Gwen

BioEdit

Gwen is a former healer who is now afflicted with Shadow Plague.

Gwen grew up helping and healing animals and people, alongside her sister Gloria. They both practiced martial arts together, and travelled the Realm to help others.

While nothing could ever get Gloria down, Gwen was often affected by the personal tragedies they witnessed; they can't save every patient. That said, Gwen was always better in crisis situations because she is the more decisive of the two. Gwen knows that every decision about treating a patient or not treating one is a risk. In a tough situation, one might be tempted to do nothing, or to avoid taking any action that might backfire, but the correct decision is the one that maximizes the patient's chances, whatever that may be. Gwen has a practicality that her more idealistic sister sometimes lacks.

Gwen's understanding of the odds surprised many during her visit to the Pandalands. No one expected the foreign healers to be any good at Pandánte, yet Gwen won quite a bit of gold from Pandas. They were excited by the unexpected turn of events, and they were very grateful for her healing skills as well.

After Gwen's encounter with the undead in the Dreadlands though, she was never the same. There she contracted Shadow Plague. Her skin changed color and her humanity started to fade away, kept in check only by her sister Gloria's healing powers. Gwen grew restless and antsy. At times her adrenaline seems to be in overdrive. Gloria suggested they end their journeys across the Realm, but Gwen insists they keep moving. She isn't always lucid, so it's unclear what she's looking for, if anything.

    • Shadow Plague - During the draw phase, draw an extra card and take 2 damage.
Whenever your attack is blocked by a normal block (without special abilities), you may continue your combo against the block. If you do and use all your combo points, your opponent's block is discarded, he doesn't draw a card from blocking, and he gets hit by the last card of your combo.
  • FAQ entry added: You do get to search for ace if you do a 234Q. Your blocked attacks do deal block damage. If you use all your combo points and your last hit is a pump attack, you can pump it to hit for the base damage of that last attack + the pump damage. Your opponent can play a joker/bluff card when they block your first attack in combat (before they know if you will do a block string). Your opponent does not draw a card from blocking every single hit of the string.

  • ​King Modified: 2.4 speed --> 1.4 speed

4.0 -> 4.1

  • Innate Clarified (for 2v2):
    • Shadow Plague - During the draw phase, draw an extra card and take 2 damage.

Whenever your attack is blocked by a normal block (without special abilities), you may continue your combo against the block with attacks. If you do and use all your combo points, your opponent's block is discarded, he doesn't draw a card from blocking, and he gets hit by the last card of your combo.

  • Note for innate clarification: ​In 2v2 you cannot have Gwen attack (blocked), then tag, then have the incoming partner throw. The incoming partner can attack though, so an incoming BBB could get range that way. Note that if Gwen does multiple blocked attacks using her innate, then tags to let her partner do a blocked attack too, the opponent only draws a total of one card from blocking.)

4.1 -> 4.2

  • Second part of innate is now called "Relentless Strikes."
  • Innate Modified:
    • Relentless Strikes - Whenever your attack is blocked by a normal block (without special abilities), you may continue your blocked combo with attacks.
