When multiple units are near a faeria node, the rule for who collects is something like left-to-right, then top-to-bottom (or maybe the other way round). I think it’s on one of the hints.
To me this seems arbitrary, asymmetric, and unexpected.
My idea is to decide based on:
- If the unit has special collection abilities (fortune hunter, luduan, etc) it gets priority.
- If still undecided, the newest unit gets it.
No two units are equally old, so no more steps are needed.
Huh, I guess I never really thought about this scenario. Especially if you have a creature that you want to harvest for their effect.
Yeah, I got Luduan from Spellwhirl and an Imperial Guard kept nicking the faeria.
On this thread there’s a screenshot of the tip:
The mechanics section in this article describes when they added it.
It seems like they moved away from oldest unit, and use map location.
I think they should change this so there’s less horizontal assymetry - do top-to-bottom 1st, then middle to sides.
So I’m gonna change my suggestion a bit:
- Special collectors still get 1st dibs.
