useless, because direct damage from spells tends to be outweighed by the damage output of creature stacks as the game progresses.
