Look closely at Tumu before passing on him. His attack strength is not too impressive, but he gets Blade Master and 1 random fighter pick to boost his attack strength. However, be careful not to overlook his ability to Poison his opponents. Poison is a real beauty because it does not work against the opponents shields, but instead on a roll of the dice. In Tumu's example, when attacking or counter-attacking a unit, the unit must make 5 resistance rolls. For each roll the unit fails, it loses a hit point! This can be extremely handy against a unit that has a lot of shields, but only a few hit points. Tumu slips right past their defense and does his damage!

Unfortunately, Tumu's Poison attacks do not increase with his experience levels. However, it is still extremely useful.

As far as Tumu's 1 random fighter pick, pray for:
