Garden Terror

The Garden Terror is a summon in the Garden of Terror map. It is summoned on a patch of fertile soil after collecting 100 seeds (which are dropped from shamblers), during which the player that moves onto the patch within their base becomes the Terror for a limited amount of time.[1] It will die if a player does not take control of the terror within a minute of it spawning, causing the team to also lose all the seeds gathered.[2]

Description Edit

The Garden Terror is a very powerful summon, and contrary to the Dragon Knight, has moderate damage but extremely high health. Controlling the Garden Terror will allow a player to easily soak up huge amounts of damage while being able to disable enemy forts with its abilities. Because of the Garden Terror's powerful abilities and skills, gathering enough seeds before the enemy team can is crucial. It is recommended to support the Garden Terror with powerful Assassin or Warrior heroes, as the Garden Terror only deals moderate damage compared to the Dragon Knight.
