A sworn protector of the land could not stay in retirement while nature was desecrated.
StrategyEditRutger is duty-bound stone warden of the land, and will protect it whatever the cost. He is a loyal attack-type tank with abilities that revolve around earth manipulation. Though it may seem that Rutger is a low-mobility character, his ability [Q/LB] BURROW proves that wrong.
STAMINAA special resource that allows player to sprint, dodge, jump, and utilize powerful dodge and sprint attacks.
While SPRINT and JUMPS consume stamina when player is IN COMBAT, DODGE always cost 25 stamina (one segment of blue bar).
Heroes OUT OF COMBAT slowly regenerate their stamina when they don't move actively.Stamina management, along with this ability allows him to get in and out of combat rather quickly, as well as provide him with an escape route from oncoming enemy attacks.
He may be mistaken to be invincible due to his substantial amount of his “natural”
SHIELDAbsorbs 85% of all incoming DAMAGE for the duration of the shield, or until the shield is destroyed (if it has a HP value).shield, but don't be mistaken. Keep in mind that once its gone, the only thing keeping you alive is his extremely low health, which can destroyed by most characters instantaneously. To keep this from happening remember to always use [Q/LB] BURROW not just for escape, but also to regain shield when it is just about done.
Tips and TricksEdit
- While sufficiently tanky, players who pick up Rutger should keep a close eye on their health bar. If Rutger’s shield is broken he becomes significantly more vulnerable, as his health pool is not very large. When your shield is broken, it might be a good idea to disengage.
- The [E/RB] ROCK BARRIER skill is great at controlling the battlefield and splitting up your enemies. Use it to block foes as they attempt to escape, or use it to aid your own escape by walling off a choke point on your way through. Be careful, though: your wall can also block your own teammates! If your wall placement is questionable, tap E/RB again to remove the wall.
- If you start to take a lot of damage in a fight, it can be wise to take a breather by using your [Q/LB] BURROW skill. This will make you temporarily invulnerable and will give you a chance to restore some of your shield. Clever use of this skill can extend fights long enough for your other skills to come off cooldown.
- Your FOCUSA special resource that is accumulated and stored throughout every match, and can be used to unleash a FOCUS ABILITY, or upgrade young creatures to powerful adults.
Focus requires to build up FOCUS CHARGES (maximum 3) before it can be used. They can be accumulated by dealing damage to enemies, healing allies, taking damage, and sometimes after being defeated and sent to the Airship.Focus skill can be used in many different ways.

In the middle of a fight, it can be used to disrupt the enemy team by bowling your way through as many enemies as possible.
