Long ago, Gortak was the hero and protector of the miner dwarves, but lately, the dwarves and their new leader, General Atum, have been tormented and enslaved by Warthak. Now Gortak is back, determined to crush Warthak and save his dear miners!

Role: Attacker


Gortak is the first Warmaster to be released, and boy, has he stood the test of time. He's primarily an Attacker, but he also has some supporting and denying tricks up his sleeves as well. His Power and Life are great, his damage output is amazing, and he has a plethora of effects to back him up, such as Sunburn and Quicksand in one attack, an AoE Mega Stun, Control Immunity, NER, Dark Protection, and Earth Hater, meaning he can defend against his elemental disadvantage and isn't walled by monsters of his element. Furthermore, he has an extra-turn skill that applies a 100% Damage Mirror to himself, giving Anticipation users a hard time. Relics-wise, Mask can help recover or remove Stamina, but Armor isn't all that useful as he isn't a Tank. He also suffers from high cooldowns and bad Speed, but those are all of his cons. All in all, Gortak is a very versatile monster, and not one you'll want to go up against unprepared.

  • Trait Disablers such as Wickah and Draghar can remove his annoying trait.
  • Strong Dark attackers such as Helgudin, Zunobia, and Zorgon can deal lots of damage to him, but make sure they can get a turn in before he sets up Dark Protection.
  • CDA monsters like Lamia, Lord Pumpseed and Thundeer can activate his high cooldowns.
  • Monster with PER and/or NER, like Ingenica, can easily remove both his buffs and negative effects.
