Here Piggy piggy pig…oh S&”% its actually coming.. Truffles is coming, this pig blows the wolf not the other way round.
Pretty slow for a mascot but she can at least keep up with some of the slower Butchers. Her TAC is average for a mascot as is her KICK, her DEF is average but doesn’t comes with any ARM and INF is standard for mascots.
Tough hide – Will keep her in the game longer which is great.
Sturdy – She is so big he just rolls back round to be stood up if you try and knock her down.
Smell Blood – Gives her a boost to charge models that have bleed on them and she does extra damage against them.
Short playbook as you would expect but it gets momentum on all columns which is great. This includes a momentous knock-down and damage on the columns. This means if Bleed is about and any additional bonus damage (Rage/Ox) then the piggy can actually do some nasty damage on the charge. OK its perfect storm but with Ox (trait and Legendary) and tooled up from Rage plus going into targeted Rage has already hit gives +4 dmg and with the charge and gang up allowing for some possible wraps you could easy go over 10 damage.
Hog Wild – Costs 1 INF, an unusual play as it allows her to make a jog the next time she takes damage from a play/attack. This is interesting as it can mean she doesn’t get locked into combat BUT she would take a parting blow as it isn’t a push. So you are going to need to be very careful how you apply this.
So the pig loves bleed, which means you are going to be looking at a team with Fillet, Rage, Boiler and Meathook about. The pig wants to charge which means you are going to want to have some INF on her, which means you are going to have to be careful how you adjust your INF balance in the team, plus she is usually wanting to go after someone who can hand out bleed to boost her speed.
What this actually means is both captains will find use for him, as Fillet can do the bleed BUT Ox is a bit less selfish with his INF as he is a walking buff machine.
The hard choice is based on the rest of your team, if Boiler and Brisket are in the team then princess is generally going to be more helpful as she doesn’t need the INF but boosts both players, while Truffles needs the boosting. She certainly gives you a hard choice on the mascot front though and this choice is probably more done to personal preference.
