Today we’re going to take a look at Clashes in Conan: Savage Legends.
Combat is a huge part of how things are settled in Hyborea, and Conan: Savage Legends is no exception. In this game, the winner of a combat is determined by what is called a Clash. When your character is in range of an enemy, it may use an action to Clash with that enemy.
During a Clash, first, you determine how many dice your character rolls. Your character will have a base amount and type of dice they always roll during a Clash, but they may gain more from items, upgrades, and other game effects. Roll the dice and count how many Axe and Shield icons you achieved. Your opponent does the same for the character which you are attacking.
There are three colors of dice in Conan: Savage Legends, black dice, gray dice, and white dice. Black dice have the highest number of Axe icons, making them the best for dealing damage. Gray dice have a higher number of Shield icons, making them ideal for blocking damage. White dice have the highest number of Rune icons, making them great tie breakers and good for other, more advanced effects.
To determine damage, add the number of Axe icons you rolled and subtract the number of Shield icons your opponent rolled. This is how much damage you deal to them! In Conan: Savage Legends, two characters will deal damage simultaneously during a single Clash, so your opponent also adds up how many Axe icons they rolled and subtracts how many Shield icons you rolled and deals that amount of damage to your character. The winner of the Clash is the Character that dealt the most damage, meaning a character can even win a Clash while defending! In the case of a tie, the character that rolled the most Rune icons is the winner (more on Rune icons in another article).
For example, let’s take the characters Conan and Valeria:
If Conan targets Valeria with a clash, Conan will roll two black dice while Valeria rolls two gray dice (assuming neither character is upgraded and there are no other effects which alter their dice). Because Conan rolls black dice he is better at dealing damage, while Valeria’s gray dice make her better at defending.
Conan has rolled three Axe icons while Valeria has rolled one Axe and two Shield icons.
Conan deals one damage to Valeria (the total of his three Axes icons minus her two Shield icons) while Valeria deals one damage back to Conan at the same time (the total of her one Axe icon minus Conan’s zero shield icons). Each Legend takes a blow, and the battle rages on!
