Herald's Hymn is one of the cards in Stormbound: Kingdom Wars.

Overview[]

Herald's Hymn is a common spell that gives strength to a single unit and commands its whole row forward. When upgraded, the amount of strength it gives increases. Herald's Hymn sees play in aggro or swarm decks.

Strategies[]

Herald's Hymn works well with many friendly units in a single row.

  • When you have units next to the enemy base, Herald's Hymn can command them to attack it without having to wait until your turn again.
  • Herald's Hymn can also be used to push your front forward, forcing any friendly units to instantly attack what is in front of this. This strategy can be a good counter to smart structure placement.
  • You can use Herald's Hymn to command units forward in situations where playing Forgotten Souls is infeasible, such as when all nearby tiles are occupied.
