Gnarlhorn is a rare Spirit champion from the Skinwalkers faction. He has one of the best control abilities in the game with the ability to provoke an entire enemy team. The ability reads ‘places a provoke’, this means it is not susceptible to a weak ‘hit’ and therefore, provided you have enough accuracy, will always provoke every opponent. This makes Gnarlhorn a fantastic protector to your damage dealers and is made even more effective by his A3 ability to make himself Unkillable. Gnarlhorn can be a great control champion for Dragon, Spider and Ice Golem right through to stage 20. He also has a place in teams in the early game arena and will be in end game faction war teams.
Gnarlhorn is also really strong in Doom Tower against Kuldath the Magma Dragon able to perma provoke him to stop his main abilities activating.
He also does well in secret rooms so if you are struggling and have him in your roster build him up as he is worth the time of day.
