Gorgons and Mighty Gorgons are level 5 creatures of Fortress town. They are recruited from the Gorgon Lair.

Special ability death stare

Mighty Gorgons have special ability death stare, which may occur after the stack has attacked, including retaliations. When the stack attacks, the successful death stare occurs before the enemy has a chance to retaliate. Every gorgon in the stack has 10% chance to cause death stare. Successful stare instantly kills the 'top' unit of a stack, leaving the new 'top' unit with full health. The stare cannot kill more enemies than 1/10th from the number of Mighty Gorgons in a stack rounded up. In other words, the stare of 1–10 Mighty Gorgons may only kill one enemy, while a stack of 11 might kill two.

Unlike most "magic" abilities, this works on Black Dragons, but not on the undead.

Calculation

PR% = 1 - 0,90^N

PR% = Chance to kill at least one enemy creature

N   = Number of Mighty Gorgons in a stack

Creatures immune to death stare:

Elementals: Undead:

Gargoyles:

Golems:

Heroes with a specialty

  • Alkin Alkin the Beastmaster has gorgons as a specialty, which increases the attack and defense skills of any Gorgons or Mighty Gorgons for each level attained after 5th level, and gives them a speed bonus of 1.

Tactics and info

This section contains a general opinion over the subject! However, that doesn't mean it's necessarily untrue.

Mighty Gorgons are among the best level 5 creatures in the game, and certainly one of the highlights of the Fortress town. They can defend your Ranged attackers, or with a prayer or haste or even a cape of velocity can go blow for blow with creatures far stronger than them because of their good defense stat, high health and incredibly effective death stare ability. Ideal strategy is to get them on the strongest troop stack possible (Azure Dragons, Titans, etc.) and watch them level opponents far stronger in stats.
