Catfolk Darkwood Spy Tactics[edit]

The Darkwood Spy uses its stealth and perception to observe its enemies before attacking, and will, nearly without fail, make the first move in a combat scenario. It begins it's assault with ranged attacks using its Darkwood Bow, but it isn't long before its curiosity forces it into the thick of a melee battle. In close quarter, they're more likely to resort to using powerful open-clawed blows as it leaves them less vulnerable to retaliation. If an enemy attempts to retreat, the Darkwood Spy will quickly leap at the opportunity to use their Predator's Bite. Most Darkwood Spies retreat after being reduced to less than 20 HP. However, in the event that a Spy is trapped with no escape, and succumbs to defeat, they may use their 9 Lives racial trait to instantly restore 5 temporary HP and shift up to 2 squares.
