Before match

▶️We need more firepower to cut through those goblins' defenses. See that shredder over there?
▶️That terrible-looking machine with the sawblades? We should stay away.
▶️Aye! I mean, no! We're stealin' it!


▶️Are we truly going to fight this thing?
Engineer Whirleygig
▶️I still gotta meet today's quota. Get outta here!

Emote Response

Engineer Whirleygig
▶️I ain't even reached the deductible on this mech.


Engineer Whirleygig
▶️I chop down trees and wear suspenders!
▶️Maybe someday I'll upgrade to a SUPER shredder.
▶️Time is money, foe! Waddaya think this is, a game?

Turn 2

▶️Careful, Xyrella. Goblin technology's not exactly the most reliable.
▶️Tavish! Are you worried about me?

Turn 3

▶️I'm not worried about you. I'm worried our beautiful new shredder's gonna be damaged.
▶️And what exactly are we going to do with it?

Turn 4

▶️Ah, just keep those healin' spells comin'. I'll handle this.


Engineer Whirleygig
▶️Hoohoo! And the shredder's still in one piece. All aboard!
Xyrella and Tavish take over the shredder


Engineer Whirleygig
▶️Welp, back to work!
