Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Getting armor and evasion in combination increase your EHP a lot.
  • If you are low HP during a fight, escape and stay near the fight to regen then fight back.
  • A Tarrasque is effective against a team with a lot of burst magical and physical damage. The HP granted by the Tarrasque can tank two dagon level 5 (does 600 damage with 25 % magic resistance). You can also get a blademail to return the damage you tank.
  • It gives 45 damage to strength heroes, combine it with attack speed to increase your DPS.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The name "Tarrasque" references the Tarrasque, an almost undefeatable monster in Dungeons & Dragons, which in return references the Tarasque, a mythological dragon-hybrid that was tamed by Saint Martha.
