Weekly Battle Challenge (4).png

Hello guys, welcome back to Ramadhanight's Hive Blog on Splinterlands Weekly Battle Challenge's Session. For this week Battle Challenge, Splinterlands have picked Pelacor Arbalest as the Weekly Monster, this is one of have monster on modern format, let's see how it goes!


~Lore of The Pelacor Arbalest~

Before we start taking about the battle, let's talk about the monster first. For those who loves a story, i bring you the lore of the Pelacor Arbalest

Pelacor Arbalests are armed with powerful crossbows enchanted to fire bolts at extremely long distances. They are trained to wield a crossbow in each hand and can fire both simultaneously with deadly accuracy. Compounded with the Pelacor's excellent eyesight and nimble dexterity, these sharpshooters are extremely useful as snipers on the battlefield.

But des she realy have the deady accuracy ? i don't think so because her speed is kinda low (sorry splinterlands 😅 )

General Information About Pelacor Arbalest

Now that we knew about the lore of the monster, let's have a look at his stats and abilities. The information about this monster's stats and abilities are shown below


As you can see at picture above, this monster have double attack since first lv which makes her a deadly monster to land massive damage. Combined with the summoner that give +1 range attack, she could give 6 damage in total on each turn, and the damage is splitted so won't get nerved by forcefield ability, and didn't blocked by a single armor because the first arrow might break enemies armor. At lv 5, she got flying ability to help her survive by evade the attack and escaped from the earthquake ruleset. At lv 7, she got 3 base range attack, that could helped her to reach 8 damage on each turn. Her speed is kinda slow, started with just 2 speed, this monster really need team speed buff or slower debuff for enemies to make sure her arrow hit enemies. She also got pretty low health with just 2 health at lv 1 and maxed out at 5.

My Lineup's Explanation :

Rules :


Before we discuss about the formation, here is the rules for this match
Keep your distance : Melee monster are unavailable
Splinter available : Water, Life, Death, and Dragon.

Summonerimage.png-1 Range attack and -1 Speed-1 Range attack is very crucial on no melee ruleset as enemies only have a choice of range attack and magic attack. I choose to nerve the range attack and get void dragon to nerf enemies magic attack and bring more opportunity with dragon monster
Tankerimage.pngVoid and FlyingHigh speed, Fying, and Void. Perfect as the tanker for this match to evade enemies range attack and nerf enemies magic attack. Suit arbalest for giving more time landing damage to enemies
2nd Monsterimage.pngFlying, Close Range, ChargeMain damager with charge ability, could landed 6 damage every 2 turn. Got close range so could attack at first position if tanker is fallen. Flying will helped this monster to evade range attack. Fit arbalest to deal high damage after enemies armor is stripped by arbalest double attack.
3rd Monsterimage.pngFlying, Scattershot, BlastDamage dealer for enemies backliner with the scattershot that could hit anyone and with the blast he could attack 3 enemies at 1 turn if it landed on the right monster. High health, armor, and flying ability for surviving longer. Fit arbalest for eliminating enemies
4th Monsterimage.pngSlowCould helped all teammates especially those with high speed and flying ability to evade enemies attack, and help all range attacker to hit enemies, one of them is of course pelacor arbalest
5th Monsterimage.pngDouble attackMain monster for this week. His double attack could hurt enemies hard, and if they got armor, he would easily stripped them
6thMonsterimage.pngBlastAnother blast monster, but this one is for enemies front monster. Fit arbalest for eliminating enemies.

My enemies are using water splinter with 2 magical attack and 3 range damager. My summoner nerf is worked well as enemies got axemaster just like pelacor arbalest that got his attack dropped into just 1. Everyting worked very well and i could win the match with 4 monster left.


Discuss About Pelacor Arbalest :

What i like about Pelacor Arbalest:
What i like about Pelacor Arbalest is her high damage potential. With double attack and 2 base attack, she could land 6 damage on each round, and could more with blast ruleset. She also got flying ability later for earthquake ruleset .

What i don't like about Pelacor Arbalest :
Behind those high damage potential, this monster have very weak defense. Low speed, low health, no armor, what could be worse ? Yeah she got the fly ability later, just wished enemies assasin won't caught her.

When to Use Pelacor Arbalest :
I suggest you to play this monster on medium mana cap, where her mana would suit. I also recommend use this monster on equal health to help her survive longer, and on no sneak ruleset to prevent her getting assasinated by enemies sneaker.

When to Avoid Pelacor Arbalest:
It is clear to avoid this monster on low mana cap because you will waste your mana for this monster. I also don't suggest you to use this monster if enemies are historically using assasin due her low health and speed. Unless you have taunt for help and great support for it



Pelacor Arbalest got high damage potential, yet have very low health and speed which cause her easy to killed. You need to use her properly with right rules and formation to get her potential out, or you will just wasting your mana for easily killed monster.
