"A legendary leader of the Slavic peoples of Russia, Rurik consolidated the peoples of the area into a single group."


  • Rurik can deliver a devastating attack on a single tower or emplacement with his Strike special ability (drag the Ability button onto the desired target).
  • Very fast.
  • Doubles as Ladder Invader
  • Massed towers, especially fire towers and crossbow towers are his weaknesses
  • Wall units blocking his way. (After update 1.10, Rurik can kill wall units with single blow)

Offensive Strategy

  • There are two ways to use Rurik. His primary use should be for trying to destroy emplacements, however he can also deal massive damage to other towers, and even destroy them once his ability has been upgraded.
  • He is one of the more tactical heros to use, so use him carefully. He is also possibly the best level 2 hero.
