Tigermen are humanoid tiger creatures found in the Orient (Act III). They are the most commonly encountered monster in the Orient. Tigermen belong to the beastman category of monsters, therefore are often found in encampments and with several warrior types complementing each other.
They can pose a serious threat to the player if encountered in large numbers, especially when lead by a Pack Leader.
Tigermen have basic elemental resistances (Cold, Fire, and Lightning) and sometimes wear special pieces of armor.
They are first encountered on the Mongolian Plateau.
- Prowler/Elite Prowler. Basic melee fighters.
- Archer/Elite Archer. Basic ranged fighters.
- Sorcerer/Elite Sorcerer (Champion). These white tigers are the quite powerful spellcasters of the tigermen and trained in various skills of the Storm Mastery. Spells they use include Lightning Bolt with Chain Lightning, a variation of Ice Shard (multiple projectiles dealing cold damage), and the Storm Surge retaliation buff with a chance to unleash a ring with lightning/cold damage and 1.5 seconds stun when they are hit. Sorcerers wear special pieces of armor.
- Pack Leader/Warlord (Champion). Black tigers using a melee weapon and a shield. Before engaging in melee, they usually cast a Battle Standard with Triumph upgrade, which provides several buffs to their nearby brethren. They also have a permanent aura active which increases total speed of monsters within a small radius. When in melee they use Disable to temporarily reduce the attack speed of their target by 50%.
Tigerman Heroes Edit
All three of Tigermen heroes are tough opponents and should be approached with caution. Jun Shan is a dual wielding melee hero, while Miao Miao and Shao Hsin are casters. They are always found in a pack with other tigermen and sometimes even come in pairs per pack.
